EwinRacing Champion Series Gaming Chair Review

Since reviewing our first gaming chair we’ve come to the realization that these things are not just hype. They actually are comfortable, offer better support than normal offer chairs, and let’s face it look pretty damn awesome too! Today we have our second gaming chair, this one comes from EwinRacing. EwinRacing solely makes gaming chairs and offers quite a few different variants. Today we are taking a look at their Champion Series gaming chair, more specifically the CP-BR1B version which is black with blue trim and has a pillow and lumbar support. Will this gaming chair match up to our high expectations after our review of the Tesoro Zone Balance gaming chair? Read on as we find out!

Opening the box up everything is nicely packaged and protected.

Getting everything out of the box you’ll see that the chair comes disassembled, which is pretty much standard when it comes to these chairs. EwinRacing provides all of the parts and everything you need to fully assemble the chair.

EwinRacing Champion Series Gaming Chair Overview
The Champion Series Gaming Chair takes about 15-20 minutes to fully put together. I found installation to be pretty easy since I had previously put a chair like this together. As you can see we received the black version of the chair with blue accents. It also comes in orange, pink, purple, green, and red accent colors. Of course this chair is fashioned after a real racing chair, not only that it is designed that way. The chair is made of a durable steel frame that is wrapped in a high density memory foam.

The entire chair as well as the two pillows are wrapped in what looks like leather, but it is polyurethane faux leather. This is very common in most gaming chairs in this price range. As for the included pillows there is a small pillow for your head and a larger one to give you lumbar support. Both of these pillows are adjustable and can be fully removed if you like.

Taking a look at the chair from the side you can see how the frame is designed to mold around your body. This means that when you are sitting in the chair it will be very comfortable, even after long hours of gaming. The chair offers tilt and height controls. You can tilt the chair back to 155 degrees which is great for relaxing and watching movies. The controls for both the tilt and height adjustment are located on the right side of the chair and are pretty easy to use.

The armrests on this chair are what as known as 4D adjustable armrests. You can rotate them or set their angle, move them further apart or closer together, move them forward or backwards, and adjust their height. This gives you the ultimate customization when it comes to getting the perfect setting for your gaming / sitting style. There are controls on each armrest which makes it easy to adjust them.

Usage & Final Thoughts
I have been using the Champion Series Gaming Chair for about 3 weeks now and I have to say I do like it. I spend anywhere from 4-8 hours a day sitting down at my computer, so I have definitely broken the chair in over the past few weeks. As I mentioned earlier in this review this is our second gaming chair. The first one was the Tesoro Zone Balance. Since both of these have very close price points ($229 vs $279) we figured it would be a good idea to compare them and see which features of each chair we like the best.

The first thing I can say about the EwinRacing Champion Series Gaming Chair is that it molds around your body much better than the Tesoro chair. When I sit in the chair I feel I sink into it more. It seems like EwinRacing has used better quality foam, which makes for a more comfortable feel. I definitely prefer sitting in this chair over the Tesoro chair.

The adjustments on the chairs are pretty much the same otherwise, although you do get more customization with the armrests with the EwinRacing chair. But at the same time the armrests on the EwinRacing chair seem a little more flimsy and move around quite a bit. The Tesoro chair has a larger head pillow, which I really do like. The head pillow on the EWinRacing chair is just too small and really is pointless in my opinion.

Again with both chairs I do not like the part of the chair which connects to two pieces. This is an aesthetic thing, but its covered with plastic and just not look that good.

If you are looking at upgrading your current chair situation or outfitting a new office with chairs the EwinRacing Champion Series Gaming Chair is a great choice and one that I can totally recommend. If you are doing any type of long-term sitting at your computer one of these chairs will definitely help your situation and once you use a chair like this you won’t go back.

This chair currently sells for $279 and I can definitely agree with that price. Overall ThinkComputers gives the EwinRacing Champion Series Gaming Chair a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!

– Extremely comfortable
– Easily adjustable
– Offered in many different colors
– Does not take that long to put together
– Lumbar support

– Head pillow is sort of useless
– Armrests are a little flimsy
