DON’T SETTLE FOR SUBPAR SEATING
As someone who sits at an office desk all day long and sometimes night long, I know the importance of using a good chair. Sitting in subpar chairs can really tear your back up once you pull yourself away from your game or work. With that said, about two months ago, I started having some terrible problems with my back. I’m still not sure why there was a sudden onset of problems but suddenly – there it was — a horrible tightness in the middle of my back. It seemed as though no matter how I sat or moved around, I couldn’t get comfortable.
A few years ago, I had invested in an ergonomic chair that I thought might last me for many years to come. As it turns out, the chair was exacerbating the back problem I now have. I’m not sure that it was the cause, but it wasn’t helping. That’s when I started looking into a new office solution for my aching back. I decided that looking closely at the gaming chair options that are available would be a good plan since they are made for long-term use. That’s when I found the Flash XL Gaming Chair from EWIN and I fell in love.
The Flash XL Gaming Chair has some great features to it. For starters, it’s built on a durable steel frame and is supported by a 120MM Class-4 Gas Lift as well as a metal 5-star wheelbase. The cushioning is made from cold molding foam (high-density memory foam). With it being an ‘XL’ size chair, it can support up to 330 pounds from its users. When you sit in it you feel the difference, between the high-quality foam and lesser quality chair stuffing.
The Flash XL Gaming Chair has a lot of adjustments available that make it possible for you to have the just right feeling for your needs.
4D Adjustable Armrests
- Surface covered with polyurethane for durability and comfort
- Front/Back/Left/Right sliding functions
- Clockwise/Counterclockwise rotations
- Vertical Adjustments
Adjustable Height: Seat will raise and lower with the lever on the side.
Back Recliner: Chair will recline between 85-155 degrees.
Tilt & Lock Mechanism: The seat and back will tilt and lock into various positions. It’s installed with safety and a Class-4 gas lift piston.
When I first received my chair I was bouncing off the wall to get it set up. The chair arrived in a very large box with the pieces of the chair individually wrapped up and packaged carefully so as not to damage them. There were major pieces of the chair pre-assembled, but the back and seat needed to be attached and then mounted to the wheeled base. All in all, assembly only took about 30 minutes. You are provided all the necessary tools for assembly and it comes together quite easily. I was a little concerned when I found a tear in the side of the back, but as it turns out, that was an opening for a structural screw to go into from the side bracket.
Once the chair is assembled, it’s ready to use. There are no complicated instructions or special needs for the chair operation. You have the option to recline or move the armrests around as you like – they are fully articulating. The seat cushion is firm but very comfortable. The pillows are supportive and make a real difference if you are sitting for long periods of time. I have been very impressed by the wheels. I know that sounds a little odd given the fact that it’s a gaming chair, but usually, the first things that break on me are the wheels of a chair. They are large, wide and roll around effortlessly on the carpet.
I was met with a bit of a disappointment after getting my chair assembled due to one of the arms weld snapping off. The arm had basically fallen off. This was a big let down but as is the case with any product, you will find that not everything will be perfect. I reached out to EWIN support and they apologized for the unfortunate defect in the arm weld and offered to send out a brand new arm. They promptly sent a replacement and three days later, I had a new arm in-hand and my chair was as good as new.
The XL size chair is made for taller people and can hold more weight than the average gaming chair. The chair has a variety of adjustments that can suit even the pickiest person – like me. The included pillows lumbar and head you would think that they might be a gimmick but I assure you they are not. I use these pillows to adjust myself in so many ways.
I have had the opportunity to check out lots of cool chairs and gaming chairs over the years and the EWin Flash XL is just wonderful. I really enjoy the rocking ability that it has and have felt like I’ve been pretty much floating on clouds when using it. For anyone sitting long hours behind a desk no matter if you are gaming or doing office work, the EWin Flash XL will be a match made in heaven. Since I’ve had this chair, I’ve been able to sit comfortably for hours at a time and I’ve even noticed that my back problems are not as severe as there were before I started using this chair. It’s well-constructed, comfortable and it looks great!

EWIN FLASH XL SERIES GAMING CHAIR REVISITED
A GREAT PRODUCT RESCUED BY A GREAT WARRANTY EXPERIENCE
Take it from someone who spends most of their waking hours sitting at a desk — you don’t want low-quality seating. It becomes a pain in the — well, you know. For the past month, I have had to adapt (as I know most of us have) to working at home. While we have a workspace set up in one of our family room areas, I’ve needed to set up a secondary home office in our dining room so that I could work from home and keep that separate from our review-writing area. One of the first things I did was find a good chair. I didn’t want to use one of our hard-wood dining room chairs because that just wouldn’t do for 8-hour long jaunts at my desk. So, I pulled out an old favorite from my step-daughter’s room — the EWIN FLASH XL SERIES ERGONOMIC GAMING CHAIR.
We originally wrote the review on this chair back in 2018. I was impressed with it then and am even more excited about it now because it’s still holding up! After two years of solid use, the cushion and main mechanisms are doing well and even the wheels were still in good shape. I did, however, find that there was a crack in the metal 5-star base frame. I sat in the chair for a couple of days with the crack in it and thought it felt a little off. When I examined the chair thoroughly, I found the crack. I looked up the warranty information and found that the base has a two-year warranty on it. So, I sent an email to their claims department and after I sent them pictures of the damage, they sent the replacement part right out.
Now, if you’ve ever had to put together one of these gaming chairs, you know that the gas lift ends up being permanently attached to the base. There are videos online of people who use mallets and random techniques to force that section back through a base, but no matter what I tried, I couldn’t get it to budge. So, I reached back out to EWIN and they sent me a new gas lift and tray (the piece that attaches to the bottom of the seat) with a new updated multi-tilt mechanism that allows users to rock the chair forth and back more easily. so that I could just remove the entire base section from the rest of the chair and replace it with all-new pieces. They also sent along new hardware pieces so that I could reassemble the chair with no worries.
The EWIN FLASH XL SERIES ERGONOMIC GAMING CHAIR is still a remarkable chair and I can still recommend it. I’ve been using it again for the past month for 8+ hours a day and I don’t feel tired or sore after a day of work thanks to its support. But more than that, I recommend EWIN Racing as a company because they took care of the problem quickly and didn’t give me any runaround about using the warranty period.
SUMMARY Be comfortable sitting for hours while you work or play games in the EWIN Flash XL Gaming Chair.
