Over the last decade or so we’ve seen a large influx of gaming chairs. I can’t recall which company introduced the concept but in recent years a lot of newcomers entered the market as entrepreneurs realized there’s a big market for gaming chairs.
Computer gaming is a hot growth market and a lot of gamers want to pay premium prices for products that provide a custom touch to their gaming space. A week ago, research firm GfK released a report that revealed desktop gaming PCs, as well as PC gaming accessory sales, are growing at impressive mid-double digit rates.
These days nobody wants a beige box under or on his/her desk, so computer enthusiasts and gamers spend a lot of money on fancy cases and case modding products. Gaming chairs are a product that fits well with this audience, every desktop PC gamer needs a chair so the target market for companies that can convince gamers to spend a bit more on a chair is massive.
The subject of this review is the Champion gaming chair from Ewin Racing. It’s one of the lesser known gaming chair brands but the company behind Ewin Racing is not a newcomer in the chair market. The firm’s website explains the Ewin Racing was founded in 2016 and that the company has a long history as a manufacturer of car seats and OEM office chairs.
The exact EwinRacing gaming chair model I’m testing today is the Champion CP-BC3A, a black chair with some blue highlights. Ewin Racing offers the Champion series in three variants in Europe; CPA, CPB and CPC. All three versions are almost identical, the only difference is the design of the fabric of the seat and the backrest. Besides the three different designs, you can also choose between a couple of color options including black/white, black/red, and black/blue. The company’s US webshop, on the other hand, offers four different seat designs as well as a lot more color combinations.
At the moment of this review, Ewin Racing is selling the chair for 259EUR ($279) but with the coupon code “DVH” you can get an extra 15% off!
As with most office chairs, you need to assemble the product yourself. It’s a pretty easy process and you can probably do it in 10-15 minutes tops. In the past, I would have shot a lot of photos of the unboxing and assembly process but to celebrate the 15th anniversary of DV Hardware we’re introducing video reviews. Check out our clip below, the first part includes the unboxing and the chair’s assembly.

After using the Ewin Racing Champion gaming chair for a couple of weeks I’m very impressed. This product is a nice step up in quality versus traditional office chairs and offers a wide range of seat and armrest adjustments. Its overall build quality is good and the chair offers high-density memory foam that remains quite firm and comfortable. Whether you’re planning to use it for gaming, office work, or watching movies at night, this chair will not disappoint.
