E-WIN Calling Series Ergonomic Gaming Office Chair with Pillows Review

By Evan Rowe (@ev_rowe)

E-WIN Calling Series Gaming Chair

Picking out a chair for your desk setup is no small challenge, and with the playing field getting wider and wider each year, making a decision about the right choice for where you’re going to be sitting for long stretches of time carries a lot of weight. A cursory web search for “best chair” recommendations or reviews will net you a lot of different suggestions from a variety of perspectives, and parsing that into something meaningful for you personally is tricky. The one thing most of the reviews can agree on is that a good chair is well worth the money spent in terms of the comfort and benefits on offer.

Gaming chairs in particular are becoming more readily available as more companies throw their hats in the ring, which is great in terms of selection, but again difficult in terms of decision making. The gaming chair is an immediately recognizable piece of gear now; the highly stylized racing seat design with flashy colors and an imposing presence sends a distinct, clear message: “I am gamer, watch me soar.” I’ll admit, I have long been a skeptic of the form factor, and have wondered if they’re really all they claim to be. Could something that is designed to look so flashy and ostentatious actually deliver a meaningful change to your seating experience? As it turns out, the answer is an emphatic yes.

The E-WIN Racing Calling Series gaming chair is a great piece of kit. I’ve been using it for three weeks now, and I’ve been incredibly happy with it on multiple levels. I noticed relatively immediate results in my comfort level after just a single day of use, as compared to my previous office chair. The old chair was also designed for comfort and a high degree of adjustability, but in reality often left my lower back and butt feeling sore at the end of a work day. The E-WIN chair, by contrast, not only eliminates soreness from sitting all day, but continues to provide solid comfort and support for my body during extended gaming sessions later in the evening after a long day at work.

The difference is immediately apparent. The seat is well-cushioned and provides plenty of firm support while still being comfortable to rest on for long periods of time, and the lumbar and neck pillows help to enforce proper posture when seated. If you’re not used to a chair with strong lumbar support, it can take some getting used to at first, and admittedly some practice is required to get used to settling into an upright position, but the E-WIN Calling Series does an excellent job of supporting you while seated, so that over time a naturally improved posture becomes easy to maintain this PC gaming chair.

The assembly process is relatively easy, and comes with clear instructions for each step, and even has a set of grippy white gloves for you to wear while you put it together to keep all of the parts clean. Putting the chair together took less than ten minutes, and E-WIN has done a good job of figuring out how to keep the amount of work required to put its chairs together to a minimum. The finished product feels well-built and sturdy, with no wobbles or loose-feeling connections on any of the parts. By all accounts, this chair seems built to last for years.

I was also pleased that E-WIN offers some more understated design options for their chairs alongside the extremely flashy color options they have on display. I opted for a solid black chair, and I’ve found this to be a great choice as it really lets the details in the fabric and texture choices shine. The materials and patterns get to function as subtle accents to the overall form of the chair, giving it personality and detail that create an overall sense of refinement and luxury in the piece.

The E-WIN Calling Series chair features a great deal of adjustment ability. The back features a reclining range of 85 to 155 degrees (for when you really need to activate “nap mode”), the seat raises and lowers with a gas lift cylinder, and the chair arms are easy to reposition in a variety of ways to suit your needs; they can raise and lower to match your arms and desk, they can slide forward and backward to match your arms’ natural resting position, and they can pivot in multiple angles. It’s relatively easy to dial the chair into exactly how you need to use it. The one adjustment it lacks compared to my old chair is the ability to adjust the overall depth of the seat, but the need for such an adjustment is largely moot as this chair is both meant for somebody of my size and weight, and being able to make such a change would be detrimental to the overall ergonomics of the design.

Overall, I’m really impressed with the E-WIN Calling Series chair. It sports a great deal of comfort, plenty of customization, a variety of finishes to suit nearly every taste, and great build quality that assures the chair will be around to support me for work and gaming alike for years to come. These chairs are very well made, and in an increasingly crowded market, it’s good to know that E-WIN is a reliable option for anybody in the market for something new. It’s made a marked difference in my overall comfort at my desk, and it’s an excellent addition to any setup. At the risk of sounding incredibly corny, you really can’t lose with E-WIN.

E-WIN 2.0 Edition RGB Gaming Desk Review

E-WIN 2.0 Edition RGB Gaming Desk: Introduction

What goes well with a nice gaming chair? A gaming desk of course! And not just any gaming desk – E-WIN now has the 2.0 Edition RGB Gaming Desk that we will look at today! Long before there were any gaming chairs or gaming desks, you just used an old creaky office chair and whatever put-together computer desk that was on sale 12 years ago at the local Office Max or box store. You know, the chair with splits in the seat. The one that would go down but not come back up without bouncing like a pogo stick.  Yeah, that one. While not very flashy or exciting, that office chair and desk pretty much got the job done. Barely. Well, all that has changed with a variety of excitingly purpose-built gaming furniture that is pouring into the market today.  This RGB gaming desk allows for comfort and functionality so you can focus on one thing – GAMING!

E-WIN 2.0 Edition RGB Gaming Desk: Assembly

As with all of the gaming chairs and desks I have seen so far, there is some degree of assembly involved. And I can add that with the units I have reviewed, they have all come with the basic tools necessary for the assembly. This saves you the time to go find all the right tools. Of course, one person can do the assembly, but a little help from a second person certainly makes the job easier. The components for this desk are precisely.

packed with styrofoam blocks and soft foam padding to minimize any damage in shipping. The instructions are not bad, especially if you actually follow them so make sure you are familiar with all of the pieces and assembly steps first. It might be tempting to tear into it, but really – go over the instructions before you begin.

The frame starts with the side legs and goes together with two welded cross bars which then connect the side legs. I always try to keep the fasteners a little loose until everything is roughly in position, and then I will snug them up. When the fasteners are all tightened, the frame becomes rigid and very sturdy. After the frame is assembled, it is time to install the desktop. Be careful not to scratch the surface of your new top! Again – it is a good idea to have a helper for the top installation. Connect the RGB cables for the lighting in the legs. Set the top on the frame and get the fasteners started. Get everything lined up and then tighten the fasteners. Connect the RGB cables for the desktop to the cables from the frame.

 

 

The front banner looks nice with the fully embroidered logo and text although if your desk goes up against a wall, you won’t be able to see it. Next, it is time to figure out which side to mount the included cup holder on (there are mounting provisions for both left and right under the top), and then it is time to power up the RGB lighting! The lighting uses a standard USB plug to connect to a power source which can be an external 5-volt adapter or you can plug right into a USB port on your computer. You will want to power it up for a test before you lock everything down since you will ultimately be tucking much of the wiring away. If you wait to test the

lighting, it can be a pain to have to pull stuff back apart for access to the wiring connections. The wiring is covered in the instructions. Pay attention to the RGB connections for the desktop. They are located in two pockets under the top that is taped over. Easy to miss, but necessary to connect for the lighting along the sides of the top.

The entire desktop surface is laminated with a cool faux carbon fiber texture. I was impressed with the flawless consistency of the way the laminate was applied. No bubbles or waves. This surface is designed to work well with the optics of your gaming mouse so you can run sans mouse pad if you like. Spill your drink?  No problem – just wipe it up and keep on gaming!

And now it is time to fire up the RGB lighting. Some might argue that lighting on a desk is just too over the top.  There is RGB lighting on practically every computer component you can buy. I am not sure – I mean I do actually like it. And as with any new gadget, after the novelty wears off – yeah, I guess I don’t turn it on as much.  But I still like it.  The controls are built into the right side of the desktop for easy access. There are many color effect modes and you can also control the speed – or turn the lighting completely off if you like. The lighting is confined to the sides of the desktop and down the side of each leg. Take some time to cycle through all the lighting modes to find the ones you like best. Also, there are leveling feet at each corner to help with uneven floors.

For my use, I had to remove the lower bar for the front banner to get my computer case to fit under the desk.  Not a huge deal, but if you want to put your case on the floor and want to keep it under the gaming desk, then there are some case dimension limits and I go over this in the video review.

 

This is a great gaming desk! Check out the video review to see the desk assembly and then the real treat is the RGB effects in action! Plus, if you use code OCC on the E-Win site, you’ll save 20% off your order!

E-Win Champion Series Gaming Chair – Reasonable Pricing for Gaming Comfort [Review]

As a PC gamer, there are a few essentials that you should have aside from the PC itself to really consider yourself equipped for hours and hours of gaming.

One of the main things and oddly overlooked things when it comes to gaming accessories is a good gaming chair. Why is a gaming chair overlooked? In my personal experience and what I hear from my friends is, It’s mostly in the expense. Gaming chairs are expensive and I pride myself on not reviewing things where the cost outweighs the benefit. E-Win has a gaming chair that we felt gives you really good benefit for the money.

E-Win and the GSG gang got together and we asked if we could review one of the more affordable yet solid gaming chairs. E-win graciously accepted sending us one of their Champion Series Ergonomic gaming chairs.

After awhile we got a huge box and in it was everything we were excited about and for me my first real gaming chair.

SETUP, FIT & FEEL

When I opened the box, I was a little overwhelmed, mostly because I had not put together a gaming chair before but fortunately for me, in this business of tech you kinda have to be handy by default. First thing I noticed right away is how big the chair was going to be. I also noticed that it was going to be comfortable upon first glance.

The setup overall was very easy once I figured out the weird layout of the instruction sheet. Not too many parts to deal with. There are 3 leading components which are the main chair with armrests and lumbar support, the hydraulic base and the wheels.

Since I had never built a gaming chair before this took me longer than normal at about 40-45 minutes, but had this been something I was accustomed to doing I would have surely cut that time in half. Setup of this chair was quite easy. I even put a little video together detailing the ease at which I was able to put together this chair. It’s timelapsed so you won’t have to go thru 30 minutes of chair building boredom but nonetheless everything was smooth and I was gaming in this chair right away. Just click the link below if you wanna check it out on the GSG YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP6p_pR0xLs&feature=emb_logo

E-Win Champion Series Gaming Chair Unboxing

The E-Win Champion Series chair as I said prior is huge. You have a great deal of real estate to play with. The Champion Series chairs come with a nice soft leather with diamond stitching in the back and seat portion of the chair and just by looking at it you can see just how premium it is. Once you sit in it, you’ll experience the premium comfort as well. With the Champion Series chairs you also get two pillows, one for your head and neck support and the other for your middle or lower back depending on where it suits you best. The chair pillows are easily adjustable and offer really nice comfort especially for those long hours of hardcore gaming. I myself struggle with lower back pain so having these pillows most important the lower pillow is a godsend.

The seat portion of the chair does a good job of holding you in without being constrictive. The armrests are somewhat comfortable considering that they have no cushioning but I won’t kill E-Win for this. My comfy desk chair at my job doesn’t have any armrest cushioning either and I sit there for 8 hours a day and most times I don’t really notice. It’s much of the same here.

The wheels and base on the chair are really well made while offering smooth maneuverability and good height adjustment for the tall people of the world. So if you’re tall, this chair drops really low and softly so you aren’t left with a chair that’s nice only if you’re under 6 ft.

If you really want to relax, this chair has really good adjustment points. If you want you can sit straight up at an 85 degree angle or go as far back as 155 degrees if relaxation while gaming is more your style. It all speaks to the level of comfort that this chair provides when you own one.

SPECS

The E-Win Champion Series Gaming chair exudes quality and you can take a look at the specifications of the chair itself just to see how much went into the construction of this gaming chair.

FINAL THOUGHTS

The E-Win Champion Series gaming chair is a great addition to not only your office setup but for the gaming setup you may have. It offers so much. You get good design, comfort, great build, and a chair that you play games in for hours and never get tired. Bet yet maybe you might like this chair because it is so relaxing. At just $300 it’s affordable comparable to other gaming chairs out there that can easily exceed $500 or more so you also get a great deal with this chair. If you’re looking to get one of these badass chairs you can grab one on their website HERE and pick a color and game in style. They are also available on Amazon as well.

Ewinracing Champion Series [Review]

By: Mithrandiel

Note: I was provided a Champion Series chair from Ewinracing in exchange for my fair and honest review.

I, like so many others, find myself working from home now on a somewhat regular basis. My wife has now completely moved to a work from home situation as well. As more and more folks find themselves working from home, there has been a dramatic increase in the need for a proper workspace: a good desk, a nice webcam, a great headset…and of course, a comfortable chair.

Office chairs have largely been seen in a league of their own outside of gaming chairs, as if they serve different purposes – but in reality, many professionals are flocking to companies like Ewinracing for a sturdy, comfortable office chair at affordable prices.

We knew it was time for a new chair when our old chair quietly whispered “Kill me…” as I plopped down into it for the 10,000th time. (Don’t worry, I’ve called in an old priest and a young priest.) It was a simple, black office chair with cheap plastic covering that was an upgrade from the stiff desk chair I had before, but it was time for yet another upgrade. A serious one.

Having reviewed Ewinracing’s products before, I decided to browse the catalog and see if there was anything new that could fit in well with our more neutral office setup. Neon green and red chairs didn’t exactly work well with the overall aesthetic.

Thankfully, I found a nice neutral gray ewin gaming chair:

Once the chair arrived, which took about a week, it was time to dive in and put the thing together!


Come to papa!

As I began to navigate the directions, it was a bit odd that it didn’t seem specific to the model I purchased. There were some instructions that seemed more generalized, or for other series like their Hero and Knight lines.

The base is very sturdy, as is the hydraulic component. Always good to have a strong foundation – pretty sure I’ve heard words of wisdom along those lines many times in my life.

The weighty pieces did make the solo job a bit challenging at times – would definitely go a bit more swimmingly with two people. Took me just about 90 minutes to make sure I had it put together the right way. Those who are more skilled in the art of putting together furniture could likely get it done in an hour.

The Champion series chair is complemented by two pillows – one that rests at the base of the chair, and the other to support your head. Now, I’m just under 6 feet tall, and the pillow hits right where it should. My wife, who’s about 5’6″, says that it doesn’t work as comfortably for her. It’s still fine, but not ideal. Ewinracing does offer different sizes in some of their other lines, but this championship series is a one-size fits all deal…so it won’t fit your size if you’re a bit shorter – especially if you raise the chair to max height.

That being said, the material is extremely comfortable. While most of the other ewin gaming chairs have a sort of leather-like material, the fabric in this model is much more breathable and firm – offering great comfort, breathability (crucial in these summer months!) and of course, reminding you to sit up straight!

While the quality of the materials is solid at the base and through the seat, the armrests, while offering good adjustability, feel a bit cheap comparatively. It’s not a deal-breaker by any means, but just a bit surprising considering the quality of the rest of the chair.

Overall, I’m very happy with my new ewin gaming chair – It’s got a professional look to it, and is very comfortable.

The chair usually retails for $299, but if you use our code, “thegeeklygrind”, you can save an additional 30% off! Head over to the ewinracing site to check out your options, and add a great new chair to your home office setup!RATE1

E-WIN 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk Review: Gaming in Style!

E-WIN 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk Review: Gaming in Style!

E-WIN 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk

We are excited to announce a new partnership with EwinRacing who produces famous gaming chairs, office chairs, and home computer chairs.  Another line of products they offer is their gaming desks, including this E-Win 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk.

E-WIN 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk

With all the time spent at home these days, why not spend it gaming in style?

EwinRacing is all about gaming with their really cool chairs, which we will be reviewing very soon, and these gaming desks.  This particular model brings everything you could think of into an amazing, sleek-looking product.

The box this product came in is pretty impressive in size and brings excitement about what is inside. This is what you see when you open it up.

It might be a little intimidating when you first open the box but once you unload it, you realize there are not a lot of parts which is encouraging to anyone who knows about assembling office products.  It can be a tedious process!

Specifications:

The desk itself is not a huge desk but it has sufficient space for anything you would need for gaming. The gaming surface is up to 48in.

Assembly/Setup:

Speaking of assembly, the directions are just a few pages long and the small hardware required for assembly has tools included.  Technically, you could assemble this without ever opening your toolbox!

One of the challenges we had with assembling the desk was the clarity of the instructions.  There were no words, only pictures. This caused us to put the logo banner on the incorrect way the first time.

There is a specific direction the bars that connect the two legs together should be to make sure the wires line up. And, speaking of wires, the instructions on wiring could have been a little clearer. It was somewhat of a guessing game but we managed to figure it out pretty quickly.

We eventually searched and found an assembly video for the desk on YouTube and referenced it when needed.

Finished Product:

After assembling the desk, we were excited with the finished product!

E-WIN 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk

The quality and sturdiness of this desk are amazing! The gaming surface has a carbon fiber texture. It has the feel of a quality product that will last for a while!

Features:

The desk has some really cool features! First, let’s talk about lighting.  There is multi-color and single color lighting that goes up the side of both legs and on the side of the table.

E-WIN 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk

You can have moving lights or solid lights.  The light settings are controlled by the buttons on the front right corner of the desktop.

Another great feature is the cupholder.  You can install it on either side of the desk to fit your needs.

You can manage the cables using the two different cut-out ports on each side of the back of the desk.

When it comes to a need for storage, this desk does not offer much.  If you keep files or need extra space to spread your paperwork out, this is not really going to be the best option for you.

The desk comes with a 3-year limited warranty.

Pricing:

You can purchase the E-WIN 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk on their website for $399.00.  If you use our discount code, TNS you will receive a 20% discount! You should also check out their newest model that includes a smart wireless charger and USB port.

Verdict:

We are excited about this gaming desk! Between the really cool lighting, cupholder, and cable management ability as well as the overall quality of the desk, you really can’t go wrong. If gaming is your priority and you do not need it for storage this is a great choice.

Grab your own gaming desk today using our code TNS to save 20% off your order!

E-WIN Champion Gaming Chair: Ergonomic Comfort Wins

As more of us work from home, we are spending more time in our office chairs. Whether it is work or play, our backs are most likely feeling the number of hours we are hunched over our screens.

Enter ergonomic chairs many of which provide comfort for long hours of sitting. However, some of these can be a major investment. That’s when I discovered that I could get a gaming chair that could double as an office chair and for those gaming breaks that are essential to greater productivity throughout the day.

The first PC gaming chair I tried was the E-WIN champion gaming chair. Priced at just under $300, it offered an appealing price compared to those fancy ergonomic chairs plus it looked cool from the pictures. Here’s my review.

About E-WIN Champion Gaming Chairs

The E-WIN Champing Gaming Chairs are ergonomic gaming chairs that come with a lumbar pillow. You can choose from color combinations that include black and white, black and red, black and day-glow green, black and turquoise, and black and pink.

Features include stain-resistant 2.0 PU leather, which you can clean with a cloth yet looks and feels like real leather. The chairs also contain cold-cure foam, which is the company’s proprietary high-density foam, which feels very similar to memory foam that you might find on a mattress. The elasticity of the foam is designed to prolong the chair’s life and comfort level.

Pros and Cons

If you have read any of my product reviews then you know that, while I love gadgets, I don’t love assembling things. Some of the other ergonomic chairs I had considered looked like you needed an engineering degree to put them together. Not this one.

All I needed was an Allen key and about 15 minutes. The pieces were organized well in the box and mostly pre-assembled. Everything was labeled so I felt confident about what I was doing.

Once assembled, I found many other things to like about the gaming chair. It is designed and made with quality materials that don’t feel in the least bit cheap. The stitching and leather-like finish shows that the gaming chair is made to last. It feels like a much more expensive ergonomic chair.

The comfort level can be adjusted to fit the person sitting in the chair. It has a hydraulic height-adjustment lever like most chairs. But, it also has a reclining lever, which lets you put the chair almost to a horizontal position.

I love the armrest that adjust as well, including rotating, sliding to the left or the right, raising up and down, and pushing them forward or backward. You can even take the armrests off the chair.

In terms of cons, there is only one minor point. The lumbar and neck pillows are a bit awkward in terms of placement and feel. However, it’s not enough to make the whole chair uncomfortable.

In the Box

The box contains the chair components, including pillows. It also has a pair of gloves and instruction manual. The chair comes with a 10-year limited warranty.

Where to Buy

The E-WIN gaming chairs are available on the E-Win website as well as through Amazon. E-Win offers free shipping and returns. Use code TECHREPORT for 20% off.

Final Thoughts

Overall, this ergonomic gaming chair is a great buy. It’s comfortable, sturdy, and easy to assemble. Everything is adjustable for even greater comfort. The quality of the materials also makes the price an even better value.

EWin Champion Gaming Chair Review: A Premium Gaming Chair at a Competitive Price

The EWin Racing Champion Series Gaming Chair
EWin

Gaming chairs tend to be three things: expensive, ugly, and a little bit uncomfortable. But somehow, someway, EWin has managed to break away from the competition with its affordable, comfortable Champion gaming chair.

Here’s What We Like

  • Comfortable and Breathable Materials
  • Sturdy Aluminum Base and Steel-Framed Body
  • Easy to Assemble
  • Everything is Adjustable, Including the Arm Rests
  • Comes with Fancy Gloves
  • Affordable

And What We Don’t

  • Awkward Pillows
  • Firm Seat Cushion

In the past, I’ve spent an embarrassing amount of energy complaining about how gaming chairs don’t work well as office chairs. To prove my point (to myself, I guess), I decided to use the EWin Champion as a full-time office and gaming chair. At this point, I’ve probably spent over 100 hours with my butt planted in the Champion, and it’s now my dedicated office chair. Even the cat likes it. Go figure.

So, what sets the Champion apart from the rest? Is it the materials? The anime-esque design? The memory foam innards? Well, my love for the Champion began as soon as I opened the box.

The Easiest Assembly Imaginable

Let’s start with a bit of honesty. I love to assemble new toys and furniture, to the point that it’s a bit of a problem. Friends and loved ones shy away when I have a tool in my hand; they’ve learned not to interrupt the manic episode that takes place when my eyes lock on a hunk of loose materials and disorganized screws.

But in the last month, that manic obsession has taken a hit. See, I’ve just moved to a new building, and the assembly-gland in my brain is exhausted from disassembling and reassembling so much stupidly designed furniture. When the EWin Champion chair arrived at my doorstep, I honestly dreaded the thought of dealing with it. I considered swearing off furniture for good, but then will power to slice open the box.

I’m still impressed by how well the box was organized, and by the short 15 or 20 minutes that I spent assembling the EWin Champion chair with an included Allen key.

My messy desk featuring the EWin Champion
Andrew Heinzman

In the box, the large parts of the chair (the seat and backrest) come mostly pre-assembled, and the smaller pieces are clearly labeled and partitioned into baggies and boxes. At first, I was confused by the small number of bolts and screws that are included in the box, but I quickly realized that most of the screws are pre-installed in the chair’s body, so you don’t have to go looking for them.

Naturally, the chair comes with an instruction manual. I’m happy to say that this manual was written by a creature with a pulse. It’s easy to follow, it’s only one page long, and it doesn’t contain any typos.

The EWin Champion chair also comes with a nifty pair of gloves. This seems a little odd (I assumed that they fell in during the packing process), but they’re included with every EWin gaming chair. Are these gloves for gaming? Are you supposed to wear them while assembling the chair? I have no idea, but I appreciate their existence, I guess.

Surprising Build Quality

As a lazy work-from-home sort and a dedicated PC gamer, I’ve spent a lot of time in my new EWin Champion chair. In that time, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by its build quality.

A chair’s construction is similar to the human body. All chairs have a dense boney frame, soft meaty innards, and a protective outer shell (I don’t feel comfortable saying that a chair has skin). As a human being, you probably don’t want to be made up of a bunch of cheap parts. Well, chairs don’t want to be made of cheap parts either, which is why the EWin Champion is built with a steel frame, a dense memory foam body, and a surprisingly rich and tightly-stitched polyurethane upholstery with a leather finish.

With these components, the EWin Champion chair is a durable, heavy beast. It’s stain-resistant, it feels very secure, and despite my best efforts, I haven’t managed to fall back while sitting in it.

As long as my cats continue to love and respect my belongings, this chair should last for a long time. And believe me, I hope that it lasts for a long time, because as it turns out, well-built chairs are super comfortable.

Comfort and Adjustable

EWin isn’t lying when it says the Champion is made from high-density memory foam. This is a firm chair. And while I hate to sink into a chair, especially while I’m at a computer, I think that the Champion could use a little more cushion. Usually, I don’t notice the firmness, but sometimes I have to set a small blanket on the Champion’s seat to keep things comfy.

Thankfully, the Champion’s innards are soft. Let me reiterate something; the EWin Champion’s PU leather upholstery is luxurious. It’s soft, like an expensive coat. And while synthetic leathers are notorious for trapping heat, I haven’t caught myself sweating in the EWin Champion chair. The Champion is surprisingly breathable.

But comfort doesn’t depend entirely on materials; it also depends on adjustability. And every part of the Champion is adjustable.

The EWin Chair with its armrests in wonky positions.
Andrew Heinzman

Like most desk chairs, the Champion has a hydraulic height-adjustment lever. I’m a little over six feet tall, and my feet can barely touch the ground at the Champion’s highest position. The Champion also has a reclining lever, and it can recline to an almost entirely horizontal position, which is extremely comfortable (albeit not wholly practical).

Surprisingly, the Champion’s armrests are also fully adjustable. EWin calls them “4D armrests,” because they can rotate, they can slide to the left or the right, they can be raised up and down, and you can push them forward or backward. If you don’t like armrests, you can remove them altogether. I like to keep the armrests at their lowest setting. I spend most of my computer time typing, and the armrests are great for supporting my elbows and keeping my wrists straight.

The only thing about this PC gaming chair that makes me uncomfortable is the lumbar pillow. It’s a little too bulky and a little too low for my tastes. And while you can technically adjust the pillow’s height by raising it along its straps, the straps can’t be tightened, so the pillow doesn’t stay where you set it.

As for the neck pillow, I don’t know how I feel about it, because I can’t reach it without awkwardly forcing my back into the chair. Plus, its straps can’t be tightened, so I can’t adjust it to suit my tastes. Thankfully, both pillows can be removed from the chair, and I usually use a little throw pillow in place of the lumbar pillow.

The “Huggy” Factor

The Champion looming like a monster hungry for a hug.
Andrew Heinzman

Now, I have a particular (and possibly unjustified) complaint about most racing-styled gaming chairs. They’re a little too “huggy.” Like a booster seat, racing-styled chairs tend to be folded inward, and you can feel it on your back and your butt. In my experience, lumbar and back pillows tend to add to this discomfort.

The EWin Champion chair is unique, as it’s just the right amount of “huggy.” It’s comfortable, but it still keeps me from rolling into a crooked or un-ergonomic position. That being said, I think the lumbar pillow’s bulkiness and lack of adjustability subtract from the posture-supporting “huggy” factor by pushing my lower back forward. Maybe it’s just my body type, but again, I think that a smaller lumbar pillow would make this chair even better than it already is.

A Cool, Albeit Niche Design

In the past few years, I’ve managed to go through an embarrassing number of chairs. Of those chairs, the EWin Champion is the only one that looks like it’s from an anime.

Now, is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. I feel like I’m controlling a mecha while writing product reviews or playing video games, and that’s comforting. It gives me an odd sense of power. But would I suggest this chair to a friend based on its design? I guess it depends on the friend.

Don’t get me wrong; I think that EWin’s struck the right balance between style and usability. And I understand the Champion needs to stand out from the competition because gamers tend to buy the products that are used by their favorite Twitch streamers or YouTubers. It’s just that the design is a little niche.

That being said, I think that the Champion looks better than most gaming chairs, and appreciate that the chair’s embroidered EWin logo isn’t too flashy.

Overall, this is a great chair. It’s comfortable for work and play, and it’s built to last. At just under $300, the Champion is the best in its league. I just hope that I can find a use for those gloves.

In It to E-Win it! A Single-Take Review of E-Win’s Latest Gaming Chair

IMG_0182.jpeg

A few weeks ago the great folks over at E-Win Racing reached out to us to see if we would be interested in checking out their super fancy gaming chairs. And of course our answer was, “HECK YES!” Soon a very large box was dropped off at my door. That box contained a Champion Series Ergonomic chair, and what you’re about to read is a look at my experience assembling it, and parking my keister in it for the past couple weeks!

Assembly


IMG_0172.jpeg

I’m including extensive photos in a slide show that will help you get an idea of how the chair shows up, the size of the box, and the steps it takes to assemble the chair. From the time I cut the box open, until I sat down in the chair was 36 minutes (and a few seconds). That includes the time I took to stop and take pictures, if I hadn’t the whole process would easily have been under 30 minutes, which is pretty fantastic. By my count there are a total of 8 bolts, and 2 screws that need to be manipulated in order to assemble the chair (PLUS they included extra parts in case you lose something). The seat back and the seat take four bolts that line up fairly easily, and then there are 2 plastic trim pieces that cover up where those bolts connect the two pieces, and the 2 screws hold those trim pieces in place. The remaining four bolts were already screwed into the bottom of the seat and are taken out and then screwed back in to attach the hydraulic assembly. Then it’s a matter of pushing in the five wheels into the steel base, and setting the whole thing down into place.

Features

This thing has all the bells and whistles! Just about every point of articulation you could want is here! The armrests articulate up/down, forward/backward, twist inward/outward, and slide laterally! If you can’t find a comfortable arrangement for them, you haven’t tried! The seat back also reclines to nearly fully reclined (range of motion is 85-155 degrees), and of course the entire seat tilts back as well (which is lockable). The Championship Series chair also comes with 2 pillows: a lumbar support pillow, and a neck support pillow.

The Verdict!

I’m going to take a few different viewpoints and share some thoughts, first as a tabletop gamer, and pc/console gamer, and lastly as an office/desk chair.

Tabletop Gaming—Personally, I don’t think tabletop gaming gives enough thought to the chairs we sit on. We’re perfectly fine plopping down at the table for a 2-3 hour D&D session, or a marathon game of Twilight Imperium, while sitting on a hard, wooden dining room chair, or slightly padded folding chair, while our legs go numb. There are a few manufacturers out there who are making strides, but we have a long way to go. That being said, this chair is great. I have two different tables I game at here at the homestead, and using a top-notch chair to sit at them makes a big difference. Being able to sit at an appropriate height, and keep the armrests unobtrusively at the ready is a whole new level of tabletop gaming. My back isn’t as achy from leaning over the table and being able to sit higher really helps with sight lines on the table. I’m a bit taller than average (6’3”) so the high back on the Championship Series adds support and comfort as well!


IMG_0168.jpeg

PC/Console Gaming—This is where the articulation of the armrests really comes into play. Being able to swivel, slide, and adjust them to my body shape, arm length, etc. really makes for a comfortable gaming experience. It’s like the chair isn’t there; my arms and hands don’t feel fatigue, and I feel like I play a bit more consistently because my hand position is more consistent and supported, which relaxes my hands, which cuts down on fatigue. This is obviously what this chair is primarily designed for, and it absolutely shines!

Office/Desk Chair—If you go to E-Win’s website, the listing for this chair includes the description “office chair,” so it is certainly considered a valid replacement for your current office chair. And let’s be honest, with the current lockdown situation there are a lot of us who are either a. not working, or b. working from home, and (like me) realizing how uncomfortable your home office chair actually is. I know I’ve spent more time in my office/studio space these past 3 months! Again this is where the Championship series really shows off. Typing with armrests that give support is a real game-changer and being able to adjust the recline angle of the chair has (and this is not hyperbole) changed my life. My last three office chairs were only able to recline as a whole unit, and it was impossible to find a comfortable angle to sit and work in for any length of time. This is a strong contender to replace your current office chair, believe me!


IMG_0179.jpeg

One last thing I’d like to talk about before giving my final verdict is the quality and aesthetics of the chair. E-Win touts a brand new PU Leather, and cold cured foam construction. It. Is. Sharp! It looks great, and the stitching, the construction, and all the touches are there—the chair just feels great! The hubless casters are quiet, and smooth (I’m mostly on carpet and I can move fairly well, especially compared to my former office chairs), and they look totally rad! I have noticed that it does overall sit a bit higher than I’m used to sitting in an office chair, but I’ve adjusted to it in the office and it works just fine. The locking mechanism is also pretty sweet. Not only will it lock so you stay upright, but you can lock the tilt mechanism at any point, that’s right, I can kick back, lock it into place and not have to fight to keep it at a comfortable angle, or tip forward unexpectedly. Seriously, this chair has it all!


IMG_0183.jpeg

Final Verdict

The E-Win Championship Series chair is terrific—let’s just get that out of the way. It is not a super cushy/overstuffed chair that will whisk you away on clouds. It’s a high-performance chair. When I sit down in it I know I’m about to get stuff done. Whether I’m going to whoop my kids at Madden, delve into a dungeon on the tabletop, or produce a new episode of Cryptic Podcast, things are happening when I hop in this seat! If you’re looking to make a seating upgrade, I highly recommend checking out E-Win and their Championship Series chairs.

E-Win Racing Hero gaming chair review: All-day support

The E-Win Racing hero gaming and office chair provides all the support your back and behind will ever need. Whether you spend eight hours a day gaming or eight hours a day working, you need a good place to sit. Despite several minor flaws, the E-Win is it.

Whether you spend your days glued to Call of Duty or mired in conference calls, one thing is critical: you have to take care of your back. It’s proven that sitting all day is detrimental to our health. If you have no choice, the very least you can do is ensure your chair doesn’t throw your back out of whack. The E-Win Racing Hero gaming and office chair provides the support you need and the luxury you desire. Is it the right chair for you?

Find out in Android Authority‘s E-Win Hero review.

About this E-Win Hero review: I spent a week evaluating the E-Win Racing Hero gaming and office chair. I used it during gameplay and also as my primary office chair. E-Win Racing provided the chair to Android Authority for review.

E-Win Hero review: Who is this chair for?

If you spend a lot of time sitting, no matter the reason, a good chair is vital. I’ve been saddled with some pretty miserable office chairs over the course of my career. Those that don’t properly support your back lead to pain, poor posture, and general misery. One of the first things I did when I started working from home was to invest in a solid chair. It makes a world of difference, trust me.

Want to prevent aches and pains? Want to improve your overall health, even if only a little bit? The E-Win Hero gaming chair can help.

Do you have to assemble the chair?

Yep, and it ain’t fun. The chair arrives in a large, heavy box (27.3kg). You’ll need a semi open space to manage the box and all the contents therein.

E-Win provided all the tools necessary for the job (basically just an allen wrench), but the directions included in the box were for a different chair. Granted, most of the basic steps were the same, but a few definitely were not. Due to the weight of the chair components, positioning them and holding them in place properly when aligning screws was a chore. I recommend you ask a friend to help, even if only with a couple of steps.

Beyond these issues, it’s a rather straightforward process to put the pieces together. It took about 20 minutes. A pair of gloves is included in the package to protect your hands when using the allen wrench. Put them on.

What is the E-Win Hero made of?

It’s made of good stuff. First, the chair has a steel frame in the chair bottom and back. This is what contributes the most to the weight. The metal frame is then covered in high-density, cold-cure memory foam. E-Win says its foam is engineered to be twice as heavy as regular foam. It’s elastic, yet durable. The foam is then covered in stain-resistant leather. E-Win says the leather can be cleaned repeatedly without damage. The leather is also resistant to abrasion and sun/ultraviolet damage.

The chassis under the chair itself is made of metal and plastic. A metal piston provides the suspension, and a frame for the five-pointed wheel array is polished aluminum. The wheels themselves are strong 2-inch casters.

E-Win rates the chair for 400lbs. Everything is covered by a two-year warranty except the frame, which is covered by a 10-year warranty.

What are the E-Win Hero’s features?

It’s a big chair and practically everything is adjustable. The seat measures 20.7-inch wide by 22.4-inch deep, while the back rest measures 36.6-inch tall by 22.4-inch wide. The backrest adjusts from an upright angle of 85 degrees down to a nearly-flat 155 degrees for cat naps. The lever for adjusting the seat angle is made of metal and the mechanism comes across as incredibly strong.

The armrests are 4 inches wide by 11 inches long. They adjust in eight directions: up and down ~3 inches; in and out ~1.5 inches; front to back ~2 inches; and rotate ~2 inches. The padding is plastic and feels durable. No word on how it will hold up to sweat over time, but it didn’t get slick despite some hot and humid days while I tested it.

You can raise and lower the chair by 4 inches. The E-Win Hero also leans back on a sturdy spring. Both of these are controlled by a bar below the seat. This is one aspect of the chair I didn’t like. The plastic bar comes across as a bit flimsy.

Last, there are two pillows, one for lumbar support and one for neck support. These are strapped to the chair via elastic bands.

How does it feel?

I’ve sat in dozens of office chairs over two decades as a journalist. The E-Win Racing Hero is the most comfortable and supportive such chair I’ve ever nestled into. After using it for a week as my main office chair, I can plainly say that my back feels better at the end of each day. My back isn’t as stiff or worn out as it was with my old chair. The support is quite something, but it’s not perfect.

After using it for a week as my office chair, I can plainly say my back feels better.

I’m a tall guy and I have a long torso. The 36-inch back is more than adequate to support me, but the neck pillow is a slight problem. Even at its highest-adjusted position, the pillow sits below my neck. After a couple of days I had to take it off the chair. If you want to nap, you can always keep it nearby.

The strong lumbar support is excellent, though keeping the lumbar pillow in place can also be a challenge. Some might desire more pliability to the pillow, or perhaps the ability to adjust its shape a bit, but it fit me just fine.

I haven’t previously sat in many gaming chairs, but I also used the chair for some time in front of my Xbox. Prior to using the E-Win Hero I always simply sat on my couch during gameplay. I was never truly comfortable gaming this way. The Hero managed to change that. I found I was more willing to spend time blasting my way through games than if I’d been drooped on the couch or hunched over on the floor.

A good chair makes all the difference, and the E-Win Hero is a good chair.

E-Win Hero review: Should you buy it?

No one wants to spend money on a chair. Whether you sit for eight hours a day gaming or eight hours a day working, there’s no question that you need to take care of yourself. You’re worth the investment in a good chair.

My younger self never cared to spend more than about $150 on an office chair. I now know that was a mistake. If you’re going to spend one-third of your day in a single seat, you may as well splurge and make that the best chair you can afford. Your back and neck will thank you.

The E-Win Racing Hero is expensive at $359. If that’s a bit too much, E-Win has a slew of options in the $199 to $299 price range that may suit you just fine.

EWin Knight Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair – Hardware Review

EWinRacing’s latest entry in the racing back gaming chair, is an affordable and extremely comfortable chair in a market saturated with gaming-oriented furniture. Comfortable and as classy as you can get in the gaming world while still being purpose-built, the Knight is a durable chair for the every-person gamer and though the model that I picked out is black with yellow highlights and the four face buttons of a PlayStation controller embroidered on the seat back, is still subtle enough that it doesn’t stick out the way most “gaming” furniture design do; if you’d like to see more on it, head on over to EWin’s website, but in the meantime, here are some of my thoughts on the E-Win Knight Series gaming chair.

First and foremost, huge shout out to the folks over at EWinRacing. When I first received the chair, which shipped in near-record time (only a two-day wait, which is spectacular as that’s in the realm of Amazon Prime shipping) I was a bit skeptical as the instructions that were sent were actually for the EWin Calling Series chair. Fortunately, a quick tweet and I had a PDF of the instruction manual within an hour, though not that one would need it; this chair is not only comfortable, but easy to build on account of it shipping in about 4 pieces. Even though the full color instructions (something I rarely see these days) were incorrect, EWin’s extremely fast response to the plight was reassuring that they stand behind their product, something not many “gaming” or “racing-back” chair manufacturers do (based on personal experience with three separate “gaming” chairs).

Assembly took about 20 minutes and then I was up and running (well, sitting) and like any new piece of furniture it needs a break-in period. Fortunately, with everything going on and there being a Stay At Home order in my State, the Knight was about to be broken in in record time. Over the past three weeks I have spent anywhere from 14 to 18 hours a day in the chair and am thrilled to report that one of my biggest concerns was unfounded. That concern? Durability.

In every sub-$250 gaming-oriented chat that I have owned, even under light usage, has started to break down within mere weeks of ordering; from the cushions simply breaking down to lifts and backrest angles simply breaking, every single one, with the exception of an AmazonBasics “executive” chair (that cost just shy of $200), have been duds. Even the AmazonBasics chair, while still being comfortable, squeaks and groans like no other when my slightly-under-weight 13-year-old daughter sits in it. The EWinRacing Knight series though? I’ve put this chair through its paces and the only issue I have found with it is that it seems to want to always gradually rotate to the left. Annoying at times, but generally not something I can tell until I’ve been at the computer for 8+ hours. Not exactly end of the world and minimal given the fact that the seat cushion, headrest, and lower lumbar support are all in top-notch condition.

Now, I’m not exactly a large guy nor am I a small one, but when the good folks at EWinRacing reached out to me with the opportunity to review the Knight series chair I was a little confused as to why they’d want my height and weight; I’ve bought plenty of articles of furniture (that’s lasted quite some time) without needing to divulge that I’m not only short, but slightly on the husky side, so I was a bit taken aback. The reason, come to find out, is because EWinRacing has specific lines tailored towards all manner of sizes so no matter the height/weight of the person looking into a chair, they will have you covered. This was, to me, a fairly not-so-subtle wake-up call that this is a manufacturer who is so confident in their product (with good reason) and so concerned with the comfort of their customers, that they’ve tailored brands for everyone, even though not everyone is built the same way.

As I was putting the seat together I was a little concerned that it seemed large, and even sitting in it for the first time I felt like I had extra space at my hips that I just wasn’t used to. After a week of using the Knight, I plopped my chonky tail-end in my AmazonBasics chair and felt damn-near claustrophobic. The Knight’s wide seat, flaring armrests, and broader backrest are so damned comfortable that you don’t realize it until you sit in a chair that prescribes to the “One Size Fits All” mantra and oh boy is it noticeable. More noticeable? That the leatherette has yet to stretch around the seams and that all of the cushions are still in pristine shape. I still cannot get over how nice the Knight looks after nearly 300 hours of constant abuse. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think that this chair was magicked into existence by the whimsical furniture gods, slapped with a sub-$250 price tag, and shipped out the door.

So, my final thoughts? In this day-and-age it is about making sure your money is well spent on durable products that are going to last while being faithfully supported by a company that truly values its customers. It is clear, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the folks over at EWinRacing fit the bill and deserve all the praise that one can bestow. They have taken a style of chair that has really taken off these past few years, made it comfortable, durable, and classy, while staying within the bounds of general affordability and in doing so bypasses nearly every pitfall the saturated gaming furniture market has.

What is even better? The awesome folks over at EWinRacing have provided us with a discount code just for you to take a little off the top… and by “little” I’m talking a whopping 20% off your order!

Simply use the code: chalgyr at checkout and watch that price drop!

Summary

So what are you waiting for!? Head on over to https://www.ewinracing.com and check out the Knight series and pick one up! You won’t regret it. Special thanks to EWinRacing as a whole for approaching us with this opportunity to review the Knight; it’s a fantastic chair that I foresee being in my office for many years to come.
