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

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

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.
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.
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
And What We Don’t
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.
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.
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
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.
Note: This is a review post from https://www.reviewgeek.com
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.

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?
Credit: Eric Zeman / Android Authority
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?
Credit: Eric Zeman / Android Authority
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?
Credit: Eric Zeman / Android Authority
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?
Credit: Eric Zeman / Android Authority
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?
Credit: Eric Zeman / Android Authority
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?
Credit: Eric Zeman / Android Authority
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.
Note: This is a review post from https://www.androidauthority.com
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!
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.

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
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!
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.
Like many of you, I am stuck at home, riding out this damned COVID-19 pandemic. To pass the time, I noticed I’ve been spending a lot more time on my rump in the home office, whether it be writing things for Droid Life or extended sessions of Call of Duty: Warzone.
Given that I’ve been sitting more, I want to make sure I have a comfortable chair, so it was quite serendipitous that EwinRacing, a maker of PC gaming chairs, emailed me to see if I would be interested in checking out one of their chairs for review. I accepted because who doesn’t want to be comfortable. The chair arrived a few days later. I’ve now had it set up in my office for a few days and am ready to share a few thoughts.
I’ve assembled a similar gaming chair before, but thankfully, assembling this EwinRacing gaming chair was nothing like that one. There are only a few pieces to put together, all of which are assembled with the use of one of two hex pins. You can view the entire assembly instruction list here (photo from Monitornerds), but I’d say it took me about 15 minutes from start to finish. Do note the red directional arrows on the instructions, though. I began reading left to right, top to bottom like you’d read a book and was very confused at first. Thankfully my fiancée caught me and corrected me that I need to follow the arrows. Bless her heart.
Once your chair is assembled, with all of its screws tightened, you’re ready to sit and relax.
Can chairs have features? Well of course they can and the Champion Series is no different. This chair features a stain-resistant PU (polyurethane) leather over a high-density foam cushion. According to the product’s listing, the foam is “engineered to be 2x heavier than regular foam per cubit foot, inching it near the realm of memory foam.” Obviously I’ll chat comfort in just a bit.
For adjusting the chair, there is a ridiculous amount of knobs, levers, and all that jazz. For specifics, there’s height adjustment, tilt adjustment, sideways and height adjustment for the armrests, and backrest adjustment. What I wasn’t sure of at first, but am now a major fan of, are the pillows the chair comes with. And since I’m talking about the pillows now, let’s get to the comfort section.
For a full look at “features,” check out the product listing here.
Mmm, new chair smell!
This chair is comfy! The last gaming chair I tried, I hoped it might get softer or more comfy after I broke it in for a week or so, but that didn’t really happen. With the EwinRacing gaming chair, it was comfortable as soon as I sat in it the first time.
It is a lot different from the chair I am coming from, a high backrest IKEA office chair, but once I found out the level of tilt I liked, my body just sort of melts right into it. And this is where the pillows come in. My past chairs don’t have cute little pillows to support my lower back and neck, so the addition of these pillows has been a major bonus. If you don’t want the pillows, simply unclip them.
As someone with terrible sitting posture (I look more like a pretzel than a human when sitting), which has been confirmed by my primary care physician, acupuncturist, massage therapist and chiropractor, I honestly feel much more comfortable and less achey after extended periods of sitting. And with the pandemic and state-wide lockdown in full effect, I foresee a lot more sitting in my future.
I’ve only been using the chair for a few days, so I can’t give you much details in terms of durability, but I have faith that this chair can serve me for some time. The chair feels very durable and heavy, and according to the EwinRacing’s website, the chair can handle plenty of cleaning thanks to its PU leather and hub-less casters. The leather is detailed to “surpass industry performance standards for strength abrasion, hydrolysis, and UV stability,” so that seems good.
For now, it’s holding strong and maybe I’ll post an update to this review in six months or so.
I don’t know how much anyone here spends on chairs, but for me, it’s never been more than $199. Anything higher than that seemed silly, but when I think more about it, if you want something that is high quality and comes with plenty of features, you might have to pay higher prices.
EwinRacing has a large selection of chairs that covers a wide range of prices, but for this Champion Series chair that I received, the price is currently $219. This is 42% off its list price of $379, but on top of that, there are different chairs in this particular series that range in color and size. Thinking objectively, even though I was gifted this chair in exchange for this review, I could easily see myself dropping a couple hundred dollars on this chair.
If you’re stuck at home like us, and you need a new chair for all of your work and/or gaming needs, feel free to check out the Champion Series by following the link below.
The Ewin Racing brand operates in the gaming space, but the majority of its products are racing-style chairs. They are a common site with video creators and streamers, whom the brand specifically targets for its marketing. Although the focus from Ewin Racing has been to put its product in front of as many people as possible, especially those who have a wide-spread reach in the gaming market, that doesn’t mean that an RGB desk like the Ewin RGB Gaming Desk also fits that marketing plan. For starters, a chair is on camera when a stream or video is shot. A desk, on the other hand, is generally something for the user to enjoy. It may or may not have functionality beyond a general gaming desk.
In the case of the Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk, it functions for the sole purpose to please those who are wanting a customizable desk that also serves the purpose of a command station. And honestly, it does both of those things fairly well, albeit with a few sacrifices to functionality.
Some assembly required
When I came home to find the box for the Ewin desk sitting on my porch, I was surprised at its sheer size and weight. Most of that weight comes from the desktop itself, chiming in at 48″ (120 cm) wide and having a depth of 26.8″ (68 cm). This is important if you’re wondering whether it can support a single, dual, or even triple monitor setup. The entire desk, legs and top, weighs a little over 55 lbs (25.3 kg). So, if you’re wondering whether or not it’s sturdy — it is.
For the most part, the Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk has a pretty straightforward assembly, so much so that it only comes with one skimpy page for instructions. This is great and all if you’ve got the know-how to assemble furniture with little direction. Although, I still could have used more direction on the RGB cords and setup. The desktop does house two feed-through ports from below your desk to the top for cable management.
At this point, I’m still unsure if they have more functionality to them, like working with Phillips HUE or any other third-party light system. There are two RGB wires that hang from either side of the desk. They end up connecting to a USB extension that can be plugged into your PC or a power source. This is what powers the RGB panel that runs along the sides of the desktop and the legs, emitting the color-coded light of your choosing.
With the way the wires run on the RGB desk, though, the options to place your tower are limited if you’re powering it via USB into your PC. Even if you are not going to be setting it up this way, you still have to account for ventilation wherever your PC tower is going to sit. As mentioned, there is quite a bit of desk space to house multiple monitors. In this case, I was able to fit my rig and monitor side by side. And on a side note, if you normally have drinks on your desk, the desk comes with a swiveling cupholder that can support mugs with handles. It turned out to be utterly convenient.
I wouldn’t have normally opted for my PC to be sitting beside my monitor sideways. I recently just built into a mid-tower case with a tempered glass side, complete with ASUS Aura Sync motherboard. This was done to put my AMD RGB Wraith Prism cooler, Corsair Vengeance RGB RAM, and Razer Ornata Chroma keyboard to good use (and on display). Admittedly, I did move it around to finally arrive at the setup seen in the picture below, something that still manages to showcase its shine.
Oh, the colors
It seems like the bottom line here is that, if you’re wanting to finalize or complete your RGB setup, the Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk is most likely the last or first thing you’d pick up. For me, I already saw the prettiness that came with the Razer Ornata Chroma keyboard and light effects on my Corsair RAM. I was wanting to obtain an RGB motherboard in order to have customizability with the AMD Wraith Prism cooler. All of these products synced quite nicely together to have all the lights on my desktop dance, shine, and emit just about any color of the rainbow. The desk was really the icing on the cake for my setup.
I wasn’t in the market for a new gaming desk, let alone one that had RGB lighting. My gaming center genuinely feels like a command station now, complete with a color scheme and design that I chose. As far as I know, the Ewin desk is limited to the preprogrammed schemes, but they were close enough to the lighting that I chose on my desktop. I was relieved when everything came together and I could admire something that was customized to my tastes. Because, at the end of the day, this is where I’m choosing to wind down and spend my relax time.
Once again, I find myself surprised and impressed with the offerings from Ewin Racing. The Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk is a sturdy, quality gaming desk that happens to feature RGB lights. You can let the lights dance about or simply lock them into a color of your choosing, if it matches up with your current color scheme. Ultimately, I’m happy as to how everything was finally pieced together and how it feels like it’s mine in terms of a custom gaming station.
You will have to keep in mind what you want on your desktop though; there are no shelves for your tower or drawers here. These are the sacrifices for vanity, I suppose.
Overall, if you’ve been wanting your PC’s light show to extend beyond keyboards, mice, motherboards, and RAM, then the Ewin gaming desk is where you start or end your RGB journey.
Price: $399 USD
Dimensions: 120 cm wide X 68 cm deep X 75 cm tall
The Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk has easily become a sturdy, yet, important set-piece to my gaming station. What initially intrigued me as a gimmick has become part of my lighted PC gaming station experience. It matches up well with a number of different RGB products, such as my Asus Aura Sync motherboard, AMD Wraith Prism cooler, RGB RAM, and Razer Ornata Chroma. As a fair warning, you will lose out on standard desk features, like storage, drawers, and a platform for your PC. However, the desktop offers ports to feed cables through for easy management. It’s the kind of accessory that can complete your RGB light show or be the first thing to drive you to buy more hardware with dancing lights. The end result, though, was something that felt customized to my tastes.
Decent color palette
Sturdy, wide, and comfortable design
Mostly easy to piece together
Cable management ports on both sides of the desktop
Swivel cupholder is a nice addition and use of space
Losing out on desk storage space
Could have done more (given the price) to offer more custom colors and patterns
