EwinRacing Flash Series Gaming Chair Review

EwinRacing Flash Series Gaming Chair Review

Decades ago a gamer might be satisfied with a simple console, controller, and couch, but the needs of the modern gamer have expanded far beyond those meager accessories. Now, gamers can find accessories, add-ons, and gadgets that suit their needs and make gaming sessions more comfortable, like the EWin Flash Series gaming chair.

Plenty have probably heard and seen gaming chairs online, but they might not know what they offer beyond the basic computer chair. From a strict design perspective, the EWin Flash Series chair is extremely well made. It’s sturdy, well balanced, and it stands out in any office or gaming setup. The craftsmanship on the EWin Flash Series is impeccable, with a look that lets others know it is more than just the average computer chair.

Assembly for the EWin racing chair is straightforward and only requires a few basic steps. There were no questions once the chair was put together that it was built to hold a considerable amount of weight, and nothing about it feels cheap or flimsy.

In terms of its comfort, the EWin Flash Series is built for extended gaming sessions with minimal back strain. Its ergonomic frame ensures users are well supported and keep their posture. In fact, the EWin gaming chair is built to encourage correct posture, which is great for those gamers that have a tendency to slouch after an hour of playing.

Additionally, the Flash series racing chair comes with two adjustable support pillows for the neck and lower back area. Without these pillows, the chair would still be extremely comfortable and supportive, but with them, the Flash series fits snuggly to the contours of your body and lets you relax while gaming. And for those that don’t want to sit upright, the chair can recline to suit a more laid back position, while still giving full support.

Where the EWin Flash Series gaming chair does offer features similar to the average computer chair, it takes the basics and adds a lot more customization. The armrests, for example, have full range of motion – they can slide forward or back, rise up or down, or even flip around completely. Similarly, the seat can be raised or lowered to meet any desk or to match the gamer’s height.

Where some might balk at the $399 price tag for the EWin Flash Series gaming chair, there is no question that gamers are getting a high quality product from top to bottom. Comfort is essential when it comes to gaming chairs, and those who spend hours sitting in front of a monitor or TV will appreciate the amount of detail EWin puts into its product. Coming from someone that tends to get back pain during longer gaming sessions, the EWin racing chair is a dream to sit in and I really appreciated that it encourages proper posture.

Gaming chairs are obviously not going to be for everyone, but those that want to ensure top quality comfort (with a little style) should look into EWin’s Flash Series line.

The EwinRacing Flash Series gaming chair is available on EWin’s official site for $399. Game Rant was provided a sample chair for the purposes of this review.

The EwinRacing Flash series has everything you need in a gaming chair

A lot of players, especially ones who spend a big part of their day in front of a computer, don’t consider how little support a typical office chair has for the body. If you’re starting to feel a little ache after a long day looking at a screen hunched over in a swivel seat, it might be time to consider an upgrade

Luckily, there are all sorts of options for all sorts of body sizes and shapes, including one of the best– the EWin Racing Flash-XL Series Gaming Chair. It’s a fantastic chair with a large base, high back rest, and an assortment of adjustable features that make it as amiable as it is sturdy. It’s great for streamers, competitors, and casual players alike.

The chair, as the series name would suggest, is meant for larger users with extra space between armrests and taller-than-usual height adjustments that reach 13.4 inches off the ground. And even while it’s perfect for wider reaching players it can suit people of all sizes who want a bit of extra room, just make sure your desk is primed for an upgraded chair.

If your moving from a typical desk chair to this gaming chair the change will feel abrupt, but you’ll settle in quickly after a simple setup process with clear image-clad instruction manual. The number of versatile features including adjustable 4D armrests, 360-degree swivel, 155-degree adjustable backrest, and adjustable base height. The backrest can be layed back to enjoy a more casual experience like Firewatch while it can push your posture up for more focused, action-packed shooters like Overwatch.

It also comes with a support neck pillow and lumbar backrest, one for your lower back and one for your neck with removable straps in case you need extra support in either area. That brings up the question of the EWin Racing Flash-XL Series Gaming Chair’s overall comfortability. The answer is clear here, this chair may actually help with poor posture due to how good it feels to sit upright in, especially after aligning the backrest, height, and armrests to suit specific height and weight measurements.

The most noticeable of those features are the ‘4D’ armrests, something that isn’t as common in gaming chairs that we’ve seen before. Armrests are a constant point of frustration in a lot of chairs since they can often only move up and down, this chair allows the armrests position, angle, and height to be moved to suit the users preferences. The switches to change the position of the armrests are located on different sides of the rests and can be somewhat easy to accidentally hit but are altogether convenient.

After using the chair for a week it would be hard to recall a more comfortable gaming experience, perfect for long hours in Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a quick session in Monster Hunter World, or anything in between.

The lumbar backrest is perfect for anyone who has lower back issues and side cushions on the chair give additional support. The chair is so versatile you’ll want to use it for most things like working through your email or having dinner. Although you won’t want to spill and mashed potatoes on this chair, it’s got too much style.

The seat is conveniently cloaked in high quality leather, with memory foam underneath it cushioning the divide between you and the strong metal frame. Now while most chairs with this much versatility may look bulky and while this gaming chair is obviously on the larger side, the combination of slick black and sharp red make it look like the prized possession of a successful streamer.

Ewin Flash Gaming Chair Review

If we were able to, us gamers would quite probably be happy to sit with a controller in hand for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Eating would be pushed to one side, and drinking to the other, as real life gave way to the virtual world and the joys that it brings.

But we’ve all been there and day long sessions need more than just a TV screen, console and controller. There needs to be comfort, and no matter how much you think your bed is the best place to lay whilst gaming, or the sofa is for lounging whilst you take the fight to the hardest Dark Souls boss, for the most intense gaming sessions you need a chair. A chair that has been designed with gaming in mind. The Ewin Flash Series Gaming chair in fact.

Ewin are relatively new kids on the block – only having decided to specialise in gaming chairs since 2016 – but they’ve already got a reputation for delivering cheap but quality products. And that is pretty much what they’ve done with the Ewin Flash Series of gaming chair.

Gaming is an expensive enough hobby as it is, with games and consoles quite happily taking up the bulk of any take home pay should you wish them to, but things get even more expensive when we take a look at the accessories that make our gaming sessions all the better. Headsets can roll into the hundreds and gaming chairs can go even higher. But Ewin are here to prove that not everything has to be super expensive to be good – and even though the white Flash gaming chair that Ewin have kindly provided looks great, it only comes in at £300. In a world motivated by squeezing every last drop from every loyal gamer, that must be commended.

Yes, I know that isn’t the cheapest price on the market, and you could quite easily pop down to your local games store and grab a considerably cheaper product. But would it be as comfortable as the Flash? I’d guess not and as far as bang for your buck goes, the Flash is right up there.

So what do we have? Well, visually Ewin have pulled one out of the bag with the white and black Flash. It comes with a durable steel frame which sees a high density memory foam base dropped onto it. This is then covered in a glorious wipe-clean PU surface to create a firm but comfortable seat that is good for many an hour of gaming.

As you would expect, the seat is fully height adjustable thanks to an easy to use lever on the underside of the seat, delivering a multitude of heights to suit your body type. My 6ft 2in 85kg frame fits in nicely and there is just enough hug from the sides of the seat to allow for comfort. That said, if I was any larger then things may well be a bit different and a little more room either side of the hips would be required.

The 4D armrests that pretty much come as standard now on many decent gaming chairs are present, and these can be raised, lowered, swivelled, rotated and placed in all manner of directions and positions. They are fairly soft too and even after sitting in the chair for a few hours at a time I have yet to find any indents where the arms are resting. I’m not sure why these armrests never seem to come covered in luxurious padding though. That would be an optimum setup in anyone’s eyes.

The Flash also allows for reclining and a swift pull of the lever on the right side of the base will see you being able to position the back rest at any adjustment between 85-155 degree angles. Why anyone would seriously consider dropping the back as far as it goes, unless you’re planning on sleeping in it, is beyond me, but the range in movement is great and it’s a cinch to set things how you like. There is also a degree of tilt to the seat base and whilst this has been troublesome to operate once you find your desired tilt it sits in place very nicely indeed.

And all that’s left to talk about after that is the five-pronged aluminium base and the casters that it sits on. But honestly, what is there to mention about those? Lovely black coated alu and large castered wheels are pretty much the norm nowadays. They work well on both carpet and hard flooring, with the slightly over-sized nature of the wheels allowing for plenty of movement.

Sat here today, does the Flash take pride of place in my gaming sessions? Well, no, but that’s because it is going up against a considerably more expensive product in the SecretLab Titan Stealth chair – something which is a bit more spongy and just a tad more comfortable in the long term gaming stakes. But that also comes in at a different price point and shouldn’t be seen as a direct comparison. It’s pretty much like comparing a Ford to a Jaguar – they both do the same thing very well, but one is just a little more luxurious.

I have to point out that Ewin have created a brilliant product in the Flash gaming chair. However, other than for styling purposes, I can’t work out any reasoning for placing the huge lumbar support cushion anywhere near the thing. With it attached, it makes the seat near on unusable and it took just a matter of minutes before I had to feed the straps through the racing loops and throw it to one side. With that removed, comfort is hugely increased and allows for any gamer to spend a good few hours pounding away with their favourite games, making it a more than attractive option for anyone wishing to get in on the gaming chair bandwagon.

It’s also fairly tricky to put together out of the box. The instruction booklet, although clear, features a set of images that are initially tricky to follow, and actually connecting the seat back to the base with the included screws isn’t as easy as it should be. You’ll most definitely require a second pair of hands in order to put this chair together – if only because holding the back rest and hunting down screw holes alone is no easy task. Other than that though, it all goes together with ease.

But at the end of the day, the Ewin Flash does exactly what Ewin have set out to do – bringing a quality gaming chair at an affordable price. It looks great, it’s comfortable to sit in, and it should help enhance any long gaming sessions. The lumbar pillow issue aside, and for the price it comes at, you should be sticking this on your shortlist right now.

 

If you want to pick up the Ewin Flash Gaming chair (or any of their chairs for that matter), and wish to save a little money, then head over to Ewin right now and use the code ‘XboxHub’ to nab 15% off the price.
