When E-Win offered to send this chair out I was skeptical because of how much I didn’t like my current (Amazon Special) gaming chair and I had never heard of them before. But before we get started into this I want to take a moment and mention that I do understand that the styling of these types of chairs is rather polarizing, people either love it or hate it, and I’m not going to try to convince you to like it if you don’t or dislike it if you do. I personally think they’re really cool for racing game fans, which I quite enjoy.
Lets first touch on assebly. The assembly process was smooth and easy with everything needed to put it together coming in the box, even a pair of grippy gloves so you can more easily handle the components. The strut and wheels pop right into the base and then attaches to the seat with 4 allen keyed screws, the back goes on in a similar fashion…that’s it. it’s that simple.
The overall build quality is solid, unlike my old chair. A stiff steel frame is hidden under their high density cold molding foam which is surprisingly comfortable even after extended screen time. The leather-like material is soft to the touch but durable enough to not get torn or worn out quickly from basic use. Butt support comes in the form of resistance straps rather than a solid bottom which makes for a much more comfortable sitting experience.
If there’s one thing I can say this chair has going for it, which is honestly shared though most other higher tier gaming chairs, is adjustability. Not just height and tilt but full 4-D adjustability on the arm rests. I never knew how much I wanted this until I had it, being able to adjust the seat to the height that I needed while keeping the arms from hitting the desk when I stand up is invaluable.
Can I take a moment to mention the wheel design? They’re corny, I get it, but they’re still corny. That aside they roll easily even in higher pile carpet like I have in my office and are still quite on solid surfaces.
All of that with the addition of the head pillow and lumbar pillow make this chair easy to fit what you want it to support and feel like, provided it’s the right one for your height and weight, and still look flashy at the same time.
After the bad experience I had with the Amazon special gaming chair I just threw out I didn’t have much in the way of expectations for this chair from another company I had never heard of, but I’m now really glad I did. If you’re in the market for a racing inspired gaming chair that isn’t asking for your life’s savings you might want to look in thier direction. With an MSRP of $349 they’re well priced to their competitors without sacrificing at all in quality.

We would love to hear your thoughts on these style of gaming office chairs down in the comment section. And while you’re down there, share with us your current chair you’re using.
For those curious the first chair next to the trash can in the video was my old chair, just because they look similar in styling doesn’t mean they came anywhere close in quality. The $100 Amazon chair was trash fodder at best.
Total Score: 8.5
