EWin Racing Flash Series XL Gaming Chair Review

INTRODUCTION

 

ewin racing flash xla

Just like with most gaming peripherals like keyboards, mice, pads, headsets and even LCD screens ergonomic bucket chairs have also flooded the market (perhaps a little faster than we were expecting). However although there are countless models for people to choose from that have different shapes, features and colors there aren’t that many actually aimed towards larger people and that’s not really hard to tell since out of our 12 gaming chair reviews only 2 are really aimed towards such consumers. Now as many of you are well aware currently most gaming peripherals manufacturers have released such products and although not all of them actually make their very own gaming chairs (thank OEM manufacturers for that) it still would be best if such models were not as hard to come across. EWin Racing may not be the very first gaming chair manufacturer to come in mind but they offer an entire line of gaming chairs designed to cater to the needs of larger people called the Flash Series XL and with us we have their brand new black and red model.
EWinRacing Chair was newly founded in 2016 after being a leader OEM office chair manufacturer. With the development in design and research, we strive for a professionalization in gaming chair field. Even more in order to bring you a healthier and relaxing environment we will continuously pursue humanism in design and manufacturing ergonomic gaming chairs. What’s more our strict quality inspection process and standard ensures you a better chair for better life. Visit www.ewinracing.com for more information on our products.

What makes the Flash Series XL stand out from most gaming chairs in the market today is its target audience since its frame was designed for people up to 2 meters tall and 300Kg heavy (89cm tall backrest with 57cm wide seat). Unfortunately although the Flash Series XL line does feature a reinforced steel frame (15mm in thickness) since it uses the same class-4 gaslift as with the rest of their models the maximum supported weight (seat/backrest included) is actually no more than 150Kg. Other features include a PU leather cover, foam density of up to 60Kg/M3 (obviously for the seat), 4 directional adjustable armrests (height/position/orientation), removable head and lumbar pillows, 70mm nylon caster wheels (EWin says 3 inch ones but these are actually 70mm and not 75mm in diameter), backrest adjustment (up to 155-160 degrees) and the somewhat classic tilt/rocking (up to 12 degrees) and height adjustment mechanism we find with most desk chairs.

PACKAGING AND CONTENTS

EWin Racing ships the Flash XL gaming chair inside a large box that has their logo on all sides.

 

 

The chair parts were packed extremely well as you can see from the above picture.

 

 

The 5-star aluminum base was placed at the top of the box so we took that out first followed by the backrest which has both removable pillows attached.

 

 

The large seat was next (the 4D armrests are already attached).

 

 

Next we took out the five 70mm caster wheels, instructions manual, large size gloves, two Alen keys, three small round taps and the two plastic side covers.

 

 

EWin packs the typical butterfly tilt/rocking and height adjustment mechanism with the Flash Series XL so that came out next along with 3 Allen screws and the class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover.

ASSEMBLY

Once again we started assembly of the chair by mounting the 70mm caster wheels to the 5-star aluminum base.

 

 

It’s the 3rd time we’ve received a gaming chair with large caster wheels.

 

 

Placing the class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover on the 5-star base was the next step.

 

 


The base of the seat has a total of three green elastic bands for increased support.

 

 

As you can all see each 4D armrest is attached to the seat with no less than 4 Allen screws.

 

 

Mounting the butterfly mechanism requires a total of 4 Allen screws as seen above.

 

 

To mount the backrest onto the seat you will have to use two Allen screws on each side (a small opening is placed between the two Allen screws).

 


After that you will need to place the plastic covers and the screw taps again as seen above.

 

 

The upper body is now complete and I have to admit that it looks very nice.

 

FINISHED LOOKS

 

ewin racing flash xl 19t

The Flash Series XL gaming chair looks very good and is actually among the top 3 chairs to arrive in our lab with as much foam density.

 

 

The PU leather used may not compete with the one used in the X-Comfort by Thermaltake or with the one of the EPIC by Noblechairs but it’s still very good.

 

 


The company logo is placed on both the head and lumbar pillows.

 

 


The armrests can be height adjusted from 29cm all the way up to 36.5cm.

 

 

Just like all 4D armrests the top can move forward, backwards, left, right and diagonally to suit your style.

 

 

This is the rear of the Flash Series XL gaming chair.

 

 

EWin uses a head pillow that features a clip, not something we see a lot.

 

 

Although the backrest doesn’t fall all the way (180 degrees) still it does fall up to 155-160 degrees and thanks to the good amount of padding it’s very comfortable.

 

CONCLUSION

 

 

ewin racing flash xlb

We first heard of EWin Racing quite recently but after checking their Flash Series XL gaming chair we have a pretty good idea as to why they’ve been the OEM go to manufacturer by some popular gaming peripheral companies. You see the Flash Series XL is not only one of the two largest gaming chairs to ever reach our lab but it also features a very good level of quality, plenty of padding (foam density), large caster wheels, reinforced steel frame, 4D adjustable armrests and its backrest can drop up to 155-160 degrees. Unfortunately by using the classic butterfly tilt/rocking mechanism the chair doesn’t feel as sturdy as it would had EWin Racing used the Z-support tilt/rocking mechanism found in many high-end models so we really hope they will eventually start using that as well. Oh and did we mention that the Flash XL series is available in several different colors and designs? Check the above picture for some of them.
EWin Racing claims that their chairs are affordable compared to their competition but after checking the price tag of the Flash Series XL Gaming Chair it doesn’t seem to be quite right (some of their other models however are quite affordable). To be more specific you can currently get the Flash Series XL model for USD429 inside the USA (EWin USA) and 389Euros inside the EU (EWin EU) a price tag which is not that far off from let’s say that of the X-Comfort by Thermaltake. The good news is that the Flash Series XL is taller, wider and has more padding than most models we’ve received so far thus it’s more ideal for large people so at least for them this is the obvious way to go. Overall thanks to its size, foam density and features the Flash Series XL gaming chair is actually a very good choice for large people which is why it gets our Golden Award.

EWin Hero Series HRD Gaming Chair Review

Overview

HardwarePeripherals

Manufacturer

Price at time of Review$359

WHAT WE LIKED:

High density memory foam, more than average height adjustment, slim lumbar pillow, sturdy metal frame and base, 155 degree recline, well packaged and easily assembled.

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Price is a little steep, embroidery frays over time, plastic bar hits your head when fully reclined without pillows, this model lacks additional armrest adjustments,

BOTTOM LINE:

A well designed chair with negligible faults, but the price is currently at a place where you may be better off with either a less expensive model with similar features or pay a little more for an upgrade.

Introduction

Chairs! Whether you’re being a cubicle jockey or gaming until your butt goes numb, a good chair goes a long way. Now EWinRacing has thrown their hat in the pool of gaming chairs, an analogy that has gotten away from me. Have they made the most epicurean masterpiece to which one should perch their posterior? Have they simply made a good looking chair? Let us find out. To the REVIEW! After these messages:

EwinRacing chair was newly founded in 2016 after being a leader OEM office chair manufacturer.

With the development in design and research, we strive for a professionalization in gaming chair field. Ever more, in order to bring you a healthier working and relaxing environment, we will continuously pursue humanism in design and manufacturing ergonomic gaming chairs. What’s more our strict quality inspection process and standard ensures you a better chair for better life.

If you were having a hard time reading that, you are not alone. Moving on. Also, you can check out the video review if you enjoy watching the miseries of trying to open a box without cutting the tape!

Unboxing and Assembly

I gently place the box on the ground. With swift determination I flip out my trusty knife to open the box. But what is this!? “Do Not Cut” written beneath a warning of attention. Undeterred, my Christmas Day repertoire of exhuming skills unleash upon the cardboard prison… and wow is there a lot of tape.

I’m assuming that “Do Not Cut” is mostly placed in effort to prevent someone from opening it with the knife pointed directly downward. It wouldn’t have mattered, however, as the first object in the upright position is the steel five point base. In the instance you are opening this box with a Crocodile Dundee knife, you knew what you were getting into. The chair back cushioned the center while the base and box of parts were cleverly positioned at the bottom. Being the lowest layer wasn’t the clever part so much as the box of smaller parts was pushing the seat against the opposite side of the box.

The other two sides of the box were supported by the armrests. Why is any of this important? I found out last time I opened one of these chairs that anything fragile really shouldn’t be in contact with any side of the box. Nothing was touching the sides of the box that couldn’t take a hit. The plastic facades on the hinge of the chair are buffered from the sides of the box by the armrests. Worst case scenario would be someone hitting the exact location of the facades on the bottom of the box or someone dropping it fiercely, but even then those hinge covers have at least a centimeter between them and the cardboard surface because of the seat. A dumb thing to be excited about and I don’t regret it. People need to know they should test their shipping containers.

If I had a criticism with packaging, it would probably be the location of the instructions. While the small part box is the obvious choice, taking inventory of the parts would be easier if you had the list when you opened the box. Along with the invoice of parts is a checklist of warnings and precautionary steps to take before assembly. Again, something we might want to know before we start taking parts out.

Assembly was simple enough. I appreciate that the majority of the screws were in the holes that you were going to place them already. Unscrew the back rest bolts, place on seat, put the bolts back in. Unscrew four base screws, place metal chair lift bracket, put the screws back in. There were only two, though it said there should be three, screws that came in a bag. No screwdrivers were needed, either. All of the screws had hex heads that you placed with the included Allen wrenches. The only difficult part of the build was the same problem with every gaming chair: attaching the seat and the back rest together. Maybe I need to assemble more chairs because that step always gets me. I feel like that is the one step that might require two people. I swear I’m doing it wrong every time.

Weirdest included item? Microfiber gloves.

As Josh pointed out, “I would love some microfiber gloves for handling these full glass PC cases, but why do you need them with a chair?” Are you displaying the chair for an event? You’ll probably want those gloves to keep all the greasy hand stains off of it. Are you going to use the chair? You’ll probably get greasy hand stains on it. Or at least I will. Doritos, tacos, sweaty game palms, head, back, french fries, and every greasy thing you can imagine will eventually touch this chair. Those stains also don’t tend to linger. Much like purposefully making a scratch on a metal plated apple device, assume people will have their grimy hands on your chair.

In the end, casters are still awkward to push down and it is awfully nice to sit in any chair after you assemble it.

The Sitting Experience

Is there some sort of butt comfort metric to compare how much better one chair feels compared to another? E-Win’s chair is a steel frame covered in cold molding, high density memory foam. Does this mean that the chair will never form to your body? I don’t know, I doubt I can wait long enough for the answer before posting the review. It is less stiff than other gaming chairs in the seat area.

My only issue with the seat is that it does not reach the back of my knee, something that I never used to have but now feels noticeable.

Thigh wings keep your legs from moving too far out of the proper ergonomic range (so far as I’m concerned, that is the proper name now). The equivalent foam rails that come out from the backrest is probably my favorite design feature. It both keeps the body’s mid section in place while also contouring with the lumbar pillow when it’s attached. Most gaming chairs are built less for all-around comfort than intentional ergonomics. Those body rails lining the edges are intended to keep your body from leaning or positioning your legs in improper ways. As a result of the design, if you sit cross legged, slumped to one elbow, or hunched forward it will likely seem awkward and uncomfortable. If you sit with all of your necessary joints at 90 degrees and sitting upright then no worries, marathon away.

Something I’d like to point out if you are in the market for this chair is the difference between the Hero Series HRD and HRC. The HRD has 2D armrests. That’s a fancy way of saying it goes up and down. Technically if you loosen the screws for the armrest you can move them left and right a smidge. The HRC has the fancy 4D armrests that rotate, shift back and forth, in and out, break dance, pop a wheely, you get the gist.

Personally, the 2D is plenty as the left and right adjustment can bring them inward a little more. The default armrest distance feels a little far for me. It works as a resting position to have my arms spread out but keyboard and controller related tasks require your arms to be in a little more. If you have broad shoulders and are built like a Battletoad, you can dismiss my opinion.

Reclining with gaming chairs is a little out of control. I understand throwing the seat back to relax, I do! Full 180 degree recline is more terrifying than comfortable. To my relief, the Hero Series E-Win stops around 155 degrees. That extra 25 degrees you’re not bent backwards goes a long ways towards being able to get back up without assistance. Also, while we are talking about reclining, I wouldn’t suggest leaning all the way back if you do not have the head pillow on.

Throwing yourself back at an angle of around 125-135 degrees will cause your head to collide with a stiff piece of plastic. I’ll talk a little more about that later. Headrest wise, it feels good. A non critical issue is if you squeeze the headrest, it sounds like crinkling. As if to fill some additional space someone stuffed it with newspaper. It doesn’t effect the feel of the headrest and you won’t notice the sound unless you squish it by hand but I thought it was interesting.

My favorite part of this chair is how hilariously high the vertical lift goes. At full height, my feet are dangling. Without shoes I feel like a kid in an adult seat.

I’m 6′ tall, so I typically only have this problem with bar stools. When I built a desk into my wall, I had made it high enough that I could get an old office chair’s arms under it. The issue afterwards was being unable to set my armrests high enough to be level with the desk so it was seamlessly flat to the keyboard and mouse. Now I can go above and beyond what I need. You may not experience this if you are all legs and no torso, in which case I apologize for misleading you.

Head and Lumbar Pillows

My mantra involving gaming chair pillows is, “all gaming chairs need a head pillow, lumbar should be used as needed.” There’s likely a more flowery way to say that, let’s call it a work in progress. The headrest and pillows all have the E-Win logo embroidered on them. As I’ve noticed in the past, anything embroidered that makes repeated contact with the body is likely to unravel a bit. Embroidery on cloth and other fabric materials don’t tend to have this problem, but the faux leather tends to not handle it as well.

Of the chairs I’ve used, the Hero Series E-Win Gaming chair has my favorite lumbar pillow. Other than fitting into the design of the chair, the pillow has a thinner profile and feels more natural to keep it attached. But like every gaming chair, the lumbar pillow pushes you off the chair a bit.

 

The issue is only exaggerated by the distance from the edge of the chair to the back of my knee. If you haven’t noticed, gaming chairs have their center of gravity towards the back of the chair so you can lean back safely.

Any forward weight tips the chair. The lumbar pillow can push you precariously close to the point of balance failure. Still, there’s times where you might want the lumbar pillow for lower back pain. I’m not saying you can’t sit on the chair with it, so much as asking you to be mindful of the chair’s center of gravity.

The position of the head pillow, as it comes in the box and on the picture on the website, is not a good way to use the pillow. Out of the box, the head pillow strap is wrapped around the lumbar pillow straps.

This is fine if you have the lumbar pillow attached, no problems. What if you don’t want the lumbar pillow? If you attempt to use the pillow through the plastic slot in the chair, it will just fall out because it is a full horizontal opening.

I’m curious what advantage there is to having a full horizontal slit as opposed to having only two holes to thread the straps through. Attaching the lumbar pillow to the back side of the chair works.

The straps still exist to attach the pillow. Honestly, it still isn’t at the best position to use it as the pillow ends up in the upper back.

 

I’ve found these pillows work best when in the neck area. In order to get the pillow up to neck area, you have to pull it up and lean back quickly into it. How do you avoid all of this mess of logistics?

Simple, give up on attaching it to the lumbar straps and pull it over the top of the headrest. Seems like that is what E-Win concluded as well, given the picture of their Hero Series HRC. My worry was over stretching the strap so it would no longer attach to the lumbar pillow.

Yes, it will over stretch, but attaching it to the lumbar pillow was inefficient anyway. Just commit.

Conclusion

This gaming chair comes in at $359, a price on the precipice of affordable and luxury. What sets the chair apart is its memory foam layer, additional backrest lumbar support/stability, and vertical height. There are several chairs $100 cheaper that also have a steel frame, lumbar and head pillows, 2d armrests, full recline, and metal five point base. With the exception of the awkward plastic bar across the headrest, there is nothing wrong with the design. My only hesitation is that the price is a little steep for the introductory gaming chair. I would say though, that if you could save around $60 it would be a perfect price, so not a huge gap. I’m going to go ahead and give this a Pure Overclock Great Hardware Award.
