When you’re picking out the best gaming chair money can buy, it’s also absolutely crucial that you pick one up from a premium, respected chair maker with a proper heritage – or, alternatively, a new brand that comes well recommended by others.
With a lot of new entrants in the market just lately, the waters are now well and truly muddied, making it hard for the uninitiated to tell if a gaming chair has the build quality to go the distance.
The makers that follow here are approved by T3 to be gaming chair producers of the highest quality: Nitro Concepts, Secretlab, GT Omega Racing, EWIN, Noblechairs, X Rocker, DXRacer, Vertagear, Corsair, Brazen, and Songmics.
Butt sore from too much sitting? Well, you clearly don’t have an Ewin Racing gaming chair. Our behinds have been sitting on Ewin chairs for the majority of 2020, and so far, we have no complaints. There are a ton of different models and colors to choose from, and with our 30% off code, you can get one from a great price. The quality is high, the lean is strong, and the neck pillows are clutch.
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.

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
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.
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.
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.

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.
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!

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.

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?
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.

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.

There is one universal truth regarding video games. It’s true whether you play on Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, or even old school consoles. You need a place to sit while you are playing.
I have been struggling with this problem for years. I like to sit closer to my television while playing (much to my wife’s chagrin) and I have tried all sorts of ways to do that. I’ve moved furniture. I’ve bought folding chairs. I have even resorted to sitting on the edge of my coffee table for short matches (trust me when I say that I ALWAYS regretted that decision).
Up until recently, the EFG office hasn’t been anywhere near my primary gaming area so using my office chair wasn’t really feasible. I DID start to use my desk chair… but it turns out that it was old, busted, and ready to fall apart. I was sad, and at one point repaired it with duct tape. That was all until E-wins came long.
Putting It Together
We received their Knight racing chair partially unassembled, and in a giant cardboard box. (My daughter told me to thank them for the cool toy. She loved her spaceship.) It included relatively clear instructions, all of the requirement components and a pair of disposable gloves. Some of the pieces are pre-greased during assembly so the gloves helped keep my hands clean.
All in all, assembly was quick and painless.My older son helped where he could (He was helpful in balancing it a few times), but I would have been able to assemble it on my own without any real trouble. Frankly, anyone with any experience putting together a shelf or two from Ikea will have no problems.
Note: The only part that you NEED to be careful with is to make sure that you assemble the seat and hardware below it in the correct orientation.
The Chair Itself
The E-Win Racing Chair we received from from their Knight Series of Ergonomic Gaming chairs. This is a budget gaming chair with an MSRP of $289. This is a great value for a quality gaming chair.
Everyone in the home office has a different opinion. I’ll skip the boring trope of just listing them all out for the sake of being concise.
All of us appreciate the level of customization the chair offers. We vary in size from a spry seven year old to a 6 foot tall man who could probably afford to lose a few pounds. All of us are able to sit in the chair and adjust it to feel like our heads, necks, and backs are well supported.
We also found that this was a great chair for families that share equipment to use. This is because there are enough controls to adjust its position for comfort, but not enough that we need to reconfigure a dozen dials for each person.
The only real complaint comes from my wife. She prefers her seats to have more cushion and the Knight chair is more firm than she is used to.
We’ve had this chair for a few weeks at this point and we are very happy with it. We’ve played on folding chairs, bean bags, couches, and even coffee tables. We’ll never play without a gaming chair at this point and I can’t imagine why we would choose anything other than an E-Win chair at this point. The product has been incredible.
The time we spend behind a computer screen has increased so much throughout the years. Some of us get up from our computer desks at work and go straight back behind one when we get home. Whether it’s streaming our favorite video games, recording a podcast, or making content videos, we spend a lot of time sitting. Even those of us who just casually play video games, it’s all about being comfortable while we sit for extended periods of time. Well, we are here to tell you, EwinRacing Gaming Chairs are here to make you as comfortable as you can for all that sitting.
EwinRacing has been in the gaming chair scene since 2016, where they were an OEM leader in office chair manufacturing. They continue to strive for a professionalization in the gaming chair field while focusing on a strict quality inspection process. The chairs have a heavy metal-based frame, padded with memory foam, and then coated with high quality, stain-resistant PU-leather. That means, with a clean cloth, this chair can be cleaned repeatedly without surface damage. The craftsman truly stands out with each chair that can be easily seen from start to finish.
The EwinRacing Gaming Chair showed up in a pretty big box. We had help getting it in the door and in the room for the unboxing. Getting everything out of the box only took a few minutes and to our surprise, the neck and lumbar support cushions were already attached to the backrest. Typically these come separate when ordering from other companies, and we thought it was a nice touch that EwinRacing had already put the cushions on where they needed to go. After getting everything laid out, set up and building the chair was pretty easy. Overall it took us a tad over twenty minutes to build the chair with just one person.
The only real trouble we had was getting the backrest attached to the seat of the chair, which is the most common complaint when putting together any Gaming Chair. It took us a few minutes to get the bolts lined up into the backrest, but we feel with a second person it would have made this much easier, as we know from experience. The trouble was trying to balance the back of the chair to sit in the brackets of the chair. A bit of a hiccup, but not much of an issue. After getting the two parts together, the rest of the chair assembly was easy. The wheels snapped into the five-star base, and then the hydraulic system into that. The seat then sat down on that and before we knew it, we were done.
First impressions after we stepped back at the newly put together masterpiece were amazing. The chair that was right for us, more about that later, was the EwinRacing Hero series. The chair looked great and the pop of color really caught our eye. Just seeing the picture online doesn’t do it justice as it does in person. You can clearly see the handmade craftsmanship that goes into each chair.
As if it wasn’t love at first sight as it was, we were in for a real treat when finally sitting down and trying it out. It had a nice firmness to it, but not too hard where it was going to be uncomfortable after a long sitting period. We were quite impressed with how well it fit our body. The lumbar cushion was already paying dividends minutes in as we could tell we were already sitting with a better posture than our last chair. We didn’t understand how great the neck cushion would be, and after a slight adjustment, it was a pleasant surprise. We jumped right into our first streaming session with it and we could instantly tell how much better this chair was than our last sitting arrangement. We weren’t constantly trying to move around and find the comfy spot. Once we found the sweet spot with the lumbar and neck cushions, we were more focused on the game instead of how uncomfortable we were at the present time.
We can happily say after a week of consistent use, those first impressions have stuck with us. When we’d finish up a long gaming session in our other chair, our neck and back would be in a bit of pain. Sometimes we’d find our self ending our sessions early because we didn’t want to sit anymore. After using the EwinRacing Gaming Chair on those same long sessions, we felt the same as we did when we first sat down. The way the cushions position you for sitting can not be understated. We never understood how important posture was until we used this chair as much as we have over the last week. We love to stream and now that we are comfortable for longer, we can keep doing our passion for extended periods of time.
EwinRacing has five different series to choose from over on their website, https://ewinracing.com. They claim that one size doesn’t fit all, as each series has a list of height and weight requirements to find that perfect chair for yourself. From the lower-priced Knight series, to the top end priced Flash series, EwinRacing offers a wide variety for weight, height, and price. No matter your selection, the same care for quality and customer satisfaction goes into each series of chair. Each chair comes with a five-year warranty on defects found in the material or workmanship and a ten-year warranty on the steel frame of the chair.
Overall, we couldn’t be more happy with this chair. It has helped extend our gaming sessions and has made them so much more comfortable. Though we have only used the Hero series chair, we feel confident in suggesting any EwinRacing Gaming Chair to fit your needs. You actually feel you are getting great value as nothing looks or feels cheap and you can really see the handmade craftsmanship. So if you are tired of shortening your gaming sessions because you just can’t sit anymore, then EwinRacing Gaming Chairs are the perfect thing for the cure. You will not be disappointed.
