Best chair for Gamers/IT workers

Been looking at some chairs for a while now and decided to take the plunge with the AK Racing Chair in Black/Red. I was not dissapointed in the item or Overclockers delivery service. I ordered after 1pm and it was with me the next day around 3pm. Brilliant.

The chair took about 30 mins to put togther and it is extremely good quality. When you get in/out of the chair it does not creak or bend to one side slightly when you put pressure on one of the arms - brilliant.

Being able to put the back down is fantastic and the cushions (not pictured) support the lower back and neck superb.

The material is very comfortable and does not cause you to get warm if sitting for extended periods of time, not like those faux leather things.

I cannot recommend the chair enough - oh and it looks the part too. If you get it, you won't be disappointed.

Very sturdy chair, a little unstable...

I love this chair, very comfy and sturdy.

Cons -
My chair came with the stitching on the headrest coming apart in a small spot - 1-2cm (fixed with a needle and thread)
The chair is a little unstable if you move quickly to the fully reclined position

Wish I bought this chair sooner!

fantastic chair for the price. I was wary of how good the quality would be for the price but I am very very impressed.

OC should update their description of this item. First thing everything mechanism wise and support wise is solid metal. I thought the arm wrest and tilt mechanism were plastic due to the photos but infact they are just plastic covers. So yes everything is quality metal other than the chair itself. Which has made me even happier as this will give the chair far more longevity.

The chair itself was very easy to put together by myself, look less than 30 minutes. Instructions are a little basic but still have everything needed to put it together, including removing red cap off the gas ram.

The chair is nice and large and very comfortable to sit in, it supports you in all the right places, I had a cheap ikea chair before resulting in lower back pain and numb butt after a short period of sitting. None of that with this chair. I like the included cusions aswell which give you support to the lower back and head.

Only thing i didnt really like was the plastic covers for the tilt mechanism. Little basic and didnt quite fit right or line up properly anyway making it look bad. I actually removed them and left them off.

Totally Worth the price

This chair is amazing for long periods of use, it is very comfortable and the cushions which come with it are also amazing.

The only Cons about this chair is the arm rests are not built very well, when mine arrived the left arm rest was split on the line connecting the two peices together, also there is another bad thing about this chair, Crumbs and other small things tend to get stuck under the bottom part of the seat, this part cannot be removed and cleaned

Overall the chair is worth the price, had this chair almost a year now and it is still working fine


Nearly 5 stars

Ok so first off this chair when built is perfect. It is so comfortable I was very surprised. It looks very nice the pictures on here don't do it justice. The reason it lost a star was because building it was a joke. It wasn't difficult once I realised the instructions were just rubbish. I looked in the bag and thought screws were missing. They were already fixed onto the chair and I had to take them out before building. It also confused me more as the images were showing different screws. Anyway brilliant product very nice and comfy. My other gripe is the delivery costs, very expensive. I ordered around 11pm on Thursday night and it came at 12 afternoon Saturday so I cant complain I just wish there was a cheaper option instead of only having next day only. Definitely recommend.



Now before I even go into how I find the chair I need to discuss assembly. It was really easy, I did find putting in some screws was a little difficult as the cloth of the chair kind of got in the way and with most thing lining up the screws took 2 or 3 tries. It wasn't until I finished that I noticed the biggest problem of all. The tilt worked fine but it would not move up and down at all. After a lot of looking at it blankly, and assembling and reassembling bits and pieces, I finally decided to call the customer service.... which I wish I did from the very start. Now as soon and I described the problem he knew exactly what was wrong... So basically on the gas lift, (with the newer models anyway) there is a small little red plastic piece on top. I first noticed it when I removed the gas lift from it's packaging and it fell out. I put it back thinking it was important as there was no reference to removing it in the instructions. That little red piece is from hell. It prevent!
s the whole chair from moving and it's really annoying to get out. I managed to stick a knife in the metal casing and finally pry it of and the problem was fixed. From how the guy talked, he had this problem as he actually owns this chair and many other people have had this problem as well, as he was telling me others were able to remove the red plastic piece. He said he thinks there is no reference to it in the manual because the red cap on the gas lift is something new placed by the gas lift manufacture. However if this is a well known problem at least include a bloody note or something.

Now that was very negative but on to the chair now. It's really nice. There isn't much to say. I have a waist size about 36" and I was worried it would be too narrow but nope it's fine. The cushions are really nice as well. The foam padding throughout feels nice. The adjustable back is also really nice for when I'm sitting upright gaming or slouching watching a video. Also, the kind of rocking feature is fun as well.

To sum up, great chair shit assembly and instructions.


Great chair

I was going to have the title for this review as "You get what you pay for" but then thought as it's still new how do I know this'll last?

Well for a start it weighs a tonne, the poor DPD delivery driver asked me what the hell was in there, it didn't help him that he carried a 25kg box from his van to my door by one of the plastic straps, and feels very very solid. It was very easy to build, I do like the idea of the bolts being in their respective holes so you know which bolt is for which bit without any chance, as long as you are not an idiot, of using the wrong one. The arms that can move up and down is a great feature, they're currently down, but the best feature is the lumbar support. I've never had a chair with it but now I'll never have one without. I lounge in chairs and get backache because of it, yeah I know but I can't get comfy otherwise, and this support means I can lounge but also keep my back in a better position. I can feel the difference already.

It may seem it's a lot of money for a chair, I'm tight so it is, but I'm sick of buying cheap chairs and they die within months so I have to dispose of the old one and buy a new one. Hopefully with this quality that is a thing of the past.


Best chair I've ever sat in

So after 3 weeks of using this chair I felt I should probably give my thoughts on it, now that the honeymoon period of the cool new thing has worn off.

I love this chair. No other way to put it. Unbelievably comfortable, I'm not sure if it says in the description that it comes with a head and lower back cushion that neatly strap around the chair, I'm not a fan of the lower back one but my dad uses it all the time in his lorry as he has lower back problems. The adjustable armrests feel a bit funny at first, and I'm not sure on their longevity due to being plastic, but they really help. Its really big too, I'm quite a broad shouldered guy and I was worried it wouldn't be wide enough, but no problems! Neither does it cause overheating, my brother bought a "gaming" chair from Argos at less than half the price, but the difference is like night and day, he gets really warm sitting in his, I haven't any such problems.

Money well spent, and I bet you would struggle to find a comparable chair at this price point, whether you are a dedicated gamer or work in programming such as myself I cannot recommend a good chair highly enough. My last chair was a cheap thing from Ikea that nearly ruined my spine. This one I hope will last me years.
