Simple but functional – Overture Series
I just had to think about the name “Overture Series”. I had to ask myself why AKRacings invents a chair series called Overture besides series named Prime, Octane or Nitro since gaming is not very related to any musical stuff. I guess that they have difficulties with finding new names for their series because they come out with new models every few months. However, let us not philosophise about the name of this new series, the features matter:
As I already said, the featureset is very slim. You can only adjust the height of the armrests, no more directions are available. So we have 1D armrests here. The rest is very usual: You will get back- and neck pillows within your package, the maximum weight is 150kg and the backrest is reclinable in an angle from 90-180° to the seat. Of course the Overture Series provides lockable 12° rocking.
Design Alternatives & Original Accessories
There are plenty design variants so that everyone will find the colour he likes. You will find some of them in the image above – there are green, yellow, red, orange, blue, grey or black coloured models. These are not even all the available colours. You will find every single available model by following this link to Amazon. That is what I like about AKRacing: Many designs, a lot of accessories.
Accessories – you can configure your Overture as you want it. If you order it, you will get with the standard specs. But you can order different types of armrest pads for example in case of you do not like the standard model. There are 3 types of pads: Type 1-3 on Amazon. In case you are a little bit taller than the average gamer you have the possibility to order the extended gas lift which offers 2cm higher sitting.
What I can really recommend are the AK Rollerblade Casters. They will make your chair much quieter when you move. That could be helpful if you still live with your parents or family and you want to be as silent as possible at night. You will find them here.
If you have clicked through my website already, you will recognise this graphic. And if you have also taken a look at the chairs from AKRacing, you will see that they often accommodate the same audience. The Overture Series is one of these series. It is made for the average build person. So if you are between 1.70m and 1.90m tall, the Overture Series fits your height. Remember that your height should stay in relation to your weight. That means if you are 1.80m tall and weigh 130kg you will not sit comfortably on this chair.
You will be happy with the Overture Series if you have a slim or “normal” figure. But if you are overweight, you should have a look at the ProX Series from AK. If you are open to other brands, I can recommend the noblechairs EPIC Series, the ICON Series or DXRacers King Series. The chair with the biggest measurements is the Tank Series.
