AKRacing Gaming Chair Onyx Review

Real leather gaming chairs are exquisite. That’s why AKRacing decided to launch their first genuine leather series – it’s called Onyx. However, the standard Onyx is covered with PU-leather. If you want to order the real leather model you have to choose the Deluxe version. This is exactly what I did recently and we are going to examine this chair to the bone in today’s review – stay tuned for some surprising intel!

The first brand that offered a genuine leather chair was noblechairs – the EPIC Series had a great start in the German market, and it seemed like people have been missing a high-class chair that provides a bit more than the standard gaming chair with PU-leather and wobbly armrests. Let’s see if the Onyx series is on a par with the very successful EPIC and ICON Series.
