Is A DXRacer Chair Worth It?
Yes, a DXRacer chair is worth it. The company provides great value for the money and has different models to please most gamers size- and budget-wise. However, there are cases in which I would recommend other brands that might be more appealing to your personal preferences – but let us focus on DXRacer for now.
These are the features that every DXRacer chair offers:
- Adjustable backrest (from 120° to 135°) and rocking function
- Ergonomic cushion-support through lumbar and neck pillow
- Multidimensional armrests from 1D (Formula), 3D (Racing) or 4D (King, Tank)
- Synthetic-/PU-leather and/or fabric mesh cover
- Class 4 gas lift and aluminium (King, Tank) or nylon (Formula) base
- High-density foam with a density of 50-54 kg/m³
- 2- or 3-inch wheels (exchangeable with floor-friendly alternative)
- 2-year warranty on all accessories and lifetime on the frame
My Top 3 DXRacer Recommendations
King, Formula, Racing, Tank … quality-wise, all DXRacer gaming chair series are more or less equal, and there is not one best seat. So this top 3 is to be regarded as a decision-making aid since there are just so many choices that it can be overwhelming for a lot of you. I always try to balance it out between DXRacer chairs for bigger gamers, seats for the average guy and special bargains, since these are getting asked for the most.
All DXRacers Series At A Glance. Which Chair To Choose?
Address back pain first, colour and design taste second – I think it makes sense to categorise the DXRacer models by size and fit. Go on by scrolling down to the heading that best describes your body-shape and then pick the chair whose optics strike you the most. With a click on the buttons, you will get to the respective detail page with size/shopping guide and my personal review!
S-M: Small To Average
These S-M DXRacer gaming chairs represent the very entry level and I do not fully recommend them. They are going to fit you if your height is between 1.65m and 1.75m and if you weigh no more than 60 to 80 kilos. The Elite Series is fine; it comes with 3D-Armrests and an adjustable backrest at a fair pricing – a viable choice for slim gamers. The Origin, however, even though it is the cheapest DXRacer chair, is very limited function-wise and overall stiff except for the tilt mechanism.
My advice: Go with the Elite or rather get yourself an average-sized Seat – it is going to fit you as good if not better and offers more flexibility.
The height of an averagely sized gamer lays between 1.75m and 1.85m while his weight is anywhere below 85kg and above 70kg. Both the Drifting and Racing Series are equipped with 3D-armrests while only the Formula seats rely on just one directional rests.
My Advice: Since the R-Series offers the same set of features as the D-Model but for about 100 quid less, it appears to be the most attractive choice in this category.
M-L: Average To Beefy
If you are an athletic person with broad shoulders or carrying just a little more weight than the average person, this is your category of choice. But also the average sized guy who just wants a bit more room and comfort will be happy with these chairs. The Wide Series is the cheapest but also least favourite DXRacer Series out of the three – it only has 3D-armrests, is less robust and lacks breathing room. King and Iron are very similar although the K-Series can carry a bit more weight and has a higher backrest.
My advice: If your weight is 80-100 kilos and your height 1.80-1.90 meters the King is going to be perfect for you – even smaller or bigger people are often very satisfied.
L: Above Average
There are not a lot of gamers I would recommend these chairs to. Why? Mostly category M-L or L-XL are better choices with the King or Tank being my number one advice. Still, if you find yourself around 100 kilos of weight and 1.90 meters in height one of these seats might just be a perfect fit – check out the detail pages if you are in doubt!
My advice: Go with the Sentinel because it has 4D instead of just 3D-armrests, offers more room and just looks way cooler.
L-XL: Large Built
These chairs can carry up to an incredible weight limit of 204.1 kg. In the field, I think gamers above 110 kilos and 1.80 meters will sit comfortably in these DXRacer gaming chairs. If you are very close to these stats and able to get used to the optics of the Boss, its lower price might be the decisive factor for you. The Tank as DXRacers flagship tolerates even more weight as well as height and has 4D-armrests.
My advice: If you are a huge guy looking for a DXRacer then go for the T-Series with its extremely robust built, comfortable dimensions and premium feature-set.
DXRacer Special Editions For Esport Enthusiasts
DXRacer cooperates with a couple of esports organisations and even released special editions within the Racing and King Series. The manufacturer designed these chairs in the natural colours of teams like Na`Vi, NiP or mousesports which give them a unique style that also appeals to gamers that are not even into esports.
Getting tired of the good old monochrome black and white, red, blue, pink or purple? Check out these special editions of the famous Racing and King models:
