DX Racer 1 Gaming Chair Review

The Racer 1 is one of the best-selling if not the most popular gaming chair in Germany. It is evident that the main argument for its fame is the attractive pricing: The Racer 1 is the cheapest entry into the world of DXRacer. Even though it seems that the UK’s resellers are not able to draw level with the German pricing, I think this is just a matter of time.

In this review you will find out that the Racer 1 is based on the Formula Series – to be precise: It is a slimmed down version of it. I will show you where the differences are and if the lower price makes up for possible limitations in functionality, quality or optics.
