My Racer 1 Review
Nothing out of the ordinary in matters of assembly. Handling all the parts, I did not notice any manufacturing flaws or anything appearing obviously “cheap” – everything is within the usual DXRacer fashion. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to put the Racer 1 together, and it is relatively easy to solo this encounter.
Surprisingly, the usual struggle with the screws that hold the backrest did not even appear: They went in very smoothly on the first try which put me in a positive mood right from the start. The only thing one could nag about is the synthetic out-of-box smell but the temporary nature of this “problem” relativizes it for me.
My First Impressions Of The Racer 1
Putting It’s Adjustability To The Test
My Résumé After Test-Sitting The Racer 1 For A Year
Size-wise the Racer 1 is a great fit for anyone between below average to slightly above average. I would limit the height to about 1.90m and the user’s weight to a max of 90, maybe 95 kilos if you are tall. The feel-good-range, however, is around 1.75m and 75kg with an elbowroom of 10 percent up and down.
Final Conclusion: Serious Rep For Quality Low Budget Chairs
Let us sum up this review:
- The Racer 1 is a low-budget version of the Formula Series from DXRacer
- Instead of PU or a PU/fabric mix, it is entirely covered in fabric
- The Aluminium base has been exchanged for a nylon alternative
- The chair has rocking, is reclinable (90-135°) and equipped with 1D-armrests
- Priced at around 200 quid this seat is the best-selling chair in Germany
- The manufacturing quality is on par with the company’s standards
So all in all, if you fit into this chair and find the design appealing you can make a cheap entry into the ranks of DXRacer – assumed that the pricing is going to drop in the UK.
The Racer 1 is Germany’s most popular Gaming Chair for a reason: You get DXRacer quality & prestige at a bargain price. This trimmed down Formula chair offers everything an entry-level racing seat is supposed to bring to the table. Under reserve – it is still too pricy in the UK – the Racer 1 earns the goturback.uk Bronze Award for its excellent value-for-money ratio.
