Is A Vertagear Chair Worth It?
They deliver good quality chairs, serve a broad range of budgets as well as sizes and feature some unique concepts. So yes, a Vertagear chair is worth it. Their classic gaming chairs within the Racing Series, the S- and P-Line, offer everything that makes a well-rounded, modern racing seat:
- Backrest angle is almost steplessly adjustable down to 140° (150° on P-Line)
- Rocking function that can be adjusted to fit your bodyweight
- Lumbar and neck cushions for ergonomic support
- Soft and silent wheels with an appealing design
- 4-directional armrests on all chairs (except the SL2000)
- Easy to clean, waterproof and elegant PVC-leather covering
- Steel frame and alloy base carry up to 150 kilos (200 P-Line, 200+ Triigger)
- 10-year warranty on the frame and two years for the rest
The Triigger is an entirely different cup of tea that is to be regarded more like a performance chair than as a racing seat. It focuses on usability as well as ergonomics and features some exclusive controls (Triggers) to give you the best gaming experience possible. To find our more check out my top 3 Vertagear recommendations down below.
Too bad I have not had the chance to test the Triigger Line yet, but I certainly heard a lot about it and even sat on a 350 once. Anyways, based on my detailed review of the SL4000 and experiences I made with the P-Line I allow myself to assess the level of quality Vertagear stands for. As usual here are my top 3 recommendations for this brand:
Well Rounded Racing Chair Par Exellence: The SL-4000
Heavy Hitter And Best Allrounder: The PL-6000
Pure Performance On A Premium Level: The Triigger
Vertagears Product Range At A Glance
Vertagear has a broad and well thought out product range starting with mid-priced models like the SL4000 and finishing up with the unmatched, pure performance chair Triigger. I have not yet had the honour of testing a Triigger, but I suspect that it deserves a platinum label even though I see Vertagear in general as a golden brand. Whatever the outcome of your selection process might be you will end up with a highly customizable, stylish and quality gaming seat.
All in all, I think that Vertagear as a brand is not getting enough attention – whether it is a marketing thing they are lacking or the absence of a low priced entry chair, I hope they will figure it out and show more presence on the scene. I am looking forward to reviewing more Vertagear products soon and will keep you guys posted!
S-M: For Smaller Gamers And Racing Enthusiasts
If you are a smaller guy, the SL2000 and 4000 will most likely be your best choices. Also if you are average sized and looking for a seat that gives you that supported racing chair feeling, I would suggest the SL4000. To sum it up I guess that a weight below 85 kilos and a maximum height of 1.85 meters will allow you to sit comfortably in these chairs. If you are in possession of wider hips, you are better off skipping this category.
My advice: The SL4000 is the best choice in my opinion. For a few more quid you get 4-directional armrests instead of just the adjustable height, and its shape creates a more realistic racing feeling.
M: Probably The Best Fit For The Average Guy
If you are the typical everyday regular normal guy, these two chairs might be the sweet spot for you. But to be honest: The 275 can also satisfy bigger, taller as well as smallish gamers since its adjustability seems just limitless. The SL5000, on the other hand, hits it right in the middle in matters of pricing as well as sizing. To talk numbers, I think that 1.75m to 1.90m and a max weight around 100 kilos will be a safe bet.
My advice: Very hard to make a decision since we have got two entirely different kinds of chairs here. If I were to pick one, I would go for the 275 with its huge feature set and premium quality.
M-L: Extremely Versatile (Average – Tall And Big)
The P-Line is Vertagears answer to big and tall guys – the classic heavy duty chair. Even though it bears up to 200 kilos, I would limit the max weight to 100kg and height to 1.95m. If you are any bigger than that, switch to the Triigger since its highly flexible features, and robust frame yields more potential (or take a look at DXRacers XL chairs). On the other hand, even the 75kg, 1.75m gamer will sit comfortably in the 350(SE) if one adjusts it accordingly.
My advice: Again it is very hard to pick a winner, and it is also a question of pricing since the 350 is not a cheap chair. If you are looking for a more traditional racing seat, limited to a particular budget, the PL6000 gets my vote – for anyone else I would strongly suggest the Triigger.
