Brand-New Chairs From an Industry Leader

It’s 2018 and gamers are demanding more than ever in their seat of choice. To meet those demands, AKRacing is rolling out brand-new new models, four of which are offered here. Each chair in the lineup is built on a solid metal foundation with high-density mould-shaping foam and a class-four gas lift that supports up to 330 pounds. They’ve also got 3D-adjustable armrests (4D on the Premium models), a tilt lock, and an adjustable recline all the way back to 180 degrees—great for taking a nap during a long day. Engineered for long sessions of work or play, each chair comes with lumbar and neck pillows for added support—not to mention they’re backed by AKRacing’s industry-leading warranty. The base price is for the EX models, but you can upgrade to three different models if you’re looking for something different.

Note: Note: At checkout, choose the EX models (base price), the SX models (+ $30), the LX models (+ $50), or the Premium models (+ $120–130). All chairs come in multiple colors and prices may vary by color. See checkout options for more details.

Due to escalated shipping rates, shipping to the non-contiguous US is not available for this drop. Any orders from Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and other American territories will be canceled.

EX Models

The backbone of the 2018 collection, the EX models is supported by a full-metal frame with anti-corrosive black paint. It features all the quality features you’d look for in an adjustable chair—3D-adjustable armrests, 180 degrees of recline, a class-4 gas lift, high-density mould-shaping foam, etc—plus fabric upholstery to cover it all. The result is a comfortable, durable, and sleek looking chair that you can’t go wrong with.

Built with all the features of the EX models, the SX models kicks things up a notch with handsome polyurethane leather upholstery. It also sports a more streamlined look with more aggressive color accents.

LX Models

Like its predecessors, the LX models has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from an AKRacing chair. This model, however, features a wider steel frame and heavier foam padding to support more full-bodied gamers. It, too, has aggressive color accents to set the tone in your gaming setup, plus comfy polyurethane leather upholstery.

Premium Models

The top of the line is the Premium models. Designed with 4D-adjustable armrests, high-tensile strength molded aluminum, and even heavier foam, it’s as comfy as AKRacing gets—and that’s saying something, as the company has become a leader in the gaming chair space. It’s also available in a sporty tri-colored look and some bold office-friendly colorways that you won’t find on the other three chairs.
