@B.Hutch@AKRacing Will you guys doing another drop with AKRacing Max / Pro Big & Tall Gaming Chair. Was very interested in that one having Pro black white chair.
How are the wheels on carpet? And if so could I just not use the wheels at all. I like to sometimes sit more forward in my current chair off center. I wanted to get the onyx on the other drop you guys had but couldn’t make the deadline for it. I like to lean back a bit whenever I’m streaming a show on my pc. Would this chair be good for me sense the one I was lookin into is no longer available. Thanks for responding. Havnt gotten a new chair in ehh 6-7 years the ones I have gotten are hand me down.

Will you guys be doing another drop with the ONYX soon? Was very interested in that one and having read one of your previous messages about how the Onyx is your best chair. The double foam had me very interested. Thanks for the reply.

Yes, the Onyx will be available again in 3 or 4 weeks. Go to that drop and click the green request button. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-2018-office-series-chairs Massdrop will email you when it goes live again.
@B.Hutch@AKRacing How about offering the option of surface shipping abroad (via actual ships) We're already waiting for the drop to ship anyway what's a few more months. At least it's an option. Currently in Mauritius there's no AKRacing options and certainly the other available gaming chairs (Thermaltake and Vertagear) don't look as good. PS do you have any advice on the maintenance of PU leather, my experience so far is that after 8 months it starts coming apart (Tropical climate - ~70% humidity going up to 90% and 25-35C temps indoors)

I am the Director of Sales for AKRacing and we want to expand to as many regions as possible worldwide. Please contact us at service@akracing.com and ask for me mentioning this opportunity. If your serious then let's discuss it. I hope to hear from you soon.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Nice to meet you. I'll send you a mail within the next few hours. Thanks for opening a channel.
Anyone else ever feel like the chair could use a better lumbar pillow? The lumbar pillow that comes with this chair feels too thick and stiff, and doesn't contour with my back that well.

Actually I have a ProX chair.
kimoi
OIC, well unfortunately I dont have a trick to share with you on the PROX. But for reference the pillows are different on the PRO than the Premium.
B.Hutch@AKRacing Is it a good fit for a 6' height, 260 lbs guy?

Howdy Sir! It depends on a few things. How your weight is distributed. How big your legs are. Your personal sitting style (legs spread out or straight) and also if you prefer to have a race seat feel or not. At your size, if you sit with legs mostly straight and prefer a more race car seat feel then I would say yes this would be a great chair for you! However, if you would prefer more room then I would suggest either the MAX or PRO again depending on which style you like better. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-max-gaming-chairs-2018-models If you decide on the MAX or PRO it will come around in a few weeks. Just hit the request button.
Is this the newer version Akracing master series chair or the original? Thx

B.Hutch thank you very much for the fast response. I have a similar AkRacing gaming chair in my other office and love it. Going to get this chair today. Thanks again!
G3p0
Awesome! Enjoy!
Premium Master Series or Onyx? Both seem comparable. Can anyone provide input as to which may be a better choice? I’m 6’2” 180 lbs. I’m not a gamer but this will be used in my home office. Thanks!

Thanks for the info. Is there any way to get the footrest with the Onyx? It’s only listed with the Premium.
CB12
We do sell the footrest stand alone on Massdrop. You should see it come around again soon. We are working with Massdrop to offer the footrest as an add on option for all AKRacing drops. Looks like it did not make it up in time for the current ONYX drop. Just request it here and you can pick it up when it drops again... https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-adjustable-footstool
I know this is very subjective, but some of these color schemes are too busy for me on the high-end chairs. Adding more colors isn't always a better look. Really liked the style of the Octane and Player models, and hoping to see more cool two color looks in the future.
WillOGod
Will, actually we still make many two color options. In this drop 3 out of the 6 chairs are two or less colors. If you are looking for something like the Octane models then we do have the SX Gaming Chair that we offer here on Massdrop. which has 6 different two color options. You can request it here. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-sx-lx-core-series-gaming-chairs The EX Series is a frabric option which also has 5 two color options https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-core-series-fabric-chairs Cheers.
On the last day, literally an hour before this drop ended, my chair I've had for years broke and luckily I remembered this drop was live :)
Able to ship to Australia? Couldnt change from the US :(
REDD17
Shipping cost to Australia on something like this would be crazy expensive, like $300+ USD. You can purchase AKRacing locally.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
still cheaper lmao nah jk ahahah, thanks for the info
would this be a good gift for my dad? he's getting up there in years and has lots of back and knee problems. he's kind of heavy and usually rests leaning to one side and hunched over which tends to break chairs he uses. is this both sturdy enough to resist the strain for years to justify the price and ergonomical enough to help with some of his posture problems?
Amet
I think the MAX series chair would be the best option for him. Due to him being heavier and his sitting style you described I dont think he will like the side bolsters of the Premium Chair. The MAX has a flat seat bottom and is more comfortable for bigger/heavier body types. All AKRacing chairs are extremely supportive, it will help posture and are very ergonomic. Of course, just like with anything it depends on the user. You must setup the chair so you are sitting correctly. Your legs should be at a 90 degree angle, your arms should be at a 90 degree angle, your back should not be more than 100-105 degree angle. Your feet should be flat on the floor and there should not be too much pressure under your thighs. You should also adjust the lumbar support pillows to the correct locations to where they are supportive. This chair will for sure last him many, many years. It has 100% cold cured molded foam that does not break down over time. It has the highest possible grade PU leather which will not crack or flake. It also has a steel frame that is treated to prevent rust and corrosion. AKRacing makes the best chairs and we back it with a 5 year warranty on the chair and 10 years on the frame. Head on over to this drop... https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-max-gaming-chairs-2018-models hit the request button and you will get an email when it goes live again in the next couple of weeks.
Any idea when this may drop again? I'm 5'10" tall and 180lbs, will this chair fit me? I have the Max, the seat is to wide and the back is to tall.
seabreeze2000
Yes, this chair would fit you perfectly since the MAX seems to be to large. This will drop again in the next week or so. Please hit the green request button on this drop page so you will be notified when it goes live.
seabreeze2000
It's dropped!
Is the ship date on the purchase tab the date that it arrives at Massdrop from AkRacing , or is it the date that the product arrives at your house? Just curious. Bought this chair and I cant wait to get it. A response would be very appreciated. P.S. If it does ship to massdrop what would the estimated shipping be to my house from the distribution center?

I received a shipping notice, and am expecting FedEx to deliver the chair Monday, 3-4 weeks before I expected to see it.
P0TaT0
The Expected ship dates that are listed on all Massdrop drop pages are the shipping deadline that it will leave the shipping facility and be in route to you. Regardless if the product is coming directly from the vendor or Massdrop's warehouse. In this case, all AKRacing shipments come directly from AKRacing to you.
I wonder if AKRACING will do a drop for the footrest they sell?
What the heck is “rock it and lock it”? I keep bouncing between the AkRacing Obsidian here and the AKracing Premium in black here, as they have the same style backrest. I’m fine with the seat bolsters on the Premium. Should I save $20 and go without the “rock it and lock it” feature and get a footrest?
VoiletMind
"Rock and Lock" is a feature of the premium seat mechanism. It allows you to rock back and lock it in any position. Where most chairs you can only lock the chair in the upright position this chair has infinite locking positions. Also, this chair has upgraded 4D armrest that are more adjustable than the obsidian. I like these additional features personally and would suggest going with the Premium Carbon Black since you like the look of the Obsidian. There almost the same look.
Why cant it ship to the UK :(
Why can’t this ship to Canada? Even if it wasn’t free shipping.....
Yes! When is the next drop?!?
LLcesar
Now!
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Yes! I just bought one. Can't wait!
Any idea when there'll be another drop of these? I'm really digging that Tri-Color chair as it matches my Hotline build perfectly.
Succubusty
It's back buddy!
Is the AK racing Aero chair worth the extra $30 over this chair? I am 5'8 and 250 lbs.
KE4RZ1
Personal preference really. The Aero chair does offer some nice features that some really like. It has the flat bottom seat and the Alcantara Leather. The build quality, ergonomics, and support will be the same in both chairs.
Wish I had bought this carbon fiber chair. That's what I get for waiting so long. Maybe next time
XlegendzX
what did you go with?
I've been watching these for a while. Is it better than this highly rated Secret Lab Omega gaming chair.  $309 with Free Fedex Shipping https://secretlab.co/collections/omega-series
RalphTy
I absolutely loved my SL Omega. No complaints whatsoever
Why don't you guys ship foot rest until complaints?
Seandex
Howdy Seandex, The footrest have shipped and most who ordered received them yesterday/today. They did not ship out at the same time as the chairs. Sorry about that. Cheers.
How do you guys handle returns?
What is the difference between this one and the max that just ended? Why is this one $50 cheaper?

Any chance of you offering the Secret Labs chairs? I really can't do leather/pleather in a house with cats, and they offer a nice "racing" chair in fabric.
Keth
We do offer very nice fabric chairs from both AKRacing and Arozzi.
Why cant you guys ship this to EUrope ? Blakenewgate

Hi. Sorry, we don’t offer fabric on our higher end chairs. The Pro uses the very highest grade of PU leather with perforated cushion and backrest for breathability. We use totally the finest materials available for a chair at this price.
AKRacingAmerica
Sadly my cats will view it has a high priced scratching post, so pleather/vegan leather/real leather are deal breakers for me. Appreciate the response.
Just got the email saying my chair was shipped, then turned out my chair arrived two days prior to the email lol.
I purchased the "Silver" version of this chair from another account I do not have access to anymore so this will serve as my review.
I received this chair today, 3 days early, which was a great surprise and a kudos to Massdrop for their shipping efficiency. It took less than 20 minutes to assemble the chair.
The instruction suggest two people which I could see where that could have been helpful but I was way too excited to wait! I had no issue doing it alone, and the assembly was simple with pictures to follow. The holes are pre pre drilled, some of which have the necessary screws inside already in order to assure the line-up and ease of construction. The gas lift on my model (the "Silver" model) did not have any sort of cap on the lift. just a black tip so nothing needed to be removed but I did hesitate at first and try to remove what was there but was not necessary. That is my only knock on the build because that did make me hesitate on the build because I did not want to attach the chair if there was a protective tip, but can be me just overthinking. Overall, very simple.
The chair offers an adjustable lumbar support which is perfect because I need the support higher than the average person due to the shape of my back. I am 6' about 195, not over or under weight with an average build and feel as if this char was custom made for me. With that being said though, someone who is maybe taller or shorter than me would fit just fine in this chair as well. Plus there is so much support someone who may weigh more than me wouldn't have any issues either because this is by far the most comfortable chair I have ever sat on.
I have done intense research over the past 3-4 months, comparing prices, reviews, and basically making sure I am getting my moneys worth out of the chair. I could believe I stumbled onto this price for the chair, $249 for a chair that is currently retailing for $499 in unreal. I felt as if I was cheating some sort of system getting it for this price.
In my opinion, this chair is the best on the market even without mentioning of the great price, just sheer quality of the chair, solidarity of construction and customer service alone make this a top contender. Although I have not needed to contact any sort of support I have seen how interactive AKRacing is on several different forums and am blown away because as a consumer I have rarely seen that level of care and genuine interest in their customers experience with their product. The price feels as if I should be receiving a knockoff so the fact that I am getting the real deal is incredible in my eyes.
All in all, I absolutely recommend this product I did a lot of research and very pleased with my result.
BryanP
Darn, mine hasn't even said it shipped yet. I can't wait to try out my chair as well.
I have trouble to attach the head pillow. How can I attach it? A lot of videos had 2 holes instead of 1 hole
