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.

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
@B.Hutch
Is the black sold out? I only see the Carbon Black option.

The shipment of the colors that are missing from this drop did not come in time for this drop unfortunately. They should be here on the next drop (yes, I know I said that last time and I am sorry about that) but they really should be here next drop (in about 4-5 weeks). I will say that I prefer the black/carbon over the all black and I am sitting in the all black ARKacing ONYX Deluxe now so I completely get your preference of all black. In person it looks so much better IMO.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
In person the carbon looks better? Because in the photos it looks a little cheesy. I'm a car guy too, so I definitely appreciate carbon fiber. The ONYX is the AKRacing chair I'd REALLY want, but that price tag is not nearly as appealing as the price tag on this drop.
Thanks for the info though, I may just have to wait 4-5 weeks and see what the next drop entails :)
Hi, I have joined the drop. Could you please switch my color, Arctica, to "Tri-color" if any drop for Tri-color cancels out? Would much appreciate that and live as an AKRacing slave for the rest of my life.
Looking at the image above with the five chairs, it looks like the Tri-Color and Arctica don't have the pillow go through the headrest like the other three variations. My question is, do they have the same hole in the headrest for the pillow or are they different from the other three chairs?

It looks like it just sits there?
Medo
Ugh good eye... I hope it doesn't matter as I got the Arctic as well.
BUT CAN YOU DO THIS???
What is the main difference between this and the LX? And which has more foam from a comfort perspective?
stuey138
Stuey,
The Premium series chair has an additional 1.1lbs of High density cold mouled foam. It has the upgraded seating mechanism that allows you to "rock and lock" your chair in any desired position. It has upgraded 4D arms, meaning you can adjust them in 4 different ways. Overall the Premium series is AKRacing's flagship chair.
Premium Adjustable Armrests: 4D Mechanism Type: Advanced mechanism Tilt Angle Lock: Yes Net weight: 53.55lbs Foam total weight: 6.4lbs
SX/LX models Adjustable Armrests: 3D Mechanism Type: Standard Mechanism Tilt Angle Lock: No Net Weight: 49.55lbs Foam total weight: 5.3lbs
Cheers.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thank you so much, I had already gone in on the drop because I checked the actual akracing site and saw that the Premium had 30 percent more foam than the EX compared to the LX only having 10 percent more. Combined with the fact that the Premium and LX dropped at the same price and the Arctica didn't cost extra, it was too good to pass up. Can't wait to use it once I go back to college.
I got in on the drop, the premium carbon black looks so clean, I just wish I knew how the white one looked because I would’ve ordered that one instead haha. Either way I can’t wait I’m excited for this chair!
@AKRacingAmerica If we ordered a chair but would like to switch the color. Is that possible given that the drop is over?
I am interested in getting the Tri-Color but how well does dirt and smudge leaves on the chair after extended use? If it stains easily i would just get the carbon black. Thanks
MoMsTouch
Howdy. After testing many AKRacing chairs and some of then white I can tell you the PU quality is superb. They do not stain or smudge easily and they are a brease to clean.
I am confused looking at some of your specs regarding min seat height from the floor. Can you please clarify the a] min seat height from the floor to the top of the seat and the b] min height from the floor to the top of the arm rests?
gk19
remember the height is adjustable. When the seat is at its lowest point, height measures 17" and when the seat is at its highest point the height measures 20.3"
hope it helps
quimera2325
I think i have to add seat thickness to it as well, dont i ? So 17 "+ 4.3" = 21.3" from the floor to top of seat ? Is this right. Or is 17" including the seat thickness.
Does it absorb the sweat or start stinking after a while ?
deshmej
The chairs that start stinking after a while are the ones made with cheap PU material and standard foam material and or non metal frames. AKRacing chairs are awesome made with the highest quality PU material, Cold Moulded Foam, and treated metal frames.
All of that meaning that they will not wear, stink, or rust. We have sold literally thousands of AKRacing chairs just this year alone and no one over the last 3 years has ever complained of any weird smells. They are for sure the Massdrop communities favorite!
deshmej
Bro why you sweating sitting down?
Are you guys going to drop this item again?
YoketheJokic88
Yes! Its up now.
What is the comparison between this chair and the same priced Massdrop x AKRacing Aero? They are the same price so can't decide which is better. Also does either of these rock/tilt back a little when leaning back?
Magictek
They are the same chair essentially. The style is the difference. Yes, both all rock and tilt.
I just ordered the premium obsidian, but had a question. Is the ONLY difference between the obsidian and the other colors the flares on the seat? I didn't like the flares being so narrow, so went obsidian which was nice and flat, but figured I should ask if there were any other differences while I still have the opportunity to change my order. Thank you.
Thadar
So it looks like the obsidian has a standard mechanism as opposed to an advanced mechanism... what's the difference?
Thadar
Yes, the Obsidian has the flat seat and the standard mechanism. There is actually very little difference between the standard mech and the advanced one. The advanced supports "rock and lock" which sounds great but, honestly, a lot of people never use. It allows you to tilt both the seat and the backrest together to an angle up to 12 degrees and lock it. All of our chairs have recline up to 180 degrees. That is where the seat stays flat but the backrest reclines to the angle you prefer.
Just got into the drop that ended on Monday I see it is due to ship at the end of this month is that still the case or may it ship sooner I checked the tracking portal at akracing.com and didnt see anything yet email wise so was just curious. Thanks in advance!
ericb1231
Mine shipped suppose to get it rh Tuesday
is this suitable for someone 5'8''? Also, can someone list all the current AKRacing models that would give me enough space (not cramped) but fits me still? Looking at this, MAX Series and maybe something else.

How does the Onyx Deluxe size compare to the MAX?
Also, are the Premium v2 chairs the same as the latest 2018 Premium Masters Series chairs?
I just made the drop for the Octane, didn't know this was next. Can I get this one instead? Will not let me cancel. Please. Update: All taken care of, Thanks Hilary at Massdrop Customer Service.
Is this a bit more expensive than last time around? I remember seeing 250 or sth :-?
Jokervn91
This is the 2018 model, it has an upgraded mechanism and armrests.
AKRacingAmerica
Upgraded. Alright!! Making my money worth it. I was waiting until there was a refresh or something. Going to buy it 10000+% sure.
Does anyone have issues with their chairs staying in a locked position? I like to lock the rocking motion so that it's angled a little back and it normally stays this way for about an hour or so. Then if I move forward or around just a little my chair makes a horrible sound and unlocks. :( Just wanted to see if this was normal or not. If not, how do I request a fix for this?
thedreamfinder
Do you have the older model?
AKRacingAmerica
I have the 2018 model. But I did contact support and they just sent me the correct part this week and it works perfect now. So I had a defect.
I have never ordered from this site, how lomg does shipping take?
anamarie-nall
Super long for most products. If there isnt uch of a price difference than amazon and you’re looking for fast delivery, i would go with amazon. On average (from my experience) takes around 1 month for most products.
anamarie-nall
We usually ship within four business days after the end of the drop. How long it takes you to get it depends on how far away you are from our facility in Southern California. But in any case, you should receive by about 10 business days after the drop closes.
@B.Hutch I assume the description is slightly out of date? I assume this run has the 4D arm adjustments and tilt angle lock.
MegaSloth
Yes it does. We will get that updated. Thanks for flagging.
Any chance that those living in the US 49th and 50th (AK and HI) states will ever be able to purchase this drop?
Is there a cloth version? Everything PU Leather I have ever owned started cracking and falling apart at just 2 years.
ValVadim
These for sure will not do that. They are backed with a 5/10 year warranty. AKRacing products are made with the highest quality PU leather. They are not like anything you will find in the office supply stores.
How can I check my package? What is tracking number? How can I use tracking number?

I think that was the expected shipping date not delivery date so I was surprised to see it ship today. This was my first drop and I've heard some horror stories about some people not getting their items for months so this was a pleasant surprise.
On the drop description page is the expected ship date from AKRacing. You can expect it to arrive 5-10 business days after the expected ship date of the drop. So the fact that you got it on May 10th means it shipped out early!
