Will This item ever be back? I am very interested
I'm extremely disappointed! There is no possibility to adjust the slope. Your ass is below your legs. The back began to hurt after 3 months. Paralon with time, and it gets worse! It is impossible to fix the armrests and it's terribly inconvenient. You can not fix the rotation, which is also not convenient if you do not have a lot of growth. I am not satisfied.

Have you submitted a support ticket on our website. We will gladly help you out.
I finally found the time to open the box and assemble the chair. Unfortunately mine also suffers from the broken reclining cover but even more disappointing is the black base instead of the aluminum one as advertised. I submitted a ticket for the cover but what are my options for the incorrect base? I expected the chair as advertised not a bait and switch.

Sorry to hear of this, I have seen your ticket and am looking into this for you.

Update - I received the replacement cover AND the correct base about a month later which was a very unexpected surprise. Very happy with the purchase!
I received my chair last night. There was no significant damage, however the leather is "bent-up" or "scrunched" on the side where your right shoulder rests. Paying this much money for a chair, it was disheartening to see that right out the box, but compared to some of the damage I have seen reported here, I suppose I lucked out.
The chair would have been easy to set up, if not for aligning the backrest with the seat being so difficult. I strongly recommend that you have someone help you do this part at least, as it was very difficult for me to do alone. Luckily I have long arms and was very determined to build the chair; it took me 2 hours :/ just because of that issue. It literally may seem impossible to line up both sides it takes a lot of effort. I found 3 good videos online that demonstrate assembly; 2 of the 3 skipped the part where you line up the backrest (the other fast forwarded all their adjustments) so I know I wasn't the only one frustrated here.
All in all, I am content. I have never owned a chair of this quality and I notice the difference from my office chair I bought at Sam's Club years ago. I am 6'2" ~160lbs and I feel very comfortable. The support pillows don't feel like they are in the way like I worried. I can sit criss-cross in the chair, even with my long legs. If the chair came with no noticeable deformities, this would have been a 5 star buy for me.

I am sorry the chair has some creases, they should smooth out in a week or so. If you can monitor the situation and reach out to Service@AKRacing.com if there is no change.

Mine luckily came without any damage. This chair is so nice, so much more spacious and comfortable than my last chair. As a large guy, right around 300 lbs, I can say that this is really accommodating for my size and even at 6'1" my feet barely sit flat on the floor when sitting normally. Hope everyone else gets theirs in good a condition as mine and sorry to anyone who isn't as lucky.
Mine came a little damaged...
Is it possible to get another cover?

Sorry to hear of this, I have responded to your ticket and am sending you replacements.

No biggie thank you for taking the time to reply. I’m looking forward to getting those pieces.
Nearly had a heart attack when i got the tracking number and in the summary of the fedex order it said 1 piece when i ordered 2. a couple of hours later i received shipping for the second chair. so fyi if you bought more than one they're not shipped as one order.
How long does it take to ship out the order? Just curious.

my two orders apparently got shipped out on the 28th of february and will get here on the 6th so not bad at all. and that's from CA to VA.
Feralghoul
My tracking code was sent to me yesterday and thats the day the chair arrived it was great :D
Yay. Now that I bought one, it's time to wait impatiently... anyone else?
How is the ventilation while using this chair?
Is it comfortable for long sessions or does it get hot?
StymiedSloth
The chair is very comfortable especially for long periods. I have not experienced the chair getting hot/sticky and I am sat in one for the majority of the day.
I’m torn between the PROX and the Nitro chairs. I’m 5’9” 200LBS. I like the look of the PROX better but people who are 5’11” are saying that the PROX is too big for them. Which should I get?
Load 2 more comments
I sat on some big and tall chairs at Staples with relatively the same measurements and they were fine so I went with the PROX. Worst comes to worst I can re sell it.
CHebenstreich
CHebenstreich, if it is too big, get something like a coccyx cushion. My mate had an issue with his maxnomic chair being too big for him, and that solved the issue straight out.
5'5 150 lbs, too short for this chair?
2 days left!
IGotQuestions
Yes, 5'5'' is too short for this chair.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thanks! I guess I'll wait for the premium or get the octane.
Hi just joined Massdrop and I "joined" this drop... Do I just wait for the shipment now? Or what do I need to do? Also if anyone can give feedback on how the chair is or if it should be ok for me that'd be great. I'm 6'2 300lbs, like NFL or college football offensive lineman build. Thanks.
JLofa
Chair will fit you very well! It's am awesome chair. If you joined the drop, your good. Nothing more to do.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thanks for the information.
I'm trying to buy a chair for my boyfriend as a graduation gift but I don't know ANYTHING about these chairs; a friend of his recommended this site. Would this be a good chair for a 6'3" 220lbs man or is it too wide? I appreciate any input because I'm out of my depth...

I am 6'4'' and 215lbs and love this chair!
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Perfect! Thank you.
Another fit question: 5'9" and 210 pounds. Would this be the right chair to get?
dcpDarkMatter
Yes that would work for you. You can check out the dimensions here: https://www.akracing.com/product/akracing-prox-gaming-chair-grey/
AKRacingService
Great, thanks! Ordered the white one.
quick question. i'm 6'1 245lb. would this chair be a good fit?
takoyakighoul
yep, its built for you!
Howdy Everyone,
We are offering a never seen before price on this drop. AKRacing is blowing out the remaining inventory on these 2017 models. The MSRP for this chair is $549.99 and Massdrop generally sells this chair for $349.99. That being said a $249.99 price on this chair is unheard of! Grab them while you can.
Cheers.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
I've been looking for a chair for a while and almost got a different chair from a drop a week or two ago and decided to wait. I'm glad I did and saw this amazing deal. I'm super excited to receive and try it. It's my first foray into a gaming chair and will hopefully make a great addition to my new PC.
Arigateaux
I love this chair! I have two chairs here in the office that I use. The AKRacing PROX & ONYX. They both are awesome! You will love it. Especially at this price!
I received my chair a couple days ago. It was fairly easy to put together. Maybe took 30 minutes at most. I‘m happy with the quality of the chair so far. Just wish it came with rims on the rolling wheels lol

When can we expect them on our door step?
RSparrow
Just got my shipping notification for Wednesday, 2018-01-24 delivery. I like in MD and its coming from Cali.
I have this chair for home, and I also have the AKRacing Premium V2 at the office, both in Black. I'm 240lbs. at 5'11". I love both chairs and would buy again and recommend. I had a DXracer for years and I feel this is not only a more comfortable brand, but also feels higher quality. But I am selling my ProX chair to a coworker b/c I feel it is too big for me and I want another Premium V2 and I am waiting for that to drop again before I part ways with my ProX. Just wanted to leave my experience in case it helps other "on the fence" folks, or people wondering if this is a good fit for their body type.

Ah didn't realize the V2 had a 37 inch backrest - got it mixed up with the regular "Pro" series then.
fufanu
all good i was wrong as well, apparently V2 is actually 36.6 inches ....idk anymore lol
If it was real leather I would jump on this chair. Having a retail price of $549 I would think it would. They do make 1 chair with top grain leather for $699, which is $150 more than this chairs retail price. I would pay ($319 + $150) $469 for this chair if it was made with real leather. Just in case you were curious what PU Leather is, this is what Wikipedia has to say:
Bicast leather (also known as bycast leather, split leather or PU leather) is a split leather with a layer of polyurethane applied to the surface and then embossed. Bycast was originally made for the shoe industry and recently was adopted by the furniture industry. The resulting product is cheaper than top grain leather and has an artificially consistent texture that is easier to clean and maintain. The use of the term "leather" in relation to this bicast treatment is considered a misrepresentation and therefore not permitted in the United Kingdom and New Zealand [1] Furniture made with bicast exhibits none of the characteristics associated with genuine leather; it will not develop a patina or suppleness nor otherwise "improve with age". With constant use the polyurethane layer will crack and split free of its backing.[2][3] Here's the part that bothered me >
Modern technology permits up to three or four horizontal layers being taken from the one hide. The leather used in the backing of bicast is a thin, otherwise > WORTHLESS<, layer remaining after better quality layers have been removed for traditional leather work[citation needed] and contributes nothing to the look and feel of the end product.
I bought this chair based on comments and recommendations, specifically those of @Michael_AKRacingAmerica and @B.Hutch that suggested my 6'2", 220 lbs would be most comfortable in this chair vs. the Premium. I purchased a gaming chair with side bolsters expecting them to ACTUALLY BOLSTER SOMETHING. My legs don't touch, my sides don't touch, I might as well be sitting in a normal office chair. If you have any doubts at all if this chair might be too big for you, learn from my mistake and have someone actually measure your body and compare that to the chair measurements. If I could do it over again, I would absolutely have chosen the smaller chair.
Aemergin
I'm considering buying this for my boyfriend and he has very similar height and weight proportions to you, but he has a thick build. Were you not even close to fitting this chair?
KaylaRose
It is too big in the seat - I do not benefit from the seat bolsters at all. It is also too big in the back - again, the bolsters are useless as I don't even feel them on either side. The only thing that feels right is the height of the seat back but from what I understand, the smaller chairs also have the same height for the seat back.
Hello Everyone, Just a friendly update/reminder from our end. We are prepping all Pro X now and will be shipping them out before the end of the week. I'll will update this comment again when everything ships out.
thanks Michael @AKRacing

How does this compare to the ex-wide chair?
fufanu
The Pro X has alot more foam on it than the ExWide chair. It has a different shape back and seat all together.
I ordered the wrong color! Can someone PLEASE HELP ME? I am so mad at myself right now! I did send a support inquiry.

Michael,
I got it - I'm working on putting everything together so I can explain everything correctly. Thank you.
astrocity
you are welcome and i'm glad to lend a hand to help resolve this issue your experiencing.
I'm confused, is this chair for someone big or small? The AKracing website is absurdly disorganized with a terrible interface. The other chairs have minimum height of 17+ inches! That's way too tall for short people. This one has minimum height of 13".
What is the top of the line chair by AKRacing meant for smaller people (5'7 150lbs)? Preferrably with the 4D armrests and in black.
Another_Overpriced_Drop
Hi, yes, we inherited our website from our Europe team and, frankly, they did a horrible job and we have slowly worked to improve but it still has a long way to go. Guilty as charged :) This is a big and tall chair. But it uses a different gas lift that sets the height a little different. I would suggest that you would be happiest with our Premium series, it has a minimum seat height of around 14". It will be very comfortable for you. In Japan, where as you may know people in general are more petite in both height and especially weight than in the US, they actually position the Premium series as the top-of-the-line over the Pro-X. It will come back around on another drop before the holiday break, I believe.
AKRacingAmerica
Any chance of getting a different gaslift for this chair? I have the Pro X and am interested in different height options as I'd hate to have to buy the ex-wide one too. Speaking of which - how much smaller is the ex-wide compared to this one?
If you need web help, I'd be glad to offer my services as well. Just throwing it out there, heh.
Which shipping company are you using? Will I have to sign for the delivery? Thanks!
musikman53
We ship with Fed Ex. No Sig Required for delivery.
Hi everyone!
Does this chair seat tilt? I'm used to seeing that in the description and have found conflicting information.
I am 6' 2", 260lbs. Was this chair made for me?
Thanks!

The mechanism on PRO X is standard. it's not a Lock & Rock function like Onyx or MAX. It's the same mechanism as we have on our current V2 Premium. However it does allow for rocking motion. You must unlock it and then un-tighten the tension spring to allow for rocking motion. let me know if you have any other Q's.
Michael_
That's what I needed to know! Thank you for clarifying!
When the Premium comes back around, could we get the carbon black as a color option?
Two questions...
1. I am 6'3" 175lbs . Will this chair be a good fit for me? 2. Does the 5-year warranty include peeling PU upholstery?
Diver.Down
Hi, this chair will probably be pretty roomy for you. If you like that it will be fine. Otherwise I might suggest for you to wait for perhaps our Premium line chairs to come back around again. We use the highest grade of PU so there should not be any peeling, which is a symptom of low grade PU. But, yes, it would be covered unless there was signs of mistreatment.
AKRacingAmerica
Thank you for your reply and advice. I really wanted to take advantage of the Black Friday special pricing. What lines of chair would you recommend? I thought the ProX would be the top-of-the-line model. I also see a 'Massdrop Exclusive' Aero Gaming Chair is available. Would this chair be a better fit for someone my size? Are the materials of the same/lower/higher quality, compared to the ProX?
Hey, I'm new to this, but here is my 2 cents. This chair seems to be designed more for the "big and tall" crowd. The chair base (seat) is 2.5 inches wider (17.7 vs 15.3) and 2.5 inches longer (23.6 vs 21.2) than their standard chair such as the Nitro or Prime series. I'm sure it still falls to preference, but if your less than 6 foot and under say, 200 lbs, this chair will probably be roomy for you. My current chair, not this brand, has the roughly smaller dimensions.
So far, all the premium chairs dropped recently have been the these larger style chairs. I know the Overture just ended, but it didn't quite have all the features or the color option I was looking for. I'm hoping Massdrop will drop one of the "nicer" chairs that has the standard chair dimensions, such as the Premium, which is basically the standard sized version of this chair for people like myself. 5' 10" 180 lbs. I created a poll for it, with 3 different options of "normal sized" chairs. Hopefully they can get it for under $300, since this chair is $550 and they were able to get it for $299.

You are correct about the fact that this chair is for the "big and tall" crowd. Someone your size range should only choose this chair if they want it to be very roomy. And I see that @B.Hutch has already mentioned that the other chairs will come around again.
AKRacingAmerica
Without a doubt, I am going to get one of these chairs. I am looking for a model with the 3D or 4D armrests, and maybe also include the Rock It & Lock It function. Could you explain what that feature actually does? Thanks.
