Hi Everyone,
The Massdrop x AKRacing Aero Gaming Chairs have arrived at the warehouse and the team is wrapping up quality control checks. The chairs are starting to ship and we expect all orders to leave the warehouse by tomorrow (March 20).
Thank you all for your patience with this drop and the delay. We're looking forward to everyone receiving the Aero Gaming Chair!

Hi Everyone,

We have an update on the Aero Gaming Chairs. Unfortunately the chairs did not arrive at the warehouse today and therefore we will not meet our estimated ship date of March 16.

Our logistics team informed us that the chairs got held up at the port and are now expected to arrive next week. We apologize for this additional delay and we are working with the warehouse to prioritize this shipment as soon as it arrives. We have also added a $10 coupon to your account, which will be automatically applied to the next drop you join.

We know you’re likely just as disappointed as we are, and we’re very sorry for the additional delay. We’ll provide an update on Monday (Mar. 19) with the status of the shipment.

Hi Everyone,
I have an update on the Massdrop x AKRacing Aero Gaming Chairs. The chairs are still in transit to our warehouse and they are expected to arrive tomorrow afternoon. We wanted to give everyone a heads up that the timeline will be tight, and we’ll be cutting it close for all units to ship on March 16.
The chairs experienced a delay in transit and they are now arriving at our warehouse later than initially expected. We are still aiming to have all units ship on March 16, and we’re working with the warehouse to prioritize this.
We apologize for this potential slight delay, and we’ll provide an update at the end of the day tomorrow (March 15) with the latest information.

Hi Everyone,
We have an update on the Massdrop x AKRacing Aero Gaming Chair. Unfortunately there was a delay in production, and the chairs are now being prepared for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. Given the delay we now expect the chairs to arrive in mid March. Once they arrive at our warehouse they will go through the receiving and quality control check process. If all goes well in these stages we expect to ship the chairs by March 16.
We know you’re likely just as disappointed as we are, and we’re sorry for the additional delay. We’re doing what we can to get a final, quality gaming chair your way as quickly as possible. If you prefer to cancel your order please reach out to our Community Support team via the transactions tab (https://www.massdrop.com/transactions).
We’ll provide an update on March 14 with the current status.

Appreciate all of the communication you've been putting out for the drop - it's super appreciated. Now to attempt to forget that this is coming so I don't anxiously wait for tracking info...
They fell behind and their QC must be pretty thorough . I just bought some of those "trackers" from AMAZON and outta 50, 2 worked. It is frustrating BUT.... look at the bright side. They saved you days of headaches, a ship back and wait for a another. Honesty rings good to me "we fucked up" .. THANK YOU and clean up the ship.
I have 28“ of clearance underneath my desk. Will this chair slide underneath when the armrests and seat are in their lowest position?
This chair vs secretlabs titan? I’m 6’1 240lbs
I was reading the past comments that the chair did not have the tilt lock feature. It was an error on Akracings side on its description.

Can anyone confirm that the current drop will have this feature?
Are the arm rests removable?
Which AKracing chair is about the same size as this one? I have a microcenter (Mi) an hour and a half away from me that has regular AKracing chairs I can try out. I really want to get in on this drop but I do not want to get stuck with a $300 chair that isn't comfortable. I am at a desk 9 to 10 hours a day marking up drawings or on a computer. I am really oddly proportioned. I am 6'1 but I have short legs ( wear a 30" in length for pants). If my feet dangle I will just get a foot stool, just need something to provide good back support.
Is it possible to order more pillows like those used on these chairs?
how do I use the tile lock? I locked it in an bad angle and don't know how to fix it.
Gah! I missed the drop because it was ran the week between my paychecks and I had some bills to pay this month, I hope this comes back soon haha
Will this chair work for bigger people? I am 6' tall and have a pretty large build.

hey man, i own this exact chair. Im 6"1 and am pretty hefty. the chair supports me fine and is definately tall enough. The only issue i have with it is the recline / tilt function makes me super nervous that the chair wont be able to support my weight and il flip. I guess thats only a problem if you plan on lying horizontal on the chair
Dhairis
I don't really worry about the recline/tilt... I don't really plan on using the feature. Thanks for the response!
I’m debating between this and the Premium V2. The other one looks to be a bit small for me (6’ 2”, 290lbs) but this one looks like the seat is wider and the chair has a higher weight limit. Would this one be a good fit for me?
bmbaeb
Yes, the weight limit of this chair is 20lbs more than the Premium as well as the seat of the Aero being 6.9" wider than the Premium model due to the flat seat.
This or Noble Epic...
I'm beyond excited for this chair to get here. It feels like Christmas is right around the corner waiting for it to arrive. This will be my first truly nice chair as I've been using a 100$ chair from office depot and I'm shocked its lasted this long.
However, I am sort of nervous it may not be as comfortable/fit me as well as I believe it to be. Is there any sort of return policy for this or is it a one and done type situation?
Lastly, I see it says at the top of the product listing that the drop will open and close daily and charge accounts within two hours of joining the drop and chairs will ship in waves every two-three days? It would appear I have yet to be charged for the drop yet... Is that normal? I've never seen drops done this way before but I'm excited to get my hands on this ASAP.
does this have a tile lock option the last one didn't
Do the wheels that come with the chair scratch up wood floors?

I got this in the last drop- And yes, the wheels can wear on wood floors.

However, I have yet to see a chair that doesn't wear on wood floors. I have a small clear mat that I put underneath
