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.
How do you guys use a footrest and lean back with out rolling back =(( need to find some locking wheels or I'm gonna wrap felt around all the wheels and get a rug?
Just put mine together, not bad for 280$ great quality some thing are not solid but it's in spots I would expect that to be and not In a way where I find that to be a weak point that would break. But man they weren't kidding about these being very tall even on the lowest setting I'm 6'2 and worried my thigh will get tingly if I sit a certain way I usually find comfortable. I'm gonna a maybe look for some kind of short peg legs and put some anti-scratch felt tips on them to try and lower it and 1"-1 1/2" other than that everything is nice. Makes me wonder how the secret lab chairs now EDIT: wow now I understand why they sell the foot rests after using it for a couple hours I can see now that the foot rest would be absolutely perfect
No shipping to Canada on any of these chairs makes me sad :(
Do these chairs contain added flame retardants?
What's the difference between this, and the other AKRacing gaming chairs? Thanks!
Kjden
I've owned an Overture series chair before this. The differences that I've noticed are:
The aero can lock the seat base at a range of tilt angles but the overture can only lock upright.
Both chairs list "55kg/m^2" for foam density, but the aero feels significantly softer, IMO.
Most AKRacing chairs I've seen use almost exclusively PU leather as their material, but the aero is mostly alcantara (a significant improvement in comfort, IMO)
The aero has a flater seat while almost all other AKRacing chairs I've seen have very high sides with a steel bar that make crossing legs or sitting anywhere but dead center almost impossible.
The aero is also rather high. I'm a little over 6 feet, but am most comfortable sitting close to the lowest seat elevation. (Shorter pistons can be bought elsewhere, like amazon)
That's all I can remember for sure off the top of my head. Sorry for making the post so long, but hope I helped!
@AKRacingAmerica I am considering the Aero and I think I would be happy with it, but I would rather get the Onyx. Will that be coming back to Massdrop soon?
bcabes
Hi. Yes, it will. I don't know the precise schedule but Massdrop will continue to feature our standard product line throughout the next few months. So you should see it soon.
AKRacingAmerica
Can you confirm the seat height on this? My actual product is about 2 inches taller in the min/max than the drop states. I have thought about buying replacement short wheels for it, since I am 6' and can barely touch the floor in it with the minim height.
Is this chair big enough for 6'7 300lbs person?
mgobec
Hello brother! I'm 6'7 280, wish that there was someone my size asking these questions when I was purchasing a chair. With regards to weight, the chair is an absolute tank, I wouldn't worry about it at all.
Unfortunately I went with the drop previous to this one, https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-premium-v2-gaming-chair. It's fucking awful, and I'll tell you why. The seat width is 15 fucking inches, it's absurdly tight because of the "racer" cupping boarder whatever you call it bullshit on the sides of the chair.
The model you are looking at now doesn't have that "feature" and has a width 21.5 and no raised edges so you will be able to sit with your knees more than 4 inches apart.
TLDR, the the brand quality appears to be outstanding. And knowing that this model exists I would purchase it. At your height, anything with those edges on the seat like my model is an immediate pass. Good luck.
Is there anyway I could get this shipped to Australia?
Ether the specs are still wrong, or they sent me the wrong chair.
Whenever I see a drop for these things, I can't help wondering to myself: "just how fast are these chairs?"
This chair sits quite high for me (I like to sit a bit lower). Any suggestions to get this chair down?

I asked the last guy that too he said he didn't remember but man they are right these chairs are tall as hell I don't understand that I'm 6'2 and have to use this on the lowest setting and it's a little too tall
Alacard
Let me know if you figure something out. For now I'm using no casters.
I an considering getting this chair but am worried it will be to big for me. I am 5'6" and 160lbs. Should I look for a smaller chair or do you think this is a good fit?
famatori
For anyone witha similar body to me, I ended up getting the chair.
I enjoy the height and all the features, but the seat depth is a little too much for me. The arm rests work great though as you can slide them in towards your body. Do keep in mind though that 4D arm rests have some wiggle to them.
I have this chair, but I didn't get it on Massdrop. It's not very ergonomic, but it is definetely more comfortable than your average office chair.
I would probably save your money and get something else instead.
Hey everyone,
This is my first time using Massdrop as well my very first Gaming Chair. This past year has been an exciting dive into the world of high end pc gaming. My first mechanical keyboard, my first built PC with the help of friends, and now a chair marketed for this niche. I'm excited for its arrival, not for the aesthetic, not for the hype, but because I see potential for comfort in a reasonable price range with quality in mind.
so how long does the shipping take?
Maybe a dumb question, but just want to confirm: This "no tilt" option DOES tilt, it just doesn't lock? I tend to like rocking back and forth in my current chair, so I don't want to give that up. I don't use a tilt lock now, so this should OK, no?
anotherbobby
It tilts and tilt locks. The left side handle does it.
zanzabar
Yeah I have had it since the weekend and figured out the rocking part. I didn't even bother to play with the left handle though, so thank you for that! :)
Do this chair have a tilt lock feature? It seems in past drops there are two versions, but there is only one this time.
sktfree
I got one two weeks ago and it does have tilt lock, but it also has a minimum height of 2" higher than spec (19.5")
Given there is comment about this chair's minimum height being 19", much higher than the specified 17.3", can someone clarify the ACTUAL RANGE of seat height?
MayoiKurayami
I'm late to this, but it is around 19.5" to 23.5". The seat does squish a little when you sit, but not a meaning full amount. Maybe half an inch. I have a pic of the minimum height with my review.
I have 28“ of clearance underneath my desk. Will this chair slide underneath when the armrests and seat are in their lowest position?
Toaster69
If you move the arms down it might (it is 26" to the arms at all minim height,) but if you fit in the chair having the arms all the way down will be way too low. With the arms about half way and the seat height all the way down mine is just over 28"
This chair vs secretlabs titan? I’m 6’1 240lbs
Ryanmccormick21
I would recommend this chair over the secretlabs titan. The colors on this chair should be more neutral for your setup, while the titan is limited to three color options (not the best ones, in my opinion). Also, the weight capacity is higher on this chair. Honestly, it would really depend on your preferences.
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?

Thanks for your reply. That information would great to know since people are buying the chair based on its specs. I sure hope it has the 4d armrests and tilt lock feature since that is what they are stating.
19.25 as the minimum height seems to high, I'm starting to regret joining this drop. It be nice to hear from massdrop regarding this.
Eddies
You get one inch of adjustment on the arm rest in every direction, and they rotate. The base mount for that kind of arm is also normally adjustable about a half inch, but this one it is right on the base. It also does squish down a bit for the height, but it is nowhere near the 17.3" on the spec sheet.
Are the arm rests removable?
Fearwater5
Yes, you could unbolt them from the bottom without changing anything else.
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.
Keydis
Go to microcenter
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.

Specter2
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...
