Are these coming back in stock? I was seriously just about to pull the trigger on one and they went OOS. Also does this chair actually have tilt angle lock? Its prominently advertised in the overview and specs yet I've seen at least twice stated in comments that it does not have it?

YEah ... But can it do this?
eightmag
It can but I fall when I do it so if you want to actually do it buy the actual pewdiepie chair
Can’t wait to get my chair
What's the frame made of? If it's not some type of metal I would pass on it. Hopefully it's not some type of plastic.

Kinda torn between this and the max/pro. I'm 6'2 about 220lbs. Which would be the right fit?
richard.le
They are all great chairs and will suit you well. I am 6'4 and 210lbs. I have sat in all 3 of these chairs and they work well for me. I am comfortable in all of them. The Max will have a wider seat than the Aero and the Pro will have a longer seat than either of these. If you have a 33-34" inseam then you will most likely be more comfortable in the PRO. Otherwise I would suggest going with the Aero or MAX.
I want this but I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada :/

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.
Just got my Aero a few days ago. Ordered on a Wednesday evening, arrived Friday mid day which I did not expect, so great start. Assembly was super easy. Directions were okay but its not hard to figure out how to assemble without if need be. Probably took 20 minutes. Everything you need is in the box. Hex wrenches that come with it are good quality. I used a power drill with hex bits to speed things up but is not necessary. Neck pillow is great. Don't have too much need for the lumbar pillow but I will try it again in the future. A tad more height adjustment would be nice for some but this works great for my setup. Chair shape is good for long sessions when sitting. Foam is stiff but ultra supportive. Alcantara is a super nice touch for the Massdrop specific model. The material is difficult to slide down in so you stay put for longer without you sliding in to a bad position. The base could be 2-3 inches wider as the chair wants to tip a bit in you pull yourself forward on a surface that is super easy to slide on. Bigger urethane casters might fix this? All in all this is a great chair and well worth the price in my opinion.

Thank you for actually putting in shipping time for your chair. Bless your soul.
Love the chair but the armrests are really shaky and unstable (in the directions they are meant to be adjusted). Some reviewers have described the armrests as being too easy to manipulate and I agree. That they have too much play in them is a side effect I think. Is it possible to tighten them?
Everytime i go 180 degrees back I mostly fall I recommend that you hvae somewhere to put ur feet other than the floor because this chair is meant for racing. I was given the wrong instructions sheet. The bottom part where the pump connects is weird idk if I did it right. The chair looks hawt tho
First off, this chair is wide and comfortable. I'm 5'10" @ 180lbs. What comfort. Having said that...the height of the chair is just way too high - I measured it and it was floating around 19". I swapped the wheels from my old chair and it dropped the height about half an inch, but still too high for my desk to sit comfortably. Just ordered some desk risers on Amazon to raise my desk 2". It should work fine after the risers are installed and put the height where I was originally expecting it to be. Sort of lame that I have to spend extra money due to some error with the specs. I mean, all we have to go off is the spec sheet and comments. I may not buy another drop from now on due to not having faith in the posted spec sheets.
So how do we get replacement parts under warranty? I have a couple of busted cosmetic pieces (due to improper assembly at the factory). I have the packing slip and my Massdrop order #, is that enough information? Thanks.
dose this work on mac pls thank you

Has anyone experienced the material growing extremely warm and/or uncomfortable for long periods of use? I have never seen this material before and am curious about the thermals. Another question: would this seat be comfortable for people who wear shorts all the time (like I do)? I really love this chair, just need to find out some things about the chair because it is only available online. I can get extremely uncomfortable if my chair starts getting warm (I do prefer cooler temperatures), and this is very important factor in chairs in my opinion. Thanks!
This chair looks amazing! If I order this chair and it does not work for me, what are the return options? Is this chair able to be returned? How much is return shipping or is it free?
Is this seat comfortable for a person who sit cross legged?
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?

Let me know if you figure something out. For now I'm using no casters.

I see them on Amazon just search office chair wheel but my issue now is the wheels are so loose and I can't lean back with out the chair moving back too so I think I'm gonna either get a thick rug to put under me or I'm gonna take the wheels off and buy some studs but really debating that
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.
