Where's the price?

No brown color available? Keep waiting for a drop with that option, is it happening or should I move on to something else?
Alright I'm sick of these "gaming" chairs popping up everywhere. I am a physiotherapist, and I'm telling you without any shadow of a doubt, if you care about your back, and you're gonna drop a heavy buck on a chair (as you should, if you're already sitting hours in front of the computer, better be with a normal posture), please, PLEASE - Get a good, ergonomic one. Drop the "gaming" thing. Your spine doesn't care about gaming, it cares to have support because we can't hold our muscles upright and neutral for so long. Not saying that some chairs are a cause for pain, but sitting for long hours is, and if one can improve it by just a little, he should. Just my two cents.

Fair enough. So this chair may in fact work for some- the issue being you can't try it out. Got it. I need to go test drive chairs!
Alright I’m sick and tired of these “physiotherapists” popping up everywhere a new gaming chair drops preaching what 99% of knowledgeable and educated people already know. These so called “ physiotherapist “ can’t refrain from throwing their own righteous remarks rehashing what we as consumers have known for years. Dude, we just want a cool looking chair to match our cool looking setup. Who cares if I’m walking with a cane after using this super awesome looking chair with my dope gaming set-up in 10 years! /sarcasm
Just received the chair! Feels comfortable with good quality. The neck pillow and pad are little bit stiff, maybe the manufacture could change something softer.
Are you shipping to the UK at all?
I'm about average height (~5'10") but very skinny, and a lot of the reviews say that this is a chair meant for people of larger stature and that anyone shorter than ~6' will be uncomfortable. Some help would be appreciated!
I have the same build as you and was hoping to know.
I think you would be better to go with one of our Ferrino model chairs. The Carbon is a pretty good size chair. Luck for you, Ferrino is also running on Massdrop right now but it ends today. Thanks! Chris
too bad about the color choices.
What color did you want? We are running 4 or the 5 available colors. Thanks!
how much was this chair when the drop was active?
Its back at the same price $199.99
How comfortable is this chair for women... my wife would spend about as much time on it as I would. Men and women are not built the same, of course, but just wondering if anyone with big hips has tried one of these. My wife's not fat, but she's not skinny and around a size 16 depending on the brand. I've seen a lot of discussion about how it fits men, but the wife factor is an important one! Thanks!
It is not as wide in the sitting area as some chairs so if that could be an issue take into consideration. The lumbar and neck pillows can be moved to fit along with everything else so that kind of stuff wont be an issue. So if Baby got back this might not be the type of chair for her but other then that its a quality build and their top of the line. proud owner.
is this as comfortable and same quality as high end chair like dxracer?
yep I think more so in the arm rest area specifically
I got interested to see this show up because I like a wider/bigger chair so I didn't commit on the ferrino last week. Now reading the discussion it sounds like I probably should buy a smaller chair since this one has a minimum height significantly taller than most chairs, is that correct? I am only 5'9 160 and my wife who will use it as well is smaller than me. Any word on the ferrino coming back soon?
why is there no option for brown on black? If it was included on the product page it should be an option for purchase.
Sorry about that but there is no stock available right now on the brown version. We have available models listed in 2 places on the drop. The note section at the top of the drop description page as well as the gallery of images at the bottom of the page. Hopefully it will be available next time around.
Got one a few drops back and love it for work. this chair is great for comfort and for taking a nap just don't get caught by the boss.
Hmm, wasn't this drop a bit cheaper a few weeks ago (before it was cancelled)? I remember my order being cancelled, but I am sure it was lower than the commit price. No worries, I wound up buying the finish line, but I think it's a bit small so I wanted to check back on the Carbon when it became available again.
Possibly, but that price difference does not really bother me. I was going to join the last one, and was upset it was cancelled. Glad it is back.
Massdrop Community- I apologize for this drop being shut down. We will be running this product again in the future, but not sure of an exact date. Thanks for supporting our products and we look forward to future drops! By the way, we do still have our other line, the Finish Line, dropping right now. Thanks! Chris

That's fair. If they both come with cushions, then I will give the Finish Line a shot. Thanks for the reply Chris!
I saw this drop the other day and was excited to join when I got off work only to find it canceled :( my birthday buns will have to wait until next time I guess 😭
Hi All!
Unfortunately we had to shut this drop down because the vendor will not be able to fulfill it with the current inventory he has on hand.
This should have been communicated to you earlier and we apologize for the delay.
We do have confirmation that this drop will be available in the future so request it and you will be notified once it becomes available.
Hey - how about sending us (people who had signed up to get this item) an email to tell us about this?? I only found out by looking it up. Poor form Massdrop.
Did this drop shut down or end before I even got my email for it today? That seems a little ridicululous...
Yeah i'm with you... when was this?
If only it was shipping to Montreal Canada :(
Daaaang I like these better than the Ferrinos. I should have waited. Oh well, still love the build quality and comfort of the Ferrino, these are just prettier.
Any word on if these might ship early?

Awesome thanks, i hope mine is home when i get there, I live in CA and i think they ship from here too, fingers crossed
Hoping mine shipped but if they ship from CA I got atleast a week until it gets to Philly
How would I fit in this chair at 5'9" and 190lbs? :o

Thanks Chris. Are you talking about the new drop for the Ferrino line?
Yes...the regular size (not XL) would be perfect for you. Thanks! Chris
not a gammer but a shift worker that spends 12 hours a day in a chair I hope this thing is comfortable for just mostly messing with my phone and watching tv
I have a gaming seat at my office for work, and one at home. They say 'gaming', they mean 'all around comfort for spending at least 70+ hrs a week at the computer', and flash the gaming thing to make teens want it more.
Do some research and find a worthwhile chair that isn't that expensive, and you could even see if your work would cover it for ergonomics (make sure it's in the standard black/black, HR is less than inclined on purchasing a colorful chair)

Anybody have the Blue/Grey version of the Carbon Line? Curious to know how it looks in person?

Only the Charcoal/Grey come with cushion
Hi MakingBacon, All colors come with the cushions. Thanks!
Just purchased it, lets see how it goes! :)
Howdy Everyone,
Due to the short promotion that RapidX was doing on their site I was able to get a much better cost than previously. Thank you to those members who spoke about the promotion here in the discussion. There are new drop prices in place where we are beating RapidX's best promo price.

Mine is still in transit, but the reviews seem to compare them often
That is exactly how I felt. I just happened to see the drop this afternoon and figured I should let people know.
Received my chair today. It was missing the two loose screws and the allen wrenches.
I was able to contact RapidX and they were really responsive. They are shipping me the missing items.
I bought this off Amazon. As others state, this thing is almost unusable by normal height people. I'm 6' and the lowest setting is WAY too high. Several inches higher than my old chair. The armrests also don't go low enough. They hit my desk. The arms can maybe be lowered some by adding spacers and longer bolts to the bottom of the seat. As for height, I kind of fixed it, or at least tolerable, by using these smaller diameter wheels off amazon. The new wheels actually roll better and the blue color matches by blue/grey color scheme. Much better.

Received chair on Friday the 16th. Way earlier than expected. Build quality at this price point is great. Everything seems well put together. Like a previous reviewer, the lowest setting is barely useable without shoes on. with shoes the seat is comfortable but the arm rest could go up higher. Usually the problem i have is chairs not going high enough and arms going low enough. I am 5' 10" high with a longer upper torso. From the floor to the top of the seat it is 19.5". Fully extended the armrest is 13.5" from the base of the seat to highest setting. Lowest setting is 11". The seat back only goes back to 155 degree setting. I did not feel like i was going to fall over when reclining. Some chairs it feels like you will fall. The armrests can rotate left and right about 30 degrees.They slide back and forth also. With the armrest all the way back it sticks 1 3/4" out from the front edge of the arm support. Fully extended it is 4". This should be in the description of the chair somewhere as most of their competitors are throwing around phrases like 4D armrests. The wheels on this are about 3" across. A slightly smaller wheel offering could help with the height issue. Box was well packaged. Overall I would buy again.

Overall seems good build quality, however I have one glaring design issue. The damn thing is TOO TALL even in the lowest setting. Yes, I have it fully seated in the base. I'm 6' and I can feel the pressure under my legs and comparing the seat level to my old chair is several inches higher. What gives with that? No way this will be comfortable over long sessions, heck it was annoying after 30 seconds.
