We now know the real reason Kyle agreed to getting a red stripe in his hair; so he can match the chair he is sitting in. He has been resting his laurels on the Vertagear Triigger 350 Special Edition for the past few months and has published a review of his experiences. This 55lb beast is constructed of aluminium, mesh and calf leather with hubless caster type wheels which turned out to work and look good. If you are in the market for a high end gaming chair you should check out the full review, especially the last page where he answers numerous questions asked by his forum members.
"What happens when you rope yourself in to doing a gaming chair review? You take your time, do it right, and make sure your butt spends at least a few months in the chair before you write your review. My butt has been in the VertaGear Triigger 350 Gaming Chair for over 3 months, and here are my thoughts."

Corsair have jumped into the gaming chair market, a product we did not see much of which has recently taken off in a big way. The T1 RACE is made of PU leather, also known as bicast leather, so the shiny finish should last quite a while though the feel will not quite the same as a true leather chair, nor will the price be as astronomical. Depending on the type of polyurethane leather they used, this product might be vegan. You can choose between yellow, white, blue or red trim to highlight your chair, or if you prefer you can choose to forego the colours for a purely black chair. It can recline 90° to 180° if you need a moment to lie back, the arm rests can be adjusted for height, width, position and angle and neck and lumbar PU leather pillows are included.
Check out Corsair's page here or the PR just below.
FREMONT, CA – May 16th, 2017 - CORSAIR®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the launch of its first gaming chair, the T1 RACE. Inspired by racing, crafted for comfort and built to last, the T1 Race joins CORSAIR’s award-winning range of mice, keyboards, headsets and mousepads to complete the ultimate gaming experience. Built using a solid steel skeleton and dense foam cushions, the T1 RACE has the strength to ensure a lifetime of sturdiness, while it’s 4D-movement armrests raise, lower, shift and swivel to put gamers in the most comfortable position every time. Styled to turn heads and finished with immaculate attention to detail, the T1 RACE is the gaming chair your desk deserves.
Upholstered in luxurious PU leather on seating surfaces and available in five different colors, T1 RACE lets you choose your seat to match your style, in either Yellow, White, Blue, Red or Black trim, finished with automotive color-matched stitching and base accents. Nylon caster wheels, often an optional upgrade on office and gaming chairs, are included with T1 RACE as standard, ensuring stability and smooth movement on any surface.
T1 RACE’s sculpted race-seat design and included neck and lumbar PU leather pillows provide adjustable support for day-long gaming sessions, while its 4D-moment armrests effortlessly adjust in height, width, position and angle to put your arms precisely where they need to be. A steel construction Class 4 gas lift provides reliable height adjustment, while the seat itself tilts up to 10° and can recline anywhere between 90° to 180°, lying completely flat for when you need to take a break from the action. Finishing the T1 RACE’s attention to detail, the CORSAIR logo is tastefully embroidered into the rear of the chair, and lightly embossed into the headrest for maximum comfort.

I will be the first to admit that just a couple of weeks ago I had zero need for a gaming chair. But when 4GamerGear.com offered to send us one of the AKracing AK-6014 ergonomic executive units, I agreed. I went out of town for a week and returned to find the chair assembled and already in use by Ken, our go to video editor and engineer. Of course I had to steal it from him to take part in the "review" process and the results were great! As I sit here now in my Ikea office chair, writing up this post, while Ken sits just feet away tapping away on some edits, I can't help but want to use my authority to take it back.
The price is steep, but the added comfort you get from a chair like the AKracing model we tested is substantial. Every part of the design, based on a racing seat for a car, is built to keep you in place. But instead of preventing lateral movements caused from taking corners, this is more to keep your butt in place and your back straight to encourage good posture. The arm rests are height adjustable (as is the seat itself of course) and the back reclines for different desk and resting positions. You can lay it PAST flat for naps if you're into that kind of thing.
You can find these chairs for sale on Amazon in different color combinations with a current price of $349. It's expensive, I can't deny that. But it looks and feels way cooler than what you are sitting in right now. And aren't you worth it?

A few years back Ryan reviewed the Nerdytec COUCHMASTER, even longer ago The Tech Report played with the SumoSac and there are still ButtKickers out there for sale. Now you can pick up the brightly coloured AKRACING AK-6011 Gaming Chair which is style after the bucket seats found in many sports cars. Neoseeker picked one up and assembled it to see just how comfortable it and the two included pillows actually are. After two months of usage they are quite happy with the comfort and sturdy design of the chair, so if you really want to make a statement you can pick one up from Amazon, there are different colour schemes available if the only thing that you find odd about this product is the shade of green they used.
"While we aren't strangers to reviewing gaming peripherals, we haven't yet had the chance to take one of AKRACING's premium gaming chairs for a spin. The brand might ring a bell for readers familiar with eSports. Modeled after the seats used in race cars, AKRACING looks to blend fast lane sensibilities with the ergonomic features that users come to expect from any comfortable chair. On our review today is the AKRACING AK-6011 in a two-tone black and green color scheme with two extra pillows to better customize proper sitting posture. See what over $300 for a chair ought to get you."
