DXRacer OH/IF11/NG

Super Comfortable

With a sleek racing car seat design, the DXRacer OH/IF11/NG ensures exceptional support for your entire body, especially spine. It comes with a padded headrest and lumbar cushions in matching colors to provide your back with comfy support. The lumbar cushion can help you achieve a better sitting posture and alleviate spinal pains related to slouching, scoliosis, sciatica, etc. However, if you don't need extra support, you can remove the headrest and lumbar cushions. With this uber comfortable gaming chair, you can really forget about sore back even after long gaming sessions. And thanks to 4-dimensional armrests, you can fine-tune your position as you wish. Made of superb quality polyurethane, the armrests are comfortable, soft, and well-padded.

The DXRacer OH/IF11/NG Iron series chair is somewhere between the King and Drifting series in size. Although it looks like chairs from Drifting series, it's a bit larger to accommodate users of any build. The chair is made of high-density and durable foam that stays in excellent shape even after those massive gaming sessions. The solidly welded steel frame along with the aluminium star base can support the max weight of 180kg. This DXRacer gaming chair has a full-size frame and a high-quality hydraulic unit inside. The hydraulic unit is made in Germany and exceeds all International standards. All the accessories that come with the chair have passed 72 strict quality tests. So, if you need the top-quality chair that will withstand all abuse of gaming, this DXRacer computer chair is your choice.

Review of DXRacer OH/IF11/NG Gaming Chair

Fully Customizable

The height of this chair can be adjusted to accommodate users of any height. Just toggle gently and lift quickly a specially designed handle to raise or lower the seat. Also, the angle of the backrest can be customized to almost any degree (up to 170 degrees). The option to tilt the back seat comes in very useful when, say, you want to kick back and/or watch some video. The backrest is very supportive and comfy. And thanks to the rocking function, you can set the chair at any desired position and rock.

This gaming seat uses an innovative footrest-shaped base that was designed by a team of professionals. It's the world first footrest shaped base that is stamped with a racing tire pattern.

DXRacer OH/DF61/NWR

For Extended Use

The DXRacer OH/DF61/NWR chair can help you steer your way towards victory in any drifting game. Manufactured with high-density cold cure foam padding on the seat, this chair ensures ultimate comfort even if your gaming sessions last longer than 8 hours. In contrast with Racking chairs, it has a deeper seat which makes it more suitable for extended use.

This DXRacer seat is supplied with two optional cushions for a lumbar and neck support. Both cushions are fairly thick to help you promote proper posture. However, each cushion should be attached in a different way. The lumbar support needs to be wrapped around the seat back and then clipped. You can slide it up and down to adjust the cushion to your preference. The neck support can be either pulled over the top of the chair or passed through the upper plastic gap and secured with the included clip. The thing we should point out is that this chair isn't customizable yet it offers plenty of other adjustment options, making it convenient in use. Depending on your height and build, you can change the height of the seat and armrests as well as tilt the back for a better fit. Using the handle on the right side you can adjust the tilting angle from 90 degrees to 170 degrees. This way, if you wanted, you could easily take quick naps in this chair.

The control unit that sticks out from the right side has a special handle to raise or lower the seat. And the knob on the base of the chair controls the tilt mechanism. The armrests are a bit stiff, however, that's a minor disadvantage since you're likely to spend most of the time at a mouse and a keyboard. The height of the armrests is adjustable - you just need to pull the lever up or push it down. Overall, if you'd like to play your favourite games for a prolonged time without any discomfort, this DXRacer Drifting Series Gaming Chair is a worthy purchase.

DXRacer OH/RE0/NW

Where Individuality Meets Versatility

DXRacer was always the company whose target audience has been gamers, that much should probably go without saying. But, surprisingly enough, gamers aren't a hivemind of people that share opinions on all things gaming. Quite the contrary, with video gaming exponentially growing in popularity every single year, gamers are one of the most diverse group of people out there that are only united by their love for, well, gaming. Which is precisely why the company has produced a plethora of models targeted towards a specific group of individuals, like their Tank Series, for instance, as well as an abundance of products that are more versatile in nature and could satisfy just about any gamer out there looking for a gaming desk chair, with the DXRacer OH/RE0/NW computer gaming chair being a great example of the latter.

Since we're talking about a model which biggest selling point is its versatility, the first thing that comes to mind are the types of people it will be able to accommodate. Now, what we have here, technically speaking, is a Racing Series chair, but despite that, it isn't necessarily built for the tallest people out there. Just about anyone under 185 cm weighing less than 90 kg will be able to feel comfortable sitting in this thing. Nevertheless, for the sake of the said versatility, the manufacturers made sure to implement a wider backrest that's still capable of complementing a bigger-built user, as long as we aren't talking about an NBA-sized individual.

Review of DXRacer OH/RE0/NW Gaming Chair

Race to the Top

Alright, what else is there that could help distinguish this model as a truly flexible option? Well, a cover made of PolyUrethane would be a good place to continue since, as some of you may already be aware at this point, it is essentially a look-alike leather that is incredibly resistant to abrasion, features some exceptional properties in terms of durability, and is also waterproof, which isn't an aspect to be underestimated when we're talking about a gaming chair. It is also really easy to clean, which, again, is something that any gamer will be able to appreciate since a time spent cleaning is a time better spent playing.

The base is made of aluminium, which isn't as reliable of a material as tubular steel, but it does feature the same lifetime guarantee that all the other DXRacer models come with, meaning that the company is confident in its properties in terms of strength. And, as it always is with high-end DXRacer racing series (or just about any high-end chair for that matter), the product will allow you to adjust its height as well as feature a 135-degree back angle adjustment, which is a nice little feature that will allow you to stretch your back or take a nap while you're at it. The lumbar cushion is there and so is the headrest, so you won't have to worry about your spine or your neck. What else is there? Well, the armrests are 3D adjustable as well, of course, since no high-end gaming chair will be complete without a function that will truly allow your hands to rest in the most convenient position possible.

All in all, if you don't have any particularly outlandish preferences that you could only find in some of the most specific models out there, there's really no reason not to give this ergonomic desk chair a whirl. The sort of flexibility it offers combined with the DXRacer's excellent extra features will be able to satisfy just about any gamer out there.

DXRacer GC-F11-NR-H1

The Best Value

The DXRacer Formula Series F08-NV gaming chair is one of the most popular and successful gaming chairs in the series. It's the best model for novice gamers that are average in height and weight. It's very affordable yet way more comfortable than an office chair. Made with ergonomics in mind, the chair offers plenty of customization options. Its back is pretty high to provide a full body support from your pelvis all the way to your neck, thus reducing the harmful effect of sitting for long hours at the screen of the computer. The backrest is adjustable - it offers 12 different positions and can be tilted up to 135 degrees. Therefore, you can lean back and relax whenever you need. And the detachable neck pillow and lumbar support cushion will ensure that you’ll always be comfortable. The headrest cushion can easily be attached by means of the included butterfly clip or elastic band. The lumbar support cushion should be attached using two strings that can be tightened as you wish, allowing you to slide the cushion up and down to support different parts of your spine.

This chair includes height-adjustable armrests. You can move them up or down as well as in or out. However, we would like to note that the armrests are not multi-directional and you won't be able to adjust the angle of inclination. Still, you can remove them completely if needed. The armrests are well-padded and soft.

So, if you don't spend all days gaming and need a comfortable mid-budget chair that has a lot to offer, the DXRacer F08-NV is your choice. You will definitely adopt the correct back posture from sitting straight and feel a great difference in your neck, back, glutes, especially if you have used a non-optimised chair before.

Review of DXRacer GC-F11-NR-H1 Gaming Chair

Attention to Details

This F-Series chair is offered in 3 cover choices, 2 base choices, and in 12 colour options. The reviewed model comes in black with red trims. Classic black and vibrant red accents are likely to suit the décor of any office or game room. As for the seat cover option, the reviewed chair is made of fabric. This type of material is especially great if you have pets since the fabric is more resistant to animal claws. Also, it doesn’t heat so quickly compared to PU and PVC materials. However, the fabric can absorb smoke and get stained more easily. The seat is also available in polyurethane and leather style vinyl (PVC) materials.

This racing gaming chair has a black nylon base with a matte finish that looks more classy compared to aluminium models. The base is equipped with 5 spokes and 360-degree swivel casters. The 2-inch caster rollers ensure smooth moving and leave no marks behind. They perform well on hard floors, tiles, and thin carpets, but they are rather small for use on thick carpets. Also, we would like to point out that the nylon base is not so strong as aluminium one and can hold up to 90 kg only.

The casters are made of durable PU plastic and can roll smoothly over almost all flat surfaces, including thick carpets.

The backrest can be rocked back and forth just anywhere between 90-135 degrees with a handy, multi-functional control unit. The seat is manufactured from high-density cold foam padding and is covered with strong PU leather. The filling makes the chair very comfortable for hours of extended use, while the PU material makes it very easy to maintain.

Like almost all DXRacer chairs, this one is supplied with removable headrest and lumbar cushions that can help you sit up straight and maintain a good posture. The pillows have nice, hand-done "DXRacer" and "Racing-series" logo stitchings. They are firm enough to give you proper support. Overall, this green gaming chair is attractive, stable, sturdy, and can easily support weighty individuals.

Review of DXRacer OH/RV131/NE Gaming Chair

Get Used to It

When you first sit in this racing gaming chair, you might experience some kind of discomfort, especially if you've never used dedicated gaming chairs before. It's a bit on the stiffer side, and you might need some time to "break-in" this chair. After you get used to sitting in it, you'll feel super comfortable. The DXRacer OH/RV131/NE is really strong and very well-made. It gives a perfect back and lumbar support. So, even if you suffer from backaches and muscle tension, get this gaming chair and your pains will definitely disappear after a while.

What Is a DXRacer Gaming Chair?

There's no need to state how important a system unit packed with high-tech hardware is when it comes to gaming. And just about anybody is aware that a proper gaming keyboard or an accurate mouse are capable of taking your performance to the next level. But a chair is a part of that setup that often gets underestimated and overlooked, even though it would seem obvious that a proper gaming chair can be as important in terms of reaching peak performance as a great set of peripherals. And we aren't just talking about your comfort which is vastly important if you plan on maintaining on maintaining the absolute peak of your skill for hours on end. We're also talking about all of the health concerns that may derive from using a subpar product, all of which won't be able to stand a chance against the incredibly ergonomic and thought-out designs of the DXRacer gaming chairs. So just take a look at the most popular DXRacer chairs and take your pick if you're ready to take your gaming performance to the next level.

And if you take your gaming seriously, you might want to pick up a mechanical keyboard or a Razer mouse while you're at it.

What Features to Compare

Gaming chairs from DXRacer might not necessarily look like your regular office chairs and that is partly due to the fact that you'd be hard-pressed to find the sort of design solutions they feature in an average model designed specifically for office use, they do share some of the more important aspects that we will briefly touch upon in order to help you decide which is the right product for you.

Type

There are quite a few different types of DXRacer chairs out there but the majority of them belong to one of the three categories: Racing series, DXRacer formula series, or the Classic series. Now, there aren't a whole lot of differences between the first two types except for the sort of target audience they're aiming to cover in terms of user height and weight. The formula line will be more suitable for average-sized people, while the racer series will be a perfect fit for people that occupy the higher end of the spectrum. The classic line is somewhat dissimilar to the first two because this category is usually reserved for versatile models that feature properties of a gaming chair as well as an office chair, so take that into consideration if you aren't just looking for a gaming model.

Material

As it is with virtually any other product out there, the type of material it is made of is one of the most important aspects to consider when you go looking for the right model. Any gaming desk chair should include a sturdy and reliable frame that won't be able to crack under the user's weight, a foam that is high in density in order to make sure that the customer won't feel uncomfortable after a few hours of sitting in a chair, and a reliable cover usually made of PU, PVC, or different kinds of fabric.

Extras

Finally, you should always pay attention to all of the additional features and conveniences that any DXRacer gaming chair comes equipped with. Some of these things include but aren't limited to height adjustment, angle adjustment, additional cushions, storage pockets, and different types of casters. Now, you may think that you do not care too much for some of these things, but it will be hard to go back once you get used to the kind of additional comfort all of these extra features can offer you.

Hopefully, we don't have to bring up the fact that you should also consider the dimensions given that it should be fairly obvious that you ought to look for the model that will be a suitable fit for your environment and especially given that most DXRacer gaming chairs don't differ that much in size.

Did you know?

Even though gaming chairs in general and the ones from DXRacer, in particular, have seen quite a boom in popularity over the past few years, a large number of people still tend to feel sceptical about the whole thing, and some will even go as far as to declare that all gaming chairs are simply a marketing scheme designed to trick people into buying shiny, overpriced office chairs that do not offer anything substantial in order to justify their often elevated price. And while we can't say that there's no truth whatsoever to these statements, that doesn't mean that all of the benefits of a gaming chair aren't worth those additional few bucks you may spend on them. Though we won't be able to cover all of the advantages that a gaming chair from DXRacer is capable of offering their customers, we will try to break down a few of those that we believe to be the most noteworthy.

Improved Posture

Let's face it - gamers have never had the best of postures, to begin with. But before you go blaming us for that, we'd like you to try maintaining a perfect posture next time you're facing a difficult battle that will have you both literally and figuratively on the edge of your seat throughout the entire thing. Of course, it only gets worse after years of intense gaming sessions. Setting aside the obvious health issues that come with bad posture, it is simply an unattractive feature that makes anyone look worse than they actually are. Fortunately enough, the majority of gaming chairs feature various design solutions that will help you keep your posture in check, all while making you feel comfortable and without requiring too much effort. And who said you can't have your cake and eat it too?

Blood Flow to the Legs

The majority of regular office chairs out there have those inconveniently placed edges that don't allow the blood to flow to your legs. Aside from the annoying feeling of discomfort that you get to experience every time you stand up, this can lead to a variety of leg and foot problems down the road if you're not too careful with it. On the other hand, one of the main benefits of a gaming chair from DXRacer is that all of them come equipped with edges specifically designed to get the blood flowing to your legs, making you feel much more comfortable and preventing any health-related complications at the same time.

Improved Spine Health

This should probably go without saying but one of the biggest victims of our sedentary lifestyle has always been the spine. From the feeling of pain and discomfort to plenty of potential health risks that you may experience down the road, there's simply no telling how much damage we do to our spine sitting in front of a computer screen for 10 hours a day. And while a gaming chair may not be a solution to this much more complex issue, the ones from DXRacer feature a variety of extra functions that will allow you to mitigate some of the damage. Naturally, even if you invest in the best gaming chair out there, you should still try to out for a walk every once in a while to give your spine some rest.
