Today we bring you something slightly different to our usual offerings, alongside the AK Racing Core Series LX Gaming chair, we’ve also reviewed the AK Racing Masters Series Max Gaming chair, this review will focus on the Masters Series Max Gaming chair.
AK Racing claim that their Masters Series offers a premium chair with a design geared towards taller and/or larger users, with a hand-welded frame and class-5 gas lift, which AK Racing tell us has been made specifically for their Masters Series chairs, giving true-180KG ratings (28 stone).
The material used is vegan friendly, PU leather, on top of 55KG/M3 cold-cure foam padding, all wrapped around a metal frame on top of the aluminium base, giving the chair proper strength and robustness. Backing up those materials are a 5-year warranty on the chair and a 10-year warranty on the frame.
You also receive an adjustable headrest pillow, with two mounting options, as well as the lumbar pillow with infinite adjustment up the back of the chair. 4D armrests are included as well, moving in 4 different directions to allow you optimal comfort.
The Max is available in red, white, black, blue and indigo, giving you plenty of scope to match any current desk scheme you have going on. Today we’re looking at the stealthy, all-black design. Let’s see how it’s made and whether or not it’s comfortable.
