Colour Options and Packaging

Everybody likes to put a personal touch on things, be it in your home with decorative items or furnishings, your car with alloy wheels and even your PC with LED fans, case badges and other custom hardware or modifications. Style is important, and to many, it is vital that their chosen throne matches the rest of their office or gaming setup.   

Nitro Concept's E200 comes with plenty of colour options to suit almost anyone's taste, be at a standard all-black for office use, Nvidia Green for your Geforce themed setup or red to match your traditional ROG themed hardware. In all the E200 comes in 7 different colour options, all of which are pictured below, Carbon/Black (Red highlights), All-Black, White, Green, Orange, Blue and Red.

Packaging and contents

When buying a product that is intended to deliver great price to performance, the packaging is usually the first place where manufacturers try to cut their costs, but thankfully this is not the case for the Nitro Concepts E200.  

Everything was wrapped up well in plastic bags and bubble wrap, ensuring that each component arrives in pristine condition. While the Nitro Concepts E200 does not come with the same amount of padding as some of the £400+ chairs that we have reviewed before, Nitro Concepts' packaging is more than adequate to get the job done, easily surviving the journey through land, sea and countless postal staff required to get to my doorstep.  

With the chair comes everything that you need to get started, with a clear instruction manual an Allen key to allow any users to easily assemble the chair. Below you can see pictured everything that was contained in the box with the exception of the instruction manual and the packaging materials.

This is kinda a fail, The maximum weight is only 120Kgs IMO it should be up towards 180Kgs.Quote

Well the safety class 4 gas lift used is good for 180KG, so it would likely be able to hold that load.

120KG is a lot of mass, almost 19 stone and that is just the mass of the user that the chair supports.Quote

Dude i'm about 25/26 stone in your language about 160Kgs and from what i have learn it's not the chair that's it rated for it's the Wheel Base not the chair part.Quote

That is a good point, thanks. It is annoying that the chair is not designed to hold higher loads then.

I do know that is is possible to buy aftermarket bases on places like Amazon, and with some quick searching it does seem that the plastic/nylon bases only support users of up to 18st, which matches up with the weight limits seen here.

It would be possible to get an aftermarket metal base that can support heavier users, though I have not looked into the cost of that yet.

edit - I will send a tweet to Nitro Concepts and see if this chair can support higher loads if a metallic base is used.Quote

Problem with cheap chairs is the gas lift goes after time and you have that sinking feeling or the ass foam craps out and you end up sitting on boards.

I weigh about 17-18 stone and even I have issues with crap chairs. Mind you, in fairness I was five stone lighter up until about three years ago when I changed my meds. But yeah, chairs like these never last man.

I got a Humanscale Freedom Headrest worth about £1200 for £240 about 18 months back. Faultless chair. I would always take a real chair over one of these "racing" chairs.Quote
