Nitro Concept's E200 Race Series Gaming Chair Review

Assembly

The assembly process for the Nitro Concept's E200 Race can be easily summed up in a single word, simple, so much so that the build guide can be simplified to only six quick steps and the screwing of only 14 bolts.  

The E200 is not the most advanced chair in existence; it doesn't have adjustable arm rests or advanced tilt options, allowing the chair to be easily constructed with a few core components with minimal fuss within as little as 10 minutes. This isn't a chair that you will need to wrestle with instructions or require an engineering degree to assemble, this is a chair for the everyman and proves exactly why the simple option is often the best.

The Nitro Concepts E200 is not a chair that is designed to wow you with advanced features, after all, this is a chair and is designed to sitting. First, the E200 is heavier than your average chair, it is not your ultra affordable Ikea variety chair that you have likely worn out within three months of use. This chair uses firm freshly moulded cold foam instead of the recycled foam found in cheaper chair and is made with durable steel frame, which will ensure that this chair stands that test of time and gives this chair a sturdy construction. 

The E200 is a chair that follows a very traditional design but performs well in every aspect that truly matters, lacking the high level of customizability that comes with more expensive offerings and delivering when it comes to build quality and longevity.

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

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
