Nitro Concept's E200 Race Series Gaming Chair Review

Overview - Up close and personal

 

Like the name would suggest the Nitro Concepts E200 Race is designed to deliver a racing style aesthetic, with this particular model looking great with its discrete black design and red seams with the carbon fibre styled bolsters coming together to deliver what is truly a beautiful chair. 

The Carbon model that we have for review comes with a very neutral aesthetic, not drawing too much attention to itself but looking very impressive to the eye when you look at it up close.

The majority of the chair is covered with PU faux leather, with the main base and squad of the chair being finely perforated for increased breathability, which will come in handy when you work or game during hot weather. The lateral supports of the chair use a carbon fibre effect material, adding to the chair's racing themed aesthetic.

Nitro Concept's design if first and foremost about ergonomics, building upon the tired and proven 360-degree swivel chair design to offer users with a great deal of comfort and a reliable design. Users of this chair can lean back by tp to 15-degrees, with the rocking mechanism being adjustable via a control knob at the bottom of the seat and activated via a lever at the side of the chair.    

Using the chair's right-hand side lever the chair's height can also be adjusted using the chair's safety class 4 gas lift, which is able to hold the moss of the chair and a user that weighs up to 120kg.

With the E200 Race, the armrests are firmly attached to the rear of the chair and sit at a height that is designed to suit most users when sat at a desk or when lounging with a gamepad.  

These armrests are attached to the rear of the chair with three bolts each and lacks any form of customizability, though to be honest, you can't expect any more from a chair that costs less than £200.

The base of the chair is made from black nylon and is equipped with five 50mm diameter casters, which are PV coated and are designed to match your chair's accent colour, with the red casters on their chair matching up with the chair's red seams.   

All in all the E200 does everything that you would expect from a gaming chair, with firm yet supportive padding, a sturdy frame and a high-quality aesthetic.

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
