How to Choose a Gaming Chair?
What do we look for when choosing a gaming chair?
3. Gas Lift
4. Mechanism & Recliner
The first component of a gaming chair I will be talking about is also one of the most crucial in ensuring the longevity of the chair. The wheels are the key component in determining the weight limit of the chair.
As a rule of thumb, the bigger the wheel, the more weight it is able to hold.
The wheels on a gaming chair often come in different sizes ranging from 50mm all the way up to 75mm. The design of the wheels will also differ from brand to brand but this is a purely personal preference.
Another concern that you may have is the wheels scratching your marble or wood flooring. Meetion's wheels consist of smooth racing wheels with zero scratches and have been tested for 100,000 rotations.
The base plays an important role in the overall structural integrity of the gaming chair. It also comes in various materials and designs. Mainly, nylon and aluminum alloy. Aluminum alloy is definitely the better choice of material here, giving you a more sturdy and luxurious feeling. Once again, the design of the base is up to your personal preference.
This simple contraption facilitates the up and down movement of the chair. The hydraulics lift can be categorized into different classes (1 to 4). Class 3 gas lifts do a good enough job to meet most needs.
Mechanism & Recliner
These components are the brains of the entire gaming chair. Depending on the variation, it will control the various functions that the gaming chair is able to perform. The multi-functional one found on the King Series will be able to perform the following functions:
1.Moving the chair up and down
2.Enable rocking movement back and forth
3.Control magnitude of rocking
4.Lock the rocking mechanism
One of the main draws to a gaming chair is its ability to recline to a certain, usually extreme, degree. Most gaming chairs on the market will be able to recline up to 155 degrees. Before purchasing your gaming chair, you should check with the seller on the level at which it is able to recline. And Meetion's gaming chair can be tilted to a degree of 180 degrees for greater comfort
The basic function of an armrest is rather simple. It is to ensure that your arms are comfortable during long hours of gaming or working. The armrest on gaming chairs can come in different forms, 2D, 3D, or 4D. The D, in this case, refers to directions.
The armrest on Royale Ergonomics’ chairs is 4D. This means it is able to move 4 directs to ensure that you are able to find the optimal position for comfort. The four directions are:
1.Up and down
2.Left and right
3.Forward and backward
4.Tilt left or right
This part of gaming chairs has the most significant impact when it comes to the longevity of the gaming chair. We have all heard horror stories of gaming chairs peeling, flaking, and discoloring despite only being purchased 1 or 2 years ago.
The ergonomics of the gaming chair are often used by gaming chair companies to market their products. However, you must pay more attention to this aspect of the gaming chair and not be misled.
The generic lumbar support and headrest often do not help with the overall ergonomics of the gaming chair. Instead, the odd shape of the lumbar support and headrest might actually be detrimental to your posture.
