Features You Will Find In DX Racer Chairs


DX Racer gaming chairs are built with a high quality materials and have options that generally surpass their low ball competitors. Here are a few things you will commonly find in a DX Racer chair:

  • High Density Foam. They incorporate cold cure foam cushion technology. Other manufacturers use foam that is mass produced into one single block, then later cut down to size. Cold cure foam cushioning gives the foam an outer skin which prevents air from escaping allowing the cushion to better shape to the contours of your body.
  • Larger wheels.  Standard office chair wheels are around 2 inches. DX Racer chairs mostly come with 3 inch wheels to best provide easy mobility over hard floors as well as mats and or carpets.
  • 3D & 4D adjustable armrests. You can set these for up to 8 positions. Giving you more room between your arms as well as allowing for you to set the proper height for your forearms to rest on your desk, particularly when using a keyboard or mouse for long periods time.
  • High backrest. All of the chairs in the DXRacer brand are constructed with a higher than normal backrest which will support your entire spinal column from your buttocks to the back of your head. It is shaped in a curved and comes with pillows to provide ergonomic support.

Which DX Racer Is Best For You?


Finding the best DXRacer gaming chair will greatly depend on the right size, comfort, and personal preference like colors and styles. There are solid colors or you can choose mixed colors. There are racing seats and there are more executive style chairs for the office.

Note that when choosing a DX Racer chair, it’s important to not only find the right height and weight specifications but also be aware that the seat pan on these chairs comes with bolstered sides. This means that if you don’t pick a wide enough chair, you may feel restricted. Unfortunately, there is no adjustment as these are due to their metal framing (So be sure to read the specs and choose the correct style for your size and body type before buying). Especially if you are considering purchasing online, will you want to measure your height, weight, and width. (No one needs to know but you).

Pay attention to foam (sponge) density when deciding on chair style. If you are looking for a more ‘soak into the chair’, relaxed feeling as opposed to having a more firm support like that of a work chair, then you want to specify that in the product description. The Max Series for example only comes in a dense form.

One unique feature that sets this company apart from many of its competitors is that they have several specific series types of game chairs that are relevant to the needs and size of each user.  They include the Formula Series, the Racing Series, the King Series, the Classic Series, Wide Series, Iron Series, Drift Series, and the Tank Series which means there are sizes and styles to fit everyone’s game chair needs.
