Ewin Racing Champion gaming chair review
The Ewin Racing gaming chairs have a race chair like look and feel. The top of the chair as well as the two removable cushions feature Ewin branding. One gripe I have about the cushions is that the head cushion is very small. It provides some support for the back of your neck but it's too small to be really useful.
The lumbar pillow is a lot larger and uses very firm foam. The position of the cushion is adjustable or you can also remove it entirely.
Gaming chairs like the Champion offer a high degree of customization. Typical office chairs let you adjust the chair height and the better variants let you tilt backward. The Champion has all of those features and more. It has a recline lever that lets you adjust the backrest's angle from 88 to 155 degrees. When you need a moment to relax, or when you want to watch the latest Game of Thrones, you can just pull the lever and relax. Furthermore, the Champion also includes 4D adjustable armrests. More about those later.
The next photo shows the quality finish of the back. It also shows the release buckles of the two pillows.
The chair is cladded with 1.2mm PU leather, this is a cheaper fabric than real leather and it has a nice uniform looking finish. There are some gaming chairs from other vendors that use real leather but those are a lot more expensive. The fabric is one of the more vulnerable parts of a chair, as soon as there's a big rip it's embarrassing to continue to use it even if the rest of the chair is still perfectly OK. As I've only been using this chair for three weeks I can't comment on the long-term durability, at the moment it still looks as good as new.
The chair is supported by a sturdy five-star aluminium base.
The base has five heavy-duty 2" caster wheels made from polyurethane, they roll very smoothly.
The next photo shows the two levers that are found on the right side of the chair. The big one lets you adjust the height of the seat while the smaller lever lets you operate the back recliner. The tilt tension can be adjusted via a big knob at the bottom of the seat and the big lever also lets you lock the chair in the neutral position. One small gripe I have about the chair's height adjustment is that it doesn't go low enough. My height is 175cm and I feel the minimum height will probably be a bit too high for people that are a lot smaller than me.
