Thermaltake have got us on the edge of our seat with their new eSPORTS X Comfort and X Fit Gaming Chairs. These additions present themselves as serious contenders to the league of premium gaming chairs that are currently on the market, and here’s why.
Both the X Fit and the X Comfort have plentiful aesthetic and practical attributes that make them emerge within their field. Both chairs are furnished with an exclusive carbon-style design. This consists of high-quality faux leather that ensures increased durability, breathability and is even resistant to spills. In addition, the durable 75kg-density foam padding doesn’t lose shape and consistently offers users the most comfortable experience possible whilst simultaneously adopting an anti-fatigue design and all-round body-contouring to encourage a healthy and supportive purpose.
Both models come with a headrest pillow and lumbar support cushion, with the X Comfort’s lumbar support being loose and the X Fit’s being attachable via elastic braces; these provide essential head, neck and back support for users, especially those sat for long periods of time. The 160 degree adjustable back allows users enormous flexibility in recline and the associated Z Support Multi-Function Tilt Mechanism cleverly matches the user’s bodyweight for safe and sturdy rocking. Another adjustable feature comes in the form of the powerful class-4 gas piston which allows a seat height range of between 18” and 22”, meaning that the chairs are built to suit anyone between 5ft and 6’5” tall. A savvy 4D adjustable armrest gives height, front/back and side to side movement options which, again, show Thermaltake’s dedication to the user’s physical support.
Focusing on the base of the chair, the X Comfort and the X Fit both possess a 5 star Aluminium base. Opposed to some other gaming chairs with nylon bases, this stronger, higher-quality metal can give peace of mind to consumers that they’re getting the most durability possible from their purchase. Along with this, large 3” caster wheels are included; - these promise quieter operation and a free glide.
Built on a 22MM diameter enhanced steel framework, the X Fit has a net weight of 27.2kg and can support up to 120kg while the X Comfort has a net weight of 27kg and can support a massive weight of up to 150kg.
Both the X Comfort 500 and the X Fit 100 are obvious works of art. Carefully, strategically and intelligently designed, these gaming chairs have deservedly sat themselves right on top of respective competitors.
