Competitive gaming is an exhilarating experience, to say the least. Some gamers might even be lucky enough to find success in earning a living by streaming their gameplay. However, spending countless hours of intense gaming can take a toll on your physical health. This is especially true if you’re not picky about the chair you’re sitting on.
One of the most interesting additions to the market of gaming chairs is the Kinsal Gaming Chair. This chair adopts the DXRacer design at a rather budget-friendly price tag, without compromising on comfort and quality.
So is this chair really worth your while? This is what we’re about to find out in this article.
Specifications & Features
The chair comes at a dimension of 53″ x 25″ x 9″ and a dry weight of 47 lbs. As you can tell, the chair is leaning a bit towards the heavier side, which might lead you to think that the assembly process is difficult. Surprisingly, piecing this chair together was a breeze and it didn’t require any tools whatsoever.
As far as the materials go, the frame and armrest of this chair are made almost completely out of metal, while the chair itself is covered with PU leather, which is known for its durability and its high resistance to wear and tear, making this chair an ideal choice for users who are aiming for a long lasting unit.
PU leather is also known to withstand extreme weather conditions. Additionally, it's very easy to clean if you're one of the many gamers who like to turn their gaming station into a diner. You should also know that PU is faux leather, so no animals were harmed in the process of making it.
The chair can carry weights that are up to 300 lbs and can accommodate heights of over 6′, which is pretty impressive for the price it's presented at. However, you might want to check the chair's measurements with respect to your body before making your purchase to ensure ideal comfort.
The backrest spans around 37″ in length and has a width of 22″, making it reasonably spacious for anyone. However, it would have been a wiser decision to go with a backrest that’s not attached to the chair itself.
The seat replicates the feeling of sitting in a racing car by adopting more of a bucket design with a spacious depth of 19.7″ and width of 20.4″. It’s kind of weird how the design of this chair can vastly improve your posture.
The height of this chair can easily be adjusted to suit your comfort needs. When properly adjusted, the maximum height achieved by this chair is around 49″, enough to have your feet dangling in the air. Not only that, but the armrest is also highly adjustable.
Moreover, the Kinsal Gaming Chair offers you the ability to adjust the tilt of the chair anywhere from 90° to 180°. This feature isn't very common among gaming chairs, which is automatically a plus for the chair and for your comfort
It only makes sense for a chair with a DXRacer style to have wheels that look like actual racing wheels, which is exactly what this chair has. The wheels are very durable and are super quiet on most surfaces.
Did we mention that this is an ergonomic chair? Well, the Kinsal Gaming Chair provides your head and back areas with removable cushions that offer adequate lumbar and curved spinal support, along with a high straight backrest.
Every single one of the Kinsal Gaming Chairs has its own unique ID card attached to it. Each ID card is different from the other, making it easier to troubleshoot and replace any damaged parts if necessary.
The Kinsal Gaming Chair comes with a bulletproof warranty. The chair can be returned with no questions asked within a 30-day window from the time of purchase. Post 30 days, the warranty will cover full part replacement for any damaged area.
Last but not least, the chair comes in eight different colors and can be purchased in regular or upgraded size to accommodate users of different weights and heights.
One of the strongest selling points of this chair is the fact that it feels like an actual car seat. And just like a car seat, it can easily snap back and forth. This chair is for those who seek comfort during binging on their favorite video games. Not to mention that the chair itself looks awesome and comes in a variety of colors to match the room.
Like we've already established, setting this chair up is extremely easy. The assembly process is mainly placing the three different parts that come with the chair into place. The whole setup process shouldn't take you more than two minutes.
No matter what your size is, this highly adjustable chair should be able to accommodate you. The ability to adjust the height of both the chair and the armrest, along with the adjustable chair tilt, should help you find the optimal comfort settings for you. Additionally, the high back ensures great comfort for taller folks.
While the adjustability is a very welcome feature, the armrest can’t be locked into a certain position, which occasionally makes them turn. It's weird how they didn't think of that but it’s still manageable, it just needs some getting used to.
This chair has a lot of trouble breathing, which can be very annoying for those who sweat a lot as it might lead to a severe case of wet chair during the hotter days of the year.
The chair does have a weird smell to it, almost like that of a new car. However, the smell dissipates after a few days anyway so it's not really a big deal.
The Kinsal Gaming Chairs are great budget-friendly chairs that offer a level of comfort that’s on par with many of the more expensive products on the market. But can it actually replace the DXRacer? Not quite, the DXRacer remains much better in terms of build quality and comfort than the majority of gaming chairs. However, at such a competitive price, the Kinsal sure has a lot to offer.
