Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We're unsure exactly how this happened, as this is the only time an incident like this has ever happened to myself. While in use, the first few weeks were great! However, we noticed a hairline fracture on the Tilt Mechanism of the chair, and figured nothing of it, because it was metal after all. Upon further usage there began a noticeable change in the chairs functioning. One day, with the chair in use there was a pop, and the hydraulic lift lever came out of place. We worked hard to put it back, upon repairing the minor issue we noticed the hairline crack had now become a noticeable split in the metal.
We actually have no idea how to fix this issue, the spare parts for the AKRacing Chairs are strictly exclusive to the Euro/Australian zones, and we cannot find any through dealers / resellers.
If you're going to buy this chair, please note as said above there are a rarity of spare parts for U.S. Customers.
Admittedly this is my first "gamer" chair, which I guess means I've gone full-nerd at this point. Previously I have worked exclusively with generic Staples brand chairs. So, with that disclaimer...
Assembly - Pretty easy - I generally suck at putting things together, this thing took about half an hour to assemble. The key problem is that the instructions it comes with are, without a doubt, the WORST instructions any company has ever included. They also offer 0 support on their website for assembly. I ended up watching some polish dude on YouTube struggle for 90 minutes putting hte thing together. At least I did better than him?
Size/Support - I went with the AKRacer because I am a big guy (6'5, 230, wide build.) and this thing does NOT disappoint. I can finally rest my head against the back of a chair! Very exciting stuff. The arm rests could go a little higher in an ideal world, but they are fine. The reclining is fantastic, and i can go...
I am 6"1 and 260 lbs, and this chair has the height and head support I was looking for (and the aesthetics to match my system). Assembly wasn't difficult, for any questions there are a few YouTube videos that provide some decent direction. The only thing that needs to be improved is the seat support. It relies on some elastic bands that don't provide enough support, my bottom was touching the top of the metal chair support. To rectify this, I ended up putting a piece of Styrofoam I had from work between the support and the seat. This greatly improved the support and comfort. If this is improved in next model, would be five stars.
