AKRacing Gaming Chair Overview
The red/black AKRacing Rush gaming chair I received for review arrived from their Walnut, California distribution center. Available direct from 4GamerGear (who is also the US distributor for OZONE gaming accessories) for $299, the RUSH AK-6016 model we’ve received represents a small investment for long-term comfort.
AKRacing gaming chairs come in a variety of designs, from simple black or white schemes, to colorful combinations that really go over the top to stand out. One common feature in nearly every model is the over-shoulder harness cut-outs, which are identical to those in authentic race car seats.
Unlike authentic race car seats, AKRacing adds plenty of padding to their gaming chairs. the model we’re testing for this review came with a small head pillow and lower-back support pillow; both made with matching materials and elastic straps that fit around the chair’s backrest.
Like the surface material designs, AKRacing uses a combination of different roller wheels on their gaming chairs. The AK-6016 Rush gaming chair sent for this review came with black plastic coaster wheels, whereas other models come with much nicer racing wheels with 8-spoke design in either black or chrome. 4GamerGear.com is offering the racing wheels as an upgrade kit for $29.99.
All AKRacing gaming chair feature a steel frame, with lever handle along the right hinge to adjust the backrest position. Levers and knobs beneath the seat cushion adjust chair height and rocking limits. The frame works together with shaped cushions for an ergonomic finish.
Behind the backrest is a good place for the stand-out eSports competitor to place their handle, or even number their chair with vinyl decals like a race car. Either way, AKRacing gives you excitement on the front, and a blank canvas in the back.
