AKRacing Rush Gaming Chair Review

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.


In the next section we’ll explore some of the detailed features offered on these AKRacking gaming chairs…

    Local New Zealand retailer Harvey Normans has this chair and I was looking at it 2 weeks ago thinking that would be a really replacement for my 2yr old racing chair but the one thing that put me off was the exorbitant price of $795.00NZD so now after seeing they go for $299USD I might go see if I can haggle a bit with them

      I see $299 is not the actual price for this chair at all it’s normally $369USD and on sale for $349USD so 50 bucks difference

        The actually price is $299: http://amzn.to/1NJwHb0
        I’m not sure why you thought it was more.

    Great review of the details (with pictures) My only question remaining is what is meant by “extra-large”?
    I wasnt sure if it was PC for fat or large posterior or not.
    Broad of Beam seemed is what I inferred from the obstructions referred to in the article part which also used extra-large and seemed to be about the seat part and the parts between the arm rests, though sometimes those highly supportive ‘sport seats’ Recaro put out in desk models years ago were not suited for tall or broad shoulders/latissimus dorsi areas either.
    I am interested in a chair with these recommendations -all day comfort and had some of those ‘ergonomic’ misrepresented offerings over 25 or more years.
    The price is right for this one, your reviews are very accurate and detailed so your opinion is a valued one.
    I have been looking for a good desk chair for decades and wondered why so few, if any , now, had the car seat adjustment. I had one I got for work and was that feature that sold me, however, the chair was awful -but it did have that lever.

    Is there any difference between this and all other models? almost all of them, with quersus as exception, looks the same to me.

      Very little difference in the actual product design, since most are re-branded from a central supplier.
