AKRacing Gaming Chair Detailed Features
In this section we take a detailed look at the features built into AKRacing’s Rush gaming chair. We begin with a close-up look at the color-matched stitching on our RUSH model, which illustrates the quality of manufacture and texture of leather-feeling synthetic material.
On all AKRacing gaming chairs, adjustable armrests come standard. The armrest itself is comprised of closed-cell foam with poly-vinyl over molding. The rests adjust to a height of 13.4″, and down to approximately 10.6″ (340-270mm). Some assembly is required, so when the arms are bolted to the frame they may be made wide or narrow by approximately one inch total.
All AKRacing gaming chair seat bottoms measure 14.4″ (365mm) wide, which fits most small to large sizes. Extra-large sizes may not fit as comfortably in AKRacing gaming chairs, as the side padding and armrests may cause obstruction.
A look below the seat cushion reveals a system of elastic bands stretching across the bottom, which offer gentle support without the discomfort of a plastic frame or coil system. Also shown is the tilt limit knob, which can be adjust for relaxed control of the chair.
I’ve included the graphic below (courtesy AKRacing) to illustrate some of the more specific construction features with their gaming chair series. On some models the basic roller caster wheels are used, and others receive the more appealing racing spoke design.
All chairs make use of their class-4 gas lift strut, and a strong metal frame. AKRacing offers an extended-height hydraulic gas lift strut. It does not appear that armrest extenders are available at this time.
Also available on every AKRacing gaming chair is their reclining backrest system, reminiscent of automotive seats. The image below illustrates an AKRacing chair fully extended, ready for a between-rounds rest (pillows included).
In the next section I’ll discuss my final thoughts on these gaming chairs, and offer a summary conclusion based on the features we’ve reviewed.
