Much like the beds we sleep in, it’s very important to select the right chair to sit in for a good portion of our lives. I owned a comfortable office chair that followed me around after college, and played several roles at the dining table on occasion. More recently, there was the expensive Embody chair review that stirred controversy. Now we’ve got gaming chairs, bringing style together with luxury. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, I report my test results with the Vertagear SL2000 S-Line Racing Series gaming chair.
Vertagear is a new private brand, created on October 2014 by Vertagear, Inc. in California, USA.

Designed to give wide range of adjustability that gives gamers the best comfort and support in every gaming position for extended period of time. High backrest is designed to provide neck, shoulder and lumbar support.

To prevent repetitive stress, having the correct ergonomic posture is important when seated for a longer time. Seat adjustments ensure every type of user from different heights can adjust the chair to their unstressed posture. Good range of height adjustability to ensure you are at the optimum angle in relation to your desk.

The SL2000 is made of high quality synthetic PVC leather, which makes it extremely durable and gives the chair a luxurious look. This material is easy to clean and maintain due to it’s stain- and water-resistant characteristics.
The SL2000 padding is made of high density foam, which adds great support and seat comfort to the chair. The open-cell breathing structure ensured that heat given off from the body won’t get trapped inside. This gives great comfort to the user, even when seated for extended period of time.
The SL2000 is constructed from a steel frame that assures a solid structure. The aluminum alloy 5-star base keeps the chair solid, stable and lightweight. Assembled with a Class 4 gas lift for better durability and ease of use. Our Class 4 Gas Lift has thicker walls to accommodate the higher pressure and stability.

Our adjustable tilt tension mechanism allows you to increase or decrease the tension by easily turn the knob to match your body weight. This allows you to rock comfortably, without heavy pushing, reducing muscle fatigue.
