The right gaming chair is a battlestation essential. But where to begin? Let’s check out the best gaming chairs of 2021.
Gamers come in all shapes and sizes, so it stands to reason that there are plenty of gaming chair choices out there. Versatility, performance, comfort, and aesthetics are all key considerations when you’re searching for the ultimate gaming chair.
So if you’re looking for a chair that won’t compromise on performance, luxurious comfort, ergonomics, and versatility, there’s a model out there for you. Let’s check out the 10 best gaming chairs for your battlestation in 2021.
Razer Iskur X
The Iskur X from Razer is a solid entry point into the world of gaming chairs. There are others on this list that provide more in the way of bells and whistles, but this sleek model will provide enough comfort for hours of gaming.
Coming in standard and extra-large sizes, the Iskur X can provide for the tallest of gamers, with supportive high-density moulded foam and PVC/leather upholstery.
Herman Miller x Logitech G Embody
If the Razer Iskur X provided a solid base to start your gaming chair journey, the Herman Miller x Logitech G Embody represents the other end of the scale. This is the peak of comfort and ergonomic performance.
Tested by pro gamers and ergonomic experts alike, it doesn’t really get any better than this. Of course, you’ll be paying (a lot) for it, so it might be one to consider when you hit the e-sports big leagues.
Secret Lab TITAN Evo Series
‘Series’ is the operative word here because this is possibly the most customisable gaming chair on this list. Depending on your preference, the TITAN Evo could be many chairs in one.
There are small, regular, and extra-large sizes to choose from, a range of fabrics to suit your budget and comfort, plus, a host of colours to suit your style. If all those details matter, then this could be the chair for you.
Corsair T3 Rush
The T3 Rush from Corsair possesses a classy aesthetic and wouldn’t look out of place in the boardroom. Sleek and muted with comfy, breathable fabric, it doesn’t exactly scream ‘gaming chair’.
That is until, however, you discover a few of its secret tricks. Memory foam lumbar support and an easily adjustable backrest mean that you’ll be in control even in the longest gaming sessions.
Ok, so a non-gaming chair has made it into the list, but you definitely shouldn’t write this one off. It’s all in the name: Ergotune is designed to look after your back and neck, so it only makes sense that it would be perfect for long haul gaming.
It’s very intelligently engineered, with all kinds of options of adjusting to suit your body and support you in any task. And, if you need something that’s a little more office-friendly, it ticks all the boxes.
We brought you the more budget-friendly Iskur X from Razer at the top of the list, but the standard version adds a few more creature comforts to what is already a compelling package.
With in-built fully sculpted lumbar support, it’s just that extra notch up in terms of comfort and ergonomics. Plus, there are an additional two colours to choose from, making it easier to slot in amongst your decor.
This one is the mirror image of the Corsair T3 Rush: a chair that unabashedly wears its gaming pedigree on its sleeve. With bold colours, big logos, and even a militaristic base design, it certainly makes a statement.
But its ergonomic credentials are pretty impressive too. It has a sliding seat, 3D adjustable armrest and headrest, with plenty of scope for reclining too. It’s all topped off with a breathable mesh fabric.
Anda Seat T-Pro 2
If you like classic racing bucket seats, the T-Pro 2 from Anda Seat will be right up your alley. It has a classy look that’s fit for the battlestation or the office, and a host of adjustable features.
With 4D armrests (up-down, left-right, back-forwards, and tilt) and super-comfy memory pillows, you’ll want to take this luxurious chair wherever you go.
Next Level Racing Flight Simulator Lite
Ok, so this one probably won’t find its way into the office anytime soon — unless you work for an airline, airforce, or a billionaire who wants us to live in space. This is less of a chair and more of a cockpit — designed to give you the most realistic view from the pilot’s seat of your flight simulator, or racing game.
Lightweight and portable, this is an extremely well-considered piece of engineering, that is just the ticket for a ‘Next Level’ flight simulation or car racing experience.
Big Joe Dorm
We round off the list with something much more casual and fun. The Big Joe Dorm is perfect for getting your mates over for some local multiplayer action.
If you had a beanbag when you were a kid, but need to upgrade to something a tad more back-friendly in your old age, it doesn’t get any better than this comfy classic.
