EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair: Introduction

Just about anything in the computer world has a gaming version. Monitors, keyboards, mice, motherboards, cases, and even entire laptops can be dedicated to gaming. And what gamer wouldn't like that? Manufacturers figured out years ago that gaming versions of their products help sales, so they put extra effort into making their gaming lines as appealing as possible to existing and potential gamers. Of course, gamers want the extra edge, no matter how small it may be. One thing that gamers do (myself included) is spend a lot of time parked in front of their monitors, blasting away enemies or trekking through elaborate maps in RPGs. But you have to be comfortable. You can't be distracted by a creaky old office chair. So what better way to game than in a gaming chair?

 

 

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair: Closer Look

There are four lines of gaming chair styles in the EWin product line up and they are all available in different trim and accent colors. The different series include the Champion, Calling, Hero, and Flash. Today we have the Champion Series in blue. Other color options include red, white, orange, and pink. The chair comes disassembled in a plain cardboard box. The "plain" ends quickly as you get the box open and start going through the components. On top is the base, which is well-protected with individual bubble wrap pouches.

 

As soon as you lift the base out of the box you realize that this all metal - no plastic. The website says it is aluminum, but I was able to get a magnet to stick to it, and aluminum is not magnetic. Regardless, it is robust and solid. Next is the seat back, which is also well-protected in plastic.

 

 

With the plastic bag removed, the rich PU leather and blue accents grab your attention. There are two pillows attached, but they are easily removable by disconnecting the elastic straps on the back. So far, the quality looks excellent. That leather sure is soft.

 

 

The next component is the seat base. The soft leather and blue accents continue across the seat cushion. Now we are ready to attach the seat back to the seat base and then the base with the wheels.

  

 

Before assembly begins, it is a good idea to go through the hardware kit and, of course, the instructions. The instructions go over each step and clearly list the components and hardware. The pictures do a fine job of walking you through each step. A few minutes spent with the instructions will shorten the assembly process.

   

 

The assembly process is rather straightforward and in less than 10 minutes you can have a chair ready for some gaming action. While I am presenting this as a gaming chair, it is technically called an Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair. Regardless of what you call it, I am ready for some seat time. But first, let's look at some of the details.

  

 

A closer look at the pillows shows that the same care and quality that go into the chair go into the pillows. They are both adjustable and completely removable, if you like. The EWin logo embroidery looks very nice. All of the stitching and seams look great.

 

 

Here is the lever to raise and lower the chair. Height adjustment is simple and similar to any office chair. Sit down, pull the lever, and the seat lowers. Stand up, pull the lever, and the seat raises. The Class-4 gas lift cylinder can handle the lifting job up to 330lbs. Push or pull this lever in or out and you lock or unlock (Free / Lock) the tilt mechanism. Looking at he picture on the right, there is the pull lever to recline the chair. This adjusment ranges between 85 and 155 degrees. I call the 155-degree position "nap mode".

 

 

The wheels are smooth and quiet when you roll around. On the right is the tilt adjustment. It is spring-loaded and you can adjust the tilt resistance by twisting the knob. The lift lever shown above can be set to Lock or Free which enables or disables the tilt function.

 

 

The armrests are independently adjustable with four degrees of freedom, which include: raise / lower, forward / back, in / out, and rotation. These are easier to demonstrate in the video below.

 

 

Ah, yes, here we are fully reclined or in what I call "nap mode."  Besides the overall comfort, a big thing that I noticed with this chair is how quiet it is. You can move around and shift your weight from side to side or forward and back and there is pretty much no sound. No rattles, no popping - just plain quiet. Even when you roll around it is quiet. This is a big plus for me.
