The holidays are quickly approaching, making it the best time to buy a DXRacer chair. They’re stylish, comfortable, incredibly well built, and are always available for a reasonable price. In many ways, they set the standard for what good gaming chairs should be.

However, when confronted with DXRacer’s massive lineup, it can be difficult to choose which chair is right for you. Never fear — we here at High Ground have put together this extensive guide to help you understand the differences between models, point out features and flaws you should be aware of, and direct you to the best models. Let’s dive in!

Zoom In: The 5 Best DXRacer Gaming Chairs

So what are the best DXRacer chairs, and what makes a good DX racer chair… a good DXRacer chair? While those can be complicated questions, here are our top five recommendations that you should consider purchasing.

1. DXRacer Racing Series OH/RAA106

DXRacer Racing Series OH RAA106

The best DXRacer chair overall

Max Height: 50” – 53” | Weight Capacity: 200 lbs | Recline: 90° – 135° | Material: Foam, Leather, Metal | Price: 💰💰💰

The latest iteration of the DXRacer’s flagship Racing Series sits at the top of our 2020 list. It offers an elegant and ergonomic design for a low price — overall, you get a high-quality, versatile, and customizable chair for the price of a basic office model.

The Racing Series represents the most dynamic blend of every feature in the DXRacer lineup. It has a full 135° recline, a 15° rocking mode, and a three-inch height differential. The chair can support an individual up to six feet tall and weighing up to 200 lbs. while still retaining a full range of motion.

All of this flexibility is encapsulated in a firm, steel frame with high-density molded foam padding, all wrapped in a blend of nylon cloth and polyurethane leather. It’s currently available in four different color variations, includes a two-year warranty, and can be returned for free within 30 days. It can even be fully customized for a few hundred dollars more if you want to turn this already excellent chair into a fine-tuned gaming machine. 

  • USERS LIKE
  • Heavy-duty metal frame
  • Comfortable single-piece foam padding
  • Versatile and flexible adjustment system
  • USERS DISLIKE
  • Some users find the high back to be too stiff
  • Wheel casing has been known to crack easily
  • Middle size structure doesn’t support larger users

2. DXRacer King Series OH/KS06/NB

DXRacer King series OH KS06 NB

The best king-size gaming chair

Max Height: 52” – 55” | Weight Capacity: 275 lbs | Recline: 90° – 135° | Material: Vinyl, Polyurethane leather | Price: 💰💰💰💰

The King Series is the perfect option for taller gamers. Its maximum weight capacity allows for 75 lbs more than the Racing Series and can comfortably support anyone up to 6’2″. Luckily, the taller back doesn’t limit your ability to recline, and the larger base means you won’t need to worry about stability even when fully leaned back.

This older model includes padded armrests, anti-scratch PU casters, and a breathable vinyl/leather upholstery blend. It still includes molded foam padding, a minimal rocking mode, and versatile 4D arm adjustments. 

One of the main drawbacks of the King Series is the seat design. It includes raised upper lips that limit the available surface area and can be uncomfortable for larger people. Add on the higher cost and limited availability of previous models, and the King Series serves as a great but somewhat difficult-to-find gaming chair option.

  • USERS LIKE
  • Versatile armrest adjustment
  • Wide base for a stable recline
  • High-back and increased weight capacity
  • USERS DISLIKE
  • Somewhat expensive
  • Stock not readily available to purchase
  • Raised sides make the cushion space a bit limited

3. DXRacer Classic Series OH/CE120/N

DXRacer Classic Series OH CE120 N

The best ergonomic DXRacer gaming chair

Max Height: 51” – 55” | Weight Capacity: 250 lbs | Recline: 90° – 120° | Material: Leather vinyl, Aluminum | Price: 💰💰💰

The DXRacer Classic is the brand’s ergonomic model. It’s literally named “classic,” and for good reason — its overall design emulates a very traditional (but comfortable) office chair. This design makes the chair an excellent option for those looking for a larger seat to sink into or needing a higher back and weight capacity to sit comfortably.

Unfortunately, the classic design does have its limitations. While it retains much of the foam-padding structure of other models, it has a smaller base that doesn’t wrap around you. It also limits your ability to recline, adjust the chair arms, and rock from side to side.

Though the smaller base does limit this chair’s versatility, the large, comfortable seat and ergonomic back more than make up for the drawbacks. The lower price is also a welcome factor that makes this chair a strong introductory option if you can find one available for purchase.

  • USERS LIKE
  • Lower price
  • Large, padded seat
  • Comfortable and sizeable ergonomic back
  • USERS DISLIKE
  • Stock not readily available to purchase
  • Smaller base makes the chair a bit unstable
  • Limited ability to recline and adjust the chair arms

4. DXRacer Formula Series OH/FD01/N

DXRacer Formula Series OH FD01 N

The best DXRacer chair under $300

Max Height: 50” – 53” | Weight Capacity: 200 lbs | Recline: 90° – 135° | Material: Mesh, Polyurethane leather | Price: 💰💰

The Formula Series represents the most basic and functional model that DXRacer offers. It’s light, includes breathable surface material while still allowing for the same max height, weight, and recline of the Racing Series. Add in the fact that it’s often priced for $300 or less, and it serves as the best and most available introductory model.

For having such a minimal design, the Formula Series still retains the comfort and quality of the rest of the DXRacer lineup. It just skimps on some of the more technical features such as side-to-side rocking and limits the use of leather and metal for casing material. This can unfortunately lead to wider-spread aesthetic wear and tear and cracking on some of the casing.

Luckily, these limitations don’t shorten the lifespan of the chair. For such a low price, the drawbacks definitely aren’t dealbreakers.

  • USERS LIKE
  • Low price
  • Compact and ergonomic design
  • Breathable mesh and leather fabric
  • USERS DISLIKE
  • Wheel housings known to crack
  • Frame and armrests aren’t the most comfortable
  • Cheaper materials known to wear out more quickly

5. DXRacer Tank Series OH/TS29/NE

DXRacer Tank Series OH TS29 NE

The best heavy-duty GTRacing chair

Max Height: 52” – 55” | Weight Capacity: 400 lbs | Recline: 90° – 120° | Material: Polyurethane leather | Price: 💰💰💰

The Tank Series serves as the perfect blend between the Classic and King Series. It’s an ergonomically-designed model with a wider base and back that includes a bit of the gamer flair the rest of the DXRacer lineup is known for. It also serves as the best option for taller and heavier players who need a bit more support and still want to have a wide range of available adjustments.

In many ways, this chair eliminates the drawbacks of the other models that inspired its design. It removes the strange seat cushion upper lips, retains the wide base, and minimizes some of the additional features found on the King Series. This makes it much more usable for gamers of every size, but makes the higher price tag a bit confusing.

Combine this strange combination of missing features and high cost with limited availability, and it somewhat brings down the viability of this model. However, if you need a chair with a larger weight and height range, this is the best option provided by DXRacer.

  • USERS LIKE
  • Sturdy metal frame
  • Greater height and weight support
  • Large and comfortable seat cushion
  • USERS DISLIKE
  • A bit expensive
  • Stock not readily available to purchase
  • Limited recline and adjustable features

Buyer’s Guide: Best DXRacer Gaming Chairs

DXRacer Gaming Chair Tech

DXRacer has so many fantastic gaming chairs that deciding on the best one for you is almost entirely subjective. Every model retains a high level of quality, which increases or decreases based on the price point. To help you find the best option, we’ll explore the different factors you should consider and take a deeper dive into the DXRacer brand.

Why Buy a DXRacer Gaming Chair?

The short answer is quality. Every chair, no matter which one you choose, is built with high-quality fabrics, high-density foams, and metal frames. The overall design is always flexible and stable, meaning that you’ll get thousands of hours of use without fear of the chair falling apart.

The folks at DXRacer are confident in the quality of their products, offering a two-year warranty on almost all of their stock options (and even some customized builds). Regardless of which build you choose, you can be confident that you’re getting a chair made to fit your needs.

What Products Does DXRacer Offer?

DX Racer currently offers six different gaming chair variations on their site, which we’ve listed here:

  • Formula Series
  • Racing Series
  • King Series
  • Valkyrie Series
  • Sentinel Series
  • Tank Series

They also make Special Edition models, which are available on their site and are typically updated on a quarterly or annual basis.

We mentioned the Classic Series earlier in this list — though it’s not part of DXRacer’s modern lineup, it contains some of the best DXRacer gaming chairs ever made. Fortunately, the lineup is still fully-supported by the company and can be purchased through third-party sellers like Amazon.

They also offer replacement parts, apparel, racing simulator pedals, roller mats, and mouse pads on a limited basis. They even created a lineup of Ottoman Footstools at one point, but they’re tough to find unless you’re buying secondhand.

What are the Standard Features for a DXRacer Gaming Chair?

We’ve mentioned the consistent quality of DXRacer chairs a number of times, mainly due to the standard features available across every product line. No matter which option you choose, you can expect the following features:

  • Matching-color lumbar and/or headrest cushions
  • Footrest-shaped base
  • Adjustable height and tilt
  • Ergonomic design
  • Generous warranties

Other features will vary based on the chair model you choose. You can expect your chair to be made of a combination of polyurethane, leather vinyl, or breathable mesh. The base will either be nylon or aluminum, and the armrests will either have one, two, or four adjustment directions.

Which DXRacer Chair Is Best for Me?

When purchasing one of the best DXRacer gaming chairs for you, here are a few factors you might want to consider:

1. Height Adjustment

If you’re a taller person, you’ll want to pay careful attention to the recommended max height and the total adjustment range. Most DXRacer chairs support, at a minimum, anyone 5’7″ or below, with others supporting people as tall as 6’7″. Luckily, the team at DXRacer lays out these height parameters incredibly clearly, and most reviews mention comfort at exact heights, so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting.

2. Weight Capacity

Similar to height, any DXRacer chair listing clearly lays out the overall weight capacity. Their smaller models support up to 200 lbs, while their larger models support between 400-450 lbs. You can usually expect around 30 lbs of additional capacity outside of the recommended weight, but be careful not to push it too far. 

3. Materials

We mentioned this before, but you can expect one (or a blend) of some kind of leather and breathable mesh material. Honestly, this really shouldn’t impact your decision too much. Any material used is top-tier, and unless you have a personal preference or want a specific look, you’ll probably find it to be incredibly comfortable.

4. Rotation and Recline

The actual variation in recline range, rotation, and rocking capability is fairly minimal between chair models. Across the board, you’re typically looking at a range of 90° – 120°/135°, a full 360° rotation, and (in some cases) a 15° side-to-side rocker. Know how far back you’d like to recline and if sideways movement matters to you before making a decision.

5. Price

How much does a DXRacer gaming chair cost, anyway?

You can expect to spend between $180 and $600, with most options sitting around the $300 mark. If you opt for a customized or Special Edition chair, you can expect to shell out closer to $700 or $800. Just know that even the lower-priced models are incredibly well-built, and you aren’t sacrificing quality to save a few hundred bucks.
