Features of the RECARO Exo gaming chair

The RECARO Exo gaming seat was developed from scratch and in cooperation with the community: therefore the features are specifically tailored to the needs of ambitious gamers.

RECARO Exo features Seat shell

With the RECARO Exo, we utilize a seat shell that, in combination with the seat cushion, ensures the highest level of ergonomics. This supports and relieves at the same time, and thus allows for the highest level of concentration during long gaming sessions.

RECARO Exo features Anti-submarining hump

The seat cushion of our gaming chair has an integrated anti-submarining hump, which, along with the special fabrics, ensures that you have reliable and firm support.

RECARO Exo features Lumbar support

The backrest of our gaming seat has a fixed lumbar support, which helps you to adopt an upright sitting position while at the same time relieving the strain on your spine.

RECARO Exo features Swing function

Thanks to the special swing function of the RECARO Exo, your back muscles are at ease, helping you to relax at all times while you play.

RECARO Exo features Seat height

The seat height of our gaming seat can be fully adjusted at any time, making the RECARO Exo perfect for gamers of almost any height.

RECARO Exo features Hand wheels

The backrest of the RECARO Exo is fully adjustable to your needs via the hand wheels, one on each side.

RECARO Exo features 5D armrests

Our RECARO Exo FX and Exo Platinum have innovative 5D armrests that offer further adjustment options and 360 degrees of rotation. This makes the seat ideal for PC and console gamers.

The seat shell

For the RECARO Exo, we have designed a special seat shell that combines the best elements from the automotive sector with the gaming market. The seat shell, in conjunction with the seat cushion, offers the finest ergonomics, supporting and relieving your body at the same time. Only in this manner can you achieve maximum concentration, even during long gaming sessions. Our experts deliberately chose the design of the backrest as it discreetly shields you from your surroundings.

For the high-quality foam cushioning, we draw on our decades of experience in the automotive sector and combine it with breathable materials. This guarantees not only long-lasting seating comfort, but also a pleasant seating climate at any temperature. This know-how and the combination of materials ensure the highest level of ergonomics, so you can concentrate on what really matters: gaming!

Anti-submarining hump

The best ergonomics and reliable support in any position. To achieve this, we have integrated an anti-submarining hump into the seat cushion, which was originally developed for the automotive sector. In our gaming chair, the hump, in conjunction with the anti-slip fabrics, ensures that your body does not slide off the seat, but instead stays firmly in position.

Lumbar support

There is a fixed lumbar support in the backrest. This helps to maintain an upright seating position and provides relief for the spine. It also makes it more difficult for tired muscles to adopt incorrect postures when sitting for long periods of time.

This supports your upper body and keeps it in the optimal position. As a result, you do not have to spend unnecessary time and energy finding the right position in your seat, or adjusting your posture over and over, allowing you to fully focus on the on-screen action.

5D armrests (RECARO Exo FX & Exo Platinum)

The RECARO Exo FX and Exo Platinum have innovative 5D armrests. These can be adjusted in terms of height and distance to the seat, rotated horizontally by 360 degrees, and folded away to the side and back to provide more free space when gaming. This makes our seats ideal for console gamers and PC gamers who play with a controller. The special soft-touch support pads are even a touch more comfortable than our 4D armrests for improved long-term comfort.
