The 4D and 5D armrests
The special 5D armrests are a high-quality feature of the RECARO Exo FX and Exo Platinum. These armrests allow full customization and have numerous adjustment options. The RECARO Exo has 4D armrests.
How they work
Before you tighten the screws of the armrests, make sure that the armrests are at the desired distance from the seat. For height adjustment, there is a knob on the side below the armrests, which can be rotated horizontally in 15-degree increments up to 30 degrees.
The 5D armrests can also be rotated 360 degrees at the front pivot point. In addition, there is a button under the rear section of the support pad. By pressing this, the armrest can be rotated inwards up to 60 degrees or outwards up to 180 degrees.
That’s the ticket
Thanks to the many individual adjustment options, the armrests can be ideally adjusted to any situation and for every type of player—whether you want to change the height, distance to the seat, rotation, or fold them away almost completely. This way, you can perfectly adjust the armrests to your favorite posture, desk, and height. If you also prefer to play with a controller, you can even fold the 5D armrests back. Larger-built gamers will also be pleased to know that the distance between the seat and the armrests can be generously adjusted. Even if you like to sit cross-legged, this is no problem thanks to the 5D armrests.
