5 Things Your Gaming Chair
Must Have

The gaming chair market has become almost confusing in recent years. If you separate the wheat from the chaff, what remains are high-quality products that are characterized by the following features:

Freedom of movement

Ergonomics in every fiber

Ergonomics focuses on adapting working conditions to the human body. Accordingly, monitor, desk and co. should be positioned and adjusted in a way that promotes a natural and healthy posture. 

The backrest should cover the entire length of your upper body and bend to a 90-degree angle. The firmly integrated lumbar support helps you to adopt the correct sitting position and prevents poor posture. This guarantees that you can concentrate 100 percent on what's happening on the screen and won't be distracted by stabbing back pain. 

The seat should not be too small, but should provide sufficient space. A flattened seat shell, lined with dimensionally stable premium upholstery foam, invites you to linger. 

If your elbows and forearms hover in the air while gaming, you not only run the risk of missing your target in the game, but your body will soon protest as well. 4D armrests emphasize the individual gaming posture, relieve the shoulders and neck muscles.


A gaming chair is subjected to intense stress. It is often in use for several hours and has to withstand strong movements and emotions. The sitting position is also changed again and again to get rid of one's own excitement and nervousness. 

If the individual components are not characterized by excellent quality and outstanding workmanship, they can quickly yield to pressure.

However, quality is not only reflected in the materials used. First and foremost, it is also evident in the design and user-friendliness. The developers of the RECARO Exo have taken inspiration from the automotive sector and adopted elements of motorsport. 

The optimised seat shell is reminiscent of the car seat of a racing car and the cold foam is the embodiment of comfort.

Furthermore, nothing should be left to chance during assembly. The customer should not be confronted with countless individual parts when opening the packaging. User-friendly gaming chairs are shipped almost ready for use and can be assembled in just a few steps.

Freedom of movement from head to toe

Everyone is different and a gaming chair should take that into account. A good and ergonomic seat can be infinitely adjusted to the appropriate height. Accordingly, the chair is suitable for people of all sizes. While short people can comfortably rest their feet on the floor, tall gamers prevent the collision of knees and chin.

But it's not just the legs and feet that should have sufficient freedom of movement. The arms should also be able to make themselves comfortable. Thanks to the adjustable multifunction armrests, the distance to the seat, the height and the position of the armrests can be varied. Depending on your physical features and personal preferences, the armrests can be adjusted.

Flexibility – between statics and dynamics

The human body needs support, but should also be kept in motion. This is ensured by gaming chairs that are equipped with the swing position. 

With their help, the seat can be tilted forward and backward and contributes to back health. If you are looking for less dynamics and more statics, you should look for models that also offer fixed seating positions. The RECARO Exo has four seat settings:

  1. The “Attack” position
  2. The “Core Focus” position
  3. "Core Relax" position
  4. The “Recharge” position

Premium design

The design of the gaming chair is a matter of taste. While some gamers crave a minimalist design that integrates perfectly into the living room, extroverted gamers crave something eye-catching. When it comes to our gaming chairs, it's up to you: colourful and eye-catching or elegant understatement?
