Materials

The RESPAWN 110 uses high-grade PU leather and high-density foam. The whole design looks like a hybrid of an office and racing chair which makes it look very unique.

Comfort

It is fluffy enough to make it a second bed but the star of the show here is the footrest that you can bring up and down depending on how you want to play your games.

Assembly

Easy enough for players who are used to gaming chairs but may take some time for the newbies. However, the manual is easily readable.

What We Would Buy

In the end, the E-WIN Racing Chair is best in overall performance as the best big and tall gaming chair. But if you want a budget seat but with high value, get the Vitesse Gaming chair or the Homall Ergonomic. Need a large-sized gaming chair, the DXRacer Tank Series will fit your criteria. Need a lightweight gaming chair that feels like feather when sat on? The RESPAWN 110 is a good choice.
