The Homall Gaming Chair using a racing style seat, a strong metal frame, and comfortable PU leather to provide great comfort.

The Gtplayer from GTRACING features full, adaptable armrests, a complete recline with footrest, and massaging lumbar support. Normally, reclining chairs don’t provide for full wrist-to-back arm rests as they would prevent reclining altogether. However, the Gtplayer uses a special linkage armrest system with multiple rolling joints. As you recline, so does it. And, as you recline, you can pull out the footrest for maximum support and turn on the massaging lumbar pillow via USB connection for maximum comfort. The Gtplayer is ideal for bodies up to 6 foot, 3 inches tall and weighing up to 300 pounds.

The Arozzi Mugello is a gaming chair with a full armrest, pneumatic height adjustment, and an adjustable/removable neck support pillow.

With subtle red stitching that matches the exterior accent colors, the overall look hints at the luxury of the best office chairs, while still presenting itself as a verifiable gaming chair.

It has highly adjustable 4D armrests and 80 to 140 degree reclining on the backrest, but the main highlights for this chair are its materials. Of course there is the steel frame and aluminum alloy base, but that’s nothing too special.

Next, the ultra premium high resilience (UPHR) foam which withstands 62% more weight than standard HR foam and is close to memory foam in durability. Finally, the coffee ground infused microfiber with silver embroidery on key parts of the chair resist bacteria, limit odor, and increase breathability.
