The DXRacer Air Series is a great chair for long gaming sessions. It features many highly adjustable parts, such as 4D armrests and high-quality mesh covering. However, the seat height adjustability is limited to only 2 inches.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The DXRacer Air Series launched in July 2023. Its design allows gamers to customize various components like armrests, headrests, and lumbar support. The armrests are highly adjustable in four directions, offering support that rivals some of the best office chairs.

Meanwhile, the backrest has a reclining range of 90 to 135 degrees, and the seat height adjusts two inches, from 19 – 21 inches, which isn’t as good as some of the best gaming chairs out there. It’s also built with a robust aluminum base; the chair can support up to 250 lbs and users up to 6’6” in height.

Consensus

our Verdict

The DXRacer Air Series was built with long gaming sessions in mind, as it’s sturdy, adjustable, and comfy. The seat has an impressive 135-degree recline angle, allowing gamers to sit way back. It also features 4D armrests with 6 inches of upward and downward mobility. However, it only provides 2 inches of seat height adjustment, which is on the lower end for a gaming chair.

Build-wise, the chair is sturdy and uses a high-quality mesh covering. The covering promotes breathability, which prevents overheating. Also, the lumbar support fits a wide range of heights, as it’s adjustable on the back. In terms of size, the chair is also impressive, as it caters to users up to 6 feet 6 inches and 250 pounds and has a seat that measures 19″ x 20″.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Good Ergonomics and Adjustability
    • The DXRacer Air Series allows users to sit at more relaxing angles, given it reclines all the way back to 135 degrees. It also has a moveable headrest to support various heights.

    • The chair features padded 4D armrests, providing about 6 inches of moveability up and down.

  • Adjustable Lumbar Support
    • The integrated adjustable lumbar support system provides excellent back support, adapting to various body shapes and sizes.

  • Sturdy Build Quality
    • The chair withstands heavy use. There are no wobbles, and the entire thing feels structurally sound and well-built. Additionally, the mesh covering provides good breathability, which helps prevent overheating during long gaming sessions.

  • Impressive size
    • The chair offers good size, catering to a wide range of body types because the seat measures 19″ x 20″ and has a backrest measuring 21.5″ (W) x 34.5.

    • The chair is marketed to fit people up to 6 feet 6 inches and a weight of 250 pounds.

Reason to Avoid

  • Limited Seat Height Adjustability
    • Gamers won’t have the option to adjust their seat height much, given the chair only allows for 2” of adjustment, which sits between 19-21 inches.

Compared to the DXRacer Formula Series gaming chairs, the DX Racer Air Series caters to larger people. The seat width of the Formula Series is only 15×18 inches, while the Air Series is a larger 19×20. Additionally, the Air series provides an additional 50 pounds of weight capacity, holding 250 lbs, compared to the Formula Series’ 200. However, the Formula series has superior seat height adjustability, offering 4 inches of adjustment, and the Air series only gives 2 inches.

The EasySMX Big and Tall chair is specifically designed for larger users, offering a higher weight capacity of up to 350 lbs compared to the DXRacer’s 250 lbs. The Easy SMX features a wider seat and backrest. In terms of height adjustment, both chairs offer similar flexibility, but the DXRacer stands out with its 4D adjustable armrests and customizable components like lumbar support and seat material, which the Easy SMX lacks. The DXRacer’s use of breathable mesh material also enhances its ergonomic design, offering better airflow and comfort during extended gaming sessions. We also have a great Corsair TC200 review.

The Razer Iskur has a more adjustable lumbar support system and tailored lower back support, a more generalized feature in the DXRacer Air Series. While the DXRacer focuses on breathability with its mesh material, the Iskur opts for high-density foam cushioning covered in multi-layered synthetic leather, which is more cushiony but leads to overheating. The Razer Iskur also holds more weight — around 300 lbs for Iskur and 250 lbs for DXRacer. However, the DXRacer stands out with its 4D adjustable armrests and customizable components, enhancing ergonomic personalization. Also, be sure to check out our Neuechair Obsidian review.
