   If you're spending countless hours per week sitting in front of your PC screen either at work or at home then you should know very well that owning an ergonomic desk chair can make all the difference in the world when it comes to back and neck pain. For good or bad when i first started spending many hours in front of my PC screen (back in the early 90's) the only "ergonomic" chairs were huge office/work ones which aside taking lots of space also happened to cost as much as a good gaming rig. Today things are vastly superior to back then in pretty much every segment of the market so gamers can now get their hands on ergonomic chairs without having to worry about how they look or just how much space they need. Still although these models excel both in design and features not many can actually go up against the office/work chairs we had back in the day when it comes to quality so when AK Racing send their ONYX Deluxe Real Leather Gaming Chair a comparison was unavoidable.


   AK Racing are one of the world’s premier gaming chair manufacturers, producing the highest quality products that are available today. With a focus on ergonomics, design and functionality, AK Racing gaming chairs have quickly become the smart choice across the eSport scene. Our close ties with top eSports teams such as Team Dignitas have given us the leading edge in meeting the durability and comfort requirements of gaming professionals everywhere.


   The ONYX Deluxe is partially dressed in high quality flame retardant grain leather (front area - rear is dressed in PU faux leather) so right from the get go it's quite clear that we're talking about one of the highest quality gaming chairs in the market today. That aside the ONYX Deluxe comes packing all the features we've seen by high-end models including a steel frame for improved durability and support, 55Kg/M3 cold cured foam density for the seat and 50Kg/M3 for the backrest, class-4 gaslift (supports up to 150Kg - upper chair body included), 65mm caster wheels, 3D armrests (height, rotation and position), 5-star aluminum base, height adjustable seat (48cm-56cm), removable neck and back pillows, backrest adjustment (up to 160 degrees - AK Racing states 180 degrees but just like with other manufacturers that's obviously including the tilt function) and up to 18 degrees tilt function. So is the ONYX Deluxe by AK Racing the ideal gaming/work chair for you? Let's find out.
