   Just like with every other gaming peripheral in the market gaming chair sales have seriously taken off and although as stated many times in the past their target audience is vastly different compared to ergonomic models there are many people out there who consider them to be just as good (because of that it's not a surprise that some gaming chairs often find their way into offices). Since at the end of the day however we are basically talking about yet another gaming peripheral gaming chairs really have to adhere to three very simple rules and so they need to look great, feel great and be very comfortable. Still not all gaming chairs tick all three boxes and so we're always looking for the best models we can get our hands on to test and report our findings to all of you. One such model is the brand new Solitude Gaming and Working Chair by AKRacing which we've been using since mid-January.


   AKRacing is 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, AKRacing gaming chairs have quickly become the smart choice across the eSport scene. Our close ties with top eSports teams such as Team Astralis have given us the leading edge in meeting the durability and comfort requirements of gaming professionals everywhere.


   Due to their rather elegant looks the brand new Solitude line of gaming chairs is obviously also aimed towards office so if you're looking for lively colors this is not the chair for you since currently the Solitude is available in black and brown (which we will be talking about today), black and silver and black and white color combinations. Just like many of its brothers the Solitude features a PU leather cover, metal frame for increased durability, good amount of foam padding (55kg/m3 for the seat and 50kg/m3 for the backrest), adjustable armrests (height, front/back and rotation), premium 65mm caster wheels, class-4 gaslift (supports up to 150kg total including the top body of the chair), height adjusting mechanism, 5 star aluminum base, removable neck and back pillows, backrest adjustment (up to roughly 170 degrees - AKRacing states 180 degrees but just like with other manufacturers that's probably including tilt) and up to 12 degrees tilt function. In terms of size the Solitude line is actually one of the largest gaming chairs to ever reach our lab since it features a very tall (90cm) and wide (58cm) backrest along with a very wide (55cm) and deep (50cm) seat.
