While many are still expecting an influx of RGB gaming chairs, Thermaltake is heading in a different direction all together. Focusing on just how cool your bum could be, the new Thermaltake X Comfort Air is the first gaming chair to sport built-in fans.
Thermaltake lines four fans underneath the X Comfort Air's cushioning, engineered to drag air from below to lightly hit your backside, ultimately cooling you down.
“Use of a special five-fan blade design based on automotive industry tech allows the four built-in cooling fans to generate even greater volumes of air for improved airflow and speed. The use of high-quality components in the fan blade design provides a whopping 75,000-hour lifespan, which is double than that of industry standard and provides utmost performance and reliability,” explains Thermaltake.
The company has designed the fan blades in a wind blocker frame that drags a greater amount of air towards the middle section, preventing air escaping via a compression effect. Your butt won't get too cold, however, as Thermaltake has provided a three-step fan controller to let you adjust the speed to suit you.
In traditional gaming chair-style, the frame is made from steel surrounded by dense foam. On the surface is coloured faux leather for a signature look, paired with breathable mesh to enable the fans.
It's 4D armrests are adjustable, are the extra head and back support. You can also relax with a reclining tilt mechanism, with a locking system.
The Thermaltake X Comfort Air is available now for $500 in two different colours, a black and red version and an all-black variant.
KitGuru Says: I am unsure why this chair has come around in the winter time for a lot of countries, but I can sure see the benefit in the summer. Although, at the very least, it's safe to say that this chair is the biggest fan of your butt. What do you think of the Thermaltake X Comfort Air?
