When it comes to reviewing gaming chairs we always see mixed opinions from our readers. There are plenty of options already out there but more manufacturers are entering the market with their own take on the established racing-style design. In this review we take a look at Sharkoon’s mid-range entry, the Elbrus 2. Priced at £179, it has a lot of useful features for a price undercuts quite a few competitors.

KitGuru says: The Sharkoon Elbrus Chair fills a relatively niche area of the market. It doesn’t have quite the same build quality or comfort as the more premium chairs, but with the attractive design it really does look the part and is more interesting than a standard office chair. We think it’s an option for casual users who want a gaming style chair without breaking the bank.
