Nitro Concepts E200 Race Chair Review

Rating: 8.5.

Back in June, we took a look at the Epic Real Leather gaming chair from noblechairs. While we deemed it worthy of an award, it comes with a hefty £450 price tag. What if you want a decent, racer-style chair without breaking the bank? Priced at £167.99, that is where the Nitro Concepts E200 Race-series chair comes in.

£170 still may sound a fair bit of money for a gaming-style chair – but for a properly comfy and good-quality office chair, you can often spend hundreds more. In the great scheme of things, under £170 is decent for a chair like the E200. It does do away with some features common to more luxurious chairs to meet the lower price point, though – as there is no ability to recline, nor are there adjustable armrests. Still, a chair is a chair so let us dive right in.
