We all rant and rave about our components, who has the best keyboard or fastest graphics card, but we neglect what we use the most; the chair. Personally I have two, both costing well under £100 each, but of massively different build qualities. Something that these ‘racing’ chairs hope to bring is bucket seat comfort and support to our gaming sessions.
Haven’t heard of Vertagear before now? Don’t worry, I didn’t either. The company has just three seats available, the budget orientated SL2000, mainstream SL4000 and executive SL5000. They each come under the S-Line brand and roughly look the same with key differences to design and overall size.
If you are interested and not quite sure of your measurements, why not check out the Chair Selection Tool.
I personally have my reservations because bucket seats are meant to be firm and supportive to defy G-forces in corners, how will it stand to hours of sitting still in front of a computer? Let’s find out.
