Looks

DXRacer Racing Series DOH/RW106/NR Newedge Edition Review 3I personally enjoy the design of most of the DXRacer gaming chairs. Although I wouldn’t call myself a huge fan of this particular model or, to be precise, the layout of the color red, it does look pretty great in general.

As is a case with most of this brand’s chairs, they have a very unique and sporty looking seat design. Designed after racing car seats it is what makes them so attractive. With this particular model, far extruding edges and round curves of the seat give this chair a sturdy & buff look. The proportions are just right and go well with straight armrests.

Following to make it more aggressive you have mean-red color classic layout. All of the edges are outlined with red making it more complete. Furthermore, there are little red footrests on each of the legs that carry the theme color over to the bottom part.

Overall design of the chair is close to exceptional and there is not much to be done to improve it. If there is something I find to be missing in this design is the “edgy” color pattern some of the other DXRacers have but it’s purely subjective.

Performance & Longevity

Longevity and general material quality is not be questioned if we are talking about DXRacers. If nothing else they are definitely super high quality chairs as they only use the highest quality materials available to build them.

This model has a 50 kg/m³ high density foam which is around the same as your everyday car seat. In addition to that, the seat used for this chair is actually a patent race car seat what just states how long you can expect the seat to maintain its original form. As for the frame, it is made from tubular steel and has a life-time warranty on it.

The base is made from nylon and it isn’t breaking anytime soon as nylon is apparently flexible and quite sturdy. However, if you are well over the max user weight, the flexible properties of nylon might backfire. I heard of one case where over the time it bent to the point where the middle touched the floor. Though the person in question was way over the max weight limit.

As for the casters, instead of normal cheap PVC ones this chair has them made of PU. They are a lot more durable and much smoother in action so you do not need to worry about changing them anytime soon. They are also better for your flooring.

Cover materials used for this model is PU and strong mesh. PU is a lot more durable than PVC but is nonetheless at risk of wearing. With this chair however, there isn’t any need to worry about that at all. In addition to high quality PU , the spots that usually are under the most stress are covered with strong mesh instead. Rest of the spots that don’t naturally suffer from friction as much are covered in PU what almost completely removes the chances of PU wearing.

Take a peek at how one of their chairs look from the inside.

Comfort

If your sizes are close to recommended and not over the max capacity of the chair – it’s extremely comfortable. Seats made from cold cure high-density foam make it really easy to sit on for countless continuous hours. Furthermore, it has 3D adjustable armrests that you can tweak to your exact liking. This R-Series also reclines in case you are in need of a power nap. What’s more, it can also tilt down to 17 degrees what’s a good addition if you want a little freedom with your gaming chair. To top it all off, it has little footrests on each of the leg to deal with people’s restlessness. In case that wasn’t enough, lumbar support and headrest cushions complete the picture.

Likely the very definition of comfortable. DXRacer plays it smart by making each of their series fit to a different height and weight ranges, thus, making all of their chairs fit you just perfectly.

Healthiness

Healthy gaming is also one of DXRacer’s fortes. They design their chairs ergonomically so you can game longer without giving yourself a back, wrist or neck pains or even something more permanent.

Going into details, the uniquely shaped seat is where all the secrets to healthy gaming lie. It is shaped and measured so you remain comfortable and don’t get tired while sitting in correct posture. But that’s not all. High-back backrest isn’t just for style. It functions as a solution to neck/spine pain. In addition to that, there are adjustable armrests that prevent you from getting wrist/arm pain. And if that wasn’t enough, you can use adjustable lumbar support and headrest cushions, this model comes with, to increase the healthy factor.

Ease of Use and Assembly

Assembling this chair is a child’s play and usually won’t take longer then 10 minutes. All of the levers and buttons are right where you’d imagine they’d be so it’s very easy to get used to.

Only thing that might prove to be somewhat of a problem is cleaning this chair. Unlike PU and PVC that are very easy to take care of, mesh is harder to tend to and might require some extra effort in removing the stains.

Value for Price

The value you get for the price is close to best. Being only slightly more expensive than the most affordable F-Series it offers capability of handling bigger people and 3D straight armrests. It doesn’t have any unnecessarilly sturdy installed in order to improve the looks so you are only paying for pure quality.

All in All

DXRacer Racing Series DOH/RW106/NR Newedge Edition is likely the best “Value for Price” gaming chair I’ve ever seen. Tough, good looking, very comfortable to use for long periods of time and yet very healthy. A bit more spacious than other racing series chairs so you have some room to roam. Easy to use despite many adjustable functions. One of the best affordable luxury gaming chairs out there.
