Best DXRacer Gaming Chairs – Full Buying Guide

In the market of gaming chairs, DXRacer is second to none. DXRacer’s lineup is by far the most well known and popular gaming chairs in the world.

Though DXRacer produces quality ergonomic gaming chairs, don’t expect to be satisfied by just buying a random chair with a DXRacer logo. To make the most of your money, choose the DXRacer chair that best fits you weight, height, and stylistic preferences. There isn’t much reliable information about this from the internet or retailers, so we will try our best to inform you about the specific characteristics of each DXRacer chair with an easy to read reviews of each series. I’ll end the intro – here is our full guide. DXRacer chairs are some of the highest quality chairs, make sure to read these great reviews to understand your needs, desires and picks for a good DXRacer chair.

Characteristics Common to All DXRacer Chairs

No matter what DXRacer chair you buy, there will always be several unique features found across the board on every single DXRacer chair sold.

CharacteristicDetails
Ergonomic Design:Each DXRacer chair has a unique ergonomic design that allows the user to seat comfortably for hours on end
Huge Recline Range:Most DXRacer chairs allow for a recline of up to 135° in twelve steps
Adjustable Height:Height adjustment on a DXRacer chair is smooth and easy
Metal Frame:Hidden inside each DXRacer chair is steel support system capable of supporting hundreds of pounds
Footrest Legs:Each of the five legs of a DXRacer chair can act as a footrest
Lumbar and Headrest Cushions:Headrest and lumbar cushions on most DXRacer chairs (not shown in pictures) allow for a more pleasant user experience

I should say to any potential DXRacer customers that these chairs are probably a lot firmer than one would expect – they’re ergonomic, but not plushy. DXRacer chairs are built for performance, not relaxation.


Our Picks for the Best DXRacer Gaming Chairs


DXRacer Formula Series

DXRacer Formula Series

The DXRacer Formula Series is the first DXRacer chair – the type you’ve probably seen on E-sports the most. It’s designed for the average gamer who stands at around 5′ 7″ – 5’10” and weighs under 180 pounds. The Formula Series comes in both fabric and faux leather and though its the baseline chair of the DXRacer brand, it comes with all the unique features and characteristics that have made DXRacer the go-to brand for gaming chairs.

DXRacer Racing Series

DXRacer Racing Series

Virtually all of the DXRacer chairs designed for the average body type are built on a modification of the Formula Series in some way. The Racing Series provides a wider seat for users that required additional width. This chair still has the recommended weight limit add around 200 pounds, so if you weigh a lot more than that, consider going for the larger King or Sentinel Series.

DXRacer Origin Series

DXRacer Origin Series

If you have a lighter build, the Formula or Drifting Series could be slightly excessive, though DXRacer says that you’re fine as long as you’re not too big for the chair. The Origin Series is the smallest chair DXRacer sellers and is targeted at people under 5’9″ and 180 pounds. Since it’s the smallest chair, the Origin is also the cheapest DXRacer chair by quite a bit, but you won’t get all the bells and whistles like on the Classic Series.

DXRacer King Series

DXRacer King Series

As you can probably assume from the name, the DXRacer King Series is a large chair designed for large people. Though it’s not even close to the largest seat the company offers, it’s still pretty big. The chair is designed to seat up to a 6’2″ 300 pound gamer. There isn’t much to say about the King Series since its effectively an expanded Formula Series chair.

DXRacer Sentinel Series

DXRacer Sentinel Series

The Sentinel Series is a relatively versatile gaming chair, being able to accommodate all weights and body types as long as you’re pretty tall. This versatility can be especially useful when it’s shared. However, these chairs are on the expensive side so don’t buy it unless you’re a perfect fit for it. The chair is designed to take tall people (up to 6’6″) and has a weight capacity of around 350 pounds.

DXRacer Drifting Series

DXRacer Drifting Series

DXRacer calls the Drifting Series a “Performance Chair” – it’s looks much more like a high-end office chair than a gaming chair. The Drifting Series will fit more or less the exact same body type the Formula Series does – around 5’9 and 170 pounds. However, if you willing to pay a few more dollars for a more professional design, the Drifting Series is a great option. It also has the bonus of having more cushioning than the standard Formula Series.

DXRacer Iron Series

DXRacer Iron Series

The new DXRacer Iron Series is basically a beefed up version of the Drifting Series. As a premium model, its an improvement in nearly every department, with larger cushions, a new aluminum base frame, and armrests that have a literally nearly unlimited range of motions on the xyz plane. If you’re too heavy or tall for the Drifting Series, you’re probably in luck because the recommended height and weight limited goes up to 6’2″ and 275 pounds for the Iron Series. Be sure to look for a good gaming desk as well to complement this chair.

DXRacer Classic Series

DXRacer Classic Series

Made for those who don’t like the overtly gaming themed chairs, the DXRacer Classic Series is a gaming chair that looks more like a standard office chair with lots of plush. In fact, DXRacer actually classifies the Classic Series as an “Office Chair”. That’s probably going a bit too far, as it’s still clearly a gaming chair. Still, the Classic Series has a distinctively different feel from the nearly every other DXRacer chair, feeling much more like an office chair. The Classic Series is a relatively large chair, designed for people up to 5’11” and 250 pounds (recommended).

DXRacer Boss Series

The DXRacer Boss Series is nearly identical to the Classic Series, except its even larger. The chair has a recommended hight limit of 6’2″ and a weight limit of 425 pounds. This is a great chair for comfort while you are gaming on  your amazing gaming monitor.
