[Amazon.ca] Playseat Challenge Racing Video Game Chair $293.71

Best price of the year according to triple camels, not lowest ever (ive seen $250 regularly enough) but a great price given this item has been out of stock most of this pandemic at the standard price of $320ish. Warmish deal, hot for the right person given the availability.

Great sim racing chair for small spaces, i am typing this sitting in mine and am very pleased with the purchase, some wobble with stronger wheels but totally manageable, and the biggest perk is that the whole thing folds away into my closet in less than 5 minutes. Quite comfortable as well.

In other words, this chair is anti overweight people, you need to be somewhat slim as a pre-requisite to buy this.

How does this wheel handle a basic wheel like the G25 in terms of stand movement? Anyone use this with it?

A G25 should have zero issues.
A Direct-Drive wheel on the other hand would most likely tear one of these apart.
I'd say that the MAX this could handle would be a Fanatec CSW 2.5, and even that would be pushing it.
This is an ideal cockpit for something like a Thrustmaster T300 / TX / T150 / TMX or a Logi G29 or G920.

It would also be great for flight sims using a simple Flight Stick or AIO HOTAS...Star Wars :SQUADRONS in VR would be a blast while sitting in this.

While the price is extremely lukewarm (it used to sell for $225 from costco delivered) the playseat challenge itself is a wonderful chair especially for anyone in a smaller space. I’m just moving on to a new rig but I would never get rid of my challenge as it’s such a useful unit.

I would agree that anyone using anything less than a fanatec CSW 2.5 will have no issues using the challenge.
