This seems expensive for a fake leather chair even though it's for gaming. I've owned pu leather chairs before and once it starts to Peel and flake its so disgusting and creates a constant mess to Clean up. I bought a steelcase chair a few years back and it still feels like the day I bought it, mind you it was 3x the price but in terms of quality and warranty I'd much rather pay more for something that will last.

As someone who's sitting on a AKRacing right now (higher end model) id say avoid it
Armrests cracked after about a year , they did send me a replacement set and they are still boxed since its only ripped on the sides and stayed like that for the last few years.
The fake leather under my knees on the edge of the seat started ripping after a few years (4 or 5 maybe)

When I bought it one of the main reasons was that most of the ergo chairs had a low weight limit if you didnt pick the version for really large people that costs a lot.
One of the only major pros of those ''gaming'' chairs is the ability to tilt it like a car seat which is nice but thats pretty much it.

If I had to buy another of those chairs I would probably pick the fabric secretlab models but at that price point you're better off getting a good ergo chair.
I lost a bunch of weight so the next one will probably be an ergo model.

Upvote for this. I bought (what I thought was a nice quality) generic leather office chair that's regularly put on sale from Staples and it started to peel, arm rest started to break apart just before the 2 year warranty expired. So I was able to get the warranty replacement parts!
These parts have been breaking apart and peeling once again with a constant mess on the floor. Expecting it to last is a fool's game it will break apart just after the warranty expires. Chairs should last at least 5 years before some wear is evident.
