CORSAIR Launches T1 RACE Gaming Chair

CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the launch of its first gaming chair, the T1 RACE. Inspired by racing, crafted for comfort and built to last, the T1 Race joins CORSAIR's award-winning range of mice, keyboards, headsets and mousepads to complete the ultimate gaming experience. Built using a solid steel skeleton and dense foam cushions, the T1 RACE has the strength to ensure a lifetime of sturdiness, while it's 4D-movement armrests raise, lower, shift and swivel to put gamers in the most comfortable position every time. Styled to turn heads and finished with immaculate attention to detail, the T1 RACE is the gaming chair your desk deserves.

Upholstered in luxurious PU leather on seating surfaces and available in five different colors, T1 RACE lets you choose your seat to match your style, in either Yellow, White, Blue, Red or Black trim, finished with automotive color-matched stitching and base accents. Nylon caster wheels, often an optional upgrade on office and gaming chairs, are included with T1 RACE as standard, ensuring stability and smooth movement on any surface.
T1 RACE's sculpted race-seat design and included neck and lumbar PU leather pillows provide adjustable support for day-long gaming sessions, while its 4D-moment armrests effortlessly adjust in height, width, position and angle to put your arms precisely where they need to be. A steel construction Class 4 gas lift provides reliable height adjustment, while the seat itself tilts up to 10° and can recline anywhere between 90° to 180°, lying completely flat for when you need to take a break from the action. Finishing the T1 RACE's attention to detail, the CORSAIR logo is tastefully embroidered into the rear of the chair, and lightly embossed into the headrest for maximum comfort.

In front of a PC there are no G-forces. Maybe for the most emotionally challenged this adds to their gaming experience... :eek:

"luxurious PU leather" this should be punished with jail and high fines. PU is not and never will be leather. it is plastic. imitation at it's best being benevolent.

Idk, I thought the "luxurious" in that statement was the funny part. :laugh: (PU leather already says it's fake)

When ever a company says "racing" I automatically think its junk. Those "racing" seats in cars are some of the most uncomfortable seats there is. They do provide movement support to keep you in place when you car is actually going fast but I dont want to sit on them for more than 10 minutes.

Good think I drive a Prius so I wont be going fast any time soon.

Looks like it's $350 for all the colors
5 chairs for that price isn't a bad deal ;)

Just because Corsair was inspired by a Caseking chair, does not mean that they come from the same factory. I am having my doubts that Caseking would produce such a low-quality chair. ;)

I can understand why this would be a safe assumption for anyone at the consumer end with the amount of companies that now do chairs but noblechairs actually design their own and spent a long time finding a factory that could produce them at the quality they wanted and not just any old factory that would produce them for the lowest possible price. Not all companies do the latter but quite a lot do.

Nope! Just don't want anyone to confuse the two or think they're mutually the same!

Not even functional for a wheel setup either since pressing the pedals would just roll the chair backwards
