CORSAIR Launches T3 RUSH Gaming Chair

CORSAIR, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced the newest addition to its lineup of premium gaming chairs: the T3 RUSH. Offering contoured comfort with a breathable soft fabric exterior, highly adjustable 4D armrests and seat back, and an immensely durable solid steel frame, the T3 RUSH puts you in the driver's seat of your desktop gaming setup with three colors from which to choose.

The T3 RUSH, like the T1 RACE and T2 ROAD WARRIOR before it, features a striking design inspired by professional motorsports. The T3 RUSH is the first gaming chair from CORSAIR to feature a soft fabric exterior, which retains minimal heat for cool and comfortable gaming all day and night. An adjustable padded neck cushion and memory foam lumbar pillow support the neck and back, both wrapped in plush microfiber.
Adjustability is key for a modern gaming chair, allowing users to find the comfort-sweet-spot unique to them. The T3 RUSH's 4D armrests can be adjusted in any direction to conform to your desired arm positions, while the seat back is capable of going from fully upright to laying flat with 180° of reclining range, as well as 10° of lockable seat tilt. With a class 4 gas lift boasting 100 mm of adjustable seat height, the T3 RUSH provides a seat that is as adjustable as it is comfortable.

An embedded solid steel frame runs through the base and back of the T3 RUSH, ensuring sturdy support that can weather countless years of use. A set of five 65 mm heavy-duty dual wheel casters, capable of gliding smoothly over most floor surfaces, give you the freedom to move around your setup and the stability to stay firmly in place when the action gets heavy.

Inspired by racing, built for gaming - the new CORSAIR T3 RUSH offers a luxuriously comfortable seat for gamers to sit back, settle in, and command in comfort.

Availability and Warranty
The CORSAIR T3 RUSH Gaming Chair is available immediately from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and dibutors.

The T3 RUSH is backed by a two-year warranty and the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network.

same here. All I get is a 404. When I went to the main page, under Gaming Chairs section, I only see T1 Race & T2 Road Warrior chairs. Haven't update their site yet I think. =/

found a typo: "dibutors" should be "distributor".

If you're going to spend hundreds and thousands on PC equipment and umpteen hours a day at your desk, do yourself a favour and treat your back to a proper chair.

Time to clean your glasses, they're a world leader, not industry leader, it's a world of a difference...
I guess Trump has rubbed off on them, it being an American company and all...

If you're overweight and/or simply big and you spend a lot of time in front of your computer this type of gaming chair is actually a solid, durable option. Office chairs with similar features and metal structure quickly approach the same price. High quality office chairs cost more. I own a DXRacer that looks exactly like that (...), the thing is built like a tank.

I for one dislike office chairs.
I need a chair thats not fully leather/fake leather covered or any material that can stick to me during summer as I sweat easily,has either no arm rest or fully adjustable/removable.

My brother has an office chair and I could not spend 5 minutes in it let alone hours,sure most gaming chairs don't suit my needs either but I can still find one easier and cheaper than any office chair that suits my needs.
Planning to buy one sometime next year actually in the ~150-180$ price range.

Every gaming chair is made by the same few factories in China. Every basic feature is exactly the same. They offer no lumbar support and are not rated for long sitting hrs. A good proper office chair will run you a minimum of $300-$400 that you can sit on for more than 8hrs without fatigue.

Sorry, just no. And these aren't cheap. There are so much better chairs you can get that are better for you to sit in.

Oh, I don't do pleather chairs either, they're nasty. But there are far better chairs than something that looks like it's straight out of a 90's rally car...
I need something that can be properly adjusted and that's actually comfortable to sit in. Wish I could afford a Herman Miller Aeron, we had those at my previous job and they're amazingly comfortable.
I'm considering getting one of these for my next chair, as it's quite hot and humid where I live. This is sort of a poor mans Aeron I guess...

I didn't say they were cheap. But I couldn't find anything similarly built for a comparable price where I live (Bulgaria) and my two previous chairs were in order 1. too big, too cheap w/ no adjustment options and 2. better quality, but too flimsy for my weight. The model you show reminds me of the 2nd one I bought and I'd be very surprised if it's rated for my weight. In that context you can do worse than a DXRacer King. There is something to be said about a chair weighing what feels like 20 kg.

I have had countless office chairs, some gaming chairs, and even a couple of those "executive style" chairs over the past 25 years. They have ranged from the $49 Office Depot specials to $300'ish range. Each and every one of them eventually caused the same exact problem in my hips and lower back. Some would break down and cause issue sooner than others, some lasted a few years, but ultimately they all did it. After my last one went in the trash a few years ago I begrudgingly bit the bullet and bought an Aeron with the optional PostureFit attachment and a headrest for my home office. And I can remember the just how disgusted I was looking at that price while clicking the 'buy' button. I can say absolutely that I have zero regrets, and it has paid for itself in full just from the fact that it has completely alleviated my hip/lower spine issues. So really I just wanted to reply and say, if you have thought about getting one, just figure out a way to save the extra $$ and do it. I know that thought sucks, and it's really easy for someone that isn't footing the bill to tell you to spend more.... but if you do sit for hours per day, you have to look at it as a long term investment into the health of your back/spine, and not an investment into a material object. Also to your post, as I type this on lunch break at work I am sitting on an Aeron knockoff and can say 100% that it's not the same (at least this particular one). I have had to resort to adding an orthopedic seat cushion on it. It helps a great deal, but its still not the same as an Aeron. BTW, I'm 6'-0" 190ish to give some perspective. This may be a bit tubby for the non-US readers, but I'm not so big that I'm crushing myself under my own weight.

Gaming chairs are like gaming headsets. They separate people who have too much money from their money and give them shoddy products in return. I'm actually quite shocked we haven't seen MORE chairs that have LED's. They probably can't figure out how to wire them without the wires tearing and asking people to recharge their chairs on the charging pad may be a bridge too far?

Seriously, you can't tell me any of these chairs are for "gaming" if they are lacking something as basic as RGB...

The Aeron chair was remastered not long ago, so the older variants are undergoing liquidation by office supply etailers everywhere - $400 to $500. Search "aeron chair" and grab a classic. :)

I'm glad there is so much anti-gaming chair hatred in these forums.

Gaming chairs are terrible chairs.
Race drivers don't sit in bucket seats when they're not in their cars. Bucket seats are restrictive straightjackets designed to limit the human body from moving around under extreme g-forces. They compromise comfort, ergonomics, ventilation, freedom and flexibility to excel at one thing and one thing only: TRAPPING your body into one, bolt-upright position.

If you do not understand why this is terrible for a chair you will spend tens of thousands of hours in, then I suggest you read about it. You know, because you are going to spend hundreds of thousands of hours in a chair over the next couple of decades and even if you can't feel it right now, you are damaging your bones and joints. Trust us when we say that future you will appreciate present you not buying a dumb chair.

I just hope this gaming chair fad dies out soon enough.
Suggestions here are good.

Get an Eames knockoff-mesh chair,
Get a discount/refurb HM Aeron,
Get a low-budget 24-hour ergonomic task chair.
Jesus, just learn to sit properly on a wooden stool, even.
For the love of all that is sacred, just don't buy a G4M3R-bling, Chinese imitation racing car bucket seat on castor wheels.
