New Corsair gaming chairs built for speed AND comfort

17 May 2017

Corsair, known for their memory, PC components and high-end gaming hardware today announced the launch of the first ever Corsair gaming chair, the T1 Race.  

Corsair says the chair is “Inspired by racing, crafted for comfort and built to last.” The T1 Race joins Corsair’s huge range of mice, keyboards, headsets and mousepads, and Corsair believes it now offers a truly complete gaming experience.

Built using a steel skeleton and foam cushions, the T1 Race is built with durability in mind, and offers a “lifetime of sturdiness”. Its 4D-movement armrests raise, lower, shift and swivel to allow gamers to find their perfect level of comfort.

Upholstered in leather on seating surfaces and available in five different colors, the T1 Race allows you to pick your style. It comes 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 by default and provide more stability and smoother movement than normal wheels.

The racing seat design and included neck and lumbar pillows provide adjustable support for extended gaming sessions. A steel construction gas lift provides 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.” We’ve all been there, right?

The T1 RACE Gaming Chair is available immediately from the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers.
