Gaming Chairs - the Buying Guide by Joule Performance Switzerland
Sitting for extended periods can lead to long-term physical problems - this applies to both work and gaming. According to studies, gamers spend about four hours a day in front of the PC. The sitting time can increase to up to 9 hours due to other activities (and which gamer hasn't sat much longer at times?). Therefore, it is important to have an appropriate gaming chair to protect your back and joints.
This is where Joule Performance's gaming chairs come into play. In this buying guide, you will learn everything you need to know to find the perfect chair for your next extended gaming adventure.
What advantages does a specialized gaming chair have?
There are countless variations of desk chairs. Gaming chairs are not just simple seating furniture. They are tailored for gamers and offer numerous advantages:
- Ergonomics: Gaming chairs are designed to support your natural body posture and adapt to your body shape and preferences. This means less back pain, fewer tensions, and more comfort, even during long gaming sessions.
- Features: These specialized chairs often come with features like adjustable armrests, tilt functions, and height adjustability to tailor them to your individual needs.
- Stability: Gaming chairs are robust and stable, essential for intense gaming sessions and long-term durability. No more worries about your chair giving way when you dive into the action.
- Appearance: Unlike boring office chairs, gaming chairs are not only functional but also stylish. They add a cool look to your gaming area and complete your gaming setup!
What do you need to consider when buying a gaming chair?
The selection of gaming chairs is vast, and at Joule Performance, you'll find various models. To ensure you find the right gaming chair for you, you should consider several aspects:
- Height and Weight: Before making a purchase, check the maximum weight capacity and recommended height specifications. Ensure that the chair fits your body size so that the supportive elements for your back and neck are in the right places. You should be able to sit comfortably with your feet flat on the ground.
- Adjustability: Your chair should offer a variety of adjustment options, including height adjustment, backrest adjustment, and 4D armrests. Achieving a right angle between your arms and legs is ideal.
- Support Function: A high-quality chair provides support for your back and neck to prevent tension. A good gaming chair will have appropriate support features, including a neck rest or pillow. A movable lumbar cushion for your spine offers additional comfort.
- Material of the Gaming Chair: Nowadays, there is a wide range of different designs and materials, as well as material combinations for gaming chairs. Each has its pros and cons, which are explained below.
- Quality: Gaming chairs come in various price ranges. Prioritize quality over aesthetics. A high-quality chair with good padding and ergonomics can prevent back pain. After considering the essential aspects (size, adjustability, support function), you can look for your visual favorite. This way, you'll find a gaming chair that fits your budget and is good for your back.
What material is ideal for your gaming chair?
From fabric to exotic leather, gaming chairs come with upholstery in various materials and material combinations. They differ in appearance, texture, durability, and maintenance requirements. You'll need to decide which one is ideal for you:
Gaming Chairs with Fabric Upholstery:
- Advantages: Fabric is affordable and breathable. It offers a wide range of color choices. It's suitable for pet owners as fabric is more forgiving of minor scratches, such as those from cat paws, compared to smooth materials like PU or genuine leather.
- Disadvantages: Gaming chairs with fabric upholstery require more effort in cleaning compared to leather covers. Lower-quality fabric can wear out quickly.
Gaming Chairs with PU Synthetic Leather Upholstery:
- Advantages: PU synthetic leather is easy to maintain, resistant to abrasion, and more cost-effective than real leather. It provides a similar look and feel to leather and comes in various colors.
- Disadvantages: It's less breathable than fabric and may be less durable than genuine leather with daily intense use.
Gaming Chairs with Genuine Leather Upholstery:
- Advantages: Genuine leather is durable, breathable, and offers unparalleled luxury. It ages gracefully, developing a unique appearance over time. It's particularly comfortable for extended sitting.
- Disadvantages: Genuine leather is more expensive and requires more maintenance compared to PU synthetic leather.
Gaming Chairs with Alcantara Upholstery:
- Advantages: Highly durable and robust, Alcantara is often used in luxury cars. It provides warmth in winter and coolness in summer compared to leather. It's easy to clean and scratch-resistant, with a pleasant soft texture.
- Disadvantages: Alcantara is more expensive than traditional fabric or PU leather covers.
