Keep reading to learn about 7 top qualities gaming gurus look for in a professional gamer chair.

1. Easy and Reliable Recline

The best gamer chair will allow you to recline as far back as you want. You should be able to lock the chair at the exact position that's perfect for optimum comfort. The ideal range for a gaming chair is between 90 degrees and 155 degrees.

2. Adjustable Armrests

While playing video games, it's important for your arm stance to be comfortable. An improper stance can cause aching and may even cause you to lose the game. This is why 4D adjustable armrests are indispensable. 

3. Lumbar Support

A cheap gaming chair can give you all kinds of health issues over time, including back problems. This is why pro gamers make sure that they have all the lumbar support they could ever need. This can be accomplished using a lumbar pillow that's attached or removable, or cold-formed inner cushioning that supports both your back and sides.

4. High-Quality Materials

Leather is often the most popular material because it's both comfortable and resilient. If you want to be environmentally-friendly, however, then you should opt for PU leather.

5. Smooth Wheels

Pro gamers make sure that their chairs can move with ease. This means your chair will have to use friction-reducing, rubber wheels so that the chair moves as smoothly as a rollerblade.

6. Height Adjustment

Depending on what desk you're seated at, you might need to adjust the height of your chair. That way the screen is aligned with your vision and your legs can fit beneath the desk. Pro gamers use chairs that have a gas lift piston for reliable and solid height adjustment.

7. Style

Rather than being the same as all the others, a gaming chair should reflect your personality. This is why you should go for a chair that allows you to choose between different colour accents, for instance.

The design of the chair itself can also speak a lot about what kind of gamer you either, such as a racing simulator champion or a Call of Duty hero.
