ASUS ROG Constructs RGB Chariot Chairs and Ranger Backpacks

The past few years have seen the RGB revolution rage across seemingly all PC components, impacting SSDs, memory, motherboards, graphics cards PSU, cases, cooling solutions and a variety of accessories. 

Love it or hate it, RGB sells, and ASUS' ROG division plans to take RGB lighting to places where it has never been seen before, announcing their ROG Chariot series of Gaming Chairs and ROG Ranger BP3703 series of backpacks. RGB detractors will be glad to know that non-RGB Core versions of these products will also be available. 

Now I know what you're thinking. Why would anyone want RGB lighting on a backpack? Well, the answer is simple, visibility. Whether you are cycling across town in the morning or taking a leisurely stroll in the evening, it is always good to be visible to drivers in the darkness. The ROG Ranger BP3703 uses the company's Aura RGB tech allows the mostly black backpack to remain visible while on the go, utilising an ambient light sensor to control the backpack's brightness. An Android app can also be used to control the backpack's lighting, which can be powered by any USB battery bank. 

Outside of its RGB capabilities, the ROG Ranger BP3703 offers a 20-litre capacity, a removable 17-inch notebook sleeve and an RFID-blocking front pocket to prevent potential wallet skimming scammers from peaking at what's inside. 

The backpack also uses water-repellent materials, keeping its contents dry during unfavourable weather conditions. The backpack also includes waterproofed zips, keeping its contents safe from even the largest of downpours. The backpack has also been designed with a 180-degree zipper opening, allowing the backpack to be used like a suitcase, making it easier to pack a lot of items without risking anything getting crushed. 

At this time ASUS has not revealed the pricing or release timeframe of their ROG Ranger backpack.

Moving on to the ROG Chariot, we can see that ASUS' design is similar to that of other high-end ergonomic gaming chairs, featuring plenty of adjustment options to suit the needs of most users. 

Like most gaming chairs, the ROG Chariot gains a lot of its design elements from the racing world, offering RGB lighting on its deluxe model to add some extra flash to proceedings.

As all quality gaming chairs should, ASUS ROG has kitted out their Chariot with a headrest and lumbar pillows to provide ample support for extended gaming sessions, using memory foam to provide maximum comfort. The chair's armrests also offer options to adjust their height, angle, positioning to suit the needs of most users, while also offering reclining option whenever a break is required.  

The RGB version of this chair can be powered by any USB Type-A battery pack, allowing the chair to be powered without any cables (tripping hazards) coming from the base of the chair. The ROG Chariot Core (Non-RGB) will release in Q1 2019, and the premium ROG Chariot RGB will release on Q2. The pricing for ASUS' ROG Chariot Gaming Chair has not been revealed.

Why have the "Republic of Gamers" light branding where you sit? It will basically never be shown that way. Would've been nicer if they put it on the back instead.

Plus, the redness again. Would've preferred if they did the ROG logos in grey instead, to suit in better with the overall setups that it might be put into. Red will crash more often than a more neutral colour.Quote

Agreed.



Now all they're missing is an RGB table :O I'd love one! Especially if it would be one of those tables where you put your components inside.


Love or hate RGB, I definitely like the backpack! Feels super unnecessary, but since you can turn RGB off - as always - you still have a nice backpack with some useful gimmicks. At least that's what it sounds like. 20 liters sounds massive to me, but I don't know how much I can cram into my current backpack.Quote

Republic of Gimmicks.

I would never in my life want to walk around with that thing on my back. I'd rather have a Bob the builder bag. At least people would know im just joking around then.

The chair looks like they have tried to immitate noble, with their 4D arm rests. If they dropped the colour and logo, or made it far more discreet, it would sell far better.

People know I hate RGB, but these designs are just childish AF.Quote

Pics or it didn't happen! It simply depends on your own taste. Some men wear women's trousers, some use these backpacks.


The 4D arm rests are nothing special, every chair manufacturer I know uses them. RGB is, again, a thing of personal taste. The most important feature is the ability to turn it off and you can do so. I can understand why you hate RGB.Quote
