Overview - Up close and personal
Like the name would suggest the Nitro Concepts E200 Race is designed to deliver a racing style aesthetic, with this particular model looking great with its discrete black design and red seams with the carbon fibre styled bolsters coming together to deliver what is truly a beautiful chair.
The Carbon model that we have for review comes with a very neutral aesthetic, not drawing too much attention to itself but looking very impressive to the eye when you look at it up close.
The majority of the chair is covered with PU faux leather, with the main base and squad of the chair being finely perforated for increased breathability, which will come in handy when you work or game during hot weather. The lateral supports of the chair use a carbon fibre effect material, adding to the chair's racing themed aesthetic.
Nitro Concept's design if first and foremost about ergonomics, building upon the tired and proven 360-degree swivel chair design to offer users with a great deal of comfort and a reliable design. Users of this chair can lean back by tp to 15-degrees, with the rocking mechanism being adjustable via a control knob at the bottom of the seat and activated via a lever at the side of the chair.
Using the chair's right-hand side lever the chair's height can also be adjusted using the chair's safety class 4 gas lift, which is able to hold the moss of the chair and a user that weighs up to 120kg.
With the E200 Race, the armrests are firmly attached to the rear of the chair and sit at a height that is designed to suit most users when sat at a desk or when lounging with a gamepad.
These armrests are attached to the rear of the chair with three bolts each and lacks any form of customizability, though to be honest, you can't expect any more from a chair that costs less than £200.
The base of the chair is made from black nylon and is equipped with five 50mm diameter casters, which are PV coated and are designed to match your chair's accent colour, with the red casters on their chair matching up with the chair's red seams.
All in all the E200 does everything that you would expect from a gaming chair, with firm yet supportive padding, a sturdy frame and a high-quality aesthetic.
