1 look at five claws
At present, there are basically three types of five-claw materials for chairs: steel, nylon, and aluminum alloy. In terms of cost, aluminum alloy>nylon>steel, but the materials used for each brand are different, and it cannot be said arbitrarily that aluminum alloy is better than steel. When purchasing, it depends on whether the wall material of the five-jaw tube is solid. The five-claw materials of gaming chairs are much wider and stronger than ordinary computer chairs. The five-claws of brand gaming chairs can basically bear more than one ton, which can meet the needs of all users. If it is too thin or the five-jaw material is insufficient, there is basically no problem with the static load bearing, but the instantaneous load bearing is poor and the durability will also deteriorate. The two models in the picture are all nylon five-claws, which is better at a glance.
2 Look at the filling
Many people will say, why should I buy an e-sports chair? The cushion of an e-sports chair is so hard that it is not as comfortable as a sofa (sofa decoration renderings).
In fact, because the sofa is too soft and sitting on it, the support of the person's center of gravity is not stable. Users often move their bodies intentionally or unintentionally to find a new balance and stability of the body, so sitting on the sofa for a long time makes people feel Back pain, fatigue, fatigue, damage to buttocks nerve.
Gaming chairs generally use a whole piece of foam, which is suitable for long-term sitting.
There are basically two classifications of sponges, native sponges and regenerated sponges; stereotypes sponges and ordinary sponges.
Recycled sponge: As can be seen from the figure below, recycled sponge is the recycling and reuse of industrial scraps. It has a peculiar smell, may contain harmful substances and endangers health. Poor sitting feeling, easy to deform and collapse. Generally speaking, the cheap chairs on the market use recycled sponges.
Original sponge: a whole piece of sponge, environmentally friendly and hygienic, soft and comfortable, good sitting feeling.
Stereotype sponge: Generally speaking, ordinary computer chairs rarely use stereotyped sponge, and only some brand gaming chairs use it. The cost of stereotyped sponge is higher. It needs to open the mold and form one piece. Compared with the non-shaped sponge, the density and resilience are greatly improved, and it is more durable. Generally speaking, a chair with a higher density has better resilience and a more comfortable sitting feeling. The density of the sponge of ordinary gaming chairs is 30kg/m3, and the density of brand gaming chairs like Aofeng is often above 45kg/m3.
When choosing a gaming chair, it is recommended to choose a high-density native shaped sponge.
3 Look at the overall skeleton
A good gaming chair generally uses an integrated steel frame process, which can comprehensively improve the chair's life and load-bearing performance. At the same time, it will also do piano paint maintenance for the skeleton to prevent rust from affecting its life. If you are shopping online, you must pay attention to whether the manufacturer dares to put the skeleton structure on the product page. If you dare not even display the internal skeleton structure, you can basically give up the purchase.
Regarding the frame of the cushion, there are basically three types on the market: engineered wood, rubber strip, and steel frame. Everyone knows that the engineered wood board is secondary synthesis, has poor load-bearing capacity, and contains harmful substances. Some cheap gaming chairs basically use this. If you are a little better, you will use a green rubber band, which can have some rebound by the rubber band, and it will feel softer when sitting on a chair. However, many of these rubber strips cannot provide reinforcement, and are easily deformed after long-term use, which greatly affects the service life.
The higher the cost is that the entire cushion is reinforced with steel bars, the force is more balanced, and the load-bearing capacity of the cushion is greatly improved.
4 look at the backrest
Different from ordinary chairs, gaming chairs generally have a high back, which can share the gravity from the lower part of the spine; the ergonomic curve design of the back can make the body contour fit naturally. Appropriately distribute the weight of the back and the back of the thighs to the seat and back of the chair to minimize the uncomfortable feeling of pressure points.
Generally speaking, the backrests of gaming chairs currently on the market are all pu materials. The advantage of this material is that it feels comfortable and looks high-end. The disadvantage is that it is not breathable, and pu is easily hydrolyzed when exposed to water, causing the PU skin to crack.
In order to make up for this shortcoming, many gaming chairs will make some upgrades in their materials, covering a protective film outside the pu, which is hydrolysis-resistant pu. Or use pvc composite half pu, pvc upper layer is covered with pu, no water seepage, long use time, at the same time pu covered, softer and more comfortable than ordinary pvc. The current market has three levels of 1, 2 and 3 years. Brand gaming chairs generally use level 3.
If you want to choose a gaming chair made of pu, you must choose a hydrolysis-resistant fabric.
However, even the best pu fabric is not as good as mesh fabric in terms of air permeability, so manufacturers like Aofeng will also introduce mesh material, which is not afraid of stuffiness in summer. Compared with ordinary mesh computer chairs, it is more resistant to stretching and soft. The weaving process is more detailed, and it is also equipped with flame retardant materials and so on.
