While driving simulators have become incredibly realistic, they can't replicate the feeling of being in the driver's seat — until now.

This chair comes with a gear shifting function, an accelerator, and a brake. The user will not have to simply hold a controller. They can truly be in the game, mimicking the motions of real driving and if you couple this with a VR headset, well that really is the ultimate.
- Top Ten Select
Accompanies easily adjustable clicking chair mechanism.
- Review 10s
It is easy to store & move. Ready to use.
- Ultimate Game Chair
Easy to assemble with detailed instructions and toolkit included.

The stand-out feature is definitely OpenWheeler’s total adjustment control, which allows you to freely adjust the seat into any position you like. The most you can do with an ordinary chair is to change the height of the seat. With the OpenWheeler, you can recline the seat to the appropriate angle, glide the entire chair forwards or backward, and shift it to the left or right.

It is very durable as it can withstand long hours of use without showing signs of wear and tear.
- IND Reviews
The gaming chair is quite easy to assemble.
- 11 Must
The best part of this racing simulator chair is its compatibility with not only computers, but also with many of the top gaming consoles including Xbox, PlaySation, and Wii.
- Gaming Chair Pro
What experts didn't like
No lumbar support. An expensive option with a very specific function.
- BestReviews
You may need to modify it if you do not like being too close to the floor.
- Top Best Spec
Doesn't accompany instructions on how to make utilization of the clicking adjustment mechanism
- Review 10s
The chair can be a little difficult to tighten or loosen up after it’s been fully assembled. That said, make sure you pay attention and invest time during the assembly process to make sure the size and settings are adjusted properly the first time.
- The Game Room Review
September 18, 2018 | Full review
The chair needs assembly on arrival. The assembly process might feel like a nuisance to some people.
- Chairs Buddy
Mount is too far forward and needs to be adjusted
- Chairs HQ
This chair may not be your choice if you need the ultimate options for comfort and connectivity. As you just saw, only the basic features are available. You will also have to purchase the components according to your needs.

The durability has a question mark on it.
- 10 Bolt
January 17, 2019 | Full review
One complaint we have is the way the seat is built because it can make left-foot braking difficult for some, especially shorter individuals. But, the biggest issue we have is the lack of lumbar support, which can put additional pressure on your back.
- The Best Gaming Motherboards
September 25, 2018 | Full review
Some users feel that the bar for adjusting the steering wheel sometimes serve as an impediment to left-footed braking.
- IND Reviews
The chair is quite bulky. It has no base wheels either. Moving it might be very tedious.
