AKRacing ProX Series - test & size advice
Until now, the King model was actually only a gaming chair that offered its owner somewhat more generous dimensions – that has now changed with the AKRacing ProX Series. You actually get a few centimeters more here – 1cm width, 5cm depth, 3cm height – and only have to cut back minimally in terms of the width of the backrest. Just like DX’s king, ProX from AKRacing carries 150kg. That sounds like a lot at first, but in reality it’s not necessarily decisive. The ProX also leads the manufacturer’s range in terms of price – so it’s premium all round. Interested? Then take a look at my test with video and the size guide below!
The ProX Series is generously dimensioned and also offers especially large and heavy gamers or all those who like it roomy enough space – top class!
The facts about the ProX series:
What body sizes does the ProX fit?
Many will find the 44cm wide, flat seat particularly comfortable. There is no “intrusive” molded padding, as is the case with the SL4000 from Vetagear, for example. While this can be very comfortable if the thighs fit snugly into it, if this is not the case, it often squeezes uncomfortably when sitting for long periods of time. So, the ProX is super suitable especially for people with wider thighs. The high backrest and the possibility of placing the neck cushion very high up, coupled with the deep seat, provide enough air for gamers with a height of up to 2 meters. Smaller people (from about 170cm) simply attach the cushions further down, adjust the gas lift down and thus also find space.
ProX series test & comparison
I gained my excellent verdict on the ProX from my extensive test. From the first impression to the extensive test sitting, this gaming chair really convinced me. Take a look at the following test video as well as the rest of the report and make up your own mind – the obligatory comparison to DX’s King series should not be missing, of course.
The ProX in a practical test
The assembly was uncomplicated and quickly mastered alone. The chair makes a very robust impression at first glance, all components are strikingly generous and I also like the design right away. The specially shaped seat cheeks stand out positively and offer a welcome change.
Of course, the ProX is also equipped with adjustable cushions that serve as neck and lumbar support – just like any good gaming chair. The backrest is effectively – from seat to top edge – about 85cm high and thus 3cm higher than the King. Since the cushion can also be placed very high up, the ProX offers plenty of room to move upwards.
At the front of the 54cm deep seat, the throne is adorned with the lettering “PROX SERIES” – I like it. At the front, the surface is 44cm wide and tapers to 40cm at the rear. Overall, it offers 1cm more space in width and 5cm more depth than is the case with the King.
