  • Playseat Evolution Challenge Racing Chair

  • Great Entry Level Sim Seat

    from Vancouver, BC on 27 janvier 2017

    One of the best entry level seats you can get. Many will tell you it's not good enough but then point you to setups that cost at least double. Was easy to set up, comfortable and adjustable. I am 250lb, 6'3" fit build and was able to sit in it pretty firmly. If you are bigger than that it might be too tight. Still held up well. If you are not willing to build your own this is one of the better turn key solutions. I have heavier Fanatec elite pedals which caused the foot pedal to flex, which you will find in reviews. It's not too bad and I am sure you can wedge something under the foot plate to fix this issue. Does not come with a shifter plate, the default one from playseat is expensive so I would look at building your own. The middle pole does get in the way a little depending on how you drive (either heel-toe or left foot braking will be compromised). If you start getting into the heavier/enthusiast level wheel/pedals/shifter which are heavier and have more forces associated with them, you will find this to be a bit too flimsy. For most, it's convenient and more than enough.

  • Great seat

    from Calgary, AB on 21 juin 2016

    I really sat on the fence on this one but it is definitely a great purchase for your steering wheel set. I chose the Alcantara as I figure it will be more durable than the synthetic leather in the long run. Although you can fold the seat partially down and slide in the pedal mount for storage it will still take up a good bit of space. The unit is very sturdy and well built. I would recommend the seat slider as you will have less marks on your black metal frame from adjustments. A shifter bracket is also a good investment if you have a stand alone shifter. I would say the unit fully assembled with the wheel and pedals is up around 60 lbs. Caster wheels on the back would have been nice for portability...nothing that can't be done with some research though. Great product! If you have the room and some money saved up go for it! 5 stars!
