[OFFICIAL] DXRacer owners club and information thread - Page 8

post #71 of 219
I got racing and max series chair both.

Racing series back is really comfortable for me, seat foam is soft and comfortable but side bars killing my legs with pain. So i gave racing to my wife and bought max series.

Max series (now its called as wide series) is really uncomfortable, back of the seat is hard and not ergonomic, having backpains. Seat is really wide and comfortable for legs but foam is hard as rock, my butt crying after few hours.

So i'll buy another one but i need help.

King series with lowered side bars or Classic series??? Which one guys??? Need soft foam and leg space, also nice cover for back. I am 185cm and 85kg, fit body type.

I'm reading that these DXRacer charis are overhyped because they sponsor everything in the gaming industry. Of course, there are a lot of people swearing by these chairs also. This is why I'm very confused if I should focus my research on this brand or other brands. What do you guys think? Any comments on Maxnomic?

One of the things I like about my DXRacer is how it is constructed. The frame is steel, the cushions are done the way all upholstery should be done. The chair is built far better than most things you will sit in. You will never find a solution that is 100% perfect for everyone.

So when I was much younger, I worked in an auto upholstery shop. This was in the early 90's, and we did a lot of dealer work. Lexus was a fairly new luxury back then and had excellent supportive seats in all their cars. A lot of former Cadillac owners were switching to Lexus, but many of them did not like the seats? Why? Because back then Cadillac seats were closer to a overstuffed couch than a proper supportive car seat. So we would get brand new Lexus (Lexi?) from the dealer asking us if we could make the seats softer and less supportive.

IIRC, Maxnomic makes their seats much like DXRacer does. There was video a while ago where some people cut a DXRacer/Maxnomix chair in half to compare it's construction to a standard style desk chair. I'll update if I can find it.

Edit - FOUND IT! They used a Maxnomix chair, but IIRC DXRacer and Maxnomix used the same production for a while if not still do.

You can see the fabric straps on the the back and in the seat of the Maxnomix, which is the way a seat should be made. In the cheap chair they also cut in half, you can see that the entire seating area is a piece of formed plywood. Not much give to that and is much weaker over the long run. If it breaks, buy a new chair. If the DXRacer/Maxnomix breaks, you could conceivably get it fixed at a decent upholstery shop.

Ok. So either DXRacer or Maxnomic is a good choice, right? Any advantage of one over the other? Do they offer the same price point for their products?

From what I can find, Mexonmic is a little more expensive and very insulting when asked how their chairs compare to DX Racer - found this bit during a web search
Quote:
The difference between brands is that MAXNOMIC are superior to DXRacers in every respect: they have stronger metal, better bases and cylinders, softer--more comfortable--foam cushioning, armrests with a greater range of motion, softer pillows, a tilt mechanism that you can lock into place in any position, wheels that don't scratch hardwood floors, etc. . . As to which chair would be best for you, let me know your height and weight and then I'll recommend the chair series that would best fit you. I hope that helps. Feel free to ask any more questions.
Make it a great day.

I have worked with both chairs for two years. You can take my opinion or not. There are no "scientific" studies comparing the two chairs. I've already told you the differences. Feel free to get a chair with a cheap plastic base from them. That is your choice. Let me know if you have any questions about our chairs.
Make it a great day.
And DXRacer does make their own chairs in their own factory, i was able to find that info again.

I honestly would just go with whichever one you can get cheaper in your country. Maxnomic doesn't have a Canadian retailer or I was going to get their chair originally. The shipping alone for their chair was going to cost me $100, then the poor Canadian dollar and it made the Maxnomic chair nearly $200 more expensive. I don't think there's a huge difference and I believe DXRacer has more options to choose from.

I just purchased an Iron Series and have owned an Office Series and thought it would be good to share my thoughts for people researching the chairs, since fit information can be vague through the racer site.

I'm 5'11" 235 pounds with a 38 inch waist. The Office was not very comfortable for me. First, the headrest was too low for my height. It would stop my back from resting flush in the chair. If you're over 5' 10", I would be careful about considering the chair for that reason - the DXRacer site lists specs as <5'11". My other impression was that the seat was stiff. My legs would fall asleep after a couple of hours in the chair. The chair was only with me a week, so I assumed it would break in and would have kept the chair if not for the headrest issue. One other thing; the lumbar pillow was too large and stiff. I cannot imagine anyone with a lumbar gap that large outside maybe Shaquille O'Neal.

For me, the Iron series is more comfortable. The padding in the seat and rest, is more soft; hard to quantify, there is just a measure more give to aid circulation. Also the lumbar pillow is thinner. I don't know if there is inconsistency in the DXRacer pillows or it is an attribute of the series, but the I version doesn't feel like large ball lodged in my back. There is one caveat for the Iron Series. The wings along the side, could be prohibitive for anyone larger than myself. I can sit flush but just barely. It probably wouldn't work for waist's larger than 38", or smaller if you like room around your waist. Plus the 'traditional' Racer neck pillow is softer and less imposing than the hard headrest from the Office Series. I'm happy with the Iron Series thus far.

A potato for the owner's club!
