    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    For all you guys out there wishing you would have a nice racing rig but you're worried about the wife factor: this is your solution!
    My wife was totally against a cockpit standing in our living room and that force me to play with a gamepad for long time.
    Until I found out about Playseat Challenge and after showing her some pictures/videos, I finally got "approval" to pull the trigger!
    Actually the other day after playing at night I forgot to put it inside the cabinet again and found out my wife sitting on it reading a book. So yes, it's really comfortable and flexible :)
    Now about the Challenge as a product.

    There are lots of Pros:

    It's much more comfortable that I had thought. Really, you can sit there for hours and not feel tired. I think it's even more comfortable than regular office chairs or some seating avaiable in other cockpits.
    It really adapts to your body shape and weight. You just feel that you're safe and steady, like in a real racing seat.
    Another thing I've liked is there is no central support between your legs. In this sense it's also more like a real car than most cockpits.
    The build quality is quite high. The material your body will be in contact is really nice, it feels great and not sweaty as leather seats. The structure is sturdy enough. I have it for a short time, but it does look like it will last long.
    Assembling was a piece of cake. Provided assembly manual is very clear, you just follow the steps and it's ready to be used in a few minutes.
    I've bought a Thrustmaster T300RS together, so let's talk about putting both together.
    The wheel base fits nicely, attached with 2 screws included in Challenge package. Balance is quite good as it's the position to drive. There is a simple adjustment on the lower part of the wheel base support, allowing to turn it up/down to your own preference.
    Pedal set included with T300RS can be fixed with an included stripe and it stays in place when driving.

    Cons:

    To be fair there are a few cons, but I'd say they are more related to the Thrustmaster T300RS fitting in this product than the product itself. You may have different opinion if using different racing wheel.
    But let's talk about them: when not in use, you'll probably want to close the Challenge for easy storage, as this is probably the reason you bought it anyway. The thing is, the way the wheel base is attached to the support (and there is no other way to attach it), make it impossible to fully close the Challenge, as the wheel itself will hit the chair fabric in the bottom part.
    If you have a different wheel that the base is attached further, this won't happen. In my case I have to open a strap everytime I want to fully close the Challenge, which is not a big deal, but not nice as well.
    Another con is how the pedals are attached to the base. There are no screws or plate to attach. Just a strap to go around the pedals and the Challenge base. Since T300RS standard pedals are on the small side, it's a little loose. There is stopper in the base though, so when playing I don't feel any movement as pressing the pedals just make it go agains the stopper anyway.
    Attached picture showing the cons only, but the pros outweigh the cons for sure.
    It doesn't get maximum stars for all criteria just because of that.

    Bottomline:

    Overall Challenge is a really nice and well designed product, I totally recommend it!
    If you don't want (or can't) your racing rig using your room space all the time, this is what you should buy.
    It's really much better than those things that you only attach your wheel/pedals and you have to sit on the sofa.

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    My gaming chair used for racing finally wore out and I started looking for a replacement. I needed a seat that was comfortable, and could be stored easily. I involved my wife in the process of determining the best option and we both found the Playseat Challenge appeared to be the best option. I ordered the seat directly from Playseat and the process was easy, fast, and actually fun. I monitored the seats journey via FedEx from start to finish as it traversed the globe. The seat arrived in excellent shape and I was able to assemble it in minutes. The materials are of excellent quality, from the Alcantara seat to the tubular chair frame, wheel platform, and high quality Velcro straps. My racing wheel and pedals attached easily and are very stable. I am able to race for long period of time without fatigued or becoming uncomfortable. An added bonus to the Playseat Challenge is the absence the wheel platform post found on other seat seat ups. There is no post between your legs! Thank you Playseat for providing an alternative to larger more fixed racing simulator chairs. See you at the races.

    Playseat挑战者的做工很好,坐上去包裹性和稳固性都不错。预开孔可以很方便的将方向盘安装上去,我们甚至没有看说明书就完成了所有的组装,只花了几分钟。
    它与Thrustmaster方向盘能够很好地配合,让赛车的乐趣提升了一大截。当然,它也有一些不足,例如方向盘会有轻微的晃动,但这对游戏的影响不大。但是比起更高端的产品,它的便利性就相当突出了,公司里每天大家在游戏过后,能很快将它们收起来,然后会议室立即可以用来进行工作。

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    I am constantly moving for my job from one apartment to another apartment. Practically speaking, a full size gaming chair set up wouldn't work with my living situations. However, I needed something for iracing. I looked around and most of what I found online was cheap looking, or uncomfortable looking, or some sort of do it yourself project. That is until I found the challenge playseat.
    The collapsible design is perfect for small apartment living, or for someone who likes to store their gaming chair away when not in use. It was very simple to get up and going out of the box as well.
    It is somewhat heavy once the pedals and wheel are attached, but that should be expected. The quality of the build on this chair is worth the extra weight anyway. There is no noticeable wobble and the chair is comfortable enough to get through endurance races without much issue!
    I only have two small issues, or quirks, rather. One, I had to use some of the foam in the box to make little anti scuff pads so that the chair didn't scratch my hard wood floor. 2. I'm having problems with wire management. The wires from my g27, if not wrapped around one of the legs, fall right on my legs which can get tangled. But that's not necessarily a chair problem, and more of a system one.
    Anyway. This thing is great! The same feel and security as a larger set up with the added bonus of storability! I would recommend this product.

    Overall a great product. I would recommend to friends. My only complaint is the lack of a shifter attachment included with the seat. I built my own, but it would have been nice to be part of the whole package.

    This might be the cheapest model from Playseat, but is is a quality product. The initial setup is very easy, and so is the folding of the seat for storing. The seat is very comfortable and the range of adjustment is very good. I have a Thrustmaster T300 RS mounted to this seat, and it is soild. I highly recommend this for anyone who needs a flexible solution.

    Very easy to set up, lightweight and super easy to fold for storage or unfold for use. Surprisingly comfortable. easily adjustable straps which are good. Im 6'6" and have no issues once adjusted to my height. As mentioned folds very easily for storage which was selling point for me as i do have a lack of space but wanted a racing seat. Pricing was only negative side if there is one as it is a lot of money. Would highly recommend to others

    The chair fits perfectly to the body and gives a very good feeling. You think you are sitting in the race car. It can be stowed very good and super easy to fold. Very space saving. The price is okay. The materials are high. The chair is very recommendable. I use it for F1 2015 and Project Cars on the PS4 and for GT6 on the PS3. It is the best chair that i ever had. When you don't have a lot of space is this the best choice.

    Am using the chair for over a month now and have to say I love it. Its really well built, really sturdy and very comfortable. I can sit in it for hours without issue. Its highly adjustable as well to suit all body shapes. I'm 1.9m tall and weigh 83kg and I am aable to get everyhting perfectly adjust for comfortable seating relative to the height of my screen.As for folding it away, its faultless and very compact. It fits perfectly and unobtrusively under my stairs and its great that you can leave the wheel and pedals attached. If space is an issue for you but you don't want to compromise on quality then this is the chair for you.

    My review summary really says it all. I'm very happy with this seat. The only caveat is something that I've read from someone else as well - The clips that connect the pedal bracket to the bottom of the chair itself seem rather fragile, so I'm always sure to lift the pedal brack up a little before I slide the whole seat off to the side of my desk when I'm not using it.

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    I've long hankered after a wheel & pedal set-up but was put off because most of the chairs I'd seen were way too large for my very small front room and it just didn't feel right using a stand with my existing computer chair.

    Then someone told me about the PlaySeat Challange. At first I thought it was expensive for a 'fold down chair' but after reading some online reviews I took the plunge and I have to say, it's been a fantastic purchase.

    The quality of the components is 1st class, assembly was ridiculously easy. From opening the box to sitting in the chair i spent less than 15 minutes. The instructions were extremely easy to follow but in all honesty you could put it together without them as there are just a few pieces to slot together.

    And the comfort, oh how comfortable it is! I easily found myself playing for 2/3hrs without getting out of it, it's super comfortable. When in use it pretty much fills up what free floor space I have, as you can see from the photo but it quickly folds down for storage taking up minimal space. So compact it fits into the back of the wardrobe.

    I have no hesitation in recommending the PlaySeat Challenge for those with either limited space or a limited budget. You will not be disappointed.

    I purchased this because is the only option that can easily be put away after playing, and if initially I had my reservations about the price and build quality, once I used it it is definitely worth the price.
    It is quite sturdy (I'm using a TX on it), I can play for hours without feeling tired or uncomfortable, and once I'm done, I can easily put it away and use close to no space at all.

    I played racing simulators with other seats but this seat is just epic!

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    The Playseat Challenge is a fine product. To be able to fold it up and put out of the way is a must if you don’t have limitless space.
    The only negative part of the aquisition was the promise that it was compatible with all steering wheels and pedals currently available. This might have been technicaly true, but in the case of my Thrustmaster T80 (and other wheels with similar mounting systems) this ment that the only way it could be mounted was with the wheel almost touching my chest. So it was succesfully mount but obviously not in a way that I could use. In order to usefully mount the wheel I found an adaptor from Wheel Stand Pro (€17,99) and I drilled a two extra holes in the mountingplaform. Now it fits great and I’m glad to own the Playseat Challenge. I just found the assurance of near universal compatabilty somewhat misleading.

    This seat is perfect as it can be folded and stored. I haven't found any other driving seat with this feature. Although it is very mobile, it is very comfortable. My thanks go to playseatstore.com as they sent the product very quick. It took long for me to receive it but it was due to my country's customs.

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    Pros: Comfortable, foldable, stable and very quick to set up

    Cons: Quite pricey, I wonder about long term durability

    This will be a short review of the Playseat Challenge intended to provide information to those interested in the seat who are unable to see it in person prior to ordering. As Playseat don’t have many local stockists I suspect that most people will be ordering without ever having seen the chair themselves, as I did.

    I purchased the chair from the Playseat UK store and it arrived a week later well packaged from Italy. Upon opening the box initial impressions were good; the alcantara material used for the seat is very soft and feels high quality, the metal frame tubing powder coated evenly with no marks or damage. Assembly of the seat was straightforward with adequate instructions provided.

    My Logitech G27 wheel mounted solidly using the supplied allen key and bolts. The wheel stand is metal with predrilled holes for various wheel manufacturers and according to the Playseat website it “works with all steering wheels and pedals currently available” – I assume this is because you could simply clamp your wheel to the stand as you would on a normal desk in the event that the Challenge doesn’t have pre-drilled holes for your wheel type. The wheel angle is adjustable by a clamp on the bottom side and allows for a wide range of adjustment. Once clamped the wheel feels solid enough in place with a slight forward/backward flex when applying force but importantly there is no sideways play. I can say that the forward/backward flex is small enough as to be not noticeable during gameplay, it’s a non-issue.

    I have the Playseat Gearshift Support bracket to mount the G27’s gear shift unit. There’s not much to say on it, it’s essentially a straight bracket mounted to the seat using the gear shifter and wheel’s own clamps. It allows you to mount the shifter on the left or right hand side of the wheel.

    To the front of the chair the pedals are mounted with a Velcro strap to a telescopic frame allowing adjustment for different lengths according to your height. Here we find my only gripe with the Playseat Challenge – the clamping thumbscrews which allow for the telescopic adjustment are made of plastic and I’d prefer them to have a metal thread improving their durability. The pedal angle is not adjustable which may be a problem for some however I imagine it would be possible to pack out the bottom of your pedals to angle them if this was a big concern.

    In use, I really like the Challenge. It’s adjustable enough to go from an almost lying down F1 style seating position to a more upright touring car position and everywhere in-between whilst being comfortable enough to be used for long periods of time. I’m setting the chair up at my desk and pulling my monitor forward so that the screen is just above the steering wheel and it works well. It takes me about 30 seconds to open the chair up (just like a deck chair) and connect it to mains and USB, it’s much quicker than having to clamp a wheel to a desk every time you feel like playing and it folds away small enough (60 x 49 x 38 cm folded) to allow me to store it in a wardrobe. This is very important to me as I can’t/don’t want to have a permanent Playseat setup. The Challenge would be great for use in a living room setup being light enough to move around and pack away.

    Overall I have no qualms recommending the Playseat Challenge, I’ve been enjoying mine for 2 months now without issue. I do wonder how its long term durability will be, will the alcantara seating material stretch over time? Will the plastic thumbscrews wear out? However for now these are if’s and but’s, I have no evidence anything will fail and the chair feels solidly put together.

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    The seat is excellent quality and very easy to setup and use. The adjustments allow for setting the seat up for a great driving experience. The platform that the pedals attach to could be made to allow a more stable connection, the Velcro strip that is used to strap down the pedal platform will sometimes come loose and the pedals will slip. The ability of the chair to fold up and be stored is awesome, this allows for persons with limited space to own and use this seat. The only draw back of storing the seat was that the dye from the material of the seat leached onto the wall that it was leaned up against and has proven very difficult to remove or cover up. I would recommend that if the seat is leaned up against something else while stored that a cover be put over it or something placed between the seat and whatever it is up against.

    I am a college student, living in a 510 sq/ft studio appartment, I am also addicted to Iracing. The Playseat challenge folds up perfectly to fit in my home. The seat is perfectly comfortable, and you can adjust it from a F1 style seating position to a Nascar position. The thing is also solid, i get little to no wiggle out of it when racing. One problem had was the little plastic peaces that hold the pedals on snapped, making it a bit harder to fold up and a little less stable. I would say that is the only cheap part on this seat though. I would recommend this to anyone.

    For those married, and your wife is strict like hell, with the order and decoration of your living room , this chair is the perfect choice. I always wanted to have a Playseat chair but the price and the enormous size of the standard models didn't let me decide to buy one.

    I can fold it with so much ease, the materials and construction are so well done. The stability and the way you can adjust to your fit are unique.

    If you have a T-Rex-Wife as mine... don't doubt to buy this chair, she will appreciate it.

    This seat has impressed me in many ways. While I feel it is a little pricey, don't be fooled. This seat is made of high quality materials that you could not just make up at home. The seat is ridiculously ergonomically friendly, and the way it folds out can fit anyone. I would recommend this seat to all my friends. It folds up super nicely when you're done playing and can be placed under the bed or in the closet. You know what that means? The wife cannot get mad because it doesn't take up a lot of space! All in all, I have to give this seat a 10/10 review because it is perfect for me. I debated on making a makeshift DIY seat for cheaper, and I could not be happier with my decision. Thank you playseat!

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    Wheelstand I used before was great for portability but bad ergonomically

    A dedicated driving rig is great ergonomically but bad for portability. No way I could have one in my home theater room. And no way I'm going to drag it out every time I want to play.

    So the challenge looked like an ideal compromise. And it is.

    Sets up and breaks down in less than a minute. When not used it's out of sight.

    Sitting in it is snug and after long runs I can feel it in the back of my thighs. I imagine not much different that actually driving in a race car. The way the wheel swings out to let you in to sit is wonderful.

    There is just the tiniest of wobble from the plate that holds the wheel but otherwise is quite solid. I found the pedal adjustments fine. And being able to adjust the wheel rotation is great.

    Price wise, it is a little more than one would expect to pay for what it's made of, but then again this is a niche product.

    I cannot afford to have a fixed playseat, so I thought of buying this seat as it can be easily put up and away as needed. I have to admit I was more than surprised by its quality though at times the metal parts which hold the velcro can be a bit uncomfortable on the thighs, but it could be that I need to slim down a bit.

    Overall I am more than satisfied with this seat, my driving improved drastically as now I feel more engaged in the game having the right posture. Definitely worth buying!

    I bought the play seat challenge with the t300rs for the game project cars! This was my first seat and wheel so I read a lot of reviews before I decided to spend almost 600 euro on an item just for one game! I ordered it and within 4 days it was here, when I opened everything was nicely packaged and very very easy to set up, it's drilled for all types of wheel and my t300 fitted perfectly and very secure! The seat it self feels very race car like and is really comfortable when playing, I really can't recommend this seat enough for somebody who is tite on space as it folds away in seconds or doesn't have the high budget for a big rig!

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    My wife was sick and tired of seeing my old BMW 3-Series drivers seat in the middle of the living room whenever I would have a "driving session". After seeing the Challenge, I knew it was the solution we would both be happy with, and we weren't disappointed. The driving position is excellent, the "Alcantara" like materials are really high quality, the design is both sturdy and "racy", and ingenious way it all folds up to a slim footprint to store away makes it a winner in our apartment. And since it so easily and quickly sets up, I am able to get in more driving sessions, more often! And it looks so good, my wife doesn't even mind if I sometimes leave it out after! Perfect for drivers who don't have the space for a dedicated driving sim room.

    The seat is great, very good quality, surprisingly comfortable considering the price, love the design of this seat and all it's features, easy to assemble and hide away with it's cleaver folding mechanism.

    My driving experience improved alot with this seat and fits just perfect in my small room. In my opinion this seat makes the driving experience of my driving games more realistic

    Overall I think the seat is amazing :)

    fits in nicely to my small room. platform is very stable. the seat is not the most comfortable, but i don't think it is possible to improve with a package this small.
    overall a great buy for anyone who needs a platform for their wheel setup who does not have money or room for a full setup.

    I thought for a long time to get a support for my G27. Just putting it on the desk was just torture for my back. But normal seats need so much space. But then I found the challenge. I checked a review of a famous Youtube Channel and after their words i decided to order it.

    Very Friendlly email support (i forgot to type in the order number but that wasnt a problem at all) and after some days it was here.

    I unwraped it, the short picrographic manual told me everything i needed to know and i was able to get started within a few minutes.

    Important: also get the gearshift support if you use the g27 with the shifter, otherwise you will be in trouble.

    the seat itself is foldable so you cannot expect that it is as stabile as a based seat. But even with this movable base i never had the fear to drop out of it or it coulld break down. I have to admitt, i was a bit unsure because of the straps if they will hold me but even with my too high body weight the seat takes it without any compromises. Big Pro: Because the seat is carried by the straps, the seat floor is flexible (as you can see on the product image), so it will get like a second skin on your back.
    The wheell is fixed by a swing-arm which is flipped to the left while on the right side is a small fixing piece for the closed position. Also the angle of the wheel is adjustable so after some experimenting you will soon find your optimal seat position.

    You want a Racing Seat and do not have much storage room or even a Gaming Basement? THIS is the seat you are looking for!

    It is solid (and I know what I am talking about, because I am not of a light build - if you know what I mean) and is on top of that wife/girlfriend friendly, since you can store it almost anywhere with litterally no place it occupies! So - if you want to do some serious racing and you have not much space and even your wife / girlfriend is not an active hardcore gamer, this seat is not only a compromise, this is the greatest and there is no discussion with your loved one - promise! ;-)

    Ever since I got my Playseat Challenge, I was addicted to playing driving games. It was the best racing seat I tried while playing my favorite driving games. Besides all the fun in it, it has all the features that I have imagined on an ideal gamer's seat. The design of it's portability and ease to setup and fold is genius. Plus my experience on purchasing this seat is remarkable, as it was beyond my expectations. The seat was delivered to me in a snap and in great packaging.

    Thanks again PLAYSEAT. Here is one of your many very satisfied customer. More power to you and keep up the good work. :)

    I didn't had high expectations about the Playseat Challenge, but i was really surprised about the build quality and comfort. Great adjustability and very easy to fold and store. It is not the coolest looking rig on the market, but you forget all about that as soon you're seated.

    Hola mi nombre es Carlos de Mexico D.F.
    Compre un Playseat Challenge y ha sido la mejor compra que he hecho y es la primera vez que experimento la sensación de pilotear un auto de carreras.

    Escogí el Playseat Challenge por el precio, y por lo comodo que se guarda todo el equipo. el servicio de envío es fantástico, en cualquier momento sabes en donde se encuentra.

    Es un producto de mucha calidad en los materiales, ademas que me puedo sentar sin problema en el, a pesar de que mido 1.88 cm. y peso 80kg.

    Estoy muy feliz con mi Playseat porque a mi hijo de 4 años le gusta jugar y pasamos horas jugando, dirt shodown, granturismo 6 y formula 1 2013 que este ultimo es nuestro favorito.

    Espero en el futuro se pueden conseguir estos productos en Mexico.

    Muchas Gracias.

    Saludos.

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    The design of the seat is incredibly clever for what in actuality is- a fabric hammock stretched over a few metal tubes. I was most surprised to discover how comfortable this setup is as well. I fatigue mentally well before I would physically when pulling a marathon gaming session in this seat. I've also found it to be very stable and adjustable, and the folding function is great for packing everything up into a closet.

    It's a great fit for me, and it should be fine for particularly tall or short people as well. It is a narrow seat, however, so the more slender a person you are, the more comfortable you will probably be.

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    About a year ago i bought 3 of these seats,
    1 for myself and 2 for friends who were interested.
    Seat delivers way above spectations.
    Really really comfi and real good materials ! I really like the way the seat is holding your body, slightly laid back position but not too much. Really nice when you drive for a couple of hours repeatly, no stiff neck or stiff shoulders.

    Pedal holder is changeable in distance, not in height but i placed my pedals not against the bar but on top of it, so you create slightly more angle, perfect for my situation.

    Steeringmount is not changeable in distance but when you have average body measurements, it's somehow always has a good distance, you can changen the angle of the steeringmount and thats in most of the times just enough to make it right.

    First setup without sitting in you think it's a bit unstable but that's really not true, when you take place, the seat really hugs you and you feel like a racing driver instantly, because of your bodyweight the seat is rock solid when you take place.

    Big plus when your using force feedback (asuming most of the people do) the pressure of the force feedback gives a great feeling through the seat and you get a real racy feeling.

    I really like the seat and in my opinion it's a great and really affordable model, i've less space at home and when i'm done, i plug it out, fold it and place it in the corner.

    Nothing but good words for this one !

    I'm using it with a logitech DFGT.

    regards Richard

    THE perfect solution for the gamer with a wife that does not want your setup permanently in front of the family TV! I am a traveling sales rep and pack my seat, PS, and G27 into my truck for every trip - take into hotel and don't miss a race. Playseat just as stable and perfect today as when I unpacked it 18 months ago. NO issues, NO complaints, Playseat delivered more than expected (unusual today).

    This is the second Playseat Challenge that has been purchased to provide interactive education and awareness to students and adults regarding the dangers of distracted and impaired driving. The seat is used in conjunction with the One Simple Decision driving simulator from Virtual Driver Interactive.

    The Playseat Challenge is a valuable tool that has raised our program to a higher level. The students are intrigued by the seat and are eager to participate. The seat is portable, easy to store and ship to events, and quick to set up.

    The order process is efficient and the customer service is focused on meeting the needs of the customer in a timely manner.

    I would highly recommend the Playseat Challenge to other organizations.

    I have the seat for about a year and still very happy with it, since i play most in the living room the foldable design is great for me. It only takes a few minutes to set up and store it again. Comfort is pretty good and used materials are also durable. I use the Thrustmaster TX wheel which fits perfectly.

    Bought the seat about a year and a half ago.
    Used to have the Playseat Evolution A1GP in White, but it took up to much storage space.
    The Playseat Challenge is a good alternative. I was supprised with the stability. My G25 with SRF-S1 mounts very stable to the seat. The seat is ideal for both Formula and Touringcar racing as it has an adjustible angle.
    And the miss's is very happy that it can be stored away...

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    Overall the seat is very well made and if used with the recommended wheel/pedal set and being the average person this is a product which you can take out of the box, assemble, play, have fun, neatly fold it away in a closet and be good until the next time.

    However, I don't have the recommended wheel/pedal set nor I am an average person.

    Starting with the wheel I have a Fanatec Turbo S which fits without much problems using 2 screws and it stays secure. For the pedals since I own a set of Fanatel metal CSP pedals they won't attach securely to the seat frame because they don't have a flat surface underneath. As such, I had to do some DIY in order to attach it securely to the seat. This will also play a role when storing the seat away since the CSP are quite heavy and I need to use a couple of extra velcro strips to keep everything in place.

    Finally, my size is also not the best fit for this seat.. I am 1m90 with 120kg which the seat is happy to carry around without breaking itself apart (a huge plus on playseat for that) and it feels a little small on the knee area but other than this, you can adjust the seat well enough to make it confortable for a few gameplay hours. I only which the whole frame was 5cm or 10cm wider but I understand I am not the average user of these devices.

    In the end this is still the only option if you want something which feels like a real car and which you can store away when not in use.

    It's a great chair and I enjoyed racing all over the world for many hours ;)
    It's comfortable and long races are no problem. If the chair is folded it fits in a small corner and it is ready for racing in a few seconds.
    All in all a must have for all racing game fans!

    Comment about Playseat® Challenge

    I was looking into racing chairs for a while now, but always hold of because of cost and space requirement. When I saw the Playseat Challenge at Gamescom and had a chance to test it out it was a instant buy for me.
    Building it is very simple and require no tools, in fact it is harder to get out of the box than it is to build. Included Vercro straps help with cable management and keeping it folded when stored.
    The chair is very adjustable but a bit of a hassle since you have to get out of it for a lot of the adjustments, but once done you won't need to change anything even when storing it. (Ok, if you have really long legs like me, you may need to put back the pedal rest when storing)
    At first glance it doesn't seem very sturdy because you're basically sitting on Velcro straps, which is the main reason it is only rated for 122Kg, but once you adjusted it to your needs and sat in it for 5 min the chair has settled and withstands even heavy gaming sessions.
    The hammock style seating is very comfortable even over an extended period of time and the alcantara gives it a premium feel , however it does get warm and possibly sweaty and the front loops that hold the back adjustment bands can interfere with your legs, which can get uncomfortable after a while, but even a thin piece of foam is a big improvement here and only a minor complaint of mine.
    Storing it is done in under 30 seconds. Unlock the wheel plate, fold the chair, secure it with the included Velcro strap, lift up the pedal rest and secure it with the attached Velcro strap. done. It is to note, that it doesn't stand on its own when folded.
    Summary: You want a racing chair, but you don't have enough space? Buy this one.
    It's not a compromise but a full fledged alternative with it's only drawback being it's load rating. It is also a good choice if you just want to save money.

    Wow, this chair is really convenient! It easily folds into a small package, but the race experience is still really great. I think the larger Playseat® chairs are more spectacular to drive but this one is certainly worth the money.

    I bought the Playseat Challenge a few months ago and I've really enjoyed it since! The chair is comfortable, adjustable and since I don't have a lot of space it's really nice that the Challenge is foldable.

    All in all I must say: given the price it's a pretty comfortable chair.

    I really like the Playseat Challenge. The experience is great and the seat is very comfortable. Thanks to straps you can adjust the chair exactly the way you want and the wheel can be turned up, so you can easily get seated. I also think it’s really great that you can fold the chair, including the wheel and pedals, so it doesn’t use that much room when you’re not using it.
