    Great seat
    Easy to put together and good quality, just wish i didn't have to modify the foot pedal bracket in order to fit my T500RS pedals. Overall this is a great product and easy for anyone to use.

    Best Purchase In A Long Time
    I don't make quick purchases on anything I buy and it was no different this time. After 4 months of researching all kinds of gaming chairs I decided to purchase the Playseat Evolution Alcantara with the Playseat Seat Slider. I paired it with the Thrustmaster T300RS as well as the Ferrari F1 Add On Wheel. Assembly of the seat was as easy as any review (written or video) said it was, The Seat Slider attached effortlessly and works as well as the slider in my truck. My Thrustmaster Wheel Servo Base and Pedals were even easier to attach. If you purchase the T300RS you will need to have 2 screws to attach them to the seat. It says 2 M6X10 Hex Head screws but I had to use 2 M6X14 screws because of the attached pads on the base of the pedals.This is an issue I have with Thrustmaster not Playseat because there's no way Playseat could provide screws for every set of pedals available on the market. I've had mine for right at 1 month and couldn't be happier. Even with a disability in my left leg that keeps it from bending, my seat is extremely easy to get in. I was deciding between the Playseat Champion and the Playseat Evolution Alcantara and I'm very happy I spent the extra money and went with the Alcantara. I have sat in my seat for 5 hours straight with no discomfort at all. The material that my seat is made of is comfortable and doesn't get hot like some of the other synthetic material chairs would. I've never had more fun in my life playing video games. I use it mostly for F1 2016 & Project Cars but the best way to experience my chair is with Drive Club VR on my PS4. The VR makes the game better right off the bat but using the VR while sitting in my seat and using a real wheel took it to a whole other level. With my disability I use my chair for all of my VR games, not just driving ones because it's close enough to the PS Camera (required for VR) and much easier to move back and forth than my recliner. Don't get me wrong, my seat is amazing for driving games but don't limit yourself to using it just for that. I had thought about buying another gaming chair to use with games that don't involve driving but I figured I'd buy the Playseat first and then decide. I don't want to sound repetitive but as comfortable as my seat is I have no reason to buy another gaming chair for non driving games. I know this is a long comment (I could keep going) but I hope others will read it all when they are trying to decide what type of gaming chair or seat to purchase. If you're looking for the best all around gaming chair/seat that is compatible with plenty of wheels and pedal setups look no further. Pull the trigger and purchase your Playseat and I bet you'll be writing a review like this as well.

    The Future In Home Entertainment
    Getting this little virtual race car has turned me into a kid again, I am now inviting coworkers over to try it out and have convinced at least one to buy it so we can race together. It takes a seat with all its attachments like this one to make a real difference in my life. I suggest to change your life with something as simple yet life exciting!

    A nice, compact racing cockpit
    The Playseat Evolution Alcantara is nicely finished and quite robust, although it does have a small amount of flex. I previously owned a Wheel Stand Pro and its robustness was comparable. I must say that racing in the Playseat is a nice upgrade and quite immersive compared to racing in an office chair (even with a sturdy mount)!

    Pros:
    - As compact as a racing rig can be while still approaching the "real deal" (I made a lot of research before settling on the Playseat)
    - Satisfyingly robust
    - Nicely finished, quality materials
    - Love the alcantara
    - Great seating position when adjusted properly
    - The seat itself is comfortable (considering this is meant to feel like a racing seat which are usually quite stiff). I've seen reviews mentioning that they feel a bar on their back where the seat folds, but I have not found this to be the case. I tend to have back pains but this seat is comfortable to me, although it's true it doesn't have good (if any) lumbar support.
    - Wires can be routed through the steering wheel post for a clean look (just remove a plastic cap). Works with the G920 at least.
    - Nice optional accessories
    - Close to the ground, but not too low
    - You can easily add a ButtKicker for extra immersion

    Cons:
    - I would have liked a tad less flex when steering. It's not too bad, but sometimes during quick maneuvers I feel it flex a bit and it can be distracting. Maybe it would help if it was not on carpet.
    - Same goes for the pedals (the G920 brake pedal is quite stiff, causing pedal plate flex when pushed hard). I'm actually considering ways to solidify the pedal plate so it doesn't flex as much (although it's not super noticeable when racing).
    - For the price, I would have liked at least the seat slider to be included. It's a pretty useful accessory and it feels like it should be part of the kit.
    - Although it does not block proper operation of a middle brake pedal (like on the G920), you can indeed feel the middle steering wheel post sometimes. You can shift the Logitech pedal sideways by a centimeter or two with "tracks" on the pedal plate and it helps, but still. I suppose it would be less of an issue for taller people that can put the pedals farther from the steering wheel post.
    - I'm 5'7" and the pedal distance adjustment was barely OK. Had I been shorter I couldn't have brought the pedals closer to me without lowering the steering wheel (to replicate the feel of a race car, specifically a rally car as much as possible, I keep the steering wheel near its highest position).

    All in all, although the Playseat Alcantara Evolution is not perfect, it's a pretty nice racing cockpit and probably the most compact and affordable you can find. I'm satisfied!

    Fantastic Racing seat!
    My Evolution Alcantara seat is ideal for my racing rig and space in my theater room. Very comfortable, easy to assemble, very robust build, and a space saver for those with limited space for your setup. The folks at Playseat Store were prompt and cordial in answering my questions. My order arrived on time as promised. I couldn't be happier!

    Absolutely awesome!
    It's pretty quick to put together, maybe 20 minutes or so (though if you have the seat slider expect another 15 minutes) and is more comfortable than I thought. I'm probably not going to sit in it for more than an hour, maybe two, at a time - and it will be perfect for that. But I feel like I could spend hours in this without comfort being an issue at all.

    It's sizeable but not too huge, and it collapses into a reasonably small enough size to be tucked away behind some other items or in the corner of a room. If you're seriously space challenged, maybe avoid it, but it's able to get more compact than I thought it might be.

    It definitely accommodates people of varying sizes, but shorter people whose legs are definitely not long (such as, me: I'm 5'6" and my torso makes up more of my height than my legs do) should expect to work a little harder to get their adjustments right. I can't get the steering wheel high enough to where I want it to be, because I can't move the steering column tube far enough away to be able to raise the actual wheel stand bar because I need the pedals to be close enough that my tiny tiny legs can actually reach the pedals.

    That being said, there's a wealth of adjustment you can make to this seat in so many ways. I've only just begin playing with it and have every confidence that I'll find the right setup for my body size. Also, in the end, it turns out the seat slider was absolutely a must with my body size, because I can move the seat a little farther back away from the column positioning, quite helpful. Without it, I'd have been forced to have the steering wheel way lower than would be comfortable.

    My only issue is with the footboard for the pedals. It doesn't necessarily seem flimsy, but I am concerned about the longevity of just the two bolts and series of connected holes (it's like that for the adjustment/tilt of the footboard) with working heavy on the pedals. In the photo you can see I have the T3PA-PRO pedals, which are 15lbs. I have them inverted, GT style, and it puts the weight both high, and farther away from the center. This necessarily creates more stress on the bolts holding the footboard in a particular adjustment spot. It wobbles quite a bit even with minor braking force. It doesn't affect your driving much, but it's noticeable and ends up making me worried about how it will handle stress in the long term.

    Also: DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE STEERING COLUMN BAR, IT DOESN'T GET IN THE WAY OF THE PEDALS AT ALL UNLESS YOU LEFT FOOT BRAKE -- and even then, just change the brake pedal positioning to the left side, and invert the pedal plate orientation and it's much easier to left foot brake with. This is one piece of information I was desperately trying to find before I bought this, so I want to make sure I say it loud and clear for all!

    Overall I'm very, very happy so far. Excellent purchase!

    Best purchase Ive made for gaming in a long time
    I love this seat!! Right out of the box it was very easy to assemble (about 30 minutes). I coupled this together with the Thrustmaster T300 and would recommend that setup to any one who likes racing. It is very easy to adjust so that my 6 and 8 year old boys can drive and have just as much of a good time as I do. definitely 2 thumbs up for a great product!!

    First of all, your dealing with a very high end gaming accessory over here, the seat has a race car feel to it, the quality of the alcantara is spot on, perfect craftsmanship & zero sacrifice to quality, the seat frame is very solid & made to last, assembling the seat toke me some time as i m OCD & wanted everything to be accurate & perfect ;-) would recommend this racing seat to anyone who loves racing games & off course who have a budget to fulfil their home simulator needs. The Support team are fantastic & very helpful in guiding you with everything. Thumbs up & keep it up :D

    Bit expensive, but good setup
    It's a bit expensive but it's worth it so far. Pretty stable, good seat, the backrest may be a bit to straight for me, cuz of my sore back. But with a small pillow it does the trick for me. Super fast delivery! So keep this up!! Race on!

    I have bought this seat because I didn't have any tables to put on my Logitech G920. The shipping time was a bit longer than I expected, but still pretty fast. The seat itself is very nice, easy to assemble, took me around an hour including securing the wheel and pedals to it. Seat is comfy and I am able to play for hours! The only thing - It's heavyyyy! Not easy to move around :Dk

    Pretty good but not great.
    The seat could use more lumbar support. The ability to adjust the wheel hight separately from the forward and back motion would be nice also. A way to invest the pedals would be cool too. All of these things are found on much bigger and more bulky rigs, something I didn't want. Which is why I choose playseat. Compact, easy to move out of the way and yet still stable when racing. Very pleased!

    Overall it is a good seat..looks nice
    Gives you the feeling of a racing car as fas as the racing position is concerned. A bit expensive though..
    A disavantage would be that the things that holds the steering wheel is not very stable..

    I've wanting this seat for a year now and it is everything I thought it would be. Fits me perfectly and has lowered my racing times dramatically. Very easy to put together and folds up to a small form for easy storage. You can adjust this to any position that is comfortable for anyone. Works great with my Logitech G29 wheel. All the screws lined up perfectly to install. This is a must have seat for all your racing needs. I would highly recommend this Playseat to anyone.

    Thanks gain for a superior product!

    Playseatstore.nl is a clicks and bricks, which I prefer over an online-store only. The playseat staff was very helpfull and adviced me well. I bought my playseat set in-store, they send me the items to my home within a day.

    Overall:
    - Very stable set(even with intense racing sessions);
    - Durable;
    - Easy to adjust;
    - Lots of fun!!

    The seat is very easy to stow away after an intensive race-session(see picture). If you have little space the seat can be easily dismantled, because the seat uses hand-twistable bolts that hold the units(seat & pedals) together.

    With the purchase of a racing-seat, it was important for me that the seat would be easily adjustable to various lengths and heights. The seat is very easy to adjust, within 10sec you can have the whole seat adjusted from my preference(1.87m), to my girlfriends preference(1.65m). If you have a wooden floor, I recommend buying the Playseat Floor Mat, otherwise the adjustments might cause scratches on your floor.

    My setup:
    - Playseat Evolution Alcantara
    - Playseat Gearshiftholder Pro
    - Playseat Floor Mat
    - Thrustmaster T300 RS Racing Wheel
    - Thrustmaster TH8A

    I'm very impressed after unboxing.
    Great quality build and looks like a racing Seat!

    Easy to install and dosn't take many space.

    Now i love to play racing Games. Feels very realistic and my friends are very jealous that they buy a Playseat too.

    Thanks Playseat for fast delivery! I buy soon additional accessories for my Seat!

    I suggest all my friends and buddys your Seats and Service!

    Seat is actually pretty solid. If you sit it on carpet you may experience slight wobble in the pedals because of how the feet are so close together.

    I am going to design my own platform made from 80/20 products that will allow me to mount the whole setup to a hard surface while still maintaining all the adjustability. Plus I can build onto the rig later on to add more features like speakers, fans, monitors and other things.

    I highly recommend the seat slider if you are going to have friends race with you. It is way too time consuming to adjust the rig over and over even with the quick knobs. Plus you will scratch up your posts sliding them in and out repeatedly.

    Overall it's a great buy. And the center pole isn't something to worry about. It doesn't bother me one bit. I can't wait until the Logitech G920 comes out so I can truly test the functionality of this setup. But after gaming in it for a few days I am satisfied with this purchase for sure!

    kann den sitz nur empfehlen ,durch seine wirklich super verarbeitung kann man den sitz in alle warianten ( sprich größe der Person) einstellen ..zur verarbeitung des sitzes kann ich nur sagen " 1A" die ganzen näte wurden kontrolliert von mir und konte keine schwächen erkenen auch meine stiefmutter ( gelernte schneiderin) sagte" für diesen preis könnte sie keinen sitz in dieser qualität herstellen"...habe mir dazu noch die verstellbare sitzschienen und die halterung für die gangschaltung gekauft und kann auch zu diesen 2 bauteilen sagen das sie von der verarbeitung her sehr hochwertig sind sprich dickes metall (lackiert) auch das komplette stahl gestell hatt ein ordedliches gewicht und mann hatt einfach den beweis das es sich um eine gutte Verarbeitung handelt...also ich kann von mir aus das ganze set so wie ich es mir gekauft habe nur empfehlen...p.s sory hab vergessen zu sagen das ich den sitz in alcantara leder habe ...also viel spaß und gutte fahrt

    Great all around. Could use a little more padding for bigger guys
    I am 6 foot and way about 105kg. I have a big frame with an athletic build (ok fine I can afford to lose about 5 kilos) but the point is that it carries my weight no problem and definitely gives me the confidence that it won't buckle underneath me at any point. I also bought this so that my son (4 years old 122cm) can also sit and play. Happy to say that it accommodates both him and I quite nicely. It is very adjustable and all you need to do is use the three tension screws and within seconds it adjusts from my seating setting to my son's. Very good quality build and very versatile. Even though the package is heavy, it is quite easy to move around if you want to make more room or rearrange your setup. I would have given 5 stars if the back support was a little beefier. It could use a little more especially in the lumbar area of the back support. Other than that, it's a fantastic addition to your game room and accommodates a number of wheels or control sticks.

    The best of all I have reviewed
    I looked and reviewed all the seats on the market, and found this one to be the very best value in all categories.
    First off, it was on sale, it was shipped and arrived earlier than expected, the instructions were accurate and concise. It was assembled in less than 20 minutes, and everything was in the kit, and fit perfectly. At that point I was already impressed, and then I sat down in it, and felt the luxurious feel, quickly and easily adjusted all the elements to my fit, and I was ready to mount the wheel and pedals.
    I very easily mounted the MS wheel and pedals to the mounts, and there are ample ways to do just about any wheel and pedal set. Then I tie wrapped all the cables, and moved it into the gaming room where I re-arranged all the pieces in the room to accommodate the seat, which it added another whole look to the room!
    At that point I climbed in and started racing! I t was that easy!
    The design and features of the Playseat are superior to the other manufacturers especially in the tubular construction and reinforcement sections. I really drive hard and this seat stands up to the rigors without any issues!
    Not only is it totally functional, it also looks fabulous! I t reminds me of the seat in my Camaro, and I really like the whole feel of it.
    I would recommend this or any Playseat item to everyone who wants to become a better driver, because this will help you do that!
    In fact, I planning on buying another one for my wife to place along side of this one.
    Playseat rules!

    Excellent bit of kit
    Got this seat packaged with the t300rs for playing project cars. Is excellent. The only negative I can think of on the seat is the deck wobble. Gonna mount it to a base to cure this though.

    The seat is firm but comfortable, a little lumbar support cushion would be an ideal addition too. After a while your lower back strains a little, just like in a real car. Have loved using it, can't wait for a better game to play though.

    Overall I thoroughly recommend this purchase ;)

    Totally worth it
    There's no denying that the combined price of a racing seat and steering wheel will scare quite a lot of people away, but after having been on the fence about buying one for about half a year I am absolutely ecstatic that I finally went for it.

    The level of realism it adds is brilliant and the set-up is so nice because everything fits so well.
    Even when I'm not using it it sits fairly inconspicuously in a corner of my living room behind a seat, but every visit I get people are genuinely so interested in it. People that have absolutely zero interest in gaming or racing still have to, at the very least, sit in it.

    Games like GT6 are an entirely different experience, with gusts of wind hitting you at high speeds and hard/long races becoming a semi-workout if you want them to.

    Love how robust everything is while maintaining the easy adjustability of it all, except that for shorter people the steering wheel gets pretty close to them because the pedals have to be within reach. Just a very minor remark though, because everyone has been very impressed with it so far.

    Really happy customer right here.

    Produit de qualité très confortable,et pratique.Il n'y a qu'un point que je suggérerais,au niveau de la conception. C'est le manque de réglages pour la hauteur verticale du volant;le tube oblique qui supporte le support du volant,n'est pas suffisant;il faudrait un réglage supplémentaire,au niveau du tube vertical qui supporte le volant.Ce tube devrait être réglable,en plus ou moins de hauteur. Pour le reste, bon produit dans l'ensemble....

    Playseat
    The only negative feedback I have about the playseat is that the steering wheel mount doesn't adjust high enough, and far away enough to my preference. So I have to choose between the wheel being lower and further away, or higher and closer to my body. For what it's worth, I'm 6 feet / 182 cm tall.

    Puur plezier
    Stevig, comfortabel en een "perfect fit" in combinatie met een Thrustmaster T300RS. Ikzelf ben niet zo zwaar en groot maar "volslanke" mensen kunnen best eens vooraf een Playseat testen.
    Enige minpunt: De gaten voorzien in de steunplaat van de Playseat voor de pedalen van de T300RS waren voor mij helemaal niet geschikt. Een boormachine of een andere handigheid lost dat wel vlug op.
    Ik was ook tevreden over de vele meegeleverde snelbinders voor de kabels en de zelfklevende velcro strips.
    Prima aankoop. Daar ga ik nog jaaaaaaren plezier aan beleven.

    Comfort and fun
    Really ads a lot of fun to the simracing experience. Assembled it without difficulty, if i can do that it has to be easy.

    As to be expected it needs some time to get the positioning just as you like it, but offers great comfort and fun once you get it just right.

    Fixing the pedals (csr elite) proved to be a bit more challenging then i expected. Was a bit dissapointed by that to be honest. But in the end sorted it out and now im just enjoying the ride.

    Overall a very good seat, i recommend it strongly.

    So much fun!
    I love my Playseat. It is built exactly like I would have myself. Very stylish and tough, this thing is made to last. Coupled with a Logitech G27, you have a very versatile solution for every type of racing game, from arcade to simulation, F1 to trucks.
    It is a bit expensive, but that could be easily solved by including a gearshift holder as standard, which you need 9 times out of 10 anyway. It may also be a tad hard to adjust for taller people, especially those with long legs.
    Overall, I would wholeheartedly recommend the Playseat Evolution Alcantara to fans of racing games of any type. It completely changes your experience for the best and really connects you to the game.

    Great chair.
    I purchased Playseat Evolution Alcantara since it is compatible with Logitech G27. I really like it since it's comfortable and enhances simulation (I only play Gran Turismo series, currently pleying GT6). I purchased with gear shift holder to increase even more the realism.
    I recommend this for any race fan.

    Pretty Much Perfect
    Great product all-around. Once you get in the seat for a few days and find your perfect set-up, you be amazed by the fun you'll be having. I use the Thrustmaster 458 Ferrari with force-feedback and it works GREAT with this seat. I really appreciate the followup emails from Playseat and feel confident in them to help me with any possible future problems. For now, I'm just really enjoying my racing experience. Highly recommended unless you are a REALLY big guy, for one of my friends who is 6'8 and rather heavy struggles with total comfort. Other than that and some struggle with original adjustments the product is pretty much perfect.

    Had no problems putting this together, and totally transforms the gaming experience when playing racing games. Seat is very comfortable, would recommend getting the seat slider if different people are going to be using it. Seat is nice and comfortable, although the folding function doesn't make it that much smaller for storage.

    Good Playseat
    First, I want to built my own playseat.
    After creation of the first drawing and price checking I decide to buy a playseat.
    Service and delivery were top. The assembling the seat was easy.
    The quality is very good. I was very pleasantly surprised.
    The seat cushions could bea little bit more comfortable. Buttt this is all.
    All in all, I enjoy this race seat to drive.

    Excellent hub purchase
    Having just bought the seat on a whim when I decided I really wanted to build a somewhat decent, and comfortable, sim-racing and general gaming hub, I couldn't be happier with the purchase.

    Delivered really quickly, easy to build, my G27 wheel and pedals fit just fine on the provided stands and provide a solid unit for putting my all into any sim-track action and not having to worry about the pedals coming loose or the wheel moving, along with being easy to adjust to suit any position I may take on the seat, I'd recommend it to anyone, especially those who, like myself, may be a little wary as to how well it would suit their need.

    It was got early in my stages of planning but I'm really glad I could build almost anything I want to around it to provide an all-round gaming experience and not just racing.

    Get into the driving feeling
    The seat supports a much more realistic driving experience. It is of hight quality and the alcantara surface feels nice to sit on. Our only drawback is that I have to share the seat with my kids and it is every time de-adjusted. It is a bit clumsy to re-adjust it to my preferred position. That's why I gave 4 stars only.

    Almost great
    The chair looks very cool and it was delivered very fast. I had lots of fun with it.

    A few problems though. I couldn't pay by credit card because their system was not working. Also, while trying to figure out the card payment with them (2-3 days) the transport cost went from 0 to 30 euros i think, which was not a cool thing to do, especially because i couldn't place the order eariler because they had problems with the payment. Also, when i placed the order the site said 'free shipping worldwide. Yes, we really mean worldwide' and i'm on the same continent as them :-)

    I'm also having a small problem with the pedals support. The pedals from my T300 RS don't fit in the best position. There is only one position i can attach them to the support. It was very hard to adjust the distance between the chair, the wheel and the pedals so that i can reach the pedals properly and not hit the wheel suppory with my knees. It's not perfect, but in the end i got used to it.

    Also, one plastic cap was broken, but i guess that was fedex's fault. Not a big deal.

    All in all i would say the price is ok and the chair is nice. I would recommend getting that thing that allows to adjust the chair without unscrewing all the knobs. Especially if you have friends over this can be very annoying.

    Excellent choice
    Great seat made of fine materials, with rather tough construction. G27 fits well.
    Although it's a great piece of sport coming to my room, there are however some omissions:
    1. Very few screws in a box - only six, while steering wheel and pedals require four screws each, so I should bind them not using all threads;
    2. Perforations on steering wheel and pedals plates are not well - pedals can be installed in only position, where all screw-threads are under the plate perforation (which purpose other holes are made for? - the question I was not able to answer myself :) )
    3. While I'm not rather tall, I love sport seating - seat should be adjusted as far as possible from the wheel and pedals, and that's where I faced the problem, that using of brake pedal in this case is not so comfortable I would like to be, cause it's shadowed from leg by steering wheel rack, and right leg feels rather uncomfortable touching all the time that rack.
    But, considering all of this, it's still great thing made by people who love and understand what they're doing! Hope my review will be useful for futher improvements.

    Downside is if you want to play with a 3pedal setup with clutch then the centre steering pole will get in the way
    Theres aslo a little play in the centre pole moving when steering hard right or left

    Alcantara
    I bought the Evolution Alcantara because of this special fabric. It's just sooo comfortable. I can just keep on racing for hours. I really love the way Playseat® deals with details, everything is perfectly finished. Conclusion: It looks great, is comfortable and of high quality.

    A good buy
    I often play sim games like rfactor, and having this seat really adds up. I'm happy that I have made this buy since I basically use it daily and I've never felt uncomfortable. I highly recommend these seat!

    Love this setup!
    I own the Playseat Evolution Alcantara setup for non-stop action on my PS3 playing the Gran Turismo 5. Gives me a very good driving position and once I'm on it I can hardly get out of it.

    Can't stop playing racing games!
    Amazing chair, that’s highly adjustable for racing comfort. The material (alcantara, hence the name) feels great. It’s possible to fold the chair when you’re not playing so it gets quite small and you can put it somewhere else. The racing experience is great. It’s as if you’re in a real racing chair. Now that I have the Evolution Alcantara I don’t even bother playing race games sitting on the couch, because it’s just not the same.
