    I’ve had my seat for a couple of weeks now and I can safely say I’ve got no problems with it it’s made well the positioning of the seat and the platform the steering wheel fastens to is positioned well too.
    It’s made my game play better as I have full control of the car in the game. I’m happy with my purchase and I would recommend to anyone who is looking into online sim racing at entry level.
    Keep up the good work playseat store.

    I love my Playseat Challenge. I was sure what to expect at first being a portable folding racing seat but it definitely is worth the price. When you compare it to racing stands with a chair you can’t beat it. The quality of material is great and feels like it will last a very long time. The comfort level is amazing and being able to fold the chair and store it away is amazing! Would highly recommend this product to anyone interested in sim racing with a limited amount of space.

    The quick assembly and disassembly of the playseat is convincing.
    When you don´t have enough space for a hard installed seat, is this the most important tool what you should have to drive simracing.
    The stability is very good, while you sitting on the seat.

    Thank you very much Playseat, for providing an alternative to larger more fixed racing simulator chairs.
    And thank you for the quick shipping.

    This is a surprisingly sturdy seat with offers a lot of flexibility both in terms of adjustment and use in limited space. I had put off buying a seat due to the limited space in the TV room and although I had looked at these previously was concerned that they would not be solid enough. A friend bought one and reassured me that they were solid. I have to say that I am really pleased with it and wish I had bought one sooner.

    I wanted to upgrade my sim racing setup for a while now. Having used a desk chair and desk clamp to secure the wheel for years, I was looking for a not too expensive, solid and immersive chair. Amazed by its built quality, adjustability, it also offers a wheel plate where I have bolted on my Fanatec CSL elite. Even the 6Nm of power do not give noticeable flex.
    I couldn't be happier. The fact it folds away so easily without unmounting the wheel of pedals is an absolute joy! And it takes up to no space as well.
    Overall very good product especially for the price range.

    I really like this playseat!
    I have been using it already for more then few weeks and I can say, that it is a really well designed, comfortable, functional, takes very low space when it is not being used.
    Even my wife likes it and actually she started to play Rally for the first time in her life :D
    My kid is still too little (3y), but he also asks me to let him drive. He climbs up on my knees and likes to test drive for few minutes.

    In General, for beginners and when you need to save apartment space - probably it is the best choice.

    The Playseat Challenge is the perfect option for those that have either limited space to have it set up all the time, or for those that are husbands/ fathers who don’t always have much time to get some laps in. It’s simple set up and ability to fold with the steering wheel and pedals makes it quick to jump into the car and get on with racing. Once folded up, it’s light enough to carry out to the garage or tuck it away in the cupboard. It has plenty of adjustment and is comfortable to sit on on for long periods of you get the chance. I’ve been using mine with the Logitech G29 Steering Wheel and Pedals playing F1 2019 on the PS4, it has made a huge difference.

    The seat is very well designed and thought out. The seat comes with a small number of major parts which fit together easily. The sitting position is easily adjustable, the seat itself is comfortable to sit in with no impediments for me and all is easily foldable with steering wheel still attached into an easy to carry state which fits into a closet or an area out of the way. I have the thrustmaster t150 wheel and even though the t150 isn't boltable to the seat's metal plate as standard, I can still use the t150's clamp to fit to the plate and hold it in place. For me it does the job and i'm playing racing games in comfort with no issues so far

    The Playseat Challange is an excellent seat for those with little space, the frame is more sturdy than i thought it would be and although at this time the seat front seems a little on the high side, it is adjustable and I hope will be more comfortable moving forward, otherwise it is reasonably comfortable and allows me to be much more relaxed whist driving and helps to improve lap times. It definitely suits my purpose.
    The order process was easy and was dispatched the same day as the order and arrived as predicted by the Playseat store.
    On arrival, it took me approximately 30 minutes or maybe less to unbox and assemble. The seat is well made and well thought out in its construction. Thank you Playseat, this will give me many hours of fun.

    After about 30 years I've decided to start sim racing again. I didn't want to spend too much for the seat but it had to be great value for the money.

    So I studied some reviews and youtube videos and decided for a playseat challange. This was definitely the right decision.

    I had some doubts because I'm 1,84m tall but it turned out that the customization options of the seat are powerful and after some adjustments here and there it fits very well for me.

    I have a Fanetec CSL elite wheel and used some cable ties for fixing the CSL elite padels. This is something playseat could improve. I also use a little pillar in my back but I do this in every chair, it just feels nicer to my lower back.

    Assembly was very fast and easy as expected. The material of the seat and rack is nice and of high quality. During driving I have absolutely enough stability both for the wheel and the force feedback as well as for the padels.

    I like it a lot and I hope to spend many more hours with the seat, it is an essential part of the overall racing sim experience.

    Thank you Playseat!

    I've always wanted a sim setup but couldn't afford it and most of all I never had the space. The Playseat has a great ergonomic feel and is extremely comfortable. The material of the seat is excellent and shape formed with just strap supports makes you feel like you're in an F1 style racing seat. The frame is supportive and sturdy. The main USP is that it took 25mins to put together and is easy to fold away with the my wheel and pedals. Every aspect from feel to comfort to functional had been thought of.

    Having bought my first wheel set I found myself needing something to mount the wheel and pedals to other than the flimsy folding table I was currently using. Limited by space and being a large fellow (rugby prop) the Playseat Challenge was one of a very few options available to me which was a) foldable and b) would take my 110kg weight.
    The chair was easy to install except the rather short strap securing the pedal set of my Thrustmaster combo. This only just fitted, and only at the narrowest part of the pedal base. I did find some self adhesive “velcro” pads which may have been intended to solve such issues but I couldn’t find reference to them in my “glance” at the user guide.

    The chair is comfy for the most part and very adjustable and should suit 99%+ of all those likely to use it. Rigidity is very acceptable for a foldable, relatively light weight chair and gives drivers no real issues even with the most energetic steering wheel inputs! I would have liked a little more adjustability in the front to back wheel position rather than having to tilt the chair back backwards or forwards (and therefore sitting angle) in order to adjust the reach of the wheel. I suppose someone could design a second plate to attach to the standard wheel mounting plate and use this to provide a sliding wheel mount in a similar manner to the pedal outrigger. This could be sold as an optional extra.

    The only issue I personally had, being a largish fellow of 1.85mtr and 110kg, was that it was rather narrow for me at the front of the seat (near the swing over steering wheel platform arm) and the front arm rest buckles dig into my thighs though only slightly but noticeable after extended play. I do not anticipate this being an issue for the vast majority of users, only those will a larger frame!

    Overall this is a great piece of equipment with some real thought having gone into the design. Time will tell on longevity but from other reports I’ve read I don’t expect any issues. As such I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a relatively Inexpensive racing cockpit that can easily and quickly be put away when not being used.

    I am amazed of the quality and comfort feeling in the chair.

    Price/quality is really overwhelming my satisfaction and it surely met my expectations, probably it is the best thing which I have bought during last few years period.
    ~~~
    True there is one IMPORTANT thing to mention - before first usage (I have a black chair), try to clean leather materials with some kind of a brush or a sponge, because after my few first excited hours of playing, I have got my white shirts and green shorts black spots.

    For anyone looking for something to use and beable to put away this is perfect. i use it in my living room but anywhere in the house it would be perfect.

    I set it up with fanatec csl elite f1 and it is perfect for it. i did have to make a bracket to mount the pedals but that was easy, just a 30cm plate with two holes drilled in it.

    my only concern is if the brackets holding the pedal extension if they are strong enough but i'm sure they are and i'm being careful with them.

    if your not sure if to buy this or something more permanent buy this and build up i promise you won't regret it

    After having a sim racing seat before but it was always in the way i sold it, but always missed my racing games.

    The playseat challenge for me was perfect as it allowed me to race in my living room but also store it out the way.

    I bought a fanatec clubsport to go on my playseat which i was a little concerned would be too powerful but it really isn't. The biggest problem i had was mounting the pedal's but i easily solved this. Firstly i used the provided strap over the back of the pedels to keep them down and centered and for the front i had to make a 30cm long plate with two holes in it so i could bolt the front down and it holds them perfectly.

    I really had my doubts if it would be strong enough and a good enough quality and hesitated to buy mine but now having it i just with i bought it sooner, so i would highly recommend to anyone!

    After buying a Logitech wheel, the next logical step was to buy a seat to go with.
    Playing with the wheel on the desk is OK but playing while sitting in the Playseat Challenge is far better !

    Easy to build and to set up, the seat arrived like an Ikea furniture, except it's very easy to build it.
    The wheel was also easy to put on. Two screws and it's done !
    As for the pedals, one velcro band and it's good to go !
    There are several settings possible to adjust the seat, the wheel and the pedals position.
    Big plus ! Once you set it up, you don't need to do it everytime. You just fold it, store it in your closet and next time you want to play, you unfold it and boom ! Ready to play !

    I was anxious about the stability (compare to a "real" rig) so when I first sat in it I was very cautious but, it is very stable and very sturdy.

    It's affordable and very compact if you don't have a lot of space at home for a "real" racing rig.

    I live in France and I received my package very fast (even with all the things happening now..).

    One negative point, though : no gear box holder.. (but I will find a way..)

    All in all, it's a very good product and I really recommend it !
    Thank you Playseat !

    I chose a playseat challenge after looking at many other frame and stand option and I’m so glad I made this choice. It’s simple to put together with a study frame that doesn’t allow wheel or pedals to shift or wobble. The folding storage is excellent as it folds down to a compact size with the wheel and pedals attached. Very happy with the purchase!

    Welcome to Covid-19 Lockdown. Yes I was looking to the future when I firstly purchased a Logitech G29 steering wheel and pedal set with gear stick. This promptly arrive and my good lady said "would you like a proper seat/setup to go with it". Well I said, "that would be great babe". In side the G29 box was a leaflet ref your products and so the browsing commenced. I set my eyes on the Petronas AMG F1 setup until she (the Boss, the one who must be obeyed) said not at £1100, how about the CHALLENGE in black. We looked, deliberated and finally when I thought sufficient time for a not so spontaneous answer had passed I said "yes please" like some demented child. Ordered, paid for (cheers babe) now had to wait as it was Saturday.
    Following Thursday, Fed Ex delivered one times Playseat Challenge. I was a good Confined husband and completed the housework before I opened and set up my new aquistion for the man cave.
    Setup - was very easy and adjusting was simple with the velcro armrest. Being able to attach the steering wheel with screws as well as the built in clamps is a really great idea for peace of mind that it is securely in place. That and the adjustable foot plate for the pedals makes this a superb purchase for a household with various sized people so they can all use it. It also has little velco straps so you can tidy all the cables and keep them out of the way. In next to no time I was speeding around Palm City (NFS Heat) and then Melbourne's Albert Park on F1 2019. When not in use it can easily be folded and put away, or if I am to slow my cat can use it as an alternative sleeping area to his other beds!!!
    Am I pleased with the purchased....No.... I am absolutly over the moon and love it. Thanks to the cat I haven't had to put it away and it sits pride of place next to my other gaming chair. I am now just waiting for the Gearstick mount attachment for it so I can use the gearstick which is depressingly sat on the floor.

    Many thanks Playseat and hope to receive atleast an email ref the gearstick mount soon if not the the actual gearstick mount which would be FANTASTIC......

    So glad I ordered the alcantara special edition as it feels really special and is super comfortable. I honestly feel I could sleep in this chair! Anyway, yes it’s not super cheap but it is incredible value as the only sim-rig my wife will allow in the house. That’s because I can just fold it up and put it in storage until I race another evening in front of my TV! She’s happy and I’m happy. You can’t put a price on that.
    Using it with Logitech G29 and PS4 GT Sport.

    I have had a Logitech G29 for PS4 for a number of years. I’ve unfortunately not used it much as my old wheel stand was heavy, awkward to set up and slid around on my hard floor. This meant I was constantly distracted by trying to stop the wheel and pedals moving away from me, reducing my enjoyment and hurting my lap times.

    The Playseat Challenge is a revelation. Now I can just concentrate on making sure my inputs are right, fully trusting the Challenge as a stable, reliable base from which to operate. What’s more, I’m having way more fun and feeling much more immersed!

    The clever design has the wheel secured to the seat assembly, meaning the wheel can’t go anywhere. The pedal assembly is adjustable but stays exactly where I set it so I can be sure of consistency.

    I was concerned about the space I had in front of my TV as my living room is not very wide. However, the deckchair-style setup means the back of the seat extends past the base and can overhang the sofa behind it.

    The Challenge folds up really quickly and easily and takes up less floor space when folded than my old wheel stand.

    The seat looks awesome in PS blue, and the Alcantara finish makes it feel like a proper car!

    There are only a few minor detractors. There were a few scuffs on the frame out of the box, but nothing to harm the function. With a PSVR headset on, I find I have to sit with my head and shoulders forward a bit due to the thick headband on the headset interfering with the seat back. However, this is a minor annoyance and not a particular distraction. Also, best to be careful when folding up the chair as I’ve had the pedal assembly flap down unexpectedly on my toes! Best to use a few more of the supplied Velcro strips for extra security.

    If you’ve made the investment in a wheel, the Playseat Challenge is an essential accessory. It gives the stability I need to be consistent and concentrate fully on going fast. The fact that it folds up so small and folds out in seconds makes it very practical for those with limited space.

    Having foreseen the up and coming Covid-19 Lockdown I purchased a Logitech G29 steering wheel, pedals and gearstick to try to relieve the boredom of staying in. This subsequently arrived and my loving (PS4 hating) wife asked "would I like a proper seat to use it all with"? Big smile across my face I said I would love one for my man cave! Inside the box for the G29 was a leaflet for your products and so started the browsing. I set my sights on the AMG PETRONAS F1 set until I was told that's a bit much and so we settled for the Playseat Challenge in Black. Done I said and she ordered and paid for it (Sat). Then the waiting had began. Monday got the email it had been despatched and it arrived on Thursday. I was a good boy and finished the housework before opening and setting up. Setup was easy and coherent, and the Logitech Equipment fits perfectly. The Red markers/lines in the arms are very good for help in adjusting. The footplate is also adjustable for length as I am 6' (187cm) tall. The seat is also very comfortable and can be sat in for a considerable amount of time (have sat in it for 6 hours(don't tell the wife)) with out any issues. I also have a full leather XRocker Chair and it is just as comfortable if not more as that is situated on the floor. This is also endorsed by my cat who has also taken a shine to it. It is collapsible so after the lockdown when it is not in use it can be placed out the way. I love this chair and it has finished off my man cave. Can't wait until the gearstick mount comes back into stock to order it to finish of the set.

    Many thanks Playseat for hours of continued fun in such gloomy times.

    Regards

    For a long time I was thinking about Playseat Challenge, since living in a flat prohibits me having a big sim racing chair.
    Challenge was the chair that fits all the criteria:
    1. Foldable
    2. Comfortable
    3. A bit pricey, but still an okay price
    4. Nice quality of materials and overall build quality

    Assembly process does not require a lot of time, the initial correction to your body -- this takes quite some time, but it's only at first with minor corrections over the first time playing with it, after that you are good to use it without the need to correct anything.

    My usual racing sessions consist of 1.5-3h of driving, not getting up. Before I got Challenge, I was using regular generic dining chair. It was uncomfortable to use and since pedals weren't fixated, had some minor inconveniences that made me poorly focus on racing.
    After getting Challenge, I no longer suffer from some random pains, I focus purely on the race, since my wheel, shifter and pedals are fixated properly and do not bother me during racing.

    I highly recommend this chair to anyone who is:
    1. A beginner and starts getting into sim racing
    2. An advanced sim racer who is constricted with the space at home and needs a compact solution (there's just no better alternative to it, except doing everything DIY, which can be even pricier in the end)

    Overall I am satisfied by this model and I am happily using it every day.
    Thank you, Playseat!

    P.S. Ordered my chair on Sunday, it was shipped out on Monday.
    Came on Friday and it was a day later than promised by FedEx, but it is because of virus and border shutdown.
    Still would say it was very fast shipping and much needed fun delivered right to my home in such unpleasant times in the world.

    It's hard to find something that served as a realistic endeavour of racing, while being compact enough to be put away.

    I looked at tables, racing rigs on amazon, and then i stumbled upon this. While putting it together you do certainly question if this is what you paid for, but upon hopping in the playseat and running raps in grab Turismo, you quickly see what it is all about.

    For a person as myself with a larger frame, I fit in the seat and was definitely held in place. Having the ability to adjust the wheel and pedals to your seating position is great, and serves as a way to have other drivers fit in the seat comfortably.

    Already hooked, grabbing more games, and my friends are already looking into getting their own playseats.

    I highly suggest getting one, and changing your racing experience moving forward.

    I am surprised how heavy duty it is, better built than I was expecting. Adjusting the driving position took minutes using the velcro and provided allen keys. Comfort is great no more stiff backs for this guy. Now I have a stellar race cockpit that can be put away when not being used. Playseat has a winner with the challenge, it is sturdy, comfortable, and super fun.

Once you get the hang of it, it becomes very easy to fold and secure to store in a small space. I love that feature. When you're done playing it barely takes any room.

    Ordering and delivery was quick. Unboxing was exciting as I’d wanted a play swat for a long time. Assembly was fairly quick and instructions were clear and precise. Use is very simple and comfort is good. Getting out of the seat is tricky but once you’ve done it a few time’s it gets easier. Got my Logitech G29 mounted very easily and all the adjustments make it perfect for all my racing games. I love this seat! A daily use. Folds away at the end of the day and hides easily away from my 2 year old who would climb all over it if he could. Cannot recommend this enough!

    This chair is a bit pricey unless you get a deal on it, BUT I have to say I'm very impressed with what it is! This seat was very well thought out and designed. It is super comfortable (even with my bad back) and the material is quality! This is an absolute must have if you are going to get into a force feedback racing wheel. A stand just doesn't do the job of giving you that actual driving feel. This does. No more sliding pedals. It is surprisingly stable (chair and wheel). It's so adjustable in every way. My Fanatec F1 wheel bolts on clean! I'm a perfectionist and I can say I'm very very happy with this purchase. it's perfect for someone who doesn't want to spend thousands of dollars on a big permanent rig. It folds up and stores easily. If your even considering it, just buy one now. I promise you you will be glad you did!

    Living in a 550 sq ft studio with limited storage, space was a serious issue and consideration when purchasing my racing seat setup. I wanted something that could fold up and be stored easily, but that also was comfortable for extended playing sessions. After reading a ton of reviews, I decided on the Playseat Challenge and couldn't be happier. I'll break my review into numerous sections to review everything:

    Ordering/Shipping: I ordered my Playseat during their Black Friday sale and got a great deal on it. The order was processed quickly and I received regular updates via e-mail on the status of my order. I had ordered my Playseat on a Sunday. It was delivered on Friday - a mere 5 days to get from the Netherlands to my home in Washington, DC. I received regular shipping updates from the shipper as well, which were much appreciated.

    Setup/Installation: The Playseat comes in a decent sized box with just a few pieces to assemble. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and everything was super simple to put together. No tools are required either as they provide everything you could need. I had the entire thing set up in around 5 minutes, which is about as good as you can get for a "plug and play" setup.

    Quality: The overall quality is top notch, especially for the price. I'm 6'5" (~1.96m) and 200 pounds (~90kg) and fit comfortably in the seat. The rails are heavy duty enough to where I feel no flex from them when I sit down in the seat and it doesn't flex or move around on me when getting out. The simulated Alcantara they use on the seat itself is great quality and feels somewhat similar to the Alcantara on my actual race seat, and breathes just as well. The swing arm setup for the steering wheel which allows you to get out and into the seat is a basic setup, but works flawlessly and seamlessly.

    Design: The section for the pedals is adjustable in or out, so you can really customize where your feet are on the pedals, which is extremely nice.

    The overall cradle design of the seat itself is extremely comfortable and very close to my actual racing seat. While you don't get the side bolster support you would from an actual race seat, you obviously don't need it since you're not experiencing any lateral g forces while playing. The straps that support the seat as well are near perfectly placed and don't interfere or bother you at all. While the seat is not adjustable forwards or backwards and has no adjustable lumbar support, I've never found that to be a problem. It seems to be perfectly fit for the proper form while racing.

    The mount for the steering wheel is properly centered and easily lifts up and out to allow entry and exit from the seat. The wheel mount is also adjustable up or down like a telescoping steering wheel in a car would be. My one complaint would be that the wheel isn't adjustable up or down. I'd prefer if it was adjustable up or down, but you can adjust the telescope side of the wheel mount pretty easily to compensate pretty well for this.

    Overall: If you have limited space and want a great racing seat setup, I would highly recommend the Playseat Challenge! It's extremely comfortable, well built and designed, folds up and stores easily and looks great! I've spent easily 40 hours in my seat since I received it and have recommended it to all of my racing friends who have mentioned in the past wanting a home setup. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase one again!

    I bought this seat because at the moment i don't have enough space for full sim-rig, but i want to have proper siting position and right wheel location. After assembling this fold-able rig i immediately noticed that it is sturdier than most of reviews are saying, especially in wheelbase plate fixation. It stays in place and there is no movement in any direction with Fanatec CSW 2.5 wheelbase, and after using it for good 10-12 hours i can say it fully supports its power and there is no movement in either direction. seat is comfortable and can be adjusted to different people liking. Assembly instructions are clear, materials are high quality, shipping was faster than promised (arrived 1 day earlier). 11/10 :)

    Just got into sim racing so I'm a new to it. Picked up a wheel and pedals but knew I needed a chair that was sturdy, comfortable and did t take up alot of room but still looked cool. Well the playseat challenge checks all these boxes. Super easy to put together, very comfortable for adults and kids, holds my wheel, pedals and shifter nice and secure and it really enhances the sim racing experience. When I'm not using it folds up in a few seconds and I just put it in my closet. This seat is affordable and nice very happy with this purchase. Would love to try there other products !!!

    I did not have high expectations, as it looks like a garden chair on the pictures. But when it arrived I was blown away by the quality and stability. Installation was done in 15 minutes including the adjustments to my size. It's very comfortable, even for longer sessions. The only thing bothering me sometimes is the VR headset being to close to the headrest. But that's a "me" problem.

    I'm using this mainly for iracing and my first 3 races produced two wins in this chair (neither me nor playseat claim that you will win races with this ;)

    I love the overall idea and design, it folds up great! Just a few little things you should know, there's nothing included for a separate shifter (e.g. G27) which is annoying, and there are metal pieces right around the hip area which dig into me a bit - probably not as big of an issue if you're a little smaller...

    After a long time researching options to upgrade to a proper seat & wheel combo, I took the plunge and bought the Playseat Challenge ... and I do not regret it!
    Ordered directly from the Playseat Store, delivered in 4 days. very easy to put together and easy to adjust. I am an average height and weight and the seat is very comfortable. I am using the Playseat Challenge with a Logitech G29, and had no problems installing.

    The most amazing thing is how it folds up to a very reasonable size, even with wheel and pedals hardbolted - even my wife is impressed (relieved) that it can be easily stored.

    All in all, you just can't go wrong with this. If you are stuck for space it is a no-brainer, and even if you have lots of space it's worth getting too. Now i just need to learn how to drive properly ....

Ebbene no! Mi sono imbattuto curiosando sul web nella Playseat Challeng, ho letto un paio di recensioni, tutte positive, era bella a vedersi, e soprattutto non costa un occhio della testa. Decido di prenderla dal loro stesso sito, mai scelta più azzeccata! Arriva in tre giorni, imballata benissimo, ed ho anche risparmiato qualcosa rispetto ai siti di e-commerce in giro per il web. Facilissima da assemblare e dotata di un chiaro ed esplicativo libretto di istruzioni. Una volta montata, mettere su il mio thrustmaster t300 è stato facilissimo come stringere due bulloni

    The Playseat Challenge is an excellent seat for the average sim racer looking for a more fun experience. The solid build quality, comfy seating position and customisability takes sim racing to the next level of enjoyment, all while being foldable and fitting under my bed when not required.

    Unfortunately, there is a minor drawback which makes the seat slightly annoying. The servo mounting position isn't quite rigid and there's definitely some movement there, detracting from the whole experience slightly.

    All in all though, the seat is excellent value for those looking for a smaller footprint racing seat.

The seat it very adjustable, I have it fit perfect for me, and lastly, this seat is so much fun, just getting in it is fun, feels like your climbing into the cockpit of a race car. Oh yeah, ps.

    I already had a wheel, but I did not use it because it was impossible to set it up and play for any length of time without experiencing pain because of the way I was forced to sit when driving.
    I ordered the challenge seat and it arrived prior to the expected delivery date. The unit was well packaged and very easy to assemble, just follow the pictured instructions and it took about 15 min before I was already to race. The design of this rig is very well thought out and will adjust accommodate any size person, comfort is amazing. This rig improved my driving ability, skill and most of all comfort. I highly recomend buying this unit if you are struggling to enjoy your racing game experience!

    Na opzoeking gedaan te hebben ben ik bij playseat challenge uitgekomen en de gearshift suport.
    De playseat challenge is gemakkelijk in elkaar re steken, ik had zelfs de handleiding niet nodig want alles wijst zichzelf uit.
    Mijn Logitech G27 past er goed op en gemakkelijk gemonteerd alsook de shifter op de optionele gearshift support.
    De kabels kan je mooi vastmaken met de bijgeleverde velcro strips.
    Na het spelen kan je de stoel eenvoudig opvouwen en dan neemt die weinig plaats in.

    Ordered PlaySeat with no big expectations, but with trust that is going to be a good product. And I was not mistaken. Impressed by the quality and it seems like its going to last for a long time. The seat is very stable even with the aggressive drive.
    The only weak point is that the seat is not enough adjustable to be used by kids smaller than 150cm, therefore my little son needs to wait for a couple of more years. I believe that can be fixed by making liftable pedals frame.

    So, there is no way that I can have a full racing rig in the middle of my room in front of my TV. At the time, I am limited on space but still wanted to play some Xbox racing games with my Logitech G wheel. Dragging out a shaky table wasn't working either.
    Now within a few minutes, I am comfortable and ready to race! Everything is mounted securely to the Playseat Challenge. Plug in the USB and power cord. Folds up when I'm done. I'm really impressed with how stable the whole rig is. Feels just like a racing bucket seat and has many different adjustments to get comfortable.

    If you are looking for an wheel stand, look no further. I have been thinking about purchasing a wheel stand for a long time. I had a metal printer stand at work doing nothing and thought i give it a try. It was close without adjustability so, i thought about purchasing a foldable wheel stand. Then i thought i had limited space. The printer stand was a pain to move and set up. So how much better would a wheel stand make? Then i saw this Playseat Challege on You Tube, and glad i did. The set up and take down is easy, since it's all in one. The seat is comfy and once you have it adjusted to your liking, it can be folded up and ready again when you are. I would recommend to anyone that would need to setup and take down when needed.

    This chair hits the ideal sweet spot in terms of function and cost. Clever designing and the use of quality materials never makes the Playseat Challenge feel like a cheap choice.
    The only ding I have to give it (and it's a quarter star off, not the whole one) is the triangle anchors for the arm rest Velcro bands. The triangle shape sticks out just enough to be noticeable pressing against your outer thigh. Now, I've sat in the chair for at least two hours and have never had any bruising, but an alternate design choice here could eliminate this one contact point.

    I live in a smaller apartment with little closet space but I am very involved with Flight simulator's and Racing simulator's. The biggest challenge for me is I don't have the space for a large permanent rig setup and I didn't want to have to tear down my rig each time I have company over then have to set it back up again. The Playseat Challenge accommodates my needs in a couple of ways. First off its easily foldable when I need to move it and you don't have to remove your controllers beforehand. Just fold it up and stash it in your closet or in the corner of your bedroom or living room and that takes about 1-2 minutes in all to do. Secondly the Playseat Challenge works with my racing sim controllers as well as my flight sim controllers and if you have a tiny bit of knowledge on how to modify then you can easily rig up a shifter on the side of the seat as well as a throttle quadrant for flying. The last great benefit for the Playseat Challenge is it DOES NOT BREAK THE BANK. It's the most affordable seat out there on the market and it's more comfortable then many other seats in the similar price range and believe me when your sitting in this seat for hours at a time you need it to be comfortable and not make you sore which after hundreds of hours of use already I can say I never am. Oh yeah one last added benefit is its adjustable which means if you prefer to sit straight up you can, if you prefer to lean far back you can as well or you can have anything in-between to exactly fit your comfort zone. Dare I even say you could even take a small nap in this chair if you where so inclined to do so by leaning it all the way back. I hope my review has given someone out there answers to their questions when considering a Playseat purchase!

    This is my first experience with putting together a sim rig. I am limited on space and needed something I could put away when not using, while still providing the immersion that a full cockpit does. The playseat challenge delivers in spades. From the build quality to the mechanical design I am thoroughly impressed.

    Having the wheel fold out makes it very easy to get in and out, while allowing you to have an excellent stability and cockpit environment when in use. I am 5'8 and had no trouble getting I to a comfortable position, with plenty of adjustment available to fit my 6 ft friend as well. The simple strap and backstop system means your pedals are rock solid without having to hardmount them. And the sliding system means you have lots of room to move the pedals and get into the perfect position.

    The seat is comfortable, with thick durable material and heavy duty velcro straps that can be adjusted to affect the support and seating angle. While not the easiest system, you can't really adjust while sitting in the seat, it only took me about 10 min of trial and error when I first set it up and haven't thought about it since. I can't really think of a better system for this chair that wouldn't increase complexity, price or weight so I can't fault Playseat for the velco set up. It works well, and is a good solution.

    It's not the most stable platform, which is to be expected from something as light as this. However your body weight keeps it well on the ground, and to be honest the little movement that the force feedback causes adds to the immersion for me, as some of the ffb is transmitted into my most, much in the same way motion from a car would be. However I have no qualms about the durability of the chair.

    The only concern I have is the plastic piece that locks the wheel carrier in place. I feel that if you didn't properly line up the metal tab with the slot in the plastic and forced it closed to many times that it would potentially break. However I am careful to line it up Everytime I use it and don't think it will break barring user error. I would have liked to see that part be metal as well though, for piece of mind.

    Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. I got it on discount, bit would t hesitate to purchase at full price.

    Solid 4 out of 5 from me, and a huge step up from other small or cpact alternatives. Great job Playseat!

    I was aprehensive about ordering this as it was a decent amount and I was a casual gamer. I took the chance and couldn't be more pleased. The seat was easy to assemble and is as easy to use as all the company promotions say it is. It took my driving game to the next level and I am driving much better than I ever did with just a controller. My only issue is that it's a little narrow in the knee area for those with bigger legs. I'm about 5'11" and about 230 and the bracket for the seat strap digs into my legs a little bit right above my knees. It's not a deal breaker though, as it's easy to ignore while you're racing. Overall, the seat is worth the money, even if you're a casual gamer.

    I'm glad I finally decided to purchase a racing seat! It's crazy how much a low racing seat changes how you feel while you play a video game. I use a Thrustmaster TMX Pro with the Playseat Challenge. The only problem when using the TMX is that the clamps hit the bar that supports the metal plate you clamp your wheel to. This is causing me to buy a hard mount adapter for the TMX wheel that I found online. The chair takes a little bit to get adjusted correctly as I am 6 feet 1 inches tall. I was able to get perfectly comfortable and love this seat. Overall I easily recommend it to anyone who needs to be able to quickly move their racing setup and/or fold it to put it away.

    Recently got the playseat challenge to accompany my Logitech G29. Quite simply, I am over the moon with the product. The quality of the materials generate great comfort especially when it comes to long sessions.

    The seat itself adds to the immersion factor of simracing. It really is a must to take your experience to another level on a reasonably tight budget or tight space.

    The seat is perfect if you are limited on space or need to move it around a lot. It is light weight, can be folded up in a minute and laid back out again swiftly.

    The stand that the wheel connects to is very sturdy and perfect for force-feed back wheels such as the g29. The plate can also be adjusted along with the pedal plate for comfort.

    In short, I would definitely recommend this seat due to the great value and quality you receive. A highly comfortable and sturdy rig that is perfect for those who are on a tighter budget and lacking space

    As a car designer, knowing the ergonomics of racing seats, this product is quite good for such simple structure. I was very skeptic in the beginning, however after ordering it, it blew me away.

    1. Delivery was quite faster than promised in emails. Therefore were very happy when i received earlier than i expected.

    2. Construction was quite simple, not too much hassle.

    3. Sitting process is also cool, when you see right away you don't feel the comfort but after sometime, you feel the ergonomics are good. I wish steering part was adjustable, so you can bring closer to yourself. But still really good.

    4. Overall impressions are quite positive. Worths every penny. Definitely awesome for such budget. Please keep it up!

    I had been looking for a simulator cockpit for a while as using a rolling chair with my computer desk was causing problems, usually it's hard to heel-toe if the pedals move away from you every time.

    Being an average married 30 year old, my wife controls every aspect of my life, and thank god she let's me have an office where I can play video games with her permission, but she wasn't going to let me add a big non collapsible sim rig to the room. WHAT AN EYESORE she would think, and so that wasn't going to happen.

    THANK YOU TO PLAYSEAT for making a rig which folds up to the size of about 2 folding chairs stacked on eachother, because of this I was able to slowly convince my wife to let me get the rig. My cables are long enough that all I have to do it's fold it up and move it off to the side of my desk when not in use, and I can unfold it and be back in action when I want to play in no time.

    Now I'm heel-toeing like a boss, breaking all my old lap records, and looking good doing it.

    Build quality is much better than expected given the low price, everything is very solid and I was even able to mount my shifter on the side with minimal wobble.

    Can't recommend this thing more. Thank God I found out about it.

    Very nice, comfortable, enjoyable and compact at the same time.
    Stable enough for slim guy and G25, easy to get in/out.

    The alcantara material is very nice and comfortable, I really like how compact and how easy it is to (un)pack it. Disconnect power adapter/usb put them inside the chair fold the chair, strap it on top, fold pedals, strap them - and that's it - can put it aside and clear the space.

    I use it with G25 w/o shifter, Oculus Rift, racing in AC. Previously mounted G25 on computer table and sat on dining chair - obviously quite an improvement from that - also feel my times/consistency improved with it.

    Cool product, thanks.

    This is a good starter seat if you are just getting into Sim Racing, which I am. Also great if space is an issue. As you can tell from the previous reviews, this is a solid choice.

    It has a good position and mounting for your equipment. Shipping was super quick despite coming from the Netherlands. Double boxed and easy to setup.

    I ordered the play seat challenge mostly for the easy storage. I don't have a ton of room so this is easy to store. I haven;t been able to use it much because of problems with my 458 wheel, but the few times I have it has been great. Ordered right from the store, came pretty quick, about a week, but worth the wait.
    I am short , a little over weight, so it is no problem getting in,a challenge getting out though!! I would load a picture, but do not have a wheel attached at this time, hopefully getting fixed!!
    I am looking forward to a lot of fun racing action!Thanks play seat challenge for making a great product!!

    After recently purchasing the Oculus Rift and some driving games I was looking for a wheel and chair. I got the Logitech G920 with pedals and began looking for something to place it on. A full sized racing chair was not a possibility. The prices were kind of ridiculous and I wanted to be able to store it easily when not in use. I was looking at the wheel stands and was about to pull the trigger on one. I wasn't sure what chair I would use with it and couldn't understand how it could possibly hold the wheel very securely. Then I came across the Playseat Challenge. I am glad I happened upon the perfect solution.

    After reading the reviews I decided to order. I couldn't believe how quickly it got to the United States. (3 days, I think!) The outer packaging was slightly damaged, but the second inner box was in perfect condition. I unpacked it and had it assembled in about 15 minutes. The Logitech wheel fit perfectly and secured with the included bolts. I was able to adjust the angle of the wheel platform, sitting position, and distance to the pedals so it fit perfectly. I am 6'3" 220lbs. This thing was plenty big, and sturdy enough for me to flop into it. It was also adjustable enough to work for my 9 year old. If you are much bigger than me it may get a little tight. The seat is about 19 inches wide and around your knees, where the wheel supports come down, is about 16.5 inches. Your legs angle in toward the pedals at that point and it fits me well with a little extra room.

    Everybody wanted to take a turn once I got it set up. The immersion is incredible between the force feedback on the wheel being passed onto the chair and the VR goggles. Did I mention this thing is comfortable? I told my wife to come check it out. The VR games made her sick to her stomach, but she comented on how comfortable the chair was. She said she wanted to watch a movie in it. I told her to get out and I got back to driving. She can get her own. For something that looks like a lawn chair in the box the Velcro straps across your back, molded headrest, and sturdy frame give excellent support. The wheel and pedals are held securely and allow you to really muscle them around without them going anywhere.

    Storing it away is as easy as the other reviews say. Fold the frame, strap, fold the pedals, strap, and slide it into a corner. No more than two minutes. When you unfold it the side Velcro straps put it right back into the position you had it in previously.

    For little more than a quality wheel stand, do yourself a favor and pick this up instead.

    So I was a little skeptical of this thing before I bought it. I mean $250 for basically a lawn chair with a piece of metal over your lap? How can it be worth that much? But I read some reviews, I was tired of my cheap setup, and I needed something that allowed me to keep my living room space too. So I pulled the trigger, and I haven't regretted it since.

    This thing is awesome. Super comfortable, great quality alcantara, great mounting points for the T150 (with Ricmotech adapter), and it even included hardware! The only reason I was frustrated by that was because I went and got the exact same bolts it came with because I didn't realize it had them with it!

    You can sit in the chair for hours on end and not worry about it, it doesn't get too hot, and there really isn't any noticable movement in the steering wheel plate.

    10/10 would recommend, totally worth the price. Just buy the thing already, you know you want it!

    This seat is perfect for enhancing your sim experience while trying to save a little space. I live in a condo and have a 5 month old son so saving space is definitely at the top of the list when I was searching for the right seat. It also works great with the thrustmaster t gt wheel!!! I was worried that the t gt would be too bulky or heavy but it works fine. I have the T3PA-Pro pedals and even though the provided strap doesn't fit over the pedals, the "pedal tray" (I'll call it) still holds the pedals firm in place. It makes it even better that it is possible to have a nice, affordable, and functional option out there for sim enthusiasts to still be able to enjoy their favorite racing games. Playseat bravo on this design, I could have leapt for joy when it arrived at my door last week!

    This playseat Challenge was the most adapted product for my needs.
    I do not have a dedicated room to play, so I needed a playseat really easy to install and to put away.
    I need not more than 30 seconds to do it and to enjoy my Project cars2 in VR mode with a wonderful Logitech G920 controller.
    I recommend this play seat very confortable.
