    What an incredible find and absolutely awesome service. Ordered on a Monday and was delivered on Wednesday of the same week. Way faster than ordering items from eBay that are shipped from the US and the seat came from Europe to Canada. Arrived double boxed, so shipping was awesome!

    For those that are looking for a SIM seat solution that can be put away when done playing, this is what you need. Setup is very quick, simple and was racing before you knew it. Love the seat, very comfortable and the ability to adjust the seat to suit whatever your needs are is fantastic. Takes less time now to setup and put away the game racing gear than before and way more comfortable.

    Now time to upgrade my wheel and pedals.....

    Keep the shiny side up!

    i just can say that it hold all this time like a boss of course after couple hours when i start sweat like a pig the seat material become wet as well but as a high quality material it was still confortable to drive and sit on it of course would be way better driving i think on a leather seat but playseat challange seat make a great job as well and i dont need to be worried about that can something go wrong with seat. so im happy about this your product but i will give 8/10 because no gear box holder and would be more comfortable that all rim would be a little bit wider but if we dont watch in these two options then 10/10 ;)
    but its only two problems wich i saw after hard using this seat
    the advantages of this seat is
    good price
    space saver
    giving all experiance of simulation
    love that i can controle seat how i want in all ways
    stability is amazing
    all those high quality stickers blowing my mind how they can hold me because my weight is 90kg
    and of course i love that high quality material
    and all design is really cool so just let you know that is amazing product. thank you.

    After using it for 2 weeks every night, I had to write a review for this product.

    Some background first. I had to upgrade from the Wheel Stand Pro which I used for 2 years. It did the job, but not quite. Having a separate chair was not comfortable enough for my back. I needed an upgrade. A full rig was out of the question, as our house doesn't have a man-cave. So my wife would not be happy with a rig lying around. I finally settled for the Playseat Challenge and man, still asking why I didn't buy this seat before.

    Setting it up was a breeze. But then came the real test. Sitting down in it. I was somehow doubtful it would be stable. So I cautiously got in the seat and WOW! You really feel you got into a race car. I had to adjust a bit the seating position by tweaking a bit the velcro steps, but that's it. And did I already say it's really comfortable? Heck, this seat is more comfortable than my Celica.

    Besides saving my back, another advantage I found was that everytime you open up the Playseat Challenge, it always gives you the same setup every single time, as if you're getting in your own car, which is great. Unlike the Wheel Stand Pro, where you have to fiddle around with the levers, so it's not always the same setup.

    During sim racing, besides being comfortable, you also don't have a bar in the middle, like the Wheel Stand Pro. which might get in the way (especially if you're using 3 pedals and heal-and-toe).

    Stashing it away, which is why I bought this in the first place, is quick and easy. Collapse the chair, strap a velcro band to secure it, wrap the wires around the pedals, collapse the pedals, strap another small velcro band and done - 2 min job flat.

    Get yourself a present, and get this chair. You won't regret it.

    Around two weeks ago I decided to go for a Thrustmaster wheel along with a Playseat product. Although at first I was skeptical about the rigidity and comfort of the Playseat Challenge, I am actually very surprised with how the seat feels and its stability.

    With regards to the wheel, I opted for the T300RS GT, as after reading numerous reviews this seemed like a great wheel at a reasonable price. Accuracy and force feedback feel great!

    In short, I recommend this combination (Playseat Challenge + Thrustmaster T300RS GT) to anyone looking to add to their racing experience and willing to spend around 600EUR.

    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. :)

    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).

    I received my Playseat Challenge today and hooked it up to my Logitech G29 wheel and pedals. The assembly was very intuitive and I was racing on Project Cars 2 in short order. I am 6' tall and weight 250lbs. and was concerned about how I would fit in the Challenge chair. All I can say is "wow." It is extremely comfortable and I am very happy with my purchase. I highly recommend the challenge for those who have a confined space to race in. It is excellent in every way possible. After a great session of racing, my Challenge cockpit folded into an easily stowed package. Thanks Playseat!

    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.

    Back in 1998 I remember playing Gran Turismo for the first time and being blown away. Mostly because finally we have the game most of us idealized a proper racing game should be. In 2002 I got my first racing wheel. The first driving force gt. Which I had bolted to a dinner tray complete with a rocking recliner my grandad gave me. Not exactly ergonomical Lol. Hell, a gated shifter was unheard of. I used to imagine what a racing seat at home would be like. Fast forward too today where sim racing has become sort of a snobs hobby. It's expensive. You guys at playseat have found a very special niche with the challenge. Cost, comfort, reliability & functionality. I think finally, we have the rig most of us idealized a proper home rig should be.

    I will begin by saying that I'm very happy with my purchase so far. I have put in probably around 12 hours of racing in it so far.

    Delivery was very fast, and the product was packaged very well.
    The construction of the seat surprised me by its sturdiness. It was very easy to mount following the included instructions.

    However, it is during the installation process that I discovered the few drawbacks.
    First, the included velcro strap isn't long enough to hold my Fanatec ClubSport pedals. Thankfully it's nothing a few zip-ties cannot fix.
    Next, as some earlier reviews have pointed out - there is no shifter/handbrake mount included. My Fanatec GT3 wheel comes with a mounting system (although a flimsy one) so I was able to mount the shifter this way.
    On the plus side, I was able to correctly mount my steering wheel using the attached hardware and pre-drilled holes.

    Cable management is tricky, if like me, you want to have everything attached all the time. You have to compensate for the chair folding in terms of cable length. This is not a design flaw - I don't think there would be a way of simplifying this.

    In usage, as mentioned earlier, the construction is very sturdy. It does wobble a little bit, especially around the steering wheel, but it doesn't break the gaming experience. This is the price to pay for being able to have a real racing cockpit in a small room.

    The folding aspect is great, it takes me around 2 minutes to fold the chair out and be ready for racing.
    Storage is easy, but beware of it tipping over if you have heavy steering wheel and pedals - just put it against the wall to solve that problem.

    There are two unexpected bonuses due to the design of the seat : First, no central pillar between the legs due to the wheel mounting system. You can move your knees around, like in a real car.
    Second, the Vibration and Force Feedback of my Fanatec gear transfers into the light construction of the seat so I'm able to feel the bumps and the RPM of the car in the whole body. It greatly helps the gaming experience.

    Once folded out, it looks and feels like a racing seat. It becomes the centerpiece of the room.
    Overall it is a great buy for someone without the space for a full-on racing cockpit but who wants to experience the game in a different way.
    It is relatively inexpensive for this type of quality. There are a few drawbacks but nothing major (although the shifter/handbrake mount would be welcome).

    P.S.: It's much easier to convince your wife of having one because you can easily stow it away!

    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 never bought a full sim rig or a racing seat with wheel mount because of the space. Since a I am no more kid with a personal room, I had the problem not to leave all my equipment in the room while I am not playing. Also, since I have a very limited amount of time available for gaming nowadays, my requirement was to be able to mount everything and play in a very short time, otherwise I would end up not even trying to mount my wheel and everything.

    After playing it’s easy to stack it somewhere in a corner, so it won’t be in the middle of the room when not needed.

    The playseat is stable and can be set up quickly with the help of the picture instructions. Adjustment to the size is possible with various straps using Velcro, and the Velcro fasteners are generously dimensioned so that they hold up permanently.
    The steering wheel (here G27 Logitech) can be securely attached to the console with the included Allen screws, so nothing slips back and forth.
    The bracket for the pedals can be pulled out to the desired length and then locked with clamping screws, the adjustment range is sufficiently large. The pedal plate rests against a crossbar and is attached from behind by a wide strap with Velcro, so nothing slips at all.
    The steering wheel console can be folded up to get in and out; it is attached to the steering wheel bracket with a sturdy clamping screw with a detent. This also enables the desired height adjustment of the steering wheel for driving. There is even an extendable side arm to prevent the seat from tipping when getting in and out. To pack away, I just lift the pedal bracket (attached to the chair so that it can be rotated) and attach it to the steering wheel bracket with the help of an enclosed strap with Velcro.

    In summary, I can say that after a few adjustments, this playseat fits me like a glove, even during longer online races (up to 90 min) I sit more relaxed than ever before. Gone are the days when the steering wheel clamps on the table independently or the desk armchair suddenly slips on the castors, I should have got hold of such a device much earlier.

    The price is maybe a bit high at around 200 € but I definitely don't regret the purchase and recommend the seat to anyone who has little space.

    Easy to assemble.

    Very comfortable, I think I could even work from here all day :)

    Even though it looks a bit unstable when you are not sitting in it and not driving, I didn't feel any wobbling while playing, it felt stable.

    One thing that is a but unfortunate is when you fold the chair you have to adjust the pedal positions and the wheelbase rotation, so when you want to play again, you will have to set it back to the position that's right for you. On the other hand, this makes the chair foldable which is a big plus for this chair.

    Tested with Logitech G29, didn't have any problem neither with controlling the car or the strong brake pedal. I had to get used to the different sitting position, but after 45 - 60 minutes it felt a lot better. The package includes 4 screws and the screwdriver to mount the wheel to the base.

    All in all, I think this is a great choice for people who want to add some more fun to the simulator experience but don't have much space and / or a huge budget. I definitely enjoy it :)

    I purchased a Playseat Challenge several weeks ago to pair with a Logitech g29. I love it! Very comfortable and immersive; it pairs extremely well with GT Sport and F1 2020 on my PS4. Excited to continue trying it with new games. The seat folds up very nicely when finished and honestly is quite comfortable just to sit in!. Would highly recommend - thanks Playseat! Will definitely be on the lookout for other pieces to add to my rig.

    According to this, playseat challenge was the perfect answer to my needs and I am very happy with the purchase. It is shorter but wider compared to what I was expecting, but still it is very fast and easy to hide and unhide. If you might have to move it between floors consider that it is a bit heavy when everything is mounted on it, but it is fully acceptable (maybe a kid won't be able to safely move it on stairs on his own). Last but not least, the price. The quality is good, sturdier than you might expect, but in the end 200+ € is not so far from a real full seat/racing rig. Mounting is ok, wobbles a little but not too much and the in/out mechanism is fair so far. But still, I would like to see this kind of seat in the 150€ range, it would be a steal. Will never happen tough, since other stands with no seat costs up to 120-150€, so they are all overpriced but in the end this playseat challenge is a better value and very fun to use.

    I bought this racing seat simply because it was the only one in the market that could fit my needs: to have a decent racing chair that I could easily fold away. This chair is perfect for that and I am very pleased with my buy. This can compete with normal non-foldable seats as well.

    Usually I had to set up my wheel, pedals and all the wires to my desk and pc before and take them away after every gaming session, which was a pain in the a**. This seat literally makes playing into plug and play because I can store it with everything attached onto it - I just fold it out in one minute, plug usb and power in and I am ready to go. Folding away also is super easy and fast, I can do it in two minutes. Both I do without an issue and it's not something you get tired of. Seat stores nicely as you can see in the picture and it is decent-enough looking for my wife to approve it in our living room when folded. It could look better though if the logo in the back wasn't there.

    For a foldable seat this is very comfortable. I can easily play for hours and feel good about it. I am 180cm/86kg and the fit is just good (would fit to at least +10cm/kg decently). Upper back is the only minus as the headrest come quite forward, but it's not an issue to me though.

    I paid 200 euros for this including the shipping (1,5 weeks to my door in Finland), which is bargain. These go easily 150e in after market, so you'll be able to get decent money back once you get room for a bigger seat. Price-quality is very good and the product feels very sturdy. It comes with two pairs of bolts for wheel and the tools so you don't have to go looking for those in a hardware store.

    What I would change in this is to be able to choose a seat with either right or left handed opening (when you sit into it). That would make the wiring more easy when you have PC on right hand side and also attaching accessories (such as gearstick) to the wheel bar more practical. Now I have to be very careful with usb-wire because it hangs high. Also the instructions could be clearer, especially regarding adjustments. There could be a scale (lines) under the wheel and in the pedal pipes so that it would be easier to find the best adjustments (tilt of wheel, distance of pedals) each time.

    This is super fun product and near perfection. Would recommend 10/10.

    If like me you are new to SIM racing and have limited space then this seat from Playseat is perfect. I bought the Logitech G29 steering wheel and pedals and it fits perfectly on the steering plate.

    There is enough room on the steering wheel plate for bigger wheels, and wheels that bolt down. The seat itself can be adjusted in multiple places to make the driving comfortable. Here are a few of the things I really like about the Playseat:
    1. It was relatively easy to set up. 2. It is well made, there are nice stitching all over. The PS4 logo and blue colour are simply awesome to look at. 3. Multiple places to adjust the comfort of the seat. This was well thought out. 4. The steering wheel has a lot of options. One can bring the steering wheel closer or further away. You can tilt the plate forward or backwards depending on your seating or arm position and getting out of the seat is easy, the wheel can be unlocked and shifted over to the left. The movement almost feels like it does when getting out of a racing car. 5. The entire Playseat can be folded up and secured in seconds and it takes up minimal space. It can also stand upright or be laid lying flat without the need to disconnect the steering wheel and pedals, which is a bonus because when it comes to setting it up to play, it is two steps and you are done. 6. The use of velcro to tie up is clever and simple saving time. 7. Customer Support has been excellent so far. No complaints.

    What I don't fancy:
    1. The back of the seat to the headrest is a little too steep and I found my back getting sore. If I was shorter, I don't think it would be a problem. 2. The set-up manual would have been better if it used real photos instead of drawings. 3. The Playseat doesn't come with a gear shift plate, which was a little disappointing. I see they can be bought elsewhere, but it should have been part of the seat.

    Overall, I am very happy with the seat. It has given me endless hours of enjoyment already and I can definitely say it has improved my driving ten-fold. If I had the space and or a room for a fixed chair I would definitely consider something bigger and better, but for the price, size and ease of use, it is perfect.

    Just unpacked and assembled my Playseat Challenge. Quality seems to be very good and stable, mounting of the wheel and pedals was no problem (Logitec). Seat is very comfortable for me (1.74 cm, 75 kg), not too tight at all. Forgot to connect the power cord to the wheel, so I had to mount it 2 times. Please make sure that you connect all cords to lo lower side of the wheel before mounting the playseat! Folded seat fits easily in a regular wardrobe. Wheel and pedals can stay mounted, very easy to make it ready for race again. Looking forward to finally get my PS5!

    I'm now on my 2nd Playseat Challenge, the first one buckled after two years of heavy usage, with a load-cell brake being too hard for the rig over time. Still, the combination of price, quality and size is hard to beat - of course, a more expensive rig will perform better, but for many people (myself included), a lack of available space makes almost all other sim rigs impossible to fit at home.

    The Challenge is super easy to set up and adjust. Again, if you're using a load-cell brake, make sure the brake pressure doesn't bend the rig excessively. From there on, you should be fine enjoying your Playseat Challenge for hours and hours.

    It also works for me because I am travelling between cities occasionally, it can fold and it's fairly light. Really recommend it for people who don't have much space or are travelling occasionally and want to sim race whenever they are!

    Ich habe den playseat challenge bestellt, weil ich mit einem authentischen sitzkomfort wie in einem Auto, meine Therapie ausführen wollte. Der Sitz erfüllt, was den sitzkomfort angeht, vollstens meine Erwartungen. Da ich halbseitig gelähmt bin, war mir natürlich Stabilität sehr wichtig. Auch hier kann ich nichts negatives sagen. Der Sitz hat mich positiv überzeugt. Er ist stabil, qualitativ hochwertig und außerdem auch ein Hingucker.. Lediglich eine Halterung für einen schaltknauf vermisse ich. Aber ich denke, hierfür gibt es sicherlich eine Lösung. Der Kundenservice kann mir sicherlich weiterhelfen. Ihre Freundlichkeit durfte ich bereits in einer Email erfahren. Übrigens, nicht zu vergessen ist, dass der Sitz platzsparend ist. Man kann ihn sehr gut zuklappen und ihn, falls nötig, in einem Schrank verstauen. Fazit: Klasse!

    Have you ever wondered what was the purpose in life? I know I have. Now I know it was to find this seat and drive in it.

    When it arrived and I opened the box, the room started smelling of roses and mythical plants until then unknown to man. The assembling part was both easy and yet fulfilling, as if I was accomplishing my true destiny in life, bringing something good into the world. The sound of the velcros on the straps still resonate in my mind, making my skin tingle at the thought.

    Once seated in it, it is like being cradled safely in the arms of a gentle goddess, knowing she'll give you her protection while you drive your virtual cars. Somehow the seats adjusts to your body as if it was made of an alien living textile alloy.

    As for storing, who could even think of doing such a thing? I know I haven't yet, but I have no doubt it would be very easy, just by looking at the marvel of engineering that this thing is.

    I am really impressed with the chair and the setup. It works fine and it takes small space when you dont need it. I love it in general, it is just that I am a big bigger (200cm and 100kg) and therefore is sometimes not perfect for me. Especially with the hooks on the end of "armrests" that kinda go to the inside and touches my thighs. And price could be a bit lower :)

    If you are having space issues but want to race nicely nonetheless, this is absolutely the way to go! It’s assembled very fast and then stowed away in not more than a minute. Plus the wheelbase and pedals can stay on, so you don’t have to worry about them either tidying your room. Only issues I had was that the headrest is angled slightly too much for me (which was fixed by lowering the seat position), the Velcro tape for mounting the pedals is too short for my csl elite pedals (workaround with zip ties) and that the mounting plate for the wheelbase has to be in its most forward position for assembly because of the screw layout, which makes it flex a little more than needed. All in all minor drawbacks to an otherwise great product! I am having a lot of fun with it.

    The playseat challenge is amazing. I got a ps5 and rally game for Christmas and was loving it. So I then bought a wheel and pedals. Then I was looking for a stand for the wheel and came across the playseat. From the images and videos I was amazed how it folded up so small with wheel and pedals still attached. So I invested in 1. Very easy to put together, very sturdy and comfortable. Im 6 foot 2 and 102kg and fit in nicely. The playseat has enhanced my gaming experience and i can fold it up and put it away in seconds. I absolutely love the design and would recommend it to anyone.

    Setup was pretty straightforward, it took me around 30 minutes. Instructions are ikea-style with pictures and no text although it's clear enough that it's not an issue.

    It is very sturdy, which is surprising considering it looks a bit like a lawn chair. It is definitely sturdier than what I had before, which was a wheel stand with pedals attached.

    For comfort, I still haven't found the perfect position yet, and when playing with a valve index, the cable doesn't really have a comfortable place to go. I might need to attach the cable to the side of the headset so that it falls off to the side instead of from behind. It is also unfortunate that the wheel distance cannot be set independantly. It is otherwise pretty adjustable, there's a lot of settings to play with.

    As for the rest, it does everything it's supposed to. I feel much more inclined to boot up my racing games now that I have this.

    Also watch out when buying from overseas, I thought I had paid taxes during the purchase but fedex made me pay additional taxes when it arrived.

    My case for choosing this product was because I have very limited space and was tight on budget. Therefore foldable seat was my only path. Surely Playseat Challenge is not the only foldable seat on the market, but it for sure was the only one about which I didn't hear people complain, it simply had no bad feedback, especially from users who's needs were identical to mine.
    As soon as my new Playseat arrived I fell in love. Unpacking was pleasing, getting it all together was a breeze and playing in it was just so much fun.
    First thing that surprised me was the materials and build quality. Not gonna lie, at first I had doubts about making this purchase as my expectations were far lower for this chair, I did not think it was as sturdy and well built. So while still assembling it I immediately understood what I payed for and that moment I saw that my money was well invested.
    Playing in it is really really comfy. I can sit in it for hours and there's no backpain, no discomfort. Adjusting seat position takes just a minute and is really easy to do, so getting that perfect seating is very simple. Seat itself is so comfy that the moment I get up, my cat occupies it instantly.

    So overall if you need something to put away, there's no other choice that would be so worth it.

    Habe mir vor 2 Wochen den Playseat Challenge in schwarz geholt. Nach mehreren Runden und Einstellungen in verschiedenen Rennspielen (Forza 7, Project Cars 2, AC) kann ich folgendes Fazit geben:

    Aufbau:
    - leicht und schnell erledigt.

    Qualität/Comfort:
    - Trotz des einfachen Prinzips sehr stabil und robust,
    - Lange sessions sind absolut kein Problem und können
    aufgrund des guten Sitzkomforts gehalten werden,
    - Passgenauigkeit mit einem FANATEC Set istmöglich
    und auch montierbar, lediglich wenn man eine breite
    Pedaleinheit hat, wird der mitgelieferte Klettgurt zu
    kurz.

    Größe und Abmessung:
    - auch Aufgebaut kein großer Platzfresser,
    - Zusammengeklappt schnell im Schrank oder einer
    Nische verstaut (Base und Pedale können montiert
    bleiben),
    - ich mit 195 cm und 100Kg habe sehr leicht und gut
    Platz, Sitze bequem und Stabil, lediglich die
    Kopfstütze ist nicht exakt da wo sie sein soll.

    Im großen und ganzen kann man den Playseat empfehlen. Er braucht nicht viel Platz, ist Stabil, sieht gut aus und erfüllt seinen Zweck. Auch kann man ihn sehr schnell verstauen wenn man fertig ist und nicht mehr benötigt, was als Argument verwendet werden kann.
    Abwicklung und Versand liefen absolut perfekt und reibungslos. Auch hier Daumen hoch!!

    La Playseat Challenge es para mi el conjunto ideal para volante y pedales para arrancar en los simuladores de conduccion.
    Se monta en unos 8 minutos y se plega en segundos.
    La verdad es que por mi tamaño he tenido que ir ajustando las tensiones de las cintas varias veces hasta encontrar un mayor confort. Vale la pena dedicar un buen tiempo antes de jugar, tu espalda te lo agradecera.
    En general es lo que esperaba aunque si en algun momento dispongo de mas espacio en casa me encantaria comprar otro modelo de Playseat de mayor confort, porque la verdad que es muy divertido poder jugar a simuladores con el mayor realismo posible.

    Das Zusammenbauen ist ein Kinderspiel, man braucht überhaupt kein Werkzeug.
    Durch die Klettverschlüsse kann der Sitz perfekt an die individuellen Bedürfnisse angepasst werden.
    Im Einsatz hat sich der gute Eindruck noch einmal bestätigt.
    Das Lenkrad (Thrustmaster 300 RS GT) konnte mit den mitgelieferten Schrauben + Inbusschlüssel gut montiert werden, das Lenkrad sitzt bombenfest und die Neigung kann schnell und unkompliziert angepasst werden.
    Wenn der Sitz nicht im Einsatz ist, kann er zusammengeklappt und verstaut werden. Auch das funktioniert erstaunlich schnell und unkompliziert.
    Ich würde sofort wieder auf dieses Produkt zurückgreifen.

    Prior to receiving my Playseat I was clipping my new wheel to a board clamped to the coffee table with wood clamps and a 4 by 6 board to get it to the right height, pillows behind me to be as comfortable as possible all the while nearly, no regularly pulling the wheel off of the board as my excitement grew, the foot petals sliding out from under my feat as the carpet grabber couldn't hold up to the excitement. With a bolted down steering console and foot petals firmly attached I can get as excited as I wish and not lose control due to the security of the console and petals. My back does not hurt after a couple hours of driving. I feel like I am in the cockpit of my Cayman S on the track and that results in as much fun and excitement as I feel I can get without replacing rotors, pads, brake fluid flush, and new tires every 3-4 track days, not to mention being able to drive all winter when the track is closed. Well worth the purchase and I bought the least expensive Playseat available. I am looking forward to upgrading as time allows. Good stuff!

    I was sceptical when I ordered this seat but I was blown away when it arrived and I assembled it. It's super sturdy, it has basically no movement at all when I'm smashing it out on F1 2020 or Dirt 2.

    I use a Logitech G920 and it integrates with the seat perfectly.
    This seat is awesome in every way. It's fully adjustable to suit any preferred comfort position!

    The only reason I gave it 4 stars for comfort, is because I personally like the pedals tilted up slightly instead of being flat on the floor. I made a foam block to lift it and now it's perfect.

    Maybe the next gen pedals could have height adjustment at the front to give the user some pedal tilt adjustment if preferred.

    Buy this without any fear of quality or design, It's Fully Built for Purpose and excels at it in every way!!

    This thing is really everything i could have ever wanted. Comfy as F***, stable and big enough for a grown man and everything at a really competitive price point.
    I use it in combination with my Thrustmaster T300RS. Everything fits just fine, no need for any fiddling or "custom made" solutions - it just works.
    The other big PRO is that you can store this thing in literally any place that is ~25cm wide / high. This way i can play my simulators on a really good rig and still have no issues with the wife complaining about any bulky thing.
    I play my racing simulators in in VR and i just have to say this thing makes the overall feeling so much better.

    I did quite a thorough research on what was the best portable stand for the racing wheel pedals even before we both them and had almost set my mind on a sturdy stand from Amazon. When the wheel arrived though it had this little brochure of the foldable playseat and it looked like exactly what we wanted. Of course I did additional research as to be honest these things while affordable are not cheap.
    I ordered directly from Playseat and the order arrived very quickly, it was packages very well and it took us no more than 10 minutes to assemble.
    The seat is excellent - comfortable and fun and the best is that you can fold it and move it away in seconds.
    Having said that while is perfect for people up to 165cm it may come on the shorter side for taller people, even for me 170 cm the pedals come a bit close. Most probably there is a way to.adjust the seat for taller people but I still don't know it as we have the seat only for a couple.of days.

    I live in a pretty small apartment. I'm at the point where pretty much any new piece of furniture or decoration is just going to crowd the living space.

    Not this majestic device though. This seat folds up and fits in my closet neatly. When I need it, I unfold it, plug in two cables and go racing.

    The frame is sturdy and the seat itself is made of the same material as the bucket seat in my 944 Spec. So while I can't for sure say that it improved my lap/stage times, I can definitely say I feel more at home than having my wheel clamped to my desk with my swivel chair rolling around.

    Hace unos años tuve que desacerme de una de las primeras sillas de simulación que diseño Playseat por falta de espacio en casa. Desde entonces no volvñi a jugar a un segmento de juegos que me apasiona las carreras.

    8 años depués tuve una referencia de un amigo sobre esta nueva silla que a simple vista puede parecer que no va a cubrir el hueco que dejo mi primera silla. Tras ver y leer diferentes analisis del producto donde lo ponían por las nubes decidí lanzarme a comprarlo.

    He estado probandolo más de 2 semenas con un volumen de horas de juego importante, y os puedo adelantar, que el asiento vale cada euro de lo que cuesta. os explico a continuación los motivos:

    1. Me ha devuelto la posibilidad de volver a jugar a juegos de conducción con las mismas prestaciones que si tuviera un asiento no plegable de conducción.
    2. Su facilidad para plegarse y guardarse detrás de cualquier puerta es maravillos, no da ninguna pereza plegarla y juegar en menos de 2-3 minutos estás delante del volante jugando.
    3. La rigidez de la silla es impresionante, apenas se notan las vibraciones de force-feedback del volante o el de los pedales.
    4. El nivel de setup de la posición de conducción es impresionante a la misma altura que sus hermanas mayores. Puedes incluso regular los lumbares.
    5. Peso muy contenido que permite no dar pereza para transporarlo y usarlo.
    6. Ideal para cuando no tienes una sala dedicada a tus juegos y debes jugar en el salón como es mi caso.
    7. En caso de querer venderlo posteriormente, el mercado de segunda mano es excelente, apenas hay vendedores porque tan pronto salen son adquiridos por los compradores.


    Espero que este análisis os anime a comprarlo porque de verdad merece la pena.

    Un saludo

    very good packages. Easy to prepare for game. I am still looking for the best fit due to different possible regulation. Good quality material. If I have to mention some improvement, the paint around tubular structure is quite fragile due to friction and the metal base for the steering tend to move on the vertical axis. This is not dramatic but it is not ideal during driving session. The problem is due to the fact that if you locate the steering wheel to the right height, you tend to support your arm on the steering wheel generating an additional vertical strenght. The issue can be solved by changing the position so as by leaning elbow on the playseat armrests but this not ideal when driving and quite unrealistic.

    Recently purchased this chair to use with Logitech G29 steering wheel and peddles. The wheel and peddles fit perfectly and enough adjustment in the chair to get a good position.
    The chair feels sturdy and comfortable. Getting out of it can be awkward. The chair is compact so doesnt take up too much space and can be moved around.
    Very happy with the playseat chair.

    The Playseat Challegen feels like kind of a premium product, for what it wants to be. Everything seems to be well thought through and especially the alcantara-seat itself looks and feels great.

    The only reason, I only rated four starts on design is, that you can't mount "fanatec csl elite pedals" propertly without further materials (in my case, a custom made plate)

    I bought the playseat challenge as a birthday gift for myself, and I am very satisfied.

    Before the playseat, I had to mount to my desk my wheelbase. This operation was annoying, and sometimes I did not used the rim because I did not want to mount it. I bought the playseat mainly because I wanted to keep mounted my fanatec rim, so that I can just "plug an play" it when I have some spare time.

    The playseat challenge is perfect for "weak" rims, such as the logitech g29 or thrustmaster t300, whereas it has some play with more "beefier" wheelbases, like the fanatec CSW 2.5 that I have.

    The overall build quality is more than satisfying, but it has some little flex in the wheel base mount. I currently fixed such flex by placing the mount wheelbase against the desk, but I plan to 3D print a custom part to remove the flex.
    There are also other tutorials that use some camera mounting arms to remove the flex, which costs less than 15$.

    Despite this little flex, the overall experience is very good: the seat is very comfortable (I also use it to watch some TV series), and more importantly there is no play under braking.

    I think that the playseat challenge is the best budget simrig that you can buy, especially if you just started simracing. Not only it makes you more comfortable and more consistent under braking, but also you feel more immersed in the racing game.

    I raced karts and prototypes when I was younger but those days are all gine since I no longer wish to invest that much time and money away from my wife and my kid.
    Although she doesn’t mind me having a simulator at home, she does mind if it’s always going to be “there”. I won’t place it in my kid’s room, I can’t possibly put a rig in the living room, in plain view for my wife’s non-sim racing friends to admire, let alone our bed I raced karts and prototypes when I was younger but those days have passed since I no longer wish to invest time and money away from my wife and my kid. room.
    The answer came from Playseat’s Challenge seat and It fits perfectly in my closet. I saw a lot of reviews before buying it and most said that although it isn’t exactly a rig, it is a great product for newcomers into sim racing.
    I have over 3000 hours of sim racing under my belt and maybe half of that in real life racing. I ain’t no newcomer, and still I believe it has everything a decent rig should have, the sole exception being the fact that it’s got an up-and-down wobble due to the weight of the wheel and the driver’s hands pushing down on the wheel mount in a springy fashion. My brain quickly adapted though and by the time I was flying through Flugplatz in the Nordschleife I had forgotten everything about that wobble.
    In every other regard the structure is stable and sturdy. I use Fanatec hardware including the shifter and the V3 pedals for which I had to do some DIY since the shifter mount from Playseat is not compatible with the Fanatec shifter and the pedals move a lot if not properly attached to the pedal base with some brackets.
    The pedal base is very adjustable but the seat position is not as great as I thought it was going to be. To me, the position of the headrest leans too much forward and that put some strain on my upper back, especially when using a VR headset. I still have some adjusting to do though.
    The seat is light and easy to lay. The suede is very appealing and the design speaks of racing. You can almost smell the petrol. The seat adapts to the shape of your body since it’s held to the frame by adjustable straps of velcro. Very smart design.
    You could of course spend up to 2000$ on high end rigs but in my opinion it’s not going to be worthwhile for just a little more comfort and (that i can relate to) a steadier wheel mount, unless of course you’re all about looks and you want a crazy looking rig.

    Make Playseat Challenge V2 steadier on the wheelbase and push the headrest just a tad further back and you get an already great product into a must have for sim racers of all trades.

    8/10 overall.

    Was looking for a compact rig option and after some thorough research and testimonials from other users I decided to go for the Challenge. At first I only intended to use the chair with another compact wheel+pedals stand, but ended up using the whole thing as intended. Turns out it's surprisingly sturdy and comfortable and most important of all - easy and quick to set up, put away and even carry around. Thanks to this I am now looking forward to introducing simracing to my grandfather (in a safe, virus free environment, of course), who has been involved in the car industry throughout his working career and is singlehandedly responsible for my interest in cars.

    Challenge definitely gives best value for the price. There are minor issues which can probably be justified by the fact that the seat has to be foldable and take as little room as possible. Which it does. Perfect for people that have limited space and casual drivers.

    No need to highlight good things as you can see those for yourself so I will focus on issues I have encountered.

    Connection between pedal stand and the seat is a bit loose so pedals move away from center position which is annoying to return. Wheel base plate can be wiggled easy when it is mounted all the way fron or back because it creates a bigger leverage. This can be fixed with 3d prints but I think it should be solves by playseat and added in future versions.
    Seat did come a bit misaligned so a strap on the right side is tighter then on the left even though they are velcroed at the same distance.
    However this does not affect anything except my OCD.

    Definitely a good buy and good entry to a simracing cockipt.

    I'm enjoying my Playseat Challenge. It's a product which was designed in a very smart way, as it occupies roughly 1/6 or 1/8 of the space (being conservative still, I guess) when it's not in use, thus contributing to the peace in the household. :)

    It's showing to be robust enough even when subject to some "extra forces" when races get challenging. Only a bit aprehensive on the plastic pieces that are used to tighten the pedal support in place and the ones that connect it to the seat's framem but time will say if I'm right or wrong.

    letzten Donnerstag bestellt, am Freitag, per FedEx da gewesen. Da ich ne kleine Wohnung habe, schien mir das die beste Lösung.
    Obwohl ich bedenke hatte, Stabilität, Komfort usw. doch nach ein paar Minuten des Aufbaus und Einstellung des Sitzes, was soll ich sagen...sehr bequem. Als Lenkrad nutze ich das
    Trustmaster T80 Ferrari 488 GTB Edition. Wegen der Klemmvorrichtung für das Lenkrad muss man allerdings die Bodenplatte versetzen. Ist ja kein Problem, die vier Schrauben der Platte lösen, versetzen, Schrauben wieder anbringen und festziehen. Passt alles perfekt inkl. Pedale. Persönlich spiel ich hauptsächlich PSVR und muss sagen, wow, bin sehr zufrieden. Wenn fertig, Stuhl zusammenklappen und Bingo. Bilder dazu spare ich mir. Gibt ja genügend der anderen Reviewern. Also den Sitz kann ich nur wärmstens empfehlen wenn es um Platzprobleme geht.

    Typical expectations for a "budget" racing seat would be cheap, flimsy construction, limited adjustments and for it to be marginally better than a desk mount.

    Not here. The Playseat Challenge is a proper rig; one that you could easily swap between casual gaming and serious sim racing. The Playseat team have put in some serious thought into putting this together, staying true to the quality of design and construction Playseat is known for.

    Fully adjustable, I managed to get the perfect seating position in minutes (6ft, 90kg). The Alcantara finish makes for hours of comfortable racing while the rig itself suffers from little to no flex with my Logitech G29. One thing I would love is for the pedals to be height adjustable but a small (fixable) detail on an otherwise fantastic product.

    Look forward to my next purchase!

    Thanks Playseat team!

    Love it, love it, love it!! If you are even just considering purchasing the playseat go for it you won’t regret it I promise you. It’s easy to set up and though it’s a foldable chair design it is surprising sturdy. It is reassuringly heavy but still easy to fold and put away. It’s really ideal if you don’t have the space to have it out all the time. The seat itself is just like a race seat is really comfortable and feels expensive. Once inside it just takes you to the track I have the g29 wheel set and it was wasted until I got this seat. Now i just love it it so stable and comfortable the pedals and wheel panel can be adjusted to perfect height and distance and it’s just great fun you just get lost in the track it just feels so real. Having the combination of a wheel stand pedal area and seat it’s just perfect for me. Go on do it and thank me later

    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.

    If you are faced with the decision to buy a racing seat, there is one model that seems to be impossible to get past. Are all the praise justified, is the seat really as good as many claim? I can anticipate one thing, yes, it is!

    Spoiled for choice, isn't it?
    Not everyone has the necessary space for a permanent race seat, others don't want it for other reasons. And a desk mounted steering wheel that is constantly screwed on and off? Not many alternatives remain. Of course there are still the classic wheel stands, which have their justification. However, you need a suitable seat for these too. Nobody wants to use a rolling office chair for this, even an armchair is too uncomfortable in the long run. Yes, even a decent gaming chair costs as much as the folding Playseat Challenge. If you start thinking about it now, you already know, yes, a folding seat for simracing is needed.

    Unboxing:
    When you unbox the Playseat Challenge for the first time, you're surprised how compact everything is. The term "camping chair" in the guise of a racing seat is truly false, because both the fabric cover and the workmanship (including the frame) are robust and of high quality. Once you sit in the seat, there are hardly any vibrations. Everything is firmly in its place. Of course there are differences to a fixed rig whose goal it is to avoid any vibrations. But if you could expect this from a collapsible chair, you would have a wrong idea of what this chair can do. The feedback of the chair is very good, the robust construction leaves no doubt that you can have many hours of fun here permanently.

    Rally specialists should be told that even rough steering movements are swallowed by the Playseat Challenge, nothing slips and the fun of the game is not spoiled.

    Playing comfort:
    I have now spent many hours in front of the monitor and am still very satisfied with the comfort of the racing seat. It folds in and out in under a minute. Accessories such as a digital dashboard (with a small external screen) can be attached as a DIY solution, but of course are not officially supported by the chair. Instead, it scores with a flawless pedal mount that won't slip even when the brakes are applied forcefully. If you want to look for a shortcoming, then there where the hook and loop fastener securing the pedal unit is attached. This loosens from time to time and if you forget the occasional check, it can happen that the pedals slip out of the holder when folding. I circumvent the problem by attaching an additional strap, then everything holds securely. But here we are talking about a little thing, straps just give way.

    Steering wheel and pedals:
    As steering wheel I use the TMX Pro (the Playstation-pendant is the T150) which is distributed by Thrustmaster. As pedals the well known TP3A. Unfortunately the TMX Pro has the peculiarity that in connection with the seat no mounting with screws is possible. The competition from Logitech G29/G920 makes it better here. The T300 from Thrustmaster can also be screwed on without problems. However, the TMX Pro's clamping device is better than its reputation, and if you want to avoid the steering wheel slipping minimally due to the seat constantly folding up and down, it's best to attach the hook and loop fastener supplied with the chair under the steering wheel. The counterpart on the steering wheel mount of the Playseat Challenge. In combination with the clamping device of the TMX Pro, nothing can slip anymore. But be careful, the hook and loop fastener holds enormously, a new loosening is only possible under effort. In connection with this steering wheel there is an adapter from Ricmotech, with which the TMX Pro can be screwed to the bracket of the Playseat Challenge. This would be the expensive additional solution.

    Against tilting:
    An important detail that almost goes under is the anti-tilting device at the bottom of the Playseat Challenge. If you forget to pull it out, the Playseat Challenge can tip to the side due to gravity when getting out of the seat. So, don't forget it! But the user manual points this out and is altogether well described.

    Save space:
    If you're not in a particular hurry, you can also just fold the pedals and push the seat to the side. This saves space and the racing seat can be left standing. But even when folded, the racing seat does not need to hide. When looking in the cupboard every day, the seat invites you to play again and again.

    GT or Formula 1?
    When it comes to seating comfort, I can reassure anyone. You sit comfortably for many hours. Especially since the seat position can be adjusted from upright (GT position) to half lying (Formula 1 position).

    Conclusion:
    What remains to be said about the chair? It's a piece of equipment that will provide a lot of fun for a long time, an elementary object of the sim world. As the basis for the steering wheel, it makes a decisive contribution to the fun of the game. After all, who can keep up for a long time when after an hour your back hurts from the couch chair? So it's better to grab a folding chair like this and be rid of your worries. Simracing is becoming more and more popular, the Playseat Challenge provides many reasons why this is so.

    Considering the challenge is an entry level sim racing rig I am delighted with the comfort and emmersiveness it gives you the feel of driving a car and for the price tag it can’t be beaten would highly recommend to anyone looking to get into sim racing.

    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.

    Great seat for those with limited space, it packs away easily with steering wheel & pedals attached, build quality is good, it's sturdy and is very comfortable for those long race sessions. Would definitely recommend for those wanting to get a little more out of their race sims without breaking the bank.

    Ich hatte die Wahl zwischen einem Wheelstand und dem Playseat Challenge.
    Ich habe mich letztlich für den Playseat entschieden und das war eine gute Entscheidung.
    - Der Playseat läßt sich leicht zusammenbauen und auch wieder verstauen.
    - Man sitzt sehr bequem in ihm.
    - er ist sehr robust
    - und das Preisleistungsverhältnis stimmt.

    Very clever design to fold away so small and yet still be very comfortable to use. Adjustable enough to get into a good position for me (68kg and 178cm / 5ft 10). Also feels solid against force feedback of wheel (using Logitech G920), and like it will be durable. Great product!

    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.

    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 !

    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......

    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.

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.

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!

    Really enjoying this!
    I am using a Logitech Momo wheel with the Playseat Challenge. All I had to do was remove the center desk clamp from the Momo. The two "front edge" clamps work fine to secure the Momo to the baseplate using a couple pieces of wood to create the "desk depth" that the Momo clamps expect.
    Very happy!

    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 :)

    Got it, set it up, race. This is the most comfortable chair I’ve sat in and it’s perfect for racing without going for it’s bigger siblings. I wish I got it sooner because the way everything is set up and the adjustments make it more comfortable to race in and I do feel more relaxed and faster compared to using a desk and computer chair. The quality is great and it’s really stable for what it is. Highly recommend this for its portability and overall comfort for this price range.

    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 had recently purchased Logitech G29 racing wheel from discount and naturally only after few tries I started to want a proper seat too. Since I have a girlfriend who I share the apartment with something very fixed was not an option. Luckily I found Playseat Challenger and ordered it.

    Product arrived well packed and the box was way smaller than I expected (even was able to transport it in my Porsche which is rare for any kind of boxes). After opening the box instructions were very clear and assembly of the seat was quick and easy and entirely tools free. My Logitech wheel and pedals also fit perfectly on it.

    I have been using the chair for some weeks now almost 5 hours a day and I can tell it is way higher quality for the price than I expected. It is very comfortable to use even long times and haven't shown any sign of being too weakly built on any part. Also it folds away while keeping my pedals and wheel on it so zero extra hassle for taking them on and off either. In the design they seem to have thought of everything since there is even a small pull out side support to stop the seat from falling when you open the wheel part to get into the chair.

    It is first racing seat I have no regrets for going for this one. It doesn't feel any worse than my friends more expensive fixed one. Only happens to be cheaper and way more girlfriend friendly.

    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...

    I've only had my seat for a couple days and I'm pretty happy with it. The quality of the seat entirely is really well made. The fabric is very soft and the frame is solid and the velcro strap seem to be some kind of magic holding my 260lbs self without worry. My only grievance with the seat would be that it's a bit small. Not in the sense of usability, but being I read that it has a 330lbs weight limit, I figured it would be a bit wider than it is. I got thick legs and the metal oval rings on the straps for holding it vertical, dig into my legs, Even though I have the seat laying fairly flat. And let me tell you, there is no "leg room", with the swing arm design and the narrowness of the seat, everything is a bit cramped.

    Overall though I really like the playseat challenge. It's not without its faults, but for the price this is a really good option. I just wish it was a bit wider. NOTE: there is no shifter placement on this chair, you can get the official shifter mount bar from playseat, but I recommend rigging up your own shifter mount with some clamps and angle iron.

    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 ....

    Delivery was not under 48 hours, but as it came to Chicago from Europe for free in 72 you can't argue much. Have spent a few multi hour sessions in the challenge and have been surprised by the comfort. I went with this over the other options because of the fold and store capability. The fun/comfort and enjoyment of the first few days had me looking at the other playseats on offer. If you are 50/50 on getting one of these versus sticking with a controller, take the seat, worth it by all accounts.

    Ero alla ricerca di una postazione gaming che mi permettesse di giocare lunghe sessioni con “assetto corsa” comodamente, ma non avendo una stanza gaming dedicata il problema si presentava di difficile soluzione. 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

Il montaggio è veloce e facile, ho impiegato meno di 30 minuti per montarlo ed installare il volante e pedaliera. Ho preferito questi prodotto rispetto ad altri per motivi di spazio, in quanto si può chiudere su se stessa lasciando il volante e pedaliera attaccata e sinceramente occupa poco spazio.

    Cosa altro dire....io sono contento dell'acquisto, fatto direttamente sul sito del produttore, prezzo ottimo visto la manifattura del prodotto. Consigliatissimo!!!!

    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.

    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!

    I love to drive, not that great but I love it anyway. I am always stuck trying to get my TV tray in the right position and the pedals locked into the carpet. What a PAIN!

    Guess who got a Playseat Challenge, right, I did...

    Love it!

    Easy to setup. Very solid, especially since it folds up. It is also pretty comfortable but a bit narrow for my somewhat over-size hiney.

    Time to race, pull it out, fold down the pedals, sit down, drop the wheel and everything is perfectly setup.

    Company coming, it is out of sight in 30 seconds.

    I love this chair and wish I had gotten it sooner. If you are on the fence, come on in, the water is perfect, you will not regret it.

    Ok, I'm a recovering car/F1/adrenaline junkie and one thing led to another, bought a high end NVIDIA gaming card, then a gaming keyboard, then a TMX Thrustmaster, and it wouldn't fit on my desk SO I bought this chair! I live in an apt in Manhattan (a big one, with two kids and wife, however, so no room and flack will be taken about filling it up with my "junk..."
    GAME CHANGER. With the wheel (and the arguably weak pedals with the TMX, but who cares, can upgrade later :)); and this chair, force feedback on high and I'm having an absolute ball playing F12018, Dirt, and attempting Asseto Corsa but damn that game is twitchy. I have driven cars on multiple race tracks around the world and well, I just don't have the time to do that anymore. Look, the thing is rock solid, folds really well, and you can the guys that designed and built this thing give a sh*. Not some cheap Asian knock-off, poorly designed item. They ship it to you from Europe via Fedex (included, amazing, you can track it all the way)! JUST GET IT! You can see the other kids stuff etc. in this pic, but you can also see how nicely it tucks away, and just open, plug in, and ready to go!

    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

    When my seat arrived, it was like Christmas morning. The shipment arrived 2 business days after my purchase which is amazing, especially considering that I am in the US. The seat itself was very easy to set up. The instructions were very clear. I had the chair assembled and ready for an initial shakedown in about 10 minutes. Adjusting the seat to find my most comfortable position was a process that took a couple days of trial and error. While this may seem like a long time, it really wasn't, and the belt system used to suspend/adjust position makes this seat extremely custom fitting.

    I was immediately shocked at how much better I could focus on driving instead of wrestling with a wheel stand or pedal movement.

    Overall the seat feels very sturdy. I am a big guy, 6'2" (~188cm) and 230 lbs (~104 kg), so this really says a lot.

    All of this AND it folds up! Are you kidding me? This feature makes for a high spousal approval rating.

    My only issue so far has been the retaining piece that secures the steering wheel arm. It appears to have gotten bent at some point. This causes a little movement of the arm. This doesn't make the seat unusable, but it is just annoying. I am hoping that I can replace the part.

    This seat is a great deal, and at its price, it is a no-brainer.

    After months (if not years) of tricky installation of my racing wheel, I FINALLY found the seat that suits all needs.
    - My wheel fits perfectly on this seats (and I'm not afraid anymore to break the table on which I fixed it before)
    - I can use the screen in the living room (the biggest at home) without having to move the screen or putting in place a crazy installation.
    I simply move the seat (with everything attached on it and cable tighten with the equipment provided), in front of the TV, plug the 2 cables (Power and USB), run a couple of races and then move it back to his closet.
    Being able to store/hide the seat in a closed (or anywhere) is a life changer as the "lady of the house" is not complaining anymore about my stuff lying around :D

    Thank you playseat for this amazing product!!

    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.

    The play seat is better than I expected. Heavier than I expected (which is a good thing). Fun and comfortable for hours and easily adapts to different size people.

    The only ways I can see to make it better would be a tilt option for the headrest and a slider, fore and aft, for the wheel.

    Keep up the good work. I’m going to get another for my trailer.

    Purchased after returning stand with center post. The Playseat Challenge was recommended by my brother. Setup was easy and straight forward. In use the seat is comfortable (average height and heavy - not fat build) and easy to use. I noticed in a forum where it was mentioned that the seat could constrict at the thighs, I have not noticed any problem. I like the seating position and feel.In play it is stable and holds the wheel (TM300RS) firmly and steadily. The pedals work well with the velcro strap holding them securely in place. The entire assembly folds easily and quickly and is easy to store when not in use. Overall I am extremely pleased with the Playseat Challenge and would recommend it to others looking for an easy to use and not overly expensive gaming rig.

Ordered right from the store, came pretty quick, about a week, but worth the wait.

    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!

    I am a Disabled Veteran that lost his left thumb which greatly changed my ability to game. I love racing and first person shooter games but found it very hard to play anymore. Since I no longer work I was on the market for a seat for my Logitech g920 wheel and pedals to make racing easier for me. With the lack of funds and the wife riding me about money I found the Playseat Challenge and decided to buy it because they offered free shipping and it was priced right. When it showed up the setup was quick and easy. It took a few minutes to adjust it to me and I was off racing. Having severe back problems after five surgeries I was worried about the comfort but I am able to sit in it all day racing with no problems. I will absolutely suggest this product and company to everyone. I will also upgrade to better products from them as funds allow. Thank you for your quick delivery and great product!!

    I am new to sim racing and did a lot of research online to try and find the right platform for my Thrustmaster T300rs wheel and pedal set. I needed a portable solution, since I don't have the room for a full racing seat setup (or the funds to buy one). It came down to the Playseat Challenge or one of the competing wheel stands. Many online reviews stated that they ended up replacing their wheel stands with a Playseat Challenge, and they wished they had bought the Challenge first. That really helped me decide, and I'm glad I avoided that mistake. The Challenge is everything and more than I expected, and even though it was a little more than I had hoped to spend, I've discovered that it is well worth the price. I highly recommend the Challenge to anyone who only has room for a portable racing seat. Don't make the wheel stand mistake, save up for a Playseat Challenge. You won't regret it.

    Like most game console drivers, I can only dream of having a full sized driving seat setup. Room limitations and the need to move my wheel out of the room so family life can resume, have led to multiple wheel mount purchases. Finding a decent wheel stand is not too hard, but that still leaves the chair dilemma, the need for comfortable chair with good driving position that is portable. A quick Internet search led me to the Playseat Challenge. It is the perfect answer comfort, stability, and portability.

    The Challenge arrived in the USA in less that a week and was well packaged, double boxed, and in perfect condition. Assembly was a simple process and was completed by following the clearly illustrated and diagrams in the manual. There are no language barriers to overcome; just follow the pictures and adjust the seat to position of your choosing. My Thrustmaster 300 wheel fit perfectly with the pre- drilled holes that accommodate most major wheel companies' products. An allen wrench is included along with mounting screws so there is no hunting for tools in the garage.

    As far as driving goes, I can drive for much longer and in greater comfort using this seat. It is quite stable, though getting in and out of the seat takes some getting used to especially when the chair is in a steeply reclined position like I use. Once you get some practice egress is easy (I am 65 so...). Once I got to driving I shaved two seconds off my best lap time at Abu Dhabi and I am consistently faster than I was with my wheel stand and chair. The wheel does move up and down a bit, but it is not noticeable while driving and blends with road surface irregularities and bumps quite realistically.

    Setting the seat up and taking it down are faster and easier than my previous wheel stand and chair. It requires only one trip to the closet instead of two and everything I need to race is right there. I can't recommend this chair highly enough for anyone who needs portability, comfort, and more speed!

    Arrived quickly from overseas and setup was pretty easy. Took quite a bit of Velcro adjustments to get my ideal sitting position, but once it's set, you don't need to mess with it again. It's basically like an inclined hammock and super comfy, can sit in it for hours with no issues.

    My only complaint, and this is minor, is the mounting surface for the wheel base. It's fairly sturdy, but even so - when mounting a Thrustmaster T300RS-GT Edition, there is some up/down wobble when steering. I have never used a wheel before so I didn't know the base and wheel would be so heavy to cause this, but to be fair, it's about as sturdy as engineering will allow for a portable/fold-able chair.

    It's not problematic when playing because you're immersed in racing and don't really notice, but in the future when I have more space I will absolutely get a full rig so the wheel feels rock solid. I get a bit enthusiastic when driving and tend to push/pull the wheel and I fear I may break the mounting surface eventually on this product.

    I thought that after getting a racing wheel my sim experience was changed, but I didn't expect it to change so dramatically after getting a racing seat...
    Space is an issue here, and I was looking for something that I can easily stow away when not playing, and can quickly set up when I have 20-30 minutes to burn on the road. A friend pointed out the Challenge, and I shortly had one ordered.
    Shipping was quick, setup was a breeze, and once I sat in and played once I can't seem to get back to the "casually grabbing a controller and racing a couple laps".
    Totally worth it, and I was actually surprised by the build and fabric quality. Highly recommended.

    I made my own little setup with some PVC and wood when I first got my wheel. It was neat, but I always knew I wanted to get a real seat. I also knew that I couldn't get a full seat, because I simply don't have the space. The Challenge is perfect for me. Set up and tear down in less than a minute, and it really takes up no space when folded up. It has surprising sturdiness for both wheel and pedals for being a foldable frame. It also has just enough adjustability to fit just about anyone. This chair is amazing.

    The next best thing to a fixed unit. So much better than TV trays, sandbags, stands or all the other things i went through. Gives a good "in car" feel and can store it away when done. One consideration if you plan to buy - seat angle and distance from wheel move at the same time. Body size and your ideal position will make a difference if this seat works for you. I let the straps out for a more laid back angle and found myself on the floor after a short time. Put some straps around the front and rear bars touching the floor for extra support and all is good. Overall one happy driver.

    Since buying a steering wheel to enhance my driving games I wanted something better to attach it to rather than using my Black and Decker work mate and a dining chair (see before and after photos). After buying the Playseat Challenge as an early Christmas present to myself it has completely changed the experienced once again. Extremely easy to put together, comfortable even after hours of sitting in it and best of all perfect to store away in the under stair cupboard. Easily the best purchase I have made for my PS4, two of my colleagues purchased one also and they are equally as impressed.
    Thank you Playseat!!

    The chair has good functionality to the design for the hardcore gamer. It is well constructed and has the ergonomics needed for long periods of playing that is indicative of the gaming world.
    I felt the pricing was a bit high but if it lasts then I guess the price is justified.
    I would recommend this chair for those that have a variety of games they have in their collection. With the ability to connect the peddles and steering wheel for the racing/GTA type games makes this chair an all round great addition to your world of gaming!

    I bought this rig because it was simple and easy to move. I was experiencing back pain due to sitting in a kitchen chair. I league race which calls for long hours in the seat due to high volume of practice. I can achieve that with ease with the playseat challenge. It forms to your body supporting every contour. It’s like a baby in a cradle. Because my butt isn’t going numb and I have no back pain, it’s led to better lap times and way more consistency in the long races. You can litteraly sit in this all day long without any issue. The quality is above what I would expect and it’s way more beefy than I thought it would be. I would have loved to had an adjustment to rake the pedals but I’m planning on building a platform to do that. The pedals being flat does put a little strain on the knees after long hours of racing. That being said your average Joe will never know the difference. Like I said I practice for long stents due the demands of endurance racing.

    If you want something that isn't a permanent fixture in your room, but are pretty serious about your SIM racing, then you can't really top the Challenge. Most wheel stands cost just a little less and with this you get the whole set up. It is quite comfortable and is easy to fold up and put in the closet or wherever. I just got mine last week and have already logged quite a few hrs in it. I just wish I had more hands so I could give it four thumbs up. Excellent piece of kit. Thanks

    So I am new to Sim Racing and just bought my first wheel (Thrustmaster t300rs gt) along with the Playseat Challenge - What a HOOT! I cannot imagine having one without the other - the Challenge is amazingly comfortable and sturdy for a light collapsible design, and at 200+ lbs my wheel and pedal set remain firmly in place. I don't believe there is a better system out there for the money. I am so happy I didn't try and make do with a stand, as the playseat brings a level of authenticity to the experience that I don't think could be replicated.

    After picking up a Logitech G920 on a Black Friday Deal, I wanted a cockpit to complete the experience. I looked around on Amazon, eBay, etc, and found a few options that fit my needs. Originally I settled on a wheel stand made by a competing company that can eventually be upgraded using a real car seat but I decided to cancel my order and get the playseat challenge instead due to the cost and the ability to fold the seat up when not in use.

    Shipping was fast and the seat itself is high quality. I love the seat and when adjusted it feels perfect for what we are all looking for, racing! I also grabbed the stick shifter adapter but you can also make due using a few RAM mounts. If you're looking for a cockpit yourself, look no further as the playseat challenge is an amazing seat.

    It was Thanksgiving in the United States and I had just been given some of the best news of my life. I was getting a Playseat. No longer would I be relegated to a plastic chair and a rickety wooden table to conduct my Grand Turismo Sport racing. I had been given the green light and was ready to place my order. I searched for hours, looking for a “deal” or a coupon code but nothing would work. I chalked this up to the superior reputation of the Playseat name. Obviously they wouldn’t lower themselves to parlor tricks to garner recognition. Their name speaks for itself. Not only that, the Playseat Challenge was already on sale! Wasting no more time I delved into the website from my phone. I easily found my item and added it to my cart. I thought I’d try one more thing. Utilizing the chat function, I asked the beautiful young lady (she had a picture in the chat) if she would give me free shipping since it was my birthday. She politely declined. Undeterred, I pressed on. Item added. Shipping calculated (about $40 to the US). Paypal information entered. Submit. Woohoo! Now I just had to wait. How long, you ask? Well, I got back on the chat and asked my fair assistant and she quickly replied that it would be 5-8 days. For such a long journey, I was quite impressed. Notifications arrived in a flurry. My own personal Playseat was in the mail within a day. The Fed Ex tracking indicated that delivery would be 2 weeks, much to my chagrin. But wait! It arrived early! On the 7th day to be exact. I was elated beyond words and quickly set to work on assembling my racing seat.
    Done. Yep. Assembly was a breeze. The instructions are illustrations only but it’s really pretty self-explanatory. Now that the chair was assembled it was time to adjust. A word to the wise: Do NOT attempt to adjust the chair whilst sitting in it. Unless you WANT to be splayed out on the floor with your girlfriend laughing at you. With that lesson learned I tried out several positions until I settled on a very laid back stance with my feet far in front of me. It’s amazing. I feel like a champion when I race now and my lap times have already improved. The fine alcantra suede really makes it a comfortable “ride” too. So far, I have zero complaints. Well, it’s a little hard to get out of sometimes but that’s not the chair’s fault. It’s my fault for making the position so low and for being 6 feet 2 inches tall and for not wanting to stop racing.
    You know what else is great? I had a party the other day and needed space so I just rotated the steering wheel down and folded everything up and moved it into the closet. Easy peezy.
    This is a great product and I encourage anyone that doesn’t have the space or money for a fully actuated racing dungeon to try this product. Tell ‘em I sent ya. (it won’t help you out, but they’re pretty nice anyway)

    I'm beside myself on how "brilliant" they made this Playseat Challenge - the fact that it's not only comfortable and the ease of access to use it, it actually folds up to take up less room. The high quality material and the durability makes you feel like you are in the DRIVERS SEAT. Great product and would 100% recommend. Also, I received the product within 1 week without any issues at all. Easy and simple to put together - great for kids and adults of all ages !!
