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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Really happy customer right here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    I have a Thrustmaster t300rs gt racing wheel and bought this chair to mount it on in order to race on my ps4 and pc. This chair has far surpassed my expectations. I have had an absolute blast with the beginning of my new hobby of sim driving. This chair is sturdy (I'm a big guy at 6'4" and 300lbs) and comfortable. I have no issues with my height and the adjustments that it allows for the wheel height and distance, along with the distance to the pedals. I would recommend this product in a heartbeat, and already have.

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

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

    I was looking for a good quality set up to use for F1 sim driving.
    I looked at various options available and decided that a Playseat was the way to go.

    Then came the discision of which one to buy.

    The range of Playseat products is excellent and there is someting for all budgets and needs.

    I finally settled on the Evolution beause the more upright seating position if better for me personally.

    It arrived very quickly and was quie easy and quick to set up.
    Build quality is very good and it is sturdy without being too heavy.

    I use the Fanated CSL Elite F1 and it fitted perfectly.
    I have diven many laps on many tracks and find it is extremely comfortable.

    My car control and speed has improved significantly since using the Evolution which is a big plus point for me.
    I drive every week in a League race which means I am in the seat for quite some time so it is important to be comfortable to be consistent.

    Would I recommend the Playseat Evolution?
    Yes I would, and I already have!

    Upgrades from a playseat challenge and I am totally happy with it. The playseat Is not cheap but worth every euro, i additionally gotnthe seat slider and a floor mat - making it easier to adjust it when the kids want to play, without sacrificeing tje wooden floor.

    Two minimal complaints: installing the seat slider is a bit tricky, esp. because its full of grease. And there is a little flex in the steering wheel holder - I do not think, that it makes any difference, but the steering wheel moves slightly.

    I recently treated my self to an upgrade from my Playseat challenge and logitech set up to some fanatec gear with the Playseat evolution. I'm so glad that I did. To start with the delivery was prompt and the seat was well packaged and protected for transit. The instructions are simple and clear and while building the seat the quality can be seen. Once completed ( in 30 mins) the finish of the seat is superb. My fanatec wheel and pedals bolted straight onto the pre-drilled holes and the cables were easy to route and secure with cable ties though I did need to source some nuts and bolts for the pedals.
    I have now had several sessions lasting well over an hour at a time with the seat and I can say that it is very comfortable and stable with very little flex from the frame. There is a lot of adjustability so finding the right driving position was easy. My only criticism would be that the angle of the back support cannot be adjusted but this is only a minor gripe given how much of the rest of the chair can be moved.
    Finally onto the part my Wife likes, I can easily stow it away by separating the seat from the wheel/pedal mount. The seat folds up and goes in the cupboard under my stairs while the wheel and pedals go behind my sofa. This takes seconds to do and means I can clear the living room ( at least until I set up the spare bedroom as a sim room!).
    In summary the Playseat Evolution is a Great value peice of kit!

    I decided this year to treat myself to an upgrade from my trusty Playseat Challenge and Logitech G29. 4 days after ordering the Evolution it arrived. To start with everything is well packaged and protected for transit. After unpacking and checking the parts it took around 30 minutes to assemble, including the adjustable seat rack.

    The instructions were easy to follow and the finish of the parts is very good. It looks very cool and high quality. My new Fanatec gear bolted straight on and is solidly kept in place. Once seated it took a few minutes to adjust the driving position but again this was very simple thanks to the generous adjustability of the Evolution.

    The seat is comfortable so long sessions will not be a problem and there is very little movement from the wheel or pedal mount. When not in use I split the seat in two, storing the chair under the stairs and the wheel/pedals unit behind the sofa which my Wife finds very nice!

    In all, given the quality and finish of the seat, the price is worth every penny and I would recommend the Playseat Evolution to any one who wants to take their sim racing to another level.

    Today I have finally been able to use my Playseat Evolution having waited to receive my new wheel to attach to it. And I can happily say that I'm impressed. This was an upgrade from my Challenge seat and it is an improvement in all areas. Delivery was fast and everything is well packaged. The build quality and finish is excellent. It was simple to assemble and is very stable. My fanatec kit bolted straight to the mounting points and is very well secured. The cables are easy to route and a couple of well placed cable ties keep things nice and tidy.
    The seat itself is very comfortable and I'm sure some long sessions will be no problem ( today I drove for over an hour). There is plenty of adjustability so finding the correct driving position is easy. For me the ability to separate the seat from the wheel/pedal mount is a bonus as it allows me to stow it away. To finish it off the Playseat floor mat provides a decent non slip base. In summary, a great peice of kit!

    I recently brought the evolution white whilst struggling to find a good chair. This chair is perfect for me I love how it feels very similar to the seats in my car. I brought mine with the seat slider and gear shift holder which I would highly recommend to anyone semi serious about doing some sim racing/driving. Moving from a wheel and pedal stand and separate chair to this has been perfect, effortless setup and easy to swap the wheel over. 100% would recommend.

    Iv been sim racing a few years, but using a wheel and pedal stand with a pc chair. Desided now was the time to finally get a seat and rig where seat position could be same all the time and so i dont have pain in my lower back if i did a endurance race.
    So took the leap and placed my order. Really quick delivery and on time as per the tracker.
    The putting it together was pretty straight forward. Id say toughest part is actually getting the pedal and steering colum positions just right but not to difficult.
    Seat is lovely both in looks feel and comfort. Since getting the seat in the right positions for me iv even notice my lap times starting to get faster! So even better!
    Overall this is a great product which i have no regrets making the leap and getting. If you thinking about this then you should go for it!

It took around 30 minutes to fully set up and connect my wheel and pedals without any hassle, it even comes with a few extra screws to attach them. The seat is OK even though I'm not a fan of leather seats. All I all it's great value for money, I'd definitely recommend it.

    Very pleased with my order from Playseat Store, I bought this as a birthday gift for my partner. It was delivered within the 48 hours as promised which I was surprised about due to the ongoing climate. I had tracking updates all the way up to the item being delivered. The item was double boxed and seemed to be easy to assemble (didn’t do it myself), took a few times for him to get the right seating position but once he had it, it was good to go. Would definitely order from here again and would highly recommend. Thanks.

    The okay seat evolution is a great seat, it's very comfortable if you're gaming for extended amounts of time. It's very easy to build and set up and feels very good quality. However being a taller person I feel as though there could be a little more adjustment between the pedal and steering wheel positions. Overall it's a fantastic platform and a good start for any sim racer or casual gamer

    This is my review of the Playseat Evolution and Gear Shift Holder PRO

    By Harry Shreeve aged 14

    Playseat Evolution and Gear Shifter PRO review

    When the package arrived very shortly after purchase (very fast 48 hour delivery considering it came from another country) I rushed it inside to release it form its box. The wonderful looking seat was packaged perfectly and safely, leaving it impossible to become damaged. I removed the chair from its packaging and with a smile on my face I constructed the fine looking racing simulator. At purchase I was worried of the hours I would have to spend building it; however I soon realised upon installation that this was going to be a very quick task. The instructions were informative and easy to follow. I sat in the seat to test its stability and feel, however found myself struggling to remove myself from the seat due to its sheer comfort. I could sleep in it! I am typing this review whilst sat in it! When using the product you find yourself to feel just like you are sat in a real car, as it gives such a realistic feel, it really is the perfect racing simulator set up, a real 'must have item' for any car enthusiasts. Personally I use a wheel with force feedback (a Logitech G920) and was worried the seat would wobble when the force feedback chirps up like a raging bull, however the whole item is rigid and could take whatever the wheel could throw at it.

    To summarise in one sentence I would say: A must have item, rigid, beautiful, comfy and perfect.

    Purchasing the seat was simple and quick, you just search your item click on it, add to basket and safely and securely order your fabulous new racing set up. But there is more! You can buy accessories to further improve your already awesome Playseat, for example you could take it up a notch (in terms of realism) and purchase the seat slider which gives you the ability to move your seat back and forth just like a real car! This is also handy if your mates or any visitors fancy a drive on the rig, and they are taller or shorter than you, this is the perfect accessory to easily change the height, so anyone could use it! Also, if like me you have a gear shifter there is the Playseat Gear Shift Holder PRO which is firmly secured onto your Playseat and is adjustable for anyone who wants to use it. The Gear Shift Holder is very stable and refuses to wobble no matter how rough you are with it!

    So finally what would I rate this perfect product on a scale of 1 to 10? 1000000000000000 is what I would rate it. It really is the perfect racing simulator from Playseat.

    Thank you Playseat for this wonderful package, with amazing value for money. It is the best birthday present money could buy.

    This setup has made it more comfortable for driving for long periods. Back still gets a bit sore but I've put a pillow behind me to support my back.

    Apart from that I don't have any complaints, easy put together, well made and has a lot of adjustability.

    Would recommend for someone who is just getting into sim racing.

    Very happy with my new seat, is a lot nicer/better than my wooden DIY one. Used with a Logitech G920 + Shifter, feels comfy, solid and easy to move around. Easy to setup using the simple and easy instructions and I like how cable ties were included to help manage the cables, also bought the GearShiftHolder Pro and my only criticism is that there is no instructions for installing it on the left side, you just have to figure it out yourself. Otherwise very happy and loving it so far and loving the suede, thank you!

    People say that the best way to make you dream come true is to do that when you're adult hah. Frame and seat quality is top of the lane. Alcantara feels well done, when you sit down, it feels like your mom hugs you tight, so you could be safe. Talking about the frame, i have some issues with it. There was some top rusts, although it doesn't effect anything, i still wasn't pleased to see it. If you liked putting lego while you were kid, this stuff is a good test of your long gone skills. Just be focus and check all manual books before you start putting everything together and of course don't forget to tight everything up, cause you don't want you seat moving backwards when you pressing your load cell brake. If i would come back in time would i buy it again? Answer is yes. Even though it's a wee bit rusty in some places (probably cause they were stored in cold or wet facility) it's still worth money and all that time that me, putting it together, and the engineers, that created it, spent. Fast delivery, good and safe packaging, can't wait to work with these guys again. Stay safe out there, think is that, is what you want, is that gonna suit you, and only then buy.

    The Playseat Evolution as a product has brilliant adjustability and makes whatever game you are playing more immersive. I would definitely recommend getting a force feedback wheel, which you can buy for playseat store and in my personal opinion the Alcantara version is worth the extra money.

    The adaptable positioning of the angle of the pedals and distance of the pedals from the seat makes this product versatile as you can put it into an ‘F1-esque’ position for games such as F1 2019 but you can also put it in a more road car like driving position for playing games such as Forza Horizon 4 and the Crew 2.

    The quality is better than what you would expect from something this price, it feels like something that would have cost £400+ but it cost me £291.36 inc. tax + delivery!

    It have a perfect amount of cushioning on the seat, not too much that you start to sink into it too much like a bean bag yet not too little that after sitting in it for a while you can feel the metal inside the seat. I would definitely recommend the Alcantara version because that little extra cost means that you have improved comfort and with the white or black evolution the fabric starts to stick to your skin after a while (I have tried out my friends) but with the Alcantara version you don’t get any of that.

    The design makes the product stable, robust, Good looking and easy to move/ put away into something like a cupboard. The fact that the seat folds in half makes the process of putting it into a small space incredibly easy and the fact that it is easy to assemble means that you can take off the pedal each and the staring wheel column to make it easier to put it in a smaller space.

    Finally it provides great fun and provides an immersive experience that makes you feel like you are in a real car.

    If you are thinking of getting this product and you don’t already have a force feedback wheel I would definitely recommend getting a wheel and seat bundle from the playseat store as you get a small discount off the seat if you buy a wheel as well.

    I finally decided to go for it and order myself a playseat, not knowing that 2 days later the whole country would go into lock down due to the coronavirus pandemic! Somehow it still arrived the following week, one day ahead of schedule even, and it certainly has got some good use already during this strange period.

    I've had a steering wheel and pedals for almost 2 years now, but due to not having anywhere suitable to mount them and not finding time, I have barely been able to enjoy them. Now thanks to Playseat I finally can do that, and I really am enjoying it so much, maybe even more than I thought I would. I only now wonder why I waited so long to buy one...

    Regarding the seat itself, I am very happy with the product. It is comfortable, it's got full adjustability to get the right position, and it's very sturdy despite being more towards the lower end of the market in pricing. I do fully recommend it to anyone considering buying one, particularly if you are not able to or don't want to spend the money on a more expensive setup.

    As others have said, the assembly was very straight forward and I had it all ready to go in under an hour, including with the seat slider that I purchased additionally. It handily comes with all the tools you need (a couple of Allen keys) and even extra bolts for mounting the pedals. That part was the only bit that I had a little difficultly with, which was aligning the holes of the pedal plate to my pedal unit (g29) but for now I have attached it through the lower row of bolts only (there are 2 rows on this unit) and it feels very strong and secure.

    Overall, a very happy customer!

    After doing research and deciding on the Evolution there are no regrets. The seat just plain works. The seat is comfortable. The set up was easy, the Logitec G29 fits, though 2 holes for the pedal didn’t quite line up- no big deal. I share the seat with my kids and it takes seconds to change/adjust the seat for driver changes. We got the seat sliders as well and fell that completes the setup nicely.

    First I would like to say this is my second playseat. My previous seat was the challenge i love this seat because it was foldable and it huge me. It was very comfortable. That said the playseat Evolution is very strong and sturdy and easy to assemble. The instructions was easy to follow. But take a little time getting ues to, the seat is wider and easy to get in and out of. I also love that you can adjust the pedals. Overall my racing lap times have decreased, i don't know if it's because of the new seat but i do think it probably because I am very comfortable. Love it!!

    I was after a gaming seat to suit a rather unique set-up and the specification of the playseat evo looked (and is) perfect. The seat is comfortable for extended periods of time, the build quality is very good, no wobble or play in anything. The assembly instructions were easy to follow and it didn't take long to put together. Oh and it looks great.

    On a side note I found the customer service team to be friendly and helpful.

    Highly recommended

    I had ordered the mat but I didn't arrive with the 1st shipment, but was there the next day by the same Fed Ex driver. He was excited to know how I liked the seat, so I invited him in to check it out!
    He loved the seat and mentioned that he did flight simulation and was gonna check out Playseat!
    The mat really finished it all nicely and will save my flooring.

    After many years of non playing video game, this year is a Reborn for me with E-racing. I was playing Gran Turismo, 20 years ago, and now i re discover Gran Turismo with a Playseat Evolution and a T300RS GT.
    A New Era of video game is in front of me with this kind of equipment.
    All the material is installed since 2 days, so it is a little bit too early to have a right opinion.
    I already have ideas to upgrade my Playseat.

    I’ve been using the playseat for about 1 month now. Setting it up was straightforward and took me about 30 min. Thrustmaster T300rs could be mounted on it easily.
    The racing experience got so much better with this Playseat. No more back- or legpain after multiple hours of racing. The seat barely moves while driving.
    Materials used are very decent and durable. This is a one-time buy (until you want to upgrade ofcourse).
    The seat can easily be adjusted from small kids to tall adults.

    The Playseat Evolution Alcantara is a very nice racing chair.

    It was delivered in a few days and setting it up was very easy. I have also bought the seat slider, which is useful if more than one person is going to use it.

    The Playseat Evolution is compact, but it does take some space, even when folded. It is very robust and somewhat on the heavy side, and even though you can move it around, you cannot easily lift it.

    It adds a level of realism to racing games. I highly recommend it.

    When my seat arrived, I was very eager to assemble it and see how it is. It was a nice and easy assembly of all the parts. The instructions were pretty simple. I am currently waiting for the Fanatec wheel and pedals so my sim driving is limited to the wheel and pedals that I have for the ps3 but the kids are having some really good fun with it and thats a real bonus.

    I will have to wait for my steering wheel and pedals to be delivered by fanatec and then give it a proper test.

    Overall, my review for the Evolution Alcantara is very good and at a reasonable price. It is stable and doesn't move and it is reasonably comfortable too, the mat helps to keep the seat in position so I would reccomend buying the mat too.

    I have already reccomend this playseat to a few of my friends so we can compete whenever we visit each others house.

    The Playseat Evolution is my first experience with personal Sim racing, I was looking a long time at various options but I am satisfied with my decision on the Playseat Evolution.

    Shipping- Shipping was was good considering this product is available to be shipped worldwide. Shipping was done by Fed ex in a week.

    Pros
    -Alcantara material is very nice, it is worth the money over the regular evolution material.

    -An optimal seating position can be achieved even without things like the seat slider add-on.

    -Extra screws where included which worked to mount the t300rs.

    -The steering wheel post does not block you getting to the brake pedal if you left foot brake and correctly adjust the pedal mount and the steering wheel mount.

    -When driving, the whole set up feels generally solid, there is some flex in the pedal and steering wheel mount but it is really not noticeable when you are focused on the track.

    -Nice velcro pads are included to make sure everything is stable and that you don't scratch your floor.

    Cons
    -If you want to do a proper set up, this will take at least one hour, but this is expected with a rig at this level.

    -This is a good option to get into sim racing if you are SURE that you want to be serious about this hobby. If you might lose interest after some time, a rig like this might not be for you.

    -The seating position is low to the ground, so you will need something to put your monitor at the same height as the seat.

    Overall
    -This is a good product, but as most things it is not perfect, however once everything is adjusted and dialed in you will find it meets all of your on-track expectations.

    Happy driving!

    The seat arrived more promptly than expected. It was a little tricky to put together, I could have used an extra pair of hands. The seat slider made it harder but was worth it.
    The driving position is good and my logitec wheel and pedals attach to it firmly.
    The centre post impedes the brake pedal very slightly but thats a minor gripe.
    I haven’t used it at length and I’m a heavy guy so can’t vouch to how it stands up yet but so far, i would recommend this product and i would buy it again.

    Alcantara leather feels great but the slider mechanism is a must.

    It has some minuses like there is no hight/back adjustment (my tv is higher and would have liked a bit of adjustment there). My back also hurts a bit after 1h of continuous use, but a mate of mine had no problem sitting in the same chair so it might just be my back :)

    Other than that you have to have space to store it in the same room as the packing requires some unwanted steps.

    i've been debating if i should invest in a racing cockpit for several years. I finally decided to purchase the Evolution Alcantara and a G29 wheel. Setup was easy and i'm not the hands on type at all. Frame is very sturdy and all components are adjustable. The cockpit contains a bar down the center, i haven't had any issues with left foot or right foot braking, though right foot braking is more comfortable. Gaming in a racing cockpit definitely adds an awesome level of immersion, so if you are on a tight budget id definitely recommend the Evolution Alcantara + G29 setup :) Also i improved my lap times on GT Sport after 1 day of use ;) so that i'm super happy about :)

Instructions are clear and all hardware and basic tools included (it'll be easier if you have your own better tools but it's nice they are included). Assembly takes some time but the quality is great and it comes with extras to mount things and tuck cables. Overall a very sturdy design that can be used for different setups. Very happy with my purchase.

    The seat itself is very well made, and is almost perfect. The rig itself is very sturdy with good quality components well designed.
    The only flaw i can make is the lack of adjustment on the steering wheel angle, having an adjustable plate like the pedals are mounted would be a much better solution to allow rake adjustment.

    Going from a wheel stand to this is an absolute delight. I have a Logitech G29 and it works beautifully with it. Having the wheels and seat and pedals all braced together means you don't get the usual distractions of a wheel stand constantly trying to shift position.

    When you get the box you will think "Well they forgot to pack something in here" because it is far too small to contain everything. I can only assume the guys at playseat store spend half their life in a sardine packing factory and the other half playing tetris, because from this small box emerged everything I ordered.

    All the stuff is good quality and fits together well. Don't rush the build part, enjoy it. look at it like it is the best meccano set you will ever use.

    Once built dont go strapping down all the wires to the frame straight away, have a few hours of getting used to it. I thought I had the perfect driving position but after playing for a couple of hours i tweaked it around, so best to get happy with the set up before you commit to where you run your wires.

    If you get a shifter stand get the ones that attach down near the seat and not up by the wheel, it is a much more natural place for it to be.

    I am 41, i should have grown out of stuff like this but I was grinning like an idiot on my first go. Love it.

    Super fast shipping to start off. Plan on mounting a Logitech G920 with it along with the shifter. Everything is exceptional l, but one concern that I noticed before my wheel arrives is how flimsy the wheel bracket or holder is. You get a little movement which isn’t the end of the world as well as the pedal support. Other than that everything else is superb. The quality of the seat and fabric is top notch and the seat slider and shifter add on is great quality as well. Just need to see how it handles with hours of use. I would give it 5 stars, but more like 4 or 4 1/2 due to the wheel and pedal supports.

    Unboxing:
    Laying out, reading instructions and checking parts 10mins

    Typically i check items, available tools and instructions. All items packaged well. Each item easily identified with instructions and complete.

    Assembly:
    Took about 30mins (two people)

    At first the number of items seemed a little daunting and the instructions were more visually than descriptive text. However, once working through the visual instructions, i found this better, more clear; which helped the speed of assembly. For example the instructions made selection and location of fixing part easier.

    Some notable things during assembly:
    The seat slider is greased to enable smooth action, be careful not to get on hands and transfer to seat cloth.
    When installing the foot plate consider the angle of your pedals, saves time when later setting up and adjusting.

    Also, its a bonus to have help when aligning items during assembly, though not necessary as one person could easily assemble; as the rig seem designed for intuitive assembly. I used the supplied allen keys and spanner, although adequate found the spanner on the small side for gripping


    Setting up and Adjusting 15mins (one person)
    I installed a Thrustmaster wheel and two pedals system on the rig which was a straight forward bolting and clamping process.

    Adjusting the rig was easily done with the seat slide mechanism and adjusting the main body slide for legs and steering wheel height. This was good news, as there are four other gamers (sons, daughters) in the family of varying sizes wanting to use the rig. Infact i tried each person when adjusting 7r - 14yr kids who found the rig comfortable and stable.

    One note on adjusting: As i had estimated the foot plate angle during assembly, no adjustment needed. Although, when testing comfort and position; i found the usability of the pedals were slightly impeded by the rig, as being too central. Which meant couldn't use similarly to a typical car. Fortunately the rig has a versatile foot plate, so pedals could be offset to the right. This made the usability better.

    Overall:
    The rig is good value, top build quality, easily put together and adjustable. The only small design flaw is perhaps the pedal position, being a universal and not custom rig, this can be forgiven. One easy fix would be to widen the pedal foot plate, or redesign the steering column in a way legs don't straddle the central assembly, perhaps a u shaped design.

    I decided on the playseat evolution alcantara considering the price and the other reviews I read about.

    Overall it's an amazing seat to have. I'm using it with the Logitech g29.

    Just make sure to setup everything to your liking as it does require some fine tuning to get it setup perfectly.

    I just have two complaints:
    1. The piece of metal (for the pedal plate) that is supposed to pass through the steering support thingy was not fitting at all. That's because the hole at the bottom of was steering support had a dent so had to hammer it a bit so it'll pass through. This has caused a problem when trying to adjust the steering position since it doesn't slide over it freely.
    2. The centre steering post. Initially it was constantly hitting against my left leg when I used the brake pedal. After adjusting the pedals to the left, it is much much better but still not perfect though.

    I spent a lot of time looking at mounts for my Logitech G920. I can say with certainty that this is the best entry level mount on the market. Most of the forums I read compared the Playseat Evolution to mounts from Obutto. I haven't tried the Obutto but the Evolution is so sleek and portable in comparison. And the price is just right. When I ordered my Playseat I couldn't complete the transaction. I was getting frustrated and contacted customer service. I received a quick response from a real person. It turns out my credit card company was to blame. The order was quick and painless and the unit arrived a day earlier than expected. My first impression was that of the packaging. All of the pieces had ample protection and we're packaged in a relatively small box. After taking the pieces out I was struck with joy and excitement after realizing how absolutely solid the components were. Even the nuts and bolts that hold it together were solid and heavy duty. The seat itself is very attractive and the alcantara was good quality. The stitching was nice and getting the seat to fold/ unfold was very easy. The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. The entire installation took me about 20 minutes and the tools were included. After I completed the install I mounted my steering wheel and pedals. My G920 mounted perfectly and I was very pleased that I could route the wiring through the steering column. I was so pleased to see that Playseat included the hardware to mount the wheel. They even included zip ties and velcro strips to tuck the wires. Finally it was time to test it out. I instantly felt like a real race car driver and was so happy that I could really rip on the wheel with no movement from the mount. Like I said. This thing is solid. At first my knee was hitting the center post but luckily the unit is highly adjustable and it was easy to correct this issue. I was able to find a seating position that allowed me to play without having my knee come close to the bar. Ive been using it everyday and it still fills me with joy. It's gotten a lot of interest from friends and family and I get enjoyment from simply staring at it. My one complaint would be the springs in the lumbar support. After a few days they started squeaking pretty badly. I was so disappointed because of how good the quality of everything else was. Luckily the folding seat has a flap that is easily opened that exposes the springs. After putting some 3 in one oil on the springs the squeaking completely stopped and I was back in action. Overall I am madly in love with my Playseat and am very pleased that it is upgrade-able as I plan to purchase some accessories in the not to distant future!

    After we received the new “Playseat”, all childhood dreams came true; feeling finally a real experience of driving a car, specifically a F1 car. Every day, we are waiting to arrive at home to continue playing and practicing in more difficult levels. Before the Playseat, we try some local crafts (garden tables, chairs, boxes, couches, etc) trying to emulate this experience with no good achievements, but now with this is seat is awesome. Thanks to "Playseat" for this kind of seats, you really change the way racing video games are played.

    Before we get to the details of the seat itself, I’ll share my experience with the pre-sales support staff at playseatstore.com.

    Before purchasing, I had several questions about my selection of the proper seat and accessories for my needs. Since my kids and I differ pretty significantly in size, specifically height, I’d inquired about the available seat slider accessory. I was concerned that the range of adjustment provided by the seat slider, and the Evolution seat itself, might not be sufficient for us. However, the staff assured me that the seat slider would work for us, and did so in a prompt and friendly manner. So that was a positive sign from the start.

    The shipment arrived undamaged and well-packed, including strips of packing tape to secure the contents and prevent them from shifting inside the box. The components of the seat frame are all well-wrapped and neatly packed in the seat itself. Everything was wrapped in either cardboard or foam packing materials. The seat itself was completely enclosed in a layer of bubble wrap.

    This model is the Evolution Alcantara, which is wrapped in Alcantara — a synthetic suede fabric material — and has a very comfortable feel to the touch. A nice touch I noted upon inspection of the seat: the leg and shoulder bolsters for the seat are reinforced with leather patches. These are two areas of the seat likely to see heaviest “wear-and-tear” during use of the seat, as well as when drivers enter and exit the seat. So these patches will hold up longer than the Alcantara material would in these particular spots.

    Overall, the material and finish of the seat are quite impressive. The seat cover is also setup to accommodate folding the seatback down for storage, in that it attaches via hook-and-loop (Velcro) strips in the back which can be easily disconnected to avoid tearing the fabric during folding.

    Assembly of the seat was pretty easy -- my 12-year-old son helped. We adjusted the brake pedal platform to the desired angle for us, out of eight possible positions. We then adjusted the height of the steering wheel platform to best accommodate all members of my family. Note that nearly every part of the seat can be easily adjusted: the distance of the pedal platform from the seat, the distance of the wheel platform from the seat, the height of the wheel platform, and the angle of the pedal platform.

    Now that the seat was successfully attached to the frame, it is time to add the game controller components to their respective locations. The Evolution comes with a pedal platform which contains a multitude of pre-drilled holes, no doubt mapped out for at least a dozen different pedal sets available. Since we have the Thrustmaster T300 GT RS, we searched for the compatible set of mounting holes for this pedal set. Attachment was quick and easy with the provided M6x1.0 mounting bolts.

    The mounting holes for this pedal set did, however, position the pedals directly in line with the frame’s centerline. We were concerned that this would prevent clear access to the brake pedal. However, several test runs around Willow Springs confirmed we were all able to pivot our foot to reach the brake without issues.

    Once the pedals had been secured, we turned our attention to the sliding adjustments, which determine how far the wheel and pedals are from the seat. Since my youngest daughter is barely 5-foot, while I am nearly 6-and-a-half feet tall, we were very interested to see how quickly we could swap out our driving setups between lap sessions. We found, after some experimentation, that the slider knobs were easy to grasp and twist, even for her small hands. If I was careful to not overtighten, she would be able to loosen them, make the adjustments, and retighten.

    Since there are quite a few cords and cables dangling about after all connections were made, I wanted to tidy it up a bit. And it just so happens that the folks at playseatstore.com included a set of black Zipties with the seat. So I went to work, and tidied up all the cabling, securing it into place with the ties. Once done, all the cables were well-secured out of harm’s way, and only two cables — power and USB — ran between the Evolution and the console.

    After a few hours of use in the seat, I must admit it is quite well-made. It fits all members of our family well, including me — the largest of the bunch. Everyone has been pleased with the feel of the seat. And it certainly does look sharp, too. The handsome “Playseat” white embroidered stitching across the headrest is a nice touch, as are the aforementioned leather-reinforced bolsters. The headrest has the embroidered logo on the back, as well.

    As I’ve mentioned before, we have both small and big kids (me!) who will all be sharing use of this racing setup. So being able to quickly adjust the seat setup to accommodate both big and small folks is a key requirement. Without that, it’s a non-starter. After testing with both my kids (of various sizes) and me (a large-framed person) this seat has delivered on this adjustability requirement. We’re all quite happy with how easily changes can be made, as we swap out drivers.

    Overall, the Evolution Alcantara gets high marks for fit and finish. We’ll see how it holds up to steady use by 3-4 people over a few months, but I have high expectations for its durability under these conditions.

    I've also posted this review online via my personal blog here, including many more pictures of our racing seat setup:

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

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

    Easy to install and dosn't take many space.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Overall I thoroughly recommend this purchase ;)

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Overall a very good seat, i recommend it strongly.

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

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

    - could have been sturdier but the trade off is increased weight

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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