Nokaxus Gaming Chair: Review and Analysis
We’re mainly looking at the Classic series here, but you should definitely browse the full range depending on your preferred style of gaming.
Available in several different color options, the Nokaxus Gaming Chair is versatile enough for you to pick your favorite color that will fit into your gaming set up.
Popular colors to choose from are black, for a sleek and simple look; red and black, for a classic striking gaming look; white and black, for a high contrast look; and finally, pink, for a softer more interesting look.
They also have couple blue color combos to choose from.
All of the colors are rich and vibrant on high-quality PU leather.
The shape of the chair is reminiscent of a car bucket seat, with edges on the back panel that support your back while you are playing video games.
Since the Nokaxus Gaming Chair is designed mainly for a PC gaming audience, the overall aesthetic of the chair is similar to an office chair.
But the combination of color options, silhouette and gaming specific features make this a level above the standard office chair.
The Nokaxus Gaming Chair is designed with hardcore gaming in mind. Therefore, it is loaded with ergonomic design features that are both sleek and practical. The most obvious being the overall shape of the chair.
The bucket seat-like appearance means the chair’s design is conscious of the human back shape. As well as this, the lumbar support pillow is positioned perfectly to give you added support where you need it most, and even vibrates for an added massaging function.
The headrest has a cushion attached that adds even more comfort for when you want a break from gaming, or even just from sitting upright.
The armrests are padded in the same way as the seat and the back, meaning your elbows are not left out when it comes to comfort.
A unique feature of the Nokaxus Gaming Chair is the retractable foot stool. For when you want to kick back and relax after a long session of gaming to watch a film.
In terms of adjustability, the Nokaxus Gaming Chair does very well. The basics are covered, with a gas lift function enabling you to change the height of the chair, and a tilting feature for the back of the chair.
The very unique feature of this chair, however, is that the back can recline from 90 degrees to a full 180 degrees. This is approximately 40-50 degrees greater than other competitor chairs, such as the Vertagear SL series. You can lock the tilting feature in place and use the simpler rocking feature for everyday use.
The chair itself can spin 360 degrees on its wheelbase for even more ease of movement, should your gaming desk set up be bigger than usual.
The armrests, as well as being padded, are fully height adjustable so you can make the chair more customizable to your needs.
The footrest is also adjustable, you can hide it fully away when it isn’t needed, and also adjust the depth to accommodate for the length of your legs.
The chair also boasts something called a “knee tilt” that allows you to rock the chair back and forth without fear of it tipping over when you are busy gaming.
Assembly is quick and easy with this one. There are a few videos on Youtube, including this one that shows how to put this chair together.
