Geek Review: Razer Fujin Pro

The Razer Fujin Pro, an ergonomic chair from Razer, marks the company’s foray into premium gaming chair space, currently dominated by the more brightly coloured race car-looking models, while complementing Razer’s diverse product range from PC accessories to apparel. Launched at the end of 2023, the Fujin Pro is Razer’s response to evolving gaming chair standards, moving away from car seats to mirror the office chair aesthetics the likes of Herman Miller’s Vantum. This chair is a significant leap from Razer’s traditional, gaming-centric designs, featuring a more subdued aesthetic that seamlessly integrates into both office and gaming environments.

Its more understated style and refined-looking design echoes high-end mesh office chairs, and might deceive onlookers about its gaming roots, as there’s little of Razer’s green, with the company’s branding subtly stitched into the chair’s mesh front and discreetly placed on the back of the headrest, appealing to users who prefer minimalistic branding in their workspace.

Priced at US$1,049 (S$1,499), it bridges the gap between gaming and productivity as the Fujin Pro aims to elevate the reputation of gaming chairs, which have often been criticised for poor support and prioritising style over substance. Its design competes with high-end ergonomic chairs, fitting effortlessly into office settings as well as gaming setups. 

The Fujin Pro boasts an aluminium alloy frame, coated in gunmetal grey, and supports up to 136 kg (300 lbs). Instead of a foam rear and seat, the chair now offers a breathable, supportive mesh material that enhances the comfort of extended gaming or work sessions, with the mesh contouring your body as you perch yourself on it. Together with its visible lumbar support and a fully articulating headrest, owners will see a more distributed weight balance, improved posture, and reduced heat during prolonged use.

The chair’s high-strength mesh webbing supports and adapts to the user’s body, offering breathability and responsive comfort, though it may not convert those who prefer softer materials. Its durability and appropriate tension balance ensures extended support and after three to five hours perched on it, there was long-lasting support without any strain on the back and posterior.

The Fujin Pro features a highly adaptable headrest, suitable for a range of seating preferences. With my 161 cm height, the rest was able to support my head comfortably while seated. Despite its office chair design, the Fujin Pro doesn’t skimp on gaming chair functionality. Standard features include height adjustment, which can be repositioned with ease. The contoured 3D headrest adds to the chair’s customisation options, and it can even be removed entirely if desired.

Its 4D armrests, a nod to Razer’s gaming heritage, enhances the chair’s appeal to gamers as they can be adjusted in height, width, depth, and tilt, accommodating a variety of arm positions for both gaming and typing, which is not something all gaming chairs offer. The ability to adjust the height and spacing of the armrests provides personalised support, improving comfort for different gaming and typing activities.

The Fujin Pro offers a distinct take on the rock and recline function so instead of the usual lever at the side to change the chair’s configuration, it employs a weight-responsive system that enables a comfortable recline up to 136 degrees. This innovative design ensures that the 2D lumbar support and overall stability of the chair are consistently maintained, providing a relaxing experience during breaks in gaming. The backrest dynamically adjusts to the user’s movements, offering continuous support across various seating positions. Additionally, the recline tension is adjustable, ideal for unwinding but not designed for sleeping.

Offering adjustable intensity and height, the chair’s lumbar support stands out for its ability to provide tailored back support. Furthermore, the seat pan’s adjustability caters to different leg lengths, contributing to optimal comfort. The chair’s adaptability to various user preferences makes it ideal for households with multiple users of different heights, especially ideal for heights between 170cm and 200cm. Although my height of 161 cm is below that range, it was cosy for my thighs, and that contributed to the feeling of having sufficient support while on the chair.

Despite its impressive offerings, the Fujin Pro’s warranty is surprisingly limited, not quite matching the chair’s high-quality materials and build. Five years for the frame and hardware are decent, but just one year for the breathable mesh? Competitors like Herman Miller, Mavix, and X-Chair offer all-parts warranties for a decade, while NeueChair clocks in at a robust 12 years. For this calibre of chair, Razer’s limited warranty raises concerns and while the build quality seems rock-solid, the lack of after-sales assurance that its bigger competitors offer is glaring, and would make potential customers question Razer’s long-term commitment. 

Design-wise as a whole, the subtle branding on the Fujin Pro underscores its design philosophy, with minimal logos that don’t detract from its aesthetics. Like many modern chairs, the unit offers tilt capabilities for you to lean back and sideways, without rolling the wheels. Razer calls it the Synchro-tilt Technology and Tilt-tension Control, but it simply means you can sit on it and leans in any direction without causing the chair to jerk around the room, which we tend to do when we’re deep into a gaming session or grinding through office tasks. The lumbar support and adjustable armrests provide personalized comfort, making the Fujin Pro a standout choice for anyone seeking a top-notch chair for both work and play.

Despite its shortcomings, the chair blends support, comfort, and durability, emerging as a standout option at a premium price tag. Its design and functionality caters to both gamers and office workers, making it a versatile addition to any setup. Despite some minor drawbacks, the Fujin Pro is a noteworthy entry from Razer, challenging conventional gaming chair designs with its focus on ergonomics and user ease.



The Razer Fujin Pro is a commendable effort that stops itself from being more comfortable, with a warranty that may leave some wanting more. The lack of near-horizontal reclining might disappoint die-hard loungers, even if the overall package is a solid one.
