TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair Mandalorian Edition – Review

Navigating a seemingly endless galaxy of gaming chair options can be as daunting as a voyage through the Outer Rim in the Star Wars universe. Gamers often weigh various factors from cost to comfort, searching for a throne that not only supports marathon gaming sessions but also resonates with their personal style. Amidst this competitive market, a product that balances price with high-end features is a rare gem.

TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair Mandalorian Edition

Enter the TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition. This 68cm x 68cm x 132cm chair not only stands out for its striking thematic design inspired by the iconic Star Wars series but also for its accessibility in terms of price. At S$379, it might not be the cheapest seat in the galaxy, but it certainly offers a more approachable price point compared to its high-tier counterparts like SecretLab (with their TITAN Evo line starting from S$644), and Razer (the Razer Iskur starts at S$524.90). 

The TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition is clearly designed to capture the essence of the fearless bounty hunter, the Mandalorian Din Djarin of the Disney+ series. As a Star Wars enthusiast, its Mandalorian-inspired design is certainly alluring, with the backrest subtly mirroring the iconic helmet and the chair upholstered in polyurethane (PU) leather.

Beyond its striking Mandalorian aesthetic, the  TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition prioritises user comfort with a 155-degree recline and versatile ‘4D adjustable’ armrests. These armrests offer a wide range of movement – up, down, left, right, and even angled clockwise or anti-clockwise – allowing for precise customisation to suit your individual preferences.

The inclusion of strategically placed lumbar and head pillows further enhances ergonomic support during long gaming sessions. While it may take a few adjustments to find the perfect balance between the chair’s contours and the lumbar support, the result is undeniable comfort. The memory foam pillows cradle your lower back and neck, while the flexible armrests ensure your arms remain supported throughout your gaming adventures. And of course, the Mandalorian-themed design adds a touch of intergalactic cool to any setup.

However, not all that glitters is Beskar steel. The TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition, while competitively priced, reveals some compromises in stability that might give prospective buyers pause. During testing, concerns arose particularly when the chair was fully reclined, creating a sense of instability that could unsettle users. Compared to higher-end models like the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022, which offers up to a 165-degree recline and robust build quality, the TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition feels less secure, with a potential for tipping if one leans back too abruptly.

While the TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition initially delivered on comfort, prolonged use revealed potential ergonomic limitations. Despite accommodating users up to 200kg, even my 53kg frame found the bucket seat snug after extended periods, requiring adjustments to the lumbar support for optimal comfort. While the memory foam lumbar pillow offers commendable support, users with larger builds may find the 50cm seat width less accommodating in the long run.

To put this in perspective, the Secretlab Titan Evo 2022‘s XL size boasts a 59cm seat width, while the AndaSeat Kaiser 3 offers a generous 55cm base. This disparity underscores the importance of factoring in individual body proportions before investing in a gaming chair as a comfortable fit plays a crucial role in overall enjoyment and long-term ergonomic health during those marathon gaming sessions.

Material choice further influences the TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition’s functionality, especially in warmer climates. The chair’s synthetic leather (PU) construction, while aesthetically pleasing, may not be the best choice for tropical settings like Singapore without air conditioning. This material can become uncomfortably warm and is likely prone to peeling after one to two years of use in humid conditions. Unlike mesh chairs like the Razer Fujin Pro which offer superior ventilation, the faux leather of gaming chairs retains heat, a characteristic inherent to synthetic materials. Real leather would offer more breathability but at a higher cost, affecting the chair’s affordability.

Another minor quirk lies in the chair’s Class 4 hydraulics. While adjusting the height upwards is straightforward, lowering the chair can be less intuitive, often requiring additional force. This is not a dealbreaker but is an aspect worth noting for potential buyers seeking a seamless experience in every aspect of their gaming setup.

That being said, the TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition doesn’t aim to be the most luxurious or feature-packed gaming chair on the market. It’s a chair designed with a specific audience in mind: Star Wars fans who want a comfortable, supportive, and stylish seat that pays homage to their beloved franchise without emptying their wallets. While it may lack the premium materials and flawless ergonomics of its high-end competitors, it offers a unique blend of affordability, decent comfort, and undeniable Star Wars charm.

So, if you’re a casual gamer, a Star Wars enthusiast, or simply someone looking for a comfortable chair with a touch of personality, the TTRacing Surge X Gaming Chair – Mandalorian Edition could be a worthy contender for your setup. Just be sure to weigh its compromises in stability, seat width, and material choice against your individual needs and preferences. 

After all, the best gaming chair is the one that feels like home – or in this case, like a cockpit in a galaxy far, far away.
