Ewin Racing chairs: All you need to know

Read on for the answers to those questions plus a whole lot more.

Ewin Racing chair series

Ewin Racing currently produce gaming chairs in five major ranges or ‘series’:

The Knight Series
The Champion Series
The Calling Series
The Hero Series and
The Flash XL Series.

Whichever series you choose to go for, you’ll be getting a great standard package:

  • Adjustable armrests
  • Reclining function (usually to a max of 155° degrees)
  • Rocker function
  • Headrest and lumbar support pillows
  • 5-point wheelbase with casters for a steady base.

Basically, the rest boils down to how far your budget can stretch to include optional extras.

Let’s dig into those categories and answer the obvious question: ‘What’s the difference between all the Ewin Racing gaming chair series?’

Ewin Racing – Knight Series

Key facts

Chairs in series: 5
Models: KT-BW2A; KT-BG2A; KT-BC2A; KT-BR2a; KT-BY2A
Colors: White; Green; Blue; Red; Yellow; Black & Red; Black & White; Black & Blue; Black & Gray; Black & Pink; Black & Yellow.
Pattern options: 5
Price range:
 $229 – $333

Introducing the Ewin Racing ‘Knight Series’.

This range covers the cheapest Ewin Racing chairs usually available for under $230 – up to the range-topping ‘PlayStation’ branded KTE range.

Given that, at the top end, some Ewin Racing chairs can retail at over $500, the Knight Series include some of the more basic (and therefore affordable) chairs for gamers.

With the ‘Knights’ you’re getting a great gaming chair with all the features you’d expect.

Most models can perform well supporting up to 400lbs of gamer, so these are all solid no-nonsense chairs that’d be a great addition to any gamer’s set-up.

So what don’t you get with the Pro Series that you could get if your budget can stretch a little further?

The main differences are in the materials and parts used.

The material covering the Knight chairs is PVC leather (also called vinyl) – not as tough, moisture-resistant or as aesthetically pleasing as the PU or fabric options.

The Knight range seats have 2D armrests, meaning they only move up and down – not in and out and no rotation. For some this won’t be a big deal but if you have unusually long or short arms this could be a comfort deal-breaker.

You’re also getting the basic nylon base structure, rather than the reinforced aluminium of the other models and you get the basic castors (or wheels) on the base too.

They’re good chairs – but this is the equivalent of ‘flying coach’ rather than business or first class. Fine if you’re on a budget but don’t expect all the bells and whistles.

Pros
  • Cheapest chairs in the range
  • Wide-range of colors available
  • Great set of standard features
Cons
  • 2D not 4D armrests
  • 2 years (not 5 year) warranty
  • No footrest

Ewin Racing – Calling Series

Key facts

Chairs in series: 16
Colors: White; Blue; Red; Black; Black & Blue; Black & Red; Black & Brown; Black & Gray; Black & Yellow; Black & Green; Black & Pink; Black & Orange
Patterns: 3
Price range: $269 – $377

Price-wise the Calling series is pretty similar to the Knight range. Ewin’s own buyer guide suggests they max out height-wise at 5’9″ – but that’s not our experience. The dimensions of the chairs are broadly similar to most of the others, which will comfortably take a player who’s around 6’1″ so we’re gonna assume that’s a typo on the official site.

The main difference with the Calling series is the covering material – shifting from PVC leather to PU leather or, to get all scientific, from polyvinylchloride to polyurethane.

The PU leather is tougher. It’ll withstand repeated cleaning, won’t be affected so badly by moisture (we’ve all had those ‘Sweaty Wraith’ games in Apex Legends!) and it will retain the original colors in sunlight-fading for longer too.

The Calling range also has a seat base with raised edges too. Again, some gamers won’t even notice the difference. For others the slightly more ‘cosy’ feel around their rear-end and the resistance for ‘wrigglers’ (those of you who really lean in to every power-slide or drift through a fast corner!) is a great addition, especially when you want to kickback in between bouts (or whilst the latest update downloads etc.).

For us one of the biggest differences is the colors. Whilst the Knight range has a good range of colors the ‘red’ chair is mostly black with red highlights.

With the Calling series, if you want a red chair you get a red chair. Look at this beauty:

That sucker is red. And the same applies to the blue or white in the same range.

With lots of game chair manufacturers who are producing these things in bulk, it’s the Henry Ford line: “Any color, as long as it’s black.” – with slight variations around, literally, the edges. So the Calling series is a great way to get actual color into your set-up, without breaking the bank.

Pros
  • Tough PU covering
  • Snug-fit seat option
  • Solid color options
Cons
  • 2D not 4D armrests
  • 2 years (not 5 year) warranty

Ewin Racing – Champion Series

Key facts

Chairs in series: 7
Colors: Black; Gray; Pink; Black & White; Black & Blue; Black & Green; Black & Pink; Black & Red; Black & Yellow.
Patterns: 8
Price range: $359 – $469

We’re kicking up a gear now. For $100 more than the basic models in the Knight or Calling series you’d be expecting some decent upgrades.

You won’t be disappointed.

As well as the PU covering from the Calling range, the Champion series has a fabric option too:

You get 4D (four dimensional) armrests, which means you can move them in all four dimensions: lifting them up and down, shifting them left to right, moving them forwards and backwards on the chair as well as rotating them – meaning you can get the perfect angle of comfort unique to your gaming style, or even to the specific type of game you’re playing (e.g. dropping them out of the way for a shooter; or supporting your elbows for a racer etc.)

You’re also getting an upgrade in the tilt mechanism too. As well as being more solid and robust it’s also easier to use.

Next: the base. The Champion series steps up to a reinforced aluminium alloy base – stronger and longer-lasting than the nylon alternative.

And the wheels on the base get a buff too. Look at them, the ‘hubless’ wheels on the Champion series just look… well… awesome:

When you compare them to the basic models wheels:

…it’s night and day in terms of appearance – in our opinion at least.

Check out this fun review video for the Champion Series:

Pros
  • PU and Fabric covering options
  • 4D armrests
  • Aluminium alloy base & hubless wheels
Cons
  • Not quite the height range of top models
  • 2 years (not 5 year) warranty

Ewin Racing – Hero Series

Key facts

Chairs in series: 11
Colors: Black, Blue, White
Patterns: 5
Price range: $409 – $499

We’re edging up the price range now, so what does the Hero range bring to the party?

You’re basically ‘pimping’ the Champion Series.

Some models (though not all, so do double check) have a 180° tilt. If you occasionally cop a nap in your gaming chair (be honest… who hasn’t?) those extra 25° can make all the difference.

The chairs in this range have an extra few inches in height too, meaning bigger taller gamers will find them more comfortable – up to 6’5″ in many cases. If you’re a taller gamer, that head and neck support can make a huge difference.

Pros
  • Up to 180° tilt
  • Better for taller gamers
Cons
  • Some models downgrade to 2D armrests

Ewin Racing – Flash XL Series

Key facts

Chairs in series: 14
Colors: Black; Blue; Red; White; Gold; Black & Blue; Black & Red; Black & Pink; Black & Orange.
Patterns: 6
Price range: $469 – $532

At last we arrive at the top of the range.

And it’s a good height to view from as the Flash XL series are ‘extra large’, able to happily accommodate up to 550lbs and 7ft of gamer.

Otherwise you’re getting the ‘best of the rest’ too: PU covering; 4D armrests; snug-fit (or ‘flat pebble’) base options; 155° tilt mechanism; aluminium alloy base; and version 3.0 wheels.

What you’re paying for is the added heft and structure to deal with the big and tall video game players – the biggest and tallest (if you’re over 7ft and 550lbs we’d love to hear from you about what gaming set-up you use!).

Pros
  • Best for heavy gamers
  • Can fit up to 7ft players
Cons
  • Higher price range than standard models

Ewin Racing chairs – Assembly and Disassembly

Most customers agree that Ewin Racing chairs are pretty easy to assemble.

Of course, that can depend on your own confidence with this sort of DIY task but the Ewin Racing team are pretty helpful with a whole host of instructions and guides available to download (free, of course) on their website.

This official installation guide video pretty much sums up how easy assembly is:

Once assembled doing the same in reverse is fairly straightforward too, should you need to disassemble the chair if you’re moving house or relocating your ‘gaming cave’.

Ewin Racing chairs: Colors

Ewin Racing’s range of chairs come in a whole host of color options.

Not all models are available in all colors though, so if color is important to you (to match the aesthetics of your room or brand) you’ll need to choose carefully.

Broadly, speaking the colors available are:

  1. Black
  2. Blue
  3. Green
  4. Grey
  5. Red
  6. Orange
  7. White
  8. Pink
  9. Brown
  10. Gold.

Obviously, within that there are variations too. Some of the ‘blue’ chairs are mostly black, with some elements highlighted in blue.

On different models those feature areas may be smaller or larger so the chair has bigger areas of colors other than black.

With some options, like the pink color-way in the Champion Series, when they say pink, they really mean it:

And yes… it has a tail. Seriously: check it out.

Some of the color variants tend to switch in and out of stock or availability – basically because they’re less popular, so get made in smaller batches.

If you’re really price sensitive or budget conscious the ‘default’ black and red options are often the cheapest too.

Ewin Racing logo

Ewin Racing have been through a few logo iterations in their time. This is the current one, as featured on their social media accounts:
