The company that produces these chairs, Merax, was founded in 1995 in Los Angeles, California. They take pride in providing innovative products that help enhance and simplify the lives of modern consumers through offering a broad range of products under the categories of home, office, travel, pets, fitness and kids.

They currently have offices in China, the United States, Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom. Their expansive platform is utilized to further develop new products and provide customers with products for daily use in all aspects of life.

Examples of products they currently make are gaming chairs, suitcases, treadmills, exercise bikes, cat trees, pet cages, kids furniture, play tents and much more. Like I said, a broad range of products.


Studily built with an aluminum base, which is far better than that plastic crap your office chair very often is made of. Good materials to minimize wear, and it is easy to clean. The looks aren’t that bad either, with the racing stripe on it. Hence, the name.


The Merax Racing Chair can be swiveled 360 degrees, and the back can be tilted to lean backwards, as well as locked in an upright position. You can actually lean all the way from 90 degrees upright to 180 degrees flat to take a nap if you want to. The armrests can be adjusted up and down to suit your needs. A heavy-duty gas lift is also built-in.



Chill out with some YouTube or Netflix while reclined in this gaming chair. Or even take a nap between hard gaming sessions. You can adjust it to your liking with regard to reclining, height and arm rests. It easily replaces your desk chair. Save your back and endure longer sessions sitting in this chair. The designers had some ergonomics in mind when they designed this piece of furniture.


Bottom line

To sum up the chair, here is some pointers for and against it.


  • Simple setup, all tools are included in the box
  • Easy to clean
  • Great quality materials
  • Wear resistant
  • Arm rest can be adjusted
  • Back can be adjusted / reclined
  • Much chair for the money
  • Looks great
  • Sturdy aluminum base
  • Ergonomic design
  • 2 year warranty


  • May not be suitable for very tall people (Does not get enough height)
  • Seat could have used more cushioning
  • Seat not breathing that well, can get warm, depending on the person using it
  • A little difficult to assemble
  • A bit tight on the sides
  • Arm rests can be adjusted up and down, not back and forth

If you are looking for a gaming chair and not spend a fortune on it, and are not afraid to do some assembly, then the Merax Racing Chair is a good option for you. So much better than the desk chair for sure. (Tell me about it, I’ve been using a desk chair for as long as I can remember.) You can find it and similiar chairs on Amazon.
