The live streamed RazerCon 2020 event saw CEO Min-Liang Tan reveal his latest line-up of gaming peripherals to the world and the first thing that he revealed is perhaps the most practical of all- the Razer Iskur gaming chair.
The Razer Iskur is a gaming chair engineered for gamers but its features also make it ideal desk jockeys who work long hours too. What’s good for the goose and all. Every aspect of the Iskur has been considered from its arm rests to its cushions and it looks like an impressive offering indeed.
Key to its design is that users will be able to enjoy a neutral spine position for consistent posture, comfort and, naturally seeing as this is Razer issued gear, better performance. By keeping the spine in a neutral position, users also get to minimise the typical strains and aches from being stuck in position for long hours at a time; typical if you’re a heavy gamer.
Razer Iskur Chair Specifications
From afar, the Razer Iskur bears the unmistakable trademark of Razer-issued gear from its black and neon green livery to its over-engineered durability and design. As a gaming chair, the Iskur is able to seat users up to 190cm in height and up to 136kg in weight.
In order to ensure comfort and a neutral spine position, the chair itself has been carefully engineered to ensure that the thighs are flush against the seat, that the knees are ergonomically bent at a proper 90-degree angle and that the feet rest on the floor rather than dangling about.
The chair back is cushioned to ensure the spine is in a comfortable and neutral position while offering the ability to tilt back to a 126-degree angle. Even the seat itself is able to tilt about 11 degrees.
The 4D armrests on the Razer Iskur are able to move forwards and backwards 15-18mm, extend or lower with an extension range of between 60-70mm, move side to side between 10-11mm and rotate between 20-25 degrees which allows users to adjust the fit to their needs.
The Iskur also sports dense cushions with a multi-layered synthetic leather covering that is designed to withstand the typical peeling effect from long hours of daily use. According to Razer, they’ve even subjected these chairs to a salt water corrosion test just to simulate the kind of heavy usage that it can potentially stand up to.
Razer Iskur Price
In terms of pricing, the Razer Iskur is in the middle of the pack as gaming chairs go at USD$499 which is about RM2,065 but its ergonomic design will likely mean that it’s a winner for gamers. The chair is now available for purchase online straight from Razer.
