Pros and cons

According to our gaming chair expert
  • The first Evolution model whose pedal plate angle can be adjusted.
  • 'Alcantara' indicates that the seat has upholstery made of vinyl leather.
  • The seat can be folded, making the chair easier to store.
  • There's no space for a gearbox. You'll need a separately available holder for this.

Description

The standard Evolution is by far PlaySeat's most famous and most popular racing chair. There really wasn't much room for improvement at first sight. Still, PlaySeat managed to upgrade the whole thing. How? The Evolution Alcantara got a more luxurious-looking upholstery made of vinyl leather. The angle of the foot plate became adjustable as well. The latter seems negligible. That is, until you realize that a steeper angle allows for more control over the pedals. This benefits your reaction speed, especially when playing racing games in which you need to use the brakes more than usual.

This only concerns the chair. The pictured racing wheels and accessories are not included.

Comfort everywhere

  • Seat comfort is great
  • Pedals stay in place, don't slide.
  • No cup holder 😂

Sitting comfort is great for both young and old.

perfect chair for more experience of your game!

  • Comfortable
  • adjust
  • Quick damage to the paint

A great chair for the racing game enthusiast. In use with a Thrustmaster T150 on the PS4. The steering wheel and pedals are easy to assemble. Holes in the pedal support match well and fit well. Handlebar can be easily mounted on the handlebar support with the supplied bracket. tyraps are included to make the cables neatly along the frame so that you do not have to get in and out of the chair. The chair is very comfortable and can be adjusted to the desired position. Handy that the chair is collapsible, so it fits easily in the stair cupboard. The chair is quite heavy, but that makes it sturdy. You can quickly and easily damage the paint by tightening and adjusting the parts. I doubted about it because the chair initially seemed quite large, but this is not so bad when folded. So not a moment of regret and have had a lot of fun for the necessary hours, With unchanged: F1 2017 and Project cars. However, it is wise to immediately purchase a mat so that the chair certainly does not damage your floor.

Race it!

  • Sit comfortably
  • When folded, it fits neatly in every stair cupboard
  • No standard floor protection (buy separate mat or caps)

A good solid product (heavy is often also solid). Folds reasonably well, so you can put it in every stair cupboard (should your wife be irritated by the presence in the living room). With a steering wheel on it, folding the seat will be less efficient. Too bad that certain (in my view) basic accessories have to be bought separately, such as a separate shifter bracket or seat bracket (so you can slide your seat forward and back). And there is no standard floor protection protection in any form. I read negative opinions about the 'floor mat' that you can buy, so I put caps under it myself (which you can also stick under chair legs).

Really worth the money

  • Sit comfortably
  • Good quality fabric
  • damage from nuts

I sit in my playseat every day and it suits me just fine. Only the way to fix it (big black nuts) damage the rods and if you make it bigger you can see where they were stuck unfortunately.

Not recommended

  • Rod slips away

The bar slips while racing, checked 3x if it is tight and it was. As a result, you sometimes have to pause your game during a long race to adjust the seat again. The chair is too narrow for a slightly larger person. My hips pinch between the chair and that is not comfortable. Despite the fact that the chair indicates that it can handle 120 kg and I am still well below that, it is not possible in terms of comfort. After half an hour I get back pain in this chair. Shame, bad buy of the year!
