Razer Iskur V2 Review: Best Gaming Chair

Maybe I do a deep distaste for gaming chairs. I bought one in 2016, tired of the race car seat’s design and frustrated by its poor heat management. Then back pain hit when I started working remotely (right before the pandemic). One of my first pandemic purchases was suitable office chair because I’ve been sitting at my desk for over 8 hours. Strangely enough, the back pain gradually disappeared after a few weeks.

This got me interested in testing office chairs—Since then, I’ve tested more than 50 models, from active seating for Herman Millers. Office chairs are better than gaming chairs in almost every way – they often have more adjustments you can make to personalize the chair to suit your body; they often do a better job of keeping you cool with breathable materials; and they often have better back support. But that doesn’t make gaming chairs any less popular. They are the place of choice for many creators and streamers, and what many gamers seem to crave to perfect their gaming battle station. So here we are with Razer Iskur V2.

I began this review process knowing that the Iskur wouldn’t solve some of the initial problems I had with the gaming chair I’d been sitting in for years, but I tried to keep an open mind. open. The verdict after a month of sitting on it? Alright! I wouldn’t choose the Iskur V2 because Mine WFH reigns supreme, but if you don’t want an office chair it’s probably the best gaming chair around.

Assembly is quick and easy, like many office chairs I’ve tested, and the tools you need are included in the box. I initially thought the installation instructions were missing, but it turns out they’re on the back of a giant sheet of paper, which is the first thing you’ll see when you open the box. You can also scan the QR code to view assembly video on YouTube.

The build materials are nice—I tested the PVC-free faux leather model (black and green versions), which felt well-built with durable stitching. There is also a fabric model that only comes in gray. My initial impression after moving the Iskur V2 from the living room to the upstairs office was that it was heavy and bulky, plus the wheels don’t roll well on hardwood floors. Seriously, I currently have seven office chairs in my room (send help) and the Iskur is the tallest and widest, taking up the most space.

It’s black with some neon green accents and looks pretty sleek—most gaming chairs tend to have flashy designs. I still don’t care for the race car seat design – I actually prefer the look of office chairs like this one. Branch, Steel case gestureAnd Shown by Herman Miller with this big, huge Iskur, but that could also be my back holding a grudge.

The Iskur V2 has a wider backrest than its predecessor. I’m 6’4″, and it fits my broad shoulders perfectly; the corners aren’t recessed like on some chairs. The chair is also wide enough for my frame; however, you can’t adjust it. adjust the seat depth (you may not be able to pull the seat out at all). This means I don’t have room for alternative sitting positions—I can’t sit with one leg tucked under the other, which I don’t. can do. Maybe do on Embody and Haworth fern I’m currently testing.
