DX Racer King Series (OH/KS57/NG) vs Wide Series (GC-W06-N-Z3): Which chair is better? Here is my review!

Over a year ago I upgraded my computer chair by buying a DX Racer King Series. The black KS57 to be exact. And oh boy, after sitting in this chair for about 5 minutes the difference was very noticeable. My posture was well aligned and the cushion behind my neck felt great when I want to lean back and just relax for a few minutes. This chair was crafted by people who know what they are doing! It is a very high quality chair that cost around 469 USD.

Now I own a second computer on a separate desk and I was going to buy another black and grey King Series but DX racer came out with a new series called the Wide Series which is very similar to the King Series since it is made for heavy and tall individuals. So while visiting my local computer store I sat in a Wide Series chair for a few minutes and it felt great. So I bought it and it cost around 120$ less than my King Series.

So after a few hours of sitting in both chairs I noticed some very interesting things which perhaps explains why one chair is cheaper than the other. So here are the pros and cons of both models:

 

1) The seat cushion in the Wide Series chair is noticeably more comfortable. It is less firm than the King Series.

2) The head pillow in the King Series is more comfortable because it stays in place all the time since it is well attached to the middle holes at the top of the chair. The Wide Series has no middle holes so the head pillow has to be strap around its top.

3) The King Series chair can lean backwards and can maintain that position by adjusting the left lever at the bottom of the chair. The Wide Series can also lean backwards but it does not have a left lever to maintain a steady lean back angle position. Its right lever only allow you to change its height and use it like a rocking chair but not locking it at an angle.

4) The Wide Series is more suitable for shorter individuals since it can be lowered more than the King Series.

5) The armrests of the Wide Series are more comfortable since the material is a bit cushionier.

6) The way your back will feel in both chair is different. The back of the Wide Series chair is narrower compared to the King Series chair which is wider. So if your frame is skinny you will feel comfortable in the Wide Series chair but if your frame is obese like 300 pounds you definitively should pick the King Series.

7) The seating area of the King Series measures at 19 inches long by 16 inches wide. The seating area of the Wide Series measures 21 inches long by 13 inches wide. Nevertheless the sides of the seat which stops you from sliding are less elevated in the Wide Series so your seating will fell less cluster phobic as far that the 13 inches sound. I’m 5’7 and currently weight 260 pounds and I can say that the King Series seat fit me better. So if you are shorter, taller, skinnier or fatter these are things that needs to be taken in consideration before buying a DX racer chair. They are many other models than King and Wide Series so I recommend that you visit DX Racer’s official website to get the proper measurements and to see which style and color better fit your taste.

So which chair is the clear winner?

After seating in both chairs for countless hours I have to declare that the King Series OH/KS57/NG chair is the winner because I can tilt the chair backwards and maintain that position, the head pillow stays firmly in place and the seat as well as the back are more spacious. But I like the soft seat cushion of the Wide Series more but you may end up enjoying the firmer cushion of the King Series. I wish I could create a highbred from both chairs nonetheless the King Series chair will definitively bring some well needed relief to your back.
