Vertagear has introduced a new range of gaming chairs, the Racing Series P-Line PL6000.
The company is best known for its Racing Series S-Line chairs, and while the P-Line shares many of the same features as the S-Line, the PL6000 has a wider and more durable construction designed to accommodate those with a heavier and larger stature.
The new, heavy duty, five-pole base frame is hewn from aluminium and can support a whopping 200kg (440lbs); the S-Line by comparison tops out at 150kg. It sits on polyurethane wheels with a diameter of 75mm, said to provide easy rolling across multiple surface types.
The main part of the chair has a steel frame but of course it's not metal you'll be seated on, as the PL6000 uses high density foam wrapped in PVC leather which is resistant to stains and water and also perforated to help prevent heat from building up in longer sessions. The seat itself is 533mm across, which is also the width of the shoulder rests, while the lumbar support section of the full height backrest measures 476mm wide – significantly wider than the 300mm or so offered by the S-Line.
The PL6000 features a number of adjustments too. The backrest angle can be adjusted between 80 and 150 degrees. There's also tilt adjustment, allowing you to tilt the entire chair backwards for comfort and lock it in place with the new, side-accessible mechanism that's easier to reach than those typically found under the seat. Height can be adjusted through 4in (approximately 100mm) and the chair has a maximum total height of 1.37m. Lastly, even the armrests can be adjusted through four different directions. Like previous Vertagear chairs, the Racing Series P-Line PL6000 ones come with additional cushions for neck and lumbar support.
The PL6000 is available in five different styles: all black, or black with highlights in either red, green, blue or white. It doesn't come cheap, however – this chair will set you back £319.99. It's available now for pre-order from Overclockers UK
and comes with a two year warranty.
