Now the big question is what do you get for you £230 compared to other brands equal or higher priced offerings. The Nitro Concepts S300 features include • 2yr warranty • High-quality fabric cover with intense colour scheme • Comfortable & breathable cold foam upholstery • Quiet 50 mm castors for a variety of floor types • Adjustable 3D armrests • Customisable backrest and rocking mechanism • 135Kg maximum user weight Overview of the parts Included in the box you have the castors, gas strut, tilt and height mechanism, bolts/screws and multi tool device and some plastic covers which are used to cover where the base joins to the backrest. The wheelbase is large and made from a thick plastic with lots of reinforcing moulding, I usually have bad experiences with plastic ones of these as over time I usually find they crack somewhere around the castor mounting holes but time will tell with this one. Cushions for the lumbar and head, these both have straps to secure them to the chair. The base which has the armrests alreay mounted and ready to go out of the box. The back rest. Assembling the S300 chair First thing to do is to attach the castors to the wheelbase and push fit the gas strut in to it, then place the palstic strut cover over that. Next fit the tilt and height mechanism to the base using four of the supplied bolts. Like most of these there is an arrow indicating which way to face the front. Place the base onto the gas strut in the designated hole. Attach the backrest to the base with the other four bolts. Then using the two screws also provided cover the metal mounting plates with the two plastic covers. Attach the cushions to the chair and its all complete. In the picture above I have quickly wrapped the straps around the backrest for quick testing with and without them, but for proper fitment you are meant to thread the straps through the plastic cutout in the headrest shown below Then down underneath and up the back of the backrest. Being 6ft 4" I do prefer to have my head cushion higher up than if it was threaded through this plastic cutout like you are suppose to have it. The completed chair So here we have it in all its glory. It is a very nice looking chair and is very comfy to use. The castors roll around very easily on the carpet in my room and the included cushions are also excellt and help provide some welcome lumber support. The fact the cushions remain in place when you get up and leave the chair is also an added bonus which my current gaming chair does not provide. The sticthing and quality of the materials look and feel excellent, but I do wonder how well the white version of this chair will stay white or weather it will start to look or get a bit grubby quicker than a darker coloured version would. The armrests have height adjustment. Angle in. Or angle out And slide forwards and backwards. You also have a bit of adjustment for how close they are to the base with aprroximately 2 cm of movment in or out on each one. Summing up Nitro Concepts have created a wonderful looking and well featured gaming chair in a market with a large number of offerings at various price points, sure this is not the cheapest one you can buy but it is certainly not the most expensive either. This S300 has a large range of adjustment and also somethings like the "stay in place" cushions that are not even found on higher priced chairs. The seat itself is deep and provides excellent thigh support with the backrest also being very comfy with good back support should you want to sit straight backed or maybe even slump a little. A 2 year warranty is par for the course these days, so should you experience any issues or have a breakage then atleast you know you will get help once you provide proof of purchase. Time will tell if the plastic base withstands my weight and daily abuse compared to metal ones found on higher priced chairs, also the white fabric may start to dull and look dirty over time but there are many other colour options to pick from should you worry about that, I certainly don't hence why I have the white version. Overall another excellent gaming chair from Nitro Concepts and one that I hope will last through many years of use.
