Most office chairs suck too. The one given to me by my firm is so bad, I ended up buying a Leap V2 with my own money and using that instead. If I'm going to be in office for 50 to 60 hours a week, I'm not suffering any more than I have to. That cheapo chair they got me and all the other staff was a medieval torture device. It didn't fit my height/body shape at all. Seat pan depth was too big, back pan height too high and flat. Non-adjustable, non-removable arm rests that crash into my desk and prevented me from getting good typing posture. They either hit the desk surface so I had to stretch to type or I had to lower seat height to the point where I was typing at almost shoulder height. Ridiculous. That being said, racing seats look the way they do for very good reasons. They wrap around your body to hold you in place when you are taking corners at high speed, otherwise the centripetal forces will throw you out of it. They have high backs with forward tilted head rests to stop your head snapping back past your shoulders when you brake suddenly, reducing the risk of serious whiplash injury. None of these design considerations matter when you sit at a desk. One thing I'll say about racing style gaming chairs is at least they would make suitable racing seats if you ever game while taking corners at 120 kph. It'll never happen because lol but at least its designed for something, even if its copied from something else. Bad office chairs remarkably fail at everything. I've sat in office chairs that were so bad they gave me legitimate occupational health reasons to leave the office and not do any work!
