I was reading through the comments myself and noticed our service team has been suggesting if you are over 6' to look into the PRO or MAX models. That all depend how heavy you are.
I am 6'5" and 210lbs. I have used this chair for 2 years and hands down its the best chair I have ever sat in. For those of you who know me, I sat in this chair during my almost 4 years at Massdrop and have posted and bragged about it long before I joined AKRacing. This chair is legit and does not disappoint! I gave up my DXRacer Iron series chair after sitting in an AKRacing PRO chair for a day. Then I got a chance to use the ONYX Deluxe chair. Its my absolute favorite gaming/office chair. It is the top of the line AKRacing chair for a reason.
If you have any questions about it, please let me know.

so at what weight would you recommend choosing the PRO or MAX models over the ONYX/ONYX Deluxe model?
I am 6'2" about 320 lbs.
would I be better off looking into the PRO or MAX model, or would the ONYX be a good option for me?
All three options are good for your height. However at 320lbs I would recommend the MAX Series as it will have more room in the seat and a wider back. The MAX also supports up to 400lbs. You can request it here https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akracing-max-gaming-chairs-2018-models so the next time it drops Massdrop will send you an email. You wont find a better price than here on Massdrop and you should see it again over the next 2-3 weeks.
Also, to answer your question it hard to put a specific weight on any chair. Its height to weight ratio, leg to trunk ratio, BMI, ect.

Im 1,77m and weigh 90kg. would this chair be comfortable for me?
Absolutely. This chair would be perfect for you. You will love it.
Hey Butch, when is this chair going to drop again? And have the 4-D arms been improved so they do not rotate as easily? If this chair is not dropping soon is there another way I can purchase this item for the same price? Thanks! Really want this chair...
Howdy, and its B.Hutch or Hutch.... not Butch.
This drop or this one...
Will happen this month. Just hit the request button on the drops and you will be notified when it goes live.
About the armrest. I have used the Onyx, Pro, and Premium series chairs. I have never had an issue with the armrest. I have even tried to duplicate what people are talking about here on massdrop. The only way they move on me is if I bang them pretty good when getting up or sitting down. Or if I put alot of body weight and then move my arm (with the body weight) in or out. In normal everyday use they stay in place. Considering the amount of chairs we sell vs the complaints about the armrest it's less than 0.5%.
Hey Hutch, I went ahead and ordered the onyx deluxe. Love the chair, but unfortunately the armrests do move a little too easy for my liking... Is there any possible way to buy or upgrade them?
Sorry, there are no other armrest available. I have never had an issue with them myself. However if you use them to support your weight when you get up or bump them going in and out of the chair it can cause them to move out of your desired position.
It's kinda like the old joke.... man goes to the Dr and says doc, my arm hurts when I do this.... Dr says, well then dont do that.
