So. The seat of my chair deformed. No big deal, right? 10 year warranty on the frame. December 2: contact Drop. December 3: Drop says that @AKRacingSupport services this model. Contact the email address given. December 5: AKRacing says request received. December 9: AKRacing says Drop has the seat, and only Drop has the seat, and they can't do anything. I reply to both support services. I'm not doing this runaround thing. One of you is going to fix or replace this chair. December 16: No answer from either support desk. Send followup. December 30: No answer from either support desk. Send followup. January 10: No answer from either support desk. Post here. Still waiting, guys. I do not want to continue escalating this, but I will. I just want my chair fixed or replaced. My back hurts.

I purchased this chair back in Nov 2018, and the arm rest on the right arm is now detached from the frame that makes the adjustments for the arm rest. Think of it as a "T", and the top of the T has fallen off. Chair is still is great condition. Just the arm rest has become detached from normal use. I emailed the support address, service@akracing.com, and they told me to contact "Drop" as this is an exclusive. Thought I get your opinion first, since you guys are the actual vendors. @AKRacingSupport

Quick question to anyone who owns this chair. What is the lowest height off the floor the top of the armrests go.? I need this to see if it fits under a desk opening. We have to have it scooched in. Also, what is the top of the seat cushion height off the floor. It gives a measurement, but it's unclear if its to the bottom of the cushion or the top. I'm assuming it's the top because 17.3 Plus the thickness of a cushion that is likely 4" would put this chair very high on it's lowest setting. So I'm assuming the 17.3' shown in the pictures here are to the top of the cushion. It makes sense but I'm reading some of the reviews and some are saying they are 5'8" and can't put their feet on the floor on the lowest setting? This sounds a bit crazy to me. If the seat goes down to 17.3" off the floor to the top of the cushion, this shouldn't be an issue. I'm 5'8" and don't have unusually long legs. The chair I'm sitting in right now is exactly 17.5" from the cushion to the floor and my feet are flat on the ground with a little to spare. I actually just raised my chair height to 19.5"(top of the cushion to floor) and can still be flat footed on the ground. BTW, Massdrop should post pictures like this.

Hi Brain, Thanks for your interest in the Massdrop X AKRacing Aero Gaming Chair. The lowest height measurement the armrest can go (assuming both the chair and the armrest are fully collapsed) is about 25 inches. As for the seat height measurements, 17.3 inches is the measurement from the floor to the bottom of the chair. With the cushion itself being about 4.3 inches, you'd be looking at about 21.6 inches. If you'd like to check out the chair's dimensions more in depth feel free to check out the measurement section of our Premium Gaming Chair. The Aero Gaming chair is based on this chair so the dimensions should be similar. https://www.akracing.com/product/premium-gaming-chair/ Cheers

I'd love one of these but no shipping to UK, understandably. Great "Prime" price though.

No idea about the issue. But I think it's usually $400 and the discount brought it to $300. My memory could be wrong. Try asking a discussion post were someone posted pictures, since they purchased it in the past.

Just got the chair less than a month ago and I like it a lot but the tilt-lock (or rock and lock) is slipping/breaking and throwing me forward when tilting back and locking it. It was working fine but in the last few days started doing this. I noticed there's wiggle room in the locking mechanism when locked now as well.... I'm a little dismayed that this is happening in less than a month of ownership. I put a support ticket in but I also wanted to see if anyone here had the issue as well or am I looking at a simple defect? Edit/Update: I received a replacement base and installed it. I then proceeded to take apart the old one to see how it was built to determine if the new one will malfunction in the same way or not... There is a small (roughly half an inch wide) "laddered/stepped" catch system positioned in the heart of the rock and lock mechanism that grabs a small heavily powder coated/painted metal ledge that is connected to the reclining system. Well looks like the powder coat wore off and the tilt lock grab just slips at will now. So does this mean the new one will too? I haven't used it too much because I don't want to go through this all over again, the disappointment is too fresh. But I really liked reclining and locking it in position... So time will tell. Still love the rest of the chair though and customer support was awesome and was quick to respond and take care of my issue. Just "taking a picture of the problem" (as they asked of me) was difficult so I sent them a video of it slipping while I was on it.

In the pic above: This is the laddered/stepped lock of the rock and lock mechanism. In the pic below: It looks like the tilt lock isn't grabbing the ledge fully. There was no adjustments I could make to force it to fully grab the lip. So it's not grabbing with the full force it could be. Each successive "slot" was narrower as well leading it to slip more often in the more reclined positions.

Thank you so much for this post, the tilt lock failure has been driving me crazy. Randomly thrown forward, it was shocking. I was just about to tear it apart like you did above thinking something was misaligned in the mechanism. So glad I didn't. I just opened a ticket with @AKRacingSupport Thanks again for the detailed post

I'm glad my post was useful. Don't get me wrong though I love the chair, I just don't love the locking mechanism. Maybe it's a mechanical design issue maybe it was all that grease spread all over it. But whatever it is I don't appreciate the feature as I once did. I've now gone back to locking it in the reclined position while watching movies etc. and unfortunately noticed that the 'give' or wiggle I mentioned in the OP is coming back. Only time will tell if it starts slipping and throwing me forward again. But having problems a little less than a year later is better than a month after ownership... By far! Also I just did a round of maintenance and there were quite a few bolts that needed tightening, so if you notice wobble/wiggle in your seatback the likely culprit is some loose bolts under the reclining-handle-side hinge area (you'll need to remove the screw and take the plastic handle off before trying to remove the plastic cover). After tightening them however, it's more solid than when it was new!

Howdy! You can find our generic assembly guide here. https://www.akracing.com/support/assembly-guides/ However, that will probably not resolve what you are looking for. This will probably be more helpful.
  1. If you want to move the armrest forward and backward when in the seating position there are no buttons to push. You simple apply enough pressure and they will move forward and backward.
  2. If you want to move the armrest in and out, making them in a wider or slimmer stance there is a small button on the inner underside of the armrest. Press that button in and then you will be able to move them in and out.
  3. If you are looking for height adjustments that is the larger trigger style button on the outsides of the armrest. Pull the trigger up and then adjust for desired height.
  4. Lastly angle adjustments work just like forward and backward adjustments. Twist the armrest with enough pressure and position them to the desired angles.
  5. Another adjustment you can make on the armrest is from the bottom of the chairs. If you want the entire armrest closer or further away from your body there is about 2" of adjustment by loosening the 4 bolts holding the armrest on the under side of the chair. Once you have it in the desired location make sure to tighten all the bolts back up.
Cheers.
