We have an update on the Massdrop x AKRacing Aero Gaming Chair. The tilt-locking chairs are making their way through production and we’re on track to ship at the end of February. We’ll update everyone in mid February with the status of the shipment.
Reminder that all drop participants have three options:
1) Wait to receive the tilt-locking chairs, which will be available to ship at the end of February.
2) Receive the non-tilt locking chair, which we can ship to you by the end of next week.
3) Cancel your order and receive a full refund. We will also issue a $25 credit to your Massdrop account, which can be used on future orders.
Thank you to everyone who has already written in with their preference. If you haven’t reached out to community support yet, please let us know which option you prefer so that we can best assist you.

Is the ship date of those who chose 1) still "end of february '18"?
Wait... so if I bought this on the first drop and chose to get the tilt lock, I would have to wait till the end of February but then if you join the drop now then you will get the same chair and it will ship in 2-3 days??
Probably should finish shipping for the people who bought it in the first drop...
Or choosing option 3 and canceling the order and getting a refund + $25 credit and repurchasing sounds like the best plan
Yes, the estimated ship date for the tilt-locking chairs is still end of February.
Ok, thanks for the update, I'm still patiently awaiting mine
The chair that is available now is the non tilt locking chair. The tilt locking chair is still on track to ship out at the end of February. Apologies for the confusion!
Awesome, just snagged one of the non-tilt-locking chairs, thanks!
Will the tilt lock version be available again? Really wanted to get in on that one.
I have just joined the drop and emailed support for my preference for option 1, with the tilt lock feature. Do I need to do anything else? Will I be sent a confirmation email that my preference was seen and taken into account? I would like to know ahead of time that I am getting the chair that I asked for; instead of finding out when the package arrives at my doorstep some time in March.
I hope I didn't misunderstand your post. Perhaps I should have just waited for the tilt lock Aero chair to drop at a later date?
This drop is only for the Non Tilt option. The update listed above is for members who joined the drop in 2017. If you do not want the non tilt option, then you should cancel your order. I apologize for the confusion on this!
Will you guys be offering the tilt lock version at a later point? If not I'll order this one, but would prefer the tilt lock version.
Do you have a time frame for when the tilt lock version will be available for ordering? Thank you for the quick response. I will cancel my order now.
@cwis3man The tilt locking version will most likely be available in March.
This is a really odd question, but having received my non-tilt-locking chair, is there any way I can purchase just the part that will make it into a tilt-lock chair? I've discovered it's critical to my posture and I made a mistake getting the one without. :( :( Alternately, I may have to purchase a tilt-lock version of the chair and use my seat on it and sell the new chair.
Pretty sure they are not getting the tilt-lock version. They must be getting the leftover non-tilt-lock chairs that are already manufactured for the previous droppers who chose the tilt-lock.
I spoke to the AKRacingamerica rep on reddit, they said the angle tilt lock used a different mechanism that the standard tilt lock so adding the feature wouldn't be possible :( I was curious about it too
Oh, I understood that part - I was considering just getting a NEW CHAIR basically. like, the entire assembly that screws to the bottom.
Q: is there any way I can purchase just the part that will make it into a tilt-lock chair
You had asked avery that exact question lol, was just responding to it.
