Playseat Challenge Gaming Chair


The Playseat Challenge is a very basic, entry level sim racing chair. It is more expensive than a wheelstand, but is a lot cheaper than a full cockpit.

We think the Playseat Challenge is more of an expensive sun lounger than anything else; objectively, it does offer a single seater-esque driving position, and a mounting point for your wheel and pedals, but they will only work with cheaper, low power wheels. But if you're budget is higher, there are other items that feel more robust and well-built. If you want a gaming chair but don't have much space, the Playseat Challenge is perfect for you. It has a weight limit of 120kg, but for anyone who weighs 90kg or more, we advise buying something else, because you may feel somewhat uncomfortable and unstable in the Playseat Challenge (this is from our experience).
