We know that many of you choose these products only for their design, gaming chairs are very beautiful in an office or even in the bedroom, but beyond this, the important thing is how they take care of you. Today we talk about the Drift DR175, a model with an air of play but that also takes care of your health.

How is this Drift gaming chair
And apart from the colors, what can we expect from it? We have before us a chair built in quality materials that provide resistance and comfort. It is covered with soft polyurethane and inside it prevails the High density FOAM to improve the ergonomics section. Thanks to this we can have a comfortable posture at all times, but there is more. its butterfly mechanism It also favors a slight rocking that gives us a better feeling.
The dimensions of this chair Drift are from 68 x 125-135 x 52 cm and the weight is 18 kg. Supports a maximum weight of 150 kg thanks to Class 4 gas piston . As you can see, it is adjustable in height, between 125 and 135 cm. It may seem small, but these 10 centimeters of margin give a lot of play. In addition, the backrest can also be adjusted. You can recline it at an angle between 90 and 135 degrees. It allows you to lock it in the position that is most comfortable for you, whether to play, work or even rest for a while. It’s up to you.
More advantages of this gaming chair. It includes a cervical and a lumbar cushion so that you always maintain a good posture and above all that you feel as comfortable as possible, and its 2D armrests, also padded with polyurethane are really comfortable.
And to be able to move the chair from one side to the other, it has five star-shaped nylon wheels, with 6 cm in diameter, so you can move easily. The nylon should not scratch the floor, but if your floor needs special care or if you plan to do a lot of shrimp from one side of the table to the other, remember that there are also mats for PC chairs, which have been precisely designed to protect soil.
Is a polyurethane, leather or fabric chair better?
Like everything in life, it depends. It depends on you, your needs, your tastes and your budget. But, broadly speaking, if you have no idea what is best for you, let us guide you a bit so that you value the best material for you.
The polyurethane, which is the predominant material in this chair, is a kind of plastic material. It is inexpensive and makes the chair not very expensive, in addition, it is usually cleaned quite well. Of course, you have to bear in mind that, as a good plastic it is, it can make you quite hot, so if you already live in a hot place or if the temperature in your room is high, keep that in mind.
The materials textiles they are cooler, but also more difficult to clean. If you sweat, in the long run, the marks can remain. Fabric is not an expensive material and is generally good value for money. It is usually quite comfortable.
And for those looking for a more premium finish, the skin is the chosen material. It is more expensive than the previous ones, but also more resistant and durable. It should be able to be cleaned well, yes, it is very hot and if you sweat it will give you that uncomfortable effect of “staying glued” to the chair.
Which is better then? As you can see, we cannot totally tip the balance to one side or the other, since this depends on you. You can tell us in the comments what is your favorite material for your computer chair and see how many people agree with you. You dare?
