Razer announces more affordable version of its Iskur gaming chair
Not all gaming chairs have to be very expensive, which is more or less the case with the Razer Iskur X. Razer’s latest gaming chair addition to its collection of lifestyle products.
Iskur X is the second gaming chair that Razer launched to date. Starting first with Iskur last year. With Iskur, you pay a higher premium for more features. As an innovative lumbar support integrated into the back of the chair. Something that is not very common with gaming chairs.
Many gaming chairs do come with lumbar support, but it’s usually just a pillow that you can tie around the seat. This brings us to the new Iskur X. Which forgoes some of the more premium features of Iskur in exchange for a lower price. Is this a good thing? It is up to you and what you want from a chair.
The Razer Iskur X retails for a lower price of $ 399, but loses important features
Iskur X comes at a lower price, but you lose some of the best features of Iskur. Mainly lumbar support. If you sit for long periods of time without lumbar support, you are doing your back a disservice.
With Iskur X, you lose the built-in lumbar support that Iskur offers. You can buy a lumbar support pillow for an additional $ 50, but at this point you’re only $ 50 off the regular retail price of the top-of-the-line model. The lumbar support of the Iskur is also adjustable, unlike the pillow of the Iskur X. It should be noted, however, that the pillow of the Iskur X conforms to the majority of the back, as does the built-in support of the Iskur X. Iskur.
This is a very big step above most lumbar support pillows for other gaming chairs. Which are generally smaller and less supportive overall.
Razer still uses premium materials for this model
There are still a few differences between Razer’s new chair and the first. Namely 2D armrests as opposed to 4D armrests. That said, Razer still uses plush high density foam to provide long lasting comfort, even for the longest gaming sessions.
The Iskur X also has a multi-function tilt option, and the styling is broadly the same as the regular Iskur. So from a design standpoint, you’re not giving anything up. As it still exhibits the same sleek style that Razer tends to apply to all of its products.
The Razer Iskur X is currently only available on the Razer website. Iskur is, however, available through Razer and through Amazon.
