Vertagear Racing Series S-Line SL4000 Gaming Chair Review

Vertagear shipped the SL4000 in a huge box, which arrived nice and safe - sans some travel marks. I think the chair was used before I received it, as there were a couple of things missing (this is a review sample - it happens).




It wasn't packaged how I would like, but again this is down to it being a review sample. The chair itself wasn't damaged, which is the most important thing.




Detailed Look




The sample we received was a slick green-and-black theme, but Vertagear ships the SL4000 chairs in varying colors. You can start with a main color of red, blue, black and green and then add red, blue, green, white or black accents. Full customization is something you want when spending this type of money on a chair.


Starting with the seat adjustments, we have an adjustable tilt with an impressive locking system. Vertagear's adjustable tilt tension mechanism allows you to adjust the tension by turning the knob to match your body weight. It might not sound like much, but this enables you to roll around without pushing with too much force.




The SL4000 seat and height adjustment is great, with a great range of adjustability that lets you find the perfect spot to sit at your desk. It all goes a very long way, as you won't get sore sitting in the SL4000 for those whole-night-long gaming sessions.





One of the best parts of the Vertagear SL4000 is that you fall into it - that is, the seat isn't flat. You fall into it so that you're not 'falling out' of it - or ready to get out of the chair easily, anyway. It's a little touch, but it's something that made me fall in love with it.




Vertagear has also used soft-glide wheels, which were created for quieter operation (I didn't hear the SL4000 make a noise during my months with it) and greater resistance to foreign objects and debris. The 5-star base is super-solid, making you feel nice and safe - in other words, the chair won't break with your weight on it.
