There’s tanks in Battlefield 3, there’s tanks in movies (Frank the Tank!), and now there’s also tanks as gaming chairs (well, kinda): the DXRacer Tank Series is a true tank among gaming chairs, being one of the biggest seats on the market right now! The T-Series is heavy, the T-Series is big, and the T-Series is sturdy. But – are you big enough to fit in it? Only very few gamers have the actual body size to match the Tank Series. Let’s find out!
Is the DXRacer Tank Series right for you?
The name already says it: your body should roughly resemble a tank if the Tank Series is right for you. All DXRacer series are designed to fit to a certain body size and weight, so it’s super important to know that first and buy the best gaming chair for you accordingly. If you’re just buying any DXRacer because the name sounds cool, you might end up with something that will not be comfortable at all for you. If you’re looking into the DXRacer Tank Series, here’s the body size and weight you’d need for it:
DXRacer Tank Series: Body Size
If you’re playing in the NBA as a Center or just tall: the Tank Series will be perfect for you! The Tank Series ideally supports taller gamers that are between 5’9“ (for our metric friends: 1.80m) and 6’7“ (2.00m). If you’re below that, the headrest might be way too high for you to feel comfortable (hint: look at the Formula Series then).
DXRacer Tank Series: Weight Limit
This is where things get fun: the DXRacer Tank Series is the gaming chair with the highest weight limit on the market! It supports up to 450(!) lbs, or 205 kg, which is insane compared to all other models right now. If you’re heavier than 300 lbs, this is definitely the best gaming chair for you. If you’re more lightweight though, you should buy a different chair accordingly – else you will just drown in the sheer size of the Tank Series.
DXRacer Chairs: Basic Features
Even though the Tank Series is bigger and wider than regular DXRacer chairs, they all have these common basic features:
|Even though the height adjustment mechanism has to carry and move A LOT of weight, it still works perfectly fine and allows you to adjust your seat's height to your liking.
|There has to be a good framework to carry that weight: the Tank Series also has the well-known super sturdy steel framework built inside the seat and backrest.
|All DXRacer chairs are ergonomically shaped to match their specific target group's body size. That's why small and/or lightweight gamers might not find the Tank Series comfortable at all, and should rather look at a different series (hint again: Formula Series).
|Headrest & Lumbar Cushion:
|Every DXRacer Chair comes with two separate cushions for the headrest and lumbar area, and so does the Tank Series.
Features of the DXRacer Tank Series
The Tank Series definitely stands out among DXRacer’s different series, and these are the reasons for it:
(Frank) The Tank: Extra Big!
While most DXRacer series have similar basic dimensions, the Tank Series definitely something else: the back rest is way higher, the seating area is wider and the cushioning is thicker. Images describe it better than words ever could, so check out the direct comparison to the DXRacer Racing Series:
Extra big aluminum base:
Also the 5-star aluminum base has been enlarged: the diameter is 20% bigger than at any other DXRacer chair out there, which offers even more stability.
Bigger reinforced Wheels:
The Tank Series also has larger wheels at the bottom: their size has been increased by 30%, so they will ‘carry that weight’.
4D Arm Rests:
The Tank Series has the famous ‘4D Arm Rests’ by DXRacer that can be adjusted in four different dimensions.
Recline up to 120 degrees:
Due to the higher weight limit, the recline is a bit smaller compared to other DXRacer chairs: a 120 degree maximum recline is still a super nice thing to have to get that additional lounge feeling.
