Legit Reviews has been doing hardware reviews targeted to PC gamers for more than a decade, but believe it or not, we have never reviewed nor owned an actual gaming chair. We’ve used a handful of office chairs over the years, but nothing that was aimed specifically at gamers. When our friends over at 4GamerGear offered us the opportunity to look at Vertagear’s new S-Line of Racing Chairs we figured that we’d give it a shot. Vertagear is a brand new company and this is their first gaming chair line that will be available in both North America and Europe. At first we thought Vertagear was somehow related to AKRACING, a very popular brand of gaming chairs that is widely available in Europe, but we were told by 4GamerGear that they two are separate entities.
Vertagear launched the S-Line of gaming chairs this week and they are three different models available with differing features and price points.
The sample we received is the Vertagear SL2000 in the Black/Red color combination, but you can also get it in Black/White, Black/Green, Black/Blue, Black/Pink and Carbon Black.
Here is a brief description of the Vertagear SL2000 and the key specifications.
A combination of form and function, Vertagear’s SL-2000 series focus on ergonomics, design, and functionality. Designed to give wide range of adjustability that gives gamers the best comfort and support in every gaming position for extended period of time. High backrest is designed to provide neck, shoulder and lumbar support.
Adjustable seat height
To prevent repetitive stress, having the correct ergonomic posture is important when seated for a longer time. Seat adjustability makes sure every type of user from different heights can adjust the chair to their unstressed posture. Good range of height adjustability to ensure you are at the optimum angle in relation to your desk.
Cushioned and contoured to the shape of the arm with adjustability in height gives support to the gaming arm and prevents repetitive stress.

The SL2000 is made of high quality PVC leather, which makes it extremely durable and gives the chair a luxurious look. This material is easy to clean and maintain due to it’s stain- and water-resistant characteristics.
The SL2000 padding is made of high densed foam, which adds great support and seat comfort to the chair. The open-cell breathing structure, makes sure that heat arised from the human body temperature won’t get trapped inside. This gives great comfort to the user even when seated for extended period of time.
The SL2000 is constructed from a steel frame that assures a solid structure. The aluminum 5-star base keeps the chair solid, stable and lightweight. Assembled with a Class 4 gaslift, indicates for better durability and ease of use. Our Class 4 Gas Lift has thicker walls to accommodate the higher pressure and stability.
