At first glance choosing the right DXRacer chair can seem like a daunting task.  However, once you understand a few basic principles it becomes a lot simpler.

Here’s what you need to know:

 The first thing to understand is that the chairs are bolstered on the sides, like a race car seat.  Therefore, it is very important to get a chair that can accommodate your body type.  If the chair is too narrow you may feel impingement from the bolsters.

Let’s break it down by Series…

Formula Series: 5’3″ to 5’9″, 110 to 180 lbs

 The F Series is ideal for persons that range in height from approximately 5’3″ to 5’9″ and weigh from 110 to 180 lbs.  Please note that the chair has a weight capacity of 265 lbs.  However, weight capacity is simply a measure of what weight the chair can safely support. It has nothing to do with comfort and fit.

Ideal body type is a narrow to medium build, i.e. – narrow to medium shoulders and narrow to medium waist, hips and legs.  The seat pan has bolstered sides created by the internal steel frame.  If you have large thighs the seat may feel too narrow.
