Respawn today is announcing its Fall lineup of gaming chair options which include the 110, the Specter, and the Spire. All three chairs are geared towards gaming but offer something a little different to tailor to the needs of the gamer. The 110 for example is an affordable gaming chair option starting at $249 and carries the iconic racing chair design that most people are familiar with. This new revised model though keeps what was already popular about the 110 and adds improvements like the minimal stitching and an integrated lumbar and headrest.
The chair also comes with height-adjustable arms, a tilt tension knob, and a recline lever. Which lets you recline the back up to 135-degrees to find your preferred seating angle. It comes in five colorways – Gray Fabric, Gray, Red, Green, and Blue, and is already available for sale.
The Respawn Spire gaming chair uses cooling gel in the seat
Gaming chairs aren’t necessarily for everyone. At least when it comes to the traditional racing style design. The good news is that Respawn now offers the Spire. A new hybrid gaming-work chair that is just as capable at providing comfort while you work from home as it is at providing comfort while you sit down for a long gaming session.
The secret here, we think, is Respawn’s use of heat-dispersing gel in the seat. Which should help keep your butt cool if you’re sitting down for longer periods of time. Granted, it’s never a bad idea to get up and move around for a bit in the middle of all that. Which can also help with the heat issue. But if you work from home, stream or create content, or you simply like to game for long hours, this is a feature that is bound to help keep you more comfortable.
Alongside the cooling seat, the Spire also comes with numerous other features. It has a 3D knitted mesh back for airflow. There’s a height-adjustable tilting head rest too, and the seat slides to ensure your legs are at the most ergonomic angle. It even has flip-back arms. Flip-back arms, you say? Yes. Flip-back arms to give you a wider seat space that feels less restrictive. The only other chair to offer something similar that we’ve seen is the Mavix M9 with its optional FS 360 arm rests.
Additionally, you can recline the seat up to 115-degrees. What’s more is that you can actually lock the position as well. Something which wasn’t offered on Respawn’s Flexx gaming chair. The lack of which we weren’t too fond of. All-in-all, this is likely to be the one to go for if you want a more premium seating experience. The Spire launches in October for $599 in the Stealth colorway, or $649 in the Ghost colorway.
The Specter is a mid-tier option that feels anything but mid-tier
If upwards of $600 is out of your price range, Respawn has one more new chair that might fit your needs – the Specter. The Specter is another hybrid gaming-office chair that comes in at $499 in either Graphite or Onyx colorways.
It offers the same flip-back arms as the Spire and even has a mesh back for better air flow. Unlike the Spire though it offers a weight-activated lumbar support. When it comes to the seat, Respawn ditches the heat-dispersing gel and replaces it with a mesh. However, the seat is also using a waterfall design that conforms more easily to the backs of your knees. Which should provide a more natural-feeling comfort.
Respawn says this chair is available for purchase as of today and it ships in November.
