Clutch Chairz is among the top manufacturers of gaming chairs in the market today.
Chances are you've already seen their chairs while browsing online as a popular game streamer, Pewdiepie uses their chairs. For this review, we will be looking at their best-seller, the Clutch Chairz Throttle model.
A quick look at the Throttle gaming chair and you will notice that it is quite sleek in design. The chair is designed for the average-sized gamer.
As you would expect with a premium-priced gaming chair, the Throttle features some excellent quality craftsmanship and features.
With a sleek racing-seat type design (the standard in this market), you are ensured that it will be able to deliver proper back support and comfort.
So, should you invest in this gaming chair? Is it worth every penny? Let's take an in-depth look at what the Clutch Throttle gaming chair brings to the table and gauged its place in the upper echelon of gaming chairs.
In terms of aesthetics, the Clutch Chairz Throttle features a pretty straightforward design. It uses the always visually pleasing, racing seat-style look.
It also comes with two extra support pillows (lumbar and headrest). The headrest pillow uses straps to secure itself above while the giant lumbar pillow is placed behind, at your lower back.
Within the pillows are memory foam material that is also used within the seat and backrest. Memory foam provides excellent comfort as well as support.
It also returns to its original shape and prevents warping issues that are common with standard cushions.
The backrest of the Clutch Chairz Throttle can be easily adjusted/reclined between 90 to 180 degrees.
That's an entirely flat horizontal position. It is also extremely stable and prevents any wobbling and tipping issues when the backrest is set to a 180-degree angle.
If you ever wanted to take a quick nap, it's possible with this gaming chair.
The Clutch Chairz Throttle is available in five color variants.
While it doesn't have the sheer number of versions as the Secretlab Omega gaming chair, it offers enough variety to cover most gaming rig setups. All in all, the Clutch Chairz Throttle gaming chair line delivers everything you would expect, aesthetically, with a gaming chair.
So, since now that we know it looks the part, does it act the part as well?
While the Clutch Chairz Throttle comes off as having a sleek design, it is quite spacious in actuality. It is designed to accommodate both averages sized to heavier set individuals.
The seat also provides just enough give that it feels soft but doesn't feel as if you are sinking into the chair.
The armrest provides more than adequate comfort as it features "4D" technology. The armrests can be adjusted and moved upwards, down, and sideways. It can also be rotated for about 10 degrees in every direction.
Since it can also be positioned outwards, it can give girthier gamers some extra space if they need it.
I also like how the armrest can be adjusted to any height. For me, who works in front of the computer, having an armrest that can adapt to the desk is essential.
It can prevent my shoulders from straining due to prolonged use of the mouse.
I do want to note that the seats will require a "breaking in" period.
Once the rigidness of the seat cushions has been adequately broken in, it will be able to provide the proper level of softness for optimum comfort.
Another critical aspect of the Throttle gaming chair model is that the chair's height is exceptional.
For younger gamers or those who are relatively short, this chair might be too high to provide adequate comfort. This is something to mull over for certain players out there.
Overall, the Clutch Chairz Throttle gaming chair delivers the level of comfort needed to support your posture during prolonged gaming sessions.
It is also ideal for office work and for those whose job requires them in front of the computer for most of the day.
The Clutch Chairz Throttle is jam-packed with features that improve upon the overall performance of a gaming chair. First off, I would like to note that this gaming chair incorporates a sturdy steel metal base and frame.
With its robust construction, it is no surprise that the Throttle can easily support the weight of up to 330 lbs.
The backrest can also be reclined down to a horizontal position. You can comfortably lie down and take a quick nap if you wish.
The base of the Throttle gaming chair provides excellent stability and balance to prevent you from tipping over if you do want to position the backrest down to a 180-degree angle.
The armrest utilizes 4-directional adjustment to provide you with the right angle when using the mouse for work or gaming.
The castors (wheels) of the chair are also designed in a way that it prevents markings on any surface.
You will also get a tilt/lock mechanism that can move the backrest within a 12-degree angle if you wish to take a little breather.
The Clutch Chairz Throttle is an excellent and well-built gaming chair that delivers on all fronts. While the price tag might give some gamers pause.
If you are looking for something reliable with excellent brand recognition, then Clutch Chairz should be included in your shortlist of choice. This is a trusted brand used by well-known streamers out there.
