E-Win Brand Review: their best gaming chairs

Founded in 2002, E-Win started as an OEM office chair manufacturer. In 2016, they launched their own line of E-Win Racing gaming chairs. This E-Win brand review covers its 2020 lineup of gaming chairs.

E-Win gaming chair review
E-Win offers basic and also pro-level ergonomic chairs. All models support at least 400 pounds.

Today, the E-Win product line has six different models. At present, E-Win offers free shipping to the United States, Mexico and the EU.

Shared E-Win chair features

All E-Win ergonomic chairs have a 400-pound weight capacity and 5-year warranty.

E-Win chair recline angles
All E-Win chairs come with a backrest recline that starts at 85°.

Another feature common to all E-Win chairs is a backrest recline from 85° to 155°. Most chairs tilt from 90°. An 85° tilt means you can angle the backrest 5° forward.

Before E-Win, Maxnomic and Secretlab were the only brands offering this feature. It’s especially useful for gamers and others who do intense work that encourages leaning forward.

E-Win gaming chair reviews

Beyond the shared qualities, each E-Win chair has unique features. This section reviews all six models in the E-Win collection. ChairsFX approves four out of the six. Reviews are in order of the cheapest to most expensive.

Knight Series

Direct buy price: $199

E-Win Knight Series chair review
Knight Series chairs have basic features and flat, wide seats.

The Knight Series is E-Win’s cheapest gaming chair. It has basic features plus a flat, wide seat ideal for people with thick legs or wide hips. Knight Series chairs come in a range of PVC leather styles. PVC is the least breathable type of cover material, meaning it can get sticky in hot weather. On the positive side, PVC is the most durable type of faux leather — this stuff will look like new for years.

E-Win Knight Series sizing

E-Win rates the The Knight Series to support users from 5’3″ to 6’1″, with a maximum weight capacity of 400 pounds.

  • Seat width & depth: 21.7″ (W) x 22″ (D)
  • Backrest width & height: 22.6″ (W), 33.9″ (H)
  • Total height: 51.2″ to 55.5″

From our view, the chair dimensions are too large for users under 5’6″. Extra-small users should check our roundup of the best small gaming chairs for better-fitting options.

A more accurate size rating is people between 5’6″ and 6’1″.

E-Win Knight Series vs Champion Series
Knight Series chairs have a flat wide seat, but lack the tilt lock function of the pricier E-Win chairs.

As for width, Knight Series chairs use a flat-seat model that allows for a wider spread of the legs. That means people (within the height range) with wide hips or thick legs should enjoy a good fit.

E-Win Knight features

The Knight Series is a basic chair. It lacks the seat angle tilt-lock of other E-Win chairs and only has 2D armrests. One plus is that the backrest reclines from 85° to 155°. That means you can angle the backrest 5° forward. It’s a handy feature to support your back while leaning forward in the chair.

  • Functionality: 2D armrests; recline from 85° to 155°; rocking with tilt tension.
  • Padding: high-quality cold-cured foam.
  • Upholstery: PVC leather or mesh fabric.

Buying advice

The E-Win Knight Series ranks among our best wide-seated chairs under $250. For the price, you get basic adjustable features plus a nifty 5° forward backrest incline. That plus the 5-year warranty makes this an excellent value for the money.

Champion Series

Direct buy price: $299

For $100 more than the Knight Series, the Champion Series offers a big jump in quality. Most Champion Series chairs use a premium PU leather blend (there’s also one mesh fabric model). PU is less durable than PVC but softer, more breathable, and more luxurious.

E-Win Champion Series chairs
Champion Series models have the same pro features as the world’s best esports chairs.

More impressive are the Champion Series adjustable features. Those offer the same rich ergonomics as the world’s best pro esports chairs.

Champion Series sizing

The Champion Series supports has smaller dimensions that the Knight Series. It also has ridged edges along the sides of the seat, which restrict leg movement. Like the Knight Series, we suggest this model for users 5’6″ to 6’1″. Despite the maximum weight capacity of 400 pounds, these chairs are best for slim sizes.

  • Seat width & depth: 21.3″ (W) x 21.7″ (D)
  • Backrest width & height: 20.5″ (W), 37.8″ (H)
  • Total height: 51.2″ to 55.5″

Champion Series features

E-Win Champion Series chair features
Champion Series chairs come with 4D armrests and a seat angle tilt-lock.

The Champion Series has a full suite of adjustable features. These match the features of both the Secretlab Omega and Maxnomic Pro.

  • Functionality: 4D armrests; recline from 85° to 155°; seat angle tilt-lock.
  • Padding: high-quality cold-cured foam.
  • Upholstery: stain-resistant PU leather.

Buying advice

Are you looking for a full-featured ergonomic gaming chair for less than $300? The E-Win Champion Series is one of the best options out there. Pro features and a 5-year warranty for less than $300 is an amazing deal. No other sub-$300 chair offers such an impressive package.

Calling Series

Direct buy price: $249

Calling Series chairs cost $50 less than Champion Series models. For meager savings, there’s a big drop in quality. These chairs only have a rocking function, with no seat angle tilt-lock.

E-Win Calling Series gaming chairs

Sizing

Calling Series chairs have slightly smaller dimensions than the Champion Series. E-Win rates them for users 5’3″ to 5’9″ with a weight capacity of 400 pounds.

  • Seat width & depth: 21.3″ (W) x 22.8″ (D)
  • Backrest width & height: 21.3″ (W), 35″ (H)
  • Total height: 50″ to 53.5″

ChairsFX rates Calling Series chairs for slim users between 5’6″ and 5’9″. If you have thick legs or wide hips, this chair may be too tight for comfort.

Calling Series features

This chair has basic features, with the standout being the 400-pound support.

  • Functionality: 2D armrests; recline from 85° to 155°; rocking function with tilt-tension.
  • Padding: high-quality cold-cured foam.
  • Upholstery: stain-resistant PU leather.

Buying advice

If you’re going to buy a chair that lasts five years, saving $50 gets you very basic features. Instead, consider paying the $50 extra and buying a Champion Series chair instead.

Hero Series

Direct buy price: $359

E-Win Hero Series gaming chairs

Hero Series chairs have the same features as Calling Series chairs, with taller dimensions. For the extra height, you pay over $100 more than what Calling Series chairs cost. The features you get for the price are uninspiring:

  • Functionality: 2D armrests; recline from 85° to 155°; rocking function with tilt-tension.
  • Padding: high-quality cold-cured foam.
  • Upholstery: stain-resistant PU leather.

Hero Series sizing

This is a big and tall gaming chair with an extra-large backrest. It supports users from 5’9″ to 6’5″, with a weight capacity of 400 pounds.

  • Seat width & depth: 21.3″ (W) x 22.4″ (D)
  • Backrest width & height: 22″ (W), 36″ (H)
  • Total height: 53.8″ to 57.6″

Buying advice

Spending so much for a chair for such basic features isn’t wise. Check out our best big and tall gaming chairs for better value options. Most models at that price offer rich pro features. Meanwhile, models with basic features cost much less than the Hero Series.

  • Backrest width & height: 22″ (W), 37″ (H)

Buying advice

This is the perfect chair for very tall or heavy users. Basketball players and pro wrestlers will find these models a perfect fit. Sumo-level sizes that need more width have an even bigger model to consider…

The Flash XL is a sumo-sized chair for super-heavyweights. Its rich ergonomic features and super-sturdy build make this a great choice for people over 400 pounds.

Detailed Flash XL chair review

Conclusion

Out of the six chairs in the E-Win product line, these stand out:

  1. Knight Series: basic chairs with extra-wide seats for under $200.
  2. Champion Series: full-featured pro gaming chairs for under $300.
  3. Flash and Flash XL chairs: super-heavyweight chairs with pro ergonomic features.

All E-Win gaming chairs come with a 5-year warranty. Only Secretlab and AKRacing match that level of protection. While E-Win isn’t as famous as those brands, the quality of their gaming chairs is close to that level. With another year or so of seasoning, E-Win looks poised to become a dominant brand in the gaming chair industry.
