Cheap chair options
GTRacing and Killabee are two popular cheap chair brands that usually deliver to Canada. However, since 2020, demand for chairs has spiked. At the same time, global shipping logistics have become much more complex. As a result, both brands now only sell to Canadians via Amazon. Products tend to come in and out of stock. As a result, it’s best to check each brand’s Amazon store to see what’s available.
GTRacing’s Classic GT909 Red is one of Amazon’s best-selling cheap chairs. It comes with 2D armrests, deep recline, and a 2-year warranty. The GT909 is part of GTRacing’s Pro Series. These are racing-style chairs in a range of designs.
At present, only two models are available from Amazon’s Canada store:
When all GTRacing chairs are back in stock, expect a wider range of options. Beyond Pro Series models, GTRacing also offers chairs with footrests, Bluetooth speakers, or both. Check out our GTRacing Brand Review to learn more about their product lines. To keep track of what’s available now, check out GTRacing’s Amazon storefront for Canadians:
Killabee makes a range of popular cheap chairs. Among their top sellers are a range of footrest and affordable luxury gaming chairs.

Maxnomic is a German brand founded in 2014. Since their launch, they have been one of the most popular chairs brands on the pro esports scene.
