    I received the Alcantara Pro with Playseat Mat. The combination of those with my Logitech g920 wheel is incredible. The quality and attention to detail is incredible. I was also pleasently surprised at how compact the chair was when it came to storage. Can't wait to add more to this chair from Playseat!

    We started with the foldable entry level seat and it was great for our first year and decided to move up to a more substantial seat - The Alcantara Pro. It is spectacular and the positioning of the pedals and steering wheel is much more realistic. The assembly was pretty easy and we were up and driving within one hour. We appreciated the fast delivery too as this was a Christmas present.

    So much fun! So comfortable! The playseat Alcantara Pro was easy to build, made from quality parts, fit my Logitech wheel and pedals perfectly. It may seem a bit pricey when you're shopping for them, but seriously, its worth every penny. Its so comfortable, I sit in it to play all my games now. I even like the quality of the stitching! Anyways, if you're mulling at all if you should buy one, totally do it, you won't regret it! Delivery was fast as well.

    I had one of these years ago and thought there was some places for inprovement back then. After receiving my new on, I am definitely really surprised and excited that improvements were made. The frame is thicker and more stable. They also improved the connections of the parts, since they used to slide around some. Overal I'm super happy with it!

    I have a Thrustmaster t300rs gt racing wheel and bought this chair to mount it on in order to race on my ps4 and pc. This chair has far surpassed my expectations. I have had an absolute blast with the beginning of my new hobby of sim driving. This chair is sturdy (I'm a big guy at 6'4" and 300lbs) and comfortable. I have no issues with my height and the adjustments that it allows for the wheel height and distance, along with the distance to the pedals. I would recommend this product in a heartbeat, and already have.

    I was looking for a good quality set up to use for F1 sim driving.
    I looked at various options available and decided that a Playseat was the way to go.

    Then came the discision of which one to buy.

    The range of Playseat products is excellent and there is someting for all budgets and needs.

    I finally settled on the Evolution beause the more upright seating position if better for me personally.

    It arrived very quickly and was quie easy and quick to set up.
    Build quality is very good and it is sturdy without being too heavy.

    I use the Fanated CSL Elite F1 and it fitted perfectly.
    I have diven many laps on many tracks and find it is extremely comfortable.

    My car control and speed has improved significantly since using the Evolution which is a big plus point for me.
    I drive every week in a League race which means I am in the seat for quite some time so it is important to be comfortable to be consistent.

    Would I recommend the Playseat Evolution?
    Yes I would, and I already have!

    Upgrades from a playseat challenge and I am totally happy with it. The playseat Is not cheap but worth every euro, i additionally gotnthe seat slider and a floor mat - making it easier to adjust it when the kids want to play, without sacrificeing tje wooden floor.

    Two minimal complaints: installing the seat slider is a bit tricky, esp. because its full of grease. And there is a little flex in the steering wheel holder - I do not think, that it makes any difference, but the steering wheel moves slightly.

    I recently treated my self to an upgrade from my Playseat challenge and logitech set up to some fanatec gear with the Playseat evolution. I'm so glad that I did. To start with the delivery was prompt and the seat was well packaged and protected for transit. The instructions are simple and clear and while building the seat the quality can be seen. Once completed ( in 30 mins) the finish of the seat is superb. My fanatec wheel and pedals bolted straight onto the pre-drilled holes and the cables were easy to route and secure with cable ties though I did need to source some nuts and bolts for the pedals.
    I have now had several sessions lasting well over an hour at a time with the seat and I can say that it is very comfortable and stable with very little flex from the frame. There is a lot of adjustability so finding the right driving position was easy. My only criticism would be that the angle of the back support cannot be adjusted but this is only a minor gripe given how much of the rest of the chair can be moved.
    Finally onto the part my Wife likes, I can easily stow it away by separating the seat from the wheel/pedal mount. The seat folds up and goes in the cupboard under my stairs while the wheel and pedals go behind my sofa. This takes seconds to do and means I can clear the living room ( at least until I set up the spare bedroom as a sim room!).
    In summary the Playseat Evolution is a Great value peice of kit!

    I decided this year to treat myself to an upgrade from my trusty Playseat Challenge and Logitech G29. 4 days after ordering the Evolution it arrived. To start with everything is well packaged and protected for transit. After unpacking and checking the parts it took around 30 minutes to assemble, including the adjustable seat rack.

    The instructions were easy to follow and the finish of the parts is very good. It looks very cool and high quality. My new Fanatec gear bolted straight on and is solidly kept in place. Once seated it took a few minutes to adjust the driving position but again this was very simple thanks to the generous adjustability of the Evolution.

    The seat is comfortable so long sessions will not be a problem and there is very little movement from the wheel or pedal mount. When not in use I split the seat in two, storing the chair under the stairs and the wheel/pedals unit behind the sofa which my Wife finds very nice!

    In all, given the quality and finish of the seat, the price is worth every penny and I would recommend the Playseat Evolution to any one who wants to take their sim racing to another level.

    Today I have finally been able to use my Playseat Evolution having waited to receive my new wheel to attach to it. And I can happily say that I'm impressed. This was an upgrade from my Challenge seat and it is an improvement in all areas. Delivery was fast and everything is well packaged. The build quality and finish is excellent. It was simple to assemble and is very stable. My fanatec kit bolted straight to the mounting points and is very well secured. The cables are easy to route and a couple of well placed cable ties keep things nice and tidy.
    The seat itself is very comfortable and I'm sure some long sessions will be no problem ( today I drove for over an hour). There is plenty of adjustability so finding the correct driving position is easy. For me the ability to separate the seat from the wheel/pedal mount is a bonus as it allows me to stow it away. To finish it off the Playseat floor mat provides a decent non slip base. In summary, a great peice of kit!

    I recently brought the evolution white whilst struggling to find a good chair. This chair is perfect for me I love how it feels very similar to the seats in my car. I brought mine with the seat slider and gear shift holder which I would highly recommend to anyone semi serious about doing some sim racing/driving. Moving from a wheel and pedal stand and separate chair to this has been perfect, effortless setup and easy to swap the wheel over. 100% would recommend.

    I’ve been sorely missing driving my IRL car, so decided to order a Playseat after trying to use a Logitech G29 without one (pro tip: don’t do this). The seat makes all the difference, and it’s kept me playing Gran Turismo & F1 2019 every evening since it arrived. My sanity is thankful.

    Iv been sim racing a few years, but using a wheel and pedal stand with a pc chair. Desided now was the time to finally get a seat and rig where seat position could be same all the time and so i dont have pain in my lower back if i did a endurance race.
    So took the leap and placed my order. Really quick delivery and on time as per the tracker.
    The putting it together was pretty straight forward. Id say toughest part is actually getting the pedal and steering colum positions just right but not to difficult.
    Seat is lovely both in looks feel and comfort. Since getting the seat in the right positions for me iv even notice my lap times starting to get faster! So even better!
    Overall this is a great product which i have no regrets making the leap and getting. If you thinking about this then you should go for it!

    I've had this for a couple of weeks now and I'm really enjoying it. It took around 30 minutes to fully set up and connect my wheel and pedals without any hassle, it even comes with a few extra screws to attach them. The seat is OK even though I'm not a fan of leather seats. All I all it's great value for money, I'd definitely recommend it.

    Ordered this as an upgrade from my playseat challenge in the hope it would do better to support my, let’s say, ‘wider’ frame. Although it took a few attempts to get everything adjusted to where I’m comfortable with it I definitely think it’s worth the money and the comfort factor of it is massive. The first big purchase towards what will eventually become my full sim set up. My cat has also given it a five star rating. As soon as I’d finished building it he was asleep in the seat within minutes aswell as enjoying all the fun that comes along with unboxing!

    Very pleased with my order from Playseat Store, I bought this as a birthday gift for my partner. It was delivered within the 48 hours as promised which I was surprised about due to the ongoing climate. I had tracking updates all the way up to the item being delivered. The item was double boxed and seemed to be easy to assemble (didn’t do it myself), took a few times for him to get the right seating position but once he had it, it was good to go. Would definitely order from here again and would highly recommend. Thanks.

    The okay seat evolution is a great seat, it's very comfortable if you're gaming for extended amounts of time. It's very easy to build and set up and feels very good quality. However being a taller person I feel as though there could be a little more adjustment between the pedal and steering wheel positions. Overall it's a fantastic platform and a good start for any sim racer or casual gamer

    This is my review of the Playseat Evolution and Gear Shift Holder PRO

    By Harry Shreeve aged 14

    Playseat Evolution and Gear Shifter PRO review

    When the package arrived very shortly after purchase (very fast 48 hour delivery considering it came from another country) I rushed it inside to release it form its box. The wonderful looking seat was packaged perfectly and safely, leaving it impossible to become damaged. I removed the chair from its packaging and with a smile on my face I constructed the fine looking racing simulator. At purchase I was worried of the hours I would have to spend building it; however I soon realised upon installation that this was going to be a very quick task. The instructions were informative and easy to follow. I sat in the seat to test its stability and feel, however found myself struggling to remove myself from the seat due to its sheer comfort. I could sleep in it! I am typing this review whilst sat in it! When using the product you find yourself to feel just like you are sat in a real car, as it gives such a realistic feel, it really is the perfect racing simulator set up, a real 'must have item' for any car enthusiasts. Personally I use a wheel with force feedback (a Logitech G920) and was worried the seat would wobble when the force feedback chirps up like a raging bull, however the whole item is rigid and could take whatever the wheel could throw at it.

    To summarise in one sentence I would say: A must have item, rigid, beautiful, comfy and perfect.

    Purchasing the seat was simple and quick, you just search your item click on it, add to basket and safely and securely order your fabulous new racing set up. But there is more! You can buy accessories to further improve your already awesome Playseat, for example you could take it up a notch (in terms of realism) and purchase the seat slider which gives you the ability to move your seat back and forth just like a real car! This is also handy if your mates or any visitors fancy a drive on the rig, and they are taller or shorter than you, this is the perfect accessory to easily change the height, so anyone could use it! Also, if like me you have a gear shifter there is the Playseat Gear Shift Holder PRO which is firmly secured onto your Playseat and is adjustable for anyone who wants to use it. The Gear Shift Holder is very stable and refuses to wobble no matter how rough you are with it!

    So finally what would I rate this perfect product on a scale of 1 to 10? 1000000000000000 is what I would rate it. It really is the perfect racing simulator from Playseat.

    Thank you Playseat for this wonderful package, with amazing value for money. It is the best birthday present money could buy.

    This setup has made it more comfortable for driving for long periods. Back still gets a bit sore but I've put a pillow behind me to support my back.

    Apart from that I don't have any complaints, easy put together, well made and has a lot of adjustability.

    Would recommend for someone who is just getting into sim racing.

    As someone who's been eyeing this up for a while I can say that I should have pulled the trigger months ago! At first, I worried the steering column and pedal platform might flex but this fear went away immediately after feeling the quality of the parts.

    Putting it together was super simple and it folds away about as small as I could expect.

    Best of all, when you're driving it all fades away and you can completely immerse yourself in the game. Couldn't recommend it anymore!

Easy to setup using the simple and easy instructions and I like how cable ties were included to help manage the cables, also bought the GearShiftHolder Pro and my only criticism is that there is no instructions for installing it on the left side, you just have to figure it out yourself. Otherwise very happy and loving it so far and loving the suede, thank you!

    People say that the best way to make you dream come true is to do that when you're adult hah. Frame and seat quality is top of the lane. Alcantara feels well done, when you sit down, it feels like your mom hugs you tight, so you could be safe. Talking about the frame, i have some issues with it. There was some top rusts, although it doesn't effect anything, i still wasn't pleased to see it. If you liked putting lego while you were kid, this stuff is a good test of your long gone skills. Just be focus and check all manual books before you start putting everything together and of course don't forget to tight everything up, cause you don't want you seat moving backwards when you pressing your load cell brake. If i would come back in time would i buy it again? Answer is yes. Even though it's a wee bit rusty in some places (probably cause they were stored in cold or wet facility) it's still worth money and all that time that me, putting it together, and the engineers, that created it, spent. Fast delivery, good and safe packaging, can't wait to work with these guys again. Stay safe out there, think is that, is what you want, is that gonna suit you, and only then buy.

    The Playseat Evolution as a product has brilliant adjustability and makes whatever game you are playing more immersive. I would definitely recommend getting a force feedback wheel, which you can buy for playseat store and in my personal opinion the Alcantara version is worth the extra money.

    I finally decided to go for it and order myself a playseat, not knowing that 2 days later the whole country would go into lock down due to the coronavirus pandemic! Somehow it still arrived the following week, one day ahead of schedule even, and it certainly has got some good use already during this strange period.

    I've had a steering wheel and pedals for almost 2 years now, but due to not having anywhere suitable to mount them and not finding time, I have barely been able to enjoy them. Now thanks to Playseat I finally can do that, and I really am enjoying it so much, maybe even more than I thought I would. I only now wonder why I waited so long to buy one...

    Regarding the seat itself, I am very happy with the product. It is comfortable, it's got full adjustability to get the right position, and it's very sturdy despite being more towards the lower end of the market in pricing. I do fully recommend it to anyone considering buying one, particularly if you are not able to or don't want to spend the money on a more expensive setup.

    As others have said, the assembly was very straight forward and I had it all ready to go in under an hour, including with the seat slider that I purchased additionally. It handily comes with all the tools you need (a couple of Allen keys) and even extra bolts for mounting the pedals. That part was the only bit that I had a little difficultly with, which was aligning the holes of the pedal plate to my pedal unit (g29) but for now I have attached it through the lower row of bolts only (there are 2 rows on this unit) and it feels very strong and secure.

    Overall, a very happy customer!

    This totally changes how you play and enjoy the game. The very best value in simulator setups, hands down. You simply can't beat the quality for the price. Smart design, well built, simple. Anybody who wants to elevate their sim experience, and doesn't want to gauge their wallet simply can't go wrong with Playseat.

    After doing research and deciding on the Evolution there are no regrets. The seat just plain works. The seat is comfortable. The set up was easy, the Logitec G29 fits, though 2 holes for the pedal didn’t quite line up- no big deal. I share the seat with my kids and it takes seconds to change/adjust the seat for driver changes. We got the seat sliders as well and fell that completes the setup nicely.

    First I would like to say this is my second playseat. My previous seat was the challenge i love this seat because it was foldable and it huge me. It was very comfortable. That said the playseat Evolution is very strong and sturdy and easy to assemble. The instructions was easy to follow. But take a little time getting ues to, the seat is wider and easy to get in and out of. I also love that you can adjust the pedals. Overall my racing lap times have decreased, i don't know if it's because of the new seat but i do think it probably because I am very comfortable. Love it!!

    I was after a gaming seat to suit a rather unique set-up and the specification of the playseat evo looked (and is) perfect. The seat is comfortable for extended periods of time, the build quality is very good, no wobble or play in anything. The assembly instructions were easy to follow and it didn't take long to put together. Oh and it looks great.

    On a side note I found the customer service team to be friendly and helpful.

    Highly recommended

    When the 1st shipment arrived I think the Fed Ex Driver was more excited than me. I has able to put it together with a little help in less than 1 hour. The seat slider was a little tricky but got it done and it works like a charm.
    I had ordered the mat but I didn't arrive with the 1st shipment, but was there the next day by the same Fed Ex driver. He was excited to know how I liked the seat, so I invited him in to check it out!
    He loved the seat and mentioned that he did flight simulation and was gonna check out Playseat!
    The mat really finished it all nicely and will save my flooring.
    GREAT PRODUCT

    After many years of non playing video game, this year is a Reborn for me with E-racing. I was playing Gran Turismo, 20 years ago, and now i re discover Gran Turismo with a Playseat Evolution and a T300RS GT.
    A New Era of video game is in front of me with this kind of equipment.
    All the material is installed since 2 days, so it is a little bit too early to have a right opinion.
    I already have ideas to upgrade my Playseat.
    I will share my upgrade soon...

More realistic feel especially with the feed back the wheel gives. Build quality is excellent really sturdy and comfortable, can sit on the chair for hours. It's a must buy for anyone that's into racing games. Wish I bought it sooner

    I’ve been using the playseat for about 1 month now. Setting it up was straightforward and took me about 30 min. Thrustmaster T300rs could be mounted on it easily.
    The racing experience got so much better with this Playseat. No more back- or legpain after multiple hours of racing. The seat barely moves while driving.
    Materials used are very decent and durable. This is a one-time buy (until you want to upgrade ofcourse).
    The seat can easily be adjusted from small kids to tall adults.

    The seat arrived more promptly than expected. It was a little tricky to put together, I could have used an extra pair of hands. The seat slider made it harder but was worth it.
    The driving position is good and my logitec wheel and pedals attach to it firmly.
    The centre post impedes the brake pedal very slightly but thats a minor gripe.
    I haven’t used it at length and I’m a heavy guy so can’t vouch to how it stands up yet but so far, i would recommend this product and i would buy it again.

    i've been debating if i should invest in a racing cockpit for several years. I finally decided to purchase the Evolution Alcantara and a G29 wheel. Setup was easy and i'm not the hands on type at all. Frame is very sturdy and all components are adjustable. The cockpit contains a bar down the center, i haven't had any issues with left foot or right foot braking, though right foot braking is more comfortable. Gaming in a racing cockpit definitely adds an awesome level of immersion, so if you are on a tight budget id definitely recommend the Evolution Alcantara + G29 setup :) Also i improved my lap times on GT Sport after 1 day of use ;) so that i'm super happy about :)

    Going from a wheel stand to this is an absolute delight. I have a Logitech G29 and it works beautifully with it. Having the wheels and seat and pedals all braced together means you don't get the usual distractions of a wheel stand constantly trying to shift position.

    When you get the box you will think "Well they forgot to pack something in here" because it is far too small to contain everything. I can only assume the guys at playseat store spend half their life in a sardine packing factory and the other half playing tetris, because from this small box emerged everything I ordered.

    All the stuff is good quality and fits together well. Don't rush the build part, enjoy it. look at it like it is the best meccano set you will ever use.

    Once built dont go strapping down all the wires to the frame straight away, have a few hours of getting used to it. I thought I had the perfect driving position but after playing for a couple of hours i tweaked it around, so best to get happy with the set up before you commit to where you run your wires.

    If you get a shifter stand get the ones that attach down near the seat and not up by the wheel, it is a much more natural place for it to be.

    I am 41, i should have grown out of stuff like this but I was grinning like an idiot on my first go. Love it.

    After having played with the Wheel Stand Pro for a few years, I wanted to upgrade my simracing feeling. After a sophisticated research, I decided to purchase the Playseat Alcantara Pro.

    After one week of intense racing, I am absoultely convinced that this the best seat in this price rance. Stable, nice design, comfortable, even after several hours of playing. Wouldn't change it, wouldn't buy anything else.

    The installation was easy to do. Thanks to the help of my father I managed to set it up fast. The individual adjustment for my body size was no problem.
