    I love my new chair. Ive always played racing games with a remote. I came across a photo of your product on facebook. So I took a chanec and very happy I did. Bought the chair and the G920 race wheel with shifter and me and my 2 kids who are age 9 and 4. Always want to play forza 7 mortorsports. Now me and the family invite people to get a real experience of racing. I will never ever play with a remote again. Ive already told several people about playseat.com

    Experiencing working from home situation and having only one table for both work laptop and gaming desktop, I can't have a permanent setup on my table. Also, it could be cumbersome to have a wheel installed and having other things around.
    This chair definitely solves the problem - 1 minute to get it from a closet and set up and I can enjoy a couple of races in the evening. Then 1 minute to fold and move it back and my room is ready for the work in the morning.
    I have quite long legs and arms and the chair is still very comfortable. The only thing - it lacks a place to install a shifter, but I'm not sure how many people actually uses shifter and I saw the company is already working on that addition.

    I searched for a racing seat that doesn't use too much room - otherwise my wife would never have approved ;)
    The playseat challenge was the perfect decision. The assembly was easy, it folds away as promised, and the racing feeling, especially with VR, is awesome! And the price is really fair. Thx!

    The playseat is stable and can be set up quickly with the help of the picture instructions. Adjustment to the size is possible with various straps using Velcro, and the Velcro fasteners are generously dimensioned so that they hold up permanently.
    The steering wheel (here G27 Logitech) can be securely attached to the console with the included Allen screws, so nothing slips back and forth.
    The bracket for the pedals can be pulled out to the desired length and then locked with clamping screws, the adjustment range is sufficiently large. The pedal plate rests against a crossbar and is attached from behind by a wide strap with Velcro, so nothing slips at all. The steering wheel console can be folded up to get in and out; it is attached to the steering wheel bracket with a sturdy clamping screw with a detent. This also enables the desired height adjustment of the steering wheel for driving. There is even an extendable side arm to prevent the seat from tipping when getting in and out. To pack away, I just lift the pedal bracket (attached to the chair so that it can be rotated) and attach it to the steering wheel bracket with the help of an enclosed strap with Velcro.

    In summary, I can say that after a few adjustments, this playseat fits me like a glove, even during longer online races (up to 90 min) I sit more relaxed than ever before. Gone are the days when the steering wheel clamps on the table independently or the desk armchair suddenly slips on the castors, I should have got hold of such a device much earlier.

    The price is maybe a bit high at around 200 € but I definitely don't regret the purchase and recommend the seat to anyone who has little space.

    First I was a little uncertain because many reviews on other websites mention the stability of this playseat is an issue.
    After trying out the seat myself I have no doubts! Also the comfort of this seat is insane. I'm relatively small and light and the seat is perfect. No wiggling, no pressure marks, all in all a very good beginners model. Would recommend 12 out of 10 times ;-)

    In combination with the floor mat - incredible race feeling.

    I never bought a full sim rig or a racing seat with wheel mount because of the space. Since a I am no more kid with a personal room, I had the problem not to leave all my equipment in the room while I am not playing. Also, since I have a very limited amount of time available for gaming nowadays, my requirement was to be able to mount everything and play in a very short time, otherwise I would end up not even trying to mount my wheel and everything.

    This seat is really better then expected.
    Your back is well supported and the comfort is good.
    After playing it’s easy to stack it somewhere in a corner, so it won’t be in the middle of the room when not needed.
    For this price i think it’s verry good!

    I purchased a Playseat Challenge several weeks ago to pair with a Logitech g29. I love it! Very comfortable and immersive; it pairs extremely well with GT Sport and F1 2020 on my PS4. Excited to continue trying it with new games. The seat folds up very nicely when finished and honestly is quite comfortable just to sit in!. Would highly recommend - thanks Playseat! Will definitely be on the lookout for other pieces to add to my rig.

    According to this, playseat challenge was the perfect answer to my needs and I am very happy with the purchase. It is shorter but wider compared to what I was expecting, but still it is very fast and easy to hide and unhide. If you might have to move it between floors consider that it is a bit heavy when everything is mounted on it, but it is fully acceptable (maybe a kid won't be able to safely move it on stairs on his own). Last but not least, the price. The quality is good, sturdier than you might expect, but in the end 200+ € is not so far from a real full seat/racing rig. Mounting is ok, wobbles a little but not too much and the in/out mechanism is fair so far. But still, I would like to see this kind of seat in the 150€ range, it would be a steal. Will never happen tough, since other stands with no seat costs up to 120-150€, so they are all overpriced but in the end this playseat challenge is a better value and very fun to use.

    Received my Playseat Challenge last week, shipping was very quick to Canada (only a few days). Install was super easy and paired well with my G29. Seat works awesome! Very comfortable and easily adjustable. I'm taller than average, but doesn't feel cramped and seat is quite sturdy and folds well when not in use. Makes playing GT much more fun! Would recommend.

    Fantastic chair for getting into sim racing. A must have if you have a steering wheel and pedals. Enhances the experience 10x. Couldn't ask for more in terms of build quality - doesn't feel like a foldaway chair. Not lacking in terms of rigidity. No complaints

    I bought this racing seat simply because it was the only one in the market that could fit my needs: to have a decent racing chair that I could easily fold away. This chair is perfect for that and I am very pleased with my buy. This can compete with normal non-foldable seats as well.

    Usually I had to set up my wheel, pedals and all the wires to my desk and pc before and take them away after every gaming session, which was a pain in the a**. This seat literally makes playing into plug and play because I can store it with everything attached onto it - I just fold it out in one minute, plug usb and power in and I am ready to go. Folding away also is super easy and fast, I can do it in two minutes. Both I do without an issue and it's not something you get tired of. Seat stores nicely as you can see in the picture and it is decent-enough looking for my wife to approve it in our living room when folded. It could look better though if the logo in the back wasn't there.

    For a foldable seat this is very comfortable. I can easily play for hours and feel good about it. I am 180cm/86kg and the fit is just good (would fit to at least +10cm/kg decently). Upper back is the only minus as the headrest come quite forward, but it's not an issue to me though.

    I paid 200 euros for this including the shipping (1,5 weeks to my door in Finland), which is bargain. These go easily 150e in after market, so you'll be able to get decent money back once you get room for a bigger seat. Price-quality is very good and the product feels very sturdy. It comes with two pairs of bolts for wheel and the tools so you don't have to go looking for those in a hardware store.

    What I would change in this is to be able to choose a seat with either right or left handed opening (when you sit into it). That would make the wiring more easy when you have PC on right hand side and also attaching accessories (such as gearstick) to the wheel bar more practical. Now I have to be very careful with usb-wire because it hangs high. Also the instructions could be clearer, especially regarding adjustments. There could be a scale (lines) under the wheel and in the pedal pipes so that it would be easier to find the best adjustments (tilt of wheel, distance of pedals) each time.

    This is super fun product and near perfection. Would recommend 10/10.

    If like me you are new to SIM racing and have limited space then this seat from Playseat is perfect. I bought the Logitech G29 steering wheel and pedals and it fits perfectly on the steering plate.

    There is enough room on the steering wheel plate for bigger wheels, and wheels that bolt down. The seat itself can be adjusted in multiple places to make the driving comfortable. Here are a few of the things I really like about the Playseat:
    1. It was relatively easy to set up. 2. It is well made, there are nice stitching all over. The PS4 logo and blue colour are simply awesome to look at. 3. Multiple places to adjust the comfort of the seat. This was well thought out. 4. The steering wheel has a lot of options. One can bring the steering wheel closer or further away. You can tilt the plate forward or backwards depending on your seating or arm position and getting out of the seat is easy, the wheel can be unlocked and shifted over to the left. The movement almost feels like it does when getting out of a racing car. 5. The entire Playseat can be folded up and secured in seconds and it takes up minimal space. It can also stand upright or be laid lying flat without the need to disconnect the steering wheel and pedals, which is a bonus because when it comes to setting it up to play, it is two steps and you are done. 6. The use of velcro to tie up is clever and simple saving time. 7. Customer Support has been excellent so far. No complaints.

    What I don't fancy:
    1. The back of the seat to the headrest is a little too steep and I found my back getting sore. If I was shorter, I don't think it would be a problem. 2. The set-up manual would have been better if it used real photos instead of drawings. 3. The Playseat doesn't come with a gear shift plate, which was a little disappointing. I see they can be bought elsewhere, but it should have been part of the seat.

    Overall, I am very happy with the seat. It has given me endless hours of enjoyment already and I can definitely say it has improved my driving ten-fold. If I had the space and or a room for a fixed chair I would definitely consider something bigger and better, but for the price, size and ease of use, it is perfect.

    Just unpacked and assembled my Playseat Challenge. Quality seems to be very good and stable, mounting of the wheel and pedals was no problem (Logitec). Seat is very comfortable for me (1.74 cm, 75 kg), not too tight at all. Forgot to connect the power cord to the wheel, so I had to mount it 2 times. Please make sure that you connect all cords to lo lower side of the wheel before mounting the playseat! Folded seat fits easily in a regular wardrobe. Wheel and pedals can stay mounted, very easy to make it ready for race again. Looking forward to finally get my PS5!
