Introducing the PLAYSEAT CHALLENGE X – LOGITECH G EDITION
Logitech G, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOG), and Playseat introduced the newest sim racing chair, the Playseat Challenge X – Logitech G Edition. Designed for Logitech G racing wheel and pedals, this new chair is a lightweight, foldable carbon steel frame and features a fully adjustable seat with Playseat’s Actifit™️ breathable materials, providing sim racers with a racing chair that delivers exceptional comfort, versatility, durability and the performance needed to stay fully immersed in the race.
“There was a considerable amount of collaboration on this product to make the Challenge X more functional, comfortable and overall, a better racing experience, than traditional desktop gaming chairs. During that process our teams focused on three key areas of a sim racing chair and we couldn’t be more happy with the results.” said Jim Hoey, head of simulation marketing at Logitech G.
The Playseat Challenge X – Logitech G Edition features three new enhanced upgrades, including X-Adapt™ seat adjustments, ActiFit™️ breathable material and a hard mounted pedal plate with tilt positioning. The new Playseat Challenge X – Logitech G Edition features:
- Enjoy the perfect balance between comfort and stability with the 6 seating positions of X-Adapt™. Fine-tune positions of pedals and wheel to replicate the feeling of being in a car.
- Breathable ActiFit™️ material and its body-conforming design and adjustable rigidity offers superior support and thermal management, allowing racers to stay comfortable and cool. It also transfers force feedback and Trueforce perfectly.
- At only 11.6 kg the seat can be quickly folded and stored away – the ideal companion for drivers who want the full racing experience without the need of a dedicated space.
- Convenient cockpit entry system lets you easily jump into the driver’s seat and lock in for an exhilarating experience.
- Equipped with gearshift mount, allowing you to upgrade your race experience with the Logitech G Driving Force Shifter.
