For those who’re like me, you’re keen on the joys and pleasure of sim racing, however you do not have the time, cash, and area to spend money on a full-blown racing seat. Logitech has apparently solved this problem with its new foldable Playseat Problem X racing chair that provides you the expertise of a sim racing cockpit with not one of the drawbacks.
Logitech’s new seat is all about flexibility and, to some extent, affordability. The seat is reportedly extraordinarily light-weight (11.6 kg) and folds in half whenever you’re not utilizing it. That permits you to use your entire valuable room/workplace area that might be completely taken up by a conventional racing cockpit. On prime of this, the seat can be folded in half with a wheel and pedals linked, bettering the Playseat’s flexibility much more.
The seat itself is made out of a breathable ActFit materials that is designed for consolation and retains you cool throughout lengthy racing classes. There are six completely different peak changes as effectively, relying on how tall or how laid again you need your seat to be. Protecting the chair collectively are X-adapt hinges which can be constructed out of flow-forged aluminum, accompanied by a carbon metal body and bolstered plastic connecting elements. Because of this, the chair can also be simple to assemble, with no instruments required to place it collectively (past the standard Allen screws and Allen key that almost all furnishings kits include).

The Problem X Playseat in fact helps Logitech’s trio of present racing wheels, pedals, and shifters. However so far as we are able to inform, there’s nothing stopping you from equipping non-Logitech racing merchandise on the chair. The Problem X Playseat doesn’t function any compatibility sheets pertaining to racing wheels on Logitech’s web site.
Arguably the most important downside of the Problem X Playseat is its value, which is available in at $299.00. On this planet of sim racing, $299 is not unhealthy when a full-blown chassis and seat sometimes price $600 or extra (like Logitech’s personal Playseat Trophy Logitech G Version). But it surely’s nonetheless a excessive value, particularly for extra informal racers who will not be changing their important workplace/gaming chair with Logitech’s racing chair. It is also $70 costlier than Playseat’s personal Problem Black ActiFit variant, which seems practically an identical to the Problem X that Logitech partnered with Playseat to make.
Nonetheless, Logitech’s new racing product is its most cost-effective racing chair up to now, and it seems to supply a degree of mobility and adaptability that only a few racing setups can replicate.
