Today, Razer’s launching its first gaming chair, the $500 black-and-green Iskur. And don’t worry, it has “For Gamers. By Gamers.” stitched directly onto the front of the chair’s seat, followed by a trademark symbol, in case you get confused.

The Iskur’s key feature is its external lumbar support cushion, which hangs off the lower half of the chair’s adjustable backrest and has 26 degrees of customization. It’s meant to promote healthy spine posture during long gaming sessions, and Razer claims it does a better job of it than existing support pillow or internal cushion solutions. The cushion also boasts a snake scale design, because Razer.

The snakeskin look carries over to the seat cushion, and both it and the lumbar cushion use high-density foam. There’s also a memory foam neck pillow further up the chair and “4D armrests” at the chair’s side. We weren’t able to confirm if time travel is a confirmed feature here, but we do know that you can raise, lower and turn the armrests to your heart’s content.

So, what we’re essentially seeing here is the same bucket-seat style racing chair design common to gamer setups but with a more adjustable cushion design for your lower back. But if you think that means sacrifices elsewhere, don’t worry. The chair itself is rated to support 300 pounds and held up for 120,000 swivels and 300,000 backrest adjustments in Razer’s internal testing.

The Iskur is available now at Razer’s website for $499.

    It was only a matter of time before Razer took this on and I'm glad to see it as I do like and own a lot of their gear. I'm in the market for a chair as well, but this is a bit more than I really would like to pay seeing I can get a Secret Lab Omega in the specific colors I want for ~ $150 USD less. Then again, from the looks of it, this chair would seem to compare more to the Titan and then it's pretty close. I just wish they had the dimensions of the chair available seeing they aren't anywhere to be found.

    Probably £500+ here in the UK. Would I pay that for a chair, from a company that doesn't have a great reputation for quality and durability? No.

    To be fair though, I wouldn't buy any of these so-called 'gamer' chairs as I've got a Herman-Miller Aeron, under warranty until August 2030.
