Corsair has added a new throne to its gaming chair range. The Corsair T3 Rush is the new piece of gaming furniture and it looks like a traditionally styled but (motor-) sporty office chair. It features the usual Corsair gaming chair niceties like adjustable 4D armrests and seat back. However, this time around, Corsair has upholstered a gaming chair with soft breathable fabric - which might be a bonus depending upon preference or the climate where you live in the world.
Corsair says that the new T3 Rush gaming chair is constructed using an "immensely durable solid steel frame". Padding this out is a selection of foam and memory foam in the seat, back, lumbar and neck pillows. Using fabric upholstery for the first time (neck and lumbar cushions are said to be 'microfibre') means that the chair will "retain minimal heat for cool and comfortable gaming all day and night".
As usual the Corsair T3 Rush is highly adjustable. The 4D armrests can be adjusted in any direction, while the seat back can go from fully upright to flat - 90 to 180° reclining range. This range is augmented with 10° of lockable seat tilt. Another useful adjustment is of 100mm in seat height - for this Corsair uses a class 4 gas-lift mechanism. The Corsair T3 Rush should be OK to roll on most living space surfaces with its 5x 65mm heavy-duty casters.
In an email to HEXUS, Corsair said that the new T3 Rush gaming chair is available immediately but that wasn't the case at the time of writing, and I found that the product video had been taken down for some reason (but the assembly guide remained). Checking the US site, it wasn't listed at all…
When it does become available, and it should be shortly, the Corsair T3 Rush gaming chair will be available in three colours; charcoal, charcoal/grey, and white/grey. Buyers get a two year warranty. Nosing around a bit, I spotted the chair for pre-order in Holland for €279.
