From Ficmax, this is an upgraded version of their previous chairs but with far more features. This is the Ficmax Ergonomic Big and Tall Racing Style PU Leather Gaming Chair with Lumbar Massage Support and Retractible Footrest. This is an all-in-one working versatile chair, whether you’re working, reading, gaming or trying to rest. It’s not common for people to use these chairs as their own personal beds but some do. It comes with a sleek blue and black design and a slide out comfortable footrest which is convenient and helps promote healthy blood flow to reduce the chance of blood clots in the legs.
This chair also includes a USB charged electric massager inside, so it doubles as a gaming chair and a massage chair in one. Everyone could use a little massage after a stressful game or tough day at work to cool down. The overall framing and strength of the chair is relatively solid as well, including a frame that was built to support 300 pounds of maximum weight. It’s explosion proof and gas spring powered. There’s also a nice warranty that comes with the chair that we were pleased with. You can get your money back for any reason in a time slot of 30 days.
The overall design of this chair looks like something you’d see at a gaming event. You know those fancy chairs they usually have at gaming conventions or eSports arenas? They’re designed for maximum comfort to help players relax and remain focused. This chair includes a lumbar support pillow and a neck pillow with the Ficmax logo printed on them. There’s an additional Ficmax logo printed on the middle of the chair right below the headrest pillow. The base of the chair is a little wide for accommodation and the color scheme is a pretty common scheme we see all the time, slate black and striking blue.
Ficmax has gone out of their way to make sure that these chairs come spring-loaded with the maximum durability possible. It starts with the metal frame that comes with high security. The frame of this chair is a gas spring powered explosion proof frame that’s smooth and doesn’t make noise when in action. The castors that help make up the frame are very heavy duty and very stable. The chair overall supports a maximum weight of 300 pounds and this is in any of the four optimal positions you can put the chair in.
The most important part of any working or gaming chair is that you’re comfortable? We personally loved the overall comfort of the chair and were impressed with the thickness of the soft padding. On the base of the chair, there’s a very thick level of padding for your resting area and your legs. This helps tremendously reduce the chance of blood clots and helps promote blood flow to the body. The padded footrest extends to rest your feet as well. Finally, there’s the standard lumbar and head-rest cushion pillow that we loved. These are very comfortable to lay your head back on and won’t strain your neck.
Features of the Ficmax Ergonomic Gaming Chair 2018
Massager Included – If you have a USB port, then you can turn on the USB powered electric massager built into the chair. This helps alleviate stress and make the chair more relaxing for you. The massager itself isn’t too harsh and it isn’t too soft, we found that is somewhere in the medium range which was optimum for us.
High Density Material – The PU leather included on the exterior of the chair was really easy to clean and was pretty resistant to spills. We didn’t have any issues with washing it or cleaning any kind of mess off of it. It’s also fade resistant as well, which is a pretty big problem for the hardcore game that will get every day use out of the chair. Also, the sponge inside of the chair is high density and has strong permeability, which means that it will bounce back to its original state after being used.
Sturdy Frame – A great gaming chair needs to ensure that it has a high maximum capacity. This chair can easily support up to 300 pounds without any issues or putting pressure on the frame. The frame of this chair is built with a high-quality metal frame with a very heavy base.
Multifunctional – The chair comes at a standard 360-degree swivel and it has 4 different optimal resting positions depending on what you’re doing. Whether you’re resting, reading, gaming or working, you can change your resting position from 90 degrees to 180 degrees with swift movement.
Killer Warranty – If you have any problems with this product within the 30-day purchase window, you can return this product at absolutely no cost to you. You can have it completely replaced or you can simply get your money back.

FAQ Frequently Asked Question
Q: How do I get the massage unit to work?
A: There’s a USB plug near the lumbar support port. For this to work, all you have to do is plug in the USB cord and then simply set the switch on the unit to “-“. If you want to turn it off, simply set the switch to “o”. However, if you want a stronger massage, set the switch to “=”.
Q: Are tools included for assembly?
A: Absolutely. We got all the tools and instructions necessary to build this chair. The assembly was relatively quick and we didn’t have any issues with it.
Q: Does this chair make any noise when swiveling, tilting or moving?
A: Not that we’ve found. We’ve tried every angle and every possible movement to see if it’s noisy and we haven’t heard a peep out of it.
Q: Can you sit on the footrest?
A: No, this isn’t recommended. The footrest while durable, cannot support the full body weight of another person, only the base of the chair supports a maximum weight of 300 pounds.
This chair is a relatively budget friendly option for people not willing to spend hundreds of dollars on some top-notch chair that doesn’t offer much more in terms of comfort in our opinion. The Ficmax Ergonomic Big and Tall Racing Style PU Leather Gaming Chair with Lumbar Massage Support and Retractible Footrest is a chair by a company not well known at the moment but it offers superior comfort for the price. The massager is a great finishing touch and not something we see in a lot of gaming chairs built like this. The optimal locking positions for tilting back are a nice touch and the padding is so soft. Overall, this is an amazing chair and we know you’re going to love it.
