The Nitro Concepts S300 gaming chair is ergonomically designed gaming and office chair looks and sounds like it is right out of the cockpit of the most technologically advanced fighter jet in the world. But is this chair built to military grade standards and will it reflect the promise that its name suggests?
This Nitro gaming chair is a very sleek looking and nicely designed chair that will probably appeal to the masses. While the chair comes in a standard black design, we personally like the other colors offered. It is sold in the following color schemes: red/black; green/black; yellow/black; orange/black; purple/black; and white/black. There is even a special SL Benfica edition for you, soccer fans out there.
So, what’s so different about this Nitro Concepts S300 gaming chair that sets it apart from its peers, if anything? What makes it worth its fairly hefty price of $279? We literally dove into the chair to find out what this chair has to offer and whether it rates being put on your short list of chairs to purchase.
The Nitro S300 design is definitely on display and it kind of gets in your face; simply put, it stands out in a crowd which is a good thing. The design appears very extravagant and is something that the chair prior to the S300 wasn’t.
While the other designs were good, they just didn’t have that flash that the S300 has. The brilliant red edges on the red chair (if you were to choose red) are a perfect highlight and compliments the chair very nicely. We also like the logo placement on the chair, as it stands out no matter what angle you’re looking at the chair from.
Aside from being highly adjustable, we were concerned that some features on the Nitro Concepts S300 gaming chair were going to take a dip once we started to assess the chair’s durability. But to our surprise, this is an absolute no, as the chair is made with a high-quality piston base and solid feeling wheels.
The Nitro gaming chair is made with a solid steel frame and supports an individual weighing up to 297 pounds, so for most people, there is no need to worry on whether you are pushing the limit or need to skip a lunch. If you are really big or exceedingly tall, you may want to check out our reviews on big and tall gaming chairs (big and tall chair buyer’s guide).
The base consists of five pedestal legs, each with double wheels that are sturdy and won’t damage your floor. In our opinion, the durability is a solid 10 out of 10 with this chair.

Features of the Nitro Concepts S300 gaming chair
Breathable fabric – While we know that fabric isn’t the most durable type of material for a chair’s seating surfaces, especially for accident prone people, this may be one of the few exceptions. Unlike those synthetic leather chairs that are usually hard or might cause you to sweat, the fabric material used in the production of this Nitro S300 gaming chair makes for a comfortable resting surface that is very gentle to the touch.
We had no complaints with the fabric, and it seems like the quality is quite good. For those concerned about staining the chair, buy an inexpensive fabric protector to spray on the seating surfaces.
German engineering – One of the great things we love about the Nitro gaming chair is that Nitro Concepts is apparently known for using German engineering practices when designing and crafting a chair. It’s such a selling point to have German engineering, with its precision and standards, behind your product that even automobile makers use it in their commercials to help sell products.
Let’s face it, German engineering is strong, durable and superior, so you can never go wrong with it.
Ergonomic design – The chair is equipped with a durable gas lift piston system which allows a height adjustment from 19 to 24 inches to accommodate people of various sizes. In addition, the backrest can be adjusted from an upright angle of 90 degrees all the way back to 135 degrees, and the entire chair can be tilted by a maximum of 14 degrees thanks to the rocker mechanism.
With this sort of customization, any user should be able to find the sweet spot for the optimal gaming or office work position – or napping.
Adjustable armrests – Unlike many chairs in the gaming niche, the S300 comes with two adjustable “3D” armrests that complement the rest of the chair’s great customization and adaptability traits. The armrests can be easily adjusted in height as well as width (right or left), and the angle of armrests can even be tilted. The flexibility that these armrests provide are a nice touch and welcome feature.
Detachable pillows – To add to the comfort level of Nitro S300 gaming chair, it comes with two detachable pillows; one for the head and one for the lumbar area of the lower back. These pillows are fantastic for providing the necessary comfort needed when gaming or napping. The lumbar cushion supports the back to keep the spine in perfect alignment while the head pillow offers that special touch of class, especially after a tough day at the office.
Sporty Design – We love the design of this chair because it’s simple, but they’ve somehow crafted it to stand out quite well compared to the competition. Regardless of the color option, it exudes that racing/fighter jet style that we have come to love in our gaming chairs. Our favorite color is red, but the other colors are also quite appealing.
High-quality material – The fabric cover of this Nitro gaming chair is really soft but not to the point where it compromises durability. We particularly enjoyed the look of the chair’s cover material, and it felt even better to sit on it.
The surface fabric is breathable, which means that the pores of the material are open, so you won’t sweat. This feature also enables the foam padding to breathe and return to its original shape when you get up out of the chair. The seating experience overall is very enjoyable, and it’s definitely something we can stand behind 100% based upon the comments of our approved seating testers.
