Logitech has collaborated with Playseat to release the Playseat Challenge X – Logitech G Edition, a folding racing cockpit chair designed for gaming enthusiasts. While the Logitech version closely resembles the non-collab Playseat Challenge Black Actifit, it comes with added features such as a gear shift mount and a tilting pedal mount. The chair also boasts an extra handle for easy adjustment and sports the iconic Logitech G logo and blue-on-black color scheme. Logitech highlights its compatibility with the Logitech G racing wheel and Logitech G Driving Force Shifter, as well as other wheels, pedals, and shifters available in the market.
About the chair itself, it includes poles at the bottom to hold the pedals securely, with the ability to adjust them to fit different leg lengths. The seat of the Playseat Challenge X – Logitech G Edition offers six positions that provide a more immersive racing experience, mimicking the sensation of sitting in a car. Weighing only 26 pounds, the chair is lightweight and foldable, making it convenient for storage when not in use. It could be an appealing option for racing simulation enthusiasts who prefer a more compact and affordable cockpit compared to other bulkier alternatives.
In addition to its gaming functionality, the Playseat Challenge X – Logitech G Edition can also serve as a comfortable guest chair when needed. Its adjustable rigidity and breathable mesh make it ergonomically suitable for various body types. However, users are advised not to push the chair too far back, as it may hinder accessibility. Once the guests have left, gamers can easily mount their racing wheel and pedals again, immersing themselves in their virtual racing adventures. The Playseat Challenge X – Logitech G Edition is available for purchase on Amazon.
