Thanks to Thermaltake, we’ll be taking a quick look at their TTesports X Fit (XF100) Gaming Chair. Firstly, a big thank you to Thermaltake for sponsoring this Gaming Chair as another “office” warming gift, to celebrate the opening of our new studio and workshop.
The TTesports brand by Thermaltake is synonymous with esports and gaming. They’ve been around the gaming scene for as long as I can remember, and believe me … that’s a long time.

And nothing is more important than having a comfortable chair to sit on, especially when you’ll be gaming for several hours. Thermaltake knows this … and to cater for the most demanding of gamers, they’ve been producing gaming chairs with comfort in mind for quite a long time. You can tell … just take a look at their catalogue of gaming chairs. They currently have the most choices of gaming chairs available on the market.

The X Fit Gaming chair features a unique carbon style faux leather design, that gives it a real luxury feel. Its streamlined gaming aesthetics offers true ergonomic function as well as comfort. Can this be one of the most luxurious gaming chair on the market?
The X FIT Series professional gaming chair comes with an exclusive carbon style faux leather design for those that desire ultimate luxury mixed with streamlined gaming aesthetics and true ergonomic form with maximum function; and in doing so, creates a perfect balance between desired gaming comfort and expected performance during the most intense gaming sessions. With anti-fatigue design and the highest quality of construction materials, the chair offers maximum customisation to suit both your gaming and comfort needs.
Ergonomic & Durable Design
For prolonged periods of sitting, it is important that it be done comfortably with good posture. The National Institute of Health recommends choosing a chair with all the necessary adjustments to support proper posture. This includes:
• Chair with casters and five-point base
• Seat rest with dense foam padding
• Backrest with lumbar support
• Armrest with adjustable height and width
• Seat height hydraulic adjustment
• Chair recline and tilt function
Exclusive Carbon Style Design for Ultimate Luxury
High-quality faux leather for enhanced durability, breathability and splash resistance to accidental spills. Use of PVC provides enhanced durability than that of traditional PU materials and is easier to maintain.
4D Adjustable Armrest
4 directional height, width and 4-direction adjustable for optimal support of the forearm to relieve wrist pressure and muscle strain.
Allows for effortless adjustment of back angle up to 160 degrees for optimal sitting position during general and gaming use.
Z Support Multi Function Tilt Mechanism with Locking System
Provides adjustable tilt for increasing and decreasing tension by matching the body weight of the user for effortless, secure and sturdy rocking, without putting fatigue on muscles.
Powerful Class-4 Gas Piston
Gives easy height adjustment of the seat for optimal ergonomic support for both posture and back stress prevention. User can adjust height for optimal support based on environment.
Sturdy 5 Star Aluminium Base
By using a premium grade aluminium base which is designed to support a max load of 120kg, the chair is more durable and long-lasting compared to it’s nylon based counterpart. With internal structured design and a 70cm (25”) width it is also more stable and solid.
Large 3” Caster Wheels
Use of large 3” caster wheels provide enhanced base support whilst in use. Wider wheel base also provides quieter operation and further adds to the stability of the chair with even greater freedom of movement.

Box and Packaging
The whole package is much heavy than I initially thought. So my advice is …. be very careful when lifting the box. Again, like most gaming chairs there are 3 main sections – The back rest, the seat and the 5 spoke base.
Features and Adjustments
Like most gaming chairs, there are levers that adjust the angle, height and back rest of the chair. The 4D arm-rest is fully adjustable too. The heavy-duty 3″ caster wheels are solid and real sturdy, and the whole chair can support up to 120 kgs.
Verdict and Conclusion
Assembling the Thermaltake Ttesports X Fit took a little longer than I expected (around 25-30 mins), but it was well worth it. You can literally feel the quality of the chair as you start building it. The weight of each component has a solid feel to it, from the Aluminium base and heavy-duty caster wheels all the way to the seat and back rest.
The unique carbon style faux leather design gives it a real luxury feel, and looks awesome. Even the neck and back cushions use high quality faux leather. Nice!
The chair can support a maximum load of up to 120 kgs, and seat back can recline to 160 degrees, which is perfect for relaxing after a heavy gaming session.
The X Fit comes in 4 colours. Red, Blue, Green and Black (reviewed here). If you want a gaming chair that you want to use in the office, then the black version is perfect. It doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb and should match most office furniture.
