No need gaming tag lah, literally can just go to Haworth buy their Soji which is a better chair in every way for like 6xx only.
Agreed, the gaming tag is just a marketing gimmick to make it sound like a “specialised” product, when in actual fact there isn’t even one function that couldn’t be found on ergo chairs. In fact it’s more like the other way round

i heard it will be a brand logo collab using embody
Heard they stopped embody production as well partly due to low popularity. Likely going to be purely for gaming chair in the future.

Lol, if it has a gamer tag, you really think this will be less than 1.5k? HM is not going to release a cheap gamer chair to lower their "status".

Close to 1.2k ( delivery is charge separately of 50 exclude GST)

how much does it cost.
I from May wait till June eager to go try the chair but in the end they still no permit yet to open showroom. Need to wait till CB phase 2 which has no confirmed timeline. So don't wana wait liao.. just bite the bullet and pray for the best.

No, I never try dxracer before. If it's a anything like secretlabs it's not my type of chair.
