Thank you for your purchase and welcome to the AKRacing family.

You are only a few minutes away from enjoying comfortable, ergonomic gaming or work. Let’s start by putting together your AKRacing chair. We recommend that you follow the step-by-step assembly instructions and safety recommendations provided in this manual.

A few things to note:

  • Chair assembly can be completed by one person, but helping hands will make it faster and more fun!
  • Your chair comes with all the tools necessary for assembly, including the parts, hex keys and white gloves. Should anything be missing, please contact us.
  • If you have any questions during the assembly process, check out our assembly video for help and guidance.

A – Wheelbase
B – Casters
C – Upper side covers
D – Lower side cover
E – Mechanism
F – Backrest
G – Seat with pre-installed armrests
H – Gas lift cover
J – Hydraulic gas lift
K – Small Allen wrench (hex key)
L – Large Allen wrench (hex key)
M – Side cover screws
N – Butterfly clip

Begin the assembly by taking the chair backrest (F) out of the box and remove the protective plastic. Next, remove the pre-installed backrest 5mm bolts using the large hex key (L) on the right side of the backrest.

Repeat step 1 on the left side of the chair. Save the bolts.

Take the chair seat out of the box and remove the protective plastic. Next, remove the protective foam from the metal side brackets.

Align the backrest with the bracket on the left side of the chair.

Attach the backrest using the 5mm screws you saved in step 1 and large hex key (L), by screwing them in loosely.

For safety reasons, avoid pulling the recline lever on the right side until the backrest is securely installed.
Align the backrest with the bracket on the right side of the chair. Attach the backrest
using the 5mm screws you saved in step 2 and large hex key, and tighten the screws on the left and the right side at this point.

Using the small hex key (K) and side cover screws, mount the lower (D) and upper ( C ) side covers on the left side of the chair.

Using the small hex key (K) and side cover screws, mount the remaining upper ( C ) side cover on the right side of the chair.

Time to mount the mechanism (E) to the seat. Start by removing the preinstalled screws from the bottom of the seat using the large hex key (L) and save them.

Depending on the chair model you own, you’ll find the advanced mechanism (left) or standard mechanism (right) in the box.
Make sure the mechanism is being installed facing the front of the seat: the height adjustment lever should be on the left side and the large round knob to adjust the rocking tension is always towards the front of the chair.
Align the mechanism with the holes in the seat and use the screws you saved in step 9 to securely mount it.

Remove the red cap from the hydraulic gas lift (J) (if any) and put the gas lift cover (H) over the gas lift. Insert the gas lift into the mechanism.

Place the wheelbase (A) upside down and insert the casters (B).

Lift the wheelbase and insert the hydraulic gas lift into the hole in the wheelbase. Carefully tilt the chair upwards while holding the wheelbase and position it upright. Assembly complete!

Now let’s get to know your new AKRacing chair and adjust it to achieve maximum comfort.

Let’s start by installing headrest and lumbar support pillows.

If you are the owner of an AKRacing chair that has openings in the backrest, you have 2 ways to attach the headrest pillows: over the top of the backrest, so it sits higher, or through the openings and securing the elastic with the provided plastic butterfly clip (N), so the pillow sits lower.

To attach the lumbar pillow, pull the lower elastic belts between the seat and backrest of the chair, and the upper elastic belts through the openings in the backrest, and clip them together in the back of the chair.

If you are the owner of an AKRacing chair that does not have openings in the backrest, you should attach the headrest pillow over the top of the backrest. To attach the lumbar pillow, pull the lower elastic belts between the seat and backrest of the chair, and the upper elastic belts over the shoulders of the backrest. Criss-cross them in the back and clip together.

You can adjust the height of the chair using the height adjustment lever on the right side of the chair.

You can adjust the position of chair armrests (or remove them completely by unscrewing them from the seat). Depending on the chair model you own, it comes with 3D or 4D armrests, meaning they are adjustable in 3 or 4 directions respectively.

3D armrests move up & down (push the button on the outside of the armrests), back and forth (apply pressure) and rotate to the sides.
4D armrests move up & down (push the button on the outside of the armrests), back and forth (apply pressure), rotate to the sides and slide in & out (push the button on the inside of the armrests).

Time to adjust the position of the seat and backrest.
Depending on the chair model you own, it comes with either adjustable tension rocking function (standard mechanism) or Rock It & Lock It function (advanced mechanism).

To enable the adjustable tension rocking function, pull the height adjustment lever on the right side of the chair out. Turn the knob underneath the seat clockwise to loosen the rocking tension of the chair, and anti-clockwise to tighten it. To prevent the chair from rocking, simply push the height adjustment lever inwards.

To enable the Rock It & Lock It function, turn the lever on the left side of the chair up. Turn the knob underneath the seat clockwise to loosen the rocking tension of the chair, and anti-clockwise to tighten it. To prevent the chair from rocking, simply turn the lever down.

All AKRacing chairs come with a full 180 degrees recline. Pull the recline lever on the right side of the chair and lean back slowly until desired angle is achieved. Always lock the rocking or Rock It & Lock It function before using the 180 degrees recline for safety reasons.
