In the fall of 2013, a group of gamers created KILLABEE. When they started KILLABEE they had one question in mind, “Can we build a gaming chair to cure back pain?” Their ambitious ergonomic gaming chairs include the KILLABEE Racer Gaming Chair for big and tall gamers.

The instructions were easy to follow. Like most gaming chairs, the KILLABEE Racer was fairly easy to assemble, provided you follow the included instructions.
It really does look and feel like a chair in a race car, except higher. Though I’m not typically a fan of gaming chairs with racing stripes, the KILLABEE Racer doesn’t look bad.
I’m a mere 5’1” tall, so I couldn’t fully appreciate this chair made specifically for “thicc” and tall gamers. Therefore, I will obviously be reviewing this gaming chair from the perspective of someone who is height adjacent.
The memory foam seat and 3D backrest were comfortable. The recline and height adjustment was generous. And yes, I did swing my feet a little bit. It also has an easy-to-access tilt lock. But, because of my short torso, the lumbar pillow was more of an annoyance than support. Luckily, I could just remove it. The KILLABEE also has a nice rocking function.
The steel frame felt sturdy enough, but I don’t weigh enough to really put its load-bearing to the test. The chair has a PU leather cover which is incredibly loud with every move you make. I covered the chair with a throw blanket and that alleviated most of the “plastic” noise. Aside from the squeaky, leather noise, I felt very comfortable working from this chair.
The KILLABEE Racer Gaming Chair has great potential. It seems very well made. However, I think this chair would be much better with a breathable cloth fabric cover. A breathable cloth fabric would eliminate the squeaky leather sounds. It’d also be great for gamers who sweat a lot during long, intense gaming sessions.
Other than that, the KILLABEE Racer Gaming Chair is an honest choice that could really be beneficial to bigger gamers.
