The Playseat Challenge Racing Chair was made for people who are short on space, it's

a suspended chair that is rigged with a pedal deck and a wheel holder. Framed with powder

coded steel tubing and the seat is made of Alcantara suede which feels very nice in regards

to comfort. The angle of the seat can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the straps which

can accommodate users from 4-7 feet. The wheel deck attaches to the chair with via swinging

arms which allows you to enter the rig and lock it done when in use. The deck is adjustable to

suit you best, The pedal plate is industry standard but is also removable from the sim rig.

There's no angle adjustment on the pedals, however you can extended the base for length 

adjustment. Once assembled the Playseat Challenge Racing Chair is only 49 inches tall and

29 inches wide which makes it one of the most convenient in house rigs to date.
