The X Comfort Air chair comes courtesy of Thermaltake's Tt eSports sub-brand, so the chair appears to be aimed at competitive gamers who need to be seated comfortably for many hours at a time when battling rivals in games such as Dota 2 and Overwatch.

While many are still expecting an influx of RGB gaming chairs, Thermaltake is heading in a different direction all together. Using state-of-the-art air-cooling design tech with optimized aerodynamics, gaming enthusiasts can freely adjust their cooling with an easy to access 3-button controller for desired air cooling performance.

Built into a 'unique wind blocker frame [.] specially created to direct greater volumes of airflow towards the middle section of the blade' the four 60mm fans push air through to the seat of the chair with the claim of cutting the heat down by up to 1.5ºC on the fans' maximum speed setting. All this, coupled with a true ergonomic form and maximum function design, provides the X COMFORT AIR with the flawless balance between desired gaming comfort and expected performance during the most intense gaming sessions. According to Thermaltake, these four 60mm five-blade fans can reduce temperatures by 0.6°C to 1.5°C.

More information on the X Comfort Air is available on the official website, where it is set at a USA recommended retail price of $499.99 (around £382 excluding taxes).

Thermaltake has a new gaming chair that begs for a cross promotion with Preparation-H, because like that butt cream, its new X Comfort Air aims to rid you of that burning sensation on your backside.

The frame of the chair is made from steel and covered with dense foam padding, and wrapped in faux leather and breathable mesh. It naturally has other features one often finds on gaming chairs, including a backrest, adjustable armrests, and the ability to recline and tilt.
