With a name like “Arozzi” you think first of Azzurri, Riviera or second-rate Italian wood chipper defenders – but hiding behind the Italian-looking name hides a new provider of gaming chairs, which has its headquarters in (often cold) Sweden. They are not alone: In the meantime pioneers like DXRacer have joined a multitude of different manufacturers who are struggling for gamer customers in this market segment.
Arozzi purchase advice: basics
First, of course, we want to clarify who Arozzi is at all and what sets their products apart from the competition in the marketplace. Arozzi was founded in Sweden in 2013with the goal of offering ergonomic gaming chairs in the spirit of eSports. These are made (as with all competitors) in the Far East (China) and lean heavily on seats from the motorsport. Here, too, you will find two-tone imitation leather or fabric covers, which become brightly colored eye-catchers in the booth.
In terms of price, the Arozzi models are in a lower segment than most competitors: For example, for 179 € you get an Arozzi Monza. However, this also shows in terms of features and processing, which can be assigned to the price difference and a quality difference. Two examples: The armrests are fixed on many models and cannot be adapted to the own gamer table (if they are too high, you can not drive the chair underneath) and the leather cover often casts waves (here have providers such as DXRacer or noble chairs a better precision).
Therefore: Even if the Arozzi chairs look fancy, a clear difference in quality to the above-mentioned providers is particularly evident in the low-cost models. They are solid chairs but have their weak points. Only in more expensive series such as the Arozzi Vernazza or the Arozzi Verona Pro you are in qualitatively similar climes, which also here in terms of material (eg roles & Fußkreuz) a difference.
The best Arozzi gaming chairs:
But: Where are the respective Arozzi series different? Although the company is still quite new in the market, there are already a large number of different Arozzi series, which differ in some ways. In the following, we show you exactly where these differences are and which Arozzi chair is right for you!
1.Arozzi Gaming Chair Enzo
The Arozzi Enzo is a beginner chair by Arozzi, available for less than 200 $. The armrests are not adjustable, as is the backrest with only 76cm quite scarce – large gamers will thus be unable to lean back their head. Likewise, the allowable weight of 105kg is quite low.
The Arozzi Mezzo resembles the well-known DXRacer chairs, as it features typical features such as a backrest that can be adjusted almost to the reclining position, adjustable armrests and the typical design structure of its model. With prices starting from 279 $ it is settled also in the higher field in the Arozzi comparison but can withstand also gamers with up to 130kg.
The Arozzi Menzo is in terms of ergonomics, design, equipment, and the price almost exactly the same Arozzi model, as the Arozzi Enzo described above. Only the backrest has a slightly different design, otherwise, all key data are exactly congruent.
The situation is similar with the Arozzi Mugello: this chair, in its basic form and raw data, is the same model as Enzo or Monza. In addition to a slightly different backrest, the Mugello but has adjustable armrests, and can thus be adapted to the own gamer table.
The Arozzi-Torretta series is pretty close in terms of design to the well-known gaming chairs of the market leaders AKRacing and DXRacer, even though the feature list is still a long way off. Chair and armrests are adjustable in height, as well as the backrest can be folded back to almost lying position. Other features (such as a stable aluminum foot instead of nylon or 4D armrests) but one looks in vain. The XL variant of the Torretta offers a wider seat and a higher maximum weight (140kg).
Similar to the DXRacer King series, the Arozzi Vernazza is a seat for the fat chunks among us gamers: With a maximum total load of 160kg, it is the chair in the Arozzi comparison that endures the most. However, the features are more limited compared to a DXRacer King, which makes it more likely for heavy gamers to use DXRacer King or DXRacer tanks – especially as the Vernazza is the most expensive chair in the Arozzi comparison.
The Arozzi Verona series is based on the design of the classic DXRacer F-series but comes with a minimum in comparison to it. Again, only one nylon foot is installed, and the armrests can only be adjusted in one direction (Verona Pro) or not at all (Verona). The other difference between the two Verona variants is that the Pro version can carry 130kg instead of 105kg.
While it’s always good from a market-engineering point of view when manufacturers offer lower-priced products, we are more critical of Arozzi Gaming Chair compared to other manufacturers. Sure, the chairs look fancy and are processed quite neatly on more expensive models; Nevertheless, important features are missing, and in terms of stability manufacturers such as AKRacing, DXRacer or noble chairs the nose ahead. Therefore we would use the quite small extra charge for a chair from the DXRacer product range (eg DXRacer Formula ).
