In 2017 Corsair released the T1 Rush, its first own gaming chair. In 2018 the T2 Rush followed, and in 2019 the T3 Rush will also be available, another new model from Corsair.
In contrast to the two previous gaming chairs from Corsair, the T3 Rush uses a fabric cover instead of imitation leather. In line with this, the company is advertising with a particularly low heat generation: this should not be a problem with the T3 Rush. Another special feature is the high-quality castors – apart from these, Corsair offers the usual complete package of numerous adjustment options and 4D armrests.
The T3 Rush costs 280 Euros to start with and is therefore the cheapest gaming chair currently available from Corsair: the T1 costs 300 Euros, the T2 340 Euros. In the meantime, the real prices are mostly somewhat lower than recommended by Corsair.
With the T2 Rush one has thereby the choice between the color variants Charcoal, Charcoal/Gray and Gray/White. At the moment the one for € 272.18, € 275.99 or € 279.00 is available in stores. The following test will show how the gaming chair performs in practice.

Scope of Delivery and Construction
Like other gaming chairs, the T3 Rush is supplied in individual parts. The cardboard box contains the seat and backrest upholstery as well as all other necessary accessories such as the base, the necessary screws and an Allen key. As additional extras, Corsair supplies a neck and lordosis cushion as well as covers for the side hinges.
The construction of the T3 Rush is very simple: The armrests are already screwed to the seat upholstery at the factory and therefore no longer have to be attached themselves. For mounting, the rocker mechanism must be screwed to the underside of the seat cushion and then the backrest fastened. The seat is then placed on the floor cross, which is fitted with the castors and the gas spring.
The construction of the gaming chair goes quickly by hand and should be finished in about half an hour. If you’re a couple or if you already know how to assemble it, it’s even faster.
