Following-up on its T1 RACE and T2 ROAD WARRIOR gaming chairs, Corsair has just announced its third take: T3 RUSH. Will you want to “RUSH” out to pick one up? That depends on whether or not you dig the unique color schemes offered here, and the standard design that seems to be seen all over the place (the others don’t have a Corsair logo, though, do they?). The photos in this post are of the gray/charcoal variant; you can see the others on the official product page.
Like the chairs before it, the T3 has a “4D” arm rest, meaning that it can be raised and lowered, put closer or further away from you (a couple of inches), as well as moved forward or back. I have been using the T2 for about a year, and have come to appreciate that feature quite a bit, since it allows for easy adjustment when you want to sit a different way, or move the chair to a different desk. It’s actually a feature I’ve come to like so much, that I wouldn’t want another chair without it.
The fabric on the T3 was chosen to be soft and breathable, making for cool gaming well into the night. That said, having used the T2 for quite a while, I can say that its material is also pretty good, and I’ve never once felt warm as a result of the chair itself (only the three test PCs benchmarking at the same time). As you’d expect, there is an included neck and back pillow that can be adjusted (or removed) for the best comfort.
Other perks of the T3 RUSH include the ability to lean back as far as 180°, in 10° increments. Of course, you can also raise and lower the seat itself, with 100 mm (~4-inches) variance.
Oddly, Corsair’s website doesn’t reveal the price of these chairs, but Newegg does, and it’s $299.99. That makes the T3 the least-expensive chair Corsair has released, as the T1 was $349, and the T2, $399. So far, we’ve only found the chairs at Newegg, and they are currently not actually available. If you want a T3, you can sign up for an auto-notify, or just keep checking your favorite etailers until it pops up.
