Features Highlight 

One thing that makes the Dowinx such a popular choice is that it is equipped with possibly all the functions you'll ever need for a massage gaming chair.

Swivel, Recline, Rocks

From a 360° swivel function to its 90°-180° reclining feature, this massage office chair has it all.

In particular, we like how the full length backrest can be reclined almost fully. This way, can lie down completely strain free for a quick power nap should there be a need to.

On top of that, it has a 20° controllable rocking ability. Not many models have this function if you have read our massage office chair reviews, so this is definitely one huge selling point for the Dowinx.

Dowinx pu wheels

There are 5 smooth racing caster wheels incorporated for ease of mobility. 

It is worthy to note that there has been an upgrade done for these, with the XL PU caster wheels now being more durable and have the ability to  glide over most surfaces smoothly without scratching the floor. 

Speaking of upgrade, the armrests have gone through an overhaul too.

They now adopt a linkage armrest design whereby a new metal internal mechanism is incorporated for greater durability. 

It is even more easier to personalize support for your elbow and wrist now with these new Act-In-Chain armrests.

Massage Lumbar Pillow & Retractable Footrests

Being a massage office chair, Dowinx's massage function comes in the form of a USB cable power supply pillow massager.

It provides massages to the lumbar region to effectively relieve your waist fatigue, making it one of the best office chair for lower back pain.

What's good with such a design is that it can be used as an office chair massage pad on any other chairs.

The USB adaptability means it is not limited as just an office chair back massager, but you can use it in the car as well. You can plug it into any USB port, be it computer, power switch, car or even power bank. 

Dowinx footrest

Besides lumbar pillow, a headrest pillow is also provided.

There is also a retractable footrest, which provides a great way to stretch your legs out.  

We like that it is heavily padded, so that you get maximum comfort as you kick back and relieve the tension on your legs and knees.

Design & Construction 

Let's now look at the design and construction of the chair.

As you can tell, the Dowinx adopts the standard racing-style design that is the norm of gaming chairs. 

Dowinx metal frame

Its winged back provides multi-point body contact to share the pressure, thereby saving your spine and lumbar with its ergonomic back and massage support.

With the wide range of mobility for the backrest, it can really help with your posture.

We particularly like how the upgrade has made the side wings frame thinner but it is filled with more soft filling now.

This way, you can lean your legs more comfortably in the bucket seat design. Both gamers and office workers will benefit from such an ergonomic design, we kid you not. 

In terms of construction, the alloy frame is covered in quality hand sewing PU leather with two aspects worth mentioning. The first being - the Commercial Class-3 Gas Lift utilised which is an upgraded LANT gas cylinder.

Each Dowinx chair features this class 3 heavy duty KGS gas pistons - they are the best in class in terms of consistency, stability and safety. You can ensure the use age of the chair and being SGS-certified, you can absolutely sit in it with peace of mind.

Dowinx seat cushion

The second thing will be its seat cushion. This one here uses a 5 inches high quality, high density thick rubber foam that gives a lot of cushioning. 

It is not too soft, nor does it feel too rock hard so the user will have immaculate comfort and great support to . 

Customer Service & Warranty Period

Installation wise, a detail instruction manual is included with 24/7 customer service available to assist you with any questions.

Users have reported that they find customer service extremely helpful and responsive. They answer any queries promptly, be it inn regards to installation or any other problems as well as replacing faulty/defective parts.

Speaking of which, there is a one-month replacement service with 1 year warranty on parts quality.

Things to Note

There is just one thing to keep in mind, and that is the footrest does not extend too far out.

If you're more than 6 feet, expect your calves/knees to be on the footrest instead of your legs. Not a deal breaker, but something to keep in mind.
