Cougar’s Latest Gaming Chair Hotrod is Inspired by Motorsports, Promises Extreme Gaming Performance

Cougar Hotrod

Cougar has announced the launch of its latest extreme gaming performance chair called Hotrod which is engineered for maximum comfort, control, and precision. Apart from its basic version, a special premium version called Hotrod Royal is also part of the lineup which is aimed at players looking for a more premium finish for their gaming chair. Cougar has taken inspiration for Hotrod from motorsports because just like a racing seat, a gaming chair has to ensure that the player remains comfortable during performance under pressure.

Cougar Hotrod draws inspiration from the sleek, lightweight design and high-performance features of motorsports and it is engineered to fit the body precisely for maximum comfort and control to deliver a fusion of style, comfort, and performance at the same time. It features synthetic PA fiberglass-reinforced plastic which is designed to give players the right amount of flex and resistance and is built to withstand the stress of sudden movements and keep the player comfortable and supported through every sharp turn.

Apart from performance, the Hotrod also keeps the comfort level in check with its multi-density cushion of the backrest that provides ultimate comfort, and it adapts to your body to provide support when you need it. The integrated height-adjusted head cushion is there to provide additional support and comfort for your neck and head during long and intense gaming sessions. The body-embracing design of Cougar Hotrod features a multi-zone backrest anchored to a hard-external FRP shell that provides optimum support for your body where you need it.

Key features of the Cougar Hotrod include:

  • Days of Thunder – The Hotrod features a unique shell made of PA Fiberglass-Reinforced Plastic. This material is strong, lightweight, and flexible, and is designed to withstand the stress of sudden movements and maintain its shape, ensuring that you remain comfortable and supported through every sharp turn.
  • Double Impact – An ergonomically engineered head cushion to prevent whiplash from sudden stops and a lumbar cushion fixed to height-adjustable suspension rails provide ultimate comfort and support for your neck, head, and lumbar region, eliminating the risk of injury, tension, and fatigue.
  • Rolling Start – In motorsports, “rolling resistance” is a frictional force that opposes motion when an object rolls on a surface. A sleeve on the caster’s spoke reduces this resistance as well as eliminating noise, allowing the Hotrod to glide across any surface as effortlessly as it’s quiet.
  • Put Skin In The Game – The Hotrod is upholstered in premium Hyper-Dura leatherette, 12 times more resistant to wear and tear when compared to regular coverings.
  • Adjustable Design
    1. 150º Reclining: Hotrod allows you to recline from 90º to 150º. Stay upright for work or play and lie down when you need to rest.
    2. Piston Lift Height Adjustment: Premium quality piston lift lets you easily adjust the Hotrod’s height.
    3. RocX!: Adjusting the tilt tension lets your body recline and rock comfortably within a small angle range at just the right amount of pressure. Lock in your perfect position!
  • 3D Adjustable Armrest – The 3D armrests’ flexibility ensures that you can find the perfect position to support your arms and maintain a comfortable posture.
  • Class 4 Gas Lift Cylinder – The gas lift cylinder is the core of the Hotrod’s functionality. Equipped with a Class 4 Gas Lift Cylinder for safety, reliability, and smooth operation, the Hotrod is in a class of its own.

The Hotrod Royal is a premium version of the normal Hotrod, and it is also available now. It features gold stitching and imitation suede upholstery that increases the luxurious look and feel of the chair. It is a more finely tuned version as it offers feature upgrades such as 4D armrests, 3-inch silent chair wheels, and an advanced multi-tilt mechanism. The Cougar Hotrod is available in both Orange and Black while Hotrod Royal is only available in Gold. The Cougar Hotrod gaming chair will set you back $300 and the Cougar Hotrod Royal’s retail price is set at $350.
