Razer’s CES 2024 showcase, as we’ve come to expect from the brand, was full of welcome upgrades to its existing product line along with something trying to push the gaming accessory market further when it comes to enhancing our gaming experience. Amongst other announced products, we got a Razer Iskur V2 gaming chair which is available to purchase right now for $649.99, and something all altogether more unusual in the conceptual product, Project Esther. The world’s first haptic gaming cushion, yes that’s a haptic feedback seating device — we are edging closer to the Ready Player One reality. And yes that was a totally intentional pun. Alas, it’s purely conceptual at this stage so let’s look at the very real and very much available to buy Razer Iskur V2 first.

The Razur Iskur is one of the best gaming chairs you can buy, and the V2 looks to take that to the next level

The Razer Iskur V2, unveiled today at CES 2024 aims to be a leap forward in gaming comfort and lumbar support. We already reviewed and loved the Razer Iskur, so this launch has more than piqued our interest. The chair comes in 3 iterations, Black leather, Black and Green leather and a fabric finish.

The main focus of the Iskur V2 is its ‘6D adjustable and adaptive lumbar support system’, a feature completely unique to this chair. This cutting-edge system adapts to the natural curvature of your spine, ensuring real-time adjustments based on your body’s weight and posture. The integrated lumbar curve adjustments, including protrusion and height tuning, allow for an entirely personalized fit, catering to individual preferences like no chair before it. A bold claim, and for $649.99 you’re certainly paying for the best in chair development. Not unike a good mattress, something you sit on for many hours a day should be the best you can get if you can afford it and the Iskur already set the bar incredibly high. The V2 is an exciting update to the range and we can’t wait to try it out.
