The Razer Iskur Gaming Chair is the first-ever gaming chair from Razer, which features an external lumbar support system. The chair also includes high-density foam cushioning, multi-layered synthetic leather, and other plush features. The unique external lumbar support system offers 26 degrees of customization to help improve gamer posture during long gaming sessions. The lumbar support system works to reduce aches and strains by supporting the full curvature of the spine, specifically the mid and lower regions where tension builds up the most. The Iskur also features high-density foam cushions for additional support and comfort, a 4D armrest system that can be customized for optimal reach, and a memory foam neck pillow for additional support at the top of the spine. The cushioning is finished with a distinctive snake scale design to create a unique look that is definitively Razer.
The all-new Razer Tomahawk Gaming Chassis is available in two distinct sizes: The Tomahawk ATX, a standard mid-tower case, and the Tomahawk Mini-ITX, a small form factor case. The chassis features full tempered glass side panels to showcase the desktop components on one side and cable management solutions on the other. The two panels open from a detachable rear hinge that gives builders the ability to build, change and perfect their system quickly. The chassis features a matte black metal frame and an all-black front panel accentuated with a luminous Razer green logo. The bottom is lined with Razer Chroma RGB lighting, which can be controlled and customized via the Razer Synapse 3 software. The Tomahawk Gaming Chassis can support up to a 360mm radiator along the front and up to two 140mm fans along the top, for more cooling options. The built-in cable management system keeps cables tucked away and out of sight to prevent the obstruction of air, maximize usable space, and create an overall cleaner aesthetic.
