Vertagear – A brand under which gamers and engineers create products for the entire gaming community. Externally, this is particularly well demonstrated by the numerous collaborations with ESports teams and other gaming brands. The focus here is on design, comfort, functionality and quality, true to the motto: “Ingenuity never ends and neither do we”.
To test this, we took a closer look at the SL5000SE and want to present our findings in this post. The SL5000SE is a special edition from the SL5000 series, which catches the eye with its bold midnight blue colors paired with yellow stitching. The shape of the gaming chair is again classically based on racing chairs. Find out now how well the gaming chair from Vertagear’s S-Line does in everyday gaming.

Scope of delivery & assembly
Delivered the gaming chair in a 28 kg and very large brown cardboard box. From the outside, the company logo and the product name of the chair were lifted in black. After opening the box, you can take a first look at the individual elements. Here everything was packed and secured in a classic way with plastic wrap and plastic foam. The elements most susceptible to damage, such as the armrests, the base and the hinges on the seat for the backrest, have been specially provided for. Once all the plastic has been removed, the assembly process continues in no time.
For the assembly, Vertagear provides assembly instructions and assembly material consisting of 4 slightly larger screws and an Allen wrench with handle – after assembly, this can be used for other setups. The four screws supplied are used to attach the backrest to the seat. The screws needed for the tilting mechanism are already pre-assembled on the underside of the seat, so these must be loosened to attach the tilting mechanism. The armrests are also pre-assembled directly on the seat, which saves a lot of additional time.
The next step is to mount the individual rollers to the base. Here, the usual slide-in mechanism is used to recall. After a few seconds, the base stands on the ground together with the rollers. Now, after removing the red safety cap, the gas spring must be inserted into the hole in the base and then the seat positioned on it. Somewhat unusually, there is no real feedback as to whether the gas spring is correctly inserted into the tilt mechanism. However, after a first test sitting, everything was firmly in place. The penultimate step is to attach the seat to the backrest – the rails go into the backrest, which we personally liked. The rather annoying jiggling until everything is in the right place is thus again saved and facilitates especially the assembly when you are alone.
Now the backrest is tightened with the screws and the last thing to do is to stretch the cushions on the finished SL5000SE. Overall, the whole assembly was very easy and went stress-free. The whole thing was reflected in the setup time. In about 20 minutes, with a somewhat practiced hand, you can manage the assembly all by yourself without any problems. Here, thought was given to how to make the assembly as uncomplicated as possible – and Vertagear succeeded in doing just that. All elements of the gaming chair fit together, as they should, and thus offer a superior quality.
