The X Comfort Air can soothe hot asses thanks to the four fans built into the seat of the chair, which looks like a pretty impressive gaming accessory even without the cooling tech.
Built into a 'unique wind blocker frame [.] specially created to direct greater volumes of airflow towards the middle section of the blade' the four 60mm fans push air through to the seat of the chair with the claim of cutting the heat down by up to 1.5ºC on the fans' maximum speed setting.
In order for the fans to effectively cool the seat, the X Comfort Air features "breathable mesh under the PVC leather with unique ventilation holes". The control box lets you turn the fans on and off and has Low, Medium, and High settings for the fan speeds, with Low at 1530 RPM, Medium at 3060 RPM, and High at 5100 RPM, the maximum speed of the fans. This, coupled with use of highest quality design materials, anti-fatigue construction, true ergonomic form and maximum function design, ensures the X COMFORT AIR creates the ideal balance between desired gaming comfort and performance. According to Thermaltake, these four 60mm five-blade fans can reduce temperatures by 0.6°C to 1.5°C. "The use of high-quality components in the fan blade design provides a whopping 75,000-hour lifespan, which is double than that of industry standard and provides utmost performance and reliability", Thermaltake explains.
Available in all-black and the classic red and back gaming colour schemes, the X Comfort Air will set buyers back by a hefty $500, around £380, and it appears to be only available in the U.S. at the moment.
Better known for cooling PC hardware rather than the derrières of gaming enthusiasts, Thermaltake has made a decision to turn its hand at cooling human flesh alongside silicon with the X Comfort Air chair. More information on the X Comfort Air can be found here. It has adjustable 4D armrests, extra head and back support that are both adjustable, and a multi-function tilt mechanism with a locking system.
