Razer Iskur V2 review: Comfortable back

Razer Iskur V2

The Razer Iskur V2 is a chair that's designed for your back. While it took me some time to get comfortable with it, once I found the right level of adjustments, the chair became really enjoyable to sit in.

Quick specs

  • Recommended weight and height: <136kg, 160cm to 200cm
  • EPU Leather
  • 152° recline, memory foam head cushion

Unlike the Enki X which I reviewed back in 2021, the Iskur V2 comes with everything, including an adaptive and adjustable lumbar support, 4D armrests, and a wide seat base. Like all gaming chairs, you can recline until you're almost lying flat, and the chair also goes up and down. The Iskur V2 is very much improved over the original Iskur (though to be clear, we did not review that chair previously). It gets a bunch of new features, including a wider seat base, as well as a new lumbar system. If you recall, the original Iskur back in 2020 was somewhat of a game changer, with its back and forth lumbar system. Other chairs followed with something similar, such as the Secretlab Titan Evo, which came with a 4D lumbar system.

But it's the Iskur V2's new adaptive and adjustable lumbar system that really takes the cake. It can follow your back as you turn in the chair. That means that if you're twisting your body to the side, the lumbar support follows your spine, providing support all the way. It also moves up and down, as well as back and forth. It took me a while to find the right amount of support, though. The maximum setting was a bit too much for my spine, and I had to settle for just a little bump. It was a tad uncomfortable the first two days after switching from the Ergotune Supreme V3. But once I figured out the right settings, the chair suddenly felt extremely comfortable.

Besides the new lumbar system, the Iskur V2 also has a bunch of improvements over its predecessor. The seat base is wider, similar to the Secretlab Titan Evo in size, and allows you to sit cross-legged if you want (though it's a bit tight for me). The recline is now 152° over the 139° of the original, and you can lie really flat. The side base wings are somewhat gone, which allows for a more comfortable posture. The synthetic leather is also upgraded to be softer, and more durable. But if that's not for you, the chair also has a fabric option.

At S$949, the Razer Iskur V2 is one of the most expensive gaming chairs in the market. But the comfort it offers is probably among the best you can get. The new lumbar system is really good at supporting your spine, though I'm not a fan of the memory foam head cushion. It uses a strap design, which I feel isn't as good as Secretlab's magnetic version. Get it from Razer, Shopee, Lazada, or Amazon SG.
