Arozzi Torretta Gaming Chair Review

/ 9 years ago

It’s not every day I replace my office chair, but this time I decided to treat myself to something a little more fun, the Arozzi Torretta Gaming Chair. At £169.99 it’s far from cheap, but for those who spend extended amounts of time at their desk, paying that bit extra for something comfortable is certainly good advice. Obviously there’s only so much I can say about a chair, but let’s take a quick look at what Arozzi have to offer.

The Torretta comes in a massive box, with everything nicely packaged and protected.


The base of the chair is made from metal, whereas many office chairs feature plastic fittings.


The back part of the chair is just like a racing seat, with side supports to hold you snugly in place.


The base unit has a thick memory foam padding a washable covers.


All the fittings are of a really nice quality and all look fairly simple to put together.




The two parts of the seat are fastened by Allen Key bolts. It’s a little tricky to do the first screw, especially since humans only have two arms.


Once each side is attached, you need to screw on the plastic covers. Keep in mind that the screwdriver isn’t included, although the Allen Key for the bolts is.



Next, we turn the chair on its side.


Then it’s simply a case of four more bolts to fit the gas lift mounting.


Finally step, drop the gas lift and the plastic coverings on to the base, clip on the wheels and you’re ready to stick the chair on top, that’s it!



A Closer Look

Once mounted we can see that the arm rests are height adjustable; they can also be rotated inwards and outwards about 45 degree.


The included cushions are completely optional, but also very easy to adjust or remove once installed. The top cushion is super soft and provides a nice rest for your neck. The Bottom cushion is for lumbar support and is made of a harder foam padding. The straps allow you to slide the bottom cushion up and down to suit your personal preferences.


The chair height can be adjusted via the gas lift mechanism located under the seat; pretty standard stuff really.


The tilt force can be adjusted by the dial under the seat, although you can also move the gas lift arm inwards to lock the chair and prevent it from tilting backwards.


The backrest can be set upright, or adjusted all the way back to almost flat, perfect if you need to put your feet up and kick back for a bit.


Overall, this is a very comfortable chair and while the padding is a little hard at first, it’s designed to wear in to the user after extended use.



Final Thoughts


The Arozzi Toretta is available from Overclockers UK for £154.99 to £169.99 depending on which colour you want. There’s also an XL edition available for £199.99, which is 10cm wider.


The Arozzi Toretta is a hefty investment compared to the price of an average desk chair. Many people I’ve asked sit on something that cost no more than £70 and the Toretta is another £100 more expensive than that. This can be a worrying investment for some, but it really depends on how much time you sit at your desk. For me personally, I spend all day at my desk, then when I finish working, I sit at my desk some more to play games and relax. Because of this, I obviously want a good quality seat and if you work out that I’ll have this chair for at least two years, that’s about 20p a day for this chair; not so bad.

The chair is very comfortable, although admittedly the first couple of days took some getting used to. I can’t lean or slouch in this chair like I could my old one. Of course, this is no bad thing and after a few fairly uncomfortable days, my spine is straighter and the discomfort I had from my old chair, as well as from this chair when it was new, has gone.

The adjustable back rest and the additional cushions are something you’ll wonder how you did without. It doesn’t matter if you’re integrating this into your racing rig setup, or just putting it into the office, it’s going to provide you with sturdy back support regardless.

The Torreta is a very heavy chair, but despite its large overall size and weight, the high-quality wheels make it as nimble as a figure skater; good news for those who like to play office chair jousting.


  • Adjustable armrests
  • Adjustable backrest
  • Optional lumbar and neck cushions
  • Metal base (most chairs are plastic)
  • Great aesthetics


  • Expensive
  • Quite a slim base compared to most desk chairs, those who have wide hips may want to check out the XL model.
