Before looking at the gaming chair itself, perhaps we should probably talk about Martiangear as a company.
Martiangear is a Singapore-based company that specialises in high-end gaming furniture and accessories. But what makes them different from the crowd has to be their gaming chairs.
They’re one of the very few gaming chair manufacturers that offer plenty of options for customers to choose from. And if you’re a gamer, then you know that it takes a while to find that perfect chair. So Martiangear offers over 5 different gaming chair series (Astronaut, Interstellar, Supernova, Starfighter and Starship).
And to make sure that they fit any body size, they also come in different sizes (S, M, L). Now if you think that’s all, then you’re absolutely wrong. You can also choose from a variety of materials like vegan leather, fabric or mesh to get a chair that’s truly meant for you.
If you’re confused about which gaming chair model would be best for you then we’ve got you covered. We’ve provided a handy table which explains the differences between the models in terms of both engineering and ergonomics.
So today we’re here to provide you with an in-depth review of the Martiangear Astronaut Series, which we personally had the chance to try out so that we could give you the most honest review.
The Martiangear Astronaut comes with snug dimensions, high-end features and has very unique styling. We’re honestly impressed and here is why this is one of the best luxury gaming chairs on the market.
What makes the Astronaut series different from the other models is that it uses a classic racing car design. You might have even heard of its other name, “The Bucket Seat.” The ridged edges restrict leg movement to ensure optimal ergonomics. That’s excellent news for your back. However, if you’re a gamer who prefers having enough room to cross your legs, then the extra-wide Martiangear Interstellar and Supernova might be a better choice.
Free next day Delivery and Assembly:
This is one of the things we love the most about Martiangear. They offer free next day delivery and assembly for all of their products! So no more waiting around and checking your door for your delivery.
We placed an order for our Martiangear on a Monday around 05:00 pm. After 20 minutes, we received a message to schedule the time for delivery and assembly. And voila! We had our chair the very next day, Tuesday around 10:00 as we had scheduled.
The Astronaut came in a big, black-coloured, luxurious carton bag. It’s massive and weighed around 30 kg. It also comes with a huge assembly manual which you can re-use as a poster. On flipping the manual, you get a really cool astronaut picture.
The logistic team from Martiangear assembled the chair for us in less than 10 minutes which is more than impressive.
Astronaut Gaming Chair Features:
Now coming to the section which you must be most interested in. The Martiangear Astronaut comes with a myriad of features. It is available in either vegan leather or breathable fabric. If you’re unaware of what vegan leather really is, it is an innovative material which is a combination of PU (polyurethane) leather, and recycled plastic.
This artificial leather seems so real that it would be hard to find a difference between the real leather and this human-made leather. So you get to enjoy the feel of leather while remaining environmentally friendly. Vegans are also sure to appreciate this. It is accompanied by cold-foam cushioning.
Now everyone knows that the upper parts of leather gaming chairs always seem to fall apart, rip and deteriorate over the course of mere months. But fret not, as with this elite combination of materials, you won’t face such issues. It is tear-proof, water, fire and abrasion-resistant! All vegan leather Martiangear chairs come with a 3-year peel free warranty while other spare parts have a warranty of 3 to 5 years. Did we mention that the steel frame comes with a warranty of a whopping 12 years!
Coming to durability, this chair surpasses expectations here too. The shiny, stainless steel handles provide maximum support, while the arm-rests are adjustable in four directions. So you can sit in the chair and enjoy an experience that feels especially created for you.
As far as adjustability is concerned, the Martiangear Astronaut doesn’t fall behind here as well. You can adjust the height of the chair by 10 cm, and recline the back-rest from 90° to 135° by using the lever on the side. By unlocking the rocking mechanism, you can also recline it up by up to 155°. Simply put, you can go from full-on upright position to an almost-horizontal one.
These chairs also come with a free lumbar-support pillow and neck cushion. It’s going to be tough to not fall asleep while you’re on your Martiangear Astronaut, trying to get through the next pile of paperwork.
Here are some more features which might interest you,
- Premium automotive grade materials (About 350 components required to build this chair)
- Minimalist and high-end stitching
- Martiangear head and lumbar-support pillows included
- 4-D arm-rests
- Automotive-grade reclining lever
- High-quality locking mechanism
- Certified by BIFMA for ergonomic comfort and security

- Massage Lumbar pillow available as an add-on.
Finally, last but not least we come to how much this chair will cost you. All Martiangear gaming chairs which are made of vegan leather and fabric are priced at $488. This includes free delivery and assembly. They also offer free instalments with Hoolah at check-out if you would prefer to pay in instalments. And don’t forget to keep an eye on their Instagram page for the occasional flash sales they run.
Considering the price, you’re getting an incredible value for money since this chair is of such high-quality. We recommend visiting their showroom in CBD to personally try out these chairs so that you can decide which one suits your needs best. Besides chairs, they also have plenty of additional things to offer like their tables which will pair perfectly with your chair!
We personally visited their showroom as well, and were assisted by the founder herself. Their customer service truly felt out of this world.
So take your time and explore around! It’s more than worth it.
The Martiangear Astronaut Series manages to marry the best of both worlds; providing you with both comfort and style. And it manages to do all this without breaking the bank and that’s honestly pure magic. It’s probably the most comfortable chair that we ever experienced.
Considering the high-end materials used in the creation of this chair, its adjustability and the long warranty, we believe that it’s a bargain. You won’t be able to find a chair that offers such value for money in Singapore.
So in conclusion, the Martiangear Astronaut is at the top of its game when it comes to a gaming chair. We unanimously elected Martiangear to be the best gaming chair in Singapore and we’re sure that you’ll agree.
