First unveiled to the world back in April, the Tesoro Astro Martin F1 Team Gaming Chairs have recently made their way into Malaysia. Available in two variants, their arrival in our market was confirmed by the brand’s local distributor, Sun Cycle.
As you may expect, both the aesthetic and physical designs of these chairs were inspired directly by Astro Martin. For example, their structural design was generally lifted from the Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition while the lime-essence racing strip on their middle section is a nod to one of the brand’s signature design elements.
Tesoro also noted that both of these AMF1 Team Gaming Chairs also feature a perforated surface that was designed by Aston Martin itself and helps promote ventilation which could be useful when you spend long hours gaming with them. Equipped with a steel frame, high-density mould shaping foam, and adjustable memory foam lumbar pillow, both models can be reclined at up to 150 degrees and can support a maximum weight of 150kg.
As for what exactly differentiates the two variants apart, the answer would be the material that Tesoro used for their exterior. Specifically, the higher-end Stealth model is draped in Alcantara fabric while also featuring a pair of 4D armrests and an aluminium base.
On other hand, the Prime option comes with stain-resistance synthetic leather, a pair of 3D armrests, and a steel base. Regardless of your choice, both Tesoro AMF1 Team Gaming Chairs still have a lift distance of around 8cm and feature anti-scratch coating on their casters.
When it comes to pricing, the Stealth variant goes for RM2,279 while the lower-end Prime is available for RM1,489 although street pricing may be different. If you’re planning to get your hands on either of them, you may want to check directly with Sun Cycle’s retail partners for the actual in-store availability.
