The latest gaming chair released by Razer is the Enki Pro. So, how does the new release compare to the normal Enki?
You can find out in this comparison article from Seeking Tech.
Unlike the Razer Enki, the Razer Enki Pro offers an Alcantara EPU synthetic leather cover, double-cushioned backrest and magnetic-based memory foam head cushion.
The Alcantara should offer a more premium and stain-resistance cover while the double-cushioned backrest will add more support and comfort for your back. The magnetic memory foam head cushion would be less likely to be displaced when compared to the strap-based head cushion on the Enki.
If these features benefit you, then the pro version is the better choice out of these two gaming chairs.
If you don’t mind missing out on the aforementioned advantages, then the Razer Enki otherwise offers the same features as the Razer Enki Pro, only at a much more affordable price point.

Chair Cover Material

The two chairs are built with the same aluminum base materials.
Both products are also supported by a steel frame.
The cushions are stuffed with high-density PU molded foam.
When it comes to the backrest, the normal Enki is single-cushioned. On the other hand, the Enki Pro is double-cushioned, which should offer more comfort and support for your back.
The Enki and Enki Pro offers 4D adjustable armrests, which means that you have the following options when it comes to moving the armrests:
- Left and right axis
- Forward and backward axis
- Up and down axis
These Razer chairs use 60 mm PU coated caster wheels so that you can easily roll it around on smooth surfaces.
Gas Lift Class
The Enki and Enki Pro has been rated with a class 4 gas lift, which is the highest rating when it comes to the strength and durability factors of changing the height of the chair.

Adjustable Back Angle
You can move the backrest of the Enki and Enki Pro backwards by as much as 152°.
Adjustable Lumbar Cushion
These chairs do not come with any adjustable lumbar cushions.
When it comes to an adjustable headrest, the Enki features a strap-based memory foam head cushion.
Meanwhile the Enki Pro comes with a magnetic-based memory foam head cushion that should be more stable as it won’t be as easily displaced.
Razer offers a 3 years warranty for the Enki and Enki Pro. It covers the mechanisms and moving parts of the chairs. Damages that are classified as normal wear and tear won’t be under warranty, however.
