This is a good seat for a larger guy (I’m 6’1 and 16 stone) and it fits me no problem. It seem well made but as with most recliner seats it does flex under heavy braking but not so much to effect your driving. The reason I dropped one star off my review score was that whilst it has seat runners and a recline function you cannot adjust either the height or the incline of the seat base. I found that the seat very slightly pitched me forwards adding pressure to my upper legs. This was easily solved, albeit at an expense, by buying an incline seat base from another company for £50 which raised the seat around 4 inches and has multiple incline options. I have found that with this fitted and the seat base inclined around 30 degrees the seat now contacts where it’s supposed to and relieved the pressure on my upper legs I was experiencing. Please note that everyone’s body is different so what I experienced might not be your experience of the seat. I think I would have gone with the new Inertia bucket seat if it had been out then but this seat still does the job and is a decent buy for the larger racer.
more than happy with my seat and setup...Ill just keep adding from here too!
Sorry .I must write in German . Der Aufbau ist sehr einfach .Alles ist sehr gut verpackt und ohne Schaden hier angekommen .Die Lieferung ging auch sehr schnell . Your Service is very good . Best Greetings from Germany Stefan Precht
Bought the XL R/S seat as I’m a big lad(19st/120kg), a little worried that there is some play in the back rest when I sit but can’t really feel it moving when racing. There are much more expensive seats out there and for the price I’m not unhappy
Great Chair, fast shipping.
Very happy with the seat. Solid and comfortable.
Sehr gutes Produkt !!!
The seat is fine. It's comfortable to sit on. The only issue I have is with the mounting hardware. I cant really reach the screwhole in the front since the seat does not slide back enough. This makes it impossible to mount on top of alu profiles like the GT Omega Prime cockpit.
Low level simulator made incredibly better with this seat! Absolutely love this seat and makes for great gaming.
This is the second time I have bought this seat. This one is for another sim racing rig in the house. Really comfortable and very good quality. From ordering to delivery everything was perfect. Good job GT Omega. Greetings from Germany.
The seat itself is great but the mounting of the XL Seat is a pain. It is not possible to mount the front 2 screws at all. You need a special super short allen key. Can you just put that in the box or at least write a text that special equipment is needed to mount it. It took me over 2 hours to figure it out.
An excellent seat, so good I have it for my racing rig and desk chair!
XL RS seat has way too much flex! Seat twists to the left when you lean back. Left side hinge is not locked like the right side is, so the left side can just move freely. That hinge design should not be used with wide seat like XL RS! I used the seat few hours and my left shoulder and left side back muscles were sore for trying to keep my body straight while braking and using the 11 Nm wheel. I managed to fix the left side hinge to a one angle by attaching metal strip between two bolts. Now I can use the seat without any shoulder or back pain.
The only issue I have is the access to the mounting holes in the GT Omega seat slider. I can slide the seat forwards to access the 2 aft mounting holes of the slider bracket, in this way I can attach the bolt through these two aft holes to my rig. However the seat is not sliding far enough backwards to have access to the front two mounting holes (of the slider), the seat itself is blocking the front two mounting holes of the slider. If I had access to these two holes I will be able to fix them to the rig. The solustion was to cut and wrench to fit it in underneath the seat to fasten the front mounting bolts<
To begin with, the delivery was as advertised and securely packaged. The cost of delivery to the EU was also the same as stated. Unpacking and assembly was easy, with only a description of the office chairs and not the racing seat included. After a very complex installation on my rig, I can comment very positively on the comfort and functionality of the seat. From my side a purchase recommendation especially for people who are not exactly have Horse jockey size.
Front part of Seat slider doesn’t extend all the way forward so it doesn’t give any room to put in an Allen key to securely screw it down to rig Also the seat itself isn’t too comfortable, it doesn’t offer any type of support and can get uncomfortable if you are seated too long.
Was easy enough to install, comfortable and looks great.

Backrest is loose even if bolts are tight. A bit disapointing
My son had the regular sized chair previously but it was not a very comfortable fit ( 6’6”). As a result the previous seat wore out prematurely., the side bolster wore through in a little over a year. He says he loves the XL, it’s much more comfortable for him.
I’m a pretty big dude. 6’2 & 250 lbs. the chair is perfect. Doesn’t hug my sides, solid material, very comfy.
Schön großer Sitz auch für stärker gebaute. Der Sitz ist sehr bequem und ist sehr gut verarbeitet.
Very nice seat, quick delivery and good customer service.
Very comfortable and easy to install/set up. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering a purchase. Also shipping to the US was very fast considering the conditions in the world today.
Wanted to go back to an adjustable seat from racing style bucket for variation in comfort. This seat provides that. The XL is plenty roomy for my larger frame. All in all a great purchase. The only downside was the process of affixing the seat to my 8020 chassis. I'm guessing it's the longer seat depth that prevents unobstructed access to the 4 bolts, regardless of how far forward or back the seat is on the sliders. Had to fashion a stubby allen key to access tightening. As said though, once secured this is a great seat.
First this seat is awesome! Really comfortable, good quality and so beautiful! It feels luxury just looking at it but also when using it. This help me drive better. The XL-RS worth it, you almost feel like you are in a real car. Adjustable just like in a car too. I could give 20 stars! Also, the service after sell is awesome at GT Omega. I had a problem with one of the zipper in the back and they sent me another back seat right away, from GB to Canada! I definitely recommend this seat to all my friends. I will also look for their frame and other stuff when it becomes available as all look really good quality. Thank you much GT Omega!
Had been looking at GT Omega for a long time while saving up to build an 80/20 rig. The XL-RS is better in person than in the pics. The seat is solid, comfortable, comes with sliders. Arrived in one week from placing the order and took about 10 minutes to assemble. The covering feels fantastic to the touch, the embroidered logos front and back are first class. With free shipping I have no idea how GT Omega makes money on this seat!! Hands down there is no better seat available in Canada, based on quality and price, than the GT Omega XL-RS.
quick shippment , suitable and large seat, everything is perfect, I am very happy with this product.
This is a really good chair especially for the larger person. Really comfortable, and fits well with the other parts i bought.
Not sure if it’s a design fault because of how the back attatches to the base but the left side of my chair leans slightly further back than the right side and it’s really not a nice seating position. Will not be buying from gt omega again.
J’avais acheté un support GT omega pour mon pédalier/volant Thrustmaster T300 RS GT edition et il me manquait le fauteuil (pas top sur le canapé). J’ai commandé tout ce qu’il me manquait sur leur site (cadre arrière, fauteuil et roulettes). Commandé un dimanche soir, traité le lendemain (). Reçu avec un peu de retard à cause de la douane française, bien emballé. Pièces lourdes et solides et très faciles à installer. Je ne regrette pas mon achat.
Very nice chair, well-made and comfortable. I’m 6 feet and the chair fits fine.

I got 3 issues: My purchase was a while ago but I was able to use the seat only for 2-3 days now due to the delays of my sim rig. Issue 1: The front bolt holes are not accessible from the top like on a normal car seat so I can't just throw in some bolts and thighten them. It was really difficult to mount the seat to a aluminum profile. Issue 2: I don't know the reason but the bottom cushion gives me extreme pain in my buttocks on long sessions. Issue 3: Seat is really big and I knew this before buying, wanted the most comfortable seat. My height is 174 cm. and the lower back support is quite high so I need additional back support unfortunately. Due to these issues I have to give low rating, sorry.

fast delivery and great price and the best thing its a quality product
The XL RS seat is a great choice for extended sessions of sim racing. Comfortable with the right element of support. The extra room in the seat makes for easy rig access and I would highly recommend it for the "larger" sim racer. GT Omega recognised this and have made a great seat for those that either need a little more room or an alternative to an overly tight bucket seat fit. Superb design, strong construction, great materials and finish all delivered with the top support of the GT Omega team!
product as per description. perfect. top
The transfer lever did not move up enough. And then the seat did not move forward and backward. I had to modify a bit.
Very happy with my seat from GT Omega. I’m 6’2” and weigh 240. The seat is very comfortable and being able to adjust is done very easily. Took about 30 mins to mount rear frame and seat to classic wheel stand. Good value for money.
I am older and larger, don’t fit well in a true racing seat anymore. This seat fits me and is comfortable. Works well for me, very satisfied. Still trying to race at 68.
its ok but the bolt holes are hard to get to
i love it!
Ottimo ....tutta postazione da voi....un coupon sarebbe ideale da ricevere x tutta la postazione completa presso da voi...grazie

I mounted it on an Apex Wheel Stand + rear seat frame. While the wheel stand works well, I didn't find the seat particularly comfortable. Wouldn't reccomend it based on my experience.
Very pleased with the product quality. You can sit in there for hours without getting tired!
I Bought 3 years ago the wheelstand from GT Omega and was using a normal chair. This was not a good solution and becaus the wheelstand was moving a little bit. Since i bought the chair and make it together with the wheelstand is this problem solved and is it very comfertable to drive a race game. This 60 year old man is so happy as a child.
great product great price great service
As you see l now have my XL RS Sim seat on classic rig which has made all the difference. Its very comfortable and me being a big fella it's ideal with the width on my back so GT Omega have done really well. I hope to upgrade in the near future and the prime SIM Rig has caught my eye.
Would have bought the RS9 if it was in stock.
Great Quality really built to last.
I have lower back problems so I was quite apprehensive when purchasing this. Didn't need to be, it's really comfortable even for long races. It has minimal flex and feels solid and very sturdy. Just another great product from GT Omega.
Bin sehr zufrieden.
I love the quality of the Seat, IT is better as i imagineer. The amount of flex in the backside is really low. Only note i can give is that the Seat sits very low on my 8040 alu rig and need extentions for my Seat. But this can Differ from rig to rig.
Good quality product, simple to install
all good happy with the service. Sad that averything is out of stock
Der Sitz ist sehr bequem, jedoch quietschen die Federn in der Rückenlehne, was etwas nervig ist. Für den Preis würde ich den Sitz trotzdem weiterempfehlen.
Very happy with the XL RS seat. I'm surprised by how comfortable it is. Probably the best you can get for this price range. Thumbs up as always to GT Omega.
The seat is lovely but it would have been even better if it had come with some instructions on how to put it together... leaving it down to guesswork is a bit shabby....
This racing seat has now completed my son's race frame setup. The XL-RS is perfect for his 6'2" height. He loves it.
i already have the art cockpit and the rs9 which i have had for 4yrs the cockpit is as good as when i first purchased it it was time for a more firmer and bigger seat and boy i was not disappointed been using the seat now for 2weeks and its mint the service response and delivery from gt omega was superb to say the least ordered on wednesday 1pm came next morning at 9-30 absolute class 5 stars yours faithfully paul
I found GT Omega on Amazon Italy and found it interesting I bought Apex Wheel Stand. I immediately found myself well doing a search I arrived at the official website bought ApexRear Set and an XL seat for Apex Wheel now I have a station for Sim Racing of all respect but there is much more. if I were to then make an apgrade I think I would buy Gt Omega again. And the shipment was fast and accurate what to say thank you for your commitment. P.S. I use google traslator not knowing English
Easy setup, great price and very comfortable. Very happy with purchase.
The seat is very well made. I see that Omega GT pays attention to reviews as they have updated some of the complaints people had about the seats. This seat has lots of room and is made for bigger people. It is a little on the firm side and I use a lower lumbar pillow for support. I can race hours in this seat with very few issues. For the cost, it is an excellent purchase.
Quick shipping. Comfortable seate. No paperwork for how to put the seat together but easy to do.
Seat made well and excellent for quality / price. I mounted it on the Dof Reality H3 dynamic station without any modification. I could have taken the standard size one. This XL is very big ... but it's ok anyway. I advise! ; )
I love my XL-RS seat. I have a large muscular build and this seat fits me greatly! I can fall asleep in the chair if I want to. It was easy to setup on my GT Omega seat stand and I can finally brake hard without sliding backwards like I was on a roller gaming chair. I'm very happy with my GT Omega classic sim rig and I'll be keeping it for a while to come!
Awesome quick delivery and good quality seat even for very big people....
The unit is well constructed, the seat excellent. The front unit it attached to seems sturdy enough, could use a bit of bracing to solidify it. No issues with this purchase Shipping was fast. Would buy again if I could do it over again.
Good quality and very comfortable
Best value for money, looks great and it is very comfortable.
comfy and big I like it so much.
I bought the GT Omega classic stand out of sheer luck on Amazon.com. It looked good and sturdy so I decided to get it to pair with my T300RS, TLCM pedals, and TH8a shifter. Low and behold I found out I could buy a seat stand attachment and seat to go with it, so I did so. The XL-RS seat is soooo comfortable. I could fall asleep in it. The whole rig is sturdy and I can hit the clutch and brakes without sliding back anymore. I love that everything is adjustable and I was able to dial it all in just right for my height and leg length. I'm very happy with my GT Omega rig and when Thrustmaster releases their Direct Drive wheel, I hope it will fit with no problem onto my current rig. My favorite sim right now is Automobilista 2 and I feel like I can play it in style!
love it. so good
Nice chair but no bolts to attach IT to the seatpost?
I have not received my order and GTOmega does not want to know anything about it. Burglars.
Chair is moderately comfortable and looks nice but there's what sounds like a squeaky spring every time I lift my back off the chair.
Good seat comfortable a bit heavy
I went from having the steering wheel mounted to the desk, which was ok, but unstable when really getting into racing, therefore then upgraded to a wheel stand, which was a great improvement, but a regular chair just didn’t cut it. Finally purchased this seat for my 11 year old boy, who plays Forza 5. Great experience to say the least. I saw that he enjoyed the experience so much that I purchased a complete set for myself as well. Now we race on Friday nights together, he hasn’t played his Fortnite game since, lol.
Highly recommended does the job
My first seat was unfortunately damaged and it took two weeks to get the replacement parts, which was a little bit unsatisfying from a customer perspective. Beside this I cannot say anything negative about the product. From a quality perspective it can't be compared to my prior racing seat, which was more or less the same price. The racing seat it well made, looks good and is comfortable even on longer sim racing sessions. If you are not a small guy the racing seat seams to be the perfect match from a price-performance ratio.
a great chair replaced the last one I had for +15 years
all i can say is THIS IS THE S**T i love it very sturdy and comfy for a tall fat guy like me this is awesome thank you for enhancing my racing experience. customer service is second to none
It would have been nice to get some instructions together with the seat.
I recently jumped into sim racing. After finally making a decision on a sim-lab GTEvo-1 I also needed a seat. While I do like the looks of a Sparco or something similar, being a bigger guy I wanted more room with my choice. Checking YouTube I found the XL-RS GtOmega racing seat. Received order in a timely manner with me being in the states. I definitely like the looks and feel of the seat. What a huge difference this seat makes in playing the games. If you need a seat with some more room don't hesitate on this seat. Great price and the box was in great condition. Thank you GT Omega!!
I have a Next Level F-GT sim and didn’t like the seat. Saw a YouTube video of a guy converting to an Omega RS9. Conversion seemed like an easy deal but I am a bigger guy so I thought I would try the XL-RS. Since I like the GT position, I hoped it would fit. It shipped from England and arrived quicker than some stuff from the states. There were two holes in the sliders that lined up with the cross braces of the F-GT Sim perfectly, so I only had to drill four holes just about ¾ of an inch wider than the stock mounts. Perfect fit. The seat is thicker and sits higher in the sim so I had to readjust the wheel position. Couldn’t be happier. This is a perfect solution for the crappy seat that comes with the F-GT. I didn’t try it in the lay down position. Great product and quick service. Recommended
I am so happy with this seat feels great to sit in. Rig is finally finished and will recommend these products to others.
Nach 4 wochen durchgesessen,material giebt nach vorsicht billiger sitz
I started out with a play seat evolution which I still use only with the gt omega seat mounted to it. The original play seat does not recline and that is the main reason that I started shopping around for a different seat. I picked the gt omega with the thought that in the future I might upgrade to one of the gt omega sim rig chassis’s. I have used a piece of plywood for the adapter by mounting it to the play seat sim rig chassis and the gt omega seat to it. So far I am very pleased with the results.
This seat is unbelievable value for money! Nice and big, comfortable and well made. Couldn’t ask for more. Except maybe a discount to upgrade to one of their sim rigs Nice fast delivery and good aftercare service from GT Omega. Recommended!
looks better than pic, fast shipment to germany, nice product
It's a nice chair
The seat is very comfortable and just what I wanted. However, I bought it to replace the RS9 seat and now my wheel was is a little low due to the seat sitting higher and my ART rig wheel deck does not extend higher so some DIY needs to be done.
