Rocker chairs haven’t really been as popular over the last couple of years, and have really only been appreciated by a select crowd, much like the beanbag. But, in recent years they’ve quietly been seeing a serious resurgence amongst console gamers and home-media hounds alike. While most rocker type chairs tend to sit pretty high on the budget scale, there are a few that cater to a lighter budget. The Ace Bayou X Rocker gaming chair is one of the better of these budget rocker gaming chairs. The Ace Bayou gaming chair is one of the smaller rocker type chairs from X Rocker, and as such, it isn’t rated for large folks or anyone over 180 pounds. Anyone taller than 6”0 is also going to have a very uncomfortable experience in this chair, but with that said; it isn’t limited to kids alone.
The great people of Ace Bayou have not only perfected the X Rocker gaming chair but they’ve also formulated a sleek design of products that give maximum comfort for your gaming experience. The Ace Bayou gaming chair gives a unique look and add a little bit of luxury to the home gaming room for console players everywhere.
The look of this X Rocker gaming chair, in particular, can complement just about any room and any kind of setting as it blends in with all different colors of furniture.
You can set this chair down in a gaming den or a living room and it’s going to look good. While the lack of armrests does become far more noticeable when it comes to comfort, it does provide the Bayou with a more laid back, relaxed look. The visual design path that X Rocker has followed with the Bayou is similar to the fusion of an office chair and a sofa build for lounging. Even with the selective design choices, the color options do give the Bayou a sense of life when it comes to labeling it a “gaming chair”. While the visual appearance of the material used to holster the Bayou could’ve been refined a bit more, the chair itself is rather sleek. The single-piece rocker design of the Bayou helps define its visual presence and gives it that eye-catching flair that so defines gaming gear.
Another great thing Ace Bayou X Rocker Gaming Chair did with the ABC Life Style Rocker was they thought about all different age groups. Ace Bayou does a great job of making sure that not only kids can enjoy their products but adults can as well. Remember, there’s a lot of adults today that grew up on old consoles that are enjoying games today just as much as kids are.
You won’t mess up home your décor or throw it off as you add this chair into the mix. This chair offers a very low casual seating position for watching movies, doing some hardcore gaming or simply relaxing. It can be used just about anywhere for any scenario imaginable.

Who Is This ACE BAYOU 5121001 X ROCKER Chair For?
It’s hard to argue about functionality and the specifications of this Ace Bayou Gaming Chair because it’s one of the lowest priced gaming chairs on the market today. This chair is an excellent addition to any kind of home entertainment room and the console gamer. If you’re looking for any of the following features in a chair, this chair might be for you:
Comfort – If you’re someone who sits in a chair for a long period of time without moving a lot, you need something comfortable. Not for your own mental sanity but rather for your back health and your shoulders. You may not realize it but sitting on a hard surface for a long period of time does a lot of damage to your back, your neck, your wrists, your joints, and your shoulders. This is why it’s so important to be comfortable in a healthy seating position.
This chair offers not only a comfortable seating position but one that promotes positive health as well as the ergonomic position and headrest.
Affordable – If you need something affordable and aren’t ready to spend hundreds of dollars on a gaming chair, this is for you. Sure, there are chairs on the market today that offer gas-powered adjustable seating positions, they have detachable head/armrests and a wide variety of other features but the problem with those products is that they aren’t affordable. It’s hard to justify spending hundreds of dollars or more on a single product like a gaming chair.
This chair comes at one of the most affordable prices we’ve ever seen and over delivers for the price that’s being paid.
Versatile – If you need a chair that’s versatile and can be used in any kind of space, this is the chair for you. Gaming chairs believe it or not aren’t only for gaming. They’re built with maximum comfort in mind and sitting in a seated position for a long period of time. This makes it a perfect fit for any kind of home entertainment room. Whether you’re watching television, having a movie night with friends or doing some gaming, this chair keeps you comfortable for hours on end.
It can also be used in any room. It’s very friendly to floors and you don’t have to drag it across the room to move it because the chair is extremely lightweight.
The Design & Style – This is something that differs from everyone as people have different preferences but this chair offers a unique style and design to those who find the contemporary or modern look attractive. It doesn’t go overboard or have its own unique art style but it’s straightforward and to the point with a sleek black design.
The design options on the Bayou are very limited, aside from the choice you’re offered in terms of color. While X Rocker does offer chairs in very similar styles to the Bayou, the Bayou can’t be fitted with the features that the other chairs possess. Things like built in speakers, 2.1” audio jacks, USB ports for charging and pedestal fitting are entirely omitted from the feature options for the Bayou, unfortunately. This is reflected in the price tag, of course, but the design option of being able to upgrade later on would be very much appreciated by gamers everywhere.
While the overall design of the Bayou is very good for a budget gaming rocker, it does have its drawbacks. The seating position pretty friendly and rock-able to the average sized gamer, but anyone that is a little over average will need to be content with sticking their feet out flat or folding their legs. The weight distribution on the X Rocker Bayou forces you to sit right up, flush against the floor if you weigh a little too much for it. While you can counter this by using your feet to push the chair back in to a comfortable position, the strain on your legs becomes noticeable after only a few minutes.
Surprisingly enough, a lot of people are at first turned away by the price because a chair this cheap can’t be good, right? A chair that cheap can’t possibly offer the comfort and versatility of other expensive chairs on the market. We were as surprised as everyone else when we tried one. They’re very comfortable and great for teens, kids and young adults that aren’t over 6 feet tall. Paired with how affordable they are, it would be wise to snatch this X Rocker Gaming Chair up before they’re taken off the market forever.
