Everyone thinks about a few key things when they are looking for a throne to plant themselves in for a long gaming session. When I say a few things, I am of course referring to comfort, stability, adjustability, and price. Why should you pick up a chair from Secret Lab, though? The answer is simple: they meet all of these criteria. Let’s explore the details of this new Softweave Fabric gaming chair.
In a market that has become inundated with chairs, it takes something special to keep things new and fresh. That is exactly why Secret Lab has come out with Softweave Fabric for their Titan Series chairs. This fabric is made from a dense 350GSM short-yarn and put through its paces to make it ultra-soft and fluffy. When I first sat down on this chair, after several months in my Arozzi XL+, I was blown away by how much of a difference the soft fabric makes these chairs feel. My back, my bottom, everything felt like it was specifically designed for my own personal comfort requirements. I stand at six foot tall so I am right in the middle of the height suggestions for the chair, which come in at 5’ 7” to 6’ 4”. It’s is capable of handling weights up to two hundred ninety pounds, as well, so those big and tall people out there should be good to go in one of these thrones.
From top to bottom, the Titan Series Softweave Fabric gaming chair was designed for extreme comfort for any user. Featuring an integrated adjustable lumbar support was one way to solve many gamers back issues without having to include an extra pillow you’ll need to adjust. With the simple twist of a knob on the side of the backrest, you can increase or decrease the amount of support your back receives.
The most common design for gaming chairs nowadays is that of a racing seat. Racing seats were designed to form fit their users and that has proven to be the best thing when it comes to making the most comfortable seat around. The curves of the chair feel like they were made just for my back. With the cold cure foam, you’re well supported in every way.. Whether it is the foam for the seat or the backrest you truly are getting the most comfortable chair for your dollars.
If we move away from the form fitting foam, we will discover other things that make this a great chair. The backrest gives you a full recline angle of one hundred and sixty-five degrees which is almost a lay. This allows you to just sit back and relax if you want to watch a movie or lounge as you play with a gamepad. Having tried this out personally, I can tell you that it is a very good way to sit. Depending on how tall or wide you are there are features that include your armrests also.
When you build the chair, you have the option to loosen the screws for the armrests and spread them out further. The adjustability doesn’t stop there. The armrests also move up and down to fit your height, they adjust back and forth to fit how your elbows are sitting at your side, and finally, they can be angled in and out for the most comfortable position while playing games. Not enough comfort and support for your head? Well, included with every Titan Series chair is a velour head pillow which is made from soft stretch cotton and covered in a velvet velour cover. This is one of the most comfortable chair pillows I have ever used and I love it.
A Stable Base
The second most important thing for a gaming chair is the ability to stay stable no matter what a user might be doing. Titan Series gives you a nice wide wheel base coming in at twenty-seven and a half inches. This allows for maximum stability for you when you sit down. With five extra-large P.U. casters you will glide smoothly back and forth across wooden floors. The Class-4 hydraulic piston has proven to be the best for stability, consistency, and safety. This is precisely why they can get someone up to six foot and seven inches in height and weighing up to two hundred and ninety pounds with the greatest of ease. No matter how you choose to sit, you are pretty much guaranteed to keep your feet firmly planted on the floor, which is good if you need to quickly back out of your desk area to get something. It also keeps you from dangling your feet which will reduce your risk for lowering your blood pressure to the lower half of your body.
Construction is a Breeze
When you get this box and open it up, you find everything is in its right place, packed up neatly. Nothing was damaged in shipping and I would be surprised if it was, given how thoughtfully its packaged. The greatest part is how simply you can put it together. If you’ve put any of these chairs together before, then you will notice how similar assembly is. If you have never have had to you’re in luck. The first thing you see on top of the chair parts is a flow chart of how to quickly piece together your chair. This will help you get up and sit down as soon as possible.
I don’t care what your personal body frame looks like, this is the chair for you if you are looking for comfort, stability, adjustability, and cost. Coming in at $429 USD you won’t break the bank for extremes on each of the listed criteria I’ve reviewed. Yes, there are chairs that are cheaper than this, but having sat in some on the much cheaper end of the spectrum, I can tell you for a fact that this is well worth the money. You don’t have to take my word for it but this has been the best sit of my entire life. Secret Lab has done it again with their Titan Series Softweave Fabric.
