Secretlab gaming chairs are built to be highly customizable and feature a wide range of adjustments. Our handy sizing calculator can help you decide which size (Small, Regular or XL) suits you best, based on your height and weight.
We recommend checking our Resources page for the full measurements of each size. It can be helpful to use your current chair as a reference by comparing its measurements against those on our Resources page.
The assembly video and guide will walk you through each step of assembly. We strongly recommend that you watch this before attempting to assemble your Secretlab gaming chair as it contains vital safety information and tips that will make your assembly process smoother. Most users take about 20 minutes to assemble their chair.
Inspired by the natural flexibility of a fern leaf, this chair evenly distributes weight as you move to help relieve pressure. At its core is our patented Wave Suspension system, which mimics the human spine and cradles your body in comfort.
As someone with back problems - this is an incredible solution. Honestly, the only solution. I could not find another chair that fit the bill at any price point.What I was looking for in a chair:- Adjustable lumbar.- Cushiony soft.- Tall enough that my shoulders didn't rest on plastic or framing.- Adjustable lean / tension control- Headrest- Upright lock- Freedom to stretch and move.The chair hit all the marks - although I did not order the version with a headrest. All of the external reviews I could find thought the headrest was bad. I do still find myself wishing I had a headrest, however I can manage fine without. Cons:- This breaks the bank. While I love the chair, and I am sure there was a ton of RnD involved, I can't help but feel like these higher end chairs are priced for large organizations that can afford it. Unfortunately for my wallet, this is the only chair I have found that could tend to my medical back issues. Most probably can't afford it and realistically, neither can I, however I need back relief during the work day. - The arm-rests could use a slight bit more tension. Occasionally they slip.Comparison:I compared this most directly to the Herman Miller Embody. The reason this beat the Embody, for me, was the back height. At just over 6' tall, the embody frame corners push my shoulders down and defeats the purpose of the range of motion provided by the skinny back. The fern is just enough taller and more flexible in the corners.
Superb chair. I love how precise you can alter any part of the chair, whether it is how far to lean back, seat depth, seat tilt, and most especially, the arm rests. As opposed to having to constantly readjust myself in previous chairs (including the famous Herman Miller Aeron), I am finally content with a chair that I can sit in for hours.
And of course, the ergonomics of the chair. After trying a chair with both lumbar and no lumbar, no lumbar is definitely the way to go if anyone is on the fence. The chair naturally supports your entire back already, and I found myself sitting upright rather than slowly altering my posture to a hunchback.
Herman Miller and Steelcase have great chairs but in my opinion and personal experience, they don't compare to the Haworth chairs, especially the Fern. The Fern is quite a beautiful experience to relax and work on it. But what has surprised me the most is the wonderful service to their customers. Amy and Sue are the best I have experienced in 50 years in terms of attention, patience, and interest in making customers happy with their purchases. At first, I had a few small issues with my chair, however they went above and beyond to resolve them and I am now a very happy customer. Thank you, Amy, thank you Sue, and thank you to the entire Haworth team for all the excellent care.
Chair went on sale right after I ordered mine. Support was supper helpful and was able to add the discount to my order. The chair itself is very sturdy and was easy to unpack. Would recommend if you need a chair to last for the long haul.
We now know that any sustained in-chair time can be detrimental to your health, but a bad chair only adds to the problem by putting you in positions that add to long-term risk. If you have a home office, finding a chair that makes your desk time more comfortable and better for your health is a worthwhile endeavor.
Before each round of testing, we scour manufacturer sites for new models, comb through older versions of this guide to reevaluate our picks and previous dismissals, and consult ergonomics experts for advice on what to look for in an office chair that would best support your body for short or long periods of sitting. For our last major round of testing in 2019, we used the following criteria to whittle down a field of 50 contenders to a final list of 10 to test:
Because chair comfort is such a personal thing, in our 2019 round of tests we asked staffers of various body types, from a 5-foot-2 writer to a 6-foot-2 editor, to test each chair at our New York office. Each panelist evaluated the chairs on the above criteria using a modified version of this ergonomic seating evaluation form (PDF) from Cornell University, ranking the chairs on all the criteria on a scale from 0 (unacceptable) to 10 (excellent). We also gathered long-term testing notes for the chairs that staffers had been using in our offices for months.
All testers ran the office chairs through the same basic testing gauntlet, assessing comfort, body support, adjustability, and durability. This meant sitting in the chairs while typing at computers, playing video games, writing emails, sitting through meetings, and just leaning back to think. We sat in them properly and improperly, we aggressively twisted knobs, and we wheeled them recklessly around the office for over two weeks.
More recently, over a few weeks in my home office, I did an additional round of testing three sub-$400 office chairs: the HON Convergence, the HON Ignition 2.0, and the Fully Desk Chair. Wirecutter editor Ben Keough (who is 6-foot-1) tested the HON Ignition 2.0 and the Fully Desk Chair at the same time in his home office.
Rather than a single chair size that individuals can adjust for fit, the Aeron comes in different sizes (PDF). Much as with differences in clothing or shoe sizes, getting or not getting the right size could be a big factor in how well the chair fits you. Our test Aeron was size B, recommended for most people between 5-foot-2 and 6-foot-6. (In normal-speak, size A is small, B is medium, and C is large.) The sizes roughly correlate to height and weight ranges, and even though you might not find a size that fits you perfectly, you should still look at the size chart and consider what makes sense for you. One of our testers, right on the cusp of sizes B and C in the chart, found the size B chair far too narrow, and the recline too easy to push back accidentally. When in doubt, we recommend sizing up.
Most of these complaints are minor for a $300 chair that supports up to 300 pounds. Chairs in this price range usually have a lifespan of a year or two before they start falling apart, and the Ignition 2.0 at least feels durable enough to give you a solid five or more years.
Two of the newest chairs we tested came from Steelcase and Herman Miller. These chairs look sleeker and do away with most adjustments in favor of attempting to automatically conform to your body. Some people liked them, but we found in general that being able to manually fine-tune the Gesture led to greater comfort and fit for most of our testers.
The Steelcase Silq boasts an adjust-to-your-body engineering design similar to that of the Herman Miller Cosm, but we found the chair to be less comfortable for sitting for long periods of time than other, comparable chairs. The Herman Miller Sayl, specced for around the same price with more adjustments, was more popular with testers. One size C tester found that the Silq pushed them forward in an uncomfortable way and that the armrests dug into them. This chair might be better as a task chair in a conference room or if you tend to get out of your chair regularly throughout the day.
Chair feet are also included when you purchase wheels. We recommend starting with chair feet and then graduating to wheels when you are ready. If your chair has wheels, warn any friends that are new to active sitting that they are in for a different experience of sitting if they try out your QOR360 chair.
Have appreciated working thru the information presented about this chair; the reasonable cost; the excellent packaging it arrived in to my home. The ease of putting the chair together was impressive. Using the chair daily though, I had to start somewhat slowly d/t long standing history of lower back pain (44 years being an active Registered Nurse in hospital acute care). Thank you for producing such a thoughtful AND affordable with the goal of health improvement.
I purchased in the hope that perhaps this time I was ordering an item I would actually use to assist in the hours I sit at a desk. This one I love and and I am using it! It is all the company advertised. I had good conversations and quick response to my questions before purchase. Definitely try this chair. I have experienced a subtle sense of relaxation later in the day once I am away from my desk. Something good is being realigned in my spine. Thank you QOR360 for producing an affordable and thoughtful product with the hope to improve our health!
This chair is the very best thing you can do for your back. I have recommended these chairs to everyone I know that works at a desk for hours on end. Every one of them now loves these chairs. I had tried many so called ergonomic chairs, they all make your posture worse. The Ariel takes a while to get used to, but it is a great investment to make. The chair will not cost you an arm and a leg (and a backrest), the service is amazing. Thanks to the entire QOR360 team for designing and building this chair. 041b061a72
