    Default Secret Labs Chairs Any Good?

    Self explanatory... Does anyone here have one if these chairs and if so, what are your thoughts? They have an XL version for the bigger lads, and even though I am always under the weight limits, I always find I wreck struts and they always start leaking.

    I am skeptical if anything advertised that heavily on social media.

    Seems like 90% Marketing 10% product.

    I've got a titan (6'3" 260 lbs) and I love it.

    Without beating a dead horse, hard-core office chair guys will insist your better of with a HM Aeron or something from Steelcase. Personally I couldn't stand the ones I had in the office.

    If you keep the origional packaging, you can return the secret lab within 49 days. Theres lots of good feedback, and some bad, but of the 4 other people I know who have one locally, they all like em as well.

I was hoping I could get an answer from someone who actually owns one and has real work experience... Thanks! Did you get the XL version or just roll with the standard Titan?

    Interesting video on these types of chairs. TL;DR gaming chairs are all the same. If you're using it for day to day, avoid it and get a nice office chair.

    I got the Titan earlier this year, I like it so far. Still think I'd prefer a Steelcase Leap though.
    Get the cloth version unless you like sweating in leather all day.
    IIRC there's a referral system that provides some free upholstery cleaner product that I've never gotten processed.

    The office is outfitted with these. I love them, they are firm but not too firm, great support, lots of adjustment.

    I was in heaven when I bought a big leather "lazy-boy" office chair 4 years ago, but I like these even better.

    When I was researching chairs, I came to the conclusion that the Secret Lab chairs weren't worth the money. If they were $150-$200 less, mayyybe, but at their price range you're better off with HM Aeron or Leap V2.

    If you're feeling rich and want a non-traditional office chair look and more gamer style then take a look at Herman Miller Embody.

    At least the gamer branding is a bit more subtle on that one.

    Its bizarre to me how important "gamer style" is for chairs and headphones.

    I have a titan for a few months now. It’s good, not perfect.

    I’d buy again, but I bought during Black Friday sales so saved some cash.

    My wife loves it, I’m enjoying it. Not perfect though, better than 90% of chairs however.

    Best chair I’ve had was doing 12s in a control room. It was an iron horse. Like $2600 hahah

    I got a couple KX-Zero from DX Racing back when they first came out, and I've been looking to replace them. The HM Aeron chairs look great, but my issue with all the high end office chairs is that the backs don't recline. I hate being completely upright without the option to change the back rest angle every 1/2 hour or so.
