Introduction & Closer Look
Having seen quite a few different gaming chairs over the last couple of months here at Play3r, I would like to think that my rump behind is a good judge of character on quality. You may not believe me when I say this, but a good and well-built chair can be the difference between comfort and back pain. The last thing you want after a gaming session is a sore back and this could lead to problems later on in life and nobody wants that, right?
Today I’ll be taking a look at the noblechairs EPIC which is available in a variety of options including black/gold, black/blue, black/red and the colour our sample today is rocking, black/green. The noblechairs EPIC features a PU leather (pleather) cover and has many features which include an adjustable backrest, adjustable armrests and 2 luscious soft cushions included; one for head/neck support and one for lumbar support. Let’s start by taking a look at the contents of the box before we check out the official specifications (you can find these on the next page)…
The base features a 5 spoke design and is constructed of solid metal.
Here we have the seat base and the general bulk of the 29KG boxed weight of this chair; make sure you get some help carrying the box!
Not quite as heavy, but certainly eye-catching, here we have the backrest of the chair.
The gas lift mechanism is one of the most important features as this determines the safe maximum user weight. The mechanism also allows for rocking with the main dial sitting slap bang in the centre; you can twist this for your desired setting. The noblechairs EPIC allows for a maximum user weight of 150KG which is really good, especially for those larger gamers.
Included are 2 cushions, 1 for lumbar and the other for neck and head support. These are very soft and feel like a million dollars!
Last, but not least, we have the accessories which come pre-packed inside a box. Included is 5 castors, plastic cover plates, bolts and washers for assembly as well as the gas lift pole; a lovely Allen driver (screwdriver one end and Allen key the other) comes included with the bolts too! The castors are made from moulded plastic which is suitable for carpet and hard floors; this should leave your floors scratch and scuff free which is good obviously!
