Secretlab Buying Guide: Finding your perfect fit

By January 17, 2020 April 21st, 2020 No Comments

When you get a Secretlab chair, you’re investing in the award-winning sitting experience powered by R&D, engineered to keep you comfortably seated and fully supported for hours on end.

Whether it’s deciding on the right model and size of your chair,  or choosing from a range of top-of-the-line upholstery options to suit your sitting preference. You’re just 4 steps away from your dream chair

1. Find the right fit

It’s crucial to find the right chair that fits your height and build—there isn’t one size that fits all. This makes all the difference between comfortably enjoying those long hours of gaming, and constantly squirming and adjusting your posture in your seat in desperate hope of finding the perfect sitting position. 

With a chair that properly caters to your build, you are crucially able to plant your feet flat on the floor while seated—enabling better blood circulation in your legs. A backrest fitting to your height also ensures proper support while taking pressure off your neck and shoulders. These play a vital part for your sitting health, especially so over those long hours of work and play. 

That is why each Secretlab model has been engineered to cater to a range of heights and builds:

Model Secretlab OMEGA Secretlab TITAN Secretlab TITAN XL
Height range 160 – 180cm 175 – 200cm 180 – 208cm
Weight range <110kg <130kg 100 – 180kg
Seatbase type

That said, the range of choices have also taken into account your different sitting preferences. If you prefer a chair with an enveloping, snug fit, you can opt for the Secretlab OMEGA. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a roomier seat that will allow you to sit cross-legged, the Secretlab TITAN and Secretlab TITAN XL offers a levelled seatbase allowing you to do just that.

 

2. Choose your upholstery

4. Know what a Secretlab chair can do for you

Every Secretlab chair is fully adjustable. Whether you’re looking to sit fully upright, or with your seat slightly tilted and leaned back, or with the backrest in full recline, or alternating between these positions throughout the day your Secretlab chair will easily adapt to your needs.

 

Safeguard your lower back

It is not normal to slouch or find yourself leaning forward in your chair. This could mean your lumbar (lower back) is not well-supported. This is why Secretlab chairs all come with proper lumbar back support to ensure there’s never a gap between the natural inward curve of your lower spine and the seat. 

Lumbar support allows you to stay in and maintain a proper sitting posture. If not, the lower spine and large muscles in the lower back will overcompensate in order to support your body’s proper curvature and alignment—leading to lower back aches, sores and even pain after an extended period of sitting, particularly in less supportive chairs.

The Secretlab OMEGA comes with the Secretlab Signature Memory Foam Lumbar Pillow. Packed with premium, dense memory foam, it will mold to the shape of your lower back for that perfect balance between cushioning and support.


The Secretlab TITAN and Secretlab TITAN XL come with an adjustable lumbar support mechanism built into the backrest of the chair. You can easily adjust the depth by simply turning the knob on the side of the backrest, ensuring you get the desired amount of support for your lower back that’s precisely catered for your needs
