Secret Lab Titan 2018 Gaming Chair Review

The Secretlab Titan Chair 2018 comes with a few different unique features and combines an all-in-one adjustable lumbar support right off the bat. You’ve probably seen the name Secretlab around the block of the gaming world recently and you’re probably wondering, where did they come from?

You can see them featured in eSport events and you can see popular Twitch streamers showcasing the chairs. The founders of the company, Ian and Alaric, were experienced Starcraft 2 players who wanted to help gamers feel relief after spending long periods of time in a Titan gaming chair. 

Design 

One thing we know Secretlab for is their logo. When they develop a Titan gaming chair, they like to put their logo on it to showcase their work. With a company that has rapidly expanded their operations to places like Malaysia, Australia and Southeast Asia, it’s easy to see why they want people to know who built their chair. One thing we appreciate about these lineup of gaming chairs is that it doesn’t try to overdo it with a bunch of bright colors or an over exaggerated design. Secretlab gaming chairs are simple, to the point and yet in their own way, elegant. 


In fact, these Secret Lab Titan gaming chair could easily fit in an office setting where there aren't too many strict rules about the kind of office chair you can use. The ergonomics will keep you focused and more productive helping you work better and longer.


Durability

The upholstery of the Secret Lab Titan chair is made with 1.5mm PU, which is relatively high quality and it’s built pretty solid. The gas lift in the chair is made with a class 4 lift, which means it’s extremely strong and has a smooth motion. All of these features combined with the base of the chair allows for consumers up to 130kg (or 280 pounds) use the chair comfortably. We haven’t heard or seen any complaints from people who are 6’ tall or taller. There’s a 2 year warranty included in the purchase, should the durability fail you but we really don’t think it will.


Other cheap gaming chairs sometimes use a hydraulic system that can't handle the weight and starts to lose its strength after a while, which means you are always having to raise your chair up.

Pros

  • There’s an assembly video from Secretlab on their YouTube to help guide you through the Titan chair easy installation process and take you step by step
  • The PU leather material is easy to clean and if you have a little accident or you get some dirt on the chair, just wipe it off and it’ll look as good as new
  • The wheels on the Secret Lab Titan gaming chair are rubber coated so that when it’s scooting across your hard wood floor, it’s silent and doesn’t leave a mark
  • The chair has an aluminum framework which makes it lighter than its predecessors and it does this without compromising on quality
  • The overall package dimensions of this chair only measure in at 33.5 inches by 14.5 inches, so the package is small and easy to unbox
  • 4D armrests can be positioned higher, lower, tilted and away from your body to the side for even more customization

Cons

  • The only realistic con we can think of with Secretlab is the pricing point because we do realize some people have a strict budget to adhere to when it comes to gaming chairs, but we’d also advise to at least give the chair a chance because it’s well worth it.

Features of the Secretlab Titan Gaming Chair

Incredibly Easy Assembly – If you want something that’s easy to assemble, then look no further than the Secret Lab Titan. Secretlab has even published their own assembly video on their YouTube but the video is unlisted.


Here is the video:


All of the steps, procedures and parts are laid out in a very clear and precise manner for the installation and assembly of the Secret Lab Titan chair. The overall assembly time shouldn’t be more than 20 minutes, which is perfectly acceptable for one person. The overall gross weight of this chair is approximately 35kg or 77 pounds, so it’s not too heavy either.


Adjustable Lumbar – Do you like the lumbar pillows that usually come with other gaming chairs? Well, not everyone does. Some of these pillows are difficult to keep on the chair, they slide around and some of them are just uncomfortable. The Titan 2018 lineup of chairs come with a knob on the side of the chair that can be turned to adjust the lumbar. This is one of our favorite aspects of the chair because while some pillows can be too soft or hard, a knob to adjust the lumbar section to how you want it is perfect.


Cold Cured Foam – The foam inside this Secret Lab Titan chair is highly absorbable and it comes highly compressible. It’s far more comfortable and far more durable than the average gaming chair, that’s for sure. You’ll find yourself slouched over in this chair far longer than you would most other gaming chairs. The comfort lasts for a lot longer than normal and you won’t get that after burn feeling when you stand up on your tailbone, back or neck.
