Secretlab brand gaming chair review: all 2020 Series models

Secretlab is a Singapore-based maker of high-end gaming chairs. Their collection has a small, large and extra-large model. Many of the world’s top esports teams use these chairs for full-time training. This Secretlab gaming chair review analyzes the qualities of the Omega, Titan and Titan XL gaming chairs. All offer superb ergonomic features, incredible comfort, and excellent back support.

Secretlab gaming chair review
Secretlab makes small Omega chairs, large Titan ones and also Titan XL models.

Secretlab chairs come in Omega, Titan, and Titan XL variants. The Omega is a slim-fitting chair, the Titan a large one. Among these two models, there are 36 different styles to choose from.

The Titan XL is a super-sized version of the Titan. It comes in three fabric designs and two leather ones.

Secretlab chair overview

Each Secretlab model has different dimensions, ranging from small to extra-large. Another difference between chairs is the back support. The Omega uses a traditional lumbar pillow. The two Titan chairs use a slick internal lumbar device instead. Summary of similarities and differences:

Chair features

Secretlab chairs use the highest quality materials and the most advanced production techniques. Each build starts with a robot-welded, carbon steel frame.

Secretlab chair materials

Over the steel frame goes a thick slab of cold foam. Following that is a faux leather or woven fabric cover. Completing the build is a suite of rich ergonomic features. These let you customize your seating experience as you desire. Here are the feature highlights:

Secretlab has its own patent-pending cold-cured foam mix and foaming process. It produces a material that delivers consistent, highly-durable firmness.

Even after five years of full-time use, you can expect your chair's padding to look and feel like new.

Titan 2020 Series foam padding
Secretlab's cold-cured foam provides consistent, ultra-durable firmness over long sitting periods.

Be warned: those accustomed to chairs with soft, fluffy padding might find Secretlab seats unreasonably firm. According to Secretlab, firm foam is necessary to help a seated body maintain good posture.

When the padding is too soft, the body can easily fall out of balance, placing undue stress on the spine and surrounding muscles.

Secretlab chairs come in both faux leather and woven fabric designs. There are 31 leather designs, but only four fabric ones. Both types of upholstery have advantages.

Secretlab leather versus fabric
Choose from 31 leather designs or four breathable fabric ones.
  • Prime 2.0 PU leather: this luxurious faux leather is buttery-soft and odor-free. It's a premium, breathable blend that will stay cool over long sessions in hot weather. Prime 2.0 PU leather is more visually striking than fabric, and a lot easier to clean.
  • Softweave fabric: it's more breathable than PU leather, and a lot more durable. On the downside, PU leather looks flashier. Softweave is a tightly-woven short-yarn designed to maintain high-tensile strength over long periods. To enhance comfort, a grinding process then renders the weave into a soft, fluffy texture.

Secretlab Titan back support angle adjustments

All three Secretlab chairs include these features:

  • Adjustable lumbar support: Titan and Titan XL chairs have a depth-adjustable internal lumbar. Omega chairs come with a memory foam lumbar support pillow.
  • Armrests: 4-directional adjustability; comes with chrome metal plating and firm PU plastic caps. The armrests caps are very firm with only slight give.
  • Backrest recline: back recline from 90° to 165°; forward-tilt from 90-85 degrees.
  • Seat angles: rocking and locking function; multi-angle tilt-lock (lock the seat in 12 different angled positions).
  • Headrest: memory foam headrest with cooling gel; insert and soft velour cover.

The forward recline of the backrest to 85° is a nice touch that few other chairs offer.

Secretlab Titan seat and backrest recline angles
L-R: deep recline to 165°; seat angle tilt-lock engaged; forward-angled backrest.

For intense computer work or gaming, many people tend to lean forward in their chairs. With Secretlab chairs, you can angle the backrest to 85° to support your body when you lean.

Secretlab chair models

This section takes a closer look at each of the three chairs in the Secretlab collection. There are three differences between the Titan and Omega. First, the Titan (and Titan XL) support larger sizes. Second, both Titan chairs come with an internal lumbar support system.

Secretlab TItan vs Omega chair differences
The Titan chairs have flat, wide seats and internal lumbar support systems.

Third, Omega seats have bladed edges that restrict leg movement. Titan editions differ with flat, wide seats providing enough room to sit cross-legged.

For a closer look at the differences, check our Secretlab Omega vs Titan chair comparison feature.

Secretlab Omega

Price: $359-$419

The Secretlab Omega is a compact gaming chair for slim, average-sized bodies. Its snug dimensions combined with Secretlab’s ultra-firm padding deliver superb back support.

Secretlab Omega 2020 Series gaming chairs
The Omega comes in a range of PU leather and mesh fabric designs.

Average-sized users can choose between the Omega or the larger Titan. If you prioritize comfort and legroom, choose a Titan. But with more free space, there’s a greater chance of sitting with sloppy posture.

Secretlab Omega seat padding

As a result, those who prioritize a healthy posture while sitting should choose an Omega. Its padding and contoured edges keep your muscles relaxed, with your arms supported and your head in perfect position.

Buy the Omega FOR $359-$419

Available from Secretlab for buyers in North America, the UK, Europe, Singapore, Malaysia, Oceania, and South Korea.

Key Omega qualities

The Omega is a compact chair that provides a snug fit with body-hugging dimensions. Its seat has bladed edges designed to restrict leg movement. The point is to provide a key pillar of support to power a straight posture.

Secretlab Omega features
Omega chairs have a narrow padded seat, memory foam support pillows and 4D armrests.

With feet constrained, the natural reaction is to plant them firmly. That provides the power to maintain a healthy posture while sitting.

Omega sizing specs

The Omega is our top-ranked gaming chair for small sizes. Users taller than 5’9″ who prefer a roomier fit should consider a Titan chair.

  • Seat width & depth: 22″ (W) x 20″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 32″ (H) x 21″
  • Size rating: people 5’3″ to 5’11” tall; up to 240 pounds

Omega advice

Most gaming chairs with lumbar support pillows take a while to get used to. That’s because most have small lumbar pillows that need to fit just right. In comparison, the Omega’s is a velour-covered block of memory foam.

Omega chair narrow seat limitations
Omega chairs keep the legs constrained to encourage users into neutral sitting positions.

All you need to do is chuck the pillow behind you and then lean back into your Omega chair. The memory foam will compress around your lower back while filling your lumbar curve with soft foam. That provides gentle resistance to power a straight upper back.

At the same time, the bladed seat edges keep the legs constrained. Combined, slight lumbar pressure plus planted feet makes it easy (and comfortable) to sit with a healthy posture. For a detailed look at the Omega chair, check out this review:

Detailed Secretlab Omega review

The Omega comes 25 different styles made with PU leather chair, mesh fabric or genuine NAPA leather. Buy from $359 direct from Secretlab.

Secretlab Titan

Price: $399 to $459

The Titan is (in my opinion) Secretlab’s best gaming chair. Like the Omega, it comes in 26 style variants, including four fabric models.

Secretlab Titan esports chairs
The Secretlab Titan is our top-rated Pro esports chair.

It’s a large chair with a flat, wide, seat and spacious (but not cavernous) dimensions. Secretlab rates the chair for users from 5’9″ to 6’7 tall; up to 290 pounds.

Key Titan qualities

The Titan’s standout feature is its depth-adjustable lumbar support system. This feature rivals the adjustable lumbar systems on $1000+ ergonomic task chairs. Turn the knob on the side of the backrest to increase or decrease lumbar depth. Doing so gives you precision and depth control well beyond what a conventional lumbar pillow offers.

Secretlab Titan lumbar support
The Titan’s internal lumbar support delivers firm, consistent support to your lower back.

It’s also a lot more comfortable than a lumbar pillow. Play around with various depths until you find your sweet spot. That will deliver firm, gentle pressure into your lower back as you sit.

Titan and Omega: wide versus narrow seat style
Omega seats have bladed edges, while Titan seats are flat and wide. (click to enlarge)

The other notable feature of this chair is its flat, wide seat. Most gaming chairs use bladed edges to keep the legs together. In a Titan chair, there are no limits. You can sit with legs splayed, or even cross-legged.

Buy the Titan for $399-$459

Available from Secretlab for buyers in North America, the UK, Europe, Singapore, Malaysia, Oceania, and South Korea.

Titan sizing specs

Those shorter than 5’9″ (175 cm) will find the Titan’s back support mediocre. The support is depth-adjustable, but not height-adjustable. As a result, users under 175 cm will find that the support hits too high, causing discomfort instead of support.

  • Seat width & depth: 20.5″ (W) x 19.7″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 33″ (H) x 21.7″ (W)
  • Size rating: people 5’9″ to 6’7 tall; up to 290 pounds

Conversely, users 5’9″ and up will enjoy the lumbar support’s full potential. I stand 5’9″ (177 cm) and find that it fits perfectly. But if I were an inch shorter, it wouldn’t.

Titan advice

The Secretlab Titan is one of the best gaming chairs in the world. It powers several of the world’s top esports teams. For 1/3 the price of a Herman Miller chair, this chair can power your computing needs as it does for the pros.

Secretlab Titan XL

Price: $454 to $499

The Titan XL is 25% bigger than the Secretlab Titan. Aside from the super-sized dimensions, both models are exactly the same. it’s the exact same chair as the Titan.

Secretlab Titan Xl extra large sizing details

The Titan XL also has an internal lumbar system, 4D armrests, multifunction tilt-lock, and other features common to Secretlab chairs. It differs from other Secretlab chairs in three ways.

Secretlab Titan XL upholstery styles
Titan XL chairs come in two leather designs and three Softweave fabric ones.

First, there are only five XL versions to choose from: three fabric models and two leather ones. Second, with limited design options, XL chairs usually sell fast. As a result, they sometimes go out of stock. Third, the TItan XL isn’t available in New Zealand or Malaysia stores.

Buy the Titan XL from $539 to $559

Available from Secretlab for big and tall buyers in America, Canada, the UK, Europe, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand.

Titan XL Sizing

This is a chair for heavy bodies with thick legs and wide hips. Because they carry more weight, heavy people suffer worse effects from poor posture. The Titan XL is a healthy solution to that problem.

This chair will support long periods of comfortable sitting. At the same time, it will help you maintain a healthy posture. The result is less stress on the neck, back, hips, legs, and joints.

With less stress on your body, your brain’s cognitive abilities improve. That’s why the world’s top esports players use gaming chairs for training.

  • Seat width & depth: 22.6″ x 19.9″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 33.5″ (H), 22″ (W)
  • Size rating: 5’11” to 6’10” and up to 390 pounds

Titan XL

The Secretlab Titan XL is a very versatile chair for heavyweights. Use it for PC computing, gaming, or even as a living room chair. Having one around can provide heavy bodies with relief under various conditions.

Spacious Titan XL
The Titan XL is for heavyweights wanting high-end comfort and support.

The combination of dense padding, a tall backrest, and an internal lumbar provides the key to crisp and effective back support. Turn a dial on the side to expand or deflate the lumbar support into the small of your back. Then lean into the backrest. Doing so will put your hips, spine, and upper body muscles into a healthy sitting alignment.

Secretlab Titan XL lumbar support
The internal lumbar provides greater precision and depth control than a pillow.

With a consistent, healthy sitting posture, benefits include boosted energy levels and greater productivity.

Detailed Secretlab Titan XL Review

The Secretlab Titan XL is available for $454 to $499 from Secretlab. There are two PU leather options and three Softweave fabric ones.

Titan and Omega style options

Secretlab Titan and Omega chairs come in 34 leather or fabric design styles. This section summarizes the best design options for all models.

Prime 2.0 Premium PU leather is the most well-rounded and popular option. This material is soft and flexible with a premium leather feel. It’s also durable, resistant to liquids, and fairly easy to clean with a damp cloth or vacuum.

Closeup of Secretlab Prime 2.0 PU leather

SoftWeave Fabric is a custom upholstery blend of premium 350gsm short yarn. This material has a softer, cozier feel than PU leather. It’s also the most breathable blend — no matter how long you sit, your Softweave chair will stay cool.
Closeup of Secretlab Softweave chair fabric
Softweave strands are woven together for high-tensile strength. That ensures the fabric doesn’t lose form, even after a couple of years of use.

The downside of Softweave is that it’s you need to be more careful drinking coffee, wine, or grape juice. Stains will ruin the look of these chairs! To clean, use a vacuum or damp cloth with a commercial fabric cleaner.

Standard PU leather designs

There are five standard leather designs. These come in 2-tone color schemes with a Titan or Omega symbol plus the Secretlab logo on the front and back.

Titan PU leather color choices
There are five standard leather Titan and Omega designs.

These models offer a sleek, executive style well-suited to both a gaming room and a boardroom. Consider these models if you prefer a more muted, conservative style.

Omega base designs: $359 | Titan base designs: $399 | Titan XL: $479

Softweave fabric

Softweave chairs are breathable, durable, and very comfortable to sit in for long periods. Many customers clamor for more Softweave design options. At present, both the Titan and Omega come in just four different styles.

Secretlab Titan Softweave gaming chairs
Softweave chairs: Pink; Ash; Black; Cookies and Cream.

Softweave models are a little more expensive than PU leather ones, and also more luxurious. The soft, breathable fabric is pleasant to the touch and always stays cool. The material is also pet-friendly and easy to clean with a damp cloth.

Who are Secretlab chairs for?

Secretlab chairs are ergonomic. That is, they adapt to the needs of the user, rather than the user having to adapt to the chair. They are also comfortable and support good posture. Several studies show that good posture has a positive effect on mood, energy levels and even the ability to concentrate.

By the same logic, with poor sitting posture, users tend to suffer stiffness, pain, varicose veins, and worse.

The fact is that everyone can benefit from using these chairs. To prove that point, Secretlab has made pro esports team partnerships a priority.

Full-time esports pros

Many of the world’s top pro esports teams use Secretlab chairs. Most teams have licensed chairs in both Omega and Titan variants.

Secretlab Titan for pro esports
Secretlab PC chairs power some of the world’s biggest esports teams and tournaments.

Pro esports players work under stressful, mentally taxing conditions. A typical training day lasts 10-12 hours. During that time players will engage in solo play, team play, and conference calls. Pro-level gameplay demands lightning-fast reflexes and rapid-fire decision-making.

This is how Secretlab proved the value of their chairs, for the whole world to see.

Here’s what the pros have to say about Secretlab chairs:

  • G2 Esports: “…unmatched quality and comfort…”
  • Sk Telecom (T1): “the quality of their product is unparalleled…”
  • Team Secret: “… they’re perfect for long hours of training…”
  • Cloud9: “After trying their chairs out, we immediately understood what the fuss was about.”

REVIEW: all Secretlab pro esports team chairs

General computer users

What’s the difference between a professional esports player and an office worker? Both sit full-time in front of a computer for a living.

But esports players tend to work longer hours under more intense conditions. So if Secretlab chairs can meet the needs of the pros, imagine what they can do for the average computer user.

Secretlab chairs for office workers
Secretlab chairs offer pro support for everyone who spends long periods sitting.

If you are a pro esports player, rest assured that these chairs will meet your needs. If you’re a run-of-the-mill desk jockey, these chairs will exceed your needs.

So why not get the same level of comfort and support that the pros use? Doing so will let any computer user sit longer, work smarter and be more productive.
