Secretlab launched as a 2-man Singapore startup in 2014. Six years later, it is the unquestioned gaming chair industry leader. The company offers the most advanced seating technology in the business. As proof of its quality, it also partners with the world’s most high-profile names in esports. Here, you will find a complete overview of the Secretlab gaming chair brand.
Secretlab is the hottest name in work-from-home seating. When lockdowns first hit in 2020, demand for Secretlab gaming chairs skyrocketed.
But it wasn’t only video game players buying Secretlab chairs. Lockdowns also produced a surge of interest among home-based office workers.
Ultimate Work-From-Home Seating
Once, Herman Miller was the first brand many would think of as the ultimate computer chair. However, the shift to working from home has changed the equation.
For instance, you can’t nap in an office setting. But when working from home, you can take ‘micro-naps’. Herman Miller chairs aren’t equipped for that — Secretlab chairs are.
On top of that, Secretlab chairs cost 1/3 of what the best Herman Miller office chairs cost.
As a result, in 2021, ‘Secretlab’ is the first brand many will think of as ultimate work-from-home seating.
At present, both 2022 and 2020 Series chairs are available. For a detailed hands-on comparison, see this Titan 2022 vs 2022 Series Review. Find below quick rundowns of each collection:
2022 Titan EVO Series
Secretlab is the only gaming chair brand with scheduled version upgrades. Every three years (on average), the company releases an upgrade over previous versions.
The 2022 Series is the latest incarnation. It phases out the Omega chair and Titan XL chairs. Instead, the new Titan EVO 2022 Series comes in small, medium, and XL sizes:
|Titan EVO Small||2022 Series Medium||2022 Series XL|
|Seat||17.7" (W) x 18.9" (D)||18.5" (W) x 19.3" (D)||19.3" (W) x 19.7" (D)|
|Backrest||20" (W) x 32.3" (H)||21" (W) x 33.5" (H)||22" (W) x 35" (H)|
|Seat height||17.7" to 20.5"||17.7" to 20.5"||18.1" to 21.9"|
|Size rating||4'11" to 5'6"; 285 pounds||5'7" to 6'2"; 285 pounds||5'11" to 6'9"; 395 pounds|
With streamlined sizing, there’s a 2022 Series Titan EVO for all sizes between 4’11” and 6’7″. If you want more space, it’s also possible to supersize up, but only in certain cases. See this guide for details:
Titan EVO features
Beyond the new sizing, the Titan 2022 Series also comes with several big upgrades. For a complete analysis, see this Titan EVO 2022 Series Review. Here are the highlights:
4-Way L-ADAPT Lumbar Support System
The 2020 Series Titan came with a depth-adjustable integrated lumbar. The Titan EVO advances integrated technology with depth and height adjustability.
Use the two dials on the sides of the chair to customize your back support with precision. Turn the left knob to adjust the height; position it to fill your lower back curve. Then, toggle the right dial to adjust the depth of support.
Magnetic Headrest System
Instead of straps, the 2022 Series Titan’s headrest affixes to the backrest with magnets. Without the limitation of straps, users enjoy a massive adjustment range.
The range of adjustment is from the top of the “T” to the upper edge of the backrest. That provides plenty of room to position the headrest perfectly.
Pebble Seat Base With Waterfall Edge
The 2020 Series collection featured chairs with both flat and bladed seat styles. The 2022 Series combines both concepts into a new “pebble seat base.”
The improved seat base provides enough width to accommodate different sitting positions. At the same time, gently sloping side wings help guide the user toward the middle of the seat. As a result, users enjoy improved ergonomic support without restrictive bladed edges.
Summary of 2022 Series features
See this Secretlab Titan EVO 2022 Series Review for a closer look at every feature. Summary:
- Functionality: 4D armrests; multifunction tilt-lock; recline from 85-165°.

2020 Omega, Titan, Titan XL Series
Until stocks run out, 2020 Series chairs are still available for slightly less than 2022 Series chairs. The 2020 Series comes in Omega (small), Titan, and Titan XL models.
The Omega differs from Titan chairs on two fronts. First, it has bladed seat edges, while Titan seats are flat. Second, the Omega comes with a memory foam lumbar pillow. In comparison, the Titan chairs come with a depth-adjustable integrated lumbar.
Each Secretlab model has different dimensions, ranging from small to extra-large:
|Omega (S)||Titan (L)||Titan XL|
|Size rating||5'3" to 5'11"; 240 pounds||5'9" to 6'7"; 290 pounds||5'11" to 6'10"; 390 pounds|
|Functionality||4D armrests; seat angle tilt-lock; backrest recline from 85° to 165°.||Same functionality as the Omega.||Same as the Omega.|
|Back support||Adjustable neck and lumbar pillows.||Internal lumbar + adjustable neck pillow.||Same as the Titan.|
|Price||$359 to $389||$399 to $429||$479 to $499|
2020 Series improvements
2020 Series upgrades were focused on improving padding, durability, and overall luxury. In total, 2020 Series chairs got 20 upgraded features over 2018 models.
- Extended warranty, up from two years to five years (best in the industry).
- Improved Prime 2.0 PU leather blend that’s four times more durable than the previous leather.
- Upgraded cold cure foam padding (better resistance and durability); 65 kg/m³ density.
- Revamped full-metal 4-directional armrests.
All three 2020 Series 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.
2020 Series chairs should be available until the end of this year. These are cheaper than the newer models, and still beloved by many. If a particular 2020 Series style isn’t available in your area, reach out to Secretlab and they will likely be able to help.
All Secretlab 2020 and 2022 Series chairs come with a three-year warranty. There’s also an easy way to extend the warranty to five years.
Simply post a photo of your chair on social media and share it with Secretlab. For details, check out Secretlab’s Redeem Program.

Titan EVO 2022 Series style options
2022 Series chairs come with upgraded leatherette and fabric upholsteries. This covers both types, plus some other notable leatherette designs.
Neo Hybrid Leatherette stock designs
At its Singapore HQ, Secretlab runs a dedicated development lab. In-house, the company does rigorous development to keep improving the quality of its faux leather formulas.
Neo Hybrid leatherette is four times more durable than 2020 Series PU leather. It uses a new method that bonds a resin top laminate onto a base layer. That goes through a finishing process to render the material into an ultra-smooth top hide.
The end result has the rich, smooth, lustrous feel of genuine NAPA leather. At present, there are 29 Neo Hybrid Leatherette models available. Beyond several specialty designs, there are five stock leatherette classics.
Available from Secretlab in North America, the EU and UK, Oceania, Singapore, and Malaysia.
Softweave Plus fabric
The 2020 Softweave Series was the best fabric gaming chair collection on the market for a few years. Titan EVO SoftWeave Plus chairs take over the top spot with some big improvements. The new material is softer, more durable, and also more visually complex.
To blow past the competition, Secretlab devised a brand-new advanced technical knitting process. Instead of a straight weave, it interlaces loops of resilient yarn fibers. That improves airflow to enhance breathability.
The new method process also allows smaller detailing into every stitch. That allows designers to craft complex, multi-layered textiles with color layers. At present, the 2022 Series has six SoftWeave Plus fabric editions.
You can see this technology on display on each 2022 Series SoftWeave design. Each adds an extra pop of personality with 3D gradient layers on the side wings.
For a closer look at each design, see this Titan EVO SoftWeave Gaming Chair review.
Available from Secretlab in North America, Europe, the UK, Oceania, Singapore, and Malaysia.
2020 Series SoftWeave Designs
2020 Series SoftWeave chairs only came in four styles. The SoftWeave Triple Black and Cookies and Cream editions are also part of the 2022 Series. In contrast, the Pink D.Va and Blue Charcoal chairs have been discontinued.
Luckily, 2020 SoftWeave designs should still be available for a few more months. Click below to view 2020 Series versions on the Secretlab site:
Pro esports team chairs
Secretlab partners with many of the top pro esports teams in the world. Some partner chairs (like the 100 Thieves edition) aren’t available for public sale. In the 2022 Series lineup, there are 7 available models as of this writing:
All 2022 Series models come in small, medium, and large sizes. Check out this Secretlab Pro Esports Team Chair Review for a closer look at each design.
League of Legends chairs
League of Legends is one of the world’s most popular esports games. Secretlab has been partnered with the game’s publisher Riot Games for over two years. There are now eight chairs in the Secretlab League of Legends collection.
The most recent League of Legends trio is a Ruination Series. It has designs featuring Miss Fortune, Pyke, and Viego, the Ruined King himself.
Like all Secretlab LoL designs, the Viego edition features intricate detailing. The Blade of the Ruined King adorns the front in brilliant green embroidery. On the other side, find the Ruined King’s crown set against ominous wisps of black mist.
For a detailed look at all eight designs, see this League of Legends and K/DA chair review.
Game of Thrones chairs
Gaming of Thrones season 8 was a big letdown for many. Even so, legions of fans around the world continue to reminisce about the high points of the show. As evidence of that, Secretlab’s Game of Thrones chairs are still very popular.
As a result, all three models have been carried over to the 2022 Series. Choose between House Stark, House Targaryen, and House Lannister.
For a closer look at each design, see this Secretlab Game of Thrones review. There, you’ll also find an Iron Throne edition only available as 2020 Series versions.
Who are Secretlab chairs for?
Like standard ergonomic office chairs, Secretlab chairs support healthy posture over long periods of sitting. One limitation of ergonomic office chairs is a limited recline. Most are designed to keep users upright in formal, corporate-style postures.
The tall, padded, backrest, deep recline, and seat tilting functionality give Secretlab chairs a lot more versatility. Working in an office, sitting upright across strict shifts is reasonable.
Working from home, it’s possible to spread out your workday. When working, set your chair in an upright position. When reading or relaxing, deepen the recline.
That means you can enjoy all-day support in a Secretlab chair better than you can in an office-style one. Given the new Titan 2022 Series sizing, this support suits all WFH computer users from ages 12 and up.
Among the top-50 esports teams of all time, more partner with Secretlab than any other chair brand. Among desk-workers, pro esports players are among the hardest workers.
Typical players spend 10-12 hours training every day. Training sessions require peak performance with blazing reflexes and up to 400 actions per minute. Secretlab chairs provide comfort and posture support to help these players stay sharp.
In both corporate and work-from-home settings, these chairs are also ideal for office workers. For one thing, no other gaming chair has more advanced features than the Titan EVO.
For another thing, few models on the market come with a 5-year warranty. What’s more, no other chair comes in as many styles as the Titan EVO does. On top of everything, the Titan is actually cheaper than other top-rated pro esports chairs.
There are plenty of pro-quality gaming chairs out there, but none at this level. Check out our review review to see for yourself why the Titan is the best for pros:
Students aged 12 and up
A sudden shift to home-based schooling forced many to study on a sofa, floor, or bed. That resulted in a surge of lower back injuries.
One ergonomist gave the Advisory Board a technical cause. Working without the right support means people are unable to hold a neutral position. Luckily, all gaming chairs are specifically designed to support neutral sitting postures.
Using average sizes of Wisconsin students, the Titan EVO small version fits ages 12 and up.
In normal conditions, a student would only use a gaming chair part-time. After school, they’d spend a few hours using it to play video games or do homework.
However, in case of further lockdowns, extended schooling from home is likely. Then, a small-sized Titan EVO chair would be a smart investment on two fronts. First, it assures a young, developing body of perfect posture support over long periods of sitting.
Second, with superior durability and a 5-year warranty, a Titan EVO would last a 12-year old into their late teens. For these reasons, the Titan EVO ranks as the best gaming chair in the business for small sizes.
If you’re indifferent about your child’s seating, you can buy a cheap gaming chair for less than $150. But if you’re serious about giving them the best tools to succeed, the Titan EVO is the best choice. See this review to learn more:
Serious video game players
It’s worth paying a premium gaming chair if you sit full-time. For those who only need support for a few hours a day, paying a premium might be overkill. Over part-time hours, a cheap gaming chair provides sufficient support.
On the flipside, hard-core gamers who spend full-time hours sitting at a desk need look no further. As Secretlab supports professional gamers, it can also support aspiring pros.
Will a Secretlab chair make you a better gamer? Not directly. However, it will keep you comfortable for long hours of gameplay. At the same time, it will align your spine and help you to develop healthy posture habits.
With good posture habits, you’ll feel more energetic and alert. As a bonus, your brain will also work more efficiently.
While a Secretlab chair won’t help you win a game, it will ensure that you’re rested, relaxed, and fully focused. As a result, you’ll be able to train longer and perform better.

Stock traders, hobbyists, and casuals
We’ve tracked a few different use cases on ChairsFX.com. Here’s a quick rundown:
Secretlab chairs for home stock traders
Fans of stock trading will know the name DeepF**kingValue. He’s a home-based trader using a Secretlab Lannister edition as his battle chair.
His advice led to the GameStop stocks scandal, which cost big banks billions while making small investors rich. Chiming in on the story is Jordan Belfort (Wolf of Wall Street) in a Titan NAPA leather chair. Check out the chairs used by top stock traders.
Secretlab chairs for hobby gamers
A lot of pro athletes are hobby gamers on the side. Some also stream on Twitch using Secretlab chairs. For instance, Dele Alli (English footballer) uses a Titan Stealth edition.
Baseball pitcher Blake Snell (2018 Cy Young winner and avid streamer) uses a Titan Dark Knight Batman edition.
Other casual home users
When confined largely to your home for long periods, proper seating becomes a priority. When used for long periods, soft sofas are bad for your back. The softer the padding, the worse the support.
Thus, anyone who spends long hours sitting at a computer from home can benefit from using a Secretlab chair. Lying in bed all day will give you bedsores. Sitting on a sofa all day will ruin your back.
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.
Secretlab makes the best gaming chairs in the industry. The company’s global shipping operation is also the most advanced. As a result, you can buy direct from Secretlab in North America, the EU and UK, Oceania, and Southeast Asia.
In all regions, customers can order online and have chairs delivered to their door.The unboxing and assembly process is a joy. Rolling your assembled chair up to your desk for the first time will ascend your workstation aesthetics to a higher level.
