Noblechairs EPIC overview
This section breaks down the pros and cons of the Noblechairs EPIC gaming chair.
Key EPIC features
The Noblechairs EPIC is a good looking chair. The above pictured PU leather models come with tiny perforations to enhance breathability. Those models also come with diamond-pattern stitching in the lumbar and seating areas. On the sides, strips of suede give the chair stylish but subtle accents.
- Functionality: 4D armrests; recline to 135°; 11° seat angle tilt-lock.
- Build: steel frame, 5-point aluminium base, 60mm smooth rolling casters.
- Comfort: cold foam padding; neck & lumbar support pillows.

The Noblechairs EPIC is designed to fit people between 5’5″ and and 6’2″ (164 to 189 centimeters). It supports up to 265 pounds (120 kg).
Here’s how it stacks up to the other Noblechairs models:
|Seat width & depth||22" (W) x 22.2" (D)"||20.3" (W) x 19.3" (D)||20.5" (W) x 21.7" (D)|
|Backrest height and width||34.2" (H), 21.4"||33.8" (H), 20.5"||35" (H), 22.5" (W)|
|Overall height||51.6" to 55.5"||49.8" to 53.7"||51" to 54"|
|Weight support||Up to 265 pounds||Up to 330 pounds||Up to 330 pounds|
|Height support||5'5" to 6'2"||5'5" to 6'4"||5'5" to 6'4"|
Notice that the EPIC is the tallest chair with the widest seat. However, it supports the least amount of height and weight. That’s because it actually provides less seating room than the HERO and ICON models.
The EPIC seat differs from other Noblechairs models by using a classic racing chair design. The ridged edges restrict leg movement to ensure optimal ergonomics. That’s great for your back, but some gamers prefer having enough room to cross their legs. If so, check out the extra wide HERO or ICON models.
Likes and dislikes
The Noblechairs EPIC is a high-end model that ranks among the best gaming chairs in the world. This section takes a look at what’s to like and dislike about this product.
What we like
The Noblechairs EPIC gaming chair features classy German design and high-quality materials. The wheelbase is solid and the casters roll smoothly. The gas lift works as it should, and the entire package feels very sturdy. In addition, the perforated diamond-stitched design looks sublime.
What we don’t like
The Noblechairs EPIC is an incredible gaming chair. Outside of the premium pricing, it’s hard to find flaws in this masterpiece.
The main negative is the 2-year warranty. This is standard for luxury chairs, but some models offer 5-year warranties. The EPIC is for people willing to pay a premium price for a gaming chair. If it had a 5-year warranty like Secretlab and AKRacing, the price would be easier to justify.
Other Noblechairs models
Because of the popularity of the EPIC model, Noblechairs has since expanded their line to include two even more luxurious models. Both have similar features to the ICON with some enhanced luxury features and specialized support for large-sized users. See how all three models compare in our Noblechairs brand review.
This spinoff of the Epic features a modified backrest design. It also differs with larger dimensions, supporting users up to 6’4″ weighing up to 330 pounds. This model serves as the middle ground between the slim-fit EPIC and extra-wide HERO.
The HERO model borrows much of the same elements as the EPIC, with two key differences. First, it has larger seat and backrest dimensions. Second, it comes with an innovative internal lumbar support system. Like the ICON, it supports large sizes up to 6’4″ weighing up to 330 pounds. Read our the detailed Noblechairs Hero review.
