Who this product is for

The Noblechairs EPIC is designed to fit people between 5’4 and and 6’4 (165 to 195 centimeters) and support up to 330 pounds (150 kg). Of course the primary benefit of a gaming chair is to promote good posture while seated for long hours. To that end, the Noblechairs EPIC works perfectly.

If you are willing to pay a premium for higher quality materials and manufacturing, both the genuine leather and PU leather options are worth considering. Expect a gaming chair that looks great and more importantly makes you feel great.

What we like

The Noblechairs EPIC gaming chair is designed in Germany, made in China, and built using the highest quality materials. The wheel base 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.

Photographed the right way, this looks like a chair for Kings.

The only thing we could come up with is the lumbar and neck cushions. Their quality is great and they work as they should. However, notice that most promotional images of the EPIC are taken without the cushions, which makes them look like works of art.

The pillows support posture, but ruin the sleek look.

With the cushions in place (which are necessary for proper ergonomic support), the EPIC looks less spectacular – an internal lumbar mechanism (like that found on the Secretlab Titan) would make a huge styling difference.

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.

Noblechairs ICON
