Secretlab fabric gaming chair review
There are seven chairs in the 2022 Series SoftWeave Plus collection.

The Titan 2022 Series is the latest iteration of Secretlab’s flagship gaming chair. In the new collection are six SoftWeave Plus fabric gaming chairs.

SoftWeave Plus is an advanced technical knit using interlacing loops of high-strength yarn fibers. It has two advantages. First, it’s 3.5 times more durable than 2020 Series fabric.

Second, it also allows for unprecedented control over every thread and pixel in a design. No other gaming chair brand offers such nuanced control over its fabric designs.

In the 2022 Series, Secretlab shows off this technology on all SoftWeave Plus chairs. Each design includes a 3D layered gradient on the left and right side wings. There are six styles to choose from:

  1. SoftWeave Plus Titan EVO Triple Black
  2. Titan EVO 2022 Series Cookies and Cream
  3. SoftWeave Plus Titan EVO Arctic White
  4. Titan EVO 2022 Series Plush Pink
  5. SoftWeave Plus Titan EVO Frost Blue
  6. Titan EVO 2022 Series Mint Green
  7. Titan EVO 2022 Series Overwatch D.Va

All models also come packed with upgraded 2022 Series features. Find below reviews of the new SoftWeave Plus designs and 2022 Series functionality.

2022 Series SoftWeave Plus Designs

Each 2022 SoftWeave Plus design combines multiple layers with varying shades. For instance, the Cookies and Cream chair combines black, white, and various grey shades.

SoftWeave Plus chairs come with 3D gradient detailing on the side wings.

The finished product adds a pop of personality to a workstation. As you look closer, the detailing reveals even greater complexity.

Here’s a look at each of the six SoftWeave Plus designs now available:

Triple Black

The Triple Black chair fuses three shades of black threads into a nuanced finish. That delivers an executive design with a dynamic pop.

2022 Series SoftWeave Triple Black chair

According to Secretlab, the stylish symmetry is designed to reflect the urban streetwear style of modern gamers. I’ve spent a few months testing a 2020 Series Triple Black.

Secretlab SoftWeave Triple Black fabric

It integrates well into all types of workstations, with some unique twists. Under darker lighting, it has a more ominous look.

From a distance, the material looks textured. Up close, it feels smooth to the touch. From certain angles, it resembles 80s-style acid-wash denim.

In both colorful and executive environments, a Triple Black will blend in seamlessly. If you can’t decide which color to choose, consider Triple Black as a failsafe default pick.

Cookies and Cream

Cookies and Cream is the original Secretlab SoftWeave Design. The old version has a smoother look that varied between beige and grey depending on the lighting.

Titan EVO Cookies and Cream gaming chair

The 2022 Series blends loops of white, black, and various greyscale yarn fibers. That yields a steel-grey effect with dynamic qualities.

Tiny flecks of white, black, and grey jostle for attention. Under different lighting conditions or angles, you’ll always get a unique look.

The gradient effects also stand out on the side wings and seat edges. These add depth and complexity to the design to keep your brain guessing.

Titan EVO 2022 Series Cookies and Cream fabric gaming chair

On one hand, the overall effect invokes a feeling of soothing calm. But on a micro-level, the gradients and multicolored looping fibers connote dynamic activity.

The net effect is like drinking a shandy. It’s cool, and refreshing, with a tiny buzz that keeps things interesting.

Arctic White

One of the joys of a pure white gaming chair is its reflective qualities. At a workstation with RGB lighting, a white chair comes alive when reflecting colors.

SoftWeave Plus Arctice White gaming chair

The problem is that stark white is very bright, which can be hard on the eyes. Secretlab’s Article White SoftWeave Plus solves this issue. It fuses several pale shades into a steely-blue finish with pure white specs.

SoftWeave Fabric Arctic White gaming chair seat

That delivers a stunning off-white effect that’s easy on the eyes but also stimulating. From a distance, the gradients add visual complexity. As you draw closer, the white flecks add a shimmering quality.

Under RGB lighting, this design absorbs colors, with hints of diamond glitter. The jewelled effect resembles sunshine reflecting off a body of water.

Plush Pink

Plush Pink replaces the 2020 Series D.Va edition as the world’s only pink fabric gaming chair. The former design’s soothing bubblegum hue was a hit, but its gaudy video game decals were jarring.

The Plush Pink design continues the soothing theme, without the flashy extras. Several shades of pink mixed with flecks of white delivers a smooth hue with a calming finish.

SoftWeave Fabric Plush Pink gaming chair seat

This design serves as a reminder that pink has unisex appeal. For instance, a Plush Pink chair can serve as the perfect centerpiece in a teen girl’s pink bedroom. It could also remind people of a gruff male executive’s urban hip-hop influences.

Like the 2020 Series D.Va chair, we predict this model will be a hit among all genders. Rather than girliness, Plush Pink connotes colorful trendiness with an urban edge.

Frost Blue

Cool colors like green and blue reflect less light while giving off a calming effect. Secretlab’s Frost Blue ramps up the coolness factor with a scintillating pastel design.

SoftWeave Fabric Frost Blue gaming chair

Blue threads of varied saturation plus white flecks deliver a glimmering, icy-cool effect. It resembles the Artic White edition, but with an even frostier effect.

SoftWeave Fabric Frost Blue gaming chair seat

In general, pastel colors are soft, soothing, low saturation hues. Common pastels include blue, mint, lavender, and lilac. Pastel blue hit the mainstream during the Miami Vice era. Today, it’s a staple in contemporary interior design.

On a 2022 Series chair, pastel blue also delivers a hyper-modern contemporary look. It’s sleek and attractive, with baked-in soothing qualities.

Mint Green

We predict that Mint Green SoftWeave chairs will become one of the stars of the new collection. This color has soothing, restful qualities and recalls nature. It’s also one of the hottest hues on the fashion scene.

SoftWeave Fabric Mint Green gaming chair

Green fits in the center of the color spectrum and serves as a key color of balance. It strikes the eyes in a way that needs no adjustment. That makes it restful on a sensory level.

In nature, green connotes an abundance of food and water. As a result, it also delivers reassurance on a primal level.

SoftWeave Fabric Mint Green gaming chair seat

Secretlab’s Mint Green fuses different shades of green fibers with white ones. It’s a positive, upbeat design with fresh minty vibes.

By some accounts, mint green is one of the hottest trends of 2021. “It makes us feel like we’ve gone to the spa for a really nice massage and bubble bath… resulting in a huge wave of calm washing over us. … this is exactly the energy we need right now!”

Overwatch D.Va Edition

In the Overwatch video game, monsters attack. Skilled gamers get called in to pilot mech defenders. South Korean gamer Hanna Song pilots Tokki, a nimble mech with fierce abilities.

Overwatch Pink D.va chair

In battle, Tokki blasts twin fusion canons that autofire at short range. When the time is right, booster rockets barrel D.Va over enemies to launch deadly counter-attacks.

The Pink D.Va chair is one of Secretlab’s most popular designs. It’s clad in strawberry milkshake-colored pink fabric, with plenty of Overwatch enhancements.

D.Va’s logo and pink bunny icon are embroidered on the front of the chair. On the side wings are several of D.Va’s in-game decals.

Secretlab D.Va Overwatch chair

This is the only specialty SoftWeave chair in the 2022 Series collection. If you’re looking for a design with more character than the stock fabric chairs, the D.Va edition is a great choice.

Titan Pink D.Va (medium) $499

The small (4’11” to 5’6″) Pink Titan D.Va chair is also available for $499.

Integrated 3D Adjustable Lumbar Support

The 2020 Series Secretlab Titan came with integrated, depth-adjustable lumbar support. Titan EVO 2022 Series chairs improve on this with a unit that’s both depth and height adjustable.

Titan Evo 2022 Series lumbar support adjustability

Choosing a small, medium, or XL Titan will give you a basic good fit. The 2D adjustability of the new lumbar unit lets you customize the fit ever further.

Turn the dial on the left side of the chair to adjust the height of your lumbar support. Play with the settings until it hits the small of your back.

Then, toggle the depth-adjustment dial to find your sweet spot. From there, Secretlab has added a third layer of dynamic adjustability.

Back support matrix

Layered over the lumbar unit is a support matrix made of 63 adaptive hinges. These flex left or right as the user changes positions. As a result, users enjoy perfectly fitting lumbar support that dynamically responds to micro-movements.

Pebble Seat With Waterfall Edge

In the 2020 Series, Secretlab Titan chairs had flat seats, while Omega models had bladed ones. Titan EVO 2022 Series chairs combine the two styles a “proprietary pebble seat base.”

Titan 2022 Series pebble seat base

The pebble seat base has three objectives. First, its seat pan is spacious enough to accommodate various sitting positions.

Second, a gentle slope on each side helps guide the user to the middle of the seat. As a result, users enjoy plenty of legroom without restrictive bladed seat edges.

Secretlab Titan waterfall seat edge
2022 Series chairs come with a waterfall seat edge.

Third, a gentle waterfall seat slope reduces pressure on the thighs and knees. It also gives users more options to position their feet under the chair.

Magnetic Memory Foam Headrest

A choice of three sizes plus 2D-adjustable lumbar support lets you customize the fit of your TItan chair. To top things off, Secretlab raises customization to an even higher level with a refined magnetic headrest pillow.

Secretlab 2022 Series magnetic headrest pillow

The 2022 Series pillow has a more aggressive upper curve than its predecessor. That provides better support for the base of the head while sitting in a neutral posture.

It also lacks fastener straps. Instead, a magnet system holds the pillow in place, letting you adjust the pillow over a wider range.

More about Secretlab fabric gaming chairs

Still undecided if a Softweave Plus chair is right for you? This section adds more context to help you decide.

Softweave Plus vs Neo Hybrid Leatherette

As part of its 2022 Series upgrades, Secretlab has also enhanced its upholsteries. SoftWeave is an advanced technical knit that allows for precise detailing.

Secretlab NEO Hybrid Leatherette upholstery

In comparison, Neo Hybrid Leatherette uses a new bonding process. That delivers a super-smooth grain with the rich, lustrous feel of genuine leather.

SoftWeave Plus is 3.5 times more durable than its 2020 Series predecessor. Neo Hybrid Leatherette is 12 times more durable than conventional PU leather.

In-house, ChairsFX has tested both types of 2020 Series chairs in tropical conditions. Both offer superb breathability in hot weather. Thus, you can expect the 2022 Series to be even better.

Titan versus Omega chairs compared
2020 Series Omega Softweave Black vs 2020 Series Titan Stealth.

Broadly, Neo Hybrid Leatherette is easier to clean, but shows footprints. SoftWeave Plus is more breathable and softer to the touch. It’s also pet-friendly, suffering no wear and tear under dog or cat claws.

On the downside, while stain-resistant, SoftWeave Plus isn’t stain-proof. If you spill coffee or red wine on your chair, expect permanent discoloration.

SoftWeave Plus Color Theory Tips

Designers use color theory to divide colors into a spectrum of warm and cool hues. One side contains cool colors, the other side warm ones. Black, grey, and white are off the color wheel spectrum as neutral colors.

Softweave fabric chairs on the color spectrum
Softweave Plus chairs come in cool, neutral, and warm color variations.

Neutral grey mixed with blue produces a cool color. Neutral greys with a pinkish tone (such as taupe) are warm colors. Typically, greys mixed with cool colors give a room a sense of stability and calm.

Cool vs warm Secretlab SoftWeave gaming chair colors
Cool (Frost Blue) versus warm (Plush Pink) fabric chair colors.

Many studies show that different colors have unique physical effects on humans. When light strikes the retina, it converts to electrical impulses. Different hues convert into different types of inputs to the hypothalamus. That part of the brain governs body temperature, appetite, sleeping patterns, and more.

  • Warm vs cool colors: warm colors reflect more light and energy. They are known to stimulate appetites (such as McDonald’s colors) and evoke energetic optimism. In comparison, cool colors tend to stimulate creativity and a sense of calm.
  • Chromatic vs achromatic colors: achromatic (neutral) colors slow the heart rate. Chomatic (color wheel) hues increase it. Room design studies show chromatic rooms as more dynamic and attractive for working in. Meanwhile, achromatic colors give off a more formal and harmonious dynamic.

How to clean Softweave chairs

Unlike Neo Leatherette, SoftWeave fabric isn’t liquid-resistant. If you spill water on your SoftWeave chair, don’t worry about it.

However, if you spill grape juice or wine, it will definitely leave stains. If you spill soda, prepare for ants.

How to clean a Softweave fabric gaming chair

Otherwise, SoftWeave Plus maintenance is easy. Wipe down with a damp cloth every day or so. Then, run a vacuum over your chair every so often.

Spay a small amount onto a damp cloth and wipe down the chair. That will remove any light stains, while leaving your chair smelling clean and fresh.
