About the Brand

Secretlab is one of the relatively new comers in the gaming chair space, but that hasn’t stopped them from establishing their spot as one of the top players in the gaming chair space. Secretlab began in 2014, and is founded by two competitive gamers. These two gamers were experiencing strain on their backs and wrists from long hours of gaming, and when they sought out gaming chairs to help with this, they were left disappointed. This led them to found Secretlab with the idea that a gaming chair could provide maximum comfort while maintaining a reasonable price. Secretlab introduced its first gaming chair into the market in 2015, and has quickly grown and expanded from there. Since this initial start in 2015, Secretlab has continued to grow into a formidable global gaming brand. Founded and headquartered in Singapore, Secretlab today operates in the US & Canada as well as Europe, Australia, and parts of Asia. Secretlab is able to do this through the 4 model system that they currently have in their 2020 gaming chair line-up. They feature the Throne, Omega, Titan, & Titan XL models, with a host of variant possibilities and designs to give you plenty of options to choose from!

Throne Series

Secretlab Throne Series Gaming Chairs

The Throne Series is the smallest designed chair in the Secretlab line-up, designed & recommended for users between a height of 4’9” – 5’3” and a weight under 220 lbs. Just because it is designed for users on the smaller size, doesn’t mean it doesn’t come packed with great ergonomic features. Throne Series has a long list of features, listed below:

  • Upholstery Options – Choose between PRIME 2.0 PU Leather, or Softweave Fabric
    • PRIME 2.0 PU Leather is new and improved for the 2020 series of gaming chairs and is 4 times more durable than regular PU Leather. This improved design maintains the plush feel of previous models, while exceeding the industry standard for abrasion resistance, meaning you get a better material for longer
    • Softweave Fabric includes the signature Secretlab blend of fabric. The process involved in creating this fabric leaves an ultra-soft texture, that provides great comfort. This fabric is breathable as well, ensuring comfort over long periods of sitting.
  • Secretlab Cold-Cure Foam Mix – Secretlab’s patent pending technology ensures that you find the ultimate in both comfort and support from the foam cushioning under your legs. This foam design helps your posture while providing superior comfort. Nobody wants a chair that is uncomfortable, and Secretlab prides itself on the comfort technology built into their gaming chairs.
  • Full-metal 4D armrests – Secretlab put a lot of work into the design for their armrests for the 2020 models. They are designed with an internal metal mechanism for greater durability, you can move these armrests in a host of directions. You can move it forwards and backwards, left and right, angled in and out, and up and down, giving you a host of adjustable options for the armrests. The armrests adjust sideways by 1”, Move forwards and backwards 1.4”, and move up and down 3”, giving you plenty of maneuverability.
  • Memory Foam Lumbar & Head Pillows – Both the lumbar and head pillows on the Throne Series are upgraded with a premium memory foam, which allows the pillows to conform to the curvature of your body to allow comfort and support of your sitting position. The Head pillow has a cool gel coating inside the upholstery that allows your head to stay cooler while you are using it!
  • Full length back reclineRecline up to 165° with the back reclining feature, allowing you to relax in your chair but maintain ergonomic stability at all times
  • Full-tilt & lock mechanism – The full tilt mechanism gives the user the ability to adjust both the height and tension of the tilt mechanism, allowing you to have control over the suspension of your gaming chair while you are reclining. This feature also allows you to lock the chair in place when reclining, but does not allow you to lock the chair in a rocking, or tilted angle position. This feature however, does come on the Omega, Titan, & Titan XL models.
  • High Quality & High Powered Structural Components – The Titan Series Gaming Chair comes with features such as steel frame construction, class 4 hydraulics, an ADC12 Aluminum wheel base, and XL PU Caster Wheels, all designed to promote durability and performance

FAQ

Which upholstery option should I choose: Prime 2.0 PU Leather or Softweave Fabric?

Since these two upholstery options are similar in price, many customers wonder which is right for them. While every individual is different, this short breakdown may help.

The Prime 2.0 PU Leather is water-resistant, which may make it the best choice if you have a lot of accidental spills (we won’t tell!)

The Softweave fabric was made with breathability front and center, woven tightly together the fabric still allow for air to flow through.

When it comes to maintenance, the PU leather is pretty easy to take care of and needs quick maintenance every now and then. The Softweave fabric doesn’t need maintenance as often, but it will take more effort to clean if it gets dirty. Secretlab also sells cleaner for both model in their accessories store!

What is the assembly process like?

A Secretlab chair is pretty straightforward to install, taking most users roughly 20 minutes to assemble. Once you purchase a chair, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to your e-mail with an assembly video and guide, and the Secretlab website has resources for you including the assembly video and guide. In addition, the installation guide will be included in the shipped chair. Secretlab wants the installation process to be simple and straightforward!
