Product on Review: noblechairs EPIC Black Edition
Street Price: UK £374.99
noblechairs have been producing gaming chairs since 2016, starting with the EPIC, and have amassed many awards for the quality and comfort of their releases since then. We’ve praised them highly here at Vortez for many reasons, but today we’re looking at the next evolution of noblechairs, the Black Edition.
The biggest change with the Black Edition is a whole new type of fabric, designed and made in Germany, which is superior to the previous faux leather in several ways, chief amongst which is the improved breathability, which removes the need for perforations, as well as increased abrasion resistance.
Other improvements include a low emission footprint in the production of the fabric, largely thanks to a lack of phthalates and petroleum products used. It’s 100% vegan-friendly, it’s light-fast (which means it won’t fade when exposed to sunlight), and produces a soft, nappa-leather like feel which helps to improve comfort while also being relatively cost-effective when compared to expensive leathers.
The only improvements aren’t strictly resigned to the fabric; smaller, subtle changes have been made elsewhere to improve the chair, with adjustments made to the cushions, wheel-base, reclining lever and arm rests to name but a few.
With the market currently awash with gaming chair models of all shapes, sizes, colours and brands, is a noblechairs EPIC Black Edition really worth the asking price? Let’s delve in a little deeper and find out.
noblechairs on the EPIC Black Edition:
With the arrival of the Black Edition, the noblechairs EPIC range is receiving a visual and material upgrade. The new and unique upholstery belongs to the next generation of breathable seating materials. This innovative hybrid material from Germany that consists of an ingenious blend of vinyl and polyurethane manages to offer the very best characteristics of both. The end result is an ultra-soft surface that is exceptionally durable. Additionally, the new stainless steel grips, the visually more stunning wheelbase, the improved armrests and metallic-look belt pass-throughs help round out this premium upgrade to an already high-quality gaming chair.
