The Alera Elusion Series mesh back chair is a pretty good example of what a comfortable, well-built chair is. And, it’s also from a brand that has maintained a very good reputation like the Neuechair does. The Aluse Elusion Series office chair is only available in the color black, which is great because it’ll probably go well with both your home and your office. Also worthy of note is that the chair’s adjustable arms are covered with soft polyurethane, and this makes them feel a lot better to rest your elbows on compared to what leather would feel like. Is this enough to make it the best office chair for scoliosis? Go ahead and read the rest of this review to find out if it is the best office chair for you.

Why We Like It – Alera Elusion Series Multifunction chair

The Alera Elusion Series Multifunction Chair is a breathable mesh back chair that is height adjustable, has a high back, and is only available in a black seat back color. The chair is pretty easy to assemble, and comes with a limited 5-year warranty.

Pros
  • Breathable mesh back
  • Contoured seat cushion
  • Comes with a 5 Year Warranty
Cons
  • No massage function

Support

The Alera Elusion series mesh chair comes with width adjustable arms, and it also has a multifunction device that has a seat glide, which also allows back angle adjustment that’s relative to the seat. This mechanism is not really as advanced as what you’ll find with the Herman Miller Aeron task chair, but it’s still great for both mid-back and lower back support, and will also help relieve back pain.

Comfort

The seat cushion on the Alera Elusion series back chair adopts a waterfall edge design, and this is essential because it helps improve blood flow to and from your legs especially if you tend to sit down for long periods. This is a similar design that many of the leading conference room chairs use. The seat material is made out of a premium fabric upholstery, and is also contoured to relieve pressure. If you lean the seat back, you might notice that it starts tightening up a little bit, and this might not allow you to place your feet on the table if you’re the kind of person to do that. The Serta Hannah Microfiber Office Chair however has a lot less tension, and can lean slightly further back.

Adjustability

Similar to the Covibrant lockable stool, the Alusa Elusion Series mesh back chair comes with several levers that’ll allow for back height adjustment, seat height adjustment, and even the amount of force you’ll need to tilt the chair, and these are the kind of controls that you’d expect a general office task seat to have. The mid-back multifunction chair also allows for an adjustable tilt, as well as back angle adjustment relative to the back seat. The chair has a seat height maximum of 21.4 inches, and a seat height minimum of 17.7 inches. For a stool that you can adjust for any office activity, check out our adjustable desk stool review.

Breathability

Compared to the La-Z-Boy Trafford office chair, the Alera Elusion mesh mid-back multifunction office chair would be a lot more comfortable to sit on especially on a hot day, and this is because of the easy airflow that its mesh back material allows for.

Value

The Elusion series mesh mid-back multifunction chair black comes with a whole lot of advantages that will make your seating experience a lot more comfortable than it normally is. Its 5-year warranty is longer than what you’ll get with most office chairs, and its contoured seat cushion is also quite unique, giving it a seat depth that you probably won’t find with a lot of other chairs. Height adjustment is easy, but the only issue we have with the chair is that the color black arms included can not be flipped up.

Alera Elusion Series Multifunction chair Wrap Up

This Alera Elusion series mesh mid-back office chair comes with just about enough back support for users who have sclerosis since its multifunction lumbar support mechanism seat glide allows back angle adjustment, meaning you’ll need to reach out to the back of the seat with one hand and adjust it to your preferences.
