Product Snapshot

Overview

The Flexispot C7 is a mid-range office chair first announced in 2023. The office chair ships with a headrest by default and offers dynamic lumbar support. With the capacity to support individuals who weigh up to 300 pounds, the C7 is as sturdy as some of the best-ranked office chairs on the market, and it also has a breathable mesh back.

Buyers can also opt for a foam or mesh seat. However, the foam seat is 6” thick, while the mesh seat is 5”. Both seats have a waterfall seat design that allows for good blood flow to the legs, which is essential, especially for individuals who tend to stay seated for long hours.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Flexispot C7 is an ergonomic office chair with dynamic lumbar support and an adjustable headrest. The chair’s lower back support mechanism consists of a separate lumbar cushion that is curved in a way that targets the sacrum and also helps maintain a forward-leaning position.

Regarding adjustability, owners of the C7 can adjust its seat height by about 2.7” and configure its seat depth by 2.4”. Its backrest can recline from 90° to 128°, and its armrests are also 4-way adjustable. The mesh backrest and lumbar support pad on the C7 offer excellent breathability, but buyers can choose to have it come with a mesh or foam seat.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Good ergonomics and adjustability
    • The Flexispot C7 ergonomic office chair offers good adjustability, as it allows for seat height adjustments (within a 2.7” range), 4-way armrests adjustment, seat depth adjustments (within a 2.4” range) and backrest reclining up to 128°

  • Good breathability
    • Buyers can opt to have a mesh backrest and seat for the C7, ensuring good breathability and reducing back sweat when seated for long hours.

Reason to Avoid

  • Lumbar support is not manually adjustable
    • The lumbar support on the C7 doesn’t allow manual adjustments.
