Product Snapshot

Overview

The NobleChairs EPIC Black is a premium offering announced in 2016. Buyers can choose an option with synthetic leather, real leather, high-tec leather, or fabric upholstery, which isn’t common among the best office chairs on the market. The EPIC Black’s backrest can be reclined from 90° to 135°, and it boasts high build quality, with a maximum load capacity of 265 lbs.

The EPIC Black chair’s seat height can be adjusted from 19’’ to 23’’, and its 2.36” casters allow for smooth movement across hard and soft floors. Like other highly rated gaming chairs, its armrests are also 4-way adjustable, and its integrated memory foam headrest is designed to adjust to the individual’s contours.

Consensus

our Verdict

The four different upholstery options for the Noblechairs EPIC Black gaming chair give it a slight edge over other variants. Its bucket seat design also wraps around an individual, ensuring that players stay comfortable during marathon gaming sessions. The integrated headrest is padded with memory foam, but it is not adjustable.

The chair doesn’t have adjustable lumbar support, but it comes with a back cushion and four directional armrests. Its 2.36” casters are quiet when moving courtesy of nylon cores and polyurethane coating, and since it is easy to assemble, putting it together shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. Its seat height is adjustable by 10cm, and when rocking, the chair tilts up to 11°. However, the chair doesn’t have a retractable footrest, which can be found on the Darkecho Gaming Chair.

Reason to Buy

  • Good ergonomics and adjustability
    • The Noblechairs EPIC chair can recline up to 135°, and with an 11° tilt, it allows for good travel when rocking. The chair also boasts four-way adjustable armrests, and its seat height and seat depth (both adjustable by 4”)are also easy to configure.

  • High build quality
    • The Noblechairs EPIC is well-built with a steel frame plus quality materials, and this is evidenced by its 265-pound weight capacity.

Reason to Avoid

  • No adjustable lumbar support
    • The Noblechairs EPIC doesn’t have dedicated lumbar support, only offering a pillow for back support.

The Noblechairs EPIC Black’s backrest has two perforations to facilitate good airflow and breathability. These perforations are missing on the Noblechairs HERO TX Black chair. The EPIC Black’s backrest can also recline at an angle of 90° to 135°, which is slightly better than the HERO TX Black chair, which reclines at an angle of 90° to 125°.

Finally, the EPIC Black chair has a weight capacity of about 265 pounds, lower than that of the HERO TX Black, rated at 330 lbs. If you’d like to learn more about it, check out our Noblechairs HERO TX review.

The EPIC Black is available in four material finishes, while the Corsair TC200 is limited to only two. However, the TC200 reclines to a more comfortable 180-degree angle, whereas the EPIC black only manages to reach 135°. We’ve covered the TC200 in our Corsair TC200 review in case you’re curious about it.

While the Noblechairs EPIC Black has two perforations on its backrest for airflow, the mesh fabric on the KERDOM Ergonomic chair offers far better breathability. However, the EPIC Black has considerably more padding, which some users may prefer. Also worth noting is that the EPIC Black has an integrated headrest – different from the independent one on the KERDOM chair, which we’ve covered in our KERDOM Breathable Mesh Office Chair review.
