Product Snapshot

Overview

The Noblechairs Hero is a premium gaming chair launched in 2018. Like some of the best office chairs on the market, it has a swiveling base and a sturdy frame able to accommodate up to 330 lbs. Key ergonomic features include 45º of backrest adjustability and 11º of tilt, plus adjustable lumbar support. Lumbar and neck pillows are optional.

Like the best gaming chairs, it’s a racing seat-inspired design with firm, supportive padding, cold foam inner upholstery, and a memory foam headrest. Height adjustment is via a sturdy class 4 gas lift, allowing a weight capacity of 330 pounds.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Noblechairs Hero has good ergonomics and firm but supportive padding. The embedded adjustable lumbar support system is convenient, adding comfort for focused gaming sessions. A solid metal chassis and class 4 gas lift help the chair feel sturdy and well-built. With a broad shoulder area and a 330-lb (150 kg) weight limit, it’s more accommodating for larger users than the average gaming chair.

Smooth, urethane caster wheels and removable armrests add maneuverability. Build quality is good, befitting this gaming chair’s premium price. Still, some may wish for more colors and upholstery options. With just 4 inches of seat height adjustment, smaller users may have trouble finding the ideal seating position. Those who prefer softer cushioning may find a more suitable fit elsewhere.
