The Stealcase leap office chair is one of those office chairs that allows for a wide range of adjustments so that you can always get the perfect seating position whenever you settle down to work, and because of this, we think it could be the best office chair for tailbone pain. The home office desk chair is also shipped fully assembled, so you don’t need to worry about having to put it together. For people who may be skeptical of its quality at first, this Leap V2 task chair comes with a lifetime warranty, and this means Steelcase will repair or replace it without any additional costs if any part of it fails. If you’re interested in what else this ergonomic chair has to offer, make sure you get to the end of this review.

Why We Like It – Steelcase Leap Office Chair

With LiveBack technology lumbar support, height adjustable arms and up to 15 different colors to choose from, the Steelcase Leap Office Chair gives some of the best office chairs in the market a run for their money.

  • 12 different color options available
  • 4-way adjustable arms
  • Comes with a limited lifetime warranty
  • No massage feature


For users who spend 8 to 10 hours sitting on a chair everyday, back support probably forms the main part of the discussion whenever office chairs come up. Fortunately, the Steelcase Leap chair is an ergonomic office chair that comes with adjustable lumbar support, and this is thanks to its Live Back technology. This technology makes it possible for the chair to adjust to the movement of your back, and have its height adjustable arms move in or out and thereby allowing you to recline without leaving your vision or reach zone. The technology is a close competitor to that of the Herman Miller Aeron office chair, but we’re not quite sure whether or not it’s better.


You’ll probably get just about the same level of comfort from this Leap V2 chair as you will from the Ticova Ergonomic Office Chair, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. The Steelcase chair does come with the option to add leather upholstery at an added cost, though this would add to it a more premium feel, and also make it quite easier to clean. If this much comfort still isn’t enough for you though, perhaps the Steelcase Gesture chair might be worth a look.


The Steelcase Leap Chair allows for varied degrees of seat height adjustment, making it customizable to a very high degree. It’s seat height varies from 15.5 to 20.5 inches, and like most desk chairs it comes with a total of 5 caster wheels that give it a 360-degree swivel. The adjustable seat height range can be increased to about 7 inches, though this would have to be done at an added cost.


This Leap V2 task chair doesn’t come with meshback, but there is a wide range of different textured fabrics that you can opt for depending on how much more you can spend. The standard version comes with a foam padding, and while this might not be the best material to use for breathability, it won’t really cause excessive sweating even after sitting on the chair for long hours.


With a weight capacity of about 400 pounds, this Steelcase Leap chair is able to handle 100 more pounds in weight than the Dowinx Gaming Chair Ergonomic Racing Style Recliner with Massage Lumbar Support thanks to its solid metal structure. This means that should you add weight as you use the chair over time, the Steelcase chair would still keep stable and not crack under any added pressure.

Steelcase Leap Office Chair Wrap Up

Finding the right office furniture will always depend on your budget, as well as the right balance of functionality and comfortability depending on your needs. In the case of an office chair, if you’re looking for one that takes care of your lower back and are prepared to pay whatever you need to, then the Herman Miller Aeron office chair would be the best office chair to go for. If you’re however operating on a budget and would still want something that keeps your spine in check, and offers varied options for seat and height adjustment, then the Steelcase Leap Office Chair is for you.
