Product Snapshot

Overview

The X-Chair X2 K-Sport Mgmt is a high-end office chair announced mid-2016. It sports a dynamic lumbar support system that adjusts automatically according to the weight of the seated individual, making it different from many top-rated office chairs that offer adjustable lumbar support.

Nonetheless, the X2 K-Sport still shines with four-way adjustable armrests, along with a full mesh backrest and mesh seat. The mesh seat features a waterfall design for good blood flow, and buyers might opt to include a massager or heating pad if they would so wish. The chair’s rollerblade wheels are also available in three different versions, but if you’d prefer no wheels at all, then our selection of the best office chairs without wheels might be of interest.

Consensus

our Verdict

The X-Chair X2 K-Sport Mgmt office chair is an excellent, top tier pick for anyone who prioritizes good breathability in their office chair. This is because the X2 K-Sport offers a full mesh backrest, midsection, and seat. It also offers good adjustability. The chair’s armrests are adjustable within a 2.75” range, and its seat height over a 4” range. Its seat depth can also be configured by about 1.75”, and its backrest can recline by about 40°.

However, instead of manually adjustable lumbar support, the X2 K-Sport Mgmt offers dynamic lumbar support, which adjusts to the posture and back movement of the individual seated on it. Also worth mentioning is that there are many options for buyers to consider with the X2. Buyers can opt to include a headrest, a massage pad, a heating pad, or different wheels, but this adds significantly to its overall cost.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Great Ergonomics and adjustability
    • The X-Chair X2 K-Sport is great for the office, with seat height adjustability (4” range), armrest height adjustment (2.75” range), seat depth(1.75”), and a backrest that reclines by about 40°. The armrests are also four-way adjustable.

  • Good build quality
    • The X2 K-Sport has a full mesh design, which is great for comfort and breathability. The chair also has a 275-pound weight capacity, which is a testament to its solid build.

  • Good breathability
    • The X-Chair X2 K-Spot offers great breathability courtesy of its mesh backrest and seat. This helps prevent back sweat when seated for long hours.

Reason to Avoid

  • Lumbar support is not adjustable
    • The lumbar support offered by the X2 K-Sport is not adjustable.

The X-Chair X2 K-Sport Mgmt chair sits a bit lower than the X-Tech Ultimate Executive Office Chair, as the X2’s seat height can be adjusted from 46.5” to 56.5”, while the X-Tech’s seat height can be adjusted from 48.375” to 58”375”. The X-Tech chair also has a wider 21.75” seat width compared to the X2’s 19.5” seat width, making the X-Tech chair more preferable for users who have a larger frame, despite being the more expensive pick. However, both these seats have dynamic lumbar support. If you’d like an alternative with more adjustable lumbar support, check out our Herman Miller Aeron review, our Steelcase Think review, or our Steelcase Series 2 review.

The X-Chair X2 K-Sport Mgmt chair comes with a headrest for optimum head and neck comfort, while the Berlman Ergonomic Mid Back Mesh Office Chair does not. The X2 K-Sport Mgmt chair also has a higher 275-pound weight capacity compared to the Berlman Ergonomic Chair’s 250 lbs capacity, and the X2 has a 40° reclining angle compared to the Berlman Chair’s 30°. Regarding adjustability, the armrests on the X2 allow for height, depth, width & angle adjustments, while those on the Berlman Chair can only be flipped up. We’ve covered them in our Berlman Mid-Back Mesh Chair review if you’re interested.

While the X-Chair X2 K-Sport Mgmt chair has a height adjustment range of about 4”, the Humanscale Diffrient Smart Task Chair allows up to 4.5” of seat height adjustment. The Humanscale Task Chair also has a higher 300-pound weight capacity than the X2 K-Sport’s 275-pound weight limit, but the X2 chair is available with a headrest, while the Humanscale Task Chair is not. Here’s our Humanscale Diffrient Smart Office Chair review for more on what else it offers.
