Product Snapshot

Overview

Launched in 2020, the X-Chair X3 ATR Management Chair has a height ranging from 48.25 to 58.25 inches, a width of 29 inches, and a depth of 26.75 inches. It’s available in four colors (black, grey, blue, and glacier) and has a max weight recommendation of 330 lbs. Like the best office chair, it has a 4D armrest, and the Advanced Tensile Recovery fabric is spill, stain, and water-resistant.

This chair is fairly customizable while ordering, with customizations costing a bit more. You can choose from massage options (X-HMT Heat & massage or ELEMAX Cooling, heat & massage), armrest options (standard 4D or FS 360° rotational arms), and seat width options (20.75” or extended 21.75”). For a chair that can support more weight, read our ergoCentric tCentric Hybrid ergonomic chair review.

Consensus

our Verdict

The X-Chair X3 ATR Management Chair is quite suitable for home office setups thanks to its incredible ergonomic features and durable build. Its Dynamic Variable Lumbar (DVL) support is extremely comfortable for the lower spine without requiring additional adjustments, and its 140-degree recline, which remains stable, is perfect for stretching in the middle of work.

It has an adjustable headrest, backrest, depth, and 4D arms, and has plenty of add-ons, including massage, wheel, and seat width options. The chair can support up to 330 lbs of weight, and its breathable Advanced Tensile Recovery (ATR) fabric is soft yet durable. Although it has a 5-year warranty on moving parts and materials and a 15-year warranty for non-moving metal parts, it is an expensive investment.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Incredible ergonomics and adjustability
    • This well-designed chair is ideal for long hours, with spine support. Its 140-degree recline is great and remains stable on the ground even when fully reclined. You can also adjust its headrest, backrest, depth, and 4D arms.

    • The chair offers immense customizability while purchasing, including headrest, massage, armrest, seat width and foam, and wheel type options. Its Advanced Tensile Recovery (ATR) fabric is comfortable, breathable, and durable.

  • Superb lumbar support
    • The chair’s Dynamic Variable Lumbar (DVL) support is superbly comfortable and convenient because it needs no manual adjustments.

    • Once you sit, the lower-back portion of the chair, which has a spring-tension mechanism, adjusts to give you a precise amount of support without feeling too much or too less

  • Excellent build quality
    • Both the fabric and the metal feel quite durable, and the 5-year warranty on moving parts and materials and the 15-year warranty for non-moving metal parts will give you peace of mind.

Reason to Avoid

  • Expensive
    • Even without any of the add-ons, the X3 ATR will still cost you upwards of $900.

Featuring mesh fabric, the X-Chair X3 ATR Management Chair is more affordable than the X-Chair X4 Leather Executive Chair wrapped in leather. Although they both have the same weight capacity (275 lbs), the Leather Executive has a slightly greater height range (48.775” to 58.375”) than the X3 ATR (48.25” to 58.25”) and looks more elegant.

The X-Chair X3 ATR Management Chair has 4D armrests for superior adjustability, but the BestOffice Ergonomic High Back Office Chair doesn’t have those. The X3 ATR also has a wider 140-degree angle recline than the BestOffice’s 120 degrees. Read our BestOffice Ergonomic High Back Office Chair review for more information on the latter.

The Secretlab Omega Gaming Chair’s 165-degree recline is greater than the X-Chair X3 ATR Management Chair’s 140-degree recline. However, the X3 ATR offers a 5-year warranty on moving parts and materials and 15 years for non-moving metal parts, which is much more than Omega’s standard 3-year warranty. For more insights, read our Secretlab Omega Gaming Chair review. And for a 2D adjustable headrest, read this Kerdom breathable mesh office chair review.

The X3 ATR has all of the features of its predecessor, the X2 K-Sport Management Chair. But instead of the double weave K-Sport mesh fabric, the X3 ATR incorporates Advanced Tensile Recovery fabric (ATR) across the chair for more comfort and support. It’s also stain, spill, and water-resistant. Lastly, while the X2 K-Sport has a maximum weight capacity of 240 lbs, the X3 ATR can support up to 330 lbs.
