Noblechair Java Edition Gaming Chair Review
Peter Donnell / 4 months ago
Putting this chair together is hard work, as the components are surprisingly heavy and can be a little daunting for first-time chair builders. The box it comes in is suggested as a two-person lift due to its size and weight, and an extra set of hands for fitting the backrest is a good idea. I’ve done these dozens of times though, so I’m going in alone. It’s all just washers and bolts though, fit the rocker mechanism to the bottom of the seat base.
The same again, more washers and bolts to fit and just the width of the armrests.
Pop on those plastic panels for the rocker and height adjustment. Push on real hard though, they slide on much further than you might think but use friction to hold them on the stems.
The wheels and gas lift just drop into the legs too, so that takes next to no time at all.
Lining up the backrest to the mounts is a pain in the arse, and dangerous too. Pulling the lever while there’s tension on this side spring has the bar fire forward hard enough it could seriously break a bone, so… DON’T PULL THAT DAMN LEVER.
Once you’ve screwed both sides, go around again and check they’re nice and tight, as these tend to take a few goes to get properly adjusted.
You can then screw on the plastic cover, making it look neat and tidy.
The next bit is also tricky, as the heavy base needs to be lifted, and lowered onto the gas lift that’s sticking up out of the wheelbase. It’s pretty much impossible to see what you’re doing, so having someone direct you is recommended.
Once it’s dropped onto the base, go grab a drink, wipe the sweat from your brow, and get ready to enjoy your new chair. As you can see, I have the old black one on the left and the new and improved Java edition on the right.
