Setup and Performance


The EPIC comes with a large piece of glossy card with large images and simple step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the chair, so let’s do just that!

First up, we need to screw the tilt adjustment panel to the bottom of the seat, four simple bolts are all that are needed and the Allan key required was included in the box. Then, slip on the two plastic paddles for the adjustment bars.

Clip the feet on and drop the gas lift and the cover onto the 5-point base; so far, this has all been very easy.

Have another person help you lift the seat, as recommended in the instructions. This means you can easily line up the gas lift with the bottom of the chair, and it’s pretty heavy anyway. Once that’s done, just push it down and it’ll snap into place.

This humble picture doesn’t do justice the nightmare that is attaching the backrest to the two sidebars, although that’s true of every gaming chair I’ve built; it’s always a pain in the backside. I suggest you get the help of a friend to hold the backrest up while you try line up the bolts and screw it in place, doing it on your own won’t be fun at all.

That’s the hard part done, now just screw on the two plastic covers to hide all those unsightly bolts and bars.

Once done, you can apply the optional headrest and lumbar cushions, which look epic on the EPIC, so we’ll take full advantage of those luxuries.

The head rest cushion is super soft, and at the perfect height to sit just above your shoulders and across the back of your neck.

Plus it looks really nice with the embroidered logo on it.

The lumbar cushion is a little firmer than the head rest, but given it has to survive more pressure when you’re sitting back, that makes sense. The strap mounting system makes it fairly easy to add or remove, but also means you can adjust the height to suit your needs.

For those who’ve sat in cheaper gaming chairs, the noblechairs feels quite hard. The thicker and higher quality padding, as well as the thick leather covering, don’t feel particularly forgiving, but given a few days usage it breaks in nicely and should last a hell of a lot longer than many gaming chairs that seem to wear out in less than a year.

Comfort is a big player for the EPIC and to get the best possition, you can obviously height adjust the chair, angle adjust the backrest, and even lock the tilt system. However, you can also height adjust the arm rests. Here it is at the lower setting.

And here it is jacked all the way up.

You can move them further forwards.

Or you can move them all the back.

Finally, you can pull them closer to your sides.

Or you can move them further out. Don’t forget, you can even more the whole arm closer or further away by a larger degree using the bolts on the underside.

The chair looks quite large, but it’s no bigger under my desk than any other gaming chair, with a fairly standard size wheel base. The only difference is that this chair can gas lift much higher than most, so much so that my feet dangle two inches off the ground and I’m 6ft tall!

dsc_1054

It certainly looks impressive and it’s mighty comfortable to sit in all day, having had it under my desk for a week now, I’m confident that I won’t be wanting to swap it out any time soon.

dsc_1056

Drop the gas lift a little and lower the arms if needed and it fits snug under your desk; as a chair should.
