When it comes to the best gaming chairs today, only two have been awarded our editing prize: the Secretlab Titan Softweave and the Secretlab Omega. We've been advising PC gamers to grab one of these two chairs for quite some time, and we're still not convinced otherwise, but maybe that could be about to change.
The Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 is the latest creation of the company. It's very similar to today's Titan, but includes some good upgrades to whet the appetite of chair fans. Chair enthusiasts are one thing, right?
First, a new synthetic leather material. It incorporates nappa leather and a hybrid PU leather compound, which Secretlab says is quite sturdy and durable. Unfortunately, it's made of real leather, so vegans may be left with the Softweave option. Anyway, Secretlabs offers a few more color options with the 2022 version.
From then on, up to the armrests, and Secretlabs has introduced a new full metal 4D armrest with interchangeable replacements called CloudSwap. It is basically a magnetic armrest system that allows you to switch to your preferred material choice. It is making an “Technogel” ice armrest available at launch and it looks like there are more materials to follow.
Secretlab loves magnets because it also includes lots of memory foam pads updated to the Titan 2022.
A magnetic headrest is definitely something we will try to try for ourselves, but I am willing to give up the headrest straps if it works.
Finally, there are a couple of tweaks to the handles and controls on the back and base of the chair to make them best available to the user.
Far from being a complete reimagining of what is a play chair, it is not BMW’s latest concept, there are some good upgrades built into the new Titan. Solid updates in an already much appreciated design? Yes, we’ll take it, as long as it’s as good as it sounds on paper, anyway.
Despite the name, you can also buy the new Titan 2022 from today. It will be presented in three sizes: small, regular and XL and will support heights from 150 cm to 205 cm.
