noblechairs HERO Review: The New Throne Among Gaming Chairs?

We do not want to claim that we are not attracted to noblechairs. Already the ICON series was able to assert itself in our test and reflects the results of many others. The gaming chairs are pure luxury, offering a classy finish and with the best comfort. With the motto “Go Big” noblechairs has announced the HERO series. We have sent the variant with PU artificial leather to the test stand and tell you what we think of it.

An Overview: What Can the HERO Series do?

Steel frames, a solid aluminium base and a PU leatherette cover are just a few of the things the HERO has to offer. The chair is upholstered with cold foam, the castors are made of PU or nylon and the 4D armrests also have a PU cover.

A special highlight is the fixed lumbar support. This support can be adjusted to the shape of the back by means of an adjustment wheel on the right-hand side and thus offers even better seating comfort. For even greater seating comfort, the seat and backrest have been widened even further. In order to do justice to the more massive structure, the length of the back surface is even greater. The 4D armrests have also been slightly enlarged.

The height of the seat can be adjusted by up to 10 cm. Depending on the setting, the chair then reaches a height of 1.28 to 1.38 metres. The depth of the seat is 50 cm and 52 cm at the widest point. Of course, the chair also has a rocking mechanism, you can tilt the chair up to 11 degrees. The backrest can be freely adjusted in an angle from 90 to 135 degrees. Also included is a pillow and a lumbar cushion.

Honoured Quality for noblechairs

Also with the noblechairs HERO no compromises are made with the topic quality. In terms of appearance, the difference to genuine leather is not noticeable. Only when you touch the PU artificial leather can you feel the difference. The workmanship is very good and the cover lies perfectly on the upholstery. There are also no open stitches at the seams.

The massive structure of the HERO is striking. Due to the widened seat and rear surface, the chair looks very solid and looks great. As with the predecessor, the typical “racing design” that dominates gaming chairs has been dispensed with. This means that even more corpulent people are offered the highest degree of comfort, as the typical “wings” on the back have been dispensed with.

The 4D armrests are also positive. Since these can be moved in many different directions, there is room for error here. This refers to the typical rattling or clumsiness of adjustment. You don’t really have to say it, but here too noblechairs deliver quality at the highest level.

Seating Comfort: Built-In Lumbar Support for More Comfort

It is by no means questionable that the HERO offers outstanding seating comfort. Due to the already wider surfaces there is no feeling of tightness. The chair is also very inviting due to its large design. Due to the longer back surface, this also applies to tall people.
The special feature, especially in terms of comfort, is the built-in lumbar support. The backrest can thus be adapted to any shape of the back and supports a healthy sitting position. The head and lumbar cushions support this.

More comfort can only be created by good legroom. noblechairs manages to offer the greatest possible comfort in this area as well. The enlarged seat area and the very flat cheeks ensure that every user has the best seating position. The manufacturer has therefore not ignored this factor. Don’t worry, the design of the seat means that the support is not lost, even for people who don’t need the whole seat.

Without the Sports Seat Optic

As the topic of gaming chairs became more and more important for gamers, the sports seat look held the area firmly in its hands. Holes for seat belts and large side bolsters for the seat and back are still common today. Noblechairs, however, do not want to produce typical gaming chairs and are increasingly saying goodbye to this trend. Closed backrest, wide design and the flatest possible side bolsters dominate the design. As already mentioned, however, this design knows how to convince.

The HERO upholstery is very strong compared to other chairs. For some this may be a point of criticism, for us the upholstery is just right. The first time you sit down, you immediately notice what you are doing and feel that you have quality among you. In the end, the firm upholstery ensures a better posture, as you don’t sink into the chair.

The entire chair is enhanced by the PU imitation leather with excellent processed seams in the color red. noblechairs’ diamond pattern makes itself outstanding on the genuine leather.

Important Ingredient: A Strong Base

A good chair can quickly disappear into nowhere if the cross of the foot does not take part and cannot withstand any strain. However, the base of the HERO noblechair, made entirely of aluminium, can withstand a lot. The chair is suitable up to a weight of 150 kg anyway. However, it is not only the weight that has to be withstood, but also the daily rolling around and loading of the base. In cooperation with the Class 4 gas lift, a high level of stability is guaranteed – the result: a solid foundation.

The PU/Nylon rollers are also doing their job. The chair is very easy to move. Particularly pleasing is the aspect of how quietly the chair rolls. Especially with laminate or parquet floors, rolling is hardly audible. Due to the good workmanship they are also gentle on the floor – if you don’t have a base for the chair.

Conclusion of the noblechairs HERO Review

We can say that the noblechairs HERO is the best chair we have tested so far. Not only the extended range of functions by the lumbar support, but also the usual outstanding quality speak again and again for noblechairs. Optically appealing and very good workmanship make the chair something unique. The enlarged seat and backrest make the whole chair even more inviting.

Whether one would like to evaluate the price as a point of criticism remains a matter of taste. After all, quality has its price. The noblechairs HERO are available with PU artificial leather from 399,90 € and with genuine leather for 659,90 €.
