Secretlab Classics and Secretlabs Titan Evo

Secretlab is a brand that has made a significant mark in the gaming chair segment. You’ll find their chairs in the background of famous personalities and content creators everywhere, with their logo always front and center, which we can recognize even just by its silhouette alone.

To some, owning a Secretlab chair is almost a status symbol, on top of its obvious functional uses. However, with such a wide range of products, choosing the right Secretlab chair can be a daunting task. Should you go for the timeless Classics series or explore the cutting-edge TITAN Evo series?

Let’s dive in and help you make the right choice!

Secretlab Classics Unboxing

The Secretlab Classic Series is the most basic product in the lineup, but that’s not to say that it lacks the quality that the brand is well-known for. This gaming chair is all about measured functionality, and can still perform among the best of them. 

Upon unboxing, you’ll find meticulously crafted instructional materials. The instructions are presented on a large, laminated sheet, showcasing Secretlab’s commitment to quality. The clarity and straightforwardness of these instructions make the assembly process easy to understand.

The first component you’ll encounter is the backrest, wrapped in a breathable Softweave Fabric, offering a unique softness compared to its Prime PU Leatherette counterpart. The backrest is adorned with both the Secretlab and TITAN logos and is equipped with a 2-way adjustable lumbar support system.

The Classic Series stands out from the TITAN Evo series with two key features: the Memory Foam Head Pillow and the Adjustable 4D Armrests. Unlike the TITAN Evo, which has more bells and whistles, the Classic Series is equipped with a head pillow secured by a strap and 4D armrests that cannot be replaced or swapped.

Assembling the chair is a straightforward process, thanks to the ADC12 Aluminum Wheel Base, the Class 4 Hydraulic Piston, and the Multi-tilt Mechanism. In a separate compartment, you’ll find the 5 Secretlab PU-coated casters along with a branded toolkit containing a screwdriver and an Allen wrench. The premium experience extends beyond the chair itself, with even the simple inclusion of a branded screwdriver showcasing a commitment to excellence.

Another key differentiator between the Classic Series and the TITAN Evo series is the leveled seat base designed for optimal support. While the TITAN Evo series features a pebble seat base and a waterfall edge.

Even for first-time users, assembling a Secretlab chair is a straightforward process that can be accomplished solo, with the entire assembly typically taking 20 to 30 minutes at most.

Secretlab TITAN EVO Unboxing

The Secretlab TITAN Evo, an upgrade from the Classics series, is Secretlab’s latest and most advanced chair. It retains the a lot of what made the Classics a beloved product, while introducing several unique features that take it to the next level.

The model we unboxed was the XL Premium Neo Hybrid Leatherette, known for its soft texture and subtle red stitching accents. The TITAN Evo includes a Magnetic Memory Foam Head Pillow that attaches to the chair magnetically, eliminating straps.

The backrest is significantly improved with the L-Adapt Lumbar System, offering 4-way adjustment. If you need more, additional lumbar support is available through a separate Memory Foam Lumbar Pillow.

The Full-metal 4D Armrests with CloudSwap Technology can be quickly swapped out using magnetic connectors, with options for Plushcell or Technogel Armrest Tops. While the default Armrests are a premium experience in and of themselves, users can choose to upgrade should they feel the need for them.

The chair also features a Proprietary Pebble Seat Base with a waterfall edge, providing side support and thigh pressure relief, making it ideal for stockier individuals. Compared to the leveled base of the Classics Series, this difference could be the key factor in some choosing one over the other.

So, which one is for you?

Both Secretlab chair series deliver a premium experience, each with its own set of merits. Pricing often drives decision-making, and for most users, the Secretlab Classic series provides an excellent choice. However, if you’re seeking innovative technological advancements, a bespoke experience, and premium enhancements, the TITAN Evo series is the ideal choice, especially since it comes backed by up to an industry-leading 5-year extended warranty.
