Having already looked at the ICON series chair, noblechairs asked us to look at their first gaming chair, the EPIC series gaming chair. This one came before the ICON and is designed more like your usual gaming chair, resembling more of a bucket seat style design. Looking retrospectively, we can easily see how noblechairs have designed all chairs to maximise on build and comfort, designed specifically for gamers who will be sat down a lot.
Like the ICON, the EPIC chair is available in a range of different colours that should allow most gamers to match their overall set up. In this review, I opted for the all over black chair, which is more “stealth” looking in your set up as it does not have any bright colours.
Looking at the building process again, exactly as the ICON it came in the same huge box and was separated into the same number of pieces with a small packet that held a few screws and the tools needed to build it. I’m still relatively surprised at how easy it is to build these higher end gaming chairs when you compare them to your standard office chair or knock-off gaming chair that you can buy for £50.
Most of the build is already done for you, hence why the box is so damn big and it weighs a tonne. On the plus side though, it takes about 20 minutes for you to put it together and everything you need to do so is already included. No need to dust off your toolbox and search for the correct Allen keys or screwdrivers. This build set-up is so refined, every gaming chair I’ve looked at has come with the exact steps and fittings.
