Since its inception, noblechairs has always invested in austere design lines, good quality, and classy colors. The best of all with this chair probably is that it can be used either with a gaming rig or in an office environment. A definite advantage of all noblechairs products is that they are tested and certified according to DIN EN 1335-1/2. Furthermore, all chairs comply with the UK Fire safety compliance BS 5852.

In its latest collaboration, noblechairs took a nice turn and went straight to the very core of the gaming chair aspiration: the original sports bucket seat design. The F1 cockpit is equipped with the most iconic seat, which is the foundation of the majority of gaming chair designs nowadays. Although this chair design is widely popular, not all brands have the chance to collaborate with Mercedes-Benz to release an impressive-looking product. That said, in the near future, I would like to see something different and more innovative, something that stands out from the crowd and improves ergonomics along with every other important feature.

Formula 1 enthusiasts will most certainly adore this emblematic gaming chair. While I am not that fond of Formula 1 racing, I was very interested in this product because it is probably the closest I can get to owning something from Mercedes-Benz (at least for the time being)! The award-winning EPIC design noblechairs used as the foundation and time it put into this unique edition chair have paid off. What made an even bigger impact with this specific design are the Petronas green and silver details and Mercedes-AMG logo. I also find it fairly priced since the chair uses quality materials and has all the typical ergonomics to keep you comfortably seated after even many hours of use. My only objection is with the seat's base. I would like it to be slightly softer, and heavy users would surely appreciate a higher weight limit. It would also be nice to have the integrated lumbar support the Hero Series features. Finally, at some point, I expect to see a noblechairs design with a mesh material and an adjustable neck-support system.
