There's lots to like about the latest version of the ErgoTune Supreme v3. If you're not a fan of the race car type seats from say, Secretlab, then the ErgoTune is likely your best alternative. The headrest, lumbar support, and gas cartridge have all been upgraded, making it better than the previous model.
- Height range support of 140cm to 210cm
- Suitable for less than 130kg
- 12 year warranty
- 136-degree recline
The Supreme comes with a whole bunch of ergonomic features. I'm not an expert, so I can't tell you medically if it works. What I can say though, is that it was ridiculously comfortable once I got all the ergonomic stuff sorted. That means adjusting the position of the seat base which can slide out. The TriTune Enhanced 3D Headrest can move up and down, back and forth, and angled up and down. I don't like that it's a bit too sensitive. Sometimes when I'm trying to move the chair around, I'd accidentally push the headrest down. While not as obvious as the headrest, the lumbar support has also been tweaked. It now comes with its own tension adjustment.
Other adjustable bits include moving the backrest up and down. It's quite simple to do, you just need to reach backwards while seated and push upwards. However, pushing too high will reset it and the backrest will come back down. It's a bit tricky to gauge the absolute limit. I often go over and the backrest goes back to the lowest point. The arm rest goes up and down, as well as rotates. But it doesn't go forward or side to side. Like other similar chairs, the Supreme also has a tilt lock, so you can easily lean backwards and keep it there. However, you can't lean all the way backwards and lie flat like you could with the Titan Evo.
While the mesh design does draw comparisons to the Herman Miller Aeron chair, it's fundamentally different looks-wise. The Supreme adopts a more open look, with the edges appearing frameless from the front. The mesh design also makes it cooler to sit in, compared to my slightly older fabric Secretlab Omega, or the PU leather-clad Razer Enki X. The wide seat base is also comparable to the 2022 Secretlab Titan Evo and the Enki. I like that I can stretch in the seat. Lastly, I like to point out that it's a bit hard to reach the levers while seated. So you will have to bend and stretch. Depending on your size, you may want to get a different gas lift that supports your weight. This option will be available in May 2022.
At S$599, the ErgoTune Supreme V3 is perfect for sitting for long hours. It's also great for our humid weather since the mesh design allows for more air flow compared with race car seat chairs. If you're getting one, be sure to check Shopee or Lazada, where the price may even be discounted further. Alternatively, get it direct from ErgoTune.
