Comparison of Design and Features

The best way to decide on which brand to choose is to know the features and the design of the chairs they produce. So here we will make a comparison for various features and other aspects of the chairs of both DZRacer and SecretLab.

Sizes Available

DXRacer has chairs to fit in people of bigger build comfortably. The strongest chair of DXRacer, Tank, has the maximum load capacity of 450 pounds. Whereas, the strongest chair of SecretLab, titan, has a maximum load capacity of only 290 pounds which is much less as compared to DXRacer.

There are different chairs made to for different types of body. You can choose from a series of 10. DXRacer will give recommendations for height and weight so that you pay for the right model of chair.

For the smallest gamers there is the Formula series. Racing, Valkyrie and Drifting is suitable for the slim body with average height and Classic suits the average height but chubby people. Iron, King, Boss, Sentinel and Tank is for the heavy users with large body.

SecretLabs has three options only. Throne series supports the smallest body type with a load capacity of 220 pounds, Omega is for average heights and weights up to 240 pounds and finally Titan is for the bigger body types with height above 6 feet and weight within 290 pounds.

So if you have a big build then DXRzacer has got better options. If you think 290 pounds is enough to support you then go for SecretLab as it costs much less.

Features

#1. Armrest

All chairs of SecretLab come with 4D armrests which are useful in avoiding shoulder and wrist pains due to long hours of gaming.

DXRacer provides 4D armrests only in the bigger and pricey models like Iron, Tankand King. Other chairs also have 4D armrests but you have to pay an additional amount for that.

#2. Reclination and Tilt Mechanism

There is almost no difference between the two brands when it comes to this feature. All chairs of both the brands have deep reclination feature allowing to relax. The tilt angle lock is not present in all series.

SecretLab provides the locking mechanism in only Omega and Titan series. DXRacer provides the feature in King, Sentinel, Classic, Tank, Drifting, Iron and Racing series. Both brands have excluded this feature in the smaller and cheaper options.

#3. Neck and Lumbar Support

DXRacer doesn’t provide adjustable pillows for the neck in all chairs. Boss and Classic series have a pillow which is buil-in and cannot be moved.

SecretLab has a plus point in this matter. All of its chairs are equipped with adjustable neck pillows which are made of memory foam and cooling gel. This makes the chairs really comfortable and your head and hair stays cool and free of sweat.

The lumbar support is another feature that differentiates the two brands. DXRacer has equipped all its chairs with a pillow for the lower back support. This pillow can be slid up and down for a perfect fit.

ScretLab on the other hand does not provide an adjustable lumbar pillow in two of its series, throne and Omega. Titan series however has an adjustable lumbar support built with the backrest. You can adjust it depending on the amount of support you need.

So, if you are looking for chairs with great neck supports, go for SecretLab. For adjustable lumbar pillow and neck pillow DXRacer will be a better option.

#4. Base

The smaller models of DXRacer brand come with base made of nylon which are not very strong as the aluminium base. Many customers have complained about this. The nylon base chairs are suitable for lightweight people only.

SecretLab has equipped all of its chairs with a strong aluminium base, regardless of what size the chair is. The chairs are stable and supports the heavy people also.

#5. Fabric

In DXRacer 3 out of 10 series, that is, Valkyrie, Classic and Boss, use one type of upholstery. The remaining 7 series have different models made of various materials like PU leather, full-grain leather, Carbon Look Vinyl and mesh fabric.

SecretLab chairs are available in three different fabrics:

  • SoftWeave Fabric : this fabric allows air circulation that keeps the body cool. You will not get sweaty in this chair. This fabric is not easy to clean though.
  • Prime PU Leather : this material is the cheapest but looks elegant. It is resistant to water and easy to clean. However, this material causes the body to heat up.
  • NAPA Leather : it is soft, durable and breathable. This full-grain leather is really expensive.

So you can choose the upholstery that makes you comfortable and is within your budget.

If you change the upholstery then the color might also change, for both DXRacer and SecretLab. This happens because all colors are not available for all types of fabric.

#6. Warranty and Service

The warranty provided is good for both the brands. DXRacer give a lifetime warranty on steel frame and 2 years on the parts of the chair. Their customer service is friendly and efficient. They have a number and an online form on the website for you queries.

SecretLab provides 3 years warranty for the new series of 2020 and 2 years for the 2018 models. You can contact them directly on their website by filling out a form. They also have a useful FAQ/Support page. But there is no number provided.

Final Words

These are the major differences SecretLab vs Dxracer brands. Which one to choose actually depends on what features you want. Both the brands have different options that you can choose from based on your budget.
