What’s not so great about office star Progrid managers chair

The back of the chair is not independent of the seat. Although the tilt and the seat height can be adjusted and locked, the back has only one position. There is also no synchro-tilt feature in this chair. Also, the tilt tension can use a bit more range.

Although the arms can be moved up and down, they cannot be flipped up and away. One has to unscrew to completely remove the armrests. The armrests can use a bit of padding.

The chair is slightly noisy and creeks a bit on movement. The lumbar support present in office star ProGrid managers chair is mediocre and not very robust. It is also non-adjustable. The chair is not contoured very well in the lower back.

Lastly, the chair is available only in black color which can be dampening for those looking for bright chair interiors.
