I write this review after several months. I gave this chair a fair amount of time until I realized that the more I use it, the more damage my back takes.
My 2 major problems with this chair are:
-Reclination: I have read reviews about this chair complaining about it. I did't listen. It is impossible to fix the chair straight in a non-reclinable way. When you fix it and you lay on it, the back will still recline slightly about 5 degrees. This sounds trivial, but over time had huge implications for me. I found myself slightly forcing my lower back muscles in order to avoid the reclination. My back was always in a very slight but constant tension.
-Wheels: the wheels roll too easily, without posing any friction. This sounds silly as well but let me explain. The wheels pose absolutely no resistance. Normally, in order to move a chair you need to exert a very light force to overcome the wheel friction and make the chair move. This isn't the case with this chair. Just relaxing my leg muscles makes the chair already roll back. Do I have very strong legs or a very polished floor? Maybe, but this is the only chair I've tried that had that problem. The result? My leg muscles were as well constantly in light tension to avoid rolling, or extended forward in a way that is not very ergonomic. It just didn't work for me.
I work on a desk every day and over time this issues gave me lower back ache. Maybe this is irrelevant for you but if your back is sensitive, do pay attention to this. And maybe look for these issues when you try the chair out.
