Secretlab also reach out to me. They lie that it only happen to a small minority. My titan which is seldom used peeled b4 2 years. Everyone considering buying this chair can just forget it. Look another way.

I agree on this point.

Just in this thread & all over HWZ forums, the anecdotal evidence is damning.

saw that Royale Ergonomics was mentioned a couple of times here.
just wondering if anyone tried their chairs before and what's the feel like as compared to SL?

Mine started to peal around Dec 2019, bought it around Sep 2016 so say 3 years. I did receive a mailer giving a trade in discount or they will redo the PU Leather for a fee. Decided to use a local company to reupholster it instead, will see how it fares in few weeks time. Gonna do a real leather wrap for 400.

I am using their faux leather series chair. Comfort level is on par with Secret Lab but the backrest is a little too deep in for me. Resolved this through the backrest cushion they provided.

Their faux leather is definitely much better than Secret Lab based on my comparison with Secret Lab 2018 Omega.

I went with their fabric reskin. Can feel that the quality is thicker and better than SLís softweave. But the surface or RE is rougher than SLís softweave.

After wfh for the awhile and perhaps due to the heat, sweat and dust (Iím using my chair in a non-AC room) I realise that the area behind my knee, the bend between the calf and thighs get itchy at times. It occured like 2-3 days over the last 3 months.

Itís not a lot of occurrence and I can brush it off, but if you hv eczema, this might be a con factor for u.

Have a friend that custom ordered royale ergonomics and he seem to really like it a lot saying quality and all quite good.

I'm not too sure about that personally. I mean, SL does have quite a lot of legit certification on their website so I guess that was also comforting to know. Hopefully my titan softweave can last me some time. lol
