Arguably the chair’s greatest asset is its adjustability. The neck support, seat height, lumbar support, and armrest height are all adjustable to meet the unique needs of individual users. The cushion on the seat is a pleasure to sit on, even for up to four or five hours at a time. 

In this review, we’ll look at the chair’s specs, design and features to help you determine if it’s the right chair for you. If it isn’t, we’ve got a wide range of options to choose from in our best ergonomic office chairs (opens in new tab) buying guide.

Flexispot OC13: Setup and usability

The chair came in a very large cardboard box which would be strenuous to carry for individuals living up multiple flights of stairs. It was possible to carry the box solo, but would be much more comfortable with an extra person to help. 

Setting the chair up was a fairly straightforward process, with instructions and all the necessary tools provided. However, a second pair of hands is almost indispensable to put it together. The wheels were challenging to slot into the base of the chair, requiring a strenuous effort to push them into place. Whilst instructions did come with the packaging, it did not contain text and the diagrams were usable but not particularly intuitive.

The cushioned seat is around 3 inches deep, providing plenty of comfort for the user’s sitting bones, and is designed to hold a maximum weight of 275 lbs.

Flexispot OC13: Design

  • Seat depth: 18.5 inches
  • Seat width: 18 inches
  • Seat height: 18.5 - 22 inches

The Flexispot OC13 is fitted with five multifunctional castors, allowing the chair to roll around quickly and quietly on all floors materials, be it carpet, parquet or tiles. The chair has a mesh fabric for the back and seated area, which is extra breathable. This is very convenient if you’re sitting for extended periods of time, especially in warmer temperatures. 

It comes in a single grey and beige color scheme, with no other color options available, which some users might find disappointing. However, it looks very sleek and modern, and we think it’ll fit nicely into most home office spaces.

Flexispot OC13: Features and performance

This high–quality chair is a great choice if you’re looking for long-lasting comfort whilst working from home. The breathable mesh back of the chair keeps the user from getting hot and bothered. We found the fabric padded seat really comfortable, and we were very happy sitting for hours on end.

A fantastic level of adjustability is offered through variable seat height, armrest height and recline angle, all of which can be actioned through levers situated by the seat. The curved shape of the seat back, alongside the lumbar support, ensures the user can maintain a strong posture throughout the day. We were able to adjust the chair just right to fit our needs.

The wheels are smooth, quiet and easy for the user to control, a real delight. The chair makes very little noise when you move it around, which is convenient if you’re sharing an office space with someone else.

Should you buy the Flexispot OC13?

The Flexispot OC13 is a fantastic office chair. While it's only available in one color, it is visually pleasing, ergonomic and robust, providing maximum comfort for a professional office setup. 

It's definitely on the higher end of the price scale, but we think it's well worth the money. For the comfort and support you get, it's a great investment if you're spending hours sitting down in front of your computer.

If this product isn't for you

If the Flexispot OC13 isn’t quite what you’re looking for, we've reviewed plenty of other options in our best ergonomic office chairs buying guide.

The Modway Articulate Mesh Office Chair (opens in new tab) is a fantastic option for those looking to build out a workspace on a tight budget, with dedicated lumbar support and a tilting function to help you recline. 

If it’s a chair designed for heavy and tall bodies that you’re after, the La-Z-Boy Trafford Big and Tall Executive Office Chair (opens in new tab) is for you, offering a design that promotes good circulation and reduces sitting bone pain.
