Steelcase Gesture and Leap V2 Office Chairs – First Impressions on $1000 ergonomic task chair

The Steelcase Gesture and Leap office chairs are some of the most recommended ergonomic computer chairs at the $1000 price point. I tested them both out for a couple hours and here are my first impressions.

I tested these chairs for a couple hours at a nearby POI Business Interiors http://www.poi.ca/locations/ You need to book an appointment before going to their showroom.

But you can also find more information on these chairs from Amazon and directly from the Steelcase website:

1000$ is just to much when there are some good alternatives for 300-400$

try wau 2 aka STORM-MK2 aka MERRYFAIR WAUCHAIR

Mirko Cukich says:

Thank you for testing out these two chairs. So how did you feel after a few hours of being in them? Also, when testing did you have a chance to sit for a while in either and work on your laptop ?

UpperRobin29 says:

When you do chair reviews, you should test the wheels and how well they roll.

I’ve been using the Gesture for over a year now and I am very happy with it.
I do understand that it is quite an expensive chair but if you’re working in front of a computer all day long, consider it to be more of a work tool.
A chair like this will last you much longer than a cheap one, which actually makes it less expensive that the price tag might suggest.

Tommy Tran says:

more chair reviews!!! they’re awesome

LeBeautiful says:

I want one…badly

Moe Zuiter says:

HiGH quality.

D dabdab0132 says:

These chairs look good but are not very adjustable. Lack backrest height, and backrest tilt. The PT78 has these and costs half.

Mani Norbit says:

Just looks like cheap plastic everywhere with clever design features, is it really worth $1000.

Sean Harding says:

Did you have any opinion on the various upholstery options? At least online, it looks like the Leap offers both “Buzz2” and “Cogent: Connect” fabric options, while the Gesture only offers Cogent: Connect (I’m not considering leather because I get too hot).

Gineton Alencar II says:

What shoes are you wearing in this video? They look comfortable and fairly minimalist.

Car Cam Central says:

Great content! I was thinking of trying out both chairs. I wonder if more companies are using a universal design as they know most people won’t touch adjustments. Don’t know how well it works for “enthusiasts” but for everyone else – might be a win.

TheIsolatedPhoenix says:

I would give up an arm or a leg for that Leap Q_Q

frozenwalkway says:

could you review a capisco chair thanks for the vids

Shi Shisa says:

I know, you may don’t like gaming chair. But I want see you test it, and listen your opinion.

obvious_humor says:

I will never understand paying more than $200-300 for a chair. And I mean a really good chair, like an executive chair rated for 6+ hours that I bought for $179 on clearance and still use 10+ years later.

Frankie Repalda says:

nice chairs..if do visit Hawaii you can also be barefoot too lol when I get to show you around

A. L says:

Try the Autonomous Ergochair

eneko says:

I’ve own a Gesture for a year and a half now and its amazing. Really confortable, the arms are great, and the built quality is awesome.

Thodoris Psathas says:

Awesome review! We want for sure more! Also David check the Think chair from Steelcase. It’s a great chair and also cheaper!

ReviewTechAFRICA says:

We have the Think in our lab, which is a great chair. After seeing this video I thought Leap looked like just an upgraded Think. I went to a liquidator and sat on a Leap, definitely more comfy than the Think. Even though the liquidator was selling Leaps for $250 I bought it new from an authorized dealer. I’d rather have the warranty and assurance that everything is authentic (not refurbished with shitty upholstery/casters). tl;dr thanks for the great review.

GameBrosTMT says:

have you seen the teknion contessa? quite a bit more expensive than these but you should check it out

JAYDIP DUNGARANI says:

your editing and voice awesome

Johan Snitt says:

Sitting in a Gesture right now. Very happy with it, far superior to the Ikea chairs I’ve owned the past.

Blake M. says:

Hi David, was wondering about the padded, upholstered looking armrests on the leather Gesture in the video. They look much softer than the typical armrests. I don’t seem to see that upgrade option on the Gesture.

kittygomew says:

could you review okamura contessa chair?

Sucrose says:

looks like an amazing chair, but the price is almost as much as my rent.

jordan Zimmerman says:

Herman miller makes better looking chairs and is an overall better brand

fpsintelligence says:

Remember kids; buy second hand chairs.

nitesh neela says:

i’m from toronto too . il probably go check them out . can you do more chair reviews ? probably like best under 200 / 500 /1000 kinda video 😀
