Pros of the Aeron
The Aeron has an easy, big range of recline for an office chair. The tilt tension lets you adjust the amount of weight it takes to let the chair slide back. Onceit’sadjusted, you can sink slowly backwardperfectly.
The Aeron is made up of Pellicle fabric that allows air and body heat to pass through the seat and backrest to maintain ventilation and cooling comfort.

Lack of Standard Adjustments
The Aeron lacks features such as a seat depth adjustment and a back-height adjustment, which usually come standard with other ergonomic task chairs.
The Aeron’s armrestshave some padding, but they can be hard to adjust because the lever mechanism is located on the back and requires both hands to operate.

Ready to Find the office Task Chair that's Right for You?
Now that you have a list of options, how do you choose the perfect office chair?
The truth is, it can be challenging to pick a chair when you've only read about it. To find the chair that fits you best, you may want to sit in it for a couple of hours and test the adjustments for yourself.
Luckily, you can do just that with our Chair Test Drive Program. If you plan on buying ten chairs or more, you can test up to three for one week. After you choose your chairs, a workspace partner will deliver them to you and even perform an on-site demo!
