If you are passionate about video games, you already know how important it is to have a comfortable and durable chair for long gaming marathons. There are plenty of gaming chairs on the market, but not all of them are built to withstand heavy use, let alone animal scratches.
And we know how difficult it can be to enjoy the fun of gaming when we have to keep our beloved pets away from our precious gaming area. But this is no longer a problem with the new Quersus ICOS 1.2, a gaming chair that offers you all the comfort you need, but at the same time comes with a pet scratch resistant fabric.
Below we share our experiences and opinions about the Quersus ICOS 1.2 and why you should consider it if you have pets at home.
Design and comfort
Let’s start with the design and finish of the ICOS 1.2. This is a model with an ergonomic design that adapts perfectly to the shape of your body, making it very comfortable for long gaming sessions. It is made from high-quality materials, including a sturdy metal base and high-density foam in the seat and back.
The first sensation you get when sitting in the chair is the solidity of the proprietary cold self-expanding foam. It uses a system that strategically places air pockets in the foam to provide a firm but very comfortable seat.
There are countless chairs that suffer from an extremely loose seat that will sag over time. This is not the case. Although we have only had the chair for a short time, everything suggests that it will remain firm for a long time.
On the other hand, the seat has a profiled design that allows you to place your feet in the correct position so that your legs do not fall asleep.
As for the backrest, it is designed to adapt to the body and is very wide, making it suitable for all types of people. And the armrests are covered with a soft material so you can enjoy a comfortable support for your arms.
The metal base and high-quality castors ensure that the chair is stable and won’t wobble during use. It also has a weight capacity of up to 150kg, making it suitable for players of all sizes.
The Quersus ICOS 1.2 gaming chair also offers a wide range of adjustments to suit your preferences and needs. You can adjust the seat height, back angle and armrests to find the most comfortable position for you. In addition, the chair has a rocking function that allows you to lean back and relax during game breaks.
Firstly, the armrests can be adjusted in 4 directions and the chair can be reclined up to 140°. It has an advanced mechanism that allows you to recline more ergonomically by moving the seat and back to different degrees.
The headrest is large and can also be adjusted in height. You can also adjust the distance between the seat and backrest. This is very useful and not something you will find in all gaming chairs.
What you will not find is the ability to adjust the lumbar support, something you will find in other options such as the Secretlab Titan Evo. So if you are looking for a chair that adapts perfectly to your lumbar region, you should know that the Quersus ICOS does not have this feature.
Versions and finishes
The Quersus ICOS is available in a variety of materials. To start with, there are three types of material to choose from. First, there is the synthetic leather version. Then you have another version upholstered in hydrophobic and fireproof fabric. And then there is the one we have, which is the Pink Flamengo fabric version, which, in addition to being fireproof, is also resistant to scratching by animals. Within the different versions you can choose from a wide range of colours.
You also have the option to have your name or logo printed on the headrest for an additional charge. This gives you the opportunity to add a personal touch to your chair.
Resistance to animal scratches
One of the most outstanding features of the Quersus ICOS 1.2 gaming chair is its resistance to pet scratches. If you have pets at home, you know how difficult it can be to keep them in good condition. With this chair, you won’t have to worry about scratches from your pets as it is made from a material that protects the chair from damage.
The fabric is soft to the touch, yet tough and durable, ensuring that the chair remains in good condition despite use and interaction with your pets.
In addition, the velvety finish makes it easy to wipe off stains and liquids, preventing them from adhering and damaging the appearance of the chair.
Veredict of the Quersus ICOS 1.2
For me personally, the Quersus ICOS 1.2 gaming chair was a revelation. As an avid gamer, I needed a chair that was not only comfortable, but also resistant to scratches from my adorable pets. And the ICOS 1.2 has exceeded my expectations in every way.
From the moment I sat down, I could feel the quality of the materials and the ergonomic design that conforms perfectly to my body. The cold self-expanding foam is firm yet incredibly comfortable, providing exceptional support during long gaming sessions. In addition, the metal base and high-quality castors ensure that the chair is stable and durable, even for larger players like me.
But what really impressed me was the resistance to animal scratching. I have two naughty cats at home and before I got the ICOS 1.2 my previous chair was full of marks and scratches. I don’t have to worry about that with this chair. The durable material has proved to be virtually indestructible, protecting the chair and keeping it in perfect condition.
In conclusion, the Quersus ICOS 1.2 is the perfect solution for my needs as a gamer with pets. Not only is it comfortable and durable, but it also offers exceptional resistance to pet scratches. I would highly recommend this chair to anyone looking for a superior gaming experience and a chair that will remain immaculate over time.
As we have seen, the ICOS 1.2 is a great option in the wide range of gaming chairs available. However, there are other options worth considering. One of these is undoubtedly the superb and stylish TITAN Evo chair from Secretlab.
This is another chair that we use on a daily basis and after two years it is still in perfect condition and extremely comfortable. Benefits include a 4-way adjustable lumbar support, a removable head cushion and magnetic armrests. It also has a less sober design and you can buy it in editions with exclusive designs of famous games and eSports teams.
What it doesn’t have, however, is a fireproof material or resistance to scratches from dogs and cats, so depending on your needs, you may be more interested in one or the other.
The Quersus ICOS 1.2 chair is surprisingly comfortable, with a fabric that is very soft to the touch and characterised by high strength. I was most impressed with the latter. I have a naughty cat that used to leave marks on my previous chair, but with the ICOS 1.2 this is no longer a problem. The sturdy material has proved to be really durable and protects my chair from potential damage. I also love the customisation that this chair offers. I can adjust the seat height, back angle and even the armrests to find the most comfortable position for me. This allows me to have a gaming experience that is completely tailored to my needs. All in all, the Quersus ICOS 1.2 is an excellent investment for any gamer looking for a sturdy, comfortable and customisable chair. I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who wants to enjoy long gaming sessions without worrying about scratches from their pets.
