Product Description

Leap is a highly ergonomic chair that adjusts to fit your body, so you don’t have to adjust your body to fit the chair.  Thanks to its LiveBack technology, the Leap chair back changes shape to mimic and support the movement of your spine.  And with its simple and intuitive adjustments, it’s easy to adjust your Leap chair to fit you comfortably for the entire day.  Steelcase Leap chair complete features are pneumatic seat-height adjustment, variable back stop, height-width-pivot-depth adjustable arms, black plastic frame, shell, base and arms, adjustable lumbar support, hard casters and fabric.

From the Manufacturer

A Perfect Fit.

You won’t find small, medium and large here. The Leap chair adjusts to fit your body, so you don’t have to adjust your body to fit the chair. Thanks to LiveBack technology, the Leap chair back flexes to change shape as your back changes shape, providing stable support and encouraging unrestricted movement. And with its simple and intuitive adjustments — like separate controls for Lower Back Firmness and Upper Back Force and adjustable armrests that move in four directions — it’s easy to adjust your Leap chair to fit you comfortably for the entire day.

Arm Pivot
These Four Discoveries Became The Guidelines For Designing The Leap Chair:

The spine doesn’t move as a single unit. When you recline, your upper spine moves backward and your lower spine arches forward.
Each individual’s spinal motion is unique. Even for people of identical size, age, and gender, each spine moves differently.
The upper and lower back require different amounts and types of support. Your lower back requires firm, constant support while your upper back requires more support as you recline.
Vision and reach impact your posture. When you recline in traditional chairs, the distance between you and your work can increase, which in turn can strain your eyes, arms and neck.




A Healthier Way To Sit.

Movement: Moving helps reduce pressure on the spine, sends oxygen to your muscles, and increases blood flow to your brain. Movement is healthy and your chair should support your body as you move.
Orientation: Changes in posture help you stay comfortable and more attentive. Leap seating’s Natural Glide System enables you to comfortably recline without straining your eyes, neck, or arms.
Fit: Your body is unique. You need a chair that easily adjusts to fit you, your preferences, and how you work.
Sustainability: A chair that is good for people should also be good for the environment. Every material, every stage of a Leap chair’s life, is designed to respect and nurture human and environmental health. One more reason to be comfortable with Leap.

Leap is up to 94% RECYCLABLE

Steelcase worked with McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), selecting only materials that assessed safe for human and environmental health.

  • Cradle to Cradle certified
  • Indoor Advantage certified
  • BIFMA level 2 certified
Leap has also undergone a complete Life Cycle Assessment, evaluating the chair’s lifelong impact on the environment — from materials extraction through production, shipping, use, and end of life.

I work on a computer most of the day, so I am sitting a lot.
Andrea Whalen Stone
I tried the Herman Miller embody, Herman Miller aeron, Steelcase leap, and countless others at office depot, stables, and by visiting tech-based offices.
Douglas
They can move as far forward as 6.5" to the front of the seat cushion, and as far back as 8.5".

The good:

1) The backrest does conform to the back in a way no other chair does, it is a remarkable feature that will do wonders for your back. It is, however, very difficult to find the correct setting. I played around with the settings for months before I felt I had the right one.

2) Adjustments are very easy to make, and you don't have to get up and bend over to make any of them. There are numerous adjustments available, and they are simple to figure out. One downside to this is that you will spend a lot of time looking for the right combo.

3) You can lean way back in the chair. The backrest will recline without any tilt in the seat base (which has no tilt option whatsoever). This can relieve the back in a way that few other chairs can. Most other chairs tilt in sync with the backrest, which does nothing to relieve back stress.

4) The armrests are the best of any chair I know of.

5) The lumbar support adjustment is unobtrusive, effective, simple to use, and does not give the chair that weird space-age appearance as in other well-known ergo chairs.

The bad:

1) This chair is HARD HARD HARD on the tush. It is like sitting on a park bench. I weigh 185. My wife is much lighter and doesn't mind it at all, but I cannot sit in it more than two hours per day. I have tried 8 different cushions for sale on the market, none help (if you bottom out, they make no difference). You cannot buy good cushy foam anywhere, don't even bother trying. You'll need so much that it renders the chair pointless.

2) The recline resistance tension works in a way such that the backrest will stick-and-hold in a position based on the amount of pressure you put on it while reclining.

Color Name: Black
I have been using Steelcase Leap chair for past 3 years. Previously, I used Herman Miller Aeron at work. Plus, I tested out Steelcase Think, Herman Miller Mirra and Celle when I shopped for the chair.

Bottomline, Steelcase Leap chair is more comfortable than Aeron. Main difference is that Leap is more flexible and comfortable in many positions, while Aeron is more rigid and you have to sit in a single position.

Comfort: Leap is comfortable when you sit straight up, lean back, or slouch. On the Leap, when you lean back (tilt back) or slouch (I know it is bad to slouch but we all do it to some degree), the seat bottom slides forward with your butt. In addition, the seat back stays in contact with your lower back and still provides support. On the Aeron, the seat back and bottom is always 90 deg to each other. And you have to sit perfectly straight. Even when you lean back, the seat back to seat bottom remain in same angle. And it forces your body to remain in same posture as you try to lean back. Not as comfortable as the Leap. Also, I find the Aeron to be uncomfortable in the lower thigh area, where the front edge of seat is hard plastic and digs into the back of my thighs. The Leap seat front is flexible (but not adjustable) and can bend down.

Fit: I'm 5'10" and 175 lbs. Leap chair has only 1 single size, but it fits me better than Aeron's 3 sizes. The Leap chair's seat size and back height fits me perfectly. On Aeron's size B(medium), seat back is too low and digs into my should blade. On Aeron's size C (large), the seat bottom is way too big for my butt.

Adjustments: Leap and Aeron have similar adjustments: seat height, tilt, tilt tension, tilt limiter, arm-rest height, lumbar support.

Color Name: Black
I've been using a Leap chair for nearly two months, and overall have been very pleased with it. Very helpful in helping me manage my sciatica pain. Not as stylish looking as others, but I think comfort should be more important than style in an office chair.

The search for a good chair was not easy. I first tried several from places such as Office Depot and Staples. All were nicely priced, but none scored high on comfort. Next up was Herman Miller. I tried the Aeron, Celle, Mirra and Embody and found them either nice but way, way too expensive (Embody) or not comfortable in the seating area (the rest). All looked great, however, but style was way down on the list (after comfort and affordability).

Looked at some Human Factor chairs (don't recall the model I tried) and again, decent but didn't seem worth the price.

Steelcase was next. The Think chair was nice, but not all that supportive in the lumbar area. The Leap chair proved to be the winner - absolutely love, love, LOVE how the back reclines without tilting the seat area. It's a goodsend if you have sciatica pain. Other key points of value are the arm rests (very highly adjustable and soft to the touch), adjustable lumbar support, and how the front lip dips down automatically when you lean forward to alleviate pressure on your thighs. The seat pan adjustabiility is also key for comfort.

But the price was still a sticking point. Fortunately, there are many used Leap chairs available, and I was able to get one in great condition from a local seller for about one-third of the price of a new one.

If you go the used route, be sure you understand if you are getting a version 1 or a version 2 chair. The V2 chair is the newer model, and has some (in my opinion) nicer features.
