The Steelcase Leap chair is available with or without arms. There are some applications where arms get in the way of tasks. For computer users we recommend Steelcase arms because they're some of the best on the market and they can lower to about thigh level. The highly adjustable arms move in and out, forward and back, up and down and pivot, so you can find the exact position for optimal support and comfort.

The Steelcase Leap Chair has long been a top choice of those who spend eight to ten hours or more in their chair. Unlike many chairs, the Leap offers a streamlined design that fits a wide range of body types and is easy to adjust, comes in an extensive line of fast-shipping fabric options, and provides excellent ergonomic support and comfort.

We have heard our customers in warmer climates who love the Leap's ergonomics but would prefer something with a cooling mesh back, and we are pleased to offer the Steelcase Leap Chair with 3D Knit Mesh Back. With intuitive Liveback technology, a Natural Glide System that moves forward as you recline, keeping you at an optimal angle and at an ideal vision and reach range throughout the day, and a host of other features available only from Steelcase, the Steelcase Leap Chair with 3D Knit Mesh Back, creates a sitting experience unlike any you've ever had.

Features - Steelcase Leap Chair

  • Responsive LiveBack Technology: The Leap's padded, contoured chair back flexes as you move to provide constant ergonomic back support. Stay seated in total comfort while the Leap's LiveBack Technology promotes a healthy posture, no matter your position.
  • Seat Depth Adjustment: Slide the Leap Chair's seat forward and back until you find the best, most comfortable seat depth and lock it into place. The Leap makes it easy to fit the seat's depth to your body and height.
  • Upper Back Force Adjustment: Customize the resistance you feel as you recline in the Leap chair with an intuitive dial on the left side of chair. This makes rocking back and forth more comfortable.
  • Lower Back Firmness Adjustment: Add even more lumbar support by adjusting the lower back firmness, which supports your lower back and helps prevent hunching and lower back sagging.
  • Natural Seat Glide: This features promotes spinal health by allowing the Leap Chair's seat to glide forward as you lean back, which keeps your posture at a supported and comfortable level.
  • Adjustable Arms: The Leap Chair's arms are incredibly easy to manipulate. They move in and out, forward and back, up and down and pivot, so you can find the exact position you need for any task or position.
  • Cooling Comfort: The Leap Chair's back foam and progressive back slat system also keep you cool and comfortable, so you get the breathability of a mesh chair with the superior support of a foam padded upholstered chair.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The Steelcase Leap Chair with 3D Knit Mesh Back includes the same features that the regular Leap Chair does. So why would you want mesh instead of a cushioned back? Some people, particularly those in warmer climates, prefer the extra airflow you get with mesh. You're already making the right call by going with the Leap chair -- whether you get the 3D Knit Mesh Back or not is a personal preference.
