Alera Elusion Review: Unique Features

The main advantage of this chair seems to stem from its simplicity. Sometimes a lack of options or a simple design can be reassuring for some people. There are other benefits to this chair, however, and this Alera Elusion review sheds light on some (if not all) of those.

Simplistic, Modern Design

While there’s only one color to choose from – black – that doesn’t mean the chair will be out of place in most office spaces. In fact, one of the first things you notice about this chair is its simple design.

It’s modern enough to distinguish itself from the more mundane office chairs, but it is simple and practical enough to look at home in most office or gaming room setups. You’ll enjoy the mesh back which not only supports your back and spine for extended periods of time, but the mesh prevents pockets of heat becoming trapped between your back and the chair itself. No more gross sweat puddles once you’ve finished the task at hand.

Polyester Seat Fabric

The seat fabric is made from 100% black polyester upholstery, making it easy to clean (no high maintenance leather here). Speaking of the seat, the padding in this chair combined with the waterfall edge of the seat is ideal for any keyboard warrior.

Ergonomic Features That Work

For those who are not familiar with the waterfall edge, it’s a design feature that promotes proper blood flow and circulation. This simple design gesture prevents fatigue from setting in.

Like most office chairs, the Elusion comes with a pneumatic lift that allows you to adjust the height of the chair. We noticed that particular tall users will enjoy and benefit the most from this feature, but that doesn’t mean this chair isn’t ideal for everyone. In fact, the chair height can be adjustable from a height of 18- 1/8 inches to 21- ¾ inches.

Every workaholic needs the occasional rest. You can do so easily by tilting back in your chair for a quick break or even to sneak a quick nap in or two. You can adjust how far the seat tilts back with the multifunction mechanism, so that way you don’t lean back and feel like you’re about to fall out of the chair.

There is also the option to adjust the swivel or tilt settings of this chair as well. For those of you who are thick boned, you’ll be delighted to know that this computer gaming chair can handle whatever you throw at it, within reason of course. The chair can easily support a 250lb person with no complaints or worry of reduced comfort.


  • The multi-function mechanism enables you to adjust the chair by choosing between the back angle, adjustable tilt angles for both front and back.
  • Support and comfort from a breathable mesh material.
  • Contoured seat cushion that promotes circulation and blood flow with the waterfall edge.


  • Troublesome setup experience. We wish we could say that this chair was a breeze to setup, but unfortunately, it wasn’t.
  • The instructions that came with the chair weren’t the greatest. If you’re someone that requires a step by step walkthrough with words, you won’t enjoy the picture-book style of this manual.
  • This chair have a very basic appearance with only one color choice.

The Verdict

Our Alera Elusion review reveals that this chair is a great ergonomic chair for the limited or basic budget. While the color and style choices are entirely limited, the features of this chair offer the benefits of ergonomics in an affordable package.
