For starters, this is a very compact chair that is designed to fit in smaller places, and we love the fact that it’s so lightweight and portable, so it can easily be moved around.
That doesn’t take away from its durability, as the Hon Volt boasts a pretty sturdy 5-star base, as well as higher quality plastic materials throughout the chair, making it very durable. Compared to most chairs in its class, it feels much better put together.
Now let’s go over some of its most important features. The chair comes with a pneumatic lift system, as well as tilting features like tilt tension and tilt lock. It also has a center-tilt feature that allows you to tilt backward, moving the seat as well as the back at the same time.
Since there are different versions of the Hon Volt task chair, there can be confusion on which ones have the center tilt and which ones have the synchro tilt feature. If you want Volt chairs with center-tilt, go for H5701 and H5711 (this one has a mesh back), and if you want synchro-tilt, go for H5703 or H5713.
Assembling an office chair can be a bit intimidating, but the Hon Volt assembly was a breeze. The instructions are easily followed, and you also get all the tools needed for assembly.
