Noblechairs epic tilt mechanism right or wrong?

    hi, so I recently purchased and received a new noblechairs epic series and I love it, however when I lean back and forward with the tilt mechanism, it makes a medium/quiet clicking type noise quite consistently every time I go back and forward. It still functions properly and it’s not overly annoying I’m just not sure if it is meant to be this way. Do all noblechairs tilt mechanisms have this slight clicky noise when leaning back and forward?

    Any comments on this would be appreciated as the not knowing if it is faulty or not is the thing annoying me I think!

    Thanks

    Oh, I called up overclockers and they tested three of them in the office for me and said they were making similar noises, just a quiet wet clicky noise if you listen closely kind of thing. Is yours not doing that at all? As I've been told it's normal just yesterday

    it depends how much is does your head in, it might go away. Try a little bit of 3 in one oil maybe

    Hi, I've also got this problem on all three of my noblechairs. OcUK have sent me all three of their models to review over the past couple of years and they've all either had the issue from day one or have developed it.
    I'm fairly sure it comes from the piston because if you lie the chair on its back with the wheels off the ground, there's a bit of play when you move the 5-prong base around.

    Just wondering if anyone has found a fix? It drives me mental sometimes.

    I did return the chair and receive a full refund from overclockers, I plan on ordering another one but I think I'm going to go for the Icon this time around, maybe I just got unlucky with the noise on the tilt not sure.
