Arms
Life is available in a no arms, fixed aluminum, height adjustable and a high performance arms version. Details for each are below.

No Arms: nothing to see here, folks.

Fixed Aluminum Arms: 9.5" above the seat these arms do not adjust at all but they are very handsome as they are aluminum. Don't worry, you don't rest your elbows on metal. The armpost is aluminum with a soft pad atop. You have 18.5" in between armrests.

Height Adjustable Arms: 6.8" - 10.8" in range for placement above the seat and 18.25" between the armrests. All you do is lift a lever on the outside of the armpad to adjust arm height.

High Performance Arms: These arms also height adjust exactly like the above, but also can move forward/back and left/right. The armpads adjust in an orbital motion and lock into a fixed position by pressing the button on the inside of the pad. The inside distance between the armrest ranges from 17.25" - 19.75".

Which should you go for? It really depends on your needs. Most people opt for the high performance arms for several reasons. The features allow you to rest your shoulders and maintain an ergonomic posture no matter what height you or your desk is. It also allows you to quickly move them out of the way when exiting the chair.

Lumbar Support

If you opt for the lumbar support it is made with slow recovery foam and attaches magnetically to the back suspension fabric. It height adjusts to anyplace you want. How awesome is that? You have the option of 3 colors for the lumbar in the Vibe upholstery: black, dark grey (poise) and light grey (glam). Made of polyurethane, Vibe is a lightweight, tactile fabric with all the performance benefits of vinyl.
