Global Ride Ergonomic Chair

item#: GLB138

The Global Ride chair combines several innovative ergonomic features with a stylish seating design. The Ride chair has a smooth synchro knee tilt that maintains constant contact to support users in all postures. The synchro tilt and seat height can be adjusted while seated with the gear shift-type controls on the sides of the seat. The chair also features fully adjustable arms that change height, angle and pivot with a single touch; these provide proper support for the arms of a wide range of users.

Additionally, a fully upholstered option is available for the highest padded comfort. The mesh back and fully upholstered options each have an adjustable lumbar support that can be set by the user while seated.
