Dynamic support

Three layers of flexible seating conform to your every shift and move. Four unique performance zones allow good blood flow to the legs, while setting up the lower lumbar for a proper, healthy torso posture all day long.

Healthy seated posture

Our dynamic seating system helps your spine maintain a healthy S-shape. This ergonomic seated position lets you enjoy both comfort and improved performance.
