Bates Innova with extended contourbloc. 
The contourbloc offers unprecedented security, as your leg rides in and behind the bloc, eliminating any ‘lifting’ of the leg without any restriction. The unique tree is sculpted to be wafer thin in the waist, eliminating potential interference. 


Cair panels with Bates risers for extra panel depth and an easy change gullet, currently fitted with a medium gullet, we can change the gullet to suit and we can take out the risers if you need a lower profile.


Stamped size O which is a Bates 16.5 -17", we measure the seat at 17".


Made in 2009 


Includes a fleece cover.
