Triathletes are among the toughest athletes in the world, capable of suffering but still perform at the highest levels possible. The extreme aero sitting position in combination with long riding units present an ergonomic challenge. The NEW 613 R Carbon Triathlon saddle allows the rider to perform at an optimal level, without having to fret saddle pain.
The 613 ERGOWAVE® R is designed with a raised rear section, allowing the pressure to shift towards the pubic bones for the first time in triathlon. The perineal area receives relief and the additional rearward support improves power transmission. As a positive side effect skin irritations are reduced.

The reason why this adaptation of the SQlab step saddle has been released five years after the SQlab ERGOWAVE® shape is in the details. Creating a harmony between position and height of the step and combining it with the waist, dip and width as well as the drop at the tip of the nose involved significant development efforts.
The 613 R provides the perfect shape for one of the most complex sitting positions in cycling. A total of 18 years of SQlab experience make up this innovation: from all kinds of sitbone widths and different anatomies to solving customer concerns, we develop saddles not only to enhance comfort and relief but to boost performance in competitions as well.
Note on compatibility of carbon rails:
Ensure that the seat rail clamping mechanism of your seatpost is compatible with oval shaped seatrails. (7 mm x 9.5 mm height)
In some cases, specific seat rail clamps are available separately to allow the fitting of saddles with oval shaped rails. In the case of the *Ritchey WCS 1 Bolt Mast Topper the item that you would need is the 1 Bolt Clamp Kit 7x9.6mm (denoted by the letters DF).
