MADE IN GERMANY
What began as a „Made in Germany“ project is taking on ever clearer shape. After the successful launch of the 6OX Infinergy® ERGOWAVE® active saddle, other saddle models manufactured in Germany are now following. The benefits are not only clearly noticeable for the customer, but above all for the environment. Access to the latest materials and manufacturing methods also allows SQlab to work with top experts in materials research and manufacturing to improve the functions, durability and quality of the product.
From an environmental standpoint, the local sourcing of SQlab „Made in Germany“ products not only means that the long transport route is eliminated, but also that manufacturing is extremely efficient and subject to strict, German guidelines for harmful substances. Local manufacturing, quality assurance and durability are crucial for the SQlab project.
The special feature of the new Infinergy® saddle series „Made in Germany“ is the foam of the saddle, which no longer consists of classic PU foam, but of the BASF Infinergy® material known from running shoes. This material is very robust and brings comfort to a completely new level, especially off-road, due to the faster rebound.
The cover is not pulled over the entire surface of the saddle as in classic saddles. There are only „tapes“ in the important places. These are connected to the Infinergy® foam automatically and without glue.
Precision is very important, especially for rails, and no one can do that better than a Kuka robot. The technology of the robot for saddle struts was developed in Switzerland. The Swiss Carbon Rails are installed in the 611 Infinergy® ERGOWAVE® active 2.1 Carbon.
