SQlab was the first producer of bike equipment to develop the saddle width system to measure the sit bones and calculate the optimal saddle width.
Find the right saddle
quick and easy
All SQlab saddle models are available in up to five different widths. This guarantees that your sit bones completely rest on the saddle and relieves the perineal and pubic area. Determine the right saddle width now:

Sit bone measurement at home
That's how it works ...
Measure the sit bone distance from center to center and add the value for the respective sitting position.
Select your right sitting position from the positions shown above and add the corresponding value to the measured sit bone distance.
Select the saddle for your personal riding style and in the correct width.

Fitting saddle width
More power- less pain
A saddle has to fit individually
A saddle has to fit individually. If a saddle is too narrow, it squeezes, and exactly where it shouldn't. In 2002, we were the first saddle manufacturer to develop a system for measuring the distance between the sit bones and calculating the optimum saddle width. All SQlab saddle models are available in up to four different widths. This guarantees that your sit bones rest fully on the saddle. Because only in this way can the sensitive perineal area in men and the usually lower pubic arch in women be relieved.
To date, SQlab offers the widest range of saddle models in different widths for every area of use.
The effective saddle width
The specified saddle width is always that of the effectively useable area for sitting on, not the total width of the saddle. With all our SQlab saddles, the effectively useable area is maximised and as little as possible of the saddle width is sacrificed through a strong curvature.
This is how you can check your saddle width
Draw a projection line across the widest point of the saddle. The useable width is from those two points from which the saddle curvature drops off by more than 1cm on either side.
