The new SQlab Ergowave® saddles were precisely designed to accommodate the requirements of road and mtb cyclists. The wave-like ERGOWAVE® shape is the result of a 3 year research project to optimize the shell shape and to create the raised rear section which provides perfect rearward support as well as an optimal pressure distribution that results in improved power transmission to the pedals. Read on to learn more about SQlab's Ergowave® technology.
The correct width saddle is a prerequisite for maximum performance. Available widths: 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 cm.
The raised back section provides more rearward support and ensures efficient power transmission by providing optimal pressure distribution within the ischial rami.
The wave shaped ERGOWAVE® profile which contours from the rear to the front offers a perfect form-fit shape for most sit bones. The rider does not need to be seated in an inefficient and tiring sitting position and all energy can be used for forward propulsion.
The level and lowered saddle nose applies less pressure to the sensitive areas of men and women alike.
(UCI regulation: The average level of the saddle nose must lie no more than 1cm below the highest point of the saddle.) We ask all road cyclists that take part in UCI governed events to mount the saddle such that the nose points up slightly. To all others: Enjoy the many advantages of the ergonomically perfect Ergowave®!
Pelvis movement of up to 7° is made possible by the SQlab active Technology, which from a biomechanical point of view simulates the natural movement of walking and increases the efficiency of the pedaling motion. At the same time, the spinal discs are relieved and the pressure to the sit bones is reduced.
The proven SQlab active technology has been adjusted for race and MTB applications and is now firmer. Available in three densities: soft/medium/hard.
The slight dip in the center of the saddle reduces pressure to the sensitive tissue areas of the perineum.
The flat saddle nose has a slight curvature which provides maximum contact area providing and associated reduced pressure. This shape provides a narrow saddle nose which minimizes chafing on the inside of the thighs while pedaling. The SQlab MaxContact® concept has proven valuable in other race models over the years and has been improved for the new ERGOWAVE® models.
