The lightweight 611 active for a dynamic riding style on the All Mountain or Enduro bike and with just 220g it is the lightest in its class. The proven SQlab step saddle shape offers more relief in the pressure sensitive areas for men and women alike. The construction of the active saddle allows a degree of movement in the horizontal plane , mimicking the natural motion of walking. This increases comfort, relieves the spinal discs and reduces the pressure to the sit bones. The saddle nose of the 611 active is 2.5cm longer when compared to conventional saddles. The longer nose allows elements of Motocross riding techniques to be used providing more control and more space to move freely for an advanced dynamic riding style. Also the rear section and the saddle wings provide more surface area for better rider contact. In Motocross we also commonly see a step in the seat, which in this case does not provide relief, but instead more rearward support when in the forward seated riding position.
For a dynamic riding style the 611 provides the optimal basis:
- seated on the rear: perfect for riding longer distances with perfect perineal relief
- seated forward in the step: the centre of gravity is somewhat lower, perfect rearward support is provided, yet the rear sit bones still rest on the raised rear section which in combination with the MaxContact® nose shape still provides great relief in the perineal area.
- seated all the way forward on the saddle nose: ideal for steep ramps, here we see the second advantage of the longer nose next to the increased control.
Note on compatability of carbon rails:
Ensure that the seatrail clamping mechanism of your seatpost is compatible with oval shaped seatrails.
In some cases, specific seatrail clamps are available seperately 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).
