The special thing about the new 6OX Infinergy® ERGOWAVE® active „Made in Germany“ is the foam of the saddle, which is no longer made of classic PU foam, but of the BASF Infinergy® material known from running shoes. This material is very robust and brings comfort to a whole new level, especially in off-road conditions, due to its quicker recovery. SQlab and Oechsler then jointly optimized this process for saddles.
The 6OX is the optimal saddle for long and steep climbs on the EMTB while providing optimal relief, even on bikes without an engine. This means that the rider no longer has to take power-consuming protective positions, so all the energy is available for propulsion.
"The 6OX Infinergy® ERGOWAVE® active saddle is SQlab’s first 100% German-made saddle. It promises a comfortableride and makes use of eco-friendly materials. The foam is made of the popular BASF Infinergy® material which isvery robust and brings the comfort to a completely new level, especially off-road due to the faster reset."
A saddle must fit like a pair of shoes! Because if a saddle is too narrow, the pressure is applied in spots where it shouldn’t. In 2002 SQlab was the first saddle manufacturer to invent a system to measure the distance between the sit bones and calculate the optimal saddle width. All SQlab saddle models are now available in up to four different widths. This guarantees that the sit bones lie flat on the saddle. This is the only way to relieve the sensitive perineal area in men and the usually deeper positioned pubic arch in women. The new 6OX Infinergy®
The saddle comes in four different widths and therefore offers the optimal fit for men and women alike.
The SQlab active function, which allows the saddle to easily follow the pedaling motion, becomes softer and smoother. The lateral movement, which increases comfort and is easy on the intervertebral discs, was one of the functions that led to many test victories for SQlab saddles in recent years. The strength of this damping can be adjusted from very soft to almost blocked and adapted to the body weight using the three elastomers included in the scope of delivery. The shell consists of a new plastic/carbon fiber mix and enables the active function via the material flex.
The SQlab Step Saddle shape, which has been tried and tested for twenty years and improved again and again in detail, ensures pressure distribution according to medical aspects - away from the perineal area and towards the sit bones. The saddle nose, which is lower in level, ensures a better pressure distribution at the sit bones and at the ischial branches and therefore presses less strongly on the sensitive structures of the perineal area. For men and women alike. The dip in the middle of the saddle is sufficient to ensureexcellent blood and nerve supply.
The SQlab saddle shape with the raised seating surface is perfect for uphill riding anywayand brings more power to the pedal even on straight routes.
The special feature is the foam of the saddle, which is no longer made of classic PU foam but of theBASF Infinergy® material known from running shoes. This material is very robust, almost indestructibleand brings the comfort to a whole new level, especially in off-road use, due to the fasterrecovery. The cover is not pulled over the entire surface of the saddle as in classic saddles. There are only„tapes“ in the important places.(BASF and Infinergy® are registered trademarks of BASF)
Even though the main production of SQlab saddles remains in Asia, the 6OX Infinergy® ERGOWAVE® active saddle „Made in Germany“ is the beginning of an exciting project that SQlab has been working on for many years. The advantages are not only clearly noticeable for the customer, but also for the environment. The access to the latest materials and manufacturing methods also enables SQlab, in cooperation with top experts in materials research and production, to improve the functions, durability and quality of the product. The local sourcing of SQlab „Made in Germany“ products means from an ecological point of view not only that the long transport route is eliminated, but also that production is extremely efficient and subject to strict German guidelines for harmful substances. Local production, quality assurance and longevity are decisive for the SQlab project.
Adhesive/ harder / permabond
The first "Made in Germany" saddle from SQlab: the 6OX ERGOWAVE® active is the perfect saddle for long and steep climbs on the E-MTB, Allmountain and Enduro bikes. The 6OX ERGOWAVE® saddle has already been available for 2 years now, but not in this version: Made in Germany.
The special thing about the new 6OX ERGOWAVE® "Made in Germany" is the foam of the saddle, which is no longer made 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 in off-road conditions, due to its quicker recovery. The cover is not pulled over the entire surface of the saddle as in classic saddles. There are only "tapes" on the important places. These are automatically attached to the Infinergy ® foam without any glue.
The ergonomic saddle shape provides the right relief and comfort: The wave-shaped elevation of the ERGOWAVE®, which extends from the rear to the front, offers a perfect form-fit shape for most sit bones. This significantly reduces the pressure in the perineal area or female pubic arch.
Also the flat, slightly curved saddle nose, which is lower in level, ensures less pressure on the sensitive areas for both men and women. For even better pressure relief, especially on longer climbs in the terrain, the saddle nose has been designed wide, with a flat and as large a contact surface as possible.
The new active system has not only become lighter, but also much smoother. This increases comfort for the sit bones as well as relieving pressure on the intervertebral discs. In particular, the mobilization of the intervertebral discs is now clearly noticeable. The active-movement is even more adjustable in the new models, as the elastomers have become smaller and lighter. A prerequisite for maximum performance is the perfect fit for the athlete and therefore the saddle is available in four different sizes.
The production technology was developed very successfully by Oechsler in Ansbach, a large automotive supplier, for a large sports products manufacturer a few years ago. SQlab and Oechsler then jointly optimized this process for saddles.
From an ecological point of view, the local sourcing of SQlab "Made in Germany" products means not only that the long transport route is eliminated, but also that production is extremely efficient and subject to strict German guidelines for harmful substances. Local production, quality assurance and longevity are decisive factors for the SQlab project.
