SQlab 611 Ergowave Active
The 611 Ergowave active was precisely designed to accomodate the requirements of off-road cycling and perfectly meet the demands of All Mountain and Enduro use. The wave-like shape and raised rear section provides perfect rearward support and an optimal pressure distribution which reaches deep into the body structures resulting in improved power transmission. The lowered nose in combination with the dip provides optimal pressure relief for the perineal area. For an even better pressure relief, especially on long technical climbs, the saddle nose of the 611 was made approx. 4mm wider than that of the 612, but just as flat and with largest possible surface area. The padding was designed for the specific needs on the MTB with better dampening properties than the 612 making it perfect for rough off-road terrain. Additionally, a premium quality Kevlar material protects the saddle in the exposed places. The SQlab active technology allows the saddle to follow the biomechanical motion when pedalling resulting in increased comfort, mobilisation of the spinal discs and reduced pressure to the sitbones.
- PERFECT FIT
The correct width saddle is a prerequisite for maximum performance.
Available widths: 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 cm
- SLEEK REAR
The raised back section provides more rearward support and ensures efficient power transmission.
- SAVING ENERGY
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.
- LOWER SADDLE NOSE
The level and lowered saddle nose applies less pressure to the sensitive areas of men and women alike.
- WARNING – UCI
(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 on the sit bones is reduced.
- ADJUSTABLE ACTIVE TECHNOLOGY
The proven SQlab active technology has been adjusted for race and MTB applications and is now firmer. Available in three densities: soft/medium/hard
- CENTER DIP
The slight dip in the center of the saddle reduces pressure on the sensitive tissue areas of the perineum.
- LOW AND FLAT
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.
