Saddle, pedals, and grips are the three critical contact points between rider and bike. And as rides get longer, our saddle communicates with us about fit problems through messages called pain or numbness. SQlab addresses these problems with high performance saddles custom fit to the rider to allow for the body’s natural movements. Press play to learn more.
SQlab addresses discomfort issues by using a fit system to determine which of their saddles best matches up with the rider’s sit bones. Their latest Ergowave saddle positions the rider in the ideal spot for comfort and power transfer with anatomically designed contours.
Side-to-side movement is allowed by designing in slight movement of the saddle shell on the rails. This movement is then customized by removable inserts that regulate the movement.
And if you’re the weight conscious type, you can get this dialed fit and a carbon saddle that has all these features minus the insert. Weight is a mind-blowing 140 grams.
