SQ Lab Saddle 612 Ergowave Active S-Tube

" I felt instantly at home on the Active 612 saddle, and headed right into six straight days of riding at this years Trans-Rezia with minimal prior bedding in period. This is easily the most comfortable and supportive saddle I have used to date, and there was no pressure anywhere there shouldn't be" - Paul Aston Pinkbike.com

SQ Lab 612 Ergowave Active S-Tube Bike Saddle

SQLab are one of the few saddle companies that have conducted studies and tests to prove that pressure is reduced along the perineum with their designs.

The first question in saddle choice is what shape suits my bottom. Now, only a bike fitter and / or trialling a range of saddles on your turbo will get the right answer, but we have to start with searching what's out there first. 

SQLab's may be right for a lot of riders, but we specifically recommend them for riders looking to:

  • Reduce pressure on the perineum (bit between bottom and bits)
  • Move pressure from the front of the saddle to the back 

Most will say, but sure doesn't everyone want to do that?!

In fact, we have known riders who want more pressure on the front. Do think about where your pains are and what would feel like the best outcome.

We think that a lot of you out there are looking for less pressure in these sensitive areas, that's why we are backing SQ Lab's in the UK.

SQLab have created a large range of saddles, and if want less pressure at the front and more at the back (we can't remove pressure completely), then you would like to know which SQLab is right for you.

So assuming you have bought into the SQ Lab concept here are the questions you should ask yourself:

  • Do I want more cushioning?
  • Do I want less width on the nose?
  • Does your saddle need to withstand trail conditions?

Ergowave or Ergolux?

SQ Lab are aiming to create a saddle for everyone so have a huge range. At the moment Kit Radar are only listing the Ergowave designs. If you are a commuter and need more cushioning than the above, then the Ergolux might be a better option - please contact us as we can still send those to you.

With SQlabs's active technology the 612 Ergowave was specifically designed to accommodate the requirements of both competitive and leisure cyclists both on the road or mountain bike.

The raised rear section and wave like shape contouring from the rear to the front make it perfect for a dynamic riding position on the road or mountain bike.

This listing is for the 612 Ergowave, here are the other versions we stock

  • 612 Ergowave (Active or Standard) - least cushioning, thinnest nose
  • 611 Ergowave (Active or Standard) - medium cushioning, medium nose
  • 60X Ergowave (Active or Standard) - most cushioning, thickest nose

Active or Standard?

SQ Lab have created a really interesting Active technology. The construction of the saddle allows a degree of movement of the pelvis in the horizontal plane. The natural pelvic rocking movement evident in walking is now possible while cycling. 

SQ Lab has created a technology to tune the saddle! Best understood in this video:

 

 

Finally, work out your saddle width. You can use the following professional guidelines to measure it, but in essence it is the distance between to two boney bits on your bottom - any old ruler and piece of paper will do. 

 

 

Get perfect rearward support and an optimal pressure distribution from the wave-like shape and raised rear section, 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. The flat but slim SQlab MaxContact® saddle nose and the firm padding of the 612 were both specifically designed for the needs on the road bike.

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 sit bones.
