The step pulled forward does not take up the body weight over the actual seat bones. When sitting in a triathlon position, these point towards the sky and therefore fall out. The increased contact surface carries the pubic bones and leads to a better distribution of pressure.
Another part is the depression in the middle of the saddle. Without having to accept the disadvantages of a complete hole, the recess improves the pressure distribution a little. After the pressure is largely calculated by the size of the contact surface, the 613 works with a slightly wider saddle nose, which in turn slightly reduces the pressure on the sensitive regions.
Of course, only the best materials are used and these also reduce the pressure load a little. The result is a very fast product with a maximum optimised pressure distribution. As with all SQlab step saddles: suitable for men and women alike.
An active riding style also brings the body weight forward onto the saddle nose. Round may sound comfortable and safe, but often it is not. To maximise the area and thus reduce the pressure, the saddle nose of the SQlab Maxcontact principle is flattened. This provides more space with a very narrow saddle nose at the same time.
More free space less pressure
The deeper saddle nose of the SQlab step saddle concept offers more room and a lot of free space for the dam area. All SQlab saddles are built on this concept developed in cooperation with the Munich urologist and extreme biker Dr. med. Stefan Staudte.
SQlab saddle width system
All SQlab saddles are available in three to four different widths
Due to its large volume grid structure, the Marathon Foam has a high proportion of closed air chambers. This results in a spring characteristic curve that provides comfort values for thin upholstery layers that are otherwise only achieved with large-volume, thickly padded saddles. Due to the high air content, the specific weight is extremely low. The padding always remains firm even under high, long-lasting loads. The closed structure prevents water from penetrating into the upholstery
K18 is a modern high-tech functional material. Currently, according to SQlab's experience, the best material for bicycle saddles. Initially, SQlab only equipped the sporty top models.
Super robust cover with similar properties to Kevlar (e.g. used for the production of bulletproof vests and ensures long life at the edges of the saddle)
