    3rd place with the Innerbarends at the National XC Cup 2016!

    sqlab news max holz 3 platz mtb bundesliga innerbarendsSQlab trainee Max Holz rides to 3rd place in the overall standings of the KMC National MTB XC cup 2016.

    Max has been doing his apprenticeship with SQlab for a few weeks now and has been heavily involved in the development of the Innerbarends. Max and his team mates have continually been testing the newest versions of the Innerbarends throughout the evolution of the new design. Sanding, filing, modelling – every aspect of the profile is optimised in detail. At a power data acquisition study on the track Max was also one of the test riders. On the track Max could already ride the same lap times with the Innerbarends while using 14 Watt less power. From this point onwards the small bar ends have been on Max’s handlebars for every race.

    “On the race track at Titisee-Neustadt it was important to be able to ride the long climb as quickly as possible while not completely exhausting oneself. The Innerbarends allowed me to vary my position from time to time reducing the overall level of exhaustion. Also, I am sure the more aerodynamic riding position helped a lot as the climb was long with a consistent but not too steep gradient. On the technical descends I did not find the Innerbarends obtrusive in any way. Even though one may need to get used to the new look, I will certainly be using the Innerbarends from now on in all my future races.” Max tells us with a smile on his face.

    A new experience that has paid off!

    ERGOWAVE® - Performance Based Ergonomics

    SQlab newsgrafik ergowave USThe new shape – a new era for SQlab! Developed in a research project and in collaboration with the University Hospital of Frankfurt and the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. Government funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. For the first time, we were able to calculate the forces occurring deep within the structures of the body and the maximum load between the cyclist and the bike saddle. The final result is the new ERGOWAVE saddle shape for a more ergonomically agressive seating position on the road and mountain bike, with the top marks among the maximum load in all tests.

    The big product launch will be at the Ziener Bikefestival from April 29th till 1st of May in Riva. You will find us in the Liteville store, directly at the traffic circle in Torbole. Come and satisfy yourself!

    Scientific research confirms the SQlab unisex saddle concept!

    sqlab news studie sporthochschule koelnCurrent scientific research undertaken at the Sports University of Cologne confirms both the unisex and saddle width concepts developed by SQlab in 2002. The research analyses the requirements of a perfect saddle by three key criteria: gender specifics, distance of the sitbone and pressure distribution in different riding positions. 120 male and 120 riders were measured. The results of the 2 year long research lead to the result that neither male nor female riders require a gender specific saddle, instead the sitbone distance and the riding positions are key. These findings confirm the unisex saddle concepts SQlab has successfully been using for 13 years as well as SQlab’s long standing and successful saddle width system.

    Perforated plate proves successful for sitbone measurements
    The patented measuring method of the sitbones with the perforated plate has been found to be considerably more accurate than the method with gel pads. In experience, the measurement using gel pads often doesn’t measure the sitbone distance as such, but rather the base of the muscles which can result in large variations of the measurement. The SQlab measuring method using the perforated plate or the proven cardboard method are considerably more accurate.

    SQlab - The history

    Toby Hild was born 1970 in Munich, rode motocross bikes in the 80’s and then switched to downhill. Early in the 90’s he founded the company Amazing Toys and manufactured MTB DH components such as handlebars, chainguides and grips. After a big motocross crash in the year 2000, he was forced to stop all sports activities he had been doing up until that point.

    After a lengthy recovery phase he was able to slowly start riding mountainbikes again in 2002 but concentrated more on marathon riding which started out quite successfully with a 3rd place of the SQlab employees team at the Munich 24 hr event.

    In addition to over 25 years of experience in competition sports and being a test rider for manufacturers and magazines, the many accidents and surgeries he has gone through have almost given his body seismographic capabilities. He immediately notices problems with the contact points grips, saddle and pedals as well as an incorrect geometry.

    Since 2001, together with Dr. Stefan Stautde, Toby started researching ergonomics in cycling. The gathered theoretical findings from the teachings of anatomy and biomechanics were compared with scientific research studies, medical reports, personal experience and findings from thousands of cyclists which had meanwhile been measured up.

    The findings led to both the guidebook “The path to a perfect saddle“, which is seen as standard-setting not just by retailers, and a range of components with the aim of making cycling healthier, less painful and more efficient.

    Your expert for ergonomic bicycle components and accessories like bike saddle, grips, handle bars and stems.

    SQlab has specialised in the three contact points of the bike (Hands - Pelvis - Feet). A bicycle saddle must not only fit perfectly to both the male and female anatomy, but also correctly spread the body weight from a medical point of view. The grips must prevent numb fingers, must be easily and securely assembled and be a good fit for the hand. In particular our saddles, and our fitting process, which determines the perfect saddle width, have made us the most successful saddle manufacturer in tests of bicycle magazines. You will not only find the perfect saddle, grip, bars and other components here, but also many tips and tricks around ergonomics and how to correctly fit and adjust the SQlab-products  for the three contact points. You can purchase our products at your local authorised dealer or here in our online shop. However, we highly recommend the purchase through your local authorised dealer as the face-to-face advice and particularly the sitbone measurement is a service only your brick and mortar authorised dealer can provide.
