Wolfgang Sacher 

SQlab Teammember since: 2005

Discipline: Cycling (road race, individual time trial, track 1 km (time trial) and 4 km pursuit)

Ergonomics in cycling is important for me:because I urgently need pressure relief, especially with my handicap (one-armed). Not only on the hands, but even more importantly in the seat area.  Because of my handicap I cannot ride out of the saddle and relieve pressure occasionally. I always have to sit! Therefore I had great pain in the area of the sit bones, coccyx and enormous pressure pain and great numbness in the area of the pubic bone. For more than 10 years now I have been sitting on saddles from SQlab in the areas of road bike and MTB. My experience: without pain, optimal performance!

Greatest successe: 17 times German Champion; Gold-Silver-Bronze Paralympics Beijing 2008.

Motto: Only who fights can lose. Who does not fight, has already lost!

Maloja Pushbiker Team

If you do something with passion, you've already won. That's the Pushbiker's idea. It unites the love of cycling. The urge to break with conventions and inspire young riders. Founded in 2010 and at home in the Bavarian Oberland, track and road are the terrain of the pushbikers. In addition, there is a women's team (Maloja Pushbikers Fem) and their own junior team (Maloja Pushbikers Future Stars).

Sitting in the saddle for hours on end is the order of the day with the boys. The Maloja pushbikers mainly swear by the triathlon saddle 613 and the race saddle 612 Carbon.

Lexware Racing Team

More than 200 children have been attending mountain bike training and regional races in Kirchzarten week after week for many years. Sportsmen of the SV Kirchzarten regularly take the top places in the races of the Black Forest Kids Cup. As a logical consequence of this successful youth work, Daniel Berhe founded the Lexware Mountainbike Team in 2008.

In the Lexware Mountainbike Team, talented young people have since found the conditions that make mountain biking at the highest level possible. The decisive idea of the team from the Hochschwarzwald is to support talented people on their way to the elite category. The further development of individual skills - on the mountain bike as well as personally - is just as important as the successful combination of sport with school and job.

The goal for 2020 is to qualify for the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo.

German Technology Team

A team that we have been successfully supporting for 3 years.

The team puts its knowledge, the team spirit and the well-known professional youth work on broad feet. The top of the German Technology Team is mainly to be found in the XC Bundesliga and World Cup Circus. In addition to the well-known races, the team also covers the marathon scene and events such as the Bike Festival in Riva. 

Among others, Maximilian Holz will be there. Born in Munich, he has been responsible for ergonomics, research & development in the performance area at SQlab since completing his bachelor's degree in sports science.
