Probably the lightest bib short in the world
High-end - Minimalist - Simple - The new competition-oriented SQ-Short ONE12 R is equipped with the 4 mm thin and tight SQ-Pad 12 R. Only the best materials were used for an uncompromising bib short.
No pressure points
Due to their tight design, the SQ pads retain their shape. They are thus not, as with many high, soft pads unpleasantly pushed inward during the pedaling motion. In addition, the SQ pad 12R is adapted for the very sporty seating position on the road bike, in which the pelvis rotates strongly forward, and positioned in the SQ short.
Durable and flexible
The Ultrasonsic welded seams provide a high wearing comfort and are particularly flexible. The welded seams can avoid friction points and skin irritation. The flexible, breathable straps provide consistent tension with optimal support and stretch.
Hard & Thin
Adaptable & Comfortable
While width is important for a saddle, a pad for shorts depends on shape. The SQlab pad tends to be wider in the rear area and converges into a very narrow center. The sitting bones thereby seat fully on the maximum shock-absorbing area without creating folds. No shortcoming in terms of ergonomics or comfort.

Waist: Measure at the narrowest part of the waist.
Hip: Measure at the strongest point of the butt.
Why is the SQ Pad hard and thin?
A too soft saddle usually becomes very uncomfortable after approx. 30 – 45 minutes on the bike. The sit bones sink in so far, that sensitive soft tissue such as muscle and tendons are aggravated. After approx. 30 – 40 minutes a dull deep pressing pain sets in. The sinking in of the sit bones also causes the perineal area in men and the lower positioned pubic bone arch in women to be subjected to higher pressure. Specifically soft padding will effectively stop the blood flow. The question now is why we ride taut, slim saddles, but make a soft saddle again with the thick, super-soft padding that we often wear in our cycling shorts. The effect of the soft saddle (in this case: hard saddle + super soft pad) then again leads to the serious impairments of sinking, the restricted blood supply and the increased friction.With the SQlab Pad Technology we have succeeded in eliminating the effect of a soft saddle. After a long development time we have developed an ergonomically high-quality pad with the characteristics hard, thin and firm.
Why haven´t tight trouser pads been around for some time?

For racers who are sich of diapers!
SQ-Pad 12R has an adapted shape for the very sporty sitting position on the road bike, in which the pelvis rotates strongly forward. The pad, which is only a maximum of 4 mm thick, initially feels exceptionally firm and high quality. The pad is thereby not – as it happens usually with high, soft pads – pushed uncomfortably inward during the pedalling motion and is made for racers in a very sporty riding position.
+ 4 mm thin
+ High density
+ Fast drying
The SQ Short ONE12R is made for competition and has a tight fit. Please note, for the choice of the right pant size is the hip circumference crucial. Measure horizontally at the strongest point of your hips.
