The well thought-out shape, with the wings pulled down far, make for the perfect combination of comfort and driving dynamics.sqlab.WebImage.Griffe.710.PT01

Secure grip and comfort.
This relief wing, which is located at the very edge and deeply extends downwards, frees up space for securely grasping the grip body in all situations. The raised end of the grip externally nestles against the side of the hand, while the inside is somewhat more elevated. As a result, it specifically relieves the ulnar nerve, the median nerve and the carpal tunnel pass.
Ergobar offers a secure grip and optimum support for your fingers on the front and bottom of the grip.
The 710 is available in sizes S, M and L, thereby ensuring an excellent fit.
The grip clamp specifically moved from the outer to the inner side to increase shock absorption and comfort on the side of the hand. As a result, the SQlab grip series is no longer compatible with twist grips.

Grip sizes: S, M, L

Maximum surface area,
support and comfort.

The 702-grip’s extra-large wing supports the wrist. Pressure is comfortably and evenly distributed thanks to its very large surface area. The raised end of the grip externally nestles against the side of the hand, while the inside is somewhat more elevated. As a result, it speciÿcally relieves the ulnar nerve, the median nerve and the carpal tunnel pass. Ergobar offers a secure grip and optimum support for your fingers on the front and bottom of the grip. The 702 is available in sizes S, M and L, thereby ensuring an excellent fit.

Grip Size Measurement
since 2006

The personal grip size is important.

Grip size is the measurement from the tip of the middle finger to the crook of the thumb.

This is because the fingers grasp the grip precisely by this measurement.

sqlab.WebImage.Griffschablone

 

 

 

In the new SQlab grip series, sizes differ in range, length (only the 702,710) and shape.

The grip circumference is measured in the first third.

This corresponds to the position of the middle finger.

Grips 702 and 710 are higher on the inside than on the outside, which matches the natural position of the hand.
This provides excellent relief to the ulnar nerve and, above all, the carpal tunnel pass with the median nerve.
In addition, the outer edge of the hand is often insensitive, as karate fighters often demonstrate impressively.
 
Raised
The raised grip end picks up the side of the hand and supports the hand.
As a result, pressure is distributed across a large area.

The clamp moved from the outside to the inside, which increases shock absorption and comfort on the side of the hand.
Thus, the SQlab grip series is no longer compatible with twist grips.

Pressure measurement at
the SQlaboratory

sqlab.WebImages.Pressure.Measurement.EN

Pressure measurements are carried out with an electronic pressure measuring foil/mat. We have been using pressure measurement since 15 years in the saddle development.

Together with a manufacturer of pressure sensors, we were now able to further develop the system and make it flexible enough to be able to wrap the printing mat around the grip. Some of our premium dealer partners also use our pressure measuring system in the consultation.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
sqlab. WebImage.Druckmessung.Ausgangsbasis.schlechtergriff
 
  Base - round grip
 
The extremely high pressure on the outside causes irritation of the ulnar nerve.
The consequences are pressure pains and numbness on the little finger and ring finger. The pressure at the carpal tunnel exit is only about 30% of the maximum pressure, but it is very close to the red area.
 
 
 
sqlab.WebImage.Druckmessung.702.griff
 SQlab GrIp 702

The pressure on the outside is clarified in green area.
The pressure at the point of the carpal tunnel exit is less than 40 % of the maximum pressure on the outside of the hand.

Both nerves are sufficiently relieved.

 

sqlab.WebImage.Druckmessung.Griff.XY.griff

 

Grip XY with a wing

The pressure on the outside is still in the green area. The pressure at the site of the carpal tunnel exit is approximately 80 % of the highest pressure. Complaints of the carpal tunnel and carpal tunnel exit, especially after prolonged use over several months or years, are possible.

 

 

 

Result:

Overall, the pressure of the new 702 and 710 is distributed over a very large area.
Accordingly, the maximum pressure is about 25 % lower than comparable ergonomic grips.
 At the point of the carpal tunnel exit the pressure at the 702 could be reduced to less than the half.

 

sqlab.WebImage.Druckmessung.710.griff

 

 SQlab Grip 710

The pressure on the outside is slightly higher than of the 702 but still in the green range.The pressure at the point of the carpal tunnel exit is only about 30% of the maximum pressure on the outside of the hand. Both nerves are sufficiently relieved.

 

 

 

sqlab.WebImage.Druckmessung.Griff.ZX

 
MTB grip ZX! with wing

The hard, stiff wing reduces the pressure only slightly compared to a round handle and additionally distributes it unfavorably to the carpal tunnel exit.

 

 

 

 

Relief through
702 and 710

sqlab.WebImage.ResultRelief carpal tunnel exit
The unloading wing must be placed as far outside as possible to keep the carpal tunnel exit largely free and reduce the pressure. Already easy, but constantly recurring pressure, over a long period of time, can lead to problems such as a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
  
Relief of the ulnar nerve pressure
The measurements show that the maximum pressure usually occurs on the outside of the palm of the hand. At this point the ulnar nerve, which supplies the two little fingers, disappears.
The carpal tunnel

A kink in the wrist especially a laterally overstretched wrist can narrow the carpal tunnel. Similar to a kinked garden hose, through which no more water flows, the nerve information can no longer be transported through the narrowed carpal tunnel. This problem only occurs in healthy people when the joint goes to “block”. The cause is almost always a handlebar with too little bending to the rear.

  

Note:

Our grips are not medical devices. We can not promise, that the handles cure your discomfort. So the important thing is, that you listen to your body and try to change something if you have problems like this. Additionally ask your doctor for advice or please feel free to contact us directly.

 

Numbness feeling

sqlab.WebImage.Problemlösung.Taubheit1

 

 

 

 

Ring finger, little finger

The cause is too high pressure on the outside. Here runs the ulnar nerve.

 

 

 

sqlab.WebImage.Problemlösung.Taubheit2
 
 
Index finger, middle finger, thumb

1. Cause is a lateral, overstretched wrist, or a kink. This is usually caused by a too straight handlebar, with too little bending to the rear.
2. Cause is too high pressure on the carpal tunnel exit, often caused by relieving wings, which relieve the ulnar nerve, but under unfavorable circumstances load the median nerve.

 
 
 
 
Note:
The nerves run from the hand through the arm over the shoulder and neck through the cervical spine into the brain. Much can happen on this path. Very ofen, the muscles on the nape of the neck are already so hard on the nerves that the fingers react relatively quickly to numbness.
 
 
 
 

Secure grip

 

Secure grip comes firstsqlab.WebImages.Griff.702.Griffsicherhheit

Security comes before comfort. Thanks to our size system, the external wing and the Ergobar, you can always fully grasp the grip. The non-slip surface structure and the premium material are pleasant to grab and simultaneously provide a secure hold. The relief wing is at the outer edge on the 702 and 710, making it easy to provide support and a secure grip. You will appreciate this interface during your complete riding experience but will become even more evident the next time you need to brake hard.

Danger!
In relaxed driving no problem. But a strong emergency braking would not be possible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Secure grip

SQlab Ergobar

 

Angular and two-dimensional

Handlebars are round, and grips are also mostly round because it is simple.
But fingers are anything but round: They easily slip on a round object and cannot hold on unlike, for instance, a flat table corner.

The grip offers a very relaxed touch point while simultaneously giving you the feeling of complete control.

Ergobar

The Ergobar is a wave-shaped proÿle on the front and right side, which produces a flat, slightly angular grip bottom.

A perfect fit for angular, bent fingers.
