What does this mean with reference to the SQlab MaxContact® concept?
The physical law for calculating pressure is:
Pressure = Force/ Area
Calculating pressure at the saddle:
Saddle load = Body weight / Sitting Area
More safety and comfort while dynamic sitting
The area of the saddle nose should be as large as possible but as narrow as necessary. So, how can a saddle nose be narrow enough to not interfere with pedaling, yet provide maximum contact surface in order to provide relief of pressure when the upper body is shifted forward?
The SQlab MaxContact® concept has a saddle nose which is both lowered and also very flat. Thanks to this simple trick the nose provides a larger contact surface area than conventional saddles for those cases when you have to shift your upper body forward creating increased pressure.
