A saddle should fit like a pair of shoes!
A prerequisite for maximum comfort and relief is the coordinated saddle width, so that it is guaranteed that your seat bones lie completely on the saddle. This is the only way to properly relieve the sensitive perineal area in men and the usually lower pubic arch in women. Available widths: 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 cm
The raised back section provides more rearward support and ensures efficient power transmission.The level and lowered saddle nose applies less pressure to the sensitive areas of men and women alike.
The slight dip in the center of the saddle reduces pressure to the sensitive tissue areas of the perineum.
The wave shaped ERGOWAVE® profile which contours from the rear to the front offers a perfect form-fit shape for most sitbones. The rider does not need to be seated in an inefficient and tiring sitting position and all energy can be used for forward propulsion.
Low and flat
The flat saddle nose has a slight curvature which provides maximum contact area providing and associated reduced pressure. This shape provides a narrow saddle nose which minimizes chafing on the inside of the thighs while pedalling. The SQlab MaxContact® concept has proven valuable in other race models over the years and has been improved for the new ERGOWAVE® models.
The weight-optimised 611 ERGOWAVE® Carbon was precisely matched to the requirements of off-road riding and perfected to meet the demands of all-mountain and enduro riding.
At 150 g, it is the lightest model in the 611 ERGOWAVE® series.Please make sure that the clamping device of your seat post is compatible with high-oval struts when mounting.

The weight optimised 611 ERGOWAVE® Carbon was precisely designed to accomodate the requirements of off-road cycling and perfectly meet the demands of All Mountain and Enduro use. With just 150 g it is the lightest 611 from the ERGOWAVE® range. The wave-like shape and raised rear section provides perfect rearward support and an optimal pressure distribution which reaches deep into the body structures resulting in improved power transmission. The lowered nose in combination with the dip provides optimal pressure relief for the perineal area. For an even better pressure relief, especially on long technical climbs, the saddle nose of the 611 was made approx. 4 mm wider than that of the 612, but just as flat and with largest possible surface area. The padding was designed for the specific needs on the MTB with better dampening properties than the 612 making it perfect for rough off-road terrain. Additionally, a premium quality Kevlar material protects the saddle in the exposed places. Due to its flex properties, the saddle is most comfortable up to 75 kg. The maximum load should not exceed 90 kg.
Note on compatability of carbon rails:
Ensure that the seatrail clamping mechanism of your seatpost is compatible with oval shaped seatrails.
In some cases, specific seatrail clamps are available seperately to allow the fitting of saddles with oval shaped rails.
In the case of the *Ritchey WCS 1 Bolt Mast Topper the item that you would need is the 1 Bolt Clamp Kit 7x9.6mm (denoted by the letters DF).
