Description at a glance

The 611 ERGOWAVE® S'Qantara is identical to the 611 ERGOWAVE® apart from the microfiber cover material. 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 611 ERGOWAVE® ltd. S’Qantara saddle is the special model for 2018. SQlab is starting the new cycling season with this model. The saddle impresses you with its unique cover material – durable microfiber with a suede appearance. Motorsports fans will love this saddle, as they are mostly very familiar with this material from steering- and seat covers. The stylish S’Qantara saddle cover impresses you not only with its clean, leather look, but it is also light-weight and durable. Of course, the S’Qantara offers a unique feel while riding and it is a visual as well as an ergonomic enhancement to your bicycle.

Advantages and disadvantages

The material, a durable microfiber in a suede look, is very special and basically not recommended for everyone. The advantage of the saddle cover is its light weight, the grip and, of course, the stylish appearance. As a disadvantage with this cover, however, a longer drying time should be mentioned, along with a clearly soil-sensitive material. Additionally, this cover is not entirely as long-lasting as a conventional cover and this should be considered when purchasing.

S’Qantara – is an SQlab saddle that you ride because this very special material captivates you.

Performance Based Ergonomics

The shape - developed in a research project and in collaboration with the University Hospital of Frankfurt and the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. Government funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. For the first time, we were able to calculate the forces occurring deep within the structures of the body and the maximum load between the cyclist and the bike saddle. The final result is the new ERGOWAVE saddle shape for a more ergonomically agressive sitting position on the road and mountain bike, with the top marks among the maximum load in all tests.

Perfect fit

The correct width saddle is a prerequisite for maximum performance.


Available widths: 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 cm

Sleek rear

The raised back section provides more rearward support and ensures efficient power transmission.

Saving Energy

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.

Lower saddle nose

The level and lowered saddle nose applies less pressure to the sensitive areas of men and women alike.

Biomechanics

Pelvis movement of up to 7° is made possible by the SQlab active Technology, which from a biomechanical point of view simulates the natural movement of walking and increases the efficiency of the pedalling motion. At the same time, the spinal discs are relieved and the pressure to the sitbones is reduced.

Adjustable active Technology



The proven SQlab active technology has been adjusted for race and MTB applications and is now firmer.

Center Dip

The slight dip in the center of the saddle reduces pressure to the sensitive tissue areas of the perineum. 

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.
