- New by SQlab: M-D Line
- Two new saddles for trekking and city bike
- More space means more pressure relief
- Active technology supports the natural movement of the pelvis
When it comes to saddle sores, SQlab has been the expert for years. Their ergonomic saddles are made to prevent saddle sores and to make every ride as comfortable as can be. SQlab now comes with a completely new line: the M-D Line. The comfort saddles in this new product range are based on the current 602 Ergolux Active and 621 Active.
The M-D Line has been developed together with medical experts to create the ideal pressure distribution over the saddle. This provides maximum relief for the sensitive areas of our body, one of the conditions for riding as comfortably as possible. The M-D Line stands for Maximized Dip and features a single elevated level at the back. The elevation distributes the body weight over the sit bones and significantly relieves the pressure of the perineum.
SQlab adds two new comfort saddles to its range
The new line by SQlab includes two new saddles, the 602 M-D Active and 621 M-D Active. The 602 M-D Active is designed for trekking bikes with a moderate or upright sitting position. The 621 version is perfectly suited for comfortable city bikes with a slightly forward or an upright sitting position.
The current 602 and 621 models by SQlab are not unfamiliar products in the cycling shops, already designed with SQlab’s Active and Ergolux technology. But some cyclists require extra pressure relief during their rides. For the 602 M-D Active, the renewed shape with a single elevated level provides up to 15% more relief of the sensitive areas. The new 621 M-D Active will replace the 621 Active and provides 5% more pressure relief than the old model. The amount of relief of the perineum will also be sufficient for people with an age-related, enlarged prostate.
SQlab Active supports natural pedalling movement
The 602 and 621 M-D Active are both equipped with the SQlab’s Active technology. The construction of the saddle allows a degree of movement of the pelvis in the horizontal plane. As the pelvis has the freedom to move with the natural pedalling motion, the risk of developing discomfort or pain in the lumbar spine, the pelvis and the hips is minimised. Pedalling becomes more relaxed and premature fatigue is prevented. It also means that the spinal discs can align themselves correctly and will not experience an asymmetrical load. The spinal discs are therefore less exposed to potential injury.
The degree of movement of the saddle can be adjusted with different types of dampers. By using the black damper provided with the new saddles, the maximum weight allowed for the saddles is increased to 150 kilograms.
