We reported some time ago that the SQlab 6OX Infinergy Ergowave active MTB saddle is made in Germany. Since then, many things have happened to the ergonomics experts: in addition to the 60X, two other “Made in Germany” models will soon be presented. In our “Introduced!” let’s take a look at the current SQlab 6OX Infinergy Ergowave active and manufacturing in Germany for you today.

They are detail
The most striking feature of the SQlab 60X Infinergy Ergowave Active MTB Saddle is the padding: instead of plain PU foam as before, the padding material here is made of BASF Infinergy material, which is perhaps known from one or the other shoe racing professional. Indestructibility, rapid recovery and high comfort are the individual points that characterize the material.
The Infinergy material is so robust that it does not require additional coverage – instead it has “ribbons” at the most important points, which create a special look. The individual strips of tape are automatically connected to the adhesive-free Infinergy foam in cooperation with the automotive supplier Oechsler from Ansbach and thus hold perfectly.
Another peculiarity, which you already know from the previous SQlab saddles, is the step principle: the nose of the saddle, which is very low thanks to the shape of the stepped saddle, relieves the pressure on the sensitive area of men and women and therefore guarantees a less pressure. Thanks to the raised back, you do not slip backwards, even if you are going uphill longer and steeper: the extra grip material on the raised step offers additional support.
Compared to the first presentation with the announcement that from now on this saddle would be produced in Germany (Article: SQlab 60X Ergowave now “Made in Germany”: SQLab changes production), the already known technology of the SQlab active saddle has also changed : the new version has about lighter elastomers and more movement. Three elastomer shock absorbers in three different degrees of hardness are included, so that you can perfectly adapt the active effect corresponding to your body weight. The function protects the intervertebral discs and increases driving comfort.
Speaking of adjustment: As with the other models, SQlab also follows the adjustment concept for the 60X Infinergy Ergowave active model by measuring the seat bones – depending on the distance between the seat bones, choose one of a total of 4 widths from 13 to 16 cm.

For transparency: the posts in our Highlights section! they are created by MTB-News, but their production is the responsibility of the manufacturer. That is why they are clearly marked as advertisements. However, the editorial experience, which is thus co-financed, is in the images and texts. This also allows for the production of the full variety of independently produced tests, trials and service items. Featured entries published before April 15, 2021 are edited independently.
