SQlabs 6OX Saddle

The SQlab saddle 6OX is perfected for the special use on the E-MTB as well as for the Gravity Bike. The wave shaped 6OX profile which contours from the rear to the front offers a perfect form-fit shape for most sit bones. The raised back section provides more rearward support and ensures efficient power transmission. The grip material on the raised back provides additional support to the rear. In addition, the saddle cover is robust, especially at the edges.

• Win one of two SQlab 6OX Ergowave saddles

 Ha I just bought one of these for my MTB and a 612 for my gravel bike. They work great - I've had WTB, Ergon, Selle, and was having issues with numbness. No issues with the SQ Lab so far - also seems to ease any lower back soreness I used to get. Would buy again!

 I have the 60x on the way for my mtb as well! Haven't been having much numbness, just some pain down there lol. Hoping it will be more comfortable. I actually measured my sit bones before I ordered it so I'd get the right width - I think I've been riding on saddles that are too narrow for me for years! We shall see.

Also, even though they say its for E-MTB and "gravity" I assume it will still work fine for trail/enduro riding? And I was wondering how thick/supportive the padding is as I want something soft, but still able to provide decent support.
  • 3 0
 @gPark: They're not super soft... The 60X has a bit more padding than the 612 but yeah - they're still low-profile seats overall. They really just have you sitting only on your sit-bones with no pressure on the gooch. Just read the instructions they provide and you should be good to go.

 Been on a 612 on my Slash for two seasons. Best saddle I've ever used.
  • 1 0
 @gPark: I've got a year on my SQ Labs saddle, and it was a game changer for me. apparently I need a wider saddle (I'm a small guy) I tried a wider WTB and it wasn't the right saddle. Now when I ride, I feel my sit bones resting on the saddle and it is so much more comfortable. The WTB might have worked, but it was too soft, and I never felt the support on my sit bones the way I do with the SQ Labs.

 The opposite. I'm pretty sure I won't win, only because I didn't click the box.

 I did subscribe to Race Face, and did get an email informing me that I didn’t win the wheels, telling me who did. Can’t remember if that was a “Win it Wednesday“ contest, or another contest

 I wonder if you have to subscribe to win. would certainly narrow down the entries.

 I've been eyeballing saddles and am this " " close to buying something. This SQLab 6OX and their 611 & 612's have my eye along with the new Ergon's BUT, I need help/input...
My current saddle I can pedal without chamois for about 45min before I start noticing it for the wrong reasons. With a chamois its about double that time. This is straight seated pedaling, climbing without standing or extended periods of standing like on a DH section, etc. On bigger days (5k feet of climbing, etc.) my ass/saddle relationship becomes my limiter instead of my legs and I have to cut my days "short". I read/hear people talk about riding for 5, 6, 7hr+ days even without chamois. I'm sure those numbers probably aren't fully seated pedaling but, still... I can't go more than a 3hr mixed day of pedaling & standing. At this point a "comfortable saddle" to me means an ass/saddle relationship that would allow me to ride until my legs are smoked. What's a reasonable amount of seated pedal time to rate a saddle against; 2hrs, 4hrs, etc.?

 Sit bone width correct? If saddle's too narrow sit bones will be sore, too wide top of inner thighs will be sore. All modern saddles have a perineal channel in them so assuming that's not it.

Time depends, used to do lots of 5hr days on a Fizik Nisene pain free, SQ Lab 60x I'm good for 1 1/2 hrs.

 I'm a convert to sqlab. I did NOT find that I could ride without a chamois, actually the opposite, that I needed a better chamois, so I bought some of their shorts as well.

This was because instead of putting pressure everywhere, which is what caused every other saddle to make me go numb, these saddles put more weight on the sit bones directly, causing that area to get sore. but with the saddle and their shorts, I find that, for the first time in 20+ years of riding, i can sit in the saddle for hours without going numb. It's possible that I would have had less problems with sit bone pain if I weren't overweight, however.

 SQlab - german, expensive, confusing, inpenetrable documentation. Also by far the most comfortable saddles ever made and I've tried everything. I've ended up putting these on every bike I own.

If you ride all-mountain and need something you can pedal for four hours comfortably that won't break in half and won't break your wallet: 610 non-active CrMo. Measure your sit bones and order the correct width.

 Why can’t someone make a saddle w/storage for plug kit or small multi tool? I think I’d buy one.

 Or a standardized interface for stashing things under saddles - even if it's just a standardized plastic rail - and let the stash-stuff manufacturers (OneUp, Topeak, etc) do what they do best and innovate to maximize that space?

 Does anyone know of Waki has been banned yet?
  • 5 1
 His profile page is gone, but I don't know if it was a matter of being banned, or if he took his ball and went home.
  • 2 3
 Why do people not like him? I have heard people talk about him a lot. What's the big fuss?
  • 6 3
 Dang, what the heck. What was he banned for? I've been here for years, chuckling and/or eye-rolling at his uh comments.
  • 3 1
 @benbenbeast: oh boy, here we go! His comments sparked a lot of controversy, as many would agree, and many would disagree. It seemed as though if he didn’t stop, he would be banned, and he even teased mods in his final comment. Then it appears as though he removed himself.

 @JacobyDH: Oh ok. Makes sense now
  • 8 4
 @JacobyDH: I bet he's watching anonymously. His opinions could be harsh, but when he stuck to bike stuff, the man seemed right on (mostly). When you've ridden hard for 20+ years, you learn from the trials and errors. I hope his mushroom farming is keeping him happy.
  • 6 4
 @Geochemistry: He’s mushroom farming?

I agree on that, when he stayed on task he was great. Thats why I pleaded with him to change, or stay on topic seconds before he deleted his account. I’m sure he’s watching anonymously, If not that he now has an account. Waki, if you’re still there, I wish you the best.

 @benbenbeast: Humorless people didn't like him. People were saying he made racist comments. To me, his comments ranged from surprisingly insightful to completely incoherent, but I never saw racist. And he could get tiresome, but it was pretty clear he only wanted to pull the piss out of people. I'm not sure how anyone took him too seriously.

 @TheR: This. The way I see it is anyone who invests that much time commenting on forums deserves to stick around. He types more on PB in a day than I do in a few months. Don’t like it, don’t read it. I’ll miss him TBH.
  • 4 4
 @DirtbagMatt: He typed more in a day than the people who actually worked at Pinkbike. In truth, they probably should have been paying him for all the content, not banning him, if that was the case. Haha! He’s really been as much a part of this site as Kazimer and Levy. It will be odd not having him around.

 @Ryanrobinson1984 Wha?! where is the thread that he went off the rails? I like Waki. Definitely polarizing though

 @Geochemistry: I grew mushrooms many years ago, it sucks. You have to harvest and clean 2x/day everyday and the spores are a biohazard long-term. You also must maintain a sterile lab to propagate the mycellium. It's a massive PITA. So glad I moved on to other things.

 I only use the saddle that’s on my bike, and I guess I have never had problems. Should I upgrade? Or are the stock saddles okay?

 If your saddle is comfortable, there's no real reason to change it.

 If the saddle isnt a good fit you will know. If what the bike came with doesn't cause discomfort your money is better spent on something else.

 I really wanted to try one of these, but couldn't justify the price for a saddle I couldn't try before I buy..

 I got one a few months ago just to try out. If ever there was a saddle that requires a chamois, this is it. Low profile with minimal padding and lots of hard angles. The contact points are all in the right place though.

 @mobiller: I ended up going with an Ergon saddle... and it's like 90% comfortable, but I still wonder about the SQ Lab...

 The 610 is somewhat affordable, and from my experience, will tell you if you like the shape or not.
  • 2 1
 Been on the 611 for the past year, and it's been the best saddle in 30 years of riding. Just follow SQLab's instructions. The one I got is a 160g carbon railed beauty.

 Love these saddles. Never could get them to to work on my road bike, but the best I've found for mountain.
