SQlab 6OX Ergowave active saddle
Ideal for e-bike and gravity
The new e-bike saddle 6OX combines the advantages of the successful saddle models ERGOWAVE® and ERGOLUX®. As part of the product development, the shape of the saddle was adapted and 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 sitbones. 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.
The level and lowered saddle nose applies less pressure to the sensitive areas of men and women alike. For an even better pressure relief, especially on long technical climbs, the saddle nose of the 6OX became a little bit wider, but just as flat and with largest possible surface area. The padding was designed for the specific needs on the E-MTB with perfect dampening properties for rough off-road terrain.
Due to these modifications, the 6OX is the ideal saddle for long and steep climbs on the E-MTB and at the same time, even on bikes without an engine, it provides an optimum relief. The wave shaped 6OX profile which contours from the rear to the front offers a perfect form-fit shape for most sitbones.
The SQlab active-saddle technology lets the saddle follow the pedalling motion as comfort increases, the vertebral discs are mobilized and pressure on the seat bones is minimised. The correct width saddle is a prerequisite for maximum performance. Available widths: 13 cm/14 cm/15 cm/16 cm
NEW!!! Speedneedle 20Twenty
Now we proudly present the new Speedneedle 20TWENTY to celebrate and anticipate the next 20 years. The Speedneedle 20TWENTY is based on the Speedneedle Marathon, though at 130 mm, it’s a little wider. We also kept our proprietary carbon-aramid-mixed struts. What we updated was the saddle shell and the upholstering. Instead of two overlapping pieces of leather / alcantara, the saddle is now covered by two pieces laid parallel along the longest axis to guarantee comfort!
The saddle is available with an alcantara upholstery at 99 g, or in leather in black, white or red (114 g).

SQlab Innerbarends 411
Innerbarends are a new innovative evolution of the good old barends we know from the early days of mountainbikes, but with a never-before-seen safety aspect. Despite the different hand position, the brake levers always remain in reach. The position somewhat resembles that of an aerobar.
The Innerbarends fit most bikes. They are mounted directly adjacent and inwards of the grips. As most brake levers are long enough that for best brake performance one can and should mount them inboard of the shifter there is usually sufficient space between grips and shifter / brake lever for mounting the inner barends.
The Innerbarends don’t weigh much at 108g per pair, and aren’t in the way, so just give them a try!

TUNE goes Fatbike 28/10/2013
Tune: Based on long-time experiences with our King and Kong hub combination we have developed an offset hubset for Fatbikes.
With its 130 g the Fat King is ploughing a lonely Fatbike-furrow. The hub will be available in a 135mm QR and a 142x15mm thru-axle version.
With its 170mm (QR) and 177mm (12mm thru-axle) axle spacing, the Fat Kong is new territory for us but with only 240g very tune typical and ready for all relevant current axle and drivetrain systems.
Thanks to identical flange distances both wheels can be built symmetrically. The result is highest stiffness and durability. The load oriented material distribution of the hub body has been laid out to stiffen the flanges. In addition, the flanges are tilted towards the spokes and hence in the load direction. The result is a solid, durable and minimal weight product, made in Buggingen/Germany.

Eurobike 2013: Tune introduce the brand new Tune Singledpeeder D
In the course of the switch from 15 mm to 17 mm rear axle hubs the Singlespeed-hub has been adapted for the common through axle systems: 135 mm Maxle and the 142x12 X-12 system. The new Singlespeed D hub with only 212 g is certainly one of the lightest singlespeed hubs available. The reworked version has been fitted with an alloy freewheel body which is considerably lighter than it's Ti predecessor. The use of titanium is no longer needed as Tune has been successfully using a special new heat treated alloy which is almost as strong as titanium. The X-12 version is suitable for bikes with for example a Pinion-drive. The hub will be available in Australia from November.

Wow. There has always been the Vector with its low 10mm rise. In future the previous Vector bar will go by the name Vector Hi10.

There are now rises Hi20, Hi10, Hi5 (Flat on top), and drops Low5 (flat on bottom) and Low10. Below an overview.
