Triathletes are capable of suffering but still experience sitting troubles excessively. The extreme sitting position in combination with long riding units presents an ergonomic challenge.

The 613 ERGOWAVE® R is designed with a raised rear section, allowing the pressure to shift towards the pubic bones for the first time in triathlon. The perineal area receives relief and the additional rearward support improves power transmission. As a positive side effect skin irritations are reduced.


The 613 ERGOWAVE® R offers:

+ Relief of the sensitive areas

+ More efficient power transmission

+ prevention of exhausting protective postures 

+ More legroom


The reason why this adaption of the SQlab step saddle has been released five years after the SQlab ERGOWAVE® shape, is in the details. Creating a harmony between position and height of the step and combining it with the waist, dip and width as well as the drop at the tip of the nose involved significant development efforts.

The 613 R doesn't just have any kind of shape but the perfect one for the most complex sitting position in cycling. A total of 18 years of SQlab experience make up this innovation: from all kinds of sitbone widths and different anatomies to solving customer concerns, we develop saddles not only to enhance comfort and relief but to boost performance in competitions as well.
