Cycle Dynamics has recently taken delivery of a new saddle, the SQlab 600 Active, designed for riders who are intolerant of any pressure whatsoever to the perineal area (eg. severe pudendal neuropathy, erectile dysfunction, prostatitis etc….). Its two separate pads for support under the “sit bones” is similar to other forms of saddles used for this purpose, however, what makes the saddle unique is the presence of a nose which helps contribute to the control of the bicycle via contact with the inner thighs.
Note that this saddle necessitates a very upright position (ie. not suitable for drop bar road and mountain bikes) and rider weight is limited to 120kg. For larger riders the 24cm SQlab 621 Active is recommended instead.
This saddle retails for $189 incl. GST, and as with other SQlab saddles, Cycle Dynamics will give a 20% discount applies when supplied as part of a bike fit.
**** IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ***
Given the serious nature of some of the conditions for which this saddle is designed for, an appointment to get an adequate history, conduct an appropriate examination and/or organise a referral to an appropriate specialist may be required prior to any sale. Where an appropriate medical or health professional is already involved and has provided a recommendation for such a saddle (preferably in writing) this may not be required. As with any saddle, the comfort and effectiveness is highly dependent on it and the handlebars being set in an appropriate position relative to individual needs and capabilities. As such it is recommended that it be provided in the context of a bike fit.
If you are uncertain please feel free to contact Ben at Cycle Dynamics to discuss your specific needs (please phone 0402 438 342 or use the contact form here).
