SQlab - a name from ancient greek mythology

What is the origin of our name "SQlab"?

Asclepius (german: Äskulap) in ancient Greek mythology is the healing god of medical arts. With his magical healing power he is believed to be a master of the art of healing like no other. A typical representation of Exclepius is a bearded man leaning on a snake-entwined staff.

The snake (colubrid) eventually became the symbol of medicine and to this day can be seen used in this context in many medical and pharmaceutical facilities. Here at SQlab, with our medical specialists, we place a strong emphasis when developing products on the need for ergonomics and health aspects in cycling. As a result, we have hence adapted our name to the god of medicine in modified form and symbolically use a snake-entwined saddle to complete the logo. This is how our so-called SQ-laboratory, in which research and development of the highest level, has taken place for years with great success.

SQlab has specialised in the three contact points of the bike (Hands - Pelvis - Feet). A bicycle saddle must not only fit perfectly to both the male and female anatomy, but also correctly spread the body weight from a medical point of view. The grips must prevent numb fingers, must be easily and securely assembled and be a good fit for the hand. In particular our saddles, and our fitting process, which determines the perfect saddle width, have made us the most successful saddle manufacturer in tests of bicycle magazines.
