SQlab’s Interbike booth was all about comfort. Comfort at the bars with their new 311 FL-X bars, and comfort at the saddle with the 602 Infinergy seat that’s making its way to production.
Compared to the 3OX bar, the 311 FL-X has 30% more flex. That should translate to a more comfortable ride at the bars, especially for lighter riders who don’t need a stout bar.
The 311 FL-X will be available in two models, both with a 16 degree bend. One will have a 15 degree rise, the other 30 degrees. Both should come in under 200g and will retail for $250.
Infinergy foam seems to be finding its way into a few new saddles lately – it’s not just for shoes. The expanded foam takes the place of the rubber like polymer for their Ergolux Active saddle system and allows the whole saddle to move independently of the rails for a more comfortable ride.
As usual, the saddles use their stepped design which is said to reduce pressure on the important bits, and will be offered in different widths for $109.99.
