If Home Office still has you craving more Fabio Wibmer content, here’s another clip to check out. Only this time, it’s more of an ad to announce his new signature lines including a limited edition brakeset. Don’t worry though, there’s more incredible riding than advertising, and the products from Magura and SQLab are worth a look as well.
Clearly, Fabio puts a lot of trust into his brakes, and the Magura four piston design offers loads of power for trials maneuvers. But in our experience, they also offer quite a bit of modulation making them excellent brakes for trail use as well.
For his signature version, Magura and Fabio have gone with the powerful but more affordable MT5 version with an HC 1-finger lever on the Carbotecture lever body. The caliper gets special gold accents…
…plus some gold script with Fabio’s signature. That gold matches his other signature parts from SQLab, like the 7OX lock on grips.
The signature brakes are limited to 2,000 sets worldwide, and will sell for $349 for the set without rotors. Not available yet, you can pre-order the brakes through Magura’s website here.
Moving over to SQLab, technically Fabio has two signature lines here – trail and trial. On the Trials side, Fabio runs their 3OX Trial bar with a huge 84mm rise, 9° backsweep and 5° upsweep for high cockpit set up perfect for tricky maneuvers. That’s paired with the 8OX Trial stem which is 90mm long with a 35° rise and has a 31.8mm clamp to match the aluminum bars.
For MTB, Fabio runs a much lower handlebar setup with a 3OX bar with a 25mm rise, 7° backsweep, and 4° upsweep. It measures 800mm wide, with a 31.8mm clamp, and is made from carbon fiber to get the weight down to 235g. SQLab notes that this bar is designed with extremely hard impacts in mind with less flex, so it’s not exactly meant for leisurely trail rides. To hold this one in place, Fabio has his own 8OX 35mm long stem. It has a +6° rise, and a 31.8mm clamp, and weighs in at 138g.
Of course no signature line from SQLab would be complete without saddles, so again there are two options. For MTB there is the 611 Ergowave which is offered in 12-15cm sizes and fits normal seatposts.
On the Trials side, the 6OX Trial saddle uses the Tripod mounting system which offers a super durable, rail-less saddle that also sits nice and low. The saddle has extra padding and rounded edges to make those repeated bails a little less painful.
All of the SQLab parts have gold accents to match the Magura brakes, which also match the Ohlins suspension and SRAM drivetrain parts on Fabio’s “enduro” bike. What else would you expect?

There’s an option for translated closed captions as well, but the translation leaves a lot to be desired, but it does provide some rather amusing lines.
