The SQ-Pad 12 is only a maximum of 4 mm thick and initially feels exceptionally firm and high-quality. Comparable to sporty saddles, which are just as slim and tightly padded. Especially on longer distances the SQ-Pad 12 keeps its shape. It does not, as with many high, soft pads, become uncomfortably pushed inwards during the pedalling movement.
The SQ-Short ONE12 is made for competition and has a tight fit. Therefore, if in doubt, reach for the next larger size.
