SQlab ergonomic bike saddles at The Path Bike ShopOur bike fit staff is excited about these new ergonomic bike saddles from SQlab being in stock here at The Path.

The SQLlab saddles feature an extended nose which is approximately 25 mm longer than most traditional saddles. This longer saddle nose allows the rider to utilize the saddle better for increased control while steering the bike in technical situations and offers a better platform for climbing steep sections of trail. The saddle nose is also lowered, in order to help distribute bodyweight better.

The spine-friendly "active" movement of the 611 saddles provide increased lateral and rearward flexibility which supports more active riders with a better connection to the bike and decreased pressure on the spine and joints. 

We have SQlab 611 active and 611 race models in both 140mm and 150mm widths, prices range from $119-$169.

SRAM Guide Brakes

SRAM Guide RS and Guide RSC hydraulic disc brakes at The Path Bike Shop in Tustin, CAThe SRAM Guide family of brakes is a new design from the ground up, to create a combination of braking reliability and control. With their new SwingLink™ technology  SRAM was able to tune how fast the pistons in the brake lever advance during certain times of the brake lever stroke. This results in less deadband (i.e., the time between when the brake lever is pulled and the brake engages) while maintaining a smooth modulation.

The new lever assembly has a piggyback reservoir to create better performance as well as better management over the brake fluid. The lever was also shortened for a more ergonomic shape for one-finger braking. They feature a lever reach adjust as well as pad-contact adjust.

The SRAM Guide RS (pictured, upper) MSRP is $149 per brake, without rotors.

The SRAM Guide RSC (pictured, lower) MSRP is $199 per brake, without rotors.
