The new Ergon SM Men saddles are specifi cally tailored to the features of the male anatomy and optimized for the requirements of mountain biking. With the assistance of the latest scientific studies and intensive prototyping Ergon‘s interdisciplinary development team – consisting of sports scientists, industrial designers, engineers and test riders – have come up with a new generation of pressure-relief men’s saddles. The SM Men saddles effectively avoid discomfort and numbness for most applications in mountain biking – for most types of mountain bike riders.
Large-Area Pressure Distribution: Perfect pressure distribution in the area of the sit and pubic bones by means of a flat, even contact area and high end padding foams.
Flat Rear: The narrow, slightly inclining rear with a flat contour and a minimal ramp-up give great freedom of movement on the downhills.
Flat contour: Due to the more upright pelvic orientation the saddle surface is flat with great freedom of movement.
Effective Relief: The extremley deep and rearward increasing relief channel is complimented by a proper cut-out in the deepest spot. This construction combines all the benefi ts of a standard cut-out saddle without its drawbacks (often a very stiff shell) producing a particularly high degree of pressure relief of the sensitive perineal area. Exceedingly high pressures often are the cause for discomfort and numbness in the genital area.
Shape: Through its Y-Shape the freedom of movement and legroom are maximized, while at the same time all bone structures are ideally supported.
Integrated Mount: Convenient removable mount for accessories like Topeak® saddle bags.
