The SMC4 offers the most comfort and relief for touring riders and mountain bikers. Numbness is diminished or prevented through the soft and deep padding. The 9mm relief channel offers maximum pressure relief for the perineal area. The large sitting area of the saddle effectively reduces pressure points, distributing the pressure equally across the sit bones. Unlike step-saddles, the flat seating surface of the SMC4 enables dynamic sitting positions.
- Shell: nylon composite
- Cover: microfiber
- Rail: chromoly
- Padding: orthopedic comfort foam
The 9mm deep relief channel helps to provide increased protection of the soft-tissue areas.
Cyclists in a sporty position naturally have their pelvis rocked forward on the saddle. The result is more pressure to the pubic bone. Ergon saddles take this into account and the result is large area pressure distribution without pressure points.
The shape and size of the saddle must match the sit bone width of the rider to maximize comfort and enjoyment.
The pelvic bone has a unique V-shape and the saddle must offer the sit bones a large contact surface with the ability to meet the demand of different sitting positions. Various saddle widths are offered so that the usable seat surface corresponds to the rider's unique sit bone distance.
The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle.
