The SM E-Mountain Pro Women significantly improves the rider’s seated position while climbing. The upturned rear ramp gives you a stable, effort-saving hold when climbing uphill.
The saddle’s nose features a wider and flatter design for added comfort and support as the body position moves forward and lower during very steep challenging climbs.
Through intensive research and evaluation of test rider’s feedback, a highly calculated tapered relief channel was developed to alleviate and support the common sensitive areas of the female rider. The main design changes are noted by a wider, padded nose and a further forward position of the tapered relief channel. This is due to women’s pelvic anatomy, biomechanics and sensitive soft tissue; all of the pressure needs to be relieved towards the front.
The new OrthoCell® material helps you to achieve your best performance without any complaints. These inlays, which are more durable and lighter than gel, ensure the best pressure distribution and provide the highest rebound force. This means they follow the movements of the pelvis with every turn of the crank, but return to their starting position very quickly.
The padding consists of a lightweight AirCell® padding, which we have designed to be comfortable yet high performance. The pressure of the body weight on the seat area is distributed much more effectively with OrthoCell® inlays and AirCell® padding, highly increasing the supportive qualities of the saddle.
For added comfort, the SM E-Mountain Pro Women features special side flanks. The anti-friction material allows for ease of leg clearance as well as smooth position changing for dynamic riding ease.
The Ergon developers have taken a completely new approach to the topic of women’s mountain bike saddles. After intensive research with X-ray and CT analysis, they have created a new generation of saddles. Countless prototypes have been tested by both professionals and recreational riders. This feedback, in combination with scientific data developed a new generation of comfort for women.
Women are significantly more mobile in the pelvis than men. In an athletically inclined sitting position, the pelvis therefore often tilts forward more. This often results in considerable pressure in the genital area. The SM E-Mountain Pro Women saddle redirects this pressure to the bony structures of the seated area by ways of the far forward positioned and tapered relief channel.
two halves of the pelvis – is about a quarter lower in women than in men. In addition, the angle of the pubic bones to each other is greater. We have also taken this into account in the SM E-Mountain Pro Women in order to prevent discomfort in the sensitive areas.
Due to the characteristics of women’s pelvis, women have suffered discomfort for years on standard saddles. The SM E-Mountain Pro Women alleviates sensitive soft tissue pressure with the tapered relief channel preventing numbness and pain. Alleviating this pressure better distributes the rider’s body weight more towards the sit bones while allowing a more comfortable pressure-free forward rocked position.
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 riders unique sit bone distance.
The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle.
