It’s clear, if there are no discomforts while pedaling, the ride is much more enjoyable. You’ll become fitter and reach your goals faster. Whether it’s a longer ride on the weekend, the commute to work or a brisk ride around town – it’s much easier without saddle discomfort. That’s exactly why we developed the Ergon SF Women.
The SF Women is perfect for a sporty and comfortable position on today’s fitness bikes. The shape of the high-quality padded saddle supports the slightly inclined position of your upper body. This means that the pressure is optimally directed to the sit bones and sensitive soft tissues are relieved. In addition, with the SF Women’s aesthetic design, you visually enhance your bike with the eye-catching saddle design.
After intensive research and evaluation from our female test riders, we calculated the relief opening of the SF Women and placed it far forward. This relief channel is specifically tailored to the female anatomy and removes pressure off the sensitive genital area.
The padding is made of orthopedic foam, which we have tuned to be ergonomic and extremely durable. Orthopedic foam distributes the pressure much better – so that you feel comfortable at all times, even without traditional padded cycling shorts. The saddle is covered with robust microfiber.
Ergon’s development team has taken a completely new approach to the subject of women’s fitness saddles. After intensive basic research with X-ray and CT analyses, they have created a new generation of saddles. Countless prototypes were intensively tested by professionals and recreational riders, their feedback shines through in the final product.
Women have a much more flexible pelvis than men. In the typical sitting position on a fitness bike, the pelvis often tilts more forward. This often results in considerable pressure in the genital area. With the SF Women, this pressure is distributed to the bony structures of the saddle area by the relief channel and v-shaped saddle flanks.
For anatomical reasons, the pubic symphysis (anterior cartilage connection of the two halves of the pelvis) is deeper in women than in men. In addition, the angle between the pubic bones is greater. We have also taken this into account in the SF Women Sport Gel to prevent discomfort in the sensitive areas.
The shape and size of a saddle must fit the rider’s sit-bone width to avoid discomfort. That’s why Ergon offers the SF Women in two sizes. Since the pelvic bones taper forward in a v-shape, the saddle should always provide sufficient support surface for the sit bones in different sitting positions. The saddle widths are selected so that the usable area corresponds in each case to the sit bone distance and distributes the pressure optimally. The more forward a rider sits, the further forward the sit bones touch the saddle.
