100% Downhill

The SMD2 is designed to guide the bike on the track and in the air. The entire surface design is adapted to the inclined orientation of the saddle, allowing the rider complete freedom of movement downhill.

Durable and slip-resistant

Thanks to the anti-slip surface, you have optimum support and control if seated. In addition, the SMD2 has a durable and easy-care microfiber cover that holds up throughout the most demanding conditions. The shape of the saddle corresponds to the typical downhill motion sequence – for a smooth descent.

360 degree padding

The outer edge padding of the SMD2 series ensures maximum protection and best leg guidance when riding. This feature also reduces discomfort to the inner thigh.

Freedom for the tires

The saddle has an extra-flat, short rear without edges. This provides maximum tire clearance when the rear suspension is compressed, allowing for the saddle to be mounted at maximum depth.

    “The SMD2 delivers what it promises, and does so in a special way. Anyone who thinks saddle choice is unimportant downhill will change their mind with this product.”

  • Fabien Barel
    “My first impression of the SMD2 prototype concerned the dimension. Exactly the right length, especially at the saddle nose for better control plus the grip and the stability of the rear surface. I could move freely, but had lateral contact with the inner leg when necessary. These were definitely the key facts for me.”
