SM Downhill Compblack

  • Developed during the Downhill World Cup.
  • Full freedom of movement. Full control.
  • No compromise for modern DH racing.
Developed during the World Cup – made for your local downhill track. Together with world-class downhill riders, Ergon has created the perfect saddle for modern DH racing. The saddle requirements of the World’s top riders were specific: super compact with maximum tire clearance, anti-friction zones and all-round 360º padding for optimum leg protection and guidance. The Ergon SM Downhill Comp achieves all these goals and more! The saddle design naturally follows the sloping DH-typical saddle position and for the uphill we have comfortably padded the seat.

Minimalist And Compact Full control and freedom of movement

In tough terrain and during jumps, full freedom of movement over the saddle is essential. We have designed the SM Downhill Comp to be minimalist and compact (23.6 x 12 cm). This enhances rider control, speed and safety to a whole new level.

The Ergon SM Downhill Comp has a minimalist compact design

360° Padding Edge padding supports bike control

The 360º degree edge padding of the SM Downhill Comp supports the best possible leg guidance for controlling the bike and gives maximum protection. Unpleasant bruises on the inside of the legs are reduced by the padding.

Well Padded Comfort for seated pedaling

Although downhill riders rarely take a seat on the SM Downhill Comp, we have added the right amount of padding for the necessary comfort desired during short seat transfers.

Maximum Tire Clearance Ideal for small 29er frames

The rear of the SM Downhill Comp is designed short and flat to give the tire enough space when the rear suspension is fully compressed. Even on small 29er frames with a low saddle position, the recess in the saddle keeps the tire from contacting the saddle.

The Ergon SM Downhill Comp is particularly short and flat designed

Elegant And Unique Strong in the air

The surface design is adapted to the sloping orientation of a downhill saddle. „Always downhill“ is the motto here – to control in steep, technical terrain and in the air.

Perfect Fit One size fits all downhill adventures

One size fits all. The SM Downhill Comp is unlike any other Ergon saddle. The saddle is not made for prolonged sitting, but rather for the perfect control of the bike on the race track and in the air. Different widths and gender-specific cutouts are not necessary.

Stand Out in the Crowd Dazzling Looks and Oil Slick Rails

The SM Downhill Comp visually stands out in the crowd. From the prototype to early testing in the World Cup, we have adopted a stunning graphics for the production Team Edition model. Eye catching Oil Slick CroMo rails are a perfect match for the Oil Slick clamps found on our GD1 Evo and GFR1 grips. For those riders who prefer something more discreet, we also offer the SM Downhill Comp saddle in black with white branding.
