SM Downhill

  • 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 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 to be minimalist and compact (23.6 x 12 cm). This enhances rider control, speed and safety to a whole new level.

360° Padding Edge padding supports bike control

The 360º degree edge padding of the SM Downhill 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, 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 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 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 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.
