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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
