SM E-Mountain Sport Men

The E-MTB saddle for men

E-mountain bikers have the ability to stay seated throughout steeper and rougher terrain, therefore their saddle demands are slightly different. For this reason Ergon has developed a special men’s saddle for E-MTBs.

Details

Energy-saving ramp

Ideally supported in steeper terrain

The SM E-Mountain Men significantly improves your seated position while climbing. The steeply rising ramp at the rear gives you a stable, effort-saving hold when climbing uphill. We have also designed the saddle nose to be particularly wide and comfortable, as the seat position often shifts forward in extremely steep sections.

Deep relief channel

Eliminating unwanted pressures

The progressive relief channel, which deepens towards the rear, leads to an opening through the saddle shell. This construction combines all of the advantages of a cut-out saddle without the potential disadvantages. This design gives the saddle shell more forgiveness as well as specifically relieves perineal pressures. Too much pressure in this area often leads to discomfort and numbness in the genital area.

OrthoCell®-Pads

Even better than gel

The new OrthoCell® material helps you to achieve your best performance without any complaints. These inlays, which are more durable and lighter than gel, ensure the best pressure distribution and provide the highest rebound force. This means they follow the movements of the pelvis with every turn of the crank, but return to their starting position very quickly.

Orthopedic Foam

Comfortable and durable

The orthopedic foam is especially ergonomic for mountain biking, but still extremely durable. With the addition of OrthoCell® inlays, the pressure of the bony structures is distributed much better by increasing the rebound force and dissipating vibrations.

Anti-Friction Side Flanks

Less friction more movement

For an additional benefit of comfort, we have added anti-friction side flanks to the SM-E Mountain saddle. This feature reduces the friction of your thighs on the saddle while pedaling resulting in less friction and more freedom of movement.

Integrated QuickClick Mount

Removable Topeak QuickClick saddle bag mount

A Topeak QuickClick mount is integrated in all models of the SM-E Mountain series. This removable QuickClick mount allows for Topeak saddlebags to be easily attached in a streamline fashion.

Men’s Health

The Ergon development team carried out intensive research on the topic of men’s health. They found that the main cause of complaints when cycling is the saddle. Often times, men experience too much pressure on their perineal area leading to pain, discomfort, numbness and potentially more severe health problems. The SM E-Mountain saddle relieves this pressure with a very specific relief channel as well as better surface area distribution under the bony structures. Through MRT, CT analysis, many prototypes and test riders, we have ergonomically adjusted the saddle to the specific anatomy and needs of men.

More freedom of movement

Compared to women, the male pelvis tends to be less flexible. This means that men sit more upright on the saddle and put more of their weight distribution on their sit bones. Therefore the transition area between the rear of the saddle and the saddle nose can be kept narrow (Y-shape). This gives the legs more space to pedal.

Male and Female pelvic differences

In contrast to the female anatomy, the male sit bones are more narrow and where the two sides of the pelvis come together in the front is much higher. This results in more pressure being distributed on the male’s sit bones vs. a broader area of sit bones and pubic bones in women. We have taken this significant difference between male and female anatomy into consideration during saddle development.

No pressure on sensitive areas

The correct distribution of pressure is important. In order to protect the sensitive perineal area, the pressure must be shifted to the sit bones and parts of the pubic arch – this is exactly how the relief surface of Ergon men’s saddles works. Due to the more upright sitting male pelvis we have kept the surface flat and even for best possible freedom of movement. For the support we use the highest quality foams.

The Right Size

The shape and size of the saddle must match the sit bone width of the rider to maximize comfort and enjoyment.

The pelvic bone has a unique V-shaped and the saddle must offer the sit bones a large contact surface with the ability to meet the demand of different sitting positions. Various saddle widths are offered so that the usable seat surface corresponds to the riders unique sit bone distance.

The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle.

The saddle is available in the sizes “Small/Medium” for the seat bone with of 9 12 cm (3.5″–4.7″) and “Medium/Large” for the seat bone with of 12–16 cm (4.7″–6.3″).
