Mehr Traktion und Komfort bergauf

“With a more rigid and less damped saddle, traction of the rear wheel is noticeably compromised. The SM E-Mountain Core combines comfort and e-specific riding skills in a completely new way.”

— Lutz Scheffer, E-Bike Designer

Certified back-friendly

Dorsal and back pain is currently one of the most common human health issues. Naturally this also effects and compromises the enjoyment of riding your bike. The positive effect of the Core saddle series’ working principal, in regard to back issues, has officially been confirmed by a group of interdisciplinary experts (health professionals, orthopedists and physical therapists) in a long-term certification process. It works!

As the first bike saddles ever, the 2020 Ergon Core models have been awarded with the seal of quality called “Campaign for Healthier Backs “by the Association Forum Healthy Back – Better Living and Federal Association of German Back Schools.

SM E-Mountain Core: Tested and recommended by the Forum Gesunder Rücken – Besser Leben e.V. and the Bundesverband deutscher Rückenschulen (BdR) e.V. (Federal Association of German Back Schools).

Maximal Comfort for Men and Women

In addition to the construction of the saddle, the gender specific form of the seating area is also brand new. In the genital area, men and women differentiate strongly. It is most often in this area that pressure points lead to numbness and difficulties while riding.

Ergon has designed the relief surfaces using the latest scientific research and extensive testing. The results are gender specific shapes and relief channels – creating maximum comfort for women and men.

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.
