Ergonomie

Completely new

The Ergon developers have taken a completely new approach to the topic of women’s mountain bike saddles. After intensive research with X-ray and CT analysis, they have created a new generation of saddles. Countless prototypes have been tested by both professionals and recreational riders. This feedback, in combination with scientific data developed a new generation of comfort for women.

Pelvic flexibility

Women tend to rock forward more on the saddle compared to men due to an increased flexibility in the pelvis and hips. This often causes considerable pressure in the genital area. The SM Women Sport Gel is designed in a way to support a woman’s wider and more rocked forward pelvis while alleviating sensitive soft tissue with a tapered cut out.

Lower pubic symphysis

Anatomically, the pubic symphysis (anterior cartilage connection between the two halves of the pelvis) is about a quarter lower in women than in men. In addition, the angle of the pubic bones to each other is larger. These distinguished differences are taken into account with the development of the SM Women Sport Gel in order to prevent discomfort in the sensitive areas.

Specific Relief

Due to the characteristics of women’s pelvis, women have suffered discomfort for years on standard saddles. The SM Women Sport Gel alleviates sensitive soft tissue pressure with the tapered relief channel preventing numbness and pain. Alleviating this pressure better distributes the rider’s body weight more towards the sit bones while alleviated unwanted pressures in a forward rocked position.

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 female pelvic anatomy is a unique V-shape. The proper saddle design must support the bony structures in 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 distance of 9-12 cm and Medium / Large for the seat bone distance of 12-16 cm

Anatomical Gel-Pads

Consistent pressure distribution

When cycling, most of your body weight rests on the small saddle surface. To prevent discomfort in the extremely sensitive perineal and genital areas, the pressure is distributed as evenly as possible over the sit bones using anatomical gel pad inlays.

Orthopedic foam

Comfortable and durable

The padding of the SMC Women is made of thick orthopedic comfort foam. To match the demands of mountain biking, the foam is shaped in a way to be ergonomic with attention to materials that are particularly robust. This provides optimal riding support and pressure relief with the added benefit of durability.

Customized Relief

Pressure relief

Based on intensive research and feedback from our test riders, the saddle features a specific tapered cut out that supports and alleviates unnecessary pressures on sensitive female anatomy. This channel is precisely where women need relief.

Flat Rear

Best mobility downhill

The saddle’s rear is a flatter design to support a more upright sitting position while mountain biking. In addition, the angle of the front of the saddle provides freedom of movement while pedaling. The SMC provides the support and relief you need through dynamic and demanding terrain.
