Ingenious Working Principle

Floating ergonomic saddle core

When pedaling, your weight is continuously shifted from one sit bone to the other – with the highest stress on the pedal-up side, where your body weight is focused and high pressure occurs. This localized pressure is noticeably reduced by the Ergon Core: Through the suspended Core design and the high-end material properties the bike saddle has the ability to adapt to every pelvic motion when pedaling – enormously enhancing comfort.

Material-Innovative Infinergy®

Cycling on clouds

BASF’s innovative Infinergy® material sets new standards for suspension and damping on bicycles. The elastic saddle core supports pelvic movements when pedaling, absorbs road shocks and alleviates unwanted pressures on the back. When the pedaling pressure decreases, the Ergon Core, consisting of thousands of foam particles, immediately rebounds back to its original shape. Leading manufacturers of running shoes also use this E-TPU foam worldwide with great success.

The Advantages of the double Shell

Ergon TwinShell vs. standard saddle

The revolutionary Ergon double-shell technology takes comfort to a whole new level. With the conventional saddle there is only one seat shell on the frame. This standard shell supports all of the rider’s weight and must therefore be very stiff. The Ergon SC Core Prime utilizes two shells. The lower shell, supporting the rider’s weight is very stiff and the upper shell, which is a base of the padding material is very flexible. In between is the floating ergonomic core made of Infinergy®. This design isolates road shock, dampens vibrations, supports pelvic movements while pedaling and noticeably takes pressure off the sit bones.

Unlike the standard saddle, which has only one shell, the SC Core consists of two shells, between which the ergonomic core absorbs impacts.

The Twin Shell and Inner Core Damper

Support that follows your pedal stroke

The view from below on the SC Core Prime shows how the high-performance elastomer damper decouples the two saddle shells from each other. This sandwich construction with its elastic core allows the saddle to follow the natural movements of the pedal stroke. This provides support in all directions from the vibrations of the riding surface to the rider’s pedal stroke.

Orthopedic Foam

Comfortable and durable

The padding of the SC Core is made of orthopedic comfort foam, which we have designed for fitness bikes, e-bikes and touring bikes. The foam is supportive, soft, but does not collapse. In addition to the foam, specific gel pad inlays offer even more comfort under the sitting area. With this saddle, it is not absolutely necessary to wear cycling shorts. The saddle is covered with robust microfiber to prevent abrasions and maintain the durability of the saddle.

Ergonomie

Minimizing Saddle Discomfort

When cycling, most of your body weight rests on the small saddle surface. If the weight is not shifted evenly to the bony structures, unnecessary pressures are then distributed to sensitive soft tissue areas. A relief channel helps, but is not the only important factor.

For an ergonomic distribution of pressure, the correlations between the sit bone distance and sitting angle must be taken into account. An ergonomic bicycle saddle should have sufficient contact surface, but still allow the thighs to move freely. Furthermore, cycling is not static. Uphill, the rider intuitively slides towards the saddle nose to shift the body’s center of gravity forwards. The opposite occurs when cycling downhill.

Ergon takes all these factors into account when developing all of their saddles. There are specific models for specific disciplines, and both recreational and professional riders. Two widths are available in every saddle model to better adapt to all rider’s comfort needs.

The pressure that is created when pedalling is released downwards thanks to the two shells, thus relieving the sitting area.

Specific Saddles For Men And Women

When it comes to saddle contact points and relief areas, men and women are anatomically very different. Any incorrect pressure distribution in this area often leads to feelings of numbness and discomfort. Men experience this more towards the back of the saddle and women, more towards the front of the saddle. Through extensive research and development, two distinctly different designs were born. The two distinctly different designs share the common goal of maximum comfort.

Female saddle with pronounced relief channel to the front, adapted to the female anatomy – Male saddle with relief channel, specially designed for the male anatomy to the rear.

Tested Back-Friendly

Back pain is the most commonly occurring orthopedic condition, especially when cycling. When you have back pain on the bike, your ride enjoying quickly dissipates. In extensive tests led by medical professionals, the Core saddle principle has been officially confirmed to reduce back pain.

Officially confirmed: The Ergon SC Core has a back-protecting effect.

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 pelvis is V-shaped and the saddle must offer the sit bones a large contact surface while being able to meet the demands of different sitting positions. The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle. Two saddle sizes are offered to match the rider’s unique sit bone width.

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.
