With the it’s narrow seated surface and padded edges, you get perfect feedback from the trail. Ride with feeling - the SM Enduro Comp Men takes your trail skills to a whole new level.
The design of the SM Enduro Comp Men provides both ergonomically specific support and pressure relief for the male anatomy. Additionally, the design features a special anti-friction material at the rear of the saddle. This material reduces friction and allows the rider to easily change positions in a dynamic riding position.
The saddle’s primary function is to guide the bike through demanding terrain. For maximum comfort, the entire outer perimeter of the saddle is padded.
The CNC-milled, closed-cell AirCell foam guarantees enhanced support and optimal pressure distribution. The flexible side wings of the SM Comp Titanium Men reduces pressure on the inner thighs and allows for optimal power transmission into the pedals.
The flat V-shape design and sloping rear of the SM Enduro Comp Men allows for maximum freedom of movement. You can change your seating position quickly and easily at any time through demanding terrain.
The Ergon development team dove into intensive research on the topic of men’s health. In cycling, the main complaints come from the saddle. For men, an improperly fit saddle can cause too much pressure on the highly sensitive perineal are which can lead to both temporary to long lasting health issues and discomforts. Through extensive development and analysis of MRI and CT scans, numerous prototypes and test rides, the SM Enduro Comp Men was created to alleviate perineal pressures while supporting the rider’s performance needs.
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.
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.
The shape of the SM-Enduro series accommodates for frequent and dynamic changes of seat position and seat height. The result is a saddle that effectively relieves and reduces pressure in many different riding positions encountered while riding demanding terrain.
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.
