Product Description

The Ergon design team has analyzed the requirements of E-Mountain bikers in detail. Longer periods of sitting, steeper uphills and greater levels of impact characterise the E-MTB experience. After intense development, the optimal saddle shape was found. The rear ramp better supports the rider in steep uphill riding situations when seated. The V-shape offers freedom of movement across the wide flanks up to the padded nose – important for particularly steep climbs.

Supporting Ramp: Strongly raised ramping for maximum support from behind – helps to stabilize your position on the bike and saves energy when riding uphill.

Soft Comfort Padding: Maximum comfort when seated due to thicker padding – even on long rides.

Pronounced Relief Channel/Cut-Out: The Relief channel helps to avoid numbness and provides increased protection for soft-tissue areas. Specially adapted for men and women.

Pressure Relief Inlays: More comfort thanks to the OrthoCell®-Inlays in the seating area, which helps distribute pressure better.

Wide Front: In particularly steep trail sections, the position often is shifted towards the front. That’s why the E-Mountain’s saddle nose is deliberately designed wide and comfortable.

Integrated Mount: Convenient removable mount for accessories like Topeak® saddlebags.

  • Shell: Nylon Composite

Ergon MTB Saddle Review
by Anonymous user on 03/08/2020

Tried several MTB saddles but I was still experiencing discomfort after about 5 miles. used the Ergon saddle calculator tool and ordered a SM-E Mountain Sport Saddle at a very competitive price from Tredz which arrived promptly. It totally solved my discomfort. Excellent company to deal with. Thank you.

Ergon or wtb ?
by Anonymous user on 29/07/2020

Swapped out my trusty wtb saddle to this ergon emtb saddle, first thing I noticed was the high tail and found on big climbs I was forever moving around on the wtb but on the ergon I’m planted leaving me just to worry about my legs giving up on me. For Comfort I always ride with a padded short but did notice the difference was better I wouldn’t like to comment how it is without a under short..this saddle is a good upgrade for any emtb or MTB rider in my opinion.

Super seat
by Anonymous user on 29/07/2020

Wish I had got one of these seats sooner. Really comfortable. You can sit in different positions to sit the ride and pressure on your butt. Flexible to absorb bumps.

Not just for e-bikes!
by Anonymous user on 21/07/2020

very good saddle and don't buy into the e-bike hype, this is a great saddle for all bikes, i really like pushing back on the rear of the seat when putting the power down on a climb, makes it far more comfy on desperate, long and hard climbs!

Feels great
by Anonymous user on 28/05/2020

Totally solved the discomfort of riding my emtb. Also has smoothed out the ride in general, like having the feeling of better more supple suspension

Saddle Guide

 

Saddle Guide

Back in the saddle again

A suitable and comfortable saddle is incredibly important while cycling. You only have three contact points with the bike while cycling - your feet/pedals, hands/handlebars and your saddle. Because of this, it's vital your bike saddle is comfortable to make life easier and prevent chafing, numbness and all manner of unpleasant nether-region complaints.


Choosing the right saddle

Sitting comfortably?

It can be a bit of a task finding the right saddle for you. Just because a saddle has lots of padding doesn't necessarily mean it will be the most comfortable. It all depends on the shape of your behind, your style of riding and your level of tolerance.

Luckily, saddles are an inexpensive upgrade so try a few out to find the perfect perch for your posterior. Ultimately, you need support - the weight needs to be on your sit bones (the bony parts of your bottom) and not on sensitive tissue areas.

For casual riding, a wide, heavily padded seat gives you plenty of cushioning and support. For racing, you don't need as much support, so a narrow saddle is better and won't obstruct your leg movement as much as a wider saddle. Men's saddles tend to be long and thin. Some have padding from foam or gel inserts. Women's saddles are shorter in length and wider at the back.


How to measure your sit bones

Finding your correct sit bone width is easy, and you can do it at home. 

All you need is a flat bench or seat, something to rest your feet on, a piece of cardboard, some chalk and a tape measure. Check out our video to see what you need to do.


Construction

What's in a saddle?

Let's take a look at the geometry of a saddle and some of the features you'll find.

A saddle with steel rails

Rails

Rails (sometimes called the cradle) are found on all saddles and attach it to the seatpost. They are made from steel or lighter materials such as carbon fibre, magnesium or titanium.Some saddles have hollow rails to make them lighter still.

Covering

Saddles are commonly made from high-wicking, durable man-made fabrics such as Lycra, vinyl or synthetic leather. Leather saddles are timeless and stylish, medium weight and extremely durable, although they are more expensive, need covering to protect them from water damage and have to be 'broken in'.

A saddle with gel padding

Comfort Features

Made from metal frames with springs, padded or 'mattress' saddles imitate a mattress. Gel saddles are made from similar material used in cosmetic surgery implants which moves with you to protect sensitive tissue and cushion your body.


Performance Saddles

For speed or endurance

These saddles are narrow and lightweight (sometimes with titanium or carbon rails), with minimal padding and a stiff top.

Mountain bike-specific performance saddles have a shaped rear, downward sloped nose and can be reinforced on areas that impact when you crash. Aggressive off-road riding saddles are longer for more fore/aft body position adjustments.

Comfort Saddles

Cushioned perch

These saddles are useful with comfort bikes or hybrids where the handlebars are higher or as high as the seat, requiring more weight to be put on the saddle. Comfort saddles are well padded and wide, especially at the back.

Women's Saddles

For the female form

Women tend to have wider pelvic bones than men, therefore female-friendly saddles are shorter in length, wider at the back and have pronounced cutaways at the sides.

As with men's saddles, you can still choose different widths with many brands, to suit your own body shape.

Specialized have a range of saddles specifically designed for women

Saddle Accessories

Extra comfort and care

There are a variety of products available to keep your saddle dry, in good working order and also to help you ride more comfortably on it. A pair of padded shorts or tights gives you amazing extra comfort which is essential for long rides.

Leather saddles need a bit of moisturising - treat them to some treatment wax. Keep your saddle dry with a rain cover. Easy to transport, quick to dry and inexpensive.
