Product Description

The Ergon SMC4 Sport Gel Saddle now offers even more comfort and improved pressure distribution for the soft tissue areas compared to Ergon’s SMC3's softer structure and additional volume in the seat cushion. Sit comfortably with optimal pressure relief in the perineum area by the addition of 9mm deep relief channel.

An extra-large bike saddle effectively reduces pressure peaks and optimally distributes the pressure on the sit bones and pubic bones. The Ergon SMC4 features a flat seat for dynamic sitting in different positions without tilting effects – unlike step saddles. SMC4 Comp Gel and SMC4 Sport Gel come with gel pads for maximum comfort.

Key Features:

  • Shell: Nylon GFRP
  • Rails: CroMo
  • Cover: DuraSkin
  • Padding: Orthopaedic Comfort Foam with Gel Pads
  • Weight: 315g (S), 320g (M)

Core Comfort - The ergonomic focus is on maximizing rider comfort and relief of the soft tissue areas of mountain bikers.

The SMC4 Sport Gel maximizes comfort with the addition of gel pads. Thanks to these broad gel pads, even more rider comfort and pressure relief is possible. The 9mm relief channel offers maximum pressure relief for the perineal area. The large sitting area of the saddle effectively reduces pressure points, distributing the pressure equally across the sit bones. Unlike step-saddles, the flat seating surface of the SMC4 enables dynamic sitting positions.

SMC4 Pressure Measurement

Optimal pressure distribution for effective relief and protection of the soft-tissue area.

Anatomic Gel Technology

Extra comfort is delivered by large surface gel pads that move with the sit bones during pedalling.

Pronounced Relief Channel

The 9mm deep relief channel helps to offer increased protection of the soft-tissue areas.

Large-Area Pressure Distribution

Cyclist in a sporty position naturally have their pelvis rocked forward on the saddle. The result is more pressure to the pubic bone. Ergon saddles take this into account and the result is large area pressure distribution without pressure points.

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.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Bit Hard.

After reading reviews imagined it being a bit softer. Cant fully judge yet as only tested a few times. Not immediately comfortable but hoping it will improve in time. I have the medium based on sit bone width but maybe should have gone for the large. Time will tell.

Saddles Guide

What are saddles?

The saddle is your bicycle seat.

Who needs a saddle?

Saddles do become worn over time and need replacing, but many people choose to upgrader the standard saddle on their new bike to something more suitable for their needs.

What are the choices?

You can choose saddles in different widths, for male or female riders. There’s not really a clear division between road and mountain bike saddles, so you need to choose a shape and type suited for your physiology as much as your riding style.

What should I buy with them?

Saddles are only one half of the backside comfort equation – reward your rear with a padded set of cycling shorts for full comfort.

Anything else?

There’s no single shape of saddle that’s comfortable for everyone – some people prefer deep padding and lots of cleverly designed pressure relief cut outs. Others favour a flat, no nonsense design.
