When we heard that Ergon was updating and improving on their already great women’s saddles with a new model, we were immediately interested. Every cyclists knows what it’s like to sit on an uncomfortable saddle and how long it can take to find the right one, but for us girls this can be even more of a challenge. Instead, of just slapping a bright colour on a men’s specific saddle like other manufactures, Ergon goes about developing their SM & SR Sport Gel Women saddles with women cyclists in mind. They even went as far as to develop one for MTB riders, the SM and one for Road riders, the SR.
Because women’s pelvises differ from men’s, many of the saddles on the market don’t really fit properly. Ergon however designed these two to fix this problem. The forward relief channel, the wide V shape and relief inlays help alleviate pressure a on the pelvic bone and genital area. This allows riders to sit in the saddle longer, without feeling discomfort.
