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.

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-shape 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 rider's unique sit bone distance.
The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle.
The 9mm deep relief channel helps to provide increased protection of the soft-tissue areas.
Cyclists 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.
Optimal pressure distribution for effective relief and protection of soft tissue area.
Extra comfort delivered by large surface gel pads that follow the sitbones during pedaling.
