- Full freedom of movement
- Developed in the Enduro World Series
- Uphill comfort for men
Can’t seem to quench your thirst for adrenaline on the trails? You like to shred, but in maximum comfort and style? Then the SM Enduro Men is just the saddle for you. Developed with world-class professionals from the Enduro World Series, it lets you master every line at full speed. The narrow, short seat gives you all the freedom you need, the relief channel minimizes pressure where it counts. If you want to master the trails and value a lot of seating comfort, you are perfectly on the go with this saddle.
PRESSURE RELIEF – Anatomically adapted
The design of the SM Enduro 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.
360° EDGE PADDING – All-around comfort
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.
AIRCELL CLOSED CELL-FOAM – AirCell closed cell-foam
The CNC-milled, closed-cell AirCell foam guarantees enhanced support and optimal pressure distribution. The flexible side wings of the SM Enduro Men reduces pressure on the inner thighs and allows for optimal power transmission into the pedals.
FLAT REAR – Maximum freedom of movement
The flat V-shape design and sloping rear of the SM Enduro 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 Men was created to alleviate perineal pressures while supporting the rider’s performance needs.
More freedom of movement
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.
Male and Female pelvic differences
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.
Made for every racing position
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 right size
The shape and size of the saddle must match the distance between the rider’s sit bones.
Since the pelvic bones taper forward in a v-shape, the saddle must be able to provide a sufficiently large contact surface for the bony structures in different seating positions. The saddle widths are chosen so that the usable seat surface corresponds to the distance between the sit bones.
The more bent forward a rider sits, the further forward the sit bones touch the saddle.
