Find your recommended Ergon saddle.

SR Comp Men

Pressure relief in the seating area: SR Men. Flat contour, yet still comfortably padded. The overall shape and the relief channel with its deep cut-out perfectly match the male anatomy in a low, forward tilted riding position typical for road biking. The highly sensitive perineal area is effectively unloaded, preventing any discomfort. OrthoCell®-Inlays in the seating area generate the best possible pressure distribution – the innovative OrthoCell® material ensures maximum reset forces and is also more durable and lighter than gel.

The new Ergon road saddle for men. Due to their specific pelvic anatomy men are sitting more upright on the saddle. This creates a higher pressure in the highly sensitive perineal area, which often leads to any of the varying forms of discomfort. This is where the relief concept of the SR Men saddle comes into play.

Through the deepening relief channel with cut-out, the resulting pressure is evenly distributed onto the bone structures (sit bone and parts of the pubic blades). The Y-shape helps keeping the freedom of movement high even when riding in the low position typical for road biking.

The Sensitive Nervous System

Perineal of men
The deep channel relieves the perineal area, blood flow and oxygen supply are not restricted – mostly the cause of numbness and other impairments.
Pressure on the perineal area by sitting on the saddle.
With men numbness when biking most often occurs due to high pressure in the sensitive perineal area. The external genitals are usually not the cause for discomfort because they can yield and are generally not compressed by bone structures.

Pressure Distribution

It all depends on the optimal pressure distribution. The task with male specific saddles is to keep pressure off the perineal area and transfer the loads to the sit bones and to parts of the pubic arch. That is what the relief-surface of the new Ergon Men’s saddles is doing.

Pressure Distribution is mostly at the front area of the saddle

Pressure Distribution is now on the respective pelvis of the saddle.

Pelvic Tilt of men on the saddle is about 90 degrees

Pelvic Tilt

In comparison to the female, the male pelvis is less flexible, meaning male riders are sitting more upright on the saddle and put more strain on the sit bones. This allows the transition zone between the saddle’s fore and aft to be narrower (Y-Shape), creating more pedaling room.

Pubic Bone Angle of men are clearly steeper then women.

Pubic Bone Angle

In contrast to the female anatomy the male’s pubic blades stand at a much steeper angle and the pelvic symphysis sits notably higher.

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.

The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle.
