All day comfort in a lightweight package. The SMC3 was developed as an all-round saddle, ideal for long day tours and those riders just seeking more cushioning. The ergonomic focus of the saddle lies in an optimized relief channel for the soft tissue. The specially designed saddle shape and the pronounced relief channel are ideal for those riders with sensitivity issues in the soft tissue area. Comfort and support come from a newly developed, high damping, orthopedic padding with micro air cushions.

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.
