Item # ERG000C

Saddle up and ride.

The basic shapes of saddles tend to stay remarkably consistent, but that doesn't mean they can't be improved. Rather than relying on tradition, Ergon designed the SME3 Pro Saddle by computer mapping a whole lot of butts, basically, so it could optimize the shape of the of the saddle to provide support for your sit bones and space for your more sensitive areas. Elastic pockets under your sit bones provide flexible comfort without excessive padding, and multi-layered cushioning places padding only where you need it, so you don't lose pedal power to a squishy saddle.

Designed for enduro riders, the SME3 isn't just comfortable. It's fast and light, too, with a Y-flex carbon fiber shell and strong Tinox rails that provide just the right amount of flex. The Lorica cover is tough and easy to keep clean, and Ergon even coated the edges of the saddle with silicone to help stop if from chafing against your thighs. There's also a rubber underside, which is designed to make things more comfortable when you have to throw your bike over your shoulder to navigate downed trees or snowy patches.

Really Comortable Saddle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have this saddle on both of my mtn bikes and I really like it. It is pretty firm but does have some give to it, and it just fits me better than a lot of other saddles I've tried

Winging it

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Well, I hear good things and the Ergon name is known for comfort so I going to beat on this thing until one of breaks. Let the games begin

New Favorite

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

As a long time user of Specialized saddles on all of my bikes regardless of make, I had intended to put a Phenom on a new Niner XC build. Because of price and good reviews I decided to try the Ergon. Glad I did. I have a new favorite. Very comfortable and very light for the price. Helped me achieve my price/weight target for the build.

Solid Saddle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Built up a new bike over the winter and went out on a limb and bought this saddle. I wanted to try something new and customize my sizing a little bit. I went with the medium based on my measurements as other reviews have mentioned. Once I got all the new bike tweaks out of the way and the saddle positioned where I needed it I realized I'd made a great decision on a comfortable, durable, and stylish saddle. Happy with my purchase and looking forward to many more miles of riding.

Awesome saddle!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've only used this saddle a few times, but right from the jump it was super comfortable. This is not a featherlight saddle for the weight weenies, but if you want a heavy duty saddle with ultra comfort, you can't go wrong with this seat.

I measured my sit bones and bought medium. http://bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/9815/is-it-possible-to-measure-your-sit-bones-at-home
