Description

Undercarriage starting to tingle, in a bad way, during a long right? It might be time for a new saddle, like the Selle SMP Dynamic Saddle. It's all about reducing pressure in key sensitive zones, with a dramatically dropped nose to provide a flat base without exerting excess stress on your down-belows. There's also an extra-large central channel to relieve pressure on soft tissue areas, and the back of saddle is raised to help you achieve an efficient pedaling position without the pain of squashed sit bones.

Selle built the Dynamic's shell from a composite of nylon and carbon, which gives you a firm pedaling platform that won't transmit excessive road vibrations into your rear. The cushion comes from the foam elastomer padding, which is firm but forgiving, and the exterior of the saddle is either leather or Lorica, depending on color. Both are durable and smooth, and there's no weight difference to speak of. Finally, the Dynamic clamps to your seatpost via rugged stainless steel rails, so you can ride as hard as you can with no slippage or bending.

  • Leather (black) or Lorica (white) cover

It's the go to!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Took a long time to try this saddle due to the price, wish I would have tried it first! Yes it's goofy looking, but hands down has the most contact of any saddle I've tried. Meaning more contact = distribution of weight on you nether soft tissues = more time riding without irritation.

I've found it works great tilted 5* nose down.

Comfort

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the second one I own. It is instantly comfortable and not binding in areas that other saddles grab you. I love the freedom to move around on long rides and still feel comfortable.

Test ride.

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

I test rode this saddle and the SMP 209. Bought the 209. But I wish I had tried this one longer. My impressions of the SMP line of saddles:

First, gentlemen, it is really important to protect the soft tissues around the perineum while riding 2-3 (or more) hours in the saddle. Urological problems can develop (ouch!) if the perineal area (including the pudental nerve) is compressed for long periods of time; especially if you ride in an aggressive forward position. Hence, the Selle SMP line of saddles.

That said, saddle choice is extremely personal. Variables such as specific physiology (sit bone width), position on the bike, fitness level, and BMI result in... no size/model works best for everyone.

So, SMP makes a lot of models. Check out the SMP website (or google Steve Hogg) for fit and correct model info. It seems the "Dynamic" or the "Lite 209" (inexplicable name) are the models to buy for most fit male riders of average pelvis width.

100% hand made in Italy (and beautifully so), real leather (in black).

*Important note: Setting up this saddle properly on your bike (usually nose down 2-5%) is essential to this saddle working properly. So check out the SMP website (or google Steve Hogg fitting) for proper set-up advice.

Did you try the Drakon model ? Its right in the middle between the Dynamic and the 209, perhaps a happy medium
