The Ergon SR3 Saddle is designed specifically for road cycling, and features three different widths that allow you to achieve a personalized fit. It uses the same shape and design elements as it's higher-end siblings, the SR3 Pro and the SR3 Pro Carbon, but uses TiNox rails and a fiberglass shell to help keep the cost down for riders that aren't as concerned with saving a few grams of weight.
The SR3's distinctive shape is a result of extensive finite element method analysis that maps loads and areas of stress. This allowed Ergon to tune the shell construction for optimized deflection, and give the saddle its comfort-tuned shape. Covering the shell are progressive damping layers that are individual to the different saddle widths. Every size option gets its own layering for rider-specific compression. Adding to the SR3's chatter-smoothing ability, is a nose mounted micro damper. This damper, located in between the shell and TiNox rails, filters out smaller vibrations, and it works in conjunction with the isolated rear mounting to allow the shell to float independent of the rails. The result is one of the most forgiving saddles on the market. Additionally, the rails provide 30mm of adjustment for proper fitting.
Despite Ergon being a German company and doing the design work in-house, they relied on the Italian saddle expertise of Selle Italia to manufacture this particular saddle. As for sizing, you'll need to measure the distance between your sit bones. The Small width fits sit bones 9 to 11cm apart, the Medium 11 to 13, and Large 13 to 15. This allows you to ensure proper support for not only long term comfort, but efficient and unrestricted pedaling.
