Welcome to the family.
As one the newest saddles to join the Selle SMP lineup, the Drakon carries the brand's commitment to addressing the all-too-common issue of pressure at the perineum region. It relies on Selle SMP's innovative design to keep you supported and pressure-free, which means more overall comfort while riding.
Residing between the Lite 209 and Dynamic, the Drakon is best suited for cyclists with medium-width pelvises, as it features a moderate profile and a fairly minimal amount of padding. At the nose, there's the characteristic "beak" shape designed to provide a flat base while sitting, without excessive pressure on the genital area. SMP's pronounced central channel was also incorporated, which further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The back of the saddle is raised for an enhanced seated pedaling position, where body weight is divided between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity region. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the coccyx while riding over rough surfaces.
The saddle's foam elastomer padding gets wrapped in leather for the black version and a durable Lorica microfiber in the colored version. Its durable nylon/carbon composite shell rides on stainless steel rails, ensuring a secure perch that'll hold up for both road and mountain applications.
The Selle SMP Drakon is available in one size (276 x 138mm) and in the colors Black and White. It is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 285 grams.
