Nobody needs added pressure.
Pressure at the perineum region was the primary area of focus Selle SMP set out to address with its SMP4BIKE saddles. The Plus model falls right into this realm, as it relies on the Italian brand's innovative designs to keep you comfortable, supported, and pressure-free while out on your bike.
The Plus is best suited for cyclists with medium-wide and wide pelvises, like the Pro, as it features a longer and wider body than other models in this range. Where it differs, however, is that it uses thicker padding throughout. 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 Plus is available in one size (279 x 159mm) and in the colors Black, Red, and White. The Plus is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 360 grams.
