The support that started it all.
Selle SMP saddles were designed with the overall objective of reducing pressure on the perineum and the pressing of neurovascular structures while riding. This is achieved through the Italian manufacturer's innovative designs and relentless research and development, with the Pro model leading the charge in this SMP4BIKE saddle collection.
The Pro is best suited for cyclists with medium-wide and wide pelvises, as it features a longer and wider body than other models in this range. It wears the distinct curvature and support features inherent to this group of saddles, with the characteristic "beak" shaped nose 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 Pro is available in one size (278 x 148mm) and in the colors Black, Red, and White. The Pro is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 315 grams.
