Men’s Health

The Ergon development team carried out intensive research on the topic of men’s health. They found that the main cause of complaints when cycling is the saddle. Often times, men experience too much pressure on their perineal area leading to pain, discomfort, numbness and potentially more severe health problems. The SR Pro Men relieves this pressure with a very specific relief channel as well as better surface area distribution under the bony structures. Through MRT, CT analysis, many prototypes and test riders, we have ergonomically adjusted the saddle to the specific anatomy and needs of men.

More freedom of movement

Compared to women, the male pelvis tends to be less flexible. This means that men sit more upright on the saddle and put more of their weight distribution on their sit bones. Therefore the transition area between the rear of the saddle and the saddle nose can be kept narrow (Y-shape). This gives the legs more space to pedal.

Male and Female pelvic differences

In contrast to the female anatomy, the male sit bones are more narrow and where the two sides of the pelvis come together in the front is much higher. This results in more pressure being distributed on the male’s sit bones vs. a broader area of sit bones and pubic bones in women. We have taken this significant difference between male and female anatomy into consideration during saddle development.

No pressure on sensitive areas

The correct distribution of pressure is important. In order to protect the sensitive perineal area, the pressure must be shifted to the sit bones and parts of the pubic arch – this is exactly how the relief surface of Ergon men’s saddles works. Due to the more upright sitting male pelvis we have kept the surface flat and even for best possible freedom of movement. For the support we use the highest quality foams.

The Right Size

The shape and size of the saddle must match the sit bone width of the rider to maximize comfort and enjoyment.

The pelvic bone has a unique V-shaped and the saddle must offer the sit bones a large contact surface with the ability to meet the demand of different sitting positions. Various saddle widths are offered so that the usable seat surface corresponds to the riders unique sit bone distance.

The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle.

The saddle is available in the sizes “Small/Medium” for the seat bone with of 9 12 cm (3.5″–4.7″) and “Medium/Large” for the seat bone with of 12–16 cm (4.7″–6.3″).


Deep relief channel Eliminating unwanted pressures

The progressive relief channel, which deepens towards the rear, leads to an opening through the saddle shell. This construction combines all of the advantages of a cut-out saddle without the potential disadvantages. This design gives the saddle shell more forgiveness as well as specifically relieves perineal pressures. Too much pressure in this area often leads to discomfort and numbness in the genital area.

OrthoCell®-Pads Even better than gel

With the SM Comp Men, the new OrthoCell® material helps you to achieve your best performance without any complaints. These inlays, which are more durable and lighter than gel, ensure the best pressure distribution and provide the highest rebound force. This means they follow the movements of the pelvis with every turn of the crank, but return to their starting position very quickly.

Orthopedic Foam Comfortable and durable

The orthopedic foam is especially ergonomic for road cycling, but still extremely durable. With the addition of OrthoCell® inlays, the pressure of the bony structures is distributed much better by increasing the rebound force and dissipating vibrations.

The ramp More support – more power

The ramp at the rear of the SR Comp Men provides effective support for your buttocks, especially when you go to accelerate in the drops. The ramp keeps you supported so that more power goes into the pedals and less energy is wasted supporting yourself in a power producing position.
