Completely new

The Ergon developers have taken a completely new approach to the topic of women’s road racing saddles. After intensive research with X-ray and CT analysis, they have created a new generation of saddles in conjunction with a deep R&D with world class racers of the Canyon/SRAM racing team. Countless prototypes have been tested by both professionals and recreational riders. This feedback, in combination with scientific data developed a new generation of performance and comfort for women.

    The flexible pelvis

    Women are significantly more mobile in the pelvis than men. In the typical racing bike riding position, the pelvis often tilts forward more. This often causes considerable pressure in the genital area. The SR Women distributes the sitting pressure in a more rocked forward position with a wide, V-shaped design to match the female pelvis shape and mobility.

    The deep pubic symphysis

    For anatomical reasons, the pubic symphysis (anterior cartilage connection between the two halves of the pelvis) is about a quarter lower in women than in men. In addition, the angle of the pubic bones to each other is larger. This was taken into account in the SR Women in order to prevent complaints in the sensitive areas.

    The sensitive genital area

    Due to the characteristics of women’s pelvis, women have suffered discomfort for years on standard saddles. The SR Women alleviates sensitive soft tissue pressure with the tapered relief channel preventing numbness and pain. Alleviating this pressure better distributes the rider’s body weight more towards the sit bones while allowing a more comfortable pressure-free forward rocked position.

    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 female pelvic anatomy is a unique V-shape. The proper saddle design must support the bony structures in 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 distance of 9-12 cm and Medium / Large for the seat bone distance of 12-16 cm

    CUSTOMIZED RELIEFPressure relief

    Based on intensive research and feedback from our test riders, we created a specific tapered cut out that supports and alleviates unnecessary pressures on sensitive female anatomy. This channel is precisely where women need relief.

    ORTHOPEDIC FOAMComfortable 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 RAMPMore support – more power

    The ramp at the rear of the SR Women 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.
