Ergon Saddle

Hello,

I am looking at the Ergon Saddles. Does anyone have experience with them?

I have an Ergon SMC4 that I like - it has a flat surface so I can move around on the saddle, good cushioning, and no numbness on 50 mile rides on my road bike. The saddles are designed by Ergon and manufactured by Selle Italia. I got a good price on a Selle Italia SLR Superflow saddle so I'm using that now on my road bike and will use the Ergon on my mountain bike. The SMC4 is marketed as Ergon's mountain bike "comfort" saddle.

I have an SR3-L Ergon on my Allez. I got it on sale at Nashbar when I was planning to sell the bike. The sale fell thru, so now I'm riding it. The shape is different. I like the wide back "porch", similar to my Brooks B17. I had to move it a little forward of the original location of the old Specialized saddle. The rather sharp transition from vertical to horizontal made it necessary to slide it forward a little. All good now.

I noticed that the new Specialized lady saddles have a resemblance to the Ergon.

Just to clarify, the OP didn't ask which saddle to get, just if anybody likes Ergon? Different deal. 😉

He/She is now up to 15 posts. You are over 36 thousand posts. Yet you begrudge him his post?

On topic...

I had one that came on a bike I was given. I don’t know what model it was, but while the shape was good, the padding was too much. I prefer less padding and find thicker padded, plush saddles cause more problems than they solve. Personal preference aside, I can tell you they’re quality products. The saddle was (is) well built and survived less than optimal treatment. Ergon products are a great option if they work for you.

I didn't like the sharp transition from flat to vertical. Cut into my legs a bit.
