As the enduro wave continues to swell, Ergon's experts have moved their focus to developing enduro-specific ergonomics. Starting with a v-shaped design, the SME3 allows for a full range of position changes and adjustments in saddle height. To meet the indecisive ways of enduro riding, Ergon reformed the padding of their popular XC saddle, flattening out the profile with no kick up at the rear, enabling fast switches from sitting to standing, to crushing a decent from behind the saddle. The EVA padding and flex optimized shell enhances comfort for those long days of pedaling undulating terrain, while the microfiber cover is both lightweight and robust to ensure longevity without adding unnecessary weight. When it's all said and done, the SME3 is a fine choice for a quick upgrade before this weekend's race!

Sit Bone Width
Sit bone width is to be measured while sitting in an upright position.
Measurement should be made in an upright position, however when taking the normal more forward MTB riding position, the V-Form of the pelvis means the areas supporting the weight are narrower than the sit bone width. This explains the required saddle width often being narrower than the measured sit bone width
I've used Ergon products before and this seat is in-line with the high quality products they produce. I got the medium size, after going through their size guide. Overall good looking seat, I like the shape so far (only 1 ride in). The padding is stiffer than a WTB seat I replaced it with, but does not seem to impact comfort.
I rode this saddle for three rides and all three were the worst rides i had ever put my taint area thru. I have to say after owning or riding long term saddles from WTB, Ibis, Chromag, Specialized, bontrager, and ergon This saddle was designed with hatred of the mountain bike community.
Ever been off a bike for awhile then went on a big ride to only find that sitting down was as enjoyable as a sharp stick to the eye ? That is what this saddle gives you every time.
The padding is that of a concrete block and i think it would have been a better decision to ride my bike sitting on nothing but the raw seat tube using the likes of a large locking seat post collar like that of the salsa.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a chromag. Their saddles from xc all the way to freeride are great in durability and comfort.
