Built for the long haul, the Ergon SMR3 Pro Carbon Saddle is an evolution from one of the most successful endurance mountain saddles to hit the scene; the SM3. Being the evolutionary outcome of the SM3, the SMR3 features a new generation shell with more flex and greater stability. The flanks feature more give for more freedom of movement for the thighs, while the platform geometry has been ergonomically redrawn to capitalize natural positioning and comfort. The padding hails from the latest AirCell technology with the addition of micro air pockets for increased rebound, support and damping. Equipped with lightweight carbon composite rails and a carbon fiber Shell, weight is kept as low as possible without expensing comfort or stiffness. It's no wonder why the Ergon SMR3 Pro Carbon Saddle is the choice saddle for the most successful endurance team in recent years, the Topeak Ergon Racing Team.
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
Have done a few rides on this saddle out in Utah. At first I was skeptical about the design but once I was out riding I never thought about the saddle. It was like I always had it and was comfortable right away.

Very comfortable XC saddle and really light weight. My issue is that after a really slow speed crash (flipped while transitioning from a 180 degree turn to a 2ft drop) the carbon rails popped out of the nose of the saddle. Having this for only two months and it being my first incident I was rather surprised. And to top it all off, the design of the saddle doesn't allow for the rails to go back into place (not fixable according to EGRON!). $180 down the drain! EGRON was very responsive with my emails and did offer a 35% off crash replacement , which I declined. $135 is still too much for a disposable saddle!
The saddle was not in an unopened package, had been taken out and only half put back in. Obviously someone else had opened this, didn't like it and returned it. It should say this when you buy something that expensive..
