"Ergon’s CORE 3D® design intent is noticeable, especially when riding a hardtail mountain bike, and could make a great saddle option for anyone looking to wean their way off of the chamois. Does it flex and shift as Ergon claims? It sure does!" -

SMC Core

Has a different feel than my other saddles. Was not sure it was an improvement over my WTB saddles during the cold morning rides. Seems to be much better now that temps are above freezing.

Comfortable without chamois

Really enjoying the SMC Core for long distance rides without a chamois.

Super comfortable

Great on my hard tail off road - smoothes out the bumps, without being bouncy. Comfortable on longer rides.
Best saddle that I have had.

Love this saddle

Loved the e-bike version of this saddle so much that I bought the SMC Core for my Fuel ex. I’m an old guy with back problems and I feel fairly confident this seat keeps my back pain free when riding. Riding used to lead to back pain on most rides but I hadn’t had that problem since making the switch. I rode my e-bike with the SME Core exclusively for six months with no back pain at all. Switched to the analog bike for a few weeks and immediately started to get back pain from riding. I normally ride some pretty rough trails but decided to do some easier trails with the fuel ex since I would have to actually work to get up hills. I was riding smoother trails than usual and ended up with back pain within the first mile of sitting on my Bontrager seat. There could have been other contributing factors but the one known variable was the seat so I ordered this saddle for my Fuel ex. Some will say this seat is too expensive but I think it’s cheap insurance for an old guy like me. If this saddle gets me a few more years of riding the rough stuff I think it’s worth its weight in gold. 100% satisfied
