Ergon's Women's specific road saddle - Design by women for women. The right saddle for female road cyclists. In the average female anatomy, the pubic symphysis (front cartilage connecting the two halves of the pelvis) is positioned lower by a quarter than in a male pelvis, and the angle of the pubic bones towards each other is wider. Furthermore, mobility is higher in women, so when in the saddle, their pelvis often rocks further forwards. This can create high pressure in the genital area. The center relief, which is positioned far at the front, as well as the wider saddle flanks (V shaped) help distribute the emerging pressure over the bony structures of the sitting area. Particularly innovative: Relief inlays in the seat and genital area. Intensely developed and tested by the Canyon//SRAM UCI women’s team, the fastest women in the world.

It took a couple rides to get used to, but now it feels great!
Lael, I was wondering what kind of saddle you rode on while I was on the trainer last night due to the rain storm. Remembered this company and saw your review! Too bad they are out of stock. Thank you for all your inspiration as a woman cyclist.
Question: When do you think the M/L will be back in stock?
This is my go to saddle for any bike. I am an ultra-endurance cyclist, at times races thousands of miles on my bike in one go. This saddle is comfortable day after day with a perfect balance of cushion over firm support. I love that it has metal rails because I always travel with a seat pack to carry my equipment.
Such a comfortable seat! Did not take long to break in. I am a big fan!
