"Ergon’s TwinShell Core 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!" - Bikepacking.com
I now have 3 of the SMC Core seats: gravel bike, e mountain bike, mountain bike. This is the best seat ever. On the road it removes all the small bumps and road imperfections. The flex on the seat also removes the pressure on the hips with each pedal strokes. For the gravel bike, the seat makes a huge difference riding washboard roads, you can stay seated and pedal. On the mountain bike the seat was a huge surprise. On rough uphills the seat absorbs the small bumps and allows a much more efficient pedal style. No more getting knocked off the seat over rocks and imperfections. I ride a bike with 150 rear travel and a 29 x 2.8 rear tire and I can still tell the huge difference the seat makes. The first week having the Core saddle I took my gravel bike to Death Valley and logged over 200 miles of road/gravel with it, never a sore rear or back. You never realize how much energy you output trying to save your back from all the imperfections you ride over, but with the Core seat your back will thank you. Best 150 I have spent on my bikes. Buy one!
Finally a saddle that is truly comfortable, had a complete bike fit but still struggled with butt comfort. This works so good on my indoor set up I've ordered another one for the gravel bike.
