Finding the right saddle is a highly personal topic. Different sizes and materials all make for varying levels of comfort which is why it is important to try before you buy. In this review, our customer Andrea was forced to buy a trainer and was in need of a new saddle for it. Luckily the Ergon SMD2 Comp did the trick. Check out the review for more!
Ever go for a ride and, after a long climb, find yourself having no sensation to your private bits? Most times it’s not a big deal, as mountain bikers we stand a lot and get off the saddle enough times to never feel the full effect of compressing your perineal area. It was never a thing for me either until I got onto a trainer.
Long story short…my schedule was a mess and I couldn’t ride my bike as much as I wanted, so I bought a trainer. Riding on a trainer forces you to stay seated and I found myself being numb and uncomfortable most of the time. I adjusted the seat angle up and down, front and back but nothing helped.
So, I ditched the WTB saddle and bought the Ergon SMD2 Comp Saddle. The choice was purely based on the fact that I like Ergon grips and the saddle comes in red, so I went for it!
I love the Ergon saddle, it’s a bit pricey to have the paint come off so easily but I am happy to have sensation restored to my private parts!
