Range topping SR3 saddle. Available with superlight carbon fiber rails. Weighing under 200 g in size medium. The shell is actually 3D, and it features "hollows" that provide controlled flex at the sit bones. Covering the shell are progressive dampening layers that are individual to the different saddle widths. Every size option gets its own layering for rider-specific compression. Adding to the SR3's chatter-smoothing ability, is a nose mounted micro damper.
This damper, located in between the shell and carbon fiber rails, filters out smaller vibrations, and works in conjunction with the isolated rear mounting in order to allow the shell to float independent of the rails. The result is one of the most forgiving saddles on the market. The rails provide 30mm of adjustment for a proper fitting.
The SR3 also has an easy-to-clean synthetic leather cover — just wipe it off with a damp rag. But more important than saddle hygiene is its silicone side coating. This reduces chafing, always a good thing, and it also ensures that riders are able to effortlessly shift weight fore or aft to enhance both power or comfort.
Ergon is a German, yet instead of manufacturing the saddles itself, Ergon enlisted the help of the saddle perfectionists at Selle Italia. As a result, every SR3 is manufactured in Italy by expert craftsmen. To size yourself for an Ergon SR3 Pro Carbon Saddle, you'll need to measure the distance between your sit bones. The Small width fits sit bones 9-11cm apart, the Medium 11-13cm, and Large 13-15cm. This allows you to ensure proper support for not only long term comfort, but efficient and unrestricted pedaling as well.
