M's ST Core Prime
Add some ‘boost’ to your next touring or commuter ride and ride on the clouds! The ergonomic saddle revolution for touring bikes ensures maximum long distance comfort. The floating TwinShell concept with the ergonomic core supports the natural pelvic movements while pedaling, actively relieves the sit bones, and reliably dampens bumps caused by the riding surface. The core constists of the latest E-TPU materials, bringing state of the art technology in responsiveness and damping. An anatomically adapted seating area has been optimized in elaborate studies and field tests. Thanks to the significant relief channel, numbness and pain are effectively prevented. The new ST Core saddle is tailored in detail to the needs and requirements of touring and e-bike riders around the world.
Available in 2 sizes for different sit-bone distances:
- Small / Medium (9-12 cm sit bone width)
- Medium /Large (12-16 cm sit bone width)
The floating ergonomic saddle core
When you pedal, your weight is shifted alternately to the left and right sit bones, placing added stresses to one side and then the other. This pressure is noticeably reduced by the Ergon Core material with its incredible rebound properties. As you pedal, the saddle rebounds to not only the weight shifting of your pelvis, but also vibrations from the surfaces beneath your tires. This creates a floating feeling with each pedal stroke resulting in maximum comfort.
Cycling on clouds
BASF’s innovative Infinergy® material sets new standards for suspension and damping on bicycles. The elastic saddle core supports pelvic movements when pedaling, absorbs road shocks and alleviates unwanted pressures on the back. When the pedaling pressure decreases, the Ergon Core, consisting of thousands of foam particles, immediately rebounds back to its original shape. Leading manufacturers of running shoes also use this E-TPU foam worldwide with great success.
Ergon TwinShell vs. standard saddle
The revolutionary Ergon double-shell technology takes comfort to a whole new level. With the conventional saddle there is only one seat shell on the frame. This standard shell supports all of the rider’s weight and must therefore be very stiff. The Ergon ST Core Evo Women utilizes two shells. The lower shell, supporting the rider’s weight is very stiff and the upper shell, which is a base of the padding material is very flexible. In between is the floating ergonomic core made of Infinergy®. This design isolates road shock, dampens vibrations, supports pelvic movements while pedaling and noticeably takes pressure off the sit bones.
Support that follows your pedal stroke
The view from below on the ST Core Evo Women shows how the high-performance elastomer damper decouples the two saddle shells from each other. This sandwich construction with its elastic core allows the saddle to follow the natural movements of the pedal stroke. This provides support in all directions from the vibrations of the riding surface to the rider’s pedal stroke
Comfortable and durable
The padding is made of orthopedic comfort foam. The foam is supportive, soft, but does not collapse. In addition to the foam, specific gel pad inlays offer even more comfort under the sitting area. With this saddle, it is not absolutely necessary to wear cycling shorts. The saddle is covered with robust microfiber to prevent abrasions and maintain the durability of the saddle
