First Look! Ergon Cyclocross Saddle Slips Into Production
Ergon has expanded the saddle range to include a cyclocross specific design. Based on their road models, it’s a bit flatter and smoother to make for easier dis- and remounts.
It has a closed cell EVA foam with more padding than the road saddles, and the shape is flatter since your moving around more on a ‘cross bike. The cover is stitched of two different materials – the center section is slightly grippier to keep you from sliding around, and the side/nose panel is slippier to prevent friction in the “pedaling region of your thighs” (my quote, not theirs).
