Drakon Saddle - Men's

Selle SMP saddles have a distinctive look that's focused on making your ride as comfortable as possible. The model here, the Drakon, is one of its most popular, and like the rest of the brand's lineup, goes about eliminating the all-too-common discomfort issue of excessive pressure at the perineum region and the surrounding soft tissue. It possesses all of Selle SMP's innovative designs yielding pressure-free support in the saddle which ultimately leads to more comfort over longer rides, This Drakon Saddle uses stainless steel rails to save a chunk of change of the pricier carbon version.


The Drakon is best suited for cyclists with medium-width sit bones, who find their pant size between 33 to 37-inches at the waist and favor a fairly minimal amount of padding. At the front of the saddle is the characteristic "beak" shape designed to promote a flat base while seated, without excessive pressure. The other signature SMP feature is its pronounced central channel which further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. Moving to the back of the saddle, it receives a pronounced rocker for support on climbs and helps divide body weight between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity region, also known as the sit bones. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the coccyx, or tailbone, while riding over rough surfaces.


The saddle's foam elastomer padding is wrapped in soft, genuine leather and sits atop a durable nylon/carbon composite shell riding on carbon fiber rails, ensuring a comfortable perch that'll hold up for road, tri and mountain applications.


The Selle SMP Drakon is available in one size, 276 x 138mm, is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 315 grams.
