The Revolution of the Bicycle Saddle

ST Core Prime

The best saddle is one you cannot feel. Ergon says goodbye to seat problems: For touring cyclists the ST Core Prime combines ergonomics, pressure relief and movement support in a completely new way.

The first saddle with an ergonomic core

Ergon has elevated the design of the bicycle saddle – which has been virtually unchanged since 1960 – to a new level with the pioneering design principle of “TwinShell technology”. The result is a dynamic saddle with an ergonomic core: Two shells work independently in the sandwich design of the ST Core Prime. Between each shell is a floating high-performance foam material developed by BASF that acts as a damper. Due to the decoupling of the seat shell from the support shell, the saddle follows the cyclists natural pedalling movements in all directions. The advantages: Relief for the sit bones and perineal area, excellent vibration shock absorption, efficient pedalling ergonomics and protection of the back and spine.

The innovation achieved victory right away in the first comparison test in one of the largest trade journals for touring cyclists: “AktivRadfahren” magazine gave the ST Core Prime its top mark of “Very Good” and praised it as a “Brilliant Innovator” in the 3/2018 issue. The conclusion of the complex comparison of 13 touring saddles in usage and in the laboratory was: The special construction using BASF's Infinergy material is smart and innovative. In practice, the Ergon is an awesome ride... new development, first test, victory. Well done!

What exactly sets the Ergon ST Core Prime apart from other saddles? In a conventional basic design (frame rails/saddle shell/seat cushion/covering), the saddle shell assumes a dual function: It bears the load of the rider and at the same time the seat shell is a substructure for the seat cushion. It therefore must always be very rigid, which limits comfort considerably, even if additional shock absorbing elements are used.

This is exactly where the Ergon developers started. The lower, very rigid supporting shell bears the load while the cushion rests on the upper flexible seat shell. The elastically shock-absorbing ergonomic core, the Ergon Core, plays a crucial role with this floating two-shell system. It isolates the cyclist from bumps and road unevenness, filters vibrations from the direct seat area and supports the natural pelvic movements.
