WOMEN'S ELAN SHORT NOSE POWER ERGO DESIGN SADDLE
DESIGNED FOR WOMEN
Saddle pressure can make riding your bike painful. The Scicon Sports product development team together with our inhouse bike fitting experts at ASG Bike Science and leading product developers in the field of saddle design have accepted the challenge to make numbness and pain disappear with our Scicon Sports Elan Power Ergo Design performance saddle specifically designed for women. Many women experience saddle pain and numbness on their labia when riding, naturally leading to less rides or quitting riding altogether. Our team of product designers and bike fitting experts set out to develop a performance saddle for women that is ergonomically designed that responds to an issue with scientific research and field tests, creating a product that provides structural and anatomical support, reducing pressure on sensitive soft tissue. The days where riding your bike is painful are no more.
POWER ERGO DESIGN
Power Ergo Design is a project initiated by Scicon Sports inhouse bike fitting studio ASG Bike Science, that brings bike scientists, product designers and athletes together to develop high-performing, comfortable and aesthetic cycling products. The mission of the Power Ergo Design project is to develop products with only the highest standards, combining product design mastery and scientific research in the field.
WIDER SEAT PROFILE
Slightly shorter and wider than the average racing saddle, the Scicon Sports Elan saddle has a short-nose and ergonomic design with a wider seat area for women versus the mens version, following a lightly waved seat profile.
The combination of a reduced seating surface, a short nose design and a central cut out, removes pressure from soft tissue, increasing blood flow and improving ride comfort in a variety of riding positions for long days in the saddle. Improved blood flow also increases muscular efficiency of up to 10%.
BETTER HIP ROTATION
The performance profile of the Elan saddle with a short nose design and wider seat profile, allows sufficient hip rotation, supporting road cyclists and mountain bike riders alike to lean forward into a lower position. Whether riding in the drops in an aggressive riding position on the road bike or leaning forward on the mountain bike on steeper climbs for better weight distribution, the short nose design allows both the required flexibility to reposition in the saddle.
SHORT NOSE DESIGN
The short nose saddle design allows for better hip rotation, making it the perfect saddle for both riding disciplines, road and mountain bike.
UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON RAILS
The saddle is built on lightweight, durable braided carbon fiber rails, holding a carbon fiber reinforced polymer shell to give a stable yet light saddle structure.
COMFORT COMPRESSION CONTROL
The medium density foam technology incorporated in the ergonomic design concept provides ride comfort and support for long rides while maintaining its shape over time. A built in marker allows you to check compression of the foam padding over time.
With carbon braided rails the Scicon Sports Elan Power Ergo Design saddle is a lightweight performance saddle weighing in at just 199 grams in a one size fits all, measuring 148mm in width and 248mm in length.
THE PERFECT MATCH
The Scicon Sports X-Over Bib Shorts combine perfectly with the Elan Power Ergo Design saddle to create the ultimate contact point between you and your bike – delivering optimum comfort and performance. The bib short’s interface, the seat pad and the placement are designed to match with the profile of the saddle.
