In collaboration with triathlon legend, Jan Frodeno, we have been working our first triathlon saddle for over a year. The result? A saddle design that optimises ergonomics and performance.

Through intensive research, Ergon R&D has developed the revolutionary Power Position concept which divides all athletes into two seat types – Front and Mid. The improvements are immediately noticeable: less muscle fatigue and more performance on the bike and while running.

Our goal was to improve triathlon seat ergonomics to enhance performance. With 20 years of experience and expertise, we have achieved this at the highest level with the Tri series.

Through research and development, ergonomics is at the forefront of our efforts. Utilizing joint studies with numerous triathletes, we develop tailor-made saddle solutions. The consideration of gender-specific saddle shapes plays a central role in a saddle design. During several years of intensive development involving top athletes, the Ergon development team has classified two types of seats: Front and Mid.

In the extremely forward leaning upper body position, seat width is no longer an issue. With a revolutionary seat type concept, Ergon has developed the perfect saddle shapes for better performance output.

SR Tri Mid
Developed for riders who tilt their pelvis forward less and place more weight on the middle area. Therefore, the saddle design features a slightly longer and narrower front in a Y-shape.

- Less muscle fatigue and more performance
- Ergonomically designed with highest precision for the forward leaning upper body position of triathlon and with special attention to male and female anatomy
- Padding for maximum performance over long distances
- Reduced back fatigue and improved pedalling ergonomics
- Improved transition from cycling to running thanks to dynamic sitting
- Protects perineum and genital area, prevents numbness

- Name: SR Tri (Saddle Road Triathlon)
- Saddle Shell:
Nylon Composite
- Rail:
- Cover:
- Padding:
Orthopedic Comfort Foam
- Saddle Nose Width:
48 mm
- Weight*:
+- 205 g

More Relief with dynamic Sitting
The Ergon SR Triathlon’s shape is specifically designed to reduce muscle fatigue. The flat front and ergonomic design decrease friction and provide more room for micro movements, resulting in less stress and rigidity for the rider’s back and lower back.


Best Stance – best Performance
The slim saddle nose supports a closed, parallel leg position for improved pedaling ergonomics. Proper leg placement also reduces overall riding fatigue, especially on longer trips.


No Pain, more Gain – long Distance Comfort at its best
Sitting for extended periods with less stress – with the Ergon SR Triathlon Men, you gain support that offers optimal relief for long-distance rides – because pain-free rides mean better performance.


Gender-Specific relief
The anatomy doesn‘t lie. Women and men differ particularly in the seating area, which is why the Tri saddles also follow the proven Ergon relief principle. Due to the different pelvic shapes, individual saddle designs and relief solutions are required for women and men.

A Better Start for the Run
The SR Triathlon saddle improves performance even after you get off the bike. The design provides relief and optimizes pedaling ergonomics for more mobility and less fatigue, helping you get into a fast run.


Originated from Project TRI: Speed is in the Details
During Ergon Project TRI and with the help of world-class triathletes Jan Frodeno and Imogen Simmonds, we pursued the goal of optimizing saddle ergonomics of triathletes down to the smallest details.

Project TRI: Ergonomic expertise meets world-class triathlon
In the top tier of endurance sports, the requirements of the three different disciplines are closely linked. The transition zone challenges athletes not only in terms of time, but also in terms of preparing the body for the next discipline. In the case of transitioning from cycling to running, the sitting position on the bike can affect in the outcome of the marathon run directly. During Project TRI, Ergon’s development team worked together with world-class triathletes, Jan Frodeno and Imogen Simmonds, with the goal to optimize saddle ergonomics down to the smallest detail and elevate the athletes’ performances. 20 years of experience and ergonomic expertise allow us to tackle and solve these problems at the highest level.

In research and development, ergonomics is at the forefront of our efforts.
Utilizing joint studies with numerous triathletes, we develop tailor-made saddle solutions. The consideration of gender-specific saddle shapes plays a central role in a saddle design. Different pelvic shapes of men and women require individual saddle constructions for each gender. Saddle comfort and relief are key to top performances for professional athletes.


Through extensive testing and rider feedback, the first prototypes are built in-house in Koblenz, Germany. The athletes test them extensively in training and competition and give us their direct and well thought out feedback. This allows us to further refine and optimize the prototypes.


Jan Frodeno X Ergon Project TRI
A comfortable, aerodynamic position that lets me put all my power to the pedals and eases the transition to the run is crucial to winning. From the start of the development process, the focus was clear – deliver the maximum ergonomic support I need to guarantee the highest performance advantage. My collaboration with Ergon is doing just that.

Jan Frodeno was the first to win both the gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games and the World Champion title at Ironman Hawaii in 2015, 2016 and 2019. He’s at the top of the list when it comes to German triathletes in the Ironman distance.


For Jan, fine-tuning his fitness and performance in each of the three disciplines is the real motivation. Years of commitment to the sport help this veteran to enjoy the process and to live in the moment.
