Drakon is the ideal saddle for sports or leisure cycling. It has the same structure as the Forma model, with a medium padding. Covered in real leather for the black models and Lorica microfiber for the colored models. It has excellent all-round features and is particularly suitable for anyone with a medium-wide pelvis. Drakon is padded with elastomer in the supporting points for the ischial tuberosities and buttocks. The Selle SMP patented features, including the completely open central channel, the original front nose and raised rear support, give these saddles a fascinating aerodynamic style. The Drakon model is the intermediate solution between the Dynamic and Lite 209 models, which is particularly suitable for anyone with a medium-wide pelvis.

Features:

  • Cover: "Primo fiore" genuine leather carefully selected: soft, pleasing hand to the touch, compact and durable surface.
  • Padding: Special foamed elastomer with extraordinary elasticity: performance unchanged over time, right balance of softness and compression strength.
  • Body: Nylon 12 loaded with carbon fiber: to overcome the most stringent resistance and stability tests over time, while providing the necessary lightness.
  • Fixing Plates: Nylon 12 loaded with carbon fiber: higher standards of security and robustness.
  • Rail: Alloy tube Ø 7.1 mm: great longitudinal elasticity, high resistance to mechanical stress and corrosion.

Selle SMP Drakon Saddle (Black) (AISI 304 Rails) (139mm)
Saddle was comfortable at once. Was able to rotate hips forward to get more aero position without anticipated discomfort. Rather large-ish perineal channel/cutout not obtrusive, as a matter of fact, it is not noticeable at all. Rear sweep reminds me of a Concor Supercorsa, which gives you something to push against when climbing seated. Like the manufacturer recommends, this saddle is designed to ride a bit further back than others. We'll see how the saddle itself fares with day to day riding wear and tear. A bit pricey for a saddle (comparable to a new pair of high end road shoes) but considering what this design accomplishes and what body part to which you are giving you are making more comfortable, I'll say it is money well spent.
