In 2004, accompanied by 4 international patents was introduced the Pro, the first model of the SMP4BIKE line. The SMP4BIKE line was innovative for its "designed on your body" technology, which is designed to support the cyclist's weight distributing it over pelvic bones (ischial tuberosities) and buttocks and preventing the compression of the perianal structure, avoiding vein and capillary vessel occlusion and the chance of nerve injury.
In 2005, Selle SMP efforts in promoting cyclists’ health and well being were recognized by a study published in the prestigious Journal of Sexual Medicine. A year later the SMP4BIKE Tourism line was introduced on the market and The SMP4BIKE line models were awarded the prestigious Eurobike Product Design Award.
