The Aliante is 1 of fi’zi:k’s 3 Spine Concept™ Mens Road Saddle shapes. Of these 3, the Aliante shape is the widest and most longitudinally waved.
The Aliante R1 is the top-of-the-line saddle available in this shape. The composite carbon shell with co-injected nylon Twin Flex™ ‘sweet spot’ at the centre, and carbon braided rail, make this a lighter and stiffer alternative to the Aliante R3 Braided, R3 K:ium, R5 K:ium and Gamma models, whilst not compromising comfort.
Shell: Composite Carbon with co-injected nylon Twin Flex™ ‘sweet spot’ at the centre
Rail: Carbon Braided 7x9mm
Scuff guards on either side towards rear of saddle
Integrated Clip System: Yes
Aliante R1 is for The Bull: Rigid Spine
If you have a relatively low degree of spinal flexibility (more than 90 degrees between your straight legs and back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders’ width apart), you are a Bull. Your degree of Spinal flexibility will top out quite quickly when attempting to adopt the performance position. For this reason you will rotate you pelvis fully.
JohnBought the all carbon model after breaking the Aluminium rails on the previous model that I owned. I have been pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable the saddle is especially given the reduced padding
Mr WadaVery light and soft. I can ride for hours with this without hurt.
E. DHoopLight and very well made. Surprisingly comfortable given the thin padding layer
williamsFizik saddles are one of the best on offer today, once you find the style that fits you and you`ve set it up to your body you can`t go wrong, not the lightest but this carbon rail saddle comes close, I find it good on long rides no need to keep moving about to stop any numbness.
