Fizik Arione road bike saddle with Kium rails - The Snake: flexible spine.
The Arione is 1 of fi'zi:k's 3 Spine Concept™ Mens Road Saddle shapes. Of these 3, the Arione shape is flat, narrow and long.
If you are very spinally flexible (far less than 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders' width apart), you are a Snake. You achieve the performance position using your spinal flexibility alone, not rotating your pelvis at all. You will like the flat, narrow and long shape of the Arione.
Shell: Nylon Carbon Reinforced with Wing Flex™ for freedom of thigh movement
MarkExcellent saddle at a great price. Had this saddle on an older bike and was trying something/new/better/different. Decided the shape and wingfkex were exactly what the new saddle was missing. Had to have a second one for the new bike.
Mr LaporteAn amazing saddle that also looks slick. The small branding on either side near the tip rubs off quite easily that is the only negative
Mr RileyReplacing a worn out Arione. Great price on my favorite saddle - a hard to find item, especially in the States. Fast shipping for an overseas order too. I'm constantly happy shopping with Merlin Cycles. I'll be back!
DanielThis is my 3rd Fizik seat and I wouldn't ride any other seat, as I find they are the most comfortable for me.
Mr HappsIncredible comfort, great value too. Hesitated to move to such a different saddle but my decision has proved successful, worth every penny!!
