Snake - a flat saddle, suits flexible riders whom tend to ride with their pelvis in a neutral position and be very active along the length of the saddle.

chrisEasy to fit, really comfortable, highly recommended!
Mr Spearman-OxxBought to reduce weight of my already lightest roadbike. Reasonably comfortable and neat looking.
Mr MarshallPrice was competitive with other stores and order was dispatched quickly. This is my second Fizik saddle and I have been very happy with the quality of both. I've not done any distance on it yet, but feels OK so far.
Mr marquezHave been running arione for years. Great construction and feel as usual.
Mr smithI tested this and the Aliante over a week and suffice to say the Antares came out on top. Its firm but comfortable and you can move around to get a decent position. Looks the business as well and. Love the carbon rails. Very light. Great saddle.
TedI already had an Arione R3 Kium, but wanted some bling. So for double the price, I saved 30grams and have a colour that matches slightly better. No regrets. (And I think it is slightly more comfortable than the kium....)
brianGreat saddle super light but just check as it won't fit all seatpost with its oversize carbon rails. It won't fit a trek madone.
RobI have rode the Fizik Arione for years but this is the first Arione R1 I have had. I have to say I'm extremely impressed. It's very well made, classy looking and extremely comfortable. It does take a couple hundred miles though for the padding to soften up. Once it does it's spot on. Would recommend to anyone.
NicolajThis is a really good saddle. Weight is bang on the spec at 166g and the craftmanship is excellent. Coming from Selle Italia SLR, this is slightly heavier but significantly more comfortable. Looks the part as well. The Arione is a rather tall saddle, so you may need to adjust the height of the seatpost.
AntonComfortable race saddle with firm padding. Very little flex in the shell. 300mm long x 132mm wide and is perfect for my bike fit and sit bones. Great for riders that move back and forth on a saddle and ride in a down and forward aggressive position. Lightweight saddle. Main top cover is anti slip. Long carbon rails with a big range of fore and aft adjustment. Reasonably light saddle with a quality build.
Mr BeraFizik seats are the most comfortable for me, love them, R1 is just top class.
SherrattUnbeatable great price from Merlin Cycles. I've tested this saddle & bought a custom one for my Summer bike as it works for me & decided to buy a matching saddle for my winter bike from Merlin. Always prefer Merlin over other online retailers because there is a REAL bike shop behind this site, worth thinking about when you buy stuff!
Mr JungNice quality, light weight, comfortable. Arione is now my favorite saddle.
Mr KoopmanVery happy with the delivery and the saddle. Delivery was fast and price for the saddle excellent. By far the lowest at that moment. Saddle is very nice and feels good. Fits perfectly with narrow flexible cyclists.
Mr VilchesAwesome price on a light weight saddle. Very comfortable. Good size for multiple seating positions. Absorbs shock great especially when combined with a solid seatpost. Saddle was priced and packed well.
