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.
The R1's carbon thermoplastic composite shell and carbon braided rail reduce weight and increase saddle-stiffness.
Arione R1 is for The Snake: Flexible Spine.
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.
