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.


  • Shell: Carbon Thermoplastic Composite with Wing Flex™ for freedom of thigh movement.
  • Rail: Carbon Braided 7x9mm.
  • Length: 300mm.
  • Width: 128mm.
  • Weight: 145g.

General information about our shipping
Bought this to replace my Arione CX braided carbon saddle snd am very happy. Note that the rails are deeper on the R1 so be sure to check your saddle height after installing this (I had to lower my seat a fair bit). The saddle is a work of art. Carbon saddle body and rails, exquisitely presented in a package that is also super comfty. If you're looking for light saddle, that looks awesome, is comfy and is able to put the cherry on a carbon fibre bike build cake... you won't be disappointed! :) Great price as usual from the team @ Merlin.
