Fizik Arione R3 Kium Rail Saddle
Now available in 2 widths, 130mm and 142mm to provide the perfect fit for more riders, regular and large.  Use the Spine Concept Evo system to find your perfect fit.
 
Arione R3 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.

Not too much to say about that one. Install the Fizik app on your phone to find out what type you are (Bull, Chameleon or Snake), and whether you need "normal" or "large". And then ride this thing a few hundred miles before making a call. The saddle adapts to your body, so it will not be comfortable the first hundred miles. But after that it's a killer. Been between Antares and Arione (unrelated back issues), and between large and normal (weight issues). And Fizik's spine concept makes a huge difference selecting saddles, and quite frankly seems to work. Anyway, R1 as a summer saddle, R3 as a winter saddle. Difference is weight.
Great and nice looking saddle. I like the soft cover material. 205 grams. Perfect fit for me.
Great value for money changed my endurance and overall comfort
Used these saddles for years, quality and comfortable
Very comfortable saddle. Great value. Would definitely recommend
Great saddle. Love the traction on the center strip compared to other versions. Recommend watching Fizik leveling video for how to level seat. Seats are so rider dependent, and this one works for me!
This is my second R3 Arione, once dialed in, I find they are a very comfortable saddle, strange thing is that I could not get on with an R7 [too soft perhaps]
Merlin seem to be the only place to stock the large (very slightly wider) version of this saddle AND at a really good price. The saddle itself is top quality - as recommended by the fizik app.
