Fizik Kurve Chameleon Saddle With Aluminium Rails
Each Kurve saddle is a dynamic riding interface that moves with your every twist and turn.
The results and analysis of extensive research, together with rigorous lab and field tests, have resulted in the choice of a new material for the Re-Flex shell: Kevlar. This provides a superior combination of flexibility and durability.
Kurve Chameleon Aluminium is for The Chameleon: Medium Spine.
If you have an intermediate degree of spinal flexibility (approximately 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 chameleon. Your degree of spinal flexibility helps you so far, before you need to rotate your pelvis slightly to achieve fully the performance position.
You will benefit from the increased width and slight curvature of the Chameleon shape.
Re:Flex base: The entire base of all Kurve saddles is a sensory receptor that responds to the body in motion, mirroring its every twist and turn. The Re-Flex construction is made of thermoplastic composite materials using long filament composites in specific alignments. The result is reactive: the saddle follows the movement of the rider’s contact points, optimising the interaction between rider and saddle.
Tuner: There are 2 different tuners – soft and hard. This interchangeable tension system allows the rider to customise their flex. The rider can personalise the saddle tension by simply changing a screw-on insert.

“The saddle uses a unique ‘Mobius’ alloy rail system and a ‘’ carbon shell designed to twist and adapt with your inputs. At 231g it’s no skimpy lightweight and it feels firm at first, but the long, flat shape makes snap weight movements a cinch, and the subtle way the Kurve moves with you dramatically increases comfort on lengthy stints in the saddle.” - BikeRadar
