Fizik Volta R1 Saddle with Carbon Braided Rails
Fi'zi:k is a racing brand. It represents beauty, speed, passion, freedom for those who race against each other, race against the clock and for enthusiast cyclists around the world who identify with the feeling of the fire of competition.
Fi’zi:k’s first U-shaped saddle. The brand has turned an all-time favourite ‘classic’ saddle shape into a must-have saddle for years to come. While the Volta’s shape won’t appeal to everyone, it will be everything to a certain few. The R1’s carbon thermoplastic composite shell and mobius carbon braided rail serve to reduce weight and increase stiffness. Unlike all other fi’zi:k saddles, this is a saddle upon which the rider is always moving due to its curved transversal section at the rear. It has a flat profile similar to the ever-popular Arione. Volta has been designed for riders who prefer a curved seating area on their saddle. One such example is riders who experience some lower back pain as a result of their static position on the bike associated with a flat seating area on their saddle. Such riders find it comfortable to move and slide along whilst pedalling, changing contact/pressure points as they go. Further comfort stems from the large surface area which serves to spread the load of the rider’s body.
