Fi'zi:k Arione Saddle
Price: $159.95buy now
The Arione is the only rival out there for the Fizik Aliante in terms of popularity. Why The key is the Arione's Wing Flex technology, allowing the saddle to flex in key areas to yield a virtually custom fit without sacrificing the critical shell rigidity and support you need for optimal power transfer and comfort. Combine Wing Flex technology with the fact that it's slightly narrower and longer than the Aliante, your rear will feel fantastic and you won't give up one whit of style to get there. You might have noticed that the Arione is no longer produced with Titanium rails. The cost of Ti has gone through the roof, and Fizik was keen to keep the price of the standard Arione in check. In place of Ti is a new rail material Fizik calls k:ium. According to Fizik, k:ium offers an 8% weight reduction in comparison to Ti rails, and thanks to its use of Silicium and Chrome, it has better vibration-absorption qualities and more corrosion resistance. The Arione is available in a wide variety of color options, and it's 100% compatible with Fizik's ICS taillights and saddle bags. They literally snap into the rear of the saddle -- say farewell to velcro straps and awkward clamps!
