As cyclists, all of us have been forced at one time or another to choose between performance and comfort. If you were one of the early adopters of aluminum framesets, you especially know what we mean. Thanks to an innovative design that combines comfort and tuneability, the Fizik KURVE Snake Saddle proves that top performance doesn't have to hurt. Why Snake Well, in an effort to eliminate some of the guesswork from choosing the saddle that suits you best, Fizik developed Spine Concept, a fit system that divides cyclists into three groups (Snakes, Chameleons, and Bulls) according to riding style and spine flexibility. If you're a Snake, you prefer saddles that are flat and narrow; you're a flexible rider who changes positions frequently and supports your weight on your sit bones. But let's talk about what truly sets the Fizik KURVE apart from the rest. With standard saddles, comfort comes from some form of foam padding; but foam takes a little while break in and can degrade over time. Instead of padding, KURVE saddles rely on the base of the saddle for comfort. The KURVE's composite Re:Flex shell behaves like a sensory receptor, mirroring your movements in the saddle as you ride. Key contact points in the shell -- such as those under your sit bones and perineum -- are constructed using fewer composite layers, thus enabling them to respond to pressure from your body. The new design means KURVE saddles have a more rounded top than their traditional counterparts -- that's the Re:Flex shell waiting to do its job. Once you hop on the bike, the saddle flexes, conforming to the shape that fits you best. Best of all, since KURVE saddles don't rely on padding for support and comfort, no break-in time is required -- just install it and ride. Fizik didn't stop there though. The KURVE Snake Saddle also features the company's new Tuner insert, an interchangeable nosepiece that allows you to customize the flex of the saddle.
