Renowned Italian saddle brand, “Fizik”, is the phonetic spelling of the word “physique”, a clear reflection of the brand’s commitment to satisfy and grant comfort to the rider on all the 3 contact points of the bike: the saddle, shoes and bar tape.
Given its reputation, it comes as no surprise that Fizik is currently working with 8 professional road cycling teams, which means more than 45% of the riders in the pro peloton are riding with Fizik. The latest product offering from Fizik this year is the Arione R3 saddle in Team Edition Colors:
Fizik Spine Concept
Are you a snake, chameleon or bull? Fizik’s Spine Concept allows riders to choose the appropriate type of saddle depending on the individual’s flexibility. If you are very flexible, then you are a ‘snake’. The flat and narrow Arione saddle is suitable for the ‘snake’ type of rider.
For those somewhere in between in terms of flexibility, you are a ‘chameleon’ and the flat and wide Antares saddle is what you should go for. Finally, those who may not be so flexible, you are classified as a ‘bull’ and the waved and wide Aliante saddle will provide that extra comfort.
