Fizik Aliante R3 K:IUM Saddle – Black/White
The Aliante is the widest and most longitudinally waved in Fi"z: k"s trio of pro-cyclist developed spine concept saddles and comes under the Bull moniker, designed for low body flexibility with high pelvic rotation whilst pedaling. Twin Flex construction combines two layers within the shell. A layer of multi-directional carbon fiber provides strength, while a bi-directional layer allows flex for comfort. The two layers are molded together so that the stiffer outer layer controls the flexibility of the inner layer. The R3 specification Aliante saddle features K: ium alloy rails which are 8% lighter than solid titanium and a composite fiberglass co-injected nylon base to provide a very reasonable weight. A durable Thermowelded black Microtex cover is fitted over a solid padding design to provide optimum weight distribution across the saddle surface when riding. Spine flexibility and pelvic rotation are inextricably linked to saddle comfort, the Fi"z: k Spine Concept Evo app for IOS and Android can provide guidance on which animal profile will suit you best.
