Fizik Arione R3 K:IUM Saddle – Black
The Arione is the longest and flattest in Fi"z: k"s trio of pro-cyclist developed spine concept saddles and comes under the Snake moniker, designed for high body flexibility with no pelvic rotation whilst pedaling. Wing Flex gives the shell engineered flexibility along the edges where the inner thighs contact the saddle. By allowing this area to flex the rider can achieve a full range of leg movement in a wide variety of riding positions, this lets the saddle adapt to the rider rather than the rider having to get used to the saddle. The R3 specification Arione 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. The fundamental options of the Fi"z: k road saddle range are outlined below. Animal Profile: Bull, Snake, Chameleon – Determined by flexibility and pelvic rotation Width Sizes: Regular or Large – Determined by rider weight and power Surface Choices: Solid, Versus Evo, Open – Determined by rider preference for pressure relief Build Options: 00, R1, R3 – Determine saddle construction materials and weight The Arione R3 Saddle is available in two width sizes with one colour option.
