Description

Description

The Fizik Aliante R1 saddle is part of the further developed Spine Concept. Before, this just looked at the flexibility of your spine, but now it takes the way you ride into consideration as well. The rotation of your pelvis is essential to determine whether a saddle suits your needs or not. There's now both a Regular (143 mm) and Large (152 mm) version available of the Fizik Aliante R1. The faster you ride, the lower the pressure gets on the saddle, requiring less surface area for support.

The Fizik Aliante R1 saddle was made for the so-called Bulls. The Bull is a rider who's spine isn't overly flexible. Their power is best transferred to the pedals in a slightly more upright position. The seat bones therefore also require a little extra support. The Bull is probably best off with the equally named and extremely compact Cyrano Bull bars and the wider Aliante saddle. The Fizik Aliante R1 is one of the lightest and most rigid saddles in the Aliante collection because of the carbon shell with Wing Flex technology and the Carbon Braided rails.

Saddle shape
This saddle has a round rear part, making it ideal for riders who move around on the saddle and rock their pelvis from side to side while riding. The round shape provides some extra freedom of movement over a flat one.

Flexibility
This is an S-shaped saddle, meaning it's raised at the rear and lowered in the middle. This S-shape makes it possible for riders with an inflexible back to still assume an aggressive position on the bike. This has to do with the rotation of your pelvis. Someone with an inflexible spine will have more trouble tilting their pelvis forward.

La selle idéale pour moi

J'avais une vento argo R3 installée d'origine sur mon vélo (selle de très bonne qualité et très confortable au début mais l'évidement trop large pour moi me causait quelques douleurs après 1h de vélo). J'ai donc changé pour la série Aliante R car j'avais déjà une autre selle Aliante que je trouvais super confortable. J'ai suivi les conseils de Fizik et je suis un Bull selon les principes du spine concept. Résultat cette selle Aliante me convient parfaitement, je peux rouler des heures sans sentir aucune douleur.

Pros

  • confort
  • finition

Nice saddle

This saddle is light and it looks good. 4-5 hours ride is ok with a good pair of bibs. Hard, but not uncomfortable. Buy if the form fits you, and be sure to measure your sit bones. The Aliante 00 may look a little 'cleaner' and is 10 grams lighter, but also firmer. Consider the R3 as well, if you can live with the extra weight - just as good as the R1. Mantels 'try & return' policy is great!

Pros

  • Firm, but comfortable
  • Light
  • Looks good

Reteblij met mijn nieuwe Fizik Aliante R1 zadel!

Heerlijk zadel. Mooi afgewerkt wat ik van Fizik gewend ben (het is mijn 5e al). Alleen nog een blikje transparante ledervet kopen want het geborstelde leer heeft echt wat extra bescherming nodig. Keurige verpakking en duidelijke gebruiksaanwijzing.

Pros

  • Afwerking
  • Comfort: zit heerlijk!
  • Kwaliteit
  • Verpakking en handleiding/gebruiksaanwijzing

Cons

  • Geborsteld leer is mooi maar onderhoudsgevoelig

Confort moyen

Pour l'instant les 2 sorties de 75 kms réalisées ne n'ont pas convaincues du confort de cette selle .Nous sommes très bien posé sur celle ci mais qu'elle est dure. J'appréhende une sortie beaucoup plus longue

Pros

  • Bonne assise
  • Look
  • Qualité percue

Cons

  • Selle trop dure

Detailed product description

Carbon Braided Rails
The carbon braided rails are full carbon saddle rails wrapped in a carbon mat to increase rigidity and ensure the saddle can't shift accidentally.

Wing Flex Technology
By adding a slight amount of flex to the side panels of the saddle, Fizik has increased the comfort significantly. The Wing Flex technology creates a little extra space for your legs, allowing you to put out more power with more ease.

ICS: Integrated Clip System
You can attach a FiZik Saddle Bag or Light to the rear of the saddle with the integrated clip system (saddle bag/light not included).
