The Fizik Arione 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 (130 mm) and Large (142 mm) version available of the Fizik Arione R1. The faster you ride, the lower the pressure gets on the saddle, requiring less surface area for support.

The Fizik Arione R1 has been designed for the so-called Snakes. The Snake is a rider with a flexible back who feels comfortable riding low on the drops and needs a narrow saddle. The Cyrano Snake Bars with its deep drops and the Arione saddle are made to suit this rider's needs .The Fixik Arione R1 is an extremely rigid and lightweight saddle. This is due to the carbon shell, the Wing Flex technology, and carbon braided saddle rails.

Saddle Shape
This saddle has a flat back which makes it suitable for riders who remain stationary on their saddle and don't slide around during their ride. Since this is a flat saddle, it better supports these riders than a round saddle would.

This is a completely flat saddle which provides you with plenty of freedom to move around. The shape is suitable for riders with a high degree of flexibility in their spine. People with a flexible spine have little trouble rotating their pelvis, meaning they need little to no support to get into the proper cycling position.

High Quality at a cracking price.!

I upgraded from the basic Fizik Arione saddle. this one has a lot less flex and seems to keep you from moving around and therefore you are able to get more into the rotation of the pedal stroke

Brilliant Saddle.

Used the standard version of this saddle for years, this carbon version feel stiffer and more supportive. Can't fault it.

Geweldig comfortabel zadel

Het is een prachtig afgewerkt zadel en met een goede padding waardoor het zeer comfortabel is, ik rij als sinds 2008 met diverse Arione's en wil niet meer anders. Zoals gewoonlijk bij Mantel, vandaag besteld en morgen in huis, hulde voor Mantel. Bedankt, vrijdagmiddag om 1600 besteld en zaterdag rond 1200 in huis. Ik koen goed gezadeld het weekend in.

Geweldig zadel

Vrijdagmiddagmiddag 22 maart in de middag besteld, zaterdagmorgen in huis, Top Top Top voor Mantel. Het Fizik Arione R1 regular is een heerlijk zadel, goede looks en zeer comfortabel. Jaren op diverse Arione's zadels gereden van normaal Kium type tot de CX en durfde niet naar een ander type te gaan. De gewone CX types niet meer te koop, maar dit type nog wel, vandaar deze weloverwogen koop gedaan. Echt een prachtig zadel en staat perfect op mijn F10.

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).
