The Fizik Arione R3 Open saddle is equipped with a cut-out for 2018. This cut-out provides pressure relief on soft tissue areas. The Fizik Arione R3 Open has therefore become more comfortable than the standard Fizik Arione R3. The deeper your bike posture, the more pressure you will experience while pedaling, and this cut-out prevents that. The Arione saddle are a bit longer than most saddles, so you have more space to move around during a climb or a short effort.

According to Fizik, the Fizik Arione R3 Open saddle is made for Snake riders, which stands for cyclists with high body flexibility and no pelvis rotation while pedaling. They can effortlessly ride on the drops and usually need a narrow saddle. The Fizik Arione R3 Open is a lightweight and rigid saddle from the Arione collection. This is due to the carbon-reinforced nylon shell, the Wing Flex technology and the K:ium rail.

Saddle shape
This saddle has a flat rear part, making it highly suitable for riders who remain stationary on their saddle while they ride and whose hips don’t rock from side to side at all. The flat shape provides more support than a round saddle would for these riders.

This is a completely flat saddle which provides plenty freedom of movement. The shape makes it particularly suitable for riders with a high degree of flexibility in their spine. People with a flexible spine will have no trouble rotating their pelvis, meaning they won’t need any additional support to maintain their optimal riding position.

This saddle has a cut-out and alleviates pressure for those who often experience discomfort or pressure to their soft tissue areas.

Na het nodige zoekwerk voor dit zadel gekozen en er nog geen moment spijt van gehad. Sterker nog, ik had het veel eerder moeten kopen. Na de montage nog wel even een aantal millimeters moeten verschuiven om de voor mij exact juiste zit te vinden. Eenmaal gevonden zit het prima, stevig maar niet ongemakkelijk hard en de extra lengte van het zadeldek geeft wat speelruimte om te verzitten zonder meteen ongemak op te leveren. Enig punt van commentaar is optisch, het materiaal van het zadeldek oogt wat basic. Maar goed, als je er op zit zie je het niet...

  • Zit als maatwerk
  • Stevig maar niet te hard

  • Materiaal zadeldek oogt basic

Bra komfort

Pier Giuseppe, 18 June 2018

Buona sella per il prezzo

Buona sella, buona qualità costruttiva, e decisamente meglio delle selle convenzionali la comodità. Tuttavia migliorabile: un altro modello con maggiore spazio per le parti 'sensibili' sarebbe gradito. Bella estetica. Seduta un pò dura ma si avverte solo oltre le tre ore di guida. Guide in carbonio un pò troppo elastiche tendono a far rimbalzare quando si prende una buca.

  • Estetica
  • meglio delle selle convenzionali
  • qualità costruttiva
  • buco centrale un pò 'mini'
  • se rientra nel budget meglio una SLR superflow

Super zadel !

Na lange tijd zadelpijn en verschillende zadels getest te hebben het juiste zagel gevonden.

Comfort voor de racer, next level

Ik heb deze gekocht ter vervanging van mijn vorige Fizik Arione R3. Ik heb deze keer voor de nieuwe 'Open'-variant gekozen, in de verwachting dat deze nog lekkerder zit. En dat doet'ie! Is helaas wel duidelijk zwaarder dan de reguliere R3. Ook ziet de gladde kunststof bekleding er iets minder chique uit dan het quasi alcantara op mijn vorige.

  • Zit super
  • Voor iedere rijder is er een Fizik zadel
  • pro looks
  • zwaarder dan de gewone R3
  • bekleding is minder mooi dan vroeger
