The Arione CX Kium rail saddle is the latest version of our most popular saddles. It is about 30 grams lighter than the previous version with a slightly slimmer profile. Fizik suggests the Arione for riders with good hip and lower back flexibility, but we find it is a preferred choice for anyone liking a quality, light saddle with a relatively flat surface.
The rails are made with a special "Kium" alloy that uses silicon and chrome to delivery lighter weight and better damping compared to titanium. The Arione uses Wing Flex technology for a saddle shell that is stiff yet flexible for optimal performance and comfort. Many of us find the unique flex of the saddle really allows the rider to power through the pedal stroke and help provide a smooth pedaling action. The Arione is ICS compatible meaning a Fizik ICS saddle bag or ICS rear light can snap onto the saddle for a super-clean installation--no more straps flapping around.
