Fizik Aliante R3 Saddle
The Fizik Aliante saddle has become the go-to choice for comfort loved by both pros and enthusiasts alike. Several technologies help to give the Aliante top marks in the all-important comfort mark. Comfort begins with two width options: 143mm and 152mm and padding that is a touch softer and thicker than the typical racing saddle. A Twin Flex Carbon Kevlar shell is light and supportive with a built in give provided by the carbon and Kevlar weave interior surrounded by a carbon frame. This design delivers a hammock-like effect that is extra gentle to the sensitive perineum area.
This R3 of the Aliante saves about 15 grams thanks to a sleeker profile. The formerly swallow-tailed back end of the saddle has been replaced by a rounded, smooth back. Fizik retains the ICS compatibility so you can install ICS compatible bags and rear blinky lights just by snapping them into a mounting point on the back of the saddle. ICS means a super clean look and no straps flapping round or wearing into your riding shorts.
The Kium rails are standard 7mm round rails and will work with virtually saddle clamp. In case you are wondering, Kium is an alloy that is lighter and stronger than titanium. Fizik also claims its Kium material resists the bumps better than titanium. The Aliante R3 is a staff favorite at Excel Sports Boulder and several of us have ridden many thousands of miles on the Aliante model.
