The Fizik Aliante is a comfortable saddle that offers enough performance to satisfy all but the most dedicated racers. Padding is more substantial than the on the Top Pick Fabric Scoop. A durable Microtex cover and Kium alloy rails make for a long lasting saddle. Well suited to both mountain bike and road bike use, it favors the rider who is less flexible and likes a more upright position. Road riders who enjoy long rides and prefer a frame with more relaxed endurance geometry will love its propensity toward the more upright position. You may buy it for its comfort but you also get a saddle that tips the scales at only 245 grams. If you spend a lot of time in the drops or like to move around on the saddle, take a look at the Fabric Scoop, the Editors' Choice Specialized Phenom Expert or the Specialized Power Expert.
All Fizik saddles now have two options: R1 for a Carbon rail and R3 for an alloy K:ium rail. The Aliante is now offered additionally in regular and large sizes.
