    An update on an old favorite.

    Finding the right saddle can often be a bit of trial and error but we've found Fi'zi:k's Aliante to be quite agreeable for many cyclists. Those who have used it and it works for them swear by it and it becomes their go-to saddle for decades. If you're shopping for a new perch or are a fan of the Aliante but wondered if a cutout would offer a little more reduction in pressure, we urge you to try out the Aliante R1 Open Saddle.

    The "Open" moniker refers to the central cutout allowing for pressure reduction on your perineum. The R1's shell is constructed from carbon-injected nylon to save weight while allowing for a bit of give over rougher roads. Fi'zi:k's Spine Concept recommends this saddle for Bulls who are slightly less flexible and rotate their pelvises while pedaling. A rounder profile helps support the position but we feel that this concept is merely a suggestion. Most professional cyclists are as flexible as they come, at least when it comes to contorting themselves to a long and low position, and many of them prefer the shape of the Aliante.

    The R1 also saves weight by using braided carbon fiber instead of K:ium on the R3 for the rails. The braiding provides a new level of strength against both the clamping force of your seatpost and the load the saddle bears adding durability. The Comfort Core foam padding is topped with a black Microtex cover that looks great, is easy to care for, and supremely durable.

    • Fizik's classic shape now with a cutout
    • Bull Spine Concept for less flexible riders
    • Braided carbon fiber rails for strength and gram savings
    • Black Microtex cover is durable and maintenance-free
    • Carbon-injected nylon shell lightens the load and cushions the blows
    • Item #FIZ007S
