Aliante R3 Open Saddle
The Fi'zi:k Aliante R3 Open Saddle strikes an optimal balance between pressure-relieving comfort, advanced technology, and premium craftsmanship, lending itself to longer rides where lesser saddles would leave you numb and tingly. The waved saddle profile is designed for what Fi'zi:k refers to as bulls, which are riders with low levels of natural body flex and high amounts of pelvic rotation while pedaling. Its anatomically shaped cut-out relieves pressure and numbness when you're racking up miles on the road.
Besides its pressure relief cut-out and waved shape, the Aliante R3 Open Saddle uses a carbon-reinforced nylon shell for lightweight efficiency, paired with Comfort Core foam beneath the Microtex cover for plush support. K:ium alloy rails further reduce weight, prevent corrosion in damp environments, and provide a strong basis for the saddle's connection. Additionally, it's compatible with Fi'zi:k's Integrated Clip System for seamlessly connecting saddle bags and blinking lights.

Fizik did their homework!
- I've put it through the wringer
I purchased this saddle for my Pinarello Dogma and was extremely pleased with the contour shape and comfort, even on 200K rides. Liked it so much that I bought a second saddle for my Colnago Master. Fizik really nailed the design on this saddle.

Shredded my bibs
Very comfortable seat. But, plastic on the sides shredded my bibs after two rides.

Wonder if you can take the piece off and file down the sharp parts..

- I've used it several times
Construction and shape are really good, this open version really helps you with comfort, bought this for my father following the fizik guide in terms of pelvic rotation and flexibility i would also say that guide gives you some direction but there are other factors, the aliante is one of the most comfortable saddles they have, and my father is loving it, on the other spectrum the arione has a more racing approach and it is not so comfortable, following the guide i should use an arione but ive tried and is not for me, want to try the antares but this saddle feels really good. I would recommend also to follow the width measurement of these fizik saddles and you will likely find the one for you

A well thought out, well made saddle
- I've put it through the wringer
This represents a huge improvement to the old Aliante saddle. You can tell that Fizik thought things through really carefully with their new line. 'Open' denotes the stiffer of Fizik's two platforms, with the alternative 'vs Evo' featuring a more pliable base. Personally I found that I preferred the Open saddles for mountain biking, since the pedaling platform feels a little better, and you spend a little more time out of the saddle. I currently run a 'vs evo' on my road rig, and I like the extra give you get, since you spend more time in the saddle. It's impossible to say which saddle is going to suit you until you try, but if you want a well made piece with lots of options, take a look at Fizik's new line!

Thank you for clarifying the differences in the platforms.
