June 11, 2015 – A Lightweight Saddle for the Bulls
Under Fizik’s Spine concept, the Aliante is intended for big, powerful riders and has earned a rabid following among some of the peloton’s strongest. With a supportive, rounded rear and slimmer nose, Fizik has left the basic form of the Aliante unchanged, but it has managed to remove significant weight. The flagship Aliante R1 with braided rails now weighs a svelte 185 grams, but all Aliante options shed grams. The Twin Flex composite shell supports big riders but still smoothes out the road, while a Kevlar composite comfort zone relieves pressure in sensitive areas. It’s the lightest saddle ever for the powerful bulls of the peloton.
