Fizik Aliante Versus Saddle
Using their three most popular saddles as the starting point, the most notable change in Fizik's new Versus line of saddles is the addition of a pressure relief channel running down the center of each saddle.
The goal behind the Versus collection was to offer a high performance saddle that's immediately comfortable to the casual enthusiast who has an appreciation for top level equipment. After a considerable amount of research, Fizik decided that the channel design offered more consistent comfort and increased durability when compared to saddles with a full cut out.
In addition to the pressure relief channel, Fizik bumps up the padding just a touch compared to the originals.
Otherwise, the Versus collection is loaded with all the same great features. For the Aliante that means a braided carbon Twin Flex shell for added give you need it most. The K:ium rails that are 8 percent lighter than titanium and just as strong. For ease of adjustment, the rails are marked with a measuring guide. And finally the Aliante compatible with Fizik's ICS line of snap-in seatbags and taillight.
Fizik says the Aliante is designed for the "bull" rider which translates into someone who prefers to stay in one position when seated and doesn't necessarily have the best greatest flexibility.
The Aliante Versus has a weight of 259g.
