Fi’zi:k Arione CX Braided Saddle

The Fi’zi:k Arione CX Braided saddle is a road saddle that has taken the original Arione design and made it 70 grams lighter by using a new lightweight foam. This saddle is only slightly heavier than the CX Carbon Braided saddle and the saddle cover has is made of nylon for a comfortable feel. This is a very light bicycle saddle featured carbon rails that provide tremendous strength and features WingFlex technology to ensure the riding position is comfortable.

The shape of the saddle has been flattened out a little when compared to the Arione and, with the saddle being pared down somewhat, it not as padded so will suit a rider who has already put a lot of miles in. It is important to note the fact that there is less padding in this saddle when compared to the Arione and for those who may be on the sensitive side in the rear-end department, this could cause some discomfort.
