At first glance, the Fi'zi:k Triton 5. 5 Saddle looks there's no other way to put it weird. Then, when you hear it's designed to increase aerodynamics, it makes even less sense. How does a fat squared off nose help you cut through the air more efficiently It turns out that it's not the saddle itself that's more aerodynamic, but the body position that it allows you take. It lets you sit lower and with your hips rotated forward, flattening your back to reduce the drag that's caused by your body, which can help you save valuable seconds in a triathlon or time trial. The Tritone is comfortable, too, which a deep center channel that takes pressure off sensitive areas and varied density foam that supports your sit bones. Underneath the foam, the shell of the Tritone is made from carbon reinforced nylon, a stiff but comfortable platform that provides plenty of power without feeling like a 2x4. The Microtex synthetic cover is thermowelded, not stitched, which creates a waterproof and airtight seal for increased durability and smoothness, and is finished with silicone strips to keep you from slip sliding around like a wet seal on an iceberg. Fi'zi:k constructed the long 85mm rails from its special K:ium alloy, which is strong and lighter than pure titanium, and engineered a transition hook into the nose of the saddle for smooth and easy triathlon transitions. There's also a carriage kit on the back, which is designed to hold bottle cages, CO2 canisters, an inflator, and a tube.
