Fi'zik Arione R3 Race Edition Saddle Kium Rails

The Arione R3 Race Edition Saddle with K:ium Rails has been a fixture on bikes at every level of the sport for so long that it feels as though it's as old as cycling itself.

The body itself is a blend of nylon with composite glass reinforcement, a composition that targets vibration damping without turning into a bouncing trampoline at high cadences. It's wrapped with Fi'zi:k's microtex synthetic, ever seam of which is thermowelded to create a low profile face that's kind to Lycra. Like with its standard edition counterparts, the Race Edition Arione is shaped to accommodate cyclists who are flexible enough that their hips don't need any rotati...
