Oh Donna, we've been waiting for you

The ladies-specific Ariona Donna 00 Women's Saddle is Fi'zi:k's answer to the call from professional female riders for a saddle designed specifically for their unique anatomy. 

The Arione Donna 00 Saddle takes the shape of the regular Arione and reforms it, making it slightly shorter and slightly wider at the rear to accommodate a woman's wider sit bones. A saddle's comfort lies mainly in its shape, but the Donna also makes use of a high density foam padding in order to create the pressure relief channel that runs the length of the saddle. But don't worry that you'll feel like you're riding on a squishy foam pad that hits you in all the wrong places. To the contrary, Fi'zi:k has a scale by which they measure their saddles from plush to medium to firm — the Donna 00 comes in somewhere between medium and firm.

But since the shape, which includes the wider sit platform and the soft-tissue relieving channel, has been tailored to fit the women's anatomy, this saddle will give you a comfortable ride whether you're taking a few laps around the park to spin the legs or are near the end of your mid-summer century ride through the hills. The shell itself, like the men's version, is made from nylon that is reinforced with carbon, and it makes use of their Wingflex technology. The Wingflex shell flexes downward in the critical area where the inner thighs contact the saddle allowing for more efficient, full-range movement while pedaling.

At the heart of the Donna is its one-piece Mobius carbon rail construction. This is a braided carbon weave that was filled with unidirectional fibers for exceptional strength and road-tuned dampening. Fi'zi:k took the braided Mobius platform and wrapped a rough carbon cloth material around the rails' clamping zones, ensuring both a secure bond between the rails and clamp, and to increase overall durability. The Mobius differs from the carbon braided rails found in Fi'zi:k's other saddles in that -- besides its new one-piece construction -- it was built with flatter sections on both sides of the clamping zone. In addition to reducing weight, these flat areas provide more vertical compliance than round rails, further increasing your comfort through the subtle flex they provide.

The Fi'zi:k Arione Donna 00 Women's Saddle has a Black/anthracite cover made from microtex microfiber. Tipping the 159 grams, it is in line with some of the lightest minimalist men's saddles. It's ICS compatible so it can accommodate any of Fi'zi:k's saddle packs or their rear taillight.

Very Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have been riding the Fizik Antares and Arion saddles on my road bikes for years, and have always loved the men's saddles even as a female cyclist. Due to some IT band issues, it was recently recommended that I buy a women's saddle that is the right size for my sit bones. The Donna was the right size, and I absolutely love this saddle. I was shocked it is even more comfortable than the others Fizik saddles I've used. I have now used it for over 700 miles, including a long 6 hour ride, and I have had no discomfort. The carbon saddle is very light - just make sure your seatpost clamp works with it. I did also test out the non-carbon version that is less expensive, which was also nice. I'm not sure why, but I do prefer this one. It does not have the cutout, but am not sure how much of a difference that would make.

Great saddle. Fully recommended.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So I purchased this saddle for my wife, she was feeling some numbness in that area.. that sensation is completely gone.
No complaints at all. Saddle is very comfy, lightweight and great looking.
Now for those talking about the relief channel I suggest you flip it over, you'll notice the carbon fiber in some areas is layout different to produce that effect which seems to work perfectly.
Well done Fizik!

Finally, a well designed women's saddle!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Always on the lookout for a wide, flat (as opposed to semi-round or round) profile saddle. Do not care about gender designation, just fit.
Wider platform allows for sit bones to carry the load and minimal padding. Was riding a Selle Italia SKN which is 150mm but alas they discontinued it. Another in a long line of "hey, this saddle works" only to have it discontinued. Is it me? I think so.

This Arione Donna 00 is wonderfully light, wide @ 147mm and for me padded just right. I believe the carbon shell will give this saddle added life as well.

Never understood why manufacturers make women's saddles uber padded and HEAVY. Squishy padding just means saddle sores, cut outs simply increase the areas of discomfort and heavy means no thought went into the product. Padding I got, well placed shell support is what I need and good design is what I want.

The sale price allowed me to give the Donna 00 a try and I am happy I did. Once I gave it a ride I bought another. Figure me liking it must be its death knell so I should have a stash!


No pressure relief channel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This saddle says it has a pressure relief channel and is soft in that area but it doesn't. The model below it does and I have it on another bike and love it however this model is horribly uncomfortable. I've tried it with all varieties of shorts/liners and can't get it comfortable. I've been riding it for over a month and can't make it work

How is this different than the other Arione...

How is this different than the other Arione Donna saddle? Also, it says there is a pressure relief channel, but unlike the other Fizik saddles in the women's line, it doesn't appear visible in the photo.
