Find your preference.

Specifically designed for the rigors of all-mountain and marathon riding, the Fizik Gobi M5 VS K:ium Saddle wants to make you comfortable on the trails. The right saddle depends heavily on personal rider preference as well as individual biomechanics and flexibility, and Fizik, renowned for its lithe, sleek race saddles, understands this refreshingly well. It took its Gobi M5 design and adapted it to riders who benefit from saddles with pressure relief cutouts, adding a channel down the center of the Gobi M5 and surrounding it with low-density padding to ensure a smooth, accommodating ride.

Accommodating doesn't have to mean soft and heavy, and in the case of the Gobi M5, which weighs in at a claimed 220g, it doesn't. Fizik shapes the 126mm-wide saddle on a carbon-reinforced nylon shell, built with its WingFlex and TailFlex technologies to allow the saddle to flex during the pedal stroke and as you hit rough sections of trail, without flexing so much that it causes chafing, irritation, or a trampoline effect. In the case of a saddle, a fine line exists between too little flex and too much, and Fizik admirably finds the balance with the Gobi M5 VS K:ium.

The hardworking shell receives protection from the elements in the form of a combination of cover materials, including Microtex, anthracite, and Cordura nylon, all of which resist wear during exposure to the elements. A set of K:ium titanium alloy rails dutifully supports the shell and cover, using an impressive strength-to-weight ratio and inherent resistance to corrosion to stand up to miles of eventful all-mountain riding.

Great saddle for long rides/racing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this for my CX bike. I prefer saddles with a center channel cutout but this saddle has approached that concept with a shallow indentation which actually works out better for mt. biking and cyclocross, i.e. no mud can fly up into your "nether regions". It is light, comfortable and high quality. My new go to saddle for sure!


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have tried a lot of seats over the years, I had been riding a Tundra and loved it, but the Gobi VS is amazing. The relief channel really does a good job of keeping my underside from going numb or hurting. i ride about 100 miles a week on my Cross Country bike and this seat has made a huge difference.
