The Vesta K:ium Women's Saddle shares the same carbon reinforced nylon WingFlex shell as the Fizik Vitesse saddle. The Vitesse is a perennial favorite amongst women cyclists. The WingFlex is a popular feature on much of the Fizik line because it allows your legs and rear end to customize the saddle shape just by sitting on it and riding.
The difference between the Vesta and the Vitesse is that the Vesta has more and differently-defined padding. The increased padding makes the rear platform of the Vesta slightly wider than the Vitesse, with a channel down the middle of the saddle for pressure relief. The nose is also a bit more thickly padded. The padding is fairly dense and won't crush or crumple after several seasons of riding.
K:ium is Fizik's rail material of choice on the Vesta. These K:ium saddle rails offer an 8% weight reduction in comparison to Ti rails, and thanks to their use of Silicon and Chromium, they have better vibration-absorption and corrosion resistance qualities. And they're just as strong as Ti.
The Fizik Vesta K:ium Women's Saddle is available in Black or White. As with all their saddles, Fizik uses Microtex for the covering material here. It is synthetic leather that is stronger, lasts longer, and doesn't fade like genuine leather. The rear corners have matte Chrome scuff guards. The Fizik Vesta K:ium Saddle measures 270mm long by 150mm wide.
