Aliante 00 Versus Evo Saddle

An informal survey here at the Competitive office finds the Fi'zi:k Aliante saddle as one of the favorite platforms. Those looking for a little more pressure relief without resorting to a full cutout and seek its lightest weight chassis will gravitate to its Aliante 00 Versus Evo Saddle. Coming in at a claimed weight of almost 26g lighter than the Aliante R1 Versus Evo, this is the one to have if you seek comfort and chase grams. The saddle's stiff, high modulus full carbon shell and Mobius carbon rails ensure no watts are wasted, yet offers a comfortable ride over bumpy roads.

The saddle's body uses its Versus Evo construction, which provides the benefit of a pressure relieving center channel for the soft tissue, keeping you pedaling comfortably for hours at a time, while the full carbon shell is tuned for maximum power transfer. Two sizes cater specifically to your body stature and power output on the road. Since it's shell is made entirely from carbon, the 00's Versus Evo saves some weight over the R1, which features carbon injected nylon.

In Fi'zi:k's Spine Concept estimation of cyclists-as-animals, the Aliante is designed for bulls. Bulls have a relatively rigid spine and tend to rotate their pelvises forward when they ride, an adjustment that requires a saddle with a larger, deeper pocket. That said, this saddle shape has gained a versatile following, and we know many cyclists who can touch their foreheads to their knees while stretching but still prefer the Aliante.

The 00 also saves weight by using rails made in a Mobius carbon fiber closed loop design instead of the typical Kium alloy. The rails deliver better weight distribution and eliminate pressure hotspots on the ischial bones. The whole thing is capped off with a cover that's applied over the padding with a vacuum process that enables for a more progressive cushioning, while the surface texture provides additional grip for a more secure interface with the bib shorts.

    Very comfortable

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this as part of a bike. Had previously been using an older version of the Alliante. This also does not disappoint. Used for 4,000 miles so far.

    Is it still tolerable on those 4 hour rides?

    >Rating:

    I understand that Fizik saddles are sold using a fit guarantee program. Does CC participate in this program? I've ridden several Antares 00s for years, but I need a new shape plus pressure relief. I'd like to be able to try the Aliante EVO 00 without getting stuck with an expensive thing if it doesn't fit.

    Hi Steven! If you purchase the saddle through us, we offer our return policy, which allows you to return the saddle within 30 days for store credit if it doesn't work out for you. That usually gives folks enough time to work out if a saddle is the right fit for them. We handle manufacturer incentives on a case-by-case basis. Look for an email shortly with more details. Feel free to reach out to me directly at jdraper@backcountry.com if you have any questions!
