Arione R3 Open White Edition Saddle
We know The Rules dictate white bar tape if you want to look pro and also stipulates that said tape must match the saddle, so if you're looking to complete the look and you're a fan of its shape, please check out the Arione R3 Open White Edition Saddle from Fi'zi:k. Always a perennial favorite in the pro peloton, this version of the Arione receives pressure-relieving cutouts for comfort over long distance training and racing. By combining this anatomic cutout design with a classic shape in two widths, many find the Arione R3 Open Saddle as a friendly perch for 5-hour long base rides and 1-hour criteriums alike.
Even though saddle selection is highly personal, we feel like there is some takeaway from riders who rack up more miles in one season then we will in a few. Thus, the Arione R3 Open Saddle is a performance-oriented road saddle for riders who want a flat saddle profile with a cut-out to avoid pressure and numbness. If you always wanted to upgrade from your stock saddle to a more highly-tuned one, this saddle should be one to consider. It represents Fi'zi:k's sleek design and top-quality craftsmanship at a price that isn't astronomical.
