Length does matter.
The Arione is the only rival out there for the
Fizik Aliante in terms of popularity. Why? The key is the Arione's Wing
Flex technology, allowing the saddle to flex in key areas to yield a
virtually custom fit without sacrificing the critical shell rigidity and
support you need for optimal power transfer and comfort. Combine Wing
Flex technology with the fact that it's slightly narrower and longer
than the Aliante, your rear will feel fantastic and you won't give up
one whit of style to get there.
You might have noticed that the
Arione is no longer produced with Titanium rails. The cost of Ti has
gone through the roof, and Fizik was keen to keep the price of the
standard Arione in check. In place of Ti is a new rail material Fizik
calls k:ium. According to Fizik, k:ium offers an 8% weight reduction in
comparison to Ti rails, and thanks to its use of Silicium and Chrome, it
has better vibration-absorption qualities and more corrosion
The Arione is available in a wide variety of color
options, and it's 100% compatible with Fizik's ICS taillights and saddle
bags. They literally snap into the rear of the saddle -- say farewell
to hook-and-loop straps and awkward clamps!
