Find your flexibility.

Within Fizik’s Spine Concept Fit System, the Arione R5 Saddle features a “snake” profile designed for the most flexible riders. The Arione R5’s shell uses a Nylon Carbon Thermoplastic Composite and is light, stiff, and a full 300mm long. Fizik’s Wingflex technology ensures that you’re comfortable and that you’re directing all of your power into the pedals, rather than the saddle. Wingflex accomplishes this by designing the top of the saddle to be stiff and supportive while the outside is allowed to flex while you pedal. The R5’s 132mm width provides ample support for your sit bones, and the saddle is covered with a durable Microtex fabric that is gentle on your cycling shorts and durable against abrasion. The R5 saddle sits atop Fizik’s Kium rails, which are about 8% lighter than titanium rails and feature a silicone and chrome construction for maximum vibration absorption.

Broke in half

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this for my cross bike February 2016 and it broke in half on a gravel ride this past weekend. The shell under the saddle broken completely in half from one "wing-flex" area to the other side. I'm a fairly lightweight guy (145 lbs) and pretty easy on equipment.

good saddle

Ive run this saddle for a few years. Its a good saddle. No hotspots or anything like that. I find that it provides lots of options for position so you can move around a bit and rest your bits and pieces during long rides.

For the black/black saddle... is the black...

For the black/black saddle... is the black strip down the center smooth or the suede material?

Hi Kevin,

The center on the black/black is an ultra suede finish or a matte texture but very smooth.

Hi Greg, thanks for your reply. The reason I ask is because previously I had the regular arione with kium rails which had the suede center strip down the middle and I did not like the grippy texture of the suede. Was wondering if this R5 version is the same?

New Favorite Saddle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Over the years I have ridden many varieties of saddles from Fizik and many other companies as preferences and sponsorships have changed. For the first time in many years I'm in the position to choose my own saddle, and this one has blown me away. It has the same feel as the high-performance Arionne we have been familiar with for years, with just a little extra padding for added comfort during long days in the saddle. Previously I'd steer clear of saddles with padding because that is normally a recipe for trouble but this one changes that entirely. You won't be disappointed with this one.
