Fizik 2015 Team Sky Aliante R3 K:ium Saddle
Perfect for fans of the Team Sky professional team -- or anyone who has a soft spot for their black/light blue/white color aesthetic -- the Fizik 2015 Team Sky Aliante R3 K:ium Saddle strikes an optimal balance between comfort and weight. Italy's Fizik introduced the first Aliante in 1999 and in the subsequent years it has become one of the most loved and preferred saddles by professional cyclists and enthusiasts alike. 2014 marked a milestone in the evolution of the Aliante with the launch of an all-new, sleek profile. It's built off the 'Bull' family of Fizik's Spine Concept system, so it's designed around cyclists who are less flexible and therefore need more cushion for soft tissue areas as they roll forward on the saddle. The K:ium rails are constructed of an alloy lighter than titanium, and they're plenty stiff so they won't deform under power. And as an added, team edition bonus, this particular version of the Aliante features three sets of scuff guards -- one black, one light blue, and one white -- so you can mix and match to your heart's content in the Team Sky color scheme.
  • Composite glass co-injected nylon shell provides support with optimized stiffness to-weight construction
  • Microtex cover is durable and weather resistant
  • K:ium rails provide high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent vibration damping
  • Ergonomic dip platform and rolled edges are designed for riders with less flexibility
  • Includes three sets of scuff guards in Team Sky colors (black, light blue, white) that makes the saddle easy to customize
  • Weight: 220 grams

Comments about Fizik Fi'zi:k 2015 Team Sky Aliante R3 K:ium Saddle:

My Fizik Aliante Gamma saddle was getting a bit worn after five years of use, so I decided to try the newer version, the Fizik Aliante R3.
The good news is that the R3 is lighter (by about an ounce), sleeker, and has a lower profile, it's a really good looking saddle.
Unfortunately it also has much thinner and firmer padding, I felt every rut and bump in the road, which the older version seemed to soak up much better.
After a 50 mile tryout I decided to return it and stick with the Aliante Gamma.
There's nothing wrong with the R3, Fizik makes excellent saddles, but, for me, it just couldn't match the comfort of the older design Gamma.
Fizik apparently still offers the Aliante Gamma model, so I'll order that instead.
