General Specifications
About the Product
Aliante Gamma: retains the shape of first Aliante saddle, with increased curvature and a central sweet spot compared to the 'new' Aliante, but maintaining the overall length and the Aliante’s characteristic extra width.
The fizik aliante versus x kium saddle 2016 is a model designed by professionals to offer you the maximum comfort and lightness. It uses quality materials and a design that incorporates an area of pressure relief, which extends the entire length of the saddle, allowing the rider to enjoy freedom of movement at all times. The edge of the pressure relief channel represents a gradual change in molding foam that does not leave any sharp edge that can cause pressure points.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Fizik Aliante Gamma K:ium Rails Road Bicycle Saddle with Team Logos
  • As with all saddles you need to get out of it every once in a while, but there is no discomfort. I put 45 miles on it the first day and no numb bits and my sit bones weren't sore after the ride.
  • This saddle has a well deserved reputation for comfort and durability, so it’s certainly worth a try if you’re shopping for a new saddle.
  • This Fizik seat is comfortable the whole ride now, I love it!
  • The contour shape seems to work very well for me and I since I started riding on this saddle, I don't believe I will ever need to switch or try another saddle for a long time.
  • From long 4+ hour rides to short hard rides, this saddle is as comfortable as it will get for me.
Fizik Aliante VS X Kium Saddle 2016 by Fizik
  • This seat met my expectations and has helped me enjoy my riding much more.
  • Sure, this seat is much less squishy than my last one, but it really is true that pillowy softness does not equal comfortable when it comes to bike seats.
  • Very comfortable. I love it and will buy another for my other bike
  • I've been hunting for the perfect saddle for the better part of 10 years and with this Aliante I've finally found it.
  • The saddle is firm and plush at the same time. Firm in that I get a solid connection to the bike through it.

What customers say about "Features"
Fizik Aliante Gamma K:ium Rails Road Bicycle Saddle with Team Logos
  • I'm a big heavy guy and this is very important to me. I'm now riding 20-30 miles at a stretch without feeling like I'm being impaled.
  • Very comfortable, for long rides that are over 50 miles.
  • I needed a saddle that dispersed my weight and didn't have the big gap down the middle. I highly recommend this saddle!
  • I've used several Fizik Aliantes over the years. The design fits my posterior and the quality is very good.
  • The black/white color scheme is pretty lame, and white on a bike saddle is just plain dumb, as it becomes dirty white pretty quickly.
Fizik Aliante VS X Kium Saddle 2016 by Fizik
  • Looks great on the bike, slim and sexy and the carbon under is cool too.
  • My first ride on this baby and I literally forgot about it, no pain, no tingles, no nothing.
  • So far so good. Feels and looks great!
  • Great saddle! Great graphics and quality!
  • If you want a relief channel saddle, try a more shallow channel first.
