General Specifications
About the Product
The Arione Classic retains the shape of first Arione saddle, with a slightly longer, thinner nose, wider wings and higher profile compared to the 'new' Arione, but maintaining the overall length and width dimensions.
The Arione VS X is made for the Snake position within the Spine Concept. The VS X collection is meant for those consumers looking for the greatest relief zone. A 20 mm deep channel is designed to allow for a greater pressure relief while maintaining the stiffness and durability of a solid base saddle. Spine Concept is the fi'zi:k guideline to the right saddle choice. It realizes that cyclists have varying degrees of flexibility and human flexibility affects riding behavior when cycling in a high performance position.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Fizik Arione K:ium Rails Road Bicycle Saddle
  • In general, this saddle is well-padded and decently light for what it is.
  • It was slightly padded yet firm, and it was compliant in the winged section towards the back of it.
  • Overall, it's allowing me to ride comfortably in a number of aggressive, low positions while at the same time, providing a saddle top that allows for smooth, quick seating position transitions with no complaints from down under.
  • initial impressions are good. fit and finish are very nice. so far have only ridden in circles around my basement but feels good so far.
  • If you have a problem with numb-nuts on other saddles, this one is only going to make it worse.
Fizik Arione VS X Carbon Saddle
  • I later got this saddle and instantly, it felt like night and day. I had to adjust it forward than usual, but after that, no problems.
  • I find these seat comfortable. I like the channel and the length.
  • This is one of the best saddles I've used. It is comfortable for long and short distance rides.
  • The carbon versions seem to be a bit firmer but more forgiving than the plastic versio.
  • This saddle is much stiff than any chromoly saddle I've ever ridden probably due to the carbon rails.

What customers say about "Features"
Fizik Arione K:ium Rails Road Bicycle Saddle
  • Seats are a very personal choice, but this one was immediately comfortable as soon as I sat on it.
  • It has the necessary soft cushioning down the middle for male comfort, looks sharp, and is very light weight.
  • Good saddle I have used this same style for a long time with no problems.
  • Love the look and feel completely. Great light saddle for the price.
  • Probably a little expensive for what it is. You're paying for the name, but the classic shape is hard to go wrong with.
Fizik Arione VS X Carbon Saddle
  • I live where road are pretty shotty and wanted to dampen some of these road vibarations. This saddle does just that.
  • Great saddle, Fizik saddles are always well designed and made.
  • Brilliant saddle and very comfortable. Perfect for long distance rides but also with a good bib.
  • Excellent saddle for my purpose racing training, not so comfy for slow long rides though.
  • The saddle construction is poor. Also while riding it makes a creaking noise.
