Rail Material: Kium Alloy
Weight: 205 g.
The Fizik Arione R5 saddle features Wing Flex technology. Wing Flex allow for targeted areas to flex as you pedal, while others remain stiff. The result is a very comfortable riding saddle that doesn't sacrifice power transfer. The outer shell is nylon carbon reinforced with a black Microtex cover. The Kium rails are made with a special alloy with a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent vibration damping (8% weight reduction compared to solid titanium). Arione R5 is for The Snake: Flexible Spine. If you are very spinally flexible (far less than 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders' width apart), you are a Snake. You achieve the performance position using your spinal flexibility alone, not rotating your pelvis at all. You will like the flat, narrow and long shape of the Arione. ICS compatible.
