An extremely comfortable saddle, the R5 features Fizik's Twin Flex technology, k:ium rails and the ICS system allowing saddlebags to be clipped to it. Light, stiff and comfortable it's a great choice for low/high mileage rides.
The Aliante is 1 of Fizik's 3 Spine Concept™ Men’s Road Saddle shapes. Of these 3, the Aliante shape is the widest and most longitudinally waved. Fi’zi:k launched the first Aliante in 1999. During the intervening fifteen years, it has become one of the most loved and favoured saddles in the world, by both pros and enthusiasts alike
If you have a relatively low degree of spinal flexibility (more than 90 degrees between your straight legs and back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders’ width apart), you are a Bull. Your degree of Spinal flexibility will top out quite quickly when attempting to adopt the performance position. For this reason, you will rotate you pelvis fully.
This Aliante R5 saddle is at the lower end of the Aliante R series yet still has the same dimensions as the R3 and R1. The difference being the shell composition which is heavier than the R3 and R1.
Integrated Clip System
The Integrated Clip System (ICS) is an integrated interface in the saddle's base to allow quick attachment and removal of ICS accessories such as the Fi'zi:k saddle Pa:k and Blin:k light. It is a clean, easy, fast and secure attachment that does not require any tools.
K:IUM is a fi'zi:k proprietary rail formulation. It's the combination of a particular metal alloy, a specific tubular design and a special finishing process which increases fatigue performance on the rail surface. Fact: 8% weight reduction compared to solid titanium. K:IUM features a high strength-to-weight ratio grade and high corrosion resistance.
