Arione Saddle

There’s not much we could say about the Fizik Arione that hasn’t already been said. What speaks louder, though, is a quick look at the bike storage racks in the office –if it has drop bars, it almost certainly has an Arione on it. The secret is Fizik’s Wing Flex technology, which allows the saddle edges to flex as you pedal. This translates to a more natural pedal stroke and less fatigue on long rides.

  • Slightly longer and narrower than the Aliante
  • Wing Flex technology
  • Microtex cover

not for me, but good quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I rode this saddle for about a year before I finally decided it wasn't right for me. Despite this, the quality is spot-on and the aesthetics are clean. I did like that this saddle affords many positions to sit in (sliding forward on climbs, etc.).

A standard

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I switched to this saddle about 2 years ago and I am sold for life. I was switching saddles almost once a year before I found the Arione. As soon as I put it on my bike and went for a ride I knew it was a perfect fit. There was no breaking it in or getting used to it. It was perfect from the beginning. Even feels great on a century. I also love the Fizik saddle bag that attaches to the back of the saddle.

Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is slightly heavier than comparable saddles. However, you can upgrade to the Arione with carbon braided rails to save on weight.

A classic

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

There isn't a lot to say, but if the saddle fits, wear it! First rode a friend's Arionne years ago when they first came out. Comfy from the get go, and plenty long to change positions depending on terrain, pace, etc... Tough to go wrong if it suits your anatomy, and even better that it's not necessary to blow the budget.

My Favorite Saddle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just the right combination of size shape padding, plus wingflex.

Nothing like it.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Arione is, by far, the most comfortable road saddle I have ridden in about 10 years of riding. I have tried a slew of Specialized saddles but none have compared to the Arione. If you need a saddle to get you through those 3+ hour rides, look no further. Now they just need to make a gold one...

Go Black/Black Suede Stripe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The black suede stripe totally adds just enough grip to keep me from sliding around. My previous saddle was white and the bike seat never stayed stark white.



Some seats address comfort by adding a butt load (see what I did there?) of padding, but in my opinion that strategy only gets you a bouncy ride and a sore butt. This saddle bends and flexes at all the right spots so less bulky padding is needed to make an extremely comfortable ride.



True to other reviews, this is a long saddle. For me, I found it to be advantageous!

Flite (90') vs Arione or Arione Cx

    I have problems with flite, because that saddle does not allow you much positions changes, so because of friction by high cadance, and lots of pressure on soft area, my bibshort also sport short are worn out, I'm flexible but I am not sure that I should buy arione. What is your advice that which kind of fizik saddle I should buy?

    In addition, can you tell me what are the certain differences between arione and arione cx by all edges?

    I have had Arione for years now and only have had the "basic" Arione Ppros 225gm. I bought a bike that came with the Antares, no luck, I tried the Arione EVO, too hard, I also tried the newer arione with the cutout, no flexibility. I now have gone back to the basic Arione and am quite happy with that model ( I am 5'-9" and about 155 lbs. Start with that one is my advice

      little longer than other saddles

        little longer than other saddles

        Comfy.

          Nice saddle, comfy for me but saddles are a very personal thing.

          Weight is actually 248Grams, so I reduced to 4 stars for this fact.

          I am a Believer

            I had an average saddle that came with my bike when I bought it. I decided it was time for an upgrade and I am so glad I did. I tried this saddle out because I took the "Fizik Test" online, (for those who don't know Fizik's website has a test to see what saddle fits you best.) This saddle is great. I used no chamois cream and was able to ride 75+ with no soreness. Great design and feels great.

            My favorite saddle

              Saddle comfort is a personal thing and for me the Arione is great. It a long saddle and super comfortable. I've used it on double century rides and recommend it highly.

              great for long rides

                Used this on my first double and without cream I didn't start hurting till around mile 165. All saddles are made for different behinds but this one is well constructed and offers compatibility with the Fi'zi:k clip saddle bags.

                Super good Fizik saddle info:
