Fi'zi:k Kurve Bull Saddle - 7x9 Aluminum Mobius Rails

The Kurve for a little less.

Fizik’s Kurve series of saddles is designed to maximize comfort while minimizing padding. Fizik know that padding can degrade over time, leading to a saddle that’s not nearly as supportive as it once was. By using a single, continuous rail that runs around the perimeter of the saddle, the Kurve saddles provide support in much the same manner as a hammock –you’re effectively suspended between the rails.

This particular Kurve sadde is designed for Bulls, according to Fizik’s Spine Concept. Bulls are riders with a bit less spinal flexibility, who are more likely to tilt their pelvis forward on the bike, and thus need a bit deeper ‘pocket’ in the saddle for comfort. This saddle also makes use of ovalized, 7x9mm aluminum rails, meaning it will only be compatible with seatposts designed for ovalized rails.

My new favorite saddle!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been riding a Fizik Aliante gamma for some time and recently purchased the equivalent Kurve model, the Bull. First, it has oval rails so make sure your seatpost can accomodate before buying. I was skeptical of a saddle with no padding-relying on the stretch between the unique rail structure for support and cushioning-but it works. I only have a few hundred miles on it so far in 35-50 mile increments but it is looking like a keeper! I'm not quite sure why this saddle has to be $100 more than regular Aliante-I;m sure that you would see more of them if not for the steep price. Be aware that due to unique shape of rails at back of saddle, a lot of saddle bags will not work (ex. Topeak DX systems don't work)

How is this different than the previous gen Kurve saddle? The geometry and weight seem identical.
