A proven design with even lighter materials.
The R3 is a new top shelf offering in the Arione family, falling just behind the lightweight R1 model. The R3 boasts a new fiberglass shell that's not only light and flexible, but also more affordable than the full carbon base used on the R1 model. Redesigned Wing-Flex sections allow the saddle to move at key areas, particularly the thigh contact points.
Despite this obvious flexibility, the carbon composite material still provides stiffness and support where it's needed most for long-term comfort and pedaling efficiency. Relieved side areas eliminate chafing, and the long, narrow profile offers ample support in a variety of riding positions.
Above the shell Fi:zik uses a new high durometer foam composite for cushioning and support. The material offers more rebound compared to their previous padding, extending the saddle's service life.Below, the K:ium rails remain unchanged, offering an outstanding combination of weight savings and strength, at a more affordable price.
The Arione R3 Composite K:ium Saddle is available with a White Stripe/Black Wings or Black Stripe/White Wings. 85mm rail adjustability. 300mm Long x 132mm Wide. 185 grams.
