Lighten up, without giving up comfort.

The R1 is a new top shelf offering in the Arione family, falling just behind the ultralight 00 model. The R1 boasts a new carbon shell that's not only 14 grams lighter than last year's base, it's more flexible as well. 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 F'izi:k uses a new high durometer foam composite for cushioning and support. The material offers more rebound compared to their previous padding, increasing the saddle's durability, and ultimately extending its service life. Below, the 3D braided carbon rails remain unchanged. The 7x9mm oval shaped construction provides aggressive weight savings and comfortable vibration dampening, with all the strength of Titanium.

85mm rail adjustability. Regular sizing: 300mm Long x 13mm Wide (165 grams); Large sizing: 300mm Long x 142mm Wide (175 grams).

Great for those who it fits

Saddles are hard to review based on how person-specific they are. So I'll keep this to technical details. Weight was a little higher (165g) than the claimed 145g. Twenty grams may not be much, but if you're buying a carbon saddle, you're thinking about weight. Construction looks to be solid. I've only got about 1k miles on the saddle, which isn't much, however I've had no problems so far. Stitching and gluing is holding still and doesn't look too be moving. The carbon rails look and feel solid. I didn't have any issue mounting them on my Trek Emonda. Tightened to the speced torque on the saddle instructions, which was less than the seat mast, but is holding fine. I've been riding fiziks for probably 10 years now, and will likely continue to do so. Great price at Western bike works, no complaints.

Excellent saddle

A little wider and the mountvrails a little shorter than the standard R1, necessitating a position almost all the way back possible.

But very solid and more comfortable for my 12mm separated sitz bones.

It is a pricy but I have found it worth the cost. Very comfortable and light. I have a Kurve Snake saddle and this was worth a try because it's considered a snake as well. It's light weight and fit the bill. I have no issue riding distance it just works for me I would definitely buy it again

I purchased this seat to replace the seat that came on my Trek Madone. My other bicycle has an Arione Classic saddle. I found that seat best suited my riding style. I wanted another Fizik Arione seat, but wrestled with the model. I chose the R1 and couldn't be happier.

Good value. A little different than the CX but super comfortable once you get used to it.

The CX is a little different. Not sure how but it will take getting used to if you are upgrading it won't be seamless. Once you get used to it, it will be super comfortable.
