With full-channel comfort and advanced technology, materials and craft, Arione R1 Versus Evo is a leading performance road saddle for riders who want a flat saddle profile and a pressure relief channel.

Made for Snake riders with high body flexibility and no pelvic rotation while pedaling, the Arione is longer than any other Fi'zi:k road saddle, flat from nose to tail and with a narrow nose, so you can move around to find your power spot.

Arione R1 Versus Evo features a composite Carbon-reinforced nylon shell – with Wing Flex technology which enables flexibility where your thighs meet the saddle – and a light, strong, Braided Carbon rail. A Comfort Core foam layer beneath the neat, durable Microtex cover provides comfort, and is enhanced by the full-length comfort channel which reduces pressure on the rider’s sensitive soft tissue and ensures that all weight is correctly supported across the whole surface of the saddle.

Does exactly what I bought it for
by JonJ

Replaced an Arione R3 with this saddle. Liked the R3, but I would find myself on one side of the saddle to take pressure off the pineal. Replaced with the R1 Versus, a thinner saddle with the center cutout. Could have probably gone with R3 Versus, but this one fits me well AND I know have no issues with the carbon wrapped seat rails and seat post chewing on my bib shorts. The channel is well done - I do not even consciously or otherwise notice it, just that I now comfortably sit in straight in the saddle. I can ride seated forever and have no issues with numbness, and the thin saddle is so easy to get up from and then sit back on after climbing. Will see how durable it is, but have put several hundred miles on it and looks brand new as you would expect.

I've been a Fizik Arione user for over 10 years and needed to replace an older model. I'm running this on my road bike and very please with the weight. It maintains all the same benefits of older models with rider position and movement, comfort and now has an added feature for pressure relief in that sensitive area.

If you ride the original Arione, you will love the extra comfort. Much more flexible than the original, padding and cut out work well with that.

Good Saddle, still sore
by stutz
Columbus, OH

Was in search of finding a good saddle to relieve some pain on my sit bones. Disappointed this didnt fix my issue but I cant fault the saddle when its my problem to deal with. This is a light weight option, has very thin padding and will likely keep it on my road bike until I cant stand it any longer.

Not the same fit as older Arione
by Rees

Not the same profile as previous Arione have owned. Returned this saddle because it did not support my sit bones correctly , also, the tail of the saddle rises slightly making it difficult to use. . Very high quality but
