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.
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
