New Kurve Saddles from Fizik Adjustable Firmness, Full Carbon Arione Donna

20110728-113058.jpg

Fizik’s new Kurve saddles use a very lightly padded cover over a “thermoplastic composite” carbon textile base on their Mobius alloy rail.

The shell flexes to provide virtual padding, so the initial appearance is that they’re more rounded than the matching non-Kurve version.

They also have a replaceable clip at the front that attaches the railing to the base. Swap between Soft or Firm chips to further adjust the feel. They offer Snake, Chameleon and Bull shapes, which pretty much match up with their Arione, Antares and Aliante shapes respectively, all shown after the break.

MSRP is $270 and they should be available late this year, possibly early next.

Also in the pipeline with no specific release date is the new women’s version of the Arione 00 Donna, their full carbon railed and shelled saddle:

I hope these kurve saddles don’t wear out as quick as their regular saddles. My Antares 00 shell is worn out and way too flexy after only 6 months of use

Agreed, Fizik saddles wear way too soon. Just ordered a San Marco to replace my saggy Antares circa Nov. 2009, and I use two bikes so its not an use all the time either.
