Headed for the bikes of seven different teams at this year’s Tour de France are new limited editions of three of Fizik’s top road saddles…and you shouldn’t have a hard time spotting them under camera flashes.
The special versions of the Arione R3, Antares R3 and Aliante Gamma will use reflective panels on their black Microtex covers. It’s a small safety upgrade for the rest of us (when you’re off the saddle and it’s dark out, anyway), but definitely cool. Here’s a few details from the press release:
The fi’zi:k Arione R3 and Antares R3 both use the same structure and Microtex thigh glides with reflective film as the pro version, and incorporates a k:ium rail. The 185g Arione R3 is designed for highly flexible riders and 195g Antares R3 for those with medium levels of flexibility. Both are both priced at €210. The fi’zi:k Aliante Gamma uses a carbon reinforced nylon shell to cater for less flexible riders and is available for just €169. The saddle weighs 259g and incorporates the samereflective film and Microtex cover as the pro-standard version of the saddle, again along with a k:ium rail.

The saddles come packaged in an Eiffel Tower themed box and include a level and Fizik bar tape. Available now.
