Likely spurred on by the number of customers paying a premium for their local shop’s neon green Fizik test ride saddles, Fizik has launched the eye searing Highlighter Collection. More than just green however, the brightly colored saddles will now be offered in fluorescent pink, orange, and yellow as well. All saddles are available now, and are offered in road models with the Arion, Antares, and Aliante Versus saddles as well as the Gobi XM k:ium MTB saddle and women’s specific Vesta. The Highlighter collection is one that you can actually buy in a store, unlike the custom red saddles they were auctioning off at NAHBS.
Break out the highlighters to mark your favorites.
For now, it seems if you want a Highlighter edition road saddle, your only choices are going to be one of the Versus collection – Fizik’s comfort relief channel version of their popular road saddles. Road Highlighters are offered in the Arione, Antares, and Aliante saddles all with k:ium rails and a nylon carbon reinforced shell. The Antares is the lightest of the bunch at 209g, followed by the Arione and the Aliante, at 239g, and 259g each.
Not to be left out, mountain bikers and women looking for a women’s specific saddle get their own Highlighter versions in the Gobi and Vesta. Both saddles are again equipped with Fizik’s K:ium rails, and the nylon carbon reinforced shells, and are similar in weight at 229g and 259g respectively. Sorry guys, pink is reserved for the ladies only.
