FI’ZI:K ALIANTE TEAM EDITION 2015 SADDLES

 
What is Aliante?
fi’zi:k’s Aliante saddle is one of the world’s most popular and best-loved saddles. Its blend of great comfort, support, power transfer and comfort helps push riders along faster – and further – whether you’re a professional or an enthusiast.
 
It’s been a favorite for the last 16 years. That’s why it’s one of the saddles chosen by so many World Tour teams and professional riders.
 
For 2015, the familiar shape is refined and improved with new technology and materials to create our best ever, lightest ever Aliante. 
 
Why Team Edition?
The Aliante is now available in the team colors of these fi’zi:k-supplied pro teams: AG2R La Mondial, BMC Racing Team, Cannondale-Garmin, FDJ, Movistar, Orica - GreenEDGE & Team Sky.

 

As well as the Microtex cover being in perfect team livery, each Team Edition Aliante comes with 3 pairs of easily detachable reinforced scuff guards. So within your favorite team’s colorways you can personalize your saddle further with up to 9 color combinations. With 9 color combinations on each of the 7 team saddles, that’s a total of 63 different possible combinations!
 
Design and technologies
The Team Edition Aliante is based on fi’zi:k’s R3 k:ium model, with composite fiberglass-nylon shell and light, strong k:ium alloy rails.
 
Like all Aliante saddles, the Team Edition Aliante is most suited to ‘Bull’ riders, as defined by fi’zi:k’s Spine Concept, and features a supportive rounded tail and slimmer nose. Its shell is created using Twin Flex technology and thermo-welding techniques and a Microtex cover with reinforced, colored scuff guards.
