Longer than normal, they provide a 12% larger seating area overall. These designs offer a greater variety of seating positions for different riding situations and better pressure distribution. The flexible WingFlex edges of the base enable the rider to sit further back in the saddle without being forced forward by pedalling motion acting on the sides. TWINFLEX: TwinFlex patented carbon bases have an outer frame with rigid multi-directional fibres surrounding a thinner bi-directional 'hammock'. This flexible central area provides the excellent blend of comfort and support. BRAIDED CARBON RAIL: An ultra-light 3D carbon mesh that is stronger than a titanium rail or the usual 2D mesh carbon rails. Special 'anti slip' wrapping reduces torque required on the seatbolt. About the Fizik brand The Fi'zi:k brand was born in 1996 - a high-end bicycle saddle line, designed and handmade in Italy by the world's largest saddle manufacturer. Fi'zi:k is the phonetic spelling of the word "physique" - referring to the form or state of the human body. Fizik have three saddle shapes; there is the dipped platform found on the Gobi and Aliante range. The second is their flat style found on the Arione and Pave range. The third is the new Antares which sits between the previous two shapes. Dipped platform saddles give a supported riding position and 'cup' the pelvic bone, these are ideal for riders who tend to remain in one position on the saddle. Flat saddles allow the rider to move forward and backwards on the saddle and are ideal for distance riders on varying terrain. The Antares range bridges the gap between dipped and flat saddles, offering 300% more padding and a 15% larger sitting area when compared to their competitors saddles. Whilst still maintaining a low weight from as little as 145g, there has been no sacrifice to construction or rider comfort. For 2009 Carlos Sastre, of Cervelo Test Team and 2008 Tour De France champion, has made this his saddle of choice. Fizik produce saddles in varying lengths to suit riders needs, Arione are longer in length at over 300mm with an increased nose length. The Pave, Antares and Aliante ranges are a more traditional length at under 290mm. Triathletes, Time Trialists and women are specifically catered for with the Vitesse range. Within this range there is the Tri/TT specific range which incorporates increased padding in the nose of the saddle for extended periods on the tri-bars and the Ladies Life Vitesse which is specifically shaped for the female form.
