With an anatomic cut-out shape and advanced technology, materials and craft, The Fizik Arione R3 Open is a performance road saddle for riders who want a flat saddle profile and a cut-out to avoid pressure and numbness.

Featuring a composite carbon-reinforced nylon shell and a light, strong, corrosion-resistant K:ium rail, the Arione R3 Open shaves weight without affecting durability. A Comfort Core foam layer beneath the neat, durable Microtex cover provides comfort, which is enhanced by the full anatomic cut-out that avoids pressure on the rider�s sensitive soft tissue and ensures that all weight is correctly supported across the whole surface of the saddle.

Made for Snake riders with high body flexibility and no pelvic rotation while pedaling, the Arione is longer than any other Fi�zi:k road saddle. It's flat from nose to tail and with a narrow nose, ensuring that you can move around to find your power spot.

Fizik R3

So far so good. Basically just needed a seat to replace my original 'creeky' seat and didn't quite realize all the options.

I did the at home test to measure my sit bones. Fizik also offers a pretty neat way to narrow down what you need with their online calculator. Seems better than my factory seat and I did notice I am not going dumb like I previously did. Pretty stoked considering i did the research myself and didn't go through a seat fitting at a dealer. Also Bike Tires Direct had an awesome deal on the seat.

Mostly Satisfied Clydesdale Rider

I actually bought this saddle for a friend who's a heavier cyclist (about 250 lbs) but happens to be very flexible. He stated that that he while he liked the seat overall, he wishes the relief channel was a bit wider. It replaced an Aliante Open saddle that came with his bike.

A Welcome Improvement over the Versus X Model

This is my fourth model Fizik Arione saddle. The original and Versus worked great but the Versus X for me had too wide a center channel with too little contact surface area upon which to comfortably sit. The result of prolonged sitting on the Versus X caused irritation (hot spots) in the reduced contact areas. The R3 Open eliminated this issue by having a smaller pressure relief center channel, and I opted for the Large size (142 mm compared to 130 for the standard Arione). These two changes solved the comfort issues and eliminated the hot spots.
