The Fizik Arione R3 offers comfort and performance for flexible riders who prefer more aggressive riding positions. Its long 300 mm length allows for plenty of movement to find the optimum position in any situation, whether on the nose for fast flat efforts or at the back when spinning up a hill. A Wingflex design provides optimized rider support while still allowing flexibility at the edges to prevent interference with the pedal stroke, and it's weatherproof and durable with a thermo-welded Microtex cover, fiberglass-reinforced nylon base, and chromoly rails.

Even pressure achieved

5 STARS!!!!

I started using this saddle on one of my bikes to try a saddle that has even contact. Since I started riding a few years back, I always had a saddle with a slot in it but still always had discomfort. I heard people talk about even contact being more efficient. So this was my first saddle trying that out. Since swapping to this I had to get another one for my criterium bike also. It just feels like the pressure is even...in other words, less pressure points. I would definitely give this a try if you've been using saddles with openings in them. You'll be surprised.

Comfortable and lightweight

The Arione allows me to move around in different positions more easily than other saddles I've used. The shape felt a little awkward at first, but I grew accustomed to it after a couple weeks and don't notice the difference anymore. I've done many rides in the 50-100 mile range on this saddle and have no complaints. I was also pleasantly surprised that the Arione's actual weight on my scale-200g-was exactly as advertised.

Good saddle except for cover designmaterial

I like this wider version of the Arione R3 (Large - 142mm width). I'd buy several more except for the dealbreaker, which is the saddle covering. Look at the saddle and you'll see a broad strip going down the middle from the nose. The problem is that it has a raised edge on the lower outside edges, and it appears to eat bike shorts prematurely. Why Fizik did this I don't know. A simple single smooth covering would've been fine. I'm actually going to try having my R3 recovered to get rid of that issue. Which I guess is an underhanded compliment to how much I like the fit of this saddle.

Well made race saddle.

My 3 stars is only because it didn't fit me. The Arione R3 is a quality saddle, and very light for one with-out using carbon rails.

I don't think Fizik's fitting guide is worth following though.

I am going to try the Antares from BTD,(good prices and quality bike stuff).

Forever Fizik

I rode with thin Italian saddles for many years and for the last 5 or 6 on an Arione VS which I think has been discontinued. In my quest for replacement I have suffered painfully as I got caught up in the cut-out and width rabbit holes. Coming full circle I decided to try the Arione R3 because it comes in a wider version. Well the padding is much too hard so I am considering the purchase of the original Arione Classic which hopefully has padding equal to the VS. I have come to the conclusion that sit bone width is overrated because with the forward lean on a road bike I don't actually sit solely on my sit bones. The quest continues. I rode approximately 4,500 miles in 2021, am 60 years old and average around 17 mph in a mountainish area.
