Fizik unveiled a new lineup of saddles, the 2012 Kurve Saddle Range. Aside from the three unique Kurve line models namely Kurve Bull, Kurve Chameleon and Kurve Snake, a completely new rail design called Mobius is also introduced.

Bull, Chameleon and Snake saddles provide a dynamic interface, involving an entirely new base construction called Re:Flex with a unique layering that makes the shell greatly flexible. A circular rail pattern included in the Mobius unique design lessens pressure points.

Cycling comfort is enhanced by the Wing Flex design that reduces thigh contact on the saddle and improves power transfer. Weighing in at 220g, all of the 2012 Fizik Kurve Saddle models are designed with a subtle branding and animal silhouette detailing on the pad surface in a black color scheme.

A great choice for riders who prefer flatter saddles is the 2011 Fizik Antares Versus K:ium Saddle. For enhanced comfort, this saddle allows the rider to shift around on the saddle more with ease on long climbs without compromising the performance.

Along with the thicker foam, the saddle is specially shaped to offer more padding. On long rides, riders will feel more comfortable as the sit bones are kept from getting tender. Featuring enhanced airflow and pressure relief for the rider’s soft tissue, a channel runs the length of the saddle top.

Unlike most saddles the 2011 Fizik Antares Versus K:ium Saddle features a 45mm nose width. Being a bit wider, this saddle offers more comfort in the drops. The saddle also has a carbon-reinforced nylon shell that flexes smoothly across the part between the front and back ends where the rails prop up the shell.
