Fizik Targets Endurance Cyclists with Revamped Tempo Aliante Saddle

Fizik has revamped its longest-running Aliante saddle, targeting endurance cyclists with new ergonomics and improved padding.

Dubbed the Tempo Aliante, the new perch features a slightly longer length of 277mm in widths of either 142mm or 155mm, while an extended cut-out reaches further towards a more squared-off nose. The saddle is further punctuated by the Italian brand’s WingFlex technology, which allows for the front and rear edges of the saddle to “move with the rider’s thighs” when pedaling.

“The new generation of Aliante take advantage of all the recent innovation fizik has applied to its new saddles. From the importance of diversifying areas of comfort, to the collaboration with physios and bike fitters, bringing ergonomics to a new level“, describes product manager Alex Locatelli.

Additionally, the Tempo Aliante is offered in three guises, the R1, R3 and R5, which all feature the same carbon reinforced nylon shell, but are differentiated by the type of rails.

The top-tier Tempo Aliante R1 ($225) features full 7x9mm carbon rails, which tips the scales at 180g for the 142mm version, and 186g for the 155mm variant.

The mid-level Tempo Aliante R3 ($150) is fitted with 7mm round Kium tubular ti alloy rails that weighs in at 220/226g depending on width, while the Tempo Aliante R5 I($130) is treated to the same durable synthetic cover, albeit with slightly heavier S-Alloy rails for claimed weights of 230/236g.
