- Very comfortable saddle
- Cool looking
- Good shock absorption
- Synthetic cover is thin
After reading the bad of the Fizik Aliante Gamma Twin Flex Bike Saddle, you might think it's worth the price, even though that cover is a little fragile. And you'd be right. The Fizik Aliante is one of the most comfortable bike saddles you'll ever set a tushy on.
When you buy it,You will notice that you won't be able to change positions. Even if you manage to do that, you will slide back into place when riding your bike. But the good news is that with the Fizik Aliante, you only need one position. And you won't have to stop every mile to get that blood flowing.
I really wish the synthetic cover was a little thicker, especially for the price. But as long as you don't lean your bike against rough walls, it won't get damaged. This is the only thing that kept the Fizik Aliante saddle from getting a perfect score. I didn't count the price as a bad thing: with the Fizik Aliante, you get what you pay for.
