Fizik Arione CX - Black and Yellow - as good as I hear?

Postby Daniel B » Mon Feb 04, 2013 09:59 am

I quite fancy one of these: Image

And found one on a non uk website for £100 delivered.

Has anyone seen any better deals out there?

And are these saddles as good as I hear?

It would be for weekend rides rather than commuting.

Cheers

I have an Arione Wingflex on my Sunday best and it is very comfortable. But my ar$e is different to yours so you might find it more of a torture instrument.

Cheers Ben, and true enough - the saddle on my Felt came off an F2 I think it was, which is not dissimilar in shape to the Arione, so I am hopeful, and it's all a gamble of course, but at £100 delivered, when the cheapest I can see here is £135 (and not many places have the black and yellow in stock to my eye) it should be easy enough to shift on the bay of e.
