The 00 is the lightest ever version of Fizik’s made-for-mountain biking, multi-award-winning Gobi model. At 149g it shaves 50g off the carbon-railed Gobi XM, 80g off the Kium-railed Gobi XM and 106g off the steel-railed version.
Fizik claim this crash diet hasn’t detracted from the comfort of the saddle but we feel the carbon hull is stiffer than the other models and less inclined to ﬂex in rough conditions, making you rely on the padding for comfort. We think the non-carbon hull, carbon-railed XM version is more comfortable at the expense of 50g.
