Fizik are responsible for our all-time favourite saddle, the Gobi, so we had high expectations of the Tundra.
The construction doesn’t disappoint with the titanium rails and a really immaculate ﬁnish, and in theory the design should work, with a wide, ﬂat platform and long nose to provide a balance between power, support and ease of movement.
But, in practice, it didn’t work for us. The saddle constantly moves beneath you and even the suede-effect strip can’t stop the slippage.
Overall it doesn’t make for very efﬁcient riding. But if you spend more time out of the saddle than in it and you’re prepared to splash out on a top-notch build, this could be for you.
