The Fizik Monte saddle is made for Enduro: the kind of mountain bike racing that demands you're both aggressive on the downhill but comfortable and relaxed on the uphill. The Monte combines the dynamics of hard lines and soft edges to perfectly balance climbing performance and descending positioning in a race-ready saddle.
Both the Manganese and K:IUM saddles feature a strong, light composite, carbon, co-injected Nylon shell with Extended TailFlex technology – an enhancement of Fi’zi:k’s proven Tailflex technology. This provides a larger flexible support section at the rear of the saddle which is vital for the mountain bike rider in search of optimum balance and positioning for control and power delivery. Also, the pressure relief channel relieves discomfort from the perineum to provide more comfort on longer rides.
What is K:IUM
K:ium is a Fizik proprietary rail formulation. It's the combination of a particular metal alloy, a specific tubular design and a special finishing process which increases fatigue performance on the rail surface. Fact: 8% weight reduction compared to solid titanium. k:ium features a high strenght-to-weight ratio grade and high corrosion resistance.
