Versus X took the pressure relief chancel concept of fi'zi:k's successful Versus saddles and expanded it further with a channel design that has a smoother, more ergonomically-shaped profile that improves comfort and relieves the sensation of pressure.
Versus X feature a channel width up to 30mm and depth up to 20mm for optimum pressure relief.
NEW for 2016 – the foam compound is softer and the edges of the channel are more rounded.
The Arione VS X Braided's carbon braided rail reduces weight and increases saddle stiffness.
Arione VS X is for The Snake: Flexible Spine.
If you are very spinally flexible (far less than 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders' width apart), you are a Snake. You achieve the performance position using your spinal flexibility alone, not rotating your pelvis at all.
You will like the flat, narrow and long shape of the Arione.
Provided this saddle's width isn't too narrow for them, some women may find this model comfortable due to the presence of the relief channel.
