The Fizik Aliante VS Kium saddle is for Bulls, not my words, Fizik’s. The Italian company names its saddle ranges after creatures renowned for varying degrees of flexibility, so we have the aforementioned Bull, the Chameleon and the Snake. So, if like me, you have a more limited range of flexibility in your spine and can’t remember the last time you could touch your toes – Fizik say you are like a bull and this is the saddle for you.
