Walk around the paddock before any WorldTour race and you won’t have to go far before you spot a Fizik saddle. And another. And another. The Italian brand’s saddles are a popular choice of perch among the pros and, while one man’s throne will be another’s bed of thorns, when so many riders opt for the same brand, it tells you a lot about their quality.
Sir Bradley Wiggins, Nairo Quintana, Mark Cavendish, Chris Froome, Cadel Evans, Vincenzo Nibali… the list of pros to have planted their behinds on a Fizik saddle equates to an illustrious clientele. And it’s worth noting not all of those did so while riding for a Fizik-sponsored team.
