2014 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Saddles

Fizik Tritone Kium

$200, Fizik.it
The draw: Pressure relief  in the aero position

Fizik has created its first true tri-specific saddle. The deep pressure relief groove at the tip of the truncated nose makes it feel similar to other noseless saddles in the aero position. Both male and female testers found this saddle comfortable, but some said the nose was a bit too short. Be sure to set this saddle up level (or close to it) to minimize slipping. Its integrated water bottle mounting system is an effective way to carry hydration and other essentials.
