The Draw: No-Slip Satisfaction
The Fizik Mistica saddle is designed to be short and stout with a deep pressure relief groove. The saddle surface features a very grippy textured rubber, which is meant to hold a slippery rider in place, and it does a very good job at that. The grippy surface is also important, as there is actually a relatively small area to rest your pelvis upon. If you are the kind of rider who shuffles on a saddle, this saddle is probably not your best option. For those who want a saddle that can be used to fine tune your position and lock you into it, this is it.
