The Fi’zi:k Transiro Mistica is a stub-nose saddle with a pressure relief groove—as opposed to a cutout like most others. The usable nose length of this saddle is quite short, so riders who like to move fore/ aft on the saddle might want to look elsewhere. The Mistica is designed to keep the rider planted in place, and it features a high-friction, rubber-like top surface with a smooth side surface to allow one’s legs to move freely. We have found that this saddle works well for lightweight and strong riders who do not bear much mass on the seat and do not move much during the duration of the ride. The Transiro Mistica includes an integrated hydration bracket to keep bottles securely attached.
