Just over a year ago Fizik reshaped their pressure relief saddle lineup with Versus Evo iterations of their core Arione, Antares & Aliante road saddles. While offering extra comfort, some riders wanted lighter weight & less flex. So Fizik has adapted the deep cutout Versus Evo concept onto their premium lightweight, hi-mod carbon 00 level saddles too…
Fizik Versus Evo 00 premium pressure relief carbon road saddles
Using its prominent central cutout, a new split flexing shell design, and a flexible area where your thighs move up and down, the Versus Evo saddles were already available at either a 210€ R1 level with carbon rails or the 160€ R3 level with K:ium alloy rails, but both shared the same basic nylon shell with carbon fibers injection molded in for reinforcement.
In the new 00-level saddle range, you get the same pressure relief benefits due to the deep cutout, but now it is on top of the high modulus carbon shell and Fizik’s one-piece Möbius Loop carbon rails. The result is maximum stiffness, no unwanted flex, lighter weight, and of course a bigger pricetag.

All of the Versus Evo 00 saddles use a two-piece vacuum molded-on Microtex synthetic cover on top of thin, firm foam padding. And each is also available in two widths – Regular and the wider Large.
