VS X models are for riders who want a fi’zi:k saddle with a relief zone. This is a solid-base saddle with a 20mm-deep ergonomic channel spanning its entire length, set between two specifically-formulated double injections of foam.
The Arione VS X Braided’s carbon braided rail reduces weight and increases saddle stiffness.
Arione VS X is for The Snake:Flexible Spine
If you are very spinally flexible (far less than 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders’ width apart), you are a Snake. You achieve the performance position using your spinal flexibility alone, not rotating your pelvis at all.
You will like the flat, narrow and long shape of the Arione.
Provided this saddle’s width isn’t too narrow for them, some women may find this model comfortable due to the presence of the relief channel.
