The Gobi is 1 of fi’zi:k’s 3 Spine Concept™ MTB Saddle shapes. Of these 3, the Gobi shape is quite wide and slightly waved in cross-sectional profile.
The simple silicon ring fits around your seatpost to add an extra touch of colour to your bike. It also helps reduce water and dirt ingress into the seat tube, as well as marking insertion depth on your seatpost so that you remember your saddle height.
Gobi XM is for The Chameleon:Medium Spine.
If you have an intermediate degree of spinal flexibility (approximately 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 chameleon. Your degree of spinal flexibility helps you so far, before you need to rotate your pelvis slightly to achieve fully the performance position.
You will benefit from the increased width and slight curvature of the Gobi shape.
Shell: Nylon Carbon Reinforced with Wing Flex™ for freedom of thigh movement and Tail Flex™ for ease of transition on and off your bike
Integrated Clip System: Yes
