Fizik Luce Range

 

Fi’z:k has long offered saddle designs specifically developed and sized for women, with the Vitesse & Vesta coming to mind on top of an adapted-for-women Arione Donna shell. But with the introduction of an all-new saddle line called the Luce, available in two widths, it looks like Fizik is rethinking how they fit both women and men on the bike.

The new Luce saddles, replace both the Arione Donne & Vitesse, leaving just an entry-level Vesta remaining. But that’s probably not a bad thing. At the same time as they are debiting this new trimmed down kite shape for women with its relief cut-out, Fizik have started to offer all of their top road saddles in two widths to fit more riders, both women & men…

The new Luce Carbon looks to blend a wide flat rear for a stable perch with a quickly tapering, yet tall nose for reduced friction on the thighs when pedaling. The top-level saddle uses a multi-part shell with a carbon-reinforced beam down the center that let Fizik cut in the relief opening, and connects to their one-piece carbon looped Mobius saddle rail for an incredibly stiff structure. Then on top of that, Fizik molds in two more flexible wing panels that give strong but comfortable support to the sit bones, allowing the saddle to flex under the ride for all day comfort.

The top of Luce Carbon saddle weight just 175g and sells for 180€. At a relatively long 281mm it comes in two widths of either: 144mm Regular, or 155mm Large (which also adds 10g.)

A more affordable Luce S-Alloy version is available for just 100€ with the same carbon-reinforced shell but a heavier S-Alloy rail that brings weights up to 230/240g for the two 144/155mm widths.

For those women lamenting the loss of the Arione Donna, don’t fret just yet.  With the new Regular & Large sizing of their road saddles, Fizik has taken the regular 130mm wide Arione and added a new 142mm wide Arione Large.

Luce Carbon

 

 

Luce Carbon: a women’s saddle like no other.

Following our extensive research project fi’z:k undertook a whole new construction for the ultimately comfortable, high-performing women’s saddle, Luce. It has a wider sitting area shape narrowing down toward the nose for better weight distribution and less friction on the thighs.

To create a shape for truly comfortable high-performance long rides, we made the strong, light shell from three separate sections: a carbon reinforced nylon spine co-injected with two very flexible, strong panels made from a thermoplastic elastomer. We built the Luce Carbon on narrow carbon Mobius rail construction, accommodating a specially designed elongated pressure relief cut out, offering a combination of flexible support – called IschialFlex – under the sit-bones and comfortable freedom for the rider’s soft tissues. This unique shape that provides a perfect profile for female cyclists and maintains structural stability over time.

Luce Carbon – made for women – has a maximum width of 144mm and weighs just 175g.
