Fizik Mistica Triathlon Saddle with K:ium RailsItem #: FIZ17501 Usually ships in 2-3 business days
Italian saddle maker, Fizik, has taken their extensive knowledge of tri saddles to design and developed the Mistica Triathlon Saddle with K:ium alloy seat rails. The Mistica is a nose-less tri saddle designed and engineered for triathletes who favor a forward seated position and want greater comfort on longer events. This stubby, nose-less shape allows for comfort and pure performance in the aero-tuck position delivering a faster ride in the - all important - triathlon cycling leg. It has a full-length pressure relieving channel, friction-free nose construction, extra grippy material for stability, and generous foam padding specifically designed to provide all-day comfort. The reinforced carbon fiber/nylon shell is lightweight and stiff with Fizik's proprietary K:ium alloy seat rails for plenty of adjustment. The Mistica saddle utilizes a modular Carriage Kit that bolts neatly onto the rear, enabling you to carry a water bottle, C02 cartridge, inflator and a spare inner tube for a clean integrated look. The kit installs at the rear of the saddle and does not interfere with pedaling, and there's a tough plastic Front Transition Hook just under the nose of the saddle for racking. Not to mention, there's a built-in Integrated Clip System (ICS) which allows for quick attachment and removal of Fizik packs and blink lights. The super-innovative and stealthy Fizik Mistica Triathlon Saddle delivers a podium ride, from start to finish!

Hammertime, Can't Touch This!
May 11, 2017
I tried Selle SMPs (Lite 209 and Avant), I tried ISM (Adamo Road and PN1.1), I tried Cobb (Plus)...I spent so much and yet those seats never solved my saddle issues: my balls just kept touching the front part of the saddle when I am on aero position. I hated the feeling of annoying pains and numbness those saddles created. I tilted the nose so low or lowered my seat to compromise but I kept sliding forward and or my legs are too bent that I get thigh muscles sore after my rides. I was then wishing for a saddle design that has a very short nose whereby when I am tucked aero a good area of my butt is well supported yet my balls are free. As MC Hammer says, "Can't Touch This!" This Fizik Mistica just solved the mystery. I am very well pleased seating aero most of my rides now. I highly recommend this seat to those with the same issues as mine.
Pros:Well thought of design. Comes with free rear water bottle Good butt support. Rubbery surface to minimize sliding. Balls are free on the aero or drops.
Cons:Foam is hard. They should have a choice between hard and soft foam (Like the Cobb Plus uses). Non-leather seat heats up in hot weather and long rides. Must come in leather covering option (Like the Selle SMPs)
