    Strengths:    weight, comfort

    Weaknesses:    expensive if paying retail

    Bottom Line:   
    rode the regular arione for a couple years and would get numbness in my groin within about 30-60 minutes . i am much more comfortable with the flatter profile of the cx carbon (carbon rails and shell) and numbness is gone. wish I had switched sooner plus I got a great deal on eBay.

    Strengths:    Comfort, looks, light weight, price for what you get.

    Weaknesses:    For me personally, there are none.

    Bottom Line:   
    Have been playing around with quite a few saddles over the last year but keep coming back to this one.

    The standard Arione is too soft for me and perhaps a bit too rounded in it's profile. Although comfortable, I would get hotspots about 20 mins into the ride.

    This being a bit flatter and lighter in the padding department does the job nicely.

    Strengths:    Able to get over 15,000 miles on the first one and only got a new one because of some wear at the tip.

    Weaknesses:    None really. but a little tricky to install on my Cervelo ... my shop has no problem doing it though!

    Bottom Line:   
    Just purchased my second Fizik Arione CX with carbon braided rails ... excellent product. Comfortable and long lasting

    Strengths:    Good fit for me comfortable from first ride softer ride, and weight saving also.

    Weaknesses:    None so far

    Bottom Line:   
    I was using an original Fizik Arione saddle on my old road bike and bought the new Fizik Arione CX Carbon Braided Rails for my new build. For me it was a better fit than the old Fizik Arione from the start. Seems softer than my old I was using an original Fizik Arione saddle on my old road bike and bought the new Fizik Arione CX Carbon Braided Rails for my new build.

    Strengths:    looks

    Weaknesses:    weight saving = numb ass

    Bottom Line:   
    Have to agree with other reviewer. I too had th e standard arione and thought I'd upgrade to the new CX. Not because I am a weight weenie but I figured if they have released a new model after the old one it had to be good. I was disappointed but my loss is someone else gain as I have swapped for the "old school" arione and will be comfy again.

    I'm talking about the full carbon shell Arione CX Carbon. not the normal Arione CX. I was wondering, does anyone feel the twin-flex technology in work? and is the "Handmade in Italy Patent Pending" on the bottom of the carbon shell a sticker or actually "on" the carbon? -thanks!Read More »
