Strength:

Comfort, style and weight.

Weakness:

None so far.

My San Marco Era saddle was getting to look a bit tattered and I was looking to lighten up my ride prior to a training camp in Majorca. So I purchased a saddle that was suppose to reduce the pressure. Needless to say, NEVER change saddles prior to a week of big miles. I developed severe pain in my upper left leg and could barely sit on the saddle. I came home and purchased a Fizik Aireon saddle and love it. All of my leg pain went away instantly. At last nights group ride, my legs felt great due to the increased blood flow and I had no pain in my siatic nerve. This thing is a keeper and it looks awesome to boot.

Strength:

COMFORTABLE. LIGHT.

Weakness:

NONE

I don't have the fancy World Champ. edition just the plain ole black arione saddle. I have been riding since 1975 and this is the most comfortable saddle I have ever used. It is even comfortable when I'm sitting on the nose of the saddle when I use my clip on bars for TTs. I just ordered a second arione for my second bike.

Strength:

Exclusivity (World's colors), more contact area, looks, comfort, used by team Saeco. Goes with any color scheme.

Weakness:

Price, you can get lighter saddles for much cheaper. Heavier than top of the line Aliante' model. Will be hard to find due to high demand.

Probably the best looking saddle ever. Looks alone just tops the charts! The longer platform allows for more adjustments, especially on climbs. Same saddle Simoni and Astarloa use(d) on team Saeco. Very comfortable. Was already happy with my little SLR when I stumbled upon a bike shop...saw this baby and didn't hesitate since I know it will be difficult to find. Also helped that the shop gave me a discount for being part of a club...so if you're part of a club, ask your LBS if they'd honor it. That's how I paid for what I paid.
