Can't find much on it online. Nor mention of it on Fizik's site.

Anyone have this saddle, or have heard/read reviews of it?

Oh, and what's the difference between K:IUM and Manganese rails?

I've tried Arione Classic which looks identical to R7. The width worked fine for me but I prefer the relief channel so I switched to Arione VS.

K:IUM rail is supposed to be little bit lighter (for those who care that much).

I actually just made a purchase for the R5 with Kium rails. Should arrive on Wednesday. Fingers crossed. :D

R7 is OEM AFAIK, I have an aliante r7 on the commuter, its exactly the same feel as more expensive fizik saddles, just weighs a bit more

The big difference is silicone.

K:ium is a "proprietary" metal alloy that has silicone in it to make the rails lighter and more compliant. It's also supposed to increase the longevity of them.
