Fizik Tritone K:ium Saddle: 4-week Review

I took home my Cervelo P2 with both the stock saddle and a tester - the newly released Fizik Tritone K:ium. After a few weeks on the trainer I was sold on the K:ium, despite the small additional dent it made in my wallet (small price to pay for happier ischial tuberosities, right?)

I was curious to try a shorter nose saddle after riding a pretty minimalistic Oval Concepts saddle on my road bike for years (which served me quite well). The Tritone K:ium is fairly narrow and less plush (compared to the Adamo I also tried), but has just enough padding for my bony butt to feel fine for up to 3 hours on the trainer (and possibly more, but 3 hours going nowhere is enough for me). Equally comfortable when getting into an aero tuck. There's a graded channel down the center that relieves some additional pressure up front.

The main problem this model solves for me is plain and simple - there isn't TOO MUCH SADDLE! For someone with a narrow build, the width is perfect, and the moderate cushion is just right. The width at the front end remains narrow, whereas other noseless models I tested were uncomfortably wide at the front given my body frame. There's no extra material (65mm of length, to be exact) up front where I don't need it - no body part exists that would rest there; with a longer nose, I only bump my legs against it when I get fatigued and sloppy (we're working on that) and catch my shorts on it when mounting and dismounting (yes, I might need less-stretched-out shorts).

Bonus features: a hook under the front for racking your bike in transition, and on the back for mounting 2 bottle cages, a cartridge, and a tube.

And of course, it looks pretty badass ;)

  4. The UFC originally planned an interim title bout between Nurmagomedov along with The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos welterweight winner Tony Ferguson, but it had been canceled due to the Russian together with medical issues associated with his weight reduction weigh-in day.Ferguson finally won the interim title at UFC 216 against Kevin Lee.Ferguson was subsequently predicted to fulfill Nurmagomedov at UFC 223, with the winner being crowned the undisputed champion (because McGregor would be stripped of this name if the bout happened ). In turn, it was scrapped once more (fourth moment ) since Ferguson got hurt, and following several chances to get an opponent, Nurmagomedov finally won the vacant title against Al Iaquinta. [9][10] This card has been marked by an assault on a bus comprising several fighters scheduled to compete at the event (like Nurmagomedov and 2 teammates), ran by McGregor and his team.

    Jussier Formiga was formerly scheduled to confront Sergio Pettis in January 2017 in UFC Fight Night: Rodríguez vs. Penn.. But, Formiga pulled from the fight for undisclosed reasons.The pairing was rescheduled for this occasion.
