Fizik Terra Alpaca X5
TERRA ALPACA X5 is a new mountain bike saddle offering support and riding control – in and out of the saddle, up or down the hills.
This Terra version of the Alpaca saddle is perfect for full-suspension trail bikes; it's designed to feel right whether your dropper post is extended for pedaling or dropped for descents.
The 145mm wide saddle offers great pedaling support but it's also easy to move around on. A gradual transition from the nose to the wings allows constant fore-and-aft position changes, while the slightly waved tail discreetly supports your lower back.
We wanted this saddle to help you explore the toughest trails. So, the nose is wide and flat, offering a solid platform to push against as you shimmy forward to maintain traction when tackling steep climbs. For added comfort, we've added an ergonomic indent that relieves soft tissue pressure without interfering with baggy riding shorts.
Once you've conquered the climbs and you head downhill with dropper post lowered, your saddle becomes a control device.
Terra Alpaca's rounded contours allow smooth and fast movement of your legs around the saddle to help you stay on course. And flexible edges along the wings and rear end protect your inner legs from bruising, however rough the ride.
Rugged conditions and rowdy riding require solid solutions, that's why all Alpaca saddles feature Mobius, our proprietary closed-loop rail design, for added strength and weight distribution, making snapped saddle rails on heavy landings a thing of the past.
