FIZIK ALIANTE R1 BRAIDED £219.99
The first major redesign of the Aliante after 15 years is a major triumph. It retains the swoopy, curved shape so loved by endurance riders worldwide. The nose has been slimmed down a little, it’s lost a fair few grams yet retains the flexible comfort-giving carbon/nylon hybrid base. At 185g you can find lighter, but you’ll struggle to find greater comfort.
