Fizik Luce Women’s Saddle Review

In its first foray into women’s saddles, Fizik claims its new Luce saddle follows a diff erent path to the infamous ‘shrink it and pink it’ route taken by many brands when launching women-specific products. By analysing all standards of female riders Fizik found its traditional fit logic didn’t apply, so the Luce is shaped to accommodate better flexibility yet wider sit bones. It’s shorter, the rear is wider and the front has a narrower nose, which Fizik claims all adds up to better female-specific ergonomics. The Luce’s 175g weight rivals most of Fizik’s top men’s saddles and even its name isn’t stereotypically feminine – Luce is pronounced ‘loo-che’ and is Italian for light.
