Fizik’s New Alpaca Saddles

Product information provided by Fizik

Fizik announces the launch of Alpaca, a new range of mountain bike saddles developed with Santa Cruz Syndicate to offer support, riding control and durability – for trail, all-mountain, enduro and downhill.

There are two new saddle models in the range to suit different riding disciplines: Terra Alpaca is perfect for all-mountain riding on full-suspension trail bikes, while Gravita Alpaca is designed for fast, aggressive enduro and downhill.

Terra Alpaca is shaped to be easy to move around on, wherever you ride – and also offers great pedaling support. The shape’s gradual transition from the nose to the wings allows constant fore and aft position changes required for all-mountain riding, while the slightly waved tail discreetly supports the lower back.


Gravita Alpaca is for fast, aggressive downhill riding. Developed in close collaboration with the Santa Cruz Syndicate’s trio of downhill racers – Loris Vergier, Greg Minnaar and Luca Shaw – its World Cup-proven features perfectly complement gravity-oriented bikes, from long-travel enduro to pure downhill.


Founded in 1996, fizik’s mission is to make the most sophisticated, inspiring and beautiful gear for the world’s most discerning cyclists.

The passion for design and performance behind fizik’s diverse product range for road, off-road and triathlon is expressed through the countless victories in the pro peloton, being the choice of the most inspiring athletes and winning many design awards.

fizik is committed to providing the ultimate in saddle, shoe, bar-tape and component design – combining comfort and light weight with technology and innovation.

Through physiological research, anatomic studies and advanced technological development, fizik has succeeded in creating that perfect combination.
No matter whether you challenge yourself or other riders, or whether you’re a pro-rider or an amateur, if you’re searching for the most beautiful and best performing cycling gear, fizik is the answer.

fi’zi:k is the phonetic spelling of the word physique, referring to the form or state of the human body.
