The Versus model is for riders who wants a fi'zi:k Bull saddle with a relief zone. It has a solid-base with an ergonomic 5mm-deep central relief channel spanning the length of the saddle. The increased curvature (support) is ideally suited to Bulls.
Aliante VS is for The Bull: Rigid SpineIf you have a relatively low degree of spinal flexibility (more than 90 degrees between your straight legs and back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders' width apart), you are a Bull. Your degree of Spinal flexibility will top out quite quickly when attempting to adopt the performance position. For this reason you will rotate you pelvis fully and will benefit from the increased curvature (pelvic support) of the Aliante shape.Provided this saddle's width isn't too narrow for them, some women may find this model comfortable due to the presence of the relief channel.
Fi'zi:k Tecnología ICS: (Integrated clip system) practical design that allows quick fitting of bags and Fi'zi: k lights to the base of the saddle & no additional supports or tools are needed.

Founded in 1996, Fizik (or Fi'zi:k to be more accurate!) are primarily known for their range of bike saddles, which are aimed at the performance and racing end of the market. Typically they're lightweight and sleek - you don't find any beginner style chunky padded saddles in their ranges. The company is owned by Selle Royal, an Italian saddle maker, and Fi'zi:k obtains it's name from the phonetic spelling of the word physique. Recently they've branched out into other areas, such as cycling shoes and road bar tape, as well as road finishing kit such as bars, stems and seatposts, mainly finished in their customary black colour scheme. Famous riders to have competed using Fi'zi:k's products include Geraint Thomas, Phillipe Gilbert, and Rohan Dennis.
