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.
