    It has to do with promoting some company's seat.

    Fizik has different models of seat, BULL, SNAKE and CHAMELEON.

    I thought they had it on the bibs in case they needed a bike change, the mechanic would know which bike to grab.

    Even though I like the Arione the best, somehow I wound up with all (3) kinds on my (3) different bikes.

    This shocks me as I thought their snake/lizard/bull recommendations were based entirely on back flexibility, and given the percentage of slammed stems in the pro peloton I assumed everyone was extremely flexible.

    I've never not been able to touch my toes and I love my Ariones, so I've always half believed they have a good system.

    I like the Arione. If I keep my legs straight, then I can touch my toes, but if I lock my knees, then I can't touch them. Knees re a bit wonky

    I am also using the Gobi on my MTB. Which is a chameleon ... so ...

    Yeah Fizik's fitting system isn't all too accurate. It's heavily based on just the regular seating position of the sit bones.

    I can't touch my toes either but I use the nose a lot, and so the Aliante isn't a great saddle for me (and I've had to use it for a while to really know that). Then again proportions can also be a reason I can't touch my toes.

    I can put my hands flat on the floor (lifetime of Taekwondo helps), Aliante is the best seat I have ever used, very comfy.


    Don't worry about BACK flexibility. Rotate your HIPS. If you curl up your back you'll wreck it. Too many riders plant their sit bones on the saddle and bend their back to get low.
    Try crouching on the floor with your hands flat on the floor. Straighten up by bending at your pelvis, not your back. Do it regularly and you will increase your flexibility.

    I saw a bull snake once on my route. Took a while to clean the stain in my chamois.
