The contact points including the saddle and handlebars are very important when setting up a bike as they can cause discomfort and reduce your performance if they are not correct. There are many ways to try and ensure that the saddle you are using is correct, and Fizik choose to use the flexibility test, and manufacture an exciting range of bespoke bike seats to suit a variety of riding styles. Fizik saddles offer exceptional quality in a lightweight package and at a reasonable price. Fizik are also industry leader when it comes to specialised cycling footwear, and Fizik's Road shoes and MTB shoes are second-to-none, and we'd recommend them in a heartbeat for cyclists looking for a more comfortable, more efficient cycling experience. The right pair of road shoes is essential and a pair such as Fizik r5b with a Boa fastening might be perfect for you and help increase performance.
