Liggett gives thumbs-up to WingFlex saddle

If you had to liken a Stealth bomber to a saddle, this would be the one to use. It's sleek, black and designed with the aid of computers and electrodes stuck to Simoni's bum. The Tour de France commentator is one of the first in the UK to own a Fizik WingFlex Arionne saddle (and in the best traditions of Monty Python's Holy Grail, he's got two of 'em) and it had its first outing on yesterday's Phil and Friends Challenge Ride in the Peak District
Publish date:

This was the third annual staging of the CTC's Phil and Friends Ride. 550 riders turned up, including a contingent from IBD JE James of Sheffield.

Isla Rowntree, a bike and products speccer for Halfords, rode with 1950s Tour de France multiple stage winner Brian Robinson. And hanging on to the select bunch of 'Phil's friends' were editor Carlton Reid and author Graham Fife.

The CTC president and TdF commentator was riding his project one Trek and was testing one of the Fizik WingFlex saddles which Selle Royal had supplied him with at the Tour.

He told the saddle was comfortable, although the tough 56-mile route through the Peak District was his first ride since the end of the Tour.
