Saddle Up With a Handmade fi’zi:k Saddle in WBR Red
World Bicycle Relief is pleased to announce another phenomenal partnership with racing brand fi'zi:k.
As this year's North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) approached, Fizik set their sights on a color-based theme and an organization to benefit from their handmade saddles auction--resulting in 15 red saddles to benefit WBR!
“Fizik really wanted to focus on the handmade story behind their product and we thought what better way to encompass the ethos of our brand than producing some one-of-a-kind saddles for NAHBS,” said fizik North American Manager Adam Bookwalter.
Fizik has produced 15 one-of-a-kind saddles, in 15 distinct shades of red for this special occasion. Fizik chose WBR as a partner In an effort to help promote cycling and transportation around the world. Being an organization founded on the principles of compassion and integrity, fizik feels that World Bicycle Relief is the perfect partner. Fizik will be auctioning off 11 of these 15 one-of-a -kind saddles and all proceeds will go to that organization.
“We are thrilled to be the beneficiary of this amazing project”, said Katie Bolling from World Bicycle Relief. “There is a lot passion behind each of the saddles – much like each bicycle we distribute into the field--and Fizik is a company that we’re proud to be associated with given their commitment to innovation.”
The saddle auction began on February 22, in conjunction with the opening of NAHBS. The saddles are open to bidding for 10 days. The Pros Closet will conduct the auction; we encourage bidders to visit www.theproscloset.com for more information about each saddle and to view pictures of these one of a kind works of art.
