It's been a while since the previous posts but I though this was a good place to air a concern I have.
We (the Blounts) have 4x original Fizik Ares saddles that were purchased because they were UCI legal i.e. longer than 240mm. In fact they are 242mm long providing a 2mm safe margin and avoidance of any dispute with a UCI official.
When moved forward to the UCI limit of 50mm behind the bottom bracket, the saddle gives an aggressive but UCI legal set up.
The new Fizik Ares which I believe was launched in 2013 and appears on the 2014 Fizik website is a different item. Fizik claim the new saddle is 235mm long and if correct IS NOT UCI LEGAL!
Reference to images of the early and late models provides visible evidence that they are not the same.

So please take care when buying.
