Fizik introduces Comfort Guarantee and crash replacement programs

Fizik shoe crash replacement

Fizik has long believed that its saddles (and now, shorts) are the best in the business, and now the company is backing that position with an aggressive money-back guarantee, along with a new program designed to keep current users in the Fizik family after a crash. Both are intended to provide some peace-of-mind for riders leery of investing a fair chunk of money into items that often have no guarantee of long-term satisfaction.

“We are so sure of our new 2018 range,” said Fizik retail and marketing specialist Priscilla Savord, “that we are allowing customers to return the product within 90 days for saddles, and 30 for bibs/shoes if they are not 100% satisfied with their purchase.”

It can be heartbreaking to discover a few weeks after buying a new saddle or pair of shoes that they’re not right for you, but it’s arguably even worse to destroy those items in a crash after you’ve fallen in love with them. To address that scenario, Fizik’s new crash replacement program will offer a 25% discount on saddles, shoes, and even shorts when one of those items has been damaged in a wreck. While obviously not a pain-free situation financially, the program at least eases the sting to a fair degree.

Both of these programs are effective immediately, and will be implemented through your local Fizik dealer.
