Product Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

There aren’t too many equipment decisions more important than which saddle you will ride. Getting it right will save you all sorts of hours of discomfort and even keep saddle sores at bay. The Fizik Antares R1 Braided Saddle is a light, high quality saddle intended for riders who have a mid-range degree of flexibility.

Within their Spine Concept, the Antares is intended for the group of riders who are mildly flexible, but aren’t quite hanging with the folks who can touch their knuckles to the ground without bending the knees. Since comfort is paramount, the Antares shell is constructed from a carbon composite which is co-injected with nylon to give it the light springiness we all love in Fiziks. Fizik Wing Flex technology to ensure that the saddle will move with you pedal stroke by pedal stroke. The Wing Flex on both sides of the saddle moves with your legs pedaling motion to give just when and where you need it, but without sacrificing any of the support you require while putting the power down to your pedals. Then it is covered in Fizik’s Microtex that will be durable enough to protect it in crashes or when you carelessly lean it against a brick wall, but also stylish enough to look chic.

To keep the saddle as light as possible, Fizik gives the Antares R1 their distinctive 7x9mm carbon-braided rails. If there was once a time that you were afraid to trust such an important component as the saddle rails to a carbon construction, know that you no longer need to worry since Fizik carbon rails have withstood cols and cobbles with never a hitch. You shouldn’t need to be concerned about your seatpost being compatible with the Fizik, since anything vertical clamping will work with a 7x9 rail. By now the industry has gone to a standard of 7x9 carbon rails, to insure compliance. And if you clamp doesn’t work with these rails, nearly every manufacturer of seatposts produces an adapter for carbon rails. So that means that pretty much whatever you ride, you can get it to work with the Fizik braided carbon rails. If you are comparing dimensions, the Antares is 274x142mm, which makes it one millimeter shorter than the Aliante, while being two millimeters wider. It will give your bum the sort of area that is essential to support while still offering enough room to adjust your position fore and aft, depending on what sort of terrain you are tackling.

Weighing just 155 grams, the Fizik Antares R1 Braided Saddle offers you some of the best value for money of any Fizik saddle. Save a bit of dough while you’re saving your ass from hours of pain with the Antares R1 Braided Saddle.
