The shining star of saddles

Fi'zi:k's Antares R1 Braided Saddle is the third 'A' between Fi'zi:k's Aliante and Arione saddles and it embodies comfort, flexibility, and an out-of-this-world lightness. It's not quite as light as the Antares 00, but at a mere 155grams, it is still a lightweight among lightweights. 

The Antares R1 was designed for the highly flexible rider who shifts positioning like a chameleon changes colors. The flat profile combines with a slightly rounded transverse section combine to create a shape that you can move around on easily while still maintaining optimal positioning to maximize power to the pedals. The shell differs slightly from that of the Antares R3 in that it is nylon carbon thermoplastic sheets rather than fiberglass reinforced. This material sandwiches a layer of foam, which provides stiffness necessary to support sit bones while also allowing flex at the edges to reduce chafing. The Wingflex technology allows the sides of the saddle to move with your legs while keeping the top rigid. This means that you'll transfer all your power to the pedals not to the saddle. The entire length of the Antares is covered in microtex fabric.

The weight savings on the Antares R1 is predominantly noticeable in the rails. Constructed from braided carbon fiber, they make for a 30g savings over the K:ium rails, which equates to 20% of the saddle's overall weight. The rails are made from braided carbon and then wrapped with another layer of carbon fiber cloth for even greater durability. They also have a rough surface for easy clamping. Another design feature for adding strength to the rails is the oval shaping — 9mm tall by 7mm wide. And yes, they are durable enough for everyday use.

The Fi'zi:k Antares R1 saddle weighs in at 155grams. It is 274mm long and 142mm wide. It is available in Black/black gummy.

Light and Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just upgraded to Antares R1 saddle from the 2014 Alliante R1. Took 8k miles of riding to finally desire a saddle that allowed more freedom of movement which this one does perfectly. At the same time it is 50 grams lighter on my Pinarello F8 and the ride comfort is the same. As my experience with all Fizik saddles, this one too is of high quality and is very durable.
