Fizik Antares R1 Carbon Braided Saddle Info

When you’re looking to step up your Fizik Antares Saddle game, the R1 is waiting for you to install. Fizik is pretty straightforward with their naming conventions. The Antares refers to the slightly-curved shape you see here, and specific saddle dimensions, detailed below. R1 refers to the upgrade of the shell and rails.

The shell is a carbon-composite, which drops a bit of weight from the equation. The rails are carbon-braided and an almost-oval 7x9mm dimension, which drops weight and adds strength. The rails are marked to the millimeter for precision fitting. The saddle weighs in at 165g.

The Antares shape sits in between the curved Aliante and the flat Arione, and, befitting its position, is for in-between rider. In Fizik’s Spine Concept System, this saddle is for “Chameleon” riders, those with moderate flexibility and low pelvic rotation while pedaling. Their guidance is hardly definitive. If you like some curve to your seat, a shortish nose, and a broad back for sitting, this is the Fizik Saddle for you.

The cover is made of Microtex, a smooth, tough synthetic leather that wears well. There are actually three panels of Microtex, a main and two side pieces, the side panels are called thigh glides. The sides are also Microtex, but have a different finish. As with all Fizik saddles, the Fizik logo in the back detaches to reveal a mounting point for Fizik Integrated Clip System accessories, a line that includes both lights and bags.

The Fizik Antares R1 Saddle has the shape you need, with a delightful addition of carbon style and deduction of weight.
