Fizik Antares R3 Kium Rail Road Saddle
Fizik Antares R3 Kium Rail Road Saddle
Now available in 2 widths, 142mm and 152mm to provide the perfect fit for more riders, regular and large. Use the Spine Concept Evo system to find your perfect fit. The Antares is 1 of fi'zi:k's 3 Spine Concept™ Mens Road Saddle shapes. Of these 3, the Antares shape is wide and slightly curved in profile.
If you have an intermediate degree of spinal flexibility (approximately 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders' width apart), you are a chameleon. Your degree of spinal flexibility helps you so far, before you need to rotate your pelvis slightly to achieve fully the performance position.

Antares / Chameleon - a slight curve towards the rear of the saddle, slightly wider than the arione. Provides some pelvic rotation support whilst still allowing some movement of the rider on the saddle.
Mr TURNERNicely built but not for everyone. Saddles are such a personal thing - in this case I knew instantly it wasn’t for me - which is a shame as it’s a lovely saddle.
Mr McMahonSaddles really are a personal choice and so much depends on your bike fit. Often saddle issues are not related to the actual saddle but rather issues related to fit. But having had a pro bike fit and trying this saddle I must say it is top quality. Supremely comfortable. The slight dip is perfect for my position and the padding is spot on. I've tried the Selle Italia SLR and Fizik Aliante and this is the best fit for me.
Mr AlcockGreat saddle! Light enough and looks great. Saddles are quite personal but the antares suits me and i’ve got one on all my bikes!
Mr WInderThe best saddle yet, I've done a couple of very comfortable miles so far.
Roy StittWish I had bought this years ago. A firm but flexible perch to sit on for long hours. Good support when putting power down. Great service from Merlin, will definitely use them again.
Mr shawInstant relief from months of painful riding. Worth every penny and very comfortable saddle.
Mr CavazosPurchased to replace a deleted model from another manufacturer. If you ride saddles with a flat top & need one a little wider, then this is the saddle for you. Comfortable on the first ride! Strongly recommended.
Mr JackDecided on this saddle after a bit of research. The other reviews I read were spot on. Good fit. Comfortable, especially if you're more of an upright rider. Easy to fit and adjust.
Paul BThis is a fantastic saddle, definitely the most comfortable I've ever used. The Spine Concept EVO guide on the Fizik website gives you a very simple way to determine which saddle will suit you best (just be honest about your flexibility). The finish is top notch as you'd expect and the addition of the ICS clip means you can add a variety of accessories for a very clean look. My Ortlieb Micro ICS saddle bag clips straight in and is as solid as a rock. Great service and delivery from Merlin too
Mr LeeGot 4 road bikes all with Fizik Antares saddles really good product and great price and service from Merlin.
MaywoodGreat looking saddle. Really love Fizik, had an Ardea before and bought this for my new bike. Like the 3 categories idea with Fizik, seems to work, or at least it has for me.
LucExcellent service as usual from Merlin Cycles. Good saddle, it's not my first Antares so I knew what to expect.
StephenSupportive but comfortable. Used Fiziks fit guide.
Mr MatevishGood fit and finish. Despite being what Fizik recommended for my body type, it's still a little uncomfortable at times. That said, I rode a century and came away feeling fine, so it might just be in my head.
Mr LimI cannot say this is the most comfortable saddle I have ever used, however this is an excellent saddle. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for the best saddle around 100quid.
Mr AllsoppComfy saddle and looks great especially with the new style rails in the darker finish.
