With an anatomic cut-out shape and advanced technology, materials and craft, the Fizik Antares R3 Open is a performance road saddle for riders who want a medium saddle profile and a cut-out to avoid pressure and numbness. Made for riders with medium body flexibility and low pelvic rotation while pedaling, the Antares is a neutral profile saddle with support and flexibility so you can move to find your ideal power spot and maintain comfort. The Antares R3 Open features a composite Carbon-reinforced nylon shell and a light, strong, corrosion-resistant K:ium rail. A Comfort Core foam layer beneath the neat, durable Microtex cover provides comfort, which is enhanced by the full anatomic cut-out that avoids pressure on the rider’s sensitive soft tissue and ensures that all weight is correctly supported across the whole surface of the saddle.

DannyResearched this long and hard after the mitsake of getting lighter stifffer blah blah blah saddles. The small amount of flex in the saddle over bumps is great, size and fit based on the Fizik video is spot on for me and I love the saddle for the price and weight. Merlin prices and service are excellent too. Thanks!
Mr Scott AdamsI am FiziK fan, so swopped out older Aliante saddle to bike 2. This being for bike 1 searched long and hard for best price on new saddle after finding reviews both favourable, and to suit my aging butt and riding position. As always Merlin you old wizard, you came up with the magic price and instant delivery times. thanks again from one of your apprentices. great Fizik product and Great supply company.
FrancFirst time riding an open saddle so far so good. After a bit of adjustment the saddle is feeling comfy.
Mr SmartSecond purchase of this. Quality seat at a good price.
YouhuanI used to use Antares VS but this is my new favorite saddle. Very good for long rides.
Mr HoggI've now ridden this a few miles in different conditions and it's proven to be comfortable and supportive. It's the first open saddle I've used and it seems to be effective.
RichardFizik, always good. Check the saddle fit is right first though.
Alberto222g on my scale for a 142mm. After 100 km ride feels good, this replaces a fizik Antares, the gap definitely makes a difference as I can feel some pressure relief. Still needs more time for a proper review, I wanted this saddle to be able to ride longer distances 150km + with no hassle, we will see.
Mrs DeeganGood fit, comfortable on 1st 70km cycke,
Matt DicksonGreat saddle, have only used it sparingly so far, but very impressed with weight and comfort. Not sure I will use the clip system for a saddle bag, as it looks to hang precariously.
