Firm, comfortable saddle for road bike and doesn't put pressure where it shouldn't. Found I have to put the nose down slightly for best fit.
Great finishes and comfy, highly recommend
Finally brought a Fizik , thanks to Merlin for the sale price, to see what all the fuss is about. I can say it is only a marginal improvement over my Specialized BG, as the surface material is " better ". If I paid full retail I will be disappointed for sure. But saddle choice is such an individual's case specific, I cannot fault Fizik nor its retail price. The search goes on.
It has a stiff base without wing flex. Perinal relief area does the job. Due to lack of wing flex, sides tend to be stiff thanks to one piece carbon reinforced shell. The edge of the canal creates pressure points less than VSX version for sure. Padding is firm at nose unfortunately so this might create some pressure if you are in aero positions. I recommend this saddle, if you have wide sitbones (above 110 mm) and feel numbess with full covered saddles.
Have used the Antares vs models for 2 years now on 2 bikes and they cause me no problems - just what you want from a saddle!
I used the Fizik method on their website of how close you can get to touching your toes dictating which model to go for.
This one looks extra cool with its black rails - perfect for my all black bike.
Still getting used to this saddle and it starts feel comfortable after 5km into rides. Great saddle at an incredible price; thanks Merlin cycles!
Delivered to the US in a few days. Very comfortable saddle for my road bike over 50 mile rides
I already had a Antares saddle and liked it so much I bought a second one for my other bike, as always price and delivery were good.
