Not for me
by Duck

Obviously saddle fit is highly personal, and this saddle is great for some folks, but not me. I had an Aliante Gamma, which I really liked, on my gravel bike, but I went with this saddle for my road bike because of the Fizik fitting guidelines. I found this saddle hard in the wrong places and uncomfortable after mile 30 on longer rides. My sit bone measurement is 114mm, btw.

Nice comfortable road bike saddle for racers or high milage riders
by Greg

Bought this for my road bike. Replacing another Fizik Antares model without a cut out. This saddle has been a more comfortable. I like cut out and the cover on this one. It is very light and has the correct amount of padding. Important to set it at the right angle on the bike as the back is slightly higher than the front.

Excellent upgrade
by Eric @ MD

I've been using a Romin Pro (155 mm) for the past 4 years and was glad to have made the upgrade to the Antares R1 (large) when it was on sale for $130. It's a bit lighter (although I couldn't tell the difference when I'm riding) than my old saddle, but definitely more comfortable. My only minor complaint is that I wish that the nose was around 1-2 mm narrower.

I hate it
by Anonymous

Didn't work for me. Feels like your sitting on two golf balls and you also move around a lot on this thing. Its hard to maintain one position. I also hate how there is a drop from the back of the saddle to the flat part in the front. This makes it really hard to get comfortable and stay in the same positoins. I gave it some time but the saddle just continues to irk me.

Very happy with the feel and comfort of this saddle. Had a fizik Allantra for 4 years so wanted to stay with the brand. The open channel is new to me, roughly 500 miles on it and again it feels great.

impressive fit

So I had a Specialized Romin Evo Pro that I was fitted for, which at the time felt like a good saddle, but I didnt feel like it was a great saddle. So I had a bad crash and the seat got a little torn up, but still worked, but always want to replace it. So I saw this saddle on GCN so decided to take the plunge. Went on the Fizik website and entered in the information and was told this saddle is best fit for me. Ordered this saddle and wow is this saddle way more comfortable. Very impressed with the quality and fit.

Knowing your sit bone width is important.

Bought this in a 140mm width, with sit bones at 110mm and it's perfect for me. Very comfortable on long rides compared to Prologo Scratch2 PAS Saddle which is good for short crit races.

Saddle relief

If you like the standard Antares you'll love the new cutout design. My only complaint was about some occassional pressure points. This has been addressed and it's been great. Size 143mm.
