Fizik’s Antares R3 Versus EVO Saddle is a light and flexible performance road saddle made for “Chameleon” riders. According to Fizik’s Spine Concept EVO, a saddle selection system, Chameleon riders have medium flexibility and low pelvic rotation while pedaling, with a waved saddle for optimal support, power generation, and comfort. In addition to its waved profile, this saddle features a full-length pressure relief channel that alleviates pressure on sensitive soft tissue and properly distributes the rider’s weight across the saddle. Comfort Core foam padding beneath a Light Microtex cover ensures lasting comfort. The 7mm k:ium rails combined with a carbon reinforced shell deliver lightness and durability while the integrated clip system offers mounting versatility.

    Simple is Good

    There are limitations reviewing a saddle, since what works for my anatomy may not work for yours. That being said, I really like this product. Like most riders, I'm accumulating a decent pile of saddles that I don't use, but this one provides a comfortable ride. I've used it on Ironman, long gravel rides, many century rides and even put it on my mountain bike after a lesser, allegedly mountain saddle gave me butt sores. No butt sores with the Fizik, despite the mountain saddle having a squishier feel.

    I bought my first Fizik Antares one with carbon rails, attracted mostly by the low weight, and liked it so much I got a second, but with the Ki-um rails. The smaller diameter metal rails are easier to install and adjust. The weight savings wasn't that big of a deal (to me).

    The pressure relief channel works great. Every bit as well as a full cut-away.

    Holding it in your hand, it's very minimal (a compliment), and the cushion looks like it won't be comfortable, but it is.

    Also, I like the integrated clip for the fizik tool bag for road riding. Less so on gravel, because it's hinged and bounces a bit.

    I gave it a high-value rating because compared to other saddles in this weight range it was relatively inexpensive.

    Excellent long ride pressure relief

    I used a Tubo saddle for decades, but I eventually succumbed to the pressure on longer rides. I tried several saddles, Cutouts, and other technologies which encourage better blood flow. This saddle worked best for me, and I would definitely recommend it.

    Its a decent one.

    It has a nice balance between padding and firmness. The edges of the saddle are a bit sharp and can sometimes feel awkward if not uncomfortable. It found a permanent home on my track bike - my least ridden bike. Its well-made as expected.

    This saddle worried me when it arrived as it appeared too bare bones to provide appropriate comfort and support. My first long ride on it set me straight. The padding is thin but effective and the saddle is designed to support you at your sit bones, not other spots that get sore or chafed. Well designed and well built. Western sold the saddle at a good price and with good service. Cheap shipping was slow but hey I chose cheap shipping!
