Description

Description

This Fizik Antares R5 Road bike saddle is a comfortable and relatively light saddle with excellent value for money.
Made for cyclists with medium flexibility, the shell of this saddle is made of carbon-reinforced polyamide. The carbon reinforcement improves the power transmission of this saddle. This saddle also lasts longer because the carbon keeps its shape for longer. A comfortably padded saddle cloth with a Microtex surface is placed on top of this shell. The lightweight aluminium rails complete the look and again improve power transmission.

Shape saddle
This saddle has a semi-circular end, which makes it very suitable for people who rock their hips a bit while cycling. Because this is a semi-round saddle, it gives those people enough support and at the same time enough freedom of movement compared to a flat saddle.

Agility
This is a Semi-Flat saddle, meaning the saddle is flat at the front and rises slightly towards the back. The shape of this saddle makes it suitable for people with average spinal flexibility. This has to do with pelvic tilt, when you sit in an upright position you need the support to tilt the pelvis but not, for example, when cycling in the drops.

Recess
This saddle has a recess and provides pressure relief for people who experience pressure on the seat easily.

excellent saddle

- Francesco 9 February 2024

a really well-made saddle, as fizik products generally are. i switched from a fabric saddle with gel more oriented to long distances and comfort but for now i find myself better with this fizik saddle, especially doing a lot of climbing. it feels much better. beautiful aesthetically. excellent shipping from this site

Fine saddle. Recess not mega large like certain other saddles. Firmness is just right. Very good quality.

Pros & Cons

Hardness just right.
High quality.
Recess not too big.

After much trying, the Fizik is again the nicest.

- Mark 7 July 2023

After trying many different saddles, I ended up with the Fizik Vento Antares When I cycle with this saddle, I notice that it is a really hard saddle, but do not notice huge pressure on the sit bones. Most of my rides last 2-3 hours without stopping or dismounting and I can keep that up perfectly with this saddle. Don't expect longer to be a problem either. The recess is a lot smaller compared to the Selle italia model x / pro stealth. You will notice this when sitting deeper, but I never experience any problems myself. (I've never had any problems with saddles without a recess). The weight of this saddle (140mm) would be 210gr. Pretty decent, at least not very heavy. The saddle surface is not too slippery that your trousers wear out quickly or that it is difficult to sit up. Not too slippery either, just good. The edges of the saddle can move along slightly (wingflex) so you don't experience sharp edges. Furthermore, it is a nicely finished saddle with a nice black rail. There is no bracket/screw or anything like that on the underside of the saddle. Some saddles have this for attaching accessories, but this saddle does not. In the end, it's just trying many different saddles until you find the right one. I think €100 is on the high side, but once you're comfortable and realise that the saddle might last 10 years it makes little difference. Another tip from me: if you have never sat comfortably on a road bike before, it might also be useful to adjust your bike properly first if you are still unsure about this. Furthermore, a good pair of cycling shorts works wonders. I have been cycling in Castelli Competizione trousers for years and that, in combination with my new saddle, is absolutely perfect.
