The Fizik Antares R3 Open saddle relieves pressure by adding a cut-out for 2018. This cut-out, combined with the Kium rails, offers more comfort when making long rides with this saddle. The Fizik Antares is the most allround saddle in the Fizik collection, not as specific as the Aliante or Arione.This makes the Fizik Antares Open suitable for most cyclists.
The Fizik Antares R3 Open saddle is made for those that Fizik calls ‘Chameleons’. A Chameleon is a cyclist with a quite flexible back. In terms of its form, the Antares Open saddle is a mix between the Arione Open and Aliante Open saddles. This saddle offers good support in all cycling positions. The Fizik Antares R3 Open is a light and stiff saddle and a part of the Antares collection. This is because of the carbon reinforced nylon shell, Wing Flex and the K:ium rails.
This saddle has a semi-round rear part, making it highly suitable for riders who move a little while they ride and whose hips rock a little from side to side. The semi-round shape provides plenty of support for those riders while maintaining sufficient freedom of movement compared to a flat saddle.
This is a semi-flat saddle, meaning that the saddle is flat at the front, and raised a little at the back. The shape makes it particularly suitable for riders with a moderate degree of flexibility in their spine. This has to do with how easily these riders can rotate their pelvis: they might need a little extra support when riding upright, but can manage on their own when riding on the drops.
This saddle has a cut-out and alleviates pressure for those who often experience discomfort or pressure to their soft tissue areas.
