Product Description

A high-performance saddle with a streamlined shape and tapered nose-to-wing transition, now available with Adaptive padding, our most advanced 3D-printed padding technology.

As a member of the new generation of Antares saddles, the Antares R3 Adaptive maintains many iconic design features that made the original one of the most popular amongst leading athletes. First introduced to the fizik family over twenty years ago, Antares has appeared in nearly every Grand Tour since, supporting some of the leading names in cycling such as Wout Van Aert and Jonas Vingegaard. Reimagined in our innovative Adaptive padding, a new Antares has arrived and is ready to make history again.

Antares is designed for riders seeking a performance saddle that doesn’t sacrifice comfort. As our performance option, Antares has been race-proven by athletes around the world, from those competing on roads to cyclocross and cross-country riders. The Antares R3 saddle balances strength with weight savings by incorporating the combination of a ride-compliant carbon-reinforced nylon shell with a resilient Kium hollow rail.

Fizik Adaptive 3D-printed padding has expanded to the Antares family, creating the perfect match for those who want exceptional, long-lasting comfort on a low-profile performance saddle designed to allow a more connected feeling for optimal pedaling efficiency and power transfer.

Tailored zonal cushioning: The evolution of digital 3D printing has allowed us to develop a new saddle without the constraints or limitations imposed by traditional production methods and materials. The Adaptive saddle padding is crafted by Carbon® using their revolutionary Digital Light Synthesis™ technology. DLS is an additive manufacturing process which uses digital ultraviolet light projection, oxygen permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.

Lab tested, road proven: Using Carbon® technology, biomechanics and engineers have an unprecedented possibility: to design and manufacture multiple functional zones within the saddle, tuning each of them separately for specific mechanical properties. Each of these key functional zones is engineered for a distinctive cushioning and mechanical response, joined together progressively and seamlessly in the same padding. The result? A 60% reduction in peak pressure through improved weight distribution for increased comfort across the entire saddle surface.

Power transfer & pressure relief: Antares is a low-profile saddle with a tapered transition from nose to wing that helps riders deliver efficient pedaling in every riding position.

The specific 3D-printed padding developed for Antares provides a responsive, race-ready feeling to better connect rider and bike. Thanks to the unique capabilities of this technology, we are able to design a padding that incorporates a softer central functional zone instead of a traditional cut-out to distribute a rider’s weight more evenly for better pressure relief and improved comfort on longer rides, all while keeping the typical performance feeling of Antares.

No matter if you’re attacking a climb or holding the tempo on flat terrain, this saddle is designed to support you. Moving fore and aft has een made easier by a flatter, slightly wider nose that acts as an optimal base from which to produce power.
