The optimal mix of strength, support and light weight: the Antares R1 Saddle by Fizik


The shape of the Antares is wide in profile and slightly curved, which is ideal for riders with medium spinal flexibility.
The Antares R1 benefits from improved weight distribution and a host of Fizik technologies, which include a carbon double shell and braided carbon saddle rails for the optimum blend of strength, support and light weight. Wing Flex technology provides more flexibility where the thighs touch the saddle.

Wing Flex™
Wing Flex™ allows the rider more comfort while riding. It doesn't matter if you have wide or rather narrow thighs, because thanks to the movable saddle wings they adapt to your leg movement when pedalling.

I. C. S.
I. C. S. stands for Integrated-Clip-System and enables a completely tool-free mounting and dismounting of saddle bags on I. C. S. compatible saddles.

Spine Concept Evo
Since the introduction of the first Spine Concept, Fizik has conducted intensive studies with professional cyclists and the University of Colorado to better understand how the biomechanics of cycling relate to comfort and performance.
The result is the Spine Concept Evo - an evolution in the connection between rider and machine. Spine Concept Evo also differentiates between three rider types depending on spinal and pelvic flexibility: " Snake" (flexible), " Chameleon" (medium) and " Bull" (rigid). The saddle base model is determined from this. The variables rider weight and riding style are now added to refine the selection and determine the optimal product for you.

Guter Sattel wenn er einem passt. Hatte ein Antares R5 und da er gut passte, habe ich auf den R1 gewechselt. Die Carbon Rails des R1 haben etwas weniger flex und der Sattel ist spürbar härter aber dennoch passend. Das Material zeigt nach 10.000km kaum Abnützungsspuren.

Leider gibt es zwei Kritikpunkte.
1.) Die Wicklung der Rails ist sehr rau was zu verstärkten Abnutzungen (Nähte, Material) an den Hosen führt da die Rails breiter als die Sattelnase sind und die Hose so unvermeindlich daran scheuert.
2.) Die Rails sind am hinteren Ende gesteckt und möglicherweise verklebt. Auf einer Seite bei mir scheint der Kleber nicht mehr zu haften uns es knackt gelegentlich. Das Problem scheint jedoch bei neueren Versionen gelöst zu sein, da auf den aktuellen Bildern ein zusätzlicher "Wulst" an der Steckung zu sehen ist der das wohl besser fixiert.

Knacken soll der Sattel natürlich nicht. Wenn du willst, senden wir ihn gern zur Überprüfung an den Importeur. Kontaktiere dazu einfach kurz unser Service Team.
