Great Saddle - But I Got A Different Version in the Box!

I ordered the Antares R3 Versus Evo, but Bike Tires Direct sent the R3 Open version instead. Both work the same and are very comfortable for me so I saw no need to send it back.

I bought this saddle as a replacement for my Sella San Marco Regale that I've been using on bikes for over 20 years. I wanted to get something of a similar shape and size as well as with some pressure relief. This saddle fits the bill.

i average between 250 and 300 miles per week with rides between 45 and 100 miles. The saddle is comfortable and allows for changes in position. I especially like the give of the wings when climbing as you can put down the power for long periods without having to get out of the saddle.

I would definitely recommend this saddle to folks looking for a Regale replacement, and would encourage everyone to take a look at the Fizik site to determine which saddle concept is right for them.

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.

Excellent product excellent seller

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!
