The Antares is 1 of fi'zi:k's 3 Spine Concept Mens Road Saddle shapes. Of these 3, the Antares shape is wide and slightly curved in profile.
Antares R5 is for The Chameleon: Medium Spine.
If you have an intermediate degree of spinal flexibility (approximately 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders' width apart), you are a chameleon. Your degree of spinal flexibility helps you so far, before you need to rotate your pelvis slightly to achieve fully the performance position.
You will benefit from the increased width and slight curvature of the Antares shape.
Shell: Carbon-reinforced nylon with Wing Flex for freedom of thigh movement
Integrated Clip System: Yes

‘Fizik Spine Concept’ is a great guideline for the right saddle choice. It realises that cyclists have varying degrees of flexibility and human flexibility affects riding behaviour in a performance position. So that you can buy with confidence, we offer a Fizik demo programme so that you can try before you buy, subject to a £50 security deposit for one week.
