It’s a name that’s appeared in nearly every Grand Tour of the past two decades, earning top podium spots in the Tour de France, the Giro, and the Vuelta over and over again—and it’s only getting better with age. We’re talking about Antares. Since its launch in the early 2000s, our Antares racing saddle has become a fixture beneath the leading athletes in the sport, riders like Chris Froome, Vincenzo Nibali, Alejandro Valverde, Greg Van Avermaet, Wout van Aert—even last year’s TDF winner, Jonas Vingegaard. And now, Antares is back and better than ever. Take your seat at the winner’s circle with the all-new Antares.



As a member of the new generation of Antares saddles, the Antares R1 maintains many iconic design features that made the original one of the most popular amongst leading athletes.



Antares is a low profile saddle with a transition from nose to wing that helps deliver efficient pedaling in every riding positions. 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 been made easier by a flatter, slightly wider nose that acts as an optimal base from which to produce power.



Antares features an ergonomic cutout, developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts, that helps to relieve pressure and facilitate blood flow. Additionally, the low-profile padding has been engineered with a double-density foam, firmer on the ischial bones, softer on the nose, to provide every rider the right support, regardless of riding position, without creating undue pressure.



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 R1 saves weight thanks to a newly designed 7x9 mm carbon rail.

The Vento Anteres R1 is a very comfortable and lightweight saddle that I'm very happy with. I've used it on some long rides and am very satisfied with the comfort

Great saddle. Not as much length to move around as the Arione which was my previous saddle but if you don't move around on the saddle too much to accommodate the change in terrain it is a great racing saddle. It has moderate curvature but enough to notice the difference when sliding fore and aft. Thus when you slide forward it feels like the saddle is tilted upward and the opposite when sliding backward. I guess I'm just use to the flate nature of the Arione which I have ridden almost since it's inception. I chose the R1 over the 00 not to save money but because it has slightly more padding and added only 43g.

Great saddle, much softer where it counts than all other Antares.
