ANTARES VERSUS EVO 00 ADAPTIVE is a performance cycling saddle with a revolutionary 3d printed padding offering seamlessly engineered zonal cushioning.
A 3D printed padding
The evolution of digital 3D printing allowed us to develop a new saddle without the constraints or limitations imposed by traditional production methods and materials. The Adaptive saddle's padding is crafted by Carbon using its 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.
Tailored zonal cushioning
Using Carbon technology, biomechanists 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 with a distinctive cushioning and mechanical response, joined together progressively and seamlessly in the same padding.
Lab tested, road proven
Professional and amateur cyclists alike were tested in both the fizik labs and on the road. During each development phase, every iteration was carefully tested, with a great focus put on understanding how pressure patterns change according to different bike geometries, riding positions, and riding styles.
From an idea, directly to scalable production
Thanks to this one-of-its-kind combination of process and material, we’ve been given the chance to develop a product five times faster, creating and field-testing hundreds of iterations. Being applicable to mass production, this technology completely remaps the traditional manufacturing process, accelerating and leaping over all intermediate phases.
The Adaptive saddle is very easy to clean. For even the filthiest road muck, you need simply hose it off with water. Whatever gets in, gets washed out. To test this, we’ve put it through the most severe tests, following strict protocols: simulating accelerated weathering, UV-aging and wear resistance.
Adaptive emerged from fizik’s ConceptsTM initiative – a cross-disciplinary collaboration of leading industry experts and academics, putting fizik at the forefront of cycling innovation.
ConceptsTM is a mark of excellence, reserved for fizik's best, most innovative products.
