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 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 cyclists and amateur riders were tested in both the fizik labs and on the road. During each development phase, every iteration was carefully tested. A great focus has been put on understanding how the 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.

LONG-LASTING PERFORMANCE

The saddle is very easy to clean. Even with the filthiest road muck, all you need to do is simply hose it over with water. Whatever gets in, gets out. We’ve put it through the most severe tests, simulating accelerated weathering, UV aging and wear resistance by following strict protocols.

selle très chère et pas du tout le confort espéré après 3 sorties et 200 kms faits, aucune aide sur le site pour choisir la taille de selle adaptée!!!! sérieusement, pas de mesure de l'écart des ischions et pas d'aide à la commande en fonction de cela, une fois reçue la selle, (hyper rapide grâce à UPS) aucune indication sur le type de montage dans la boite ou sur internet, youtube ou le site Fizik, c'est pas très sérieux pour un équipement haut de gamme ultra cher (inclinaison, hauteur, angle, recul etc...) alors que la concurrence (Specialized pour ne pas les citer) le fait. La selle en elle même est bien faite mais je n'ai pas du tout un confort meilleur, loin de là, ma selle gel précédente qui coute la moitié du prix de celle ci, me parait finalement plus confortable, j'essaye de peaufiner les réglages mais pour l'instant très déçu de son inconfort alors que c'est l'argument de vente numéro 1 de cet article!....

The most comfortable seat I have ever owned. I recently completed an imperial double-century and I have experienced no pelvic pain or numbness. As of now, I cannot give a fair assessment on the saddle's durability as I have only been using the product for over a week. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the Fi'zi:k Antares Versus Evo R1 Adaptive saddle.

I don't have enough seat time yet and need to do some minor adjustments. However, the Antares Versus Evo R1 Adaptive is definitely more comfortable than the Antares it replaces

The saddle is exactly what my riding friends and online reviewers described...very comfortable with good support and the ability to easily slide up or back depending on my preferred position during a climb or on the flats. I was having saddle sore issues with my previous saddle, but no more with my new Fizik!

I replaced my well used Antares of several years with the R1 Adaptive. I was curious about the 3-D printing tech and the feel. So far so good after several stretches of riding. The material seems to be settling things with my body mechanics. You have to like a little rigidity, and no doubt it will not be for everyone.

The saddle is of exceptional quality. I have to ride for 100km this weekend, and this would be the first real test. But fit and quality is superb. I have purchased EVO R1 and I can not think what could be better on 00 model, besides a few grams less weight. I would recommend this saddle and shopping experience to anyone using Antares model, or people who use or would like to try a saddle with mid channel.

Love this saddle. I have it on my OPEN Wide, where I split time pretty evenly between gravel and road (two wheelsets, one bike to rule them all!). Super comfortable for both applications. Very easy to clean via quick hose off. 10/10 would recommend Another thing to note, the purchase process from Fizik was also fantastic. I ordered this saddle on Saturday. It shipped out first thing Monday AM in Italy, and I had it in California, delivered to my door on Wednesday. Very smooth, very quick, very impressed

Love the looks, the tech and the weight. However, I expected it to be more comfortable given the "zone-specific" padding density. I seem to remember the Antares 00 I owned years ago being just as, or even more comfortable and lighter.

Great saddle. Really good combination of comfort and firmness. Takes the bite out of road vibrations. For me, it is much better than S-Works Power with Mirror. I now have two of these for two different bikes - Colnago C64 Dusc and Pinarello Dogma K8s..

Je roule en selle Fizik depuis des années, sur des Aliante. Ayant de plus en plus de douleurs par compression, malgré le confort exceptionnel, j'ai décidé de changer pour passer sur une Antares Versus correspondant mieux à ma morphologie d'après le site Fizik (chameleon). Pour le moment, le confort de cette selle adoptive n'est pas au rendez-vous, même si les douleurs ont disparu. Le canal central est un peu trop ouvert à mon goût.
