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.

The saddle is extremely comfortable without being overly soft. I replaced my 5 year old Antares with this and loved it the first ride. I have only rides on the trainer so far. My only concern in real life riding maybe that it is grippy. It may make it difficult to make subtle movements to positions.

Non posso ancora giudicare in quanto devo ancora provarla. Posso giudicare solo l'estetica e l'aspetto qualitattivo

A great product. Excellent quality and workmanship. The total packaging was also very top-notch. The overall impression is very high end but then again, this is not a cheap saddle. The different zones are nice but I am still trying to find my spot. I've been on it for 200 km so far and still making minor tweaks. The back of the saddle has a small rise so it is not exactly flat as it was explained to me but not too much to be uncomfortable for me. Currently, I am using it on my indoor trainer set up and this is a harder test than to be outside because there are sessions where I am on the saddle for 2 hours straight so I am pretty sure this saddle will perform wonderfully come spring.

Waited to get a few hundred miles on this before I wrote a review. Really comfy saddle. Reminds me of a very firm memory foam. Replaced an aging Antares, which is my go to saddle and on almost every bike, and the 3D printed version is really the best.

I'm a fairly large rider and until recently didn't put much thought in my saddle, assuming they all hurt for a bit, then you get used it. Maybe since I'm no longer in my 20s, I decided to grab a couple saddles to try out, and sell the ones that didn't make the cut. Well, the Antares Versus Evo R3 Adaptive (why is the name so long?) is the saddle that I kept coming back to, and has now earned permanent status on my bike. It's light, comfortable, and I mostly forget it's there when I'm riding outdoors. The only negative I have, is that on the indoor trainer, it was much less comfortable. While none of the other saddles faired any better, this saddle in particular exhibited unusual friction that was specific to the R3. I suspect the 3d printed weave and lack of bike sway are the culprits. Time will tell if this causes additional bib wear or (God forbid) saddle sores - but I doubt it. For right now, I'm giving a full 5 stars because this really is an insanely comfortable saddle. If I start to noticed additional wear on my bibs, then I'd have to drop it a star or two.

Excellent saddle. I ride a lot and this is the most comfortable saddle I've had. Took it for 100 miles on its 2nd ride. Almost no numbness, very comfortable throughout the entire ride. I already ordered a 2nd for another bike.

A true game changer. Comfort is best ever experienced. At first it feels a bit odd to sit on the saddle. But at the same time it also feels extremely great. I think this is because you sit much more on sitbones, which is due to the structure. So much more support, which totally eliminates hot spots. Super comfortable and highly recommended.
