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.

Cena nie mała, ale siodło jest tego warte. Super jakość, a najważniejsze, że komfort dużo lepszy niż na poprzednim. Polecam niezdecydowanym.

Love this saddle! This is my second one, as I had an incident with my bike where the rail on my first one got bent. I actually rode on an Aliante for years (one on each bike), but switched up when this model came out. Very comfortable, and I find that power transfer is much better with the Antares. Not that the Aliante was bad at all, just that I find the Antares better. I'm not a fan of cutout saddles, but I find the channel on this one is very comfortable, with padding in just the right places. No issues physically at all. Excellent saddle with rad looks! Easy 5 stars!

This is the forth saddle I have tried on my new Trek Domane SL6. I love the way it looks and more importantly, it is one of the most comfortable saddles I have found so far. Time will tell if this is the saddle I will stick with. I plan to use the Antares Versus Evo R3 on my upcoming ride across Missouri on the Katy Trail.

I purchased a brand new Canyon Ultimate Di2 and it came with one of the worst saddles I’ve ever had the experience of owning which we’ll refer to as Model X from another Italian company. My sit bones measure at around 144 so I purchased the 148. Not only is this coolest looking saddle I’ve ever seen but it’s seemed to have solved most of the numbness problems I’ve had with a poor fitting, too soft or hard saddle. The 3D material really feels good on the backside and needless to say it’s naturally ventilated. I also own the Fizik Open Performance Aliante for my Gravel bike which has slightly more padding and a little wider but just as comfortable! Good job Fizik and thanks for taking care of my backside!

The saddle was not comfortable to me, might work great for other people but not me. The saddle was too soft which caused too much compression of the sit bones.

I got one for my road bike, I now needed one for my gravel bike. Just like all of the reviews have said - this is the world's most comfortable saddle. It is mind-boggling how it as variable firmness in all the right places. This is future now.

Much more padding than expected, quite comfortable overall. The cushioning is more dense in the middle even though the material looks the same everywhere. Overall it seems like a great all-around saddle, although I've never compared it with other fizik or other top-of-the-line saddles, as I mostly wanted to try the adaptive material. Material looks unchanged after 75km, I expect little change over time as the "rubber" seems pretty durable, but we'll see after 7500km. Overall very pleased, I like the way it looks and feels, and I look forward to other saddles with adaptive or an entirely new technology.

Habitué de l'ancienne aliante, la nouvelle ne me convenait plus , trop raide et glissante. Cette antares adaptiv, bien que ferme, est très confortable, ne glisse pas et j'ai trouvé tout de suite ma position. Reste à tester sur de plus longues sorties et apprécier la durabilité

This is the second Adaptive saddle I've purchase. They're perfect for Gravel and endurance rides. Superior support and just a touch of suspension. I'm not a weight weenie, but I'd surely buy one with chrome-moly rails for my lesser used bicycles.

I find a seat. Comfortable. Here is why. The underlying plastic thin base is exposed at the most posterior portion and at the side edges sitting down when can feel those edges as the 3-D part compresses. Only the most posterior 3-D part is very compressible which seems to allow for pressure to be applied to the thin plastic base which is actually uncomfortable. More interior and centrally to 3-D part is much more firm and not very compressible. On occasion setting a little more vertical the posterior Exposed plastic part becomes the part you’re actually sitting on.

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.

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.
