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.

The saddle looks excellent and mounted easily however, due to weather conditions I haven't been able to ride on it yet.

So far, so good - comfortable, fairly light etc. Will wait and see long term since this replaced another Antares Versus EVO due to failure just outside of warranty.

The saddle appears to be made well, I cannot deny that. But the ride was not what everyone raves about. I could not ride longer than 30-40 miles. I could feel the pain sneaking in around mile 20-25 and by the time I was in the 30-40 mile range I literally could not sit anymore. I had to stop my ride and I am accustomed to riding several 50-100 miles rides on a weekly basis. The pain would last into the next day which kept my riding time down for the two weeks I honestly tried to ride the Antares. I was forced to put my Fizik Ariante R3 back on the bike and my rides returned to normal. Unfortunately now I am stuck with a basically brand new saddle I cannot use.

Happy with the saddle. Unhappy with the fact that Fizik doesn't offer the saddlebags with the clip system anymore, even though the system is still present on the saddle ... :-(

The new adaptive technology and Antares saddle has more than met my expectations. Comfort really is that much better than traditional saddle technology and padding. As the miles build, so does the comfort, but it has been a treat from the start; a great sign for many miles to come. Thank you!

The 3-D printed part of the saddle is excellent. Just a few rides so far, but the improvement over my traditional saddles is already clear. The only shortcoming - in appearance more then function - is the plastic base on which the 3D print is formed. It does not have the look and feel of a high quality product. It works to be sure, but the aesthetics leave something to be desired.

Very versatile saddle, the flat surface is transferring power in the right way and leaves enough flexibility for the rider. The 3D printed surface adapts well to your sitting position. Take extra car in positioning the saddle because it is quite long.

After a couple of long rides I can tell you that this saddle fits me perfectly. The first ride with it wasn't that comfortable but now I am use to it and don't have any pain anymore. It's pure magic, surperbe saddle.

Early on - but so far, and from the first ride, fantastic! Replacing an earlier Fizik saddle that lacked the "groove". The transition has been comfortable and seamless. Looking forward to cranking up the miles.

Excellent saddle that is worth the price! Im usually cautious about marketing of new "materials and processes" but the adaptive technology is the real deal. I no longer feel pain or discomfort on my rides and I believe that it has contributed to better form and performance. The shipping from Italy was extremely fast. Extremely satisfied with my purchase!

After years on Argo saddle, I wanted to try this new technology. I use it for road and gravel on the same bike, it's stunning ! Obviously you have to get use to it as the structure as a particular fit. When you're use to it, it becomes comfy af ! And the specific material makes it non-splippery, great bonus feature for muddy gravel ride or rainy road ride !

Can't yet judge for longer rides so far, but I rode the same non-adaptive Antares model before and you can definitely feel a boost in comfort due to the slightly softer cushioning.
