A comfortable ride doesn't have to come with a weight penalty.
The Antares line of saddles has already become incredibly popular, blending of the best features of the Fizik Arione and Aliante models. Now Fizik has improved the Antares design even more with the 00 carbon braided saddle. Their sponsored riders asked for a stiffer and lighter saddle with Wing Flex and that is just what Fizik delivered. The shell is made of carbon fiber with a foam core an incredibly light and stiff saddle at just 135 grams. Wing Flex uses ribs of elastomers in the thigh contact area which actually mold to the riders body and also provide additional give for greater pedaling efficiency and comfort without compromising support. Microtex cover is durable, breathable, water resistant, washable and lighter than leather. Braided carbon rails round out the impressive package thanks to their lightness, strength and vibration dampening.
The Antares 00 Braided is available in Black or White. Its actual weight is 137 grams.

I Have owned 4 Fizik saddles Prior to this one. The first was the original Arione which was great. Then came the Arione CX which I felt could not be improved on. Then I got the Antares with Kium rails and I thought, this is it! I tried the carbon rail Antares for a while and it was highly uncomfortable I was extremmely dissappointed with it. Weird considering that it is the same shape as the Kium rail. Needless to say I was wary about trying the Antares 00 with Carbon rail. However...wow! The saddle is incredibly light! The wing flex seems to solve the problem that the standard carbon rail had in relation to comfort. It is almost like the saddle was already broken in when I installed it and leveled it out. I took it for a test ride and It was just as comfortable as my Antares with Kium rail that had about 2500 miles on it. I did feel that it smoothed out road buzz better than the Kium rail. Awesome saddle, I highly recommend it!
