Ordered by Most Relevant First
A few bike fits and neumerous saddles (Specialized Romin, Toupe, Power, Power Arc, Shimano Pro Stealth) I arrived at Fizik Antares R1 Open. All previous saddles caused me pain and sicomfort. Riding was not fun. After reading a research paper on Fizik saddles conducted by Fizik in collaboration with CU Boulder, prompted me to take a chance and buy this Fizik saddle in regular size (142mm). First ride of nearly 3 hours and I am beyond happy with the the shape the padding and the non-slip textured surface....most importantly, no pain!!!! The service and the expediend delivery were a bonus in the whole experience of searching for the right saddle. Thank you Fizik and thank you Westernbikeworks!
