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!
So I had a Specialized Romin Evo Pro that I was fitted for, which at the time felt like a good saddle, but I didnt feel like it was a great saddle. So I had a bad crash and the seat got a little torn up, but still worked, but always want to replace it. So I saw this saddle on GCN so decided to take the plunge. Went on the Fizik website and entered in the information and was told this saddle is best fit for me. Ordered this saddle and wow is this saddle way more comfortable. Very impressed with the quality and fit.
