Fizik Antares VS Saddle with 7x9 Carbon Braided Rail, Black
  • Met all expectations, light, padding is good.
  • Overly shaped and no relief channel, but well made and reasonably comfortable.
  • This is a comfortable, light saddle.
  • It is well made and uses quality materials throughout, but it did not come close to fitting me.
Fizik Arione VS X Carbon Saddle
  • I later got this saddle and instantly, it felt like night and day. I had to adjust it forward than usual, but after that, no problems.
  • I find these seat comfortable. I like the channel and the length.
  • This is one of the best saddles I've used. It is comfortable for long and short distance rides.
  • The carbon versions seem to be a bit firmer but more forgiving than the plastic versio.
  • This saddle is much stiff than any chromoly saddle I've ever ridden probably due to the carbon rails.

What customers say about "Features"
Fizik Antares VS Saddle with 7x9 Carbon Braided Rail, Black
  • This saddle was so right for me, that I bought a second one for using on my old steel MTB for going to work.
  • No fancy carbon rails here, but this saddle is comfortable and is lasting well.
  • After trying several saddles, and almost accepting numbness as an unavoidable side effect of long miles, this saddle is a very welcome change to my rig.
  • In my opinion, this is the perfect saddle for mountain biking.
Fizik Arione VS X Carbon Saddle
  • I live where road are pretty shotty and wanted to dampen some of these road vibarations. This saddle does just that.
  • Great saddle, Fizik saddles are always well designed and made.
  • Brilliant saddle and very comfortable. Perfect for long distance rides but also with a good bib.
  • Excellent saddle for my purpose racing training, not so comfy for slow long rides though.
  • The saddle construction is poor. Also while riding it makes a creaking noise.
