The latest Antares Versus by Fizik reduces the pressure on your flesh on long rides better than its predecessor. Fizik accomplished this by adding a full-length central channel, to its popular saddle, while keeping the flat-topped shape that the Antares is praised for.

The two Antares versions differ from each other in design, but the result effect isn’t too noticeable. The standard Antares is firm and dense, which provides supportive padding whereas, the Antares Versus may seem to have a lower density that immediately absorbs the body weight, thus flattening its appearance.
