Get stuck in the middle.
The middle ground often gets a bad rap, but with most of us falling somewhere in the median range for flexibility, speed, sit bone width, and size, it can be a great — and comfortable place to ride. Now, we don't mean that you need to skimp, and go for mid-range bikes that don't fit right, or ride in the middle of the pack where you feel cramped with no space to breakaway, but rather, go for the mid width saddle, for riders with medium flexibility with the Fi'zi:k Antares R2 Versus EVO Saddle for support to keep you comfortable for rides that blast past mid-length.
Giving you a saddle to stand on, or rather, sit on, the Antares R1 Versus EVO supports your sit bones for long rides, thanks to its comfort care foam that cradles you and absorbs harsh road chatter for a soft feel. It features a pressure relieving channel in the center to give your most sensitive tissue, ensuring your weight is properly supported across the whole saddle. Much like you've come to know with Fi'zi:k, the Antares R1 Versus EVO is lightweight and flexible, designed with carbon rails and a reinforced carbon-nylon shell that stands up to long and grueling climbs with minimal weight penalty.

My favorite road saddle these days
- I've put it through the wringer
I've been riding this for several months now on top of an ENVE seatpost mounted to an Alchemy Chiron. On balance, this has become my favorite road saddle. This saddle replaced an Arione R1. Compared with that saddle, I like the very slight curvature toward the rear of this Antares saddle. The channel in the middle seems to increase airflow and generally reduces heat. Pressure points have never been a problem for me, which is why it took me a while to try out a saddle with a center channel. I'm happy I did. I find this saddle amazingly comfortable for the weight that it has. The surface is quite smooth and allows for sliding on the saddle with little friction. But I find that it provides enough grip for me to stay put easily when pedaling hard. I also do occasional gravel riding on this saddle and it's served me well for that purpose, too.
