Fi'zi:k Antares R3 Tour de France Edition Saddle with Bar Tape
You may have noticed that Italian saddle maestros Fi'zi:k provided their sponsored professionals, such as Team Sky, special-edition reflective saddles at the 2014 Tour de France. Now you, too, can spec your prized road rig with an identical Fi'zi:k Antares R3 Tour de France Edition Saddle. And on top of that, also included in this package is Fi'zi:k Superlight Dual Touch handlebar tape, a level to dial in the saddle angle, all packaged in a special Eiffel Tower-themed box.

The Antares R3 saddle certainly shines bright amongst the realm of saddles. It's made for riders who have average flexibility, but still like to move around on the saddle. It's a long, thinner design that helps you get into different positions depending on how you're riding, and the long, thin nose helps eliminate leg chafing - the Wing Flex shell flexes downward where the inner thigh contacts the saddle, allowing more efficient pedaling and full-range of motion. Reflective panels provide an added element of safety and visibility. Additionally, the K:ium alloy rails are lighter than titanium to shave grams without compromising strength.

The Fi'zi:k Superlight Dual Touch handlebar tape is made from 2mm thick Microtex that ensures superb grip, comfort, and control. The Microtex tape is durable, breathable, and washable to provide a long life on your handlebars.
  • Fiberglass thermoplastic composite shell provides support with optimized stiffness to-weight construction
  • Microtex cover is durable and weather resistant
  • Microtex cover features reflective panels for added visibility
  • K:ium rails provide high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent vibration damping
  • Semi-rounded shape makes it easy to find different comfortable positions
  • Includes Fi'zi:k Superlight Dual Touch handlebar tape (color: black)
  • Includes Spirit Level to assist in achieving the desired saddle angle

    Comments about Fizik Fi'zi:k Antares R3 Tour de France Edition Saddle with Bar Tape:

    I have been thinking of getting a new saddle for a while and when I saw this I jumped on it. I had been to the Fizik website and knew that should fit me well so I took a chance and don't regret it. Its very comfortable and light weight. Saddles are very personal but this is definitely worth a try.

      This is my third Fizik saddle. Two ariones, and now the Antares R3. This saddle is the best fit for me. This saddle does everything right. Oh, and so comfortable. According to Fizik I am a chameleon. They are correct. I will buy again, when I need a new saddle.

      Comments about Fizik Fi'zi:k Antares R3 Tour de France Edition Saddle with Bar Tape:

      I have ridden the saddle and tape 200+ miles and have had minimal wear. There is some very slight wear of the fi'z:k text on the reflective portion of the saddle that has just barely begun to fade to black on the areas with the most contact.This could be from me regularly reposition myself on the saddle, but that's what makes this saddles so wonderful; the saddle has great versatility in riding position while maintaining a level of comfort I find to be above other saddles I have ridden.
      At any rate the wear has been purely esthetic and only slight. No squeaks or creaks.
      The tape is very comfortable, and provides excellent grip on the drops, and mobility on the hoods and tops do to the change in surface texture of the tape. The drops portion of the tape has a foam/rubber texture, while the tops have a kind of leather like texture. This is the first tape I have ever used with this feature. I appreciate it, and will miss it when it comes time to replace the tape, though I doubt it improves my performance enough for it's cost to purchase solo. The tape could be longer, but it's relative to other tapes.
      They are beautiful, and look good on a bike with a lot of black.

          Pulled this out of the box and was not impressed at all. Seemed like an overpriced piece of plastic...however, one 25 mile ride later, I was a believer!! Amazing comfort, and no more saddle discomfort. Worth every penny.

            Comments about Fizik Fi'zi:k Antares R3 Tour de France Edition Saddle with Bar Tape:

            Buying a new saddle is a hazzle. Everybody has a different anatomy and that reflects in the shape of the most appropriate saddle. I was fairly O.K. with my Prologo Scratch Pro,that came with my bike, but on long rides (3-8 hours) I eventually felt uncomfortable. Earlier this year I bought a Cyrano R1 "Chameleon" handlebar based on my riding preferences (according to Fizik also according to my physical make-up), and I LOVE it. So I risked getting the Antares R3 (TdF Edition), which is also part of their "Chameleon" line. I have to say, that it is really good. I rode 53 miles on Sunday and never felt remotely uncomfortable on the saddle. It is not as comfortable as one of the cushy saddles right away, but it never gets awkward for me. It may not work for everyone, but it seems to do the job for me. There is somethig to Fizik's Spine Concept. And, I admit, the color combination of black and reflecticve silver works great with the rest of my bike. Shouldn't be a decision factor, but - alas- I am only human...
