The Fizik Antares is an excellent high end racing saddle. At 201g it is close to being the lightest saddle in our test group, but gives up nothing when it comes to durability. It is a flat, firm saddle that provides a solid platform for efficient power transfer. The Specialized Phenom Expert, winner of our Editors' Choice Award, received higher marks in both comfort, and versatility. The Antares has slightly less padding than the Phenom, which decreases its comfort on long rides. The Antares also lacks the rubber scuff guards that the Phenom employs, making it slightly less suited to off-road abuse. However, when it comes to performance and power transfer, the Antares shines. If the high price turns you off, consider our Best Buy Award winner, the WTB Speed. The Speed doesn't offer the performance or feathery weight of the Antares, but it is a great saddle at a very competitive price.
