As beautiful saddles go there's not much to rival the Fizik's Antares, in my eyes at least.



The trouble is my backside doesn't agree, so when the Italians started to offer the Antares in Versus, the sort with a pressure-relieving groove, I jumped at the chance.

It didn't take 100 miles to discover that while it's a worthwhile step forwards, it's more of a race saddle than an all day-er.

Of course saddles are very subjective but for me the groove just isn't deep enough.
