Fizik took the highly successful Antares model and found a few ways to make it better. At the suggestion of Liquigas rider, Ivan Basso, Fizik added wing flex - meaning the edges of the saddle have a bit of give - to help with a smooth and powerful pedaling action. Weight was reduced to a super low 134 grams with foam core padding that also provides more cushioning than other saddles in this weight class. Though lighter, the foam core of the OO also delivers a stiffer base allowing strong riders extra support for high-wattage efforts.
The Fizik Antares 00 fills the gap between Fizik's most popular saddles, the Aliante and the Arione. The Antares 00 is flat just like the Arione, but is a little wider like the Aliante--offering more support for the sit bones. The Antares 00 also has a slightly wider nose and thin yet comfortable padding to provide a cushioned feel. Its light 134 gram weight and lightweight braided carbon rails make it a great choice for a rider seeking quality, comfort, and super light weight.
