Earlier this fall fi’zi:k revamped their three core road bike saddles – the Arione, Aliante & Antares. They added more variation to each, most notably the option for deep relief channels or open pressure relief cutouts, while retaining the same popular shapes & profiles. Now the R3 Open saddles each get an affordable white limited edition version to lighten up your bike this winter.

Fizik limited edition R3 Open White road bike saddles

Pretty much anytime we see ‘limited edition’, it means ‘high price’. But Fizik actually wanted regular cyclists to be able to afford these saddles. So the Open White series comes in at the R3 level which retails for $149/139€. They use Fizik’s performance carbon-reinforced nylon shell and k:ium metal alloy rails. That puts the saddles at weights from 215g for the Antares R3 Open, to 230g for the Arione R3 Open & 235g for the Aliante R3 Open.

All three Open White road saddles feature Fizik’s new anatomic cut-out shape to eliminate  saddle-induced numbness. While the white design with the extended black graphics makes the cutout seem rather small, the small actual hole is joined by a long & deep angular cutout that should get rid of any perineal contact.

The limited edition Open White saddles are available direct from Fizik. They come in Regular versions and the Large that add 9-12mm of width depending on the saddle.

It would be nice if at least one of their saddles caught up to 2017, preferably the Antares… We want an actual wide nose (like the Pro Stealth, but not as wide as SMP) and a 155mm width option.

The Antares has the widest nose of any of the three pictured.
