VS X models are for riders who want a fi’zi:k saddle with a relief zone. This is a solid-base saddle with a 20mm-deep ergonomic channel spanning its entire length, set between two specifically-formulated double injections of foam.
The Antares VS X Braided’s carbon braided rail reduces weight and increases saddle stiffness.
Antares VS X is for The Chameleon: Medium Spine.
If you have an intermediate degree of spinal flexibility (approximately 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders’ width apart), you are a chameleon. Your degree of spinal flexibility helps you so far, before you need to rotate your pelvis slightly to achieve fully the performance position.
You will benefit from the increased width and slight curvature of the Antares shape.
Provided this saddle’s width isn’t too narrow for them, some women may find this model comfortable due to the presence of the relief channel.
