TEMPO ARGO R3 is a versatile endurance road saddle with a short-nosed design and generous ischial support that encourages stability.


Where a traditional saddle shape encourages riders to shift their position frequently for better leverage, Argo puts the rider in a more planted position, making for greater stability and better weight distribution.


Argo is our most versatile saddle shape and each version suits different riding styles. As the endurance riding option, Tempo Argo has been engineered to deliver a riding feel that suits the balanced geometry of today’s all-purpose road machines.


Tempo Argo’s short length allows the rider to sit further forward without placing undue pressure on sensitive tissues. It also features an ergonomic cutout that was developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts.


The padding is made from fizik’s proprietary Type 2 foam formulation, slightly thicker around the ischial sit bones area to support a more upright riding posture. The cushioning is slightly softer and more progressive than the type we use on our racing saddles, providing more long-distance comfort.



  • Argo: versatile short-nose saddle that encourages stability and relieves pressure on soft tissue area
  • R3: a combination of a ride-compliant carbon reinforced nylon shell and a Kium hollow rail with high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Wingflex: the shell's side edges flex and adapt to rider's inner leg movement
  • Type 2 foam: progressive cushioning, with lower compression modulus

So far I’m very satisfied with the saddle. It’s a huge improvement over my previous saddle (not Fizik) which simply did not fit me. I can’t speak yet to the durability since I’ve only ridden about 100 k but I’m happy with this purchase.

Great saddle for long rides. Finally my sensitive parts doesn't hurt. :-) Compared to the Vento Argo model, softer foam is used, that absorbs shocks well even when driving on broken roads.

Perfetta per me è per il mio utilizzo: per ora 120 km ma fossero stati mille sarebbe lo stesso.

E' la sella che uso nella mia Gravel e che consiglio sempre più a tutti i miei clienti gravellisti e che vogliono stare comodi e pedalare per ore e ore.

Great saddle, have the R1 and R3 on three of my bikes. All day comfort.

Although saddles are very personal, finally I've found one that's comfortable for me. Well made, with good finishes and looks good.

Superb saddle at a competitive price point. Very clean aesthetic!

Für mich leider nicht passend. Total hart und viel zu breit zwischen den Beinen.

Provata per pochi km ma sembra comoda e abbastanza leggera

This has become my go-to saddle in the past couple of years, and it's very hard to beat from a comfort & value perspective. It's light too.

Did not fit my body and was not able to use the product. Was not a workmanship issue, just wrong design for my body. Moved back to my original seat after trying on several rides.

Does everything that the product description said.

Only one ride on it but liking it so far.

Very comfortable and a good purchase. I would recommend this saddle.

Saddle is great. Have ridden over 200k already and a big improvement in comfort compared to my previous saddles.
Verified purchaser | Order code : 91052214
Well made but impossible install it far back enough so I could position my sit bones over the wings. The rails are not long enough for proper positioning. Never had this problem with any seat before.

This is my second fizi:k saddle. I rode my first one for almost a decade and it served me well and comfortably. After I turned 60 I noticed it wasn't as comfortable and I was getting numb where I hadn't been numb before. Time to get a new saddle. At first this saddle felt REALLY hard but after two rides it was perfect and no more numbness! Bravo, fizik:

This is my favorite road bike saddle that I've ever owned. It fits me perfectly. The saddle is much more firm than my previous one but I don't feel pressure points anymore as my sits bones are positioned at the correct points on top of the saddle. The short nose allows me to sit up in a time trial position.

The saddle it self is stiff(requires padded tights) but it has excellent pressure relief channel. Didn't fit me. I would return it but after one ride the rails were scratched.
Verified purchaser | Order code : 82368897
Good design with no soft tissue pressure. Initial impression is it is a little firm on the sit bones but It’s still new to me so will hold off making a final decision.

Sehr angenehm zum Sitzen und macht einen sehr edlen Eindruck

Ahhh... comfort. Only a handful of rides on the saddle but I am already enjoying the benefits. It is on my indoor trainer where I spend 6-10hrs a week. Being a larger rider (105kg), no rubbing or odd spots w the saddle.

Vraiment très confortable, ça change!!!

Early days yet, and saddles take some getting used to but well built (as I expected after having an Antares R3 Verso on my other bike) and seems very comfortable so far.
Verified purchaser | Order code : 74510802
Bought this for my wife who spends about 10 hours a week on her bike - all on the indoor trainer so sits for 97% of the ride. Her old saddle was not only painful but was wearing through. The Tempo Argo R3 has been great. She still has days where she does not feel great and has to stop because of butt pain but much much better than it was. Could have used a little more cushion

I like the saddle and it has partially solved the numbness I used to get on longer rides - I have only done about 1.000 km on it so still adjusting to it.

La selle est plutot bien, mais j'aurais aimé une version avec une petite couche de gel pour plus de moelleux
Verified purchaser | Order code : 68092497
Have only ridden on it 3 times of 12 miles so jurys still out. Seat is comfortable but hard, I am not sure how I will feel on longer rides. Even though it's a short saddle there is still space to move about. Fit and finish good but a little more "bling" would be nice as it is very plain.
Verified purchaser | Order code : 67375248
The saddle very comfy and good quality so far!
Verified purchaser | Order code : 63194843
The saddle is wide enough, but it has high preasure points where my sitbones are, so the saddle becomes uncomfortable
Verified purchaser | Order code : 62502273
Really nice and comfortable saddle. A little bit slippery otherwise would have given 5*

For those unsure of saddle sizing: I was riding a race saddle for about 2 weeks before I gave up after experiencing the worst sit bone pain. I have a very bony bum and was riding a saddle too thin for my sit bone width so was experiencing very unpleasant pressure sores! I am a true 125/130cm sit width but I thought I would take a chance with the Tempo (150cm) after reading reviews that this was brilliant for long rides (I regularly do 120K ) and wanted a wide winged saddle. After a couple rides and really adjusting it to my bum I’m loving this saddle. It’s a little harder than I would have anticipated for a long ride saddle and the slightly aggressive forwards slope required a little adjustment to get right with my TT bars but now I’ve locked it in its brill!

Es increible el cambio con respecto a mi anterior sillin. Parece mentira que sea un producto tan diferente a la norma actual y sin embargo tenga tantos beneficios

Only one ride in. The saddle was comfortable and addressed the numbness I experienced with the previous saddle.

Sella corta e votata principalmente all'endurance. Io l'ho acquistata per provare la tipologia di selle short fit e devo dire che secondo me è una tipologia di selle molto performante. La confezione è molto bella, anche se mancano le informazioni per il posizionamento (almeno il centro anatomico della sella potevano indicarlo o spiegare come trovarlo, cosa in questo tipo di selle non banale). Dopo diverse prove ho trovato una posizione accettabile e la sella si è dimostrata all'inizio abbastanza comoda concedendomi uscite fino a 4 ore abbastanza confortevoli, ma dopo circa 1000 km di utilizzo ha cominciato a crearmi dei dolori nel retro gamba molto fastidiosi, per cui ho preferito sostituirla con una diversa. Trovo strano che vengano prodotte solo le misure con larghezza 150 e 160 mm, secondo me troppi per chi ha una distanza delle ossa ischiatiche sotto agli 11 cm, ma questa è una scelta di progettazione che solo la Fizik potrà spiegare.. Probabile che se la sella fosse stata larga solo 135 mm i dolori che ho accusato non si sarebbero presentati. Comunque la sella è ben fatta e sono sicuro che in molti si potranno trovare molto bene e fare di lei la fedele compagna di uscite. Per me non era quella giusta purtroppo.
