TEMPO ARGO R3 is a versatile endurance road saddle with a short-nose 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.

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.

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.

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 is a product of the fizik Concepts programme, a cross-disciplinary collaboration of leading industry experts and academics carrying out research and analysis on technology, design, physiology and bike-fitting in search of ways to improve cycling performance.

The saddle is wide enough, but it has high preasure points where my sitbones are, so the saddle becomes uncomfortable

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.
