A ride-compliant, gravel-specific saddle with a short-nose design and generous ischial support for improved stability.

fizik – Gravel Saddle Terra Argo X1

GREATER STABILITY

Where a traditional saddle shape encourages riders to shift their position frequently for better leverage, the Argo puts riders in a more planted position, making for greater stability and better weight distribution. The Terra Argo’s short length allows riders to sit further forward without placing undue pressure on sensitive areas. It also features an ergonomic cut-out that was developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts.

GRAVEL SPECIFIC SADDLE

The Argo is our most versatile saddle shape, with each version suited to different riding styles. As the gravel-specific option, the Terra Argo has been engineered with a compliant shell to offer a certain degree of flexibility. This controlled elasticity absorbs road chatter and vibrations, delivering the comfort needed for long distance riding over unpaved roads.

STABILITY AND RESPONSIVENESS

To better support the Terra Argo’s flexible shell, we used our closed-loop Mobius rail system for increased structural stability and responsiveness. The Terra Argo features a waved profile to provide the lower-back support necessary for long rides and to help riders hold their position while climbing on loose terrain. The same goes for the dropped-nose design which allows riders to rotate their pelvis while pushing forward on the nose for better traction and power transfer.

LONG DISTANCE COMFORT

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.

Performs exactly as described--carbon rails reduce road chatter, cutout offers pressure relief, and progressive padding contributes to ride comfort on country roads and gravel trails. Wave design keeps rider from sliding and provides support for acceleration and climbing. After 300 miles, I can report no saddle fatigue or soreness on rides between 30-40 miles. Wider than my Arionne (one of the best saddles ever) with 31,000 miles on it and the fact that only the 160mm was available at time of purchase, the X1 may need a longer period to become accustomed to the broader beam. My one quibble with this exceptionally designed and manufactured Italian saddle is the synthetic cover. I have no doubt that the material was chosen for many good reasons; however, it fails miserably on one count--it has zero moisture wicking capacity. This leaves all accumulated sweat to saturate both shorts and chamois which may contribute to chafing on longer rides in humid climates. While the move away from leather may be important for sustainability, there is still room for improvement in the area of cover fabric.

I purchased this saddle to replace the stock Fabric “roadie” saddle I got with my Cannondale Topstone 2. The Argo is 100g lighter and way more comfortable. I can ride over 2hrs without needing padded shorts. Argo shape allows me to sit more stable and the shorter nose and the central channel avoid pressures on the perineal area. 5 stars. Setup was quite easy but I’m looking forward to get a bike fit to fine tune saddle height and position. I ride mostly on gravel and forest roads in southern Finland.
