Fizik Adaptive 3D-printed padding is finally expanding to the Argo family, creating the perfect match for those who want exceptional, long-lasting comfort on a versatile platform that provides both stability and balance.

 
 

3D-printed padding

The evolution of digital 3D printing has allowed us to develop a new saddle without the constraints or limitations imposed by traditional production methods and materials. The Adaptive saddle padding is crafted by Carbon using their revolutionary Digital Light Synthesis technology. DLS is an additive manufacturing process which uses digital ultraviolet light projection, oxygen permeable optics and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.

 
 
fizik-vento-argo-adaptive-R3-versatile-lightweight-racing-saddle

Tailored zonal cushioning

Using Carbon technology, biomechanics and engineers have an unprecedented possibility: to design and manufacture multiple functional zones within the saddle, tuning each of them separately for specific mechanical properties. Each of these key functional zones is engineered for a distinctive cushioning and mechanical response, joined together progressively and seamlessly in the same padding. The result? A 60% reduction in peak pressure through improved weight distribution for increased comfort across the entire saddle surface.

 
 

Argo for all roads

Our most versatile saddle shape, Argo is at home on a variety of bike and surface types. Whether rolling on smooth tarmac or navigating technical terrain, Argo is engineered to help riders find a better posture, putting them in a more planted position for greater stability and improved weight distribution. Additionally, the shorter, drop-nose design provides superior support when adopting a powerful, aerodynamic pedaling position.

Design, test, ride

To develop the ideal Adaptive comfort zones, we studied the various riding positions and pressure points of professional cyclists and amateur riders alike, both in the fizik labs and out on open roads, gravel tracks and trails. During each development phase, new iterations were carefully tested with great focus put on understanding how pressure patterns change according to different bike geometries, riding positions, and surface types.

 
 

Long-lasting performance

The saddle is very easy to clean. Even with the filthiest road muck, gravel dust, or trail spray, all you need to do is simply hose it off with water. Whatever gets in, comes out. We’ve put it through the most severe tests, simulating accelerated weathering, UV aging and wear resistance by following strict protocols.

I’ve only ridden my Argo R3 for a week. Looks cool and the comfort / performance seems ok but it’s too early to tell if the extra cost (my previous saddle was $40) was worth it.

I've only taken this on one ride so far; a 100km climbing route. Overall it feels similar in shape to the standard Vento Argo R1. The Adaptive technology is quite neat to feel and look at. There are zones that are softer and harder depending on where you are sitting. I had been struggling with pain on my sit bones lately on my usual saddle. Moving to the Vento Argo Adaptive solved the issue and was comfortable over a 4 hour ride. I also have the standard Vento Argo on another bike in the same size; the Adaptive version can feel narrower at times depending on where you sit.

Great saddle. I switched from the non-adaptive version of this saddle and loved it but this is superior in comfort.

Saddle is amazing! Taken it on gravel rides as well as road rides. I thought the 3D printed saddle would be a gimmick but it's the most comfortable saddle I've ridden. Highly recommend if you're in the market for a saddle.

My expectations may have been too high after riding the Temp argo R5 which had a great shape and pretty good comfort. The short distance for rail mounting can be an issue. The Vento Argo R3 adaptive was comfy, but the cushioning in the sit bone area wasn't as good as near the center of the saddle and the length is just a little bit too short for making small adjustments fore and aft. Seems well made, it just wasn't for me, especially considering the cost to benefit ratio.

- great mix between support and softness - very good texture (not too sticky and not slippery, even when wet) - imo overall way better than vento argo and tempo (both didn't work for me)

The 3D material is the next step more comfortable than the solid surface Argo. I like the short road saddles from Fizik. The 3D material is slightly grabbier than the solid, so moving around is less easy.

I was skeptical at first of the hype surrounding 3D printed saddles, but after 400 mi, this is the most comfortable saddle I’ve ever had. Buying two more for my trainer bike and MTB.

La sella, oltre ad essere esteticamente di una bellezza unica, risulta molto comoda, grazie alla sua stabilità ed elasticità che si percepisce maggiormente su percorsi sconnessi e sterrati!

Saddle quality looks fantastic! My first ride on the saddle was not what i was expecting. Saddle felt stiff and i was still getting sore in the same spot i usually do on my old saddle. In other words, it felt no different. Hopefully it just needs a breakin period.

I've been using the fizik argo tempo saddle a while & it was an improvement over the Sellas I was using. The Vento Argo R3 Adaptive is another improvement. Similar feel to the argo tempo, but reduces pressure points enough to reduce saddle sores/pain.
