Fizik Tempo Argo R3 Road Bike Saddle
An endurance bike saddle with a ride-compliant carbon reinforced nylon shell and Kium hollow rail and a progressive cushioning, with lower compression modulus. 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 Fizik's 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.
Featuring Wingflex, the Tempo Argo R3 is designed to flex at the edges, adapting to riders’ inner leg movements while maintaining even weight distribution across the entire saddle.
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.

Tested the saddle this morning for around 42km, so far so good but still need a few more rides to get used to it.
