A short saddle long on comfort
TEMPO ARGO R1 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.
Sitting atop two stiff carbon rails is a nylon shell reinforced with ride-compliant carbon. On the edges: Wing Flex carbon edges that bend with the rider during the power stroke, increasing comfort and promoting an efficient sitting position.
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 used on the brand's racing saddles, providing more long-distance comfort.
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.
