Short-nose = greater comfort in aggressive riding positions.
fizik's TEMPO ARGO R5 is a performance racing saddle with a short-nose design that improves stability and allows for a more aggressive, aero riding position.
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.
Engineered for racing.
It also features an ergonomic cutout that was developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts. Argo is the brand's most versatile saddle shape and each version suits different riding styles. As the racing option, Tempo Argo has been engineered to deliver a riding feel that suits race bikes with aggressive geometry.

Good Quality and Comfortable
I bought this saddle for my wife to use on her full suspension mountain bike. She was complaining about her old Nashbar padded seat ever since we have started riding more. She wanted something flatter and wider and the Fizik R5 seemed to fit the bill. Price was right so I ordered it. I asked her about the saddle and she says it works well. She was surprised that it was not as padded as the old saddle, but was more comfortable. No complaints of pain. Mission accomplished. As with most stuff Fizik makes, it's good quality and there is attention to detail. Highly recommended.
