Fizik Tempo Argo R5 Saddle
The Fizik Tempo Argo R5 Saddle amalgamates its advanced design with sophisticated materials to lend performance to the road rider who loves to challenge themselves on the longest rides.
The short, stubby length combines with the generously wide central relief channel to allow the rider to rotate their pelvis further forward without increasing pressure on the perineum for a more powerful pedal stroke and lowered fatigue in the back muscles. The Type-2 foam uses a slightly softer density to improve comfort on the most enduring rides and places extra thickness under the sit bones for extra skeletal cushioning and support.
The base is realised in carbon-reinforced nylon that is lightweight, compliant to be more forgiving over rougher road surfaces and doesn’t deform over time with extended use. Wingflex sides are added to the base to eliminate chafing and irritation of the inner thighs.
