Fizik Vento Argo R1 Saddle
See our review of the Fizik Tempo Argo HERE.
The Fizik Vento Argo R5 saddle is one of many saddles under the Fizik Argo name. Vento Argo is the Italian brand’s performance-oriented line of short-nosed saddles, and the R3 is Fizik’s high-end short-nose performance saddle. Vento Argo R3 features their Type 1 foam, which is all about reactivity, springiness, and ideal power transfer without the bulk. This is paired with a short-nose shape that places the rider in a planted position by allowing the rider to rotate their hips farther than a standard saddle. Its prodigious center cutout means riders can sit farther forward without excess pressure on sensitive areas.
Fizik Vento Argo R3 utilizes a carbon-reinforced nylon shell and stiff carbon rail. Vento Argo is available in 140mm and 150mm widths and is best suited to aggressive, performance-oriented body positioning.
