Fizik Vento Argo R5 Saddle
See our review of the Fizik Tempo Argo HERE.
The Fizik Tempo Argo R5 saddle is one of many saddles under the Fizik Argo name. Tempo Argo is the Italian brand’s endurance-oriented line of short-nosed saddles, and the R5 is Fizik’s value-leading saddle. Tempo Argo R5 features their Type 2 foam, slightly softer and more progressive than the brand’s racing saddles, and oriented toward long-distance comfort and vibration damping. While it’s comfort-oriented status will be a boon to just about any road bike or gravel bike, it is geared toward those looking to ride longer, with a wide center cutout developed by pressure analysis and input from medical experts.
Fizik Tempo Argo R5 utilizes a carbon-reinforced nylon shell and S-Alloy rails. Like most Fizik saddles, it uses their Wingflex design allows the shell’s side edges to flex and follow the rider’s inner leg movements. Tempo Argo is available in 150mm and 160mm widths.
