Description

Argo For All Roads

The evolution of digital 3D printing has allowed Fizik to develop the Vento Argo R3 Adaptive Saddle, a new generation of saddle without the constraints or limitations imposed by traditional production methods and materials. The Adaptive saddle padding is crafted by Carbon using their revolutionary Digital Light Synthesis technology. DLS is an additive manufacturing process which uses digital ultraviolet light projection, oxygen-permeable optics and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.

Using Carbon technology, biomechanics and engineers have an unprecedented possibility: to design and manufacture multiple functional zones within the saddle, tuning each of them separately for specific mechanical properties. Each of these key functional zones is engineered for a distinctive cushioning and mechanical response, joined together progressively and seamlessly in the same padding. The result? A 60% reduction in peak pressure through improved weight distribution for increased comfort across the entire saddle surface.

Features:

  • Adaptive Carbon Digital Light Synthesis 3D-printing technology
  • Seamlessly engineered zonal cushioning
  • Short-nosed saddle that encourages stability and relieves pressure on soft tissue
  • Ride-compliant, carbon-reinforced nylon shell and a hollow Kium rail system
  • Available in 140 or 150mm width options
  • Length: 265mm
  • Width: 140, 150mm
  • Height at 75 mm width: 45.5mm
  • Length from nose to 75mm width: 114mm
  • Weight: 224, 230g
  • Rail: 7x7mm hollow Kium

Its very good.

I was looking for something for my gravel bike. My current favorite, the discontinued Bontrager Montrose Pro, is great on the road, but on a stiffer frame and a rougher surface, was not ideal. My 148 Montrose fell between the two sizes for the Vento Argo and I opted for the wider size. I wish I could have tried both sizes because it could be a touch too wide. However I have to say - its very comfortable so far. The only reason I would not give it 5 stars is that I just haven't lived with it very long. At first it might seem too soft but ride it. I've found that I'm

comfortable and pressure point free on rides up to 4 hours so far. Very nice.

Lot of grip!

It is a very good product, but there is only one problem: the texture of the material has a lot of grip, this makes the bibs not move in the seat, causing friction between your skin and the bibs. After a few minutes, this friction causes discomfort!

I love this saddle!

This is the 3rd Vento Argo R3 Adaptive Saddle that I have purchased. Originally installed this saddle on my Trek Checkpoint before riding the Katy Trail across Mo. I liked it so much, I also purchased 2 more for my Trek Domane SL6 road bike and my Trek Procaliber hardtail

Very good saddle for long rides

About 2 months of use and this a very good saddle, where you really feel the benefits on long, endurance rides. Installation was easy on my Canyon Endurace and very happy with this purchase. It's also great that BikeTiresDirect offered it a sale price and shipping was really fast. Thanks!

Very comfortable saddle

I have the S-Works Power Mirror Saddle on my other bike and this saddle is every bit as good and is cheaper. I have 500 miles on it so far which is enough miles to get a good feel for how it feels after a long ride. I would recommend this saddle to anyone looking for a good road saddle.

Best saddle I�ve ridden

This is the best saddle I�ve ever ridden. My bottom has never gotten along with cutout saddles. The variable firmness that the 3D printing allows provides the pressure relief I need without having a cutout. It�s a little more expensive but worth it for me. I have not noticed any friction from the mesh-like surface.

Really comfortable saddle

This saddle required some time to position correctly. It widens out faster than my old saddle. Once I got it dialed in, it is very comfortable.

Very comfortable and reasonably priced option.

This is a great addition to my inventory of saddles. I ride on the trainer several days a week and get butt tired after a few days. This makes all the difference in comfort plus the shorter version makes it a proper fit. I did notice the height is a little more than others in the category so a small adjustment was necessary. I would purchase another one for sure.
