A short saddle long on comfort

TEMPO ARGO R1 is a versatile endurance road saddle with a short-nose design and generous ischial support that encourages stability.

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. It also features an ergonomic cutout that was developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts.

Sitting atop two stiff carbon rails is a nylon shell reinforced with ride-compliant carbon. On the edges: Wing Flex carbon edges that bend with the rider during the power stroke, increasing comfort and promoting an efficient sitting position.

The padding is made from fizik's proprietary Type 2 foam formulation, slightly thicker around the ischial sit bones area to support a more upright riding posture. The cushioning is slightly softer and more progressive than the type used on the brand's racing saddles, providing more long-distance comfort.

As the endurance riding option, Tempo Argo has been engineered to deliver a riding feel that suits the balanced geometry of today's all-purpose road machines.

Features & Specs:

  • Argo: versatile short-nose saddle that encourages stability and relieves pressure on soft tissue area
  • R1: a combination of a ride-compliant carbon reinforced nylon shell and a highly stiff carbon rail
  • Wingflex: the shell's side edges flex and adapt to rider's inner leg movement
  • Type 2 foam: progressive cushioning, with lower compression modulus
  • Length: 260 mm
  • Width: 150 mm or 160 mm
  • Weight: 195 g or 202 g
  • Height at 75mm width: 43 mm
  • Length from nose to 75mm width: 103 mm
  • Rail: 10x7 mm

Thanks to WesternBikeWorks for helping me find the right size. I initially ordered the 150 and it was a hair too wide. After getting it exchanged for the 140, life is good. I've already put about 10 hours in on the 140 and once I got used to the sweetspot, it's a great seat. I've noticed it's way more comfortable relative to my old Specialized Romin Evo, when I'm putting miles down in the drops.

I had tried several different saddles in the last few years. I had a Forte classic but went away from it because it made me sore on longer rides. I primarily used a Serfas Dorado from REI which was very comfortable, but tended to rub my inner thighs, was a little heavy, and didn't really allow for great power transfer I think.

I then tried a Fizik Antares R3 Saddle but it gave me a bad headache and sent me to the chiropractor due to the super stiff ride after only 20 miles. Apparently every bump in the road went directly to my head / neck. I have avg to slightly larger sit bone width so a wider saddle is critical for me.

I decided to spring for the Tempo Argo R1 and absolutely love it. Two or three days after getting beat up on the Antares R3, I was able to do back-to-back 50 mile rides on the Tempo Argo with no pain whatsoever. Felt great and didn't even really notice it (which is the goal). Normally I'd start squirming in my seat around the 35-40 mile mark. It is wide enough to give me more support laterally, but narrow enough in the front so it doesn't rub my thighs. So it fits me perfectly. The weight is great too.

It does have different shape to the rails since they're oval and not round. So reviews I read prior to purchasing cautioned about it not fitting all rails. Luckily it fit my Fuji Altamira stock rails just fine. So it's worth checking if you can support oval rails, but otherwise it's a great upgrade and I'm looking forward to putting more miles on it next year.

For size reference, I'm very athletic, 5'8", 155lbs, and in my 40's. I did 2,000+ miles this year so I'm no stranger to time in the saddle. The extra $$$ for the Tempo Argo is well worth it for the time I spend sitting on it. It's hard to find a slightly wider saddle but if you need something a little wider, then this is well worth a try!
