Description

Description

The Fizik Tempo Argo R5 road bike saddle has been developed particularly for endurance riding. It is extra comfortable, so that your rear end will still feel great after a few hours on your bike!
The saddle has a modern, short design. This design, combined with the ergonomically shaped cutout, ensures that pressure on the sensitive parts is further reduced. The padding is also extra comfortable to prevent pain around the seat bones.
The saddle shell is made of carbon reinforced nylon, which creates an excellent price-quality ratio. The saddle will also last longer because this reinforced nylon makes it less likely to deform. The sides of the shell have been made very flexible with Fizik's ‘Wingflex Technology’, which allows your legs to make better pedalling movements. Finally, the aluminium saddle rails reduce the saddle’s weight, ensuring that you’re not hauling too much weight around!

Saddle shape
This saddle has a round back which makes it very suitable for people who move and swing their hips a lot while cycling. The round saddle shape gives them more freedom of movement than a flat back saddle.

Agility
This is an S-shape saddle, which means that it is raised at the back and lowered in the middle. This S-shape helps people who are not flexible in the spine to sit in a sporty cycling position. This has to do with the pelvic tilt - someone who is not flexible in the spine has more difficulty tilting the pelvis.

Cutout
This saddle has a cutout and provides pressure relief for people who quickly experience pressure on the rear end.

Initially impressed

- David 15 March 2021

Looking for a saddle with a little more support (enduring problems with prostatitis/ chronic pelvic pain). Hopefully this will help.

Pros & Cons

Good sit bone support
Stability whilst riding

5 / 5

Great value saddle.

- Daniel 12 March 2021

An excellent, competitively-priced saddle. Apart from the minimal weight difference, this is better VFM than the R3, which I also ride.

Highly recommended

- Alex 13 January 2021

I used to use Shimano Pro Stealth for my main bike, But I decided to try a new saddle for my 2nd bike. This was delivered few days before my trip to Mallorca over the Christmas. And I decided to take this even without trying. I had it mounted on rented road bike and wow!!! it was so comfy from the day 1. Most saddles I tried beforerequired few days of breaking in, but this was an instant comfort. Even with rides over 100km on the second day, there was no discomfort whatsoever. Back from holiday, this is on my main bike now. Compared to Pro Stealth, this is better on longer distances. Pro Stealth is comfier with sitting on the nose. Overall, very happy.

Pros & Cons

comfy

4 / 5

Very good!

- RiP 21 December 2020

Initial impressions are very good, not used yet on rides over 2 hours, but I like it very much. Hard (in a good way) and very suportive, I'm enjoying its shape very much. This model will go to my gravel bike and I already have plans to order the R3 model for my road bike.
