Fizik Argo Terra range provides a ride-compliant, gravel-specific saddle with a short-nose design and generous ischial support for improved stability.
Where a traditional saddle encourages riders to shift their position frequently for better leverage, the Argo puts riders in a more planted position, making for greater stability and better weight distribution. The Terra Argo's short length allows riders to sit further forward without placing undue pressure on sensitive areas. It also features an ergonomic cut-out that was developed using detailed pressure analysis from medical experts.
The Argo is fizik's most versatile saddle shape, with each version suited to different riding styles. As the gravel-specific option, the Terra Argo has been engineered with a compliant shell to offer a certain degree of flexibility. This controlled elasticity absorbs road chatter and vibrations, delivering the comfort needed for long distance riding over unpaved roads.
To better support the Terra Argo's flexible shell, fizik use a closed-loop mobius rail system for increased structural stability and responsiveness. The Terra Argo features a waved profile to provide the lower-back support necessary for long rides and help riders to hold their position whilst climbing on loose terrain. The same goes for the dropped nose design which allows riders to rotate their pelvis while pushing forward on the nose for better traction and power transfer. The padding is made from fizik's proprietary Type-2 foam formulation, slightly thicker around the ischial bones area to support a more upright riding posture. The cushioning is slightly softer and more progressive than the type used on fizik's racing saddles, providing more long-distance comfort.
