A versatile short-nose design gravel specific saddle with a combination of a ride-compliant, carbon reinforced nylon shell and a carbon rail, providing generous ischial support for improved stability.
GREATER STABILITY Where a traditional saddle shape 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 and input from medical experts.
GRAVEL SPECIFIC SADDLE The Argo is a 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.
STABILITY AND RESPONSIVENESS To better support the Terra Argo’s flexible shell, a closed-loop Mobius rail system is used for increased structural stability and responsiveness. The Terra Argo features a waved profile to provide the lower-back support necessary for long rides and to help riders hold their position while 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.
LONG DISTANCE COMFORT 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 racing saddles, providing more long-distance comfort.
UNISEX: A note on unisex compatibility; the Fizik Terra Argo isn't designated women's specific but the shape and design of this saddle naturally suits most female anatomies. The short nose relieves pressure on the delicate tissue areas and the widths work well with wider sit bones, which women on average generally tend to have.
