Fizik Vento Argo 00 is their lightest short-nose road racing saddle yet

Fizik has introduced its lightest short-nose saddle yet, designed for the aggressive, aero riding position you’ll want to adopt for competitive road racing. The claimed weight? A svelte 134g for the 140mm width version. The full carbon fiber shell and one-piece rail are to thank for the lightweight design. Here’s everything you need to know.

The low-profile, injected EVA padding is said to offer supreme comfort whilst also shaving off precious grams for performance-focused riders.

Fizik has designed the Vento Argo 00 to complement road race bikes with aggressive geometries. The dropped, short-nose design with its ergonomic cut-out section is said to help riders get a better riding posture as the dropped nose supports the pubic ramus when the pelvis rotates forward to add power or to get more aero. That could mean transitioning to a more aggressive position, or even moving from seated to standing for explosive efforts, or adopting a more forward, aerodynamic position for descending.

Available in 140mm width and 150mm width options, the Vento Argo 00 is 265mm long. At 75mm wide, the saddle has a length of 114mm to the nose. It features an ergonomic cut-out to ease pressure in the perineal area, developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts.

The 10mm x 7mm rails, or rail to be exact, is of a unique one-piece design; Fizik call it the Mobeus rail. It is composed of a very stiff high-modulus carbon-fiber optimized for maximum power transfer.

Not totally sold on the short nose saddle trend, but it’s cool that they make a 150 width.

The saddle is 10 mm shorter than the regular Antares. Does that really make the Vento Argo a short nose saddle?
