Bicycle accessories manufacturer fi’zi:k has introduced Argo Adaptive, an all-new 3D printed saddle that will be presented exclusively at the Sea Otter Classic between 07-10 April 2022. Utilizing Carbon DLS 3D printed “digital-padding”, the new saddle expands the Argo family and joins the best-selling Antares Versus Evo within the fi’zi:k Adaptive range.

The Argo Adaptive combines the unique Carbon 3D printing technology with fi’zi:k’s decades of saddle knowledge. fi’zi:k’s extensive saddle pressure mapping data works in conjunction with the Carbon design process and Design Engine Pro, creating a seamlessly engineered ‘zonal cushioning’. The unique 3D printed lattice structure is tuned for different loading patterns across the whole saddle. The result is a shape optimized for varying postures and sit bone positions.

Featuring tailored zonal cushioning, reduced peak pressure for long lasting comfort and Argo shape offering greater stability and weight distribution, the fi’zi:k Argo Adaptive R1 with carbon rails will be available in 140mm (190g) and 150mm (196g) and will be priced at €299 | £299 | $299. The fi’zi:k Argo Adaptive R3 with K:ium alloy rails will be available in 140mm (224g) and 150mm (230g) and will be priced at €259 | £259 | $259.

Originally developed in partnership with bike fitting guru Phil Burt, the Argo saddle offers a versatile short-nosed design encouraging stability and relieving pressure on soft tissue, adding to increased power output and allowing riders to become more aerodynamic. Where a traditional saddle shape encourages riders to shift their position frequently, the new Argo Adaptive puts the rider in a planted position, offering greater stability, comfort and weight distribution.

In combination with Carbon’s digitally produced padding, the Argo Adaptive creates the perfect platform for those who want exceptional, long-lasting comfort on a versatile saddle that provides both stability and balance.

The Argo Adaptive R1 and the Argo Adaptive R3 will be available to consumers at the end of April 2022.
