Antares Versus Evo R1 Adaptive Saddle
F2070002Regular price $299.99
A 3D printed bike saddle with a revolutionary padding with carbon-reinforced nylon shell and a highly stiff carbon rail (R1).
Performance cycling saddle with a revolutionary 3d printed padding offering seamlessly engineered zonal cushioning.
A 3D PRINTED PADDING
The evolution of digital 3D printing allowed us to develop a new saddle without the constraints or limitations imposed by traditional production methods and materials. The Adaptive saddle padding is crafted by Carbon using its revolutionary Digital Light Synthesis technology. DLS is an additive manufacturing process that uses digital ultraviolet light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.
TAILORED ZONAL CUSHIONING
Using Carbon technology, biomechanists and engineers have an unprecedented possibility: to design and manufacture multiple functional zones within the saddle, tuning each of them separately for specific mechanical properties. Each of these key functional zones is engineered with a distinctive cushioning and mechanical response, joined together progressively and seamlessly in the same padding.
LAB TESTED, ROAD PROVEN
Professional cyclists and amateur riders were tested in both the fizik labs and on the road. During each development phase, every iteration was carefully tested. A great focus has been put on understanding how the pressure patterns change according to different bike geometries, riding positions, and riding styles.
FROM AN IDEA, DIRECTLY TO SCALABLE PRODUCTION
Thanks to this one-of-its-kind combination of process and material, we’ve been given the chance to develop a product five times faster, creating and field-testing hundreds of iterations. Being applicable to mass production, this technology completely remaps the traditional manufacturing process, accelerating and leaping over all intermediate phases.
The saddle is very easy to clean. Even with the filthiest road muck, all you need to do is simply hose it over with water. Whatever gets in, gets out. We’ve put it through the most severe tests, simulating accelerated weathering, UV aging, and wear resistance by following strict protocols.
Tempo Argo R1 Saddle
F1931160Regular price $224.99
A saddle for endurance cycling with a short-nosed design and generous ischial support that encourages stability and a highly stiff carbon rail (R1).
Where a traditional saddle shape encourages riders to shift their position frequently for better leverage, Argo puts the rider in a more planted position, making for greater stability and better weight distribution.
Argo is our most versatile saddle shape and each version suits different riding styles. As the endurance riding option, Tempo Argo has been engineered to deliver a riding feel that suits the balanced geometry of today’s all-purpose road machines.
Tempo Argo’s short length allows the rider to sit further forward without placing undue pressure on sensitive tissues. It also features an ergonomic cutout that was developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts.
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 we use on our racing saddles, providing more long-distance comfort.

Transiro Powerstrap R4 Shoe
F8490380Regular price $129.99
TRANSIRO POWERSTRAP R4 is a triathlon shoe with an extremely quick and intuitive to use, enveloping Velcro closure, ideal for shorter-distance races. For sprint or short distance triathlon formats, where every second shaved off in transition matters, we wanted to deliver a shoe that could offer the fastest and most intuitive closure system possible.
Powerstrap is extremely quick to fasten: simply slide into the shoe, pull, and roll out from the transition smoothly. The strap is designed to pull an extended area of the shoe’s upper, so the fit is enveloping and secure, even with a relatively simple system.
To ease the transition, the Powerstrap can be locked in the wide-open position ready for quick and easy foot entry, while the heel is equipped with a rubberized loop to facilitate setting the shoes ready clipped into the pedals, and easily and quickly pulling your feet into them.
The shoe’s upper construction combines mesh – for superior ventilation – with Microtex, to ensure appropriate foot support in every pedal stroke.
The upper is complemented by a moderately stiff R4 outsole, delivering a striking balance between comfort and pedaling efficiency while still providing efficient ventilation for temperature control.
Vento Argo R1 Saddle
F1921140Regular price $224.99
A short nose saddle with a combination of a ride-compliant carbon-reinforced nylon shell and a highly stiff carbon rail.
VENTO ARGO R1 is a performance racing saddle with a short-nose design that improves stability and allows for a more aggressive, aero riding position.
The purposeful shape of its design helps you achieve a better riding posture: the dropped nose supports the pubic ramus when the pelvis rotates forward to add power or to get more aero.
Argo is our most versatile saddle shape and each version suits different riding styles. As the racing option, Vento Argo has been engineered to deliver a riding feel that suits race bikes with aggressive geometry.
Vento Argo’s short length allows the rider to sit further forward without placing undue pressure on sensitive tissues. It also features an ergonomic cutout that was developed using detailed pressure analysis and input from medical experts.
The padding is made from fizik’s proprietary Type 1 foam formulation, which has a lower profile and is reactive and springy for instantaneous response and optimal power transfer.
