Today, fizik releases the lightest ever version of its now iconic short-nosed racing saddle. At just 139g, the ‘Vento Argo 00’ utilises a high-modulus, full-carbon fibre shell and unique one-piece mobius loop rail to deliver stiffness and low weight. Meanwhile, the low-profile, injected EVA padding offers supreme comfort whilst also shaving off precious grams for performance-focused riders.
Search and State doesn’t believe in putting the bike away in the winter. That means we all need serious riding gear! And it all starts with a great pair of tights. SAS used multiple weight fabrics in the Z-1’s to optimize protection and comfort. Your joints need to be kept warm and loose at all times in the winter to avoid injury. And you also need flexibility behind the knee to avoid bulk and be able to pedal comfortably.
The Z-1 is water-resistant, windproof, and built to take on anything. They are as bomb-proof as they come and will last years and years on end. Details include a sublime brushed back body fabric, multi-density paneling, silicone ankle grippers, 2 High-Viz reflective bands on each leg for safety, and the most comfortable upper ever.
The Z-1 is made in NYC and is in stock now from SAS.

Alisha Zellner lives by two guiding principles. Live an EPIC life and be the change you wish you see in the world. She is Black and also wears Blue. Living in two worlds has been one of the most difficult things in her entire life because her heart aches for both sides and she often feels silenced. Alisha created Bike Ride for Black Lives as a way to honor the Black community and find her voice in the movement. With the help of a bicycle, she opened up an opportunity for other uniformed Black individuals to find their voice too and bring her community together during a time of turmoil.
