Fizik R1B Road Cycling Shoes
Fizik have not compromised when it comes to their new top-of-the-range R1B Road Cycling Shoes. The design, materials, technology and manufacturing process have all been conducted to ensure these shoes live up to the demands of the world's top riders.
The result is a shoe that looks as stunning as it performs. Starting with the outsole, the full unidirectional carbon (UD) vented sole maintains the optimal level of stiffness and the maximum efficiency in power transfer through the entirety of your pedal stroke. The strategic vents help to keep air flowing though the shoe so your feet maintain a breathable and comfortable microclimate.
Moving on to the upper, Fizik have really put an emphasis on fit and performance with more than a little style. A newly designed microtex cover with laser-perforated sides is now less prone to damage than previous models while also allowing breathability and an appropriate level of flex and support.
Boa fixings have become the standard for high performance road shoes for a good reason, so Fizik's choice to use two Boa dials as the R1B's closure system will be appreciated by those looking to make micro adjustments that really hone in their fit. Boa dials allow for easy micrometric adjustment without the clutter of laces and the ad hoc nature of Velco straps.
The top of the shoe's wrap-around design not only boosts the aerodynamic performance of the shoe but also relieves the potential pressure-point build up that is often associated with traditional central laces.
The R1B is available in a black or white colour scheme that is sure to compliment any keen riders kit with its Italian stylings and understated flair.
