Fizik R3B Uomo Road Shoes

The first flourish you will likely notice is that the R3 uses the Boa IP1 closure system. That’s significant since the Boa is one of the most effective ways you can secure your shoes with a minimum of weight but a maximum of comfort. The system allows you to micro-adjust the fit without causing any pressure points or potential hotspots. And best of all, you can make any adjustments on the fly since the dial works easily in both directions, that is whether you want to tighten the set-up in preparation for a final sprint, or if you want to loosen them after several hours in the saddle on a hot day. The uppers are made from Microtex. Stepping away from the use of kangaroo leather, Microtex is a synthetic fabric that offers both durability and comfort. It is also immensely breathable, in large part thanks to the laser-made perfect perforations. At the lower end of the foot, there is a hook-and-loop strap to make sure you can secure the shoe exactly according to your preference. It is made from a high-tech Italian sail cloth, which gives the shoes that extra touch of class.

For the insole, the shoes make use of the Fizik Cycling Insole, which is an ergonomically designed EVA insole complete with a metatarsal pad for added comfort. It will provide support and just the right amount of cushioning. You won’t have to worry about hotspots developing since the insole works completely in conjunction with the outsole. The unidirectional carbon sole offers a stiffness that will help you feel the responsiveness of every pedal stroke. The sole is compatible with any three-bolt system.
