The R5 is fi’zi:k’s most accessible entry-level road shoe, inheriting many of its features from the R1 and R3 models. It’s comfortable and lightweight, with a carbon-reinforced nylon outsole stiff enough for most. Classic Italian form and function.
|Cleat Fitting - 3 Bolt Look Type:||Yes|
|Sole Material:||Carbon reinforced nylon|
Fizik have kept things beautifully simple with this their entry level road shoe so you get the most performance at a great price point. The upper is a breathable nylon to allow for a great fit and feel plus offering plenty of ventilation so you feel comfortable your whole ride. Fit is dialed in using Microtex closure straps and a durable aluminium ratchet buckle making adjustments on the fly very easy. The carbon reinforced nylon sole keeps costs reasonable while still offering good stiffness and low weight. All this wrapped in a wonderfully subtle and restrained design, ideal for those who like to let their legs do the talking.
After dedicated Italian craftsmen have breathed life into eclectic raw materials, the resulting shoe extols all the virtues associated with a superb fit: maximising power transfer, while boasting a sharp aesthetic to boot!
Road racing cycling shoes are designed without compromise to provide optimum power transfer between your foot and the pedal, a good quality road cycling shoe is a wise investment for performance and weight saving and is often overlooked. High-tech materials and precision manufacture keep weight down and stiffness up, this means your rotational mass is lower and power transfer is higher, resulting in more forward momentum for your effort.
Fi’zi:k is the premium, racing brand of Selle Royal S.p.a. Its name is synonymous with the shape and form of the human body; hence the intuitive association with products that are contact points between riders and their bikes. More than this, fi’zi:k represents beauty, speed, passion, freedom for those who race against each other, race against the clock and for enthusiast cyclists around the world who identify with the feeling of the fire of competition. The humble origin in 1998 stemmed from a vision to improve rider performance by creating superior saddle comfort. Today’s Spine Concept™ provides a guideline to help riders find their most comfortable saddle. Integral to this comfort is the design collaboration with professional athletes and the fact that each saddle is 100% “fatto a mano” (hand-made) in Italy. Some credit Fi’zi:k with redefining the racing saddle category thanks to its destructively-innovative elegant products that are not only comfortable, but also a source of style and beauty in their own right. The Arione, launched in 2003 is one such example. In 2006 fi’zi:k launched a product for riders’ hands: a strong, washable Microtex bar tape. Shoes were then launched in 2010 offering a unique blend of innovative materials with an inimitable style. 2014 sees fi’zi:k launch road cockpit components employing The Spine Concept™ to help riders choose their perfect handlebar shape. In 2013 fi’zi:k saddles were ridden by 8 out of the 19 UCI World Tour Teams. Fi’zi:k’s relentless innovation is facilitated by many such committed professional athletes, from all cycling disciplines. Relentless testing and refinement has helped fi’zi:k to push the boundaries of possibility. It will come as little surprise then that Fi’zi:k products have been ridden to many Cycling World titles, Ironman World Championship titles and beyond.
