Weve always loved Fiziks saddles. The Italian manufacturers unconventional approach to design has always been much more than hype our experience has been that it truly translates directly to performance, and it has changed our expectations for road and mountain saddles across the board. Fiziks foray into shoes has been no less revolutionary, with landmark design and performance. With its R5 Uomo Boa Shoe, we can now add value to the list.
At the heart of the new shoe is the unbeatable precision of the Boa dial-in closure system. This closure system makes dialing a perfect fit easy, even if you need to make micro-adjustments on the fly. The R5 Uomos closure system starts with a conventional hook-and-loop strap close to the toe for near-infinite forefoot width control. Moving up the front of the foot, the Boa Cable dial-in closure system snakes its way through 4 separate anchor points for complete control all the way up to the tongue.
To further control slippage, Fizik has shaped the heel cup at the aft position of the shoe. This feature keeps the foot in the perfect position on hard up-strokes and while climbing out of the saddle. As a result, you're powering the pedals comfortably and efficiently. This has been further heightened by a variable stiffness sole construction. Underfoot, the R5 makes use of a carbon-reinforced nylon outsole. And while this keeps costs down, it doesn't inhibit either comfort or power transfer. In fact, the R5 retains a low stack height and a high level of rigidity. Fizik has also engineered-in trace flexibility, so the outsole drives power directly to the pedals while allowing enough movement to guarantee comfort after 80 kilometers.
And on the topic of comfort, Fizik went above and beyond to make the R5 extremely breathable. The R5 features Fizik's Microtex for the support structure of the uppers and nylon mesh for the ventilation windows. Together, these materials keep your feet breathing and comfortable on long summer days in the saddle. And for the insole, Fizik included its own Superlight Insole. And while its not custom moldable like with the R1, it does incorporate a thoughtful design that assures comfort by absorbing road vibration and supporting your arch system.
