Fizik R1 Uomo Road Shoe
The R1 Uomo Shoes are the top offering from the Italian craftsmen at Fi'zi:k. Handmade in Italy, the R1 checks all of the boxes with a moldable insole, an advanced carbon fiber sole design, and ultra-soft, kangaroo leather uppers. Basically, the R1 provides your feet with the lightest comfort available to mankind.
The R1 Uomo features two hook-and-loop straps along with Fi'zi:k's Hex/MC carbon fiber ratcheting buckle. This system allows you to fully tune the fit and volume of the shoes both pre-ride and on-the-fly. The bottom two straps control the snugness of the fit at the metatarsal and instep areas. These straps are best adjusted before you hit the road and left alone thereafter.
The ratcheting strap is what dictates the entry and exit adjustments. The loading lever is made from carbon fiber that's been mated to a stainless steel base. It has a double-click adjustment capability with a full-release mechanism at the base of the lever. Together, the three strap system eliminates any internal foot slippage that depreciates your efficiency. To evenly distribute pressure across the top of the foot, Fi'zi:k made the strap dimensions wide. The strap design allows you to easily lengthen or shorten the strap in order to precisely dial-in the volume of the shoe. Also, each strap has been crafted from fully-adjustable length sail cloth in order to bolster durability while maintaining a low overall weight. For an extreme control over volume, or simply to efficiently clean the inside of the shoe, Fi'zi:k designed the tongue pad to be fully-removable.
The Fi'zi:k R1 Uomo Shoes are available in the colors Black and White and in odd and even sizes ranging from 40.0 to 48.0. Please go to Fi'zi:k's official website for instructions on how to mold the 3D Flex Insoles.Technical Specs:
