Fizik R3 Uomo Road Shoe
For a secure, adjustable retention, the R3 Uomo incorporates two hook-and-loop straps along with Fi'zi:k's lightweight, durable aluminum 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 aluminum that's been mated to a stainless steel base. It has a double-click adjustment capability with a full-release mechanism at the middle 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 a complete control over volume, or simply to efficiently clean the inside of the shoe, Fi'zi:k designed the tongue pad to be fully-removable.
For the insole, Fi'zi:k included its own Dual Density EVA insert. And while it's not moldable like with the R1's 3D Flex, it does incorporate a supportive design that assures comfort by absorbing road vibration and supporting your arch system.Technical Specs:
