R1B Uomo: fi’zi:k’s range of road cycling shoes is developed in collaboration with leading professional cyclists and used to great effect by WorldTour, Olympic and World Championship riders. The best technologies, materials, R&D, testing and manufacture techniques are used to deliver you the best shoes for road riding and racing.
R1B is the top of the range; the optimum in performance cycling shoe design; the perfect blend of comfort and light weight, fit, power transfer and aerodynamic efficiency.
R1B features fi’z:k’s new proprietary Volume Control technology: whereby the shape of each shoe can be changed individually and adapted to any rider’s foot for optimum fit and comfort; and fi’z:k’s Extended Power Strap, a system adjusting the fit of the heel cup around the rider’s foot, resulting in increasing power transfer. Both the Volume Control and Extended Power Strap are micro-adjustable using Boa IP1 closure controls.
The R1B’s outsole is fully uni-directional carbon fiber – with built-in ventilation that further enhances both cooling and the aerodynamics. It combines with the proven supportive and comfortable fi’zi:k Cycling Insole with sculpted footbeds and supportive heel to ensure that every precious watt goes straight into your pedals.
The R1B’s Microfiber upper is hard-wearing, light, and resilient with enough flexibility to ensure that the Volume Control technology works to shape the shoe to every rider’s foot, but strong enough to withstand the demands of racing – without any weight penalty. The diamond-shaped laser-cut perforations help temperature management, in harmony with the sole’s air duct.
R1B Uomo weighs just 227g (size 42.5).
