The Fizik R5 Tempo Artica GTX is their road-specific winter shoe, insulated with a fleeced lining for extra warmth, and breathable and waterproof thanks to an advanced GORE-TEX membrane.
No matter how harsh the climate and whatever adventure you have planned, this shoe is built to protect you from the most severe cold, wet weather
Inside the shoe, a soft, brushed-fleece lining increases both insulation and comfort, for an added cozy layer of defense against winter’s worst elements, be that a ride in freezing rain or a full-on spin in the snow.
The advanced GORE-TEX Koala membrane technology is optimized for better breathability, which means that while wet weather conditions are stopped at the surface, moisture molecules from sweat vapor inside the shoe can easily escape through billions of tiny pores, for warmer, drier feet on cold, wet winter cycling adventures.
Outside, a high-density PU-laminated upper is the perfect match to the lightweight GORE-TEX membrane, combining resilience with streamlined warmth for a nimble shoe that retains a high level of durability. The addition of a Velcro strap secures the ankle in place, while a single L6 BOA® dial makes micro fit adjustments easy, even with bulky winter gloves.
The nylon outsole of the newly-redesigned R5 offers comfort and moderate stiffness for efficient pedaling. Additionally, the cleat position is set slightly further back compared to traditional settings to better optimize pedaling efficiency and reduce knee compression. On this winter-specific configuration, the outsole omits vented holes to keep feet warm and dry.
