In pursuit of the ultimate lightweight and most ventilated racing shoe, Fizik have created the R2 Vento Powerstrap Aeroweave Road Shoes. The innovative net-like upper is paired with the ultra-stiff R2 carbon sole.
|Cycle Shoe Type:||Three Bolt|
|Cycle Shoe Closing:||Hook and Loop|
Fizik's engineers set themselves the task of creating a super-light shoe that made no sacrifices to foot support and pedalling performance. It also had to be incredibly breathable too. The result is the R2 Vento Powerstrap Aeroweave Road Shoes.
Aeroweave is an innovative woven fabric, interweaving lightweight nylon fibres with filaments of thermoplastic polymer. This combination creates a net-like structure that is highly durable but offers incredible levels of ventilation. Not only that, Aeroweave offers a supple fit, moving and cradling the foot for comfort while retaining the full support you need for a stable and efficient pedal stroke.
The R2 Vento Powerstrap Aeroweave secure your foot with a simple but ingenious configuration of the traditional strap system.
In order to offer stability and comfort throughout your ride, the Powerstrap system features a lightweight and reliable hook and loop strap system that pulls together the two sides of the upper. However, unlike a traditional system, the Powerstraps fully wrap around the upper. This provides even pressure across the whole foot, the ribbon wrapping around your foot for an unrivalled level of riding comfort. Another benefit is a much more aero finish than a traditional strap system.
R2 Carbon Outsole
The stiffest and lightest sole unit in the Fizik range, R2 Carbon Outsole delivers incredible responsiveness, with power transferred to your pedals with outstanding efficiency. Jump for a sprint or attack a climb and you're rewarded with immediate acceleration - only fitness is holding you back.
Efficient pedalling is also optimised thanks to the cleat track position. This has been set further rearwards to improve pedalling dynamics, reduce knee compression and power transfer - it's especially well-suited to very aggressive, forward aero riding positions.
These Cycling Shoes are compatible with road bike pedal systems that use cleats with 3-bolt standards, such as: Look Delta and Keo, Shimano SPD-SL, Speedplay Light Action, Zero, X-Series (via 3-hole adapter plate), Campagnolo Pro-Fit, Mavic Zxellium, Time Iclic/Xpresso and Time Impact.
Fi’zi:k is the premium, racing brand of Selle Royal S.p.a. Its name is synonymous with the shape and form of the human body; hence the intuitive association with products that are contact points between riders and their bikes. More than this, fi’zi:k represents beauty, speed, passion, freedom for those who race against each other, race against the clock and for enthusiast cyclists around the world who identify with the feeling of the fire of competition. The humble origin in 1996 stemmed from a vision to improve rider performance by creating superior saddle comfort. Today’s Spine Concept™ provides a guideline to help riders find their most comfortable saddle. Integral to this comfort is the design collaboration with professional athletes and the fact that each saddle is 100% “fatto a mano” (hand-made) in Italy. Some credit Fi’zi:k with redefining the racing saddle category thanks to its destructively-innovative elegant products that are not only comfortable, but also a source of style and beauty in their own right. The Arione, launched in 2003 is one such example. In 2006 fi’zi:k launched a product for riders’ hands: a strong, washable Microtex bar tape. Shoes were then launched in 2010 offering a unique blend of innovative materials with an inimitable style. 2014 saw fi’zi:k launch road cockpit components employing The Spine Concept™ to help riders choose their perfect handlebar shape. In 2016 fi’zi:k saddles are ridden by 8 UCI World Tour Teams. Fi’zi:k’s relentless innovation is facilitated by many such committed professional athletes, from all cycling disciplines. Relentless testing and refinement has helped fi’zi:k to push the boundaries of possibility. It will come as little surprise then that Fi’zi:k products have been ridden to many Cycling World titles, Ironman World Championship titles and beyond.
