Fizik R5 Tempo Overcurve Road Shoes
Fizik R5 Tempo Overcurve Road Shoes
Tempo Overcurve R5 is a quick-fit road cycling shoe designed to suit every rider and every ride. With a timeless look and verstaile performance the classic road shoe has been redefined with a distinct fi'zi:k identity and a smart form-fitting construction.
The shoe features a staggered collar that wraps around the ankle tracking the natural misalignment of the ankle's two bony protusions; the lateral and medial malleoli. The result is an asymetric shape, with the throat of the shoe curving over the foot from the outside to the inner side.
The closure is fast and easily micro adjustable using a BOA IP1 dial and velcro strap to fine tune the fit in the forefoot area.
- Overcurve: asymmetrical construction that ergonomically conforms to the foot’s anatomy
- Microtex upper: supple yet strong and durable for a comfortable and consistent fit
- R5 nylon composite outsole: delivers balance between comfort and pedalling efficiency
- Outsole R5 carbon reinforced nylon
- BOA IP1-B dial
- Approximate weight 253g (size 42.5)
Mr Richardson I'm normally a size 10 and ordered a 45. These fit perfectly and have been really comfortable on 50K plus rides. The BOA is excellent and for the price I paid I'm really happy. Dispatch was really quick from Merlin as well. 👍
GeraintNotThomas Usual high quality Fizik, fit is spot on, I generally go by my eu sizing. There's a substantial heel and toe contact area, they look amazeballs and Merlin where the cheapest by some margin. Highly recommended.
KM Good fit, Iight and hard sole. Transfer all my power to the pedal. White gets dirty easily but it's cool looking. Great buy!
Mr Ramsden I spent ages trying to find a shoe at a mid price level where you can buy replacement BOA fittings after the BOA on my previous LG shoes had snapped so decided on these Fiziks. I've done 3 or 4 hundred miles with them so far and after the usual tweaking of the cleat angles they have proved to be excellent. They seem very good quality and perfect for a middle ability sportive rider like me. I take size 10 shoes so went for the 10.5 and even with two pairs of socks they are plenty comfortable. Also this was the first time I've used Merlin and I was very happy with the speed of the service and the communication - I will definitely be using them again.
Slalom Nice shoes...a little narrow in the fit so ordered up a 1/2 European size.
Adam very comfortable shoe, love the way you can easily adjust tension with the dial on the side. Making it easy to tie up and take off. Pretty pointless velcro strap at the front of shoe but it looks stylish. With cleats on still able to walk around well and absolutely love the neon yellow on the lip of shoe.
Colin T Pretty happy with these, good value at this price point, the Steel Blue looks great and is a refreshing change for me from white/black. I moved from an entry point shoe with x3 velcro straps to this BOA system and it works really well. Like the fact I can make small adjustments on my ride as feet warm up, you can tweak without getting off the bike nice and easy. Im using just now in colder weather and should really have overshoes on for the sub 10 degrees windy rides. Think they will be perfect for spring /summer. They are simple in construction, light weight, feel good in terms of fit, stiff and a decent looking shoe.
James Found these slightly narrow for a wide foot on the first few wears. Once worn in were much more comfortable.
Philip This is a quality shoe offering good levels of stiffness, they look the business too. I really like the boa fastener as it enables a snug fit regardless of the sock thickness I'm wearing. Sizing was spot on. Lovely shoe, very happy.
Mr Small Great fit (no need to go up a size), comfortable & stylish. Boa dial adjusts in both directions which many don't. What's not to like
Mr De Guia Ordered the white/black R5 and shoes looks better in actual than on pic. Fit is true to size (ordered size 44) although I have a narrow foot.
Ollie These shoes are comftable, breathable good looking. Highly recomend. Power transfer is good
Rod Very pleased with these shoes, spent some time deciding which ones to go for, as footbed width was a key metric. Ordered the R5's in 43 to try, and was very pleasantly surprised at the comfort and fit, footbed width just right for me. A few rides in now, and have found them to be very comfortable and do the job for me!
Mr Young Fantastic shoes. Light weight and look great
