The Fizik R5 Mens Road Cycling Shoes carbon-reinforced nylon outsole is not only lightweight, but also stiff and durable. A stiff outsole is absolutely necessary to transfer the maximum amount of power to the road whilst also maintaining optimal pedalling technique.
Carbon-reinforced nylon outsole
Laser-perforated Microtex upper as used on Fizik saddle covers: lighter than leather, very durable, good in wet conditions and breathable
BOA IP1 closure system (tri-modal: tighten, loosen and complete release)
Neutral fit to accommodate the majority of foot shapes
Fizik Cycling Insole
Weight per shoe: 260g (size 43, without insole)
Light. Stiff sole. Comfortable. Form fitting for my narrow high-arched.feet. BOA closure works well. Velcro forefoot strap seems solid. Might need more ventilation at the height of Japanese summer, but all in all a very nice shoe.
Really love these shoes. This is my second pair of the same make & model. They fit true to the size listed and are incredibly comfortable. The BOA system and single Velcro strap allow for ease of use as well as on the fly adjustments.
Great looking, light, stiff and not too bad to walk in (as SPD SLs go). These were just right on sizing, despite my fairly wide feet. No issues on 2-3hr rides so far and the power transfer and stability is really noticeable.
Great looking shoe I'm looking forward to using, bought my normal trainer size and feels spot on
Great looking shoe. Good fit. Sizing seems accurate. Would definitely buy again.
I bought these after much deliberating and I'm so glad I did. Nice and light/stiff compared to my current shoes and I ordered my normal everyday shoe size and they fit great.
Great fit and very comfortable on the road. Lightweight and breathable makes for an all round shoe at a great price!
Bought these to replace uncomfortable Sidi Genius fit 5s - that were not comfy.
Have used the Fiziks for consecutive long rides with no issues.
Good, easy adjustment on the move.
No complaints here.
All day comfort
Very nice shoes fit as it should be.. Comfortable even on long rides
After reading previous reviews about cycling shoes my biggest concern was getting the right size. I ordered the same size as my existing shoes and they fit better than a glove. Excellent quality, very pleased.
These shoes are light, stiff and comfy, I highly recommend them. I am normally size 10.5 UK and the 45.5 fit well. They also look pretty good as well.
Great shoes, super comfy for the price. Size comes up just right for me. The boa fastener is quick to tighten however the Velcro fastener nearer the toe is purely cosmetic so its hard to achieve a tight fit all the way down the shoe. To unfasten you simply spin the boa wheel but its not obvious how much spinning will allow you to get your foot out! These are not in any way waterproof, after one day out in heavy rain my feet were waterlogged! My look cleats fitted no problem, the shoes came with easy instructions and have clear alignment markings on the sole. They also look great with silver trim that match my bike (I went for the white pair).
Great fitting shoe, very comfortable, lightweight and easy adjustment and a super price
Really pleased with these shoes. They look the business and are very comfortable. I`m size 8 and ordered size 43 which is nice and spacious.
Excellent shoes, now my 1st choice on rides.
They fit perfect, sizing is inline with normal shoes, they are secure and 3.5h ride in them is just a pleasure
Great looking shoes, fit is spot on.
I liked these shoes at the more expensive price but when they were reduced that sealed the deal for me. Have had one 100k ride with these shoes and would recommend.
