This is the new Fizik R1B. Developed in collaboration with
leading professional cyclists, the new R1B is the optimum in
performance cycling shoe design.
But here, comfort is not an option - it's a standard part of the
There is no compromise in materials, technology, design and
manufacturing process, as the perfect blend is reached between
stiffness, comfort and light weight, all balanced together for the

Fizik shoes have always been stylish, previously featuring
unusual premium materials such Olympic grade sail fabric and
kangaroo leather, but it could be argued they were perhaps lacking
a little in performance. With their latest designs making the move
to the Boa closure system and focusing more intensely on
performance we think they have really perfected the balance. The
styling is still sleek and attractive in that classic Italian way,
though the materials are now less prone to damage than before. We
think the R1B Uomo looks to be a great option for those seeking
high performance with extraordinary styling.
