The R5B is fi'zi:k's most accessible road shoe, inheriting many of its features from the R1 and R3 models. It's comfortable and lightweight, with a carbon-reinforced nylon outsole stiff enough for most. Many agree that it's hard to find an Italian-made road cycling shoe that looks as sharp.
Why use BOA?
-Glove-like fit: it provides custom comfort with smooth, even closure and no pressure points.
-Powerful closure: once locked into place, BOA reels and laces stay that way.
-Micro-adjustability: BOA reels offer seemingly infinite degrees of fine tuning.
-Quick on, quick off: BOA saves time when seconds count.
-On-the-fly adjustment: get easy, one-handed adjustment with a quick turn of the BOA dial.
-Durable: made from aircraft grade stainless steel, BOA laces are stronger per gram than tank armour.
-Lightweight: BOA closures shed water, mud and ice, shaving precious weight.
-Carbon-reinforced Nylon Outsole
-Laser-perforated Microtex upper (as used on fi'zi:k saddle covers: lighter than leather, very durable, good in wet conditions, breathable and cleans up well) with Reflective Inserts.
-BOA IP1 closure system (tri-modal: tighten, loosen and complete release)
-Neutral fit to accommodate the majority of foot shapes
-Fi'zi:k Cycling Insole
-Weight: 260g (size 43, without insole)
