Fizik R3 Uomo Boa Shoes Info

There aren’t too many equipment choices you’ll make that is as important as choosing the right pair of cycling shoes for you. If you want a high quality, light, and comfortable pair of shoes without nudging the $400 mark, the Fizik R3B Uomo Shoes will nicely satisfy your conditions of satisfaction.

The “B” in the R3B name refers to Fizik’s use of the Boa closure system for this shoe. Though they bypass the top line R1, which does not use the Boa, the R3B makes use of the newest, and some think the best, closure system from Boa, the IP1 Boa. This version uses only one turning mechanism to tighten and loosen the shoe, which makes it the lightest and most user friendly Boa option available. It works easily with one hand, actually just a couple of fingers, so that you will be able to adjust your shoe fit while barreling down a descent or approaching a sprint finish. The full release mechanism also makes it very easy to get these shoes on and off; exhaustedly struggling out of fancy shoes after a five hour hammer fest is not one of our favorite pastimes. In case you want to have a firmer feel down by your toes, Fizik has added a hook and eye closure strap there. The material for the upper itself is the tried and true Microtex which has been laser perforated to provide the sort of ventilation you will need for hot days on black tarmac. The logo details are embossed and then laser etched which gives the shoes a rich dimension and will ensure that it will look crisp for the lifetime of the shoes.

The outsole is made from uni-directional carbon fiber, so that it will be light and stiff, allowing you to transfer as much power to the pedals as possible. Not only does the unidirectional carbon look amazing, Fizik uses it because they know that carbon filament will work best when aligned along the load axis. They will feel responsive without being so unforgiving as to give you hot spots or fatigue the feet. To help keep things comfy, Fizik uses their insole with a special EVA pad for metatarsal support. And to help you avoid scratching up your beautiful carbon soles, a replaceable heel pad will aid in walking and especially when you put your foot down at traffic lights, the most common place we muck up carbon soles.

In a size 43.5, the Fizik R3B Uomo Shoes weigh a feathery 230 grams, 30 less in fact than the more expensive R1 shoes. And aside from the lightweight advantage you’ll get, the Boa will give you a uniformly comfortable shoe to get you through long hours of base training, or fast crit racing equally well.
