You may have caught a glimpse of the Fizik Vento R1 PowerStrap Movistar Team feet of riders such as Mikel Landa and Richard Carapaz - designed to offer the incredible comfort of the R5 Powerstrap shoe with the incredible stiffness of the R1 shoe, they're a winner for the dedicated racing cyclist.
The Powerstrap design has proved to be incredibly popular with amateur and pro riders alike thanks to its simplicity, ease of adjustment and lack of bulk. However, the pro riders of Movistar wanted a stiffer shoe and so Fizik created the Vento R1 PowerStrap Movistar Team. The ventilated Microtex upper and easy to adjust Powerstrap is retained and to this is added a full UD carbon sole for maximum stiffness and power transfer.
Using a double Velcro strap design, the Powerstrap hugs the foot perfectly and it's incredibly easy to adjust to your liking. Not only is it comfortable it's incredibly light too, creating a shoe that's ideal for the weight-weenies amongst you. Working in tandem with Fizik’s Volume Control, the instep and midfoot adjust to your liking separately for compression and customisation.
Then comes the UD carbon sole, again it's incredibly light but without any sacrifices to stiffness, delivering all your watts to the pedal. It's not just stiff though, the sole is highly ventilated for maximum temperature control, working alongside the new mesh footbed for airflow, delivering cool feet as the speed and temperatures start to rise.
A winner with the Pro riders of the Movistar team, you can also now enjoy the comfort and performance of the Vento R1 PowerStrap Movistar Team, whether training or racing.
