Fizik Tempo Artica R5 GTX Road Shoes
Don't let foul weather keep you from your cycling goals. When it's cold, wet and windy, the waterproof and warm Fizik Tempo Artica R5 GTX Road Shoes keep you racking up the miles in comfort.
During the wetter and colder months of the year, the motivation to ride outdoors can wane. And the extremities are often the first to suffer the bit of the winter weather. However, pull on the Tempo Artica R5 GTX Road Shoes and you can be sure of a motivation boost, all thanks to their ability to protect your feet from the most severe cold and wet weather.
GORE-TEX insulated Koala membrane
Whether it’s rain, sleet or even snow, the waterproof GORE-TEX insulated Koala membrane prevents moisture from seeping inside your R5 shoes. And while water droplets can’t get inside, the micropores of the membrane do still allow moisture molecules from sweat vapour to escape. The result is warmer and drier feet for longer.
Winter is a testing time for you and your equipment. And as such, Fizik have ensured the Artica R5s are made to meet those harsher winter conditions. The high-density, PU-laminated upper is extremely durable while still delivering the comfort you’d expect for those longer base-building rides.
As soon as you slip the Artica R5s on, you’ll feel the luxurious and cosy comfort of the ultra-soft brushed fleece lining. This hugs your feet in an insulating and breathable layer, fending off the icy tentacles of winter temperatures.
L6 BOA® Closure System
Whether you’ve got your cosy winter gloves on or you’re suffering from cold hands, you don’t want to be messing with laces or straps to get your shoe fit right. And so Fizik have deployed the ever simple and easy to adjust L6 L6 BOA® Closure System. Micro-adjustment allows you to get the fit just right, and you can adjust on the go.
Fizik have given the Tempo Artica R5 their R5 outsole. Made from a Nylon composite, it gives the shoe an ideal balance of stiffness, pedalling support and comfort. Press on the pedals and you’ll be propelled forward quickly and efficiently, but there’s enough flex for comfort over long distances too. Leave the expensive carbon soles for summer race days.
The lack of vents is optimised for colder weather and a recessed cleat position makes off-the-bike use more stable – just right for when you’re grabbing a warming coffee at a café stop.
These Cycling Shoes are compatible with road bike pedal systems that use cleats with 3-bolt standards, such as: Look Delta and Keo, Shimano SPD-SL, Speedplay Light Action, Zero, X-Series (via 3-hole adapter plate), Campagnolo Pro-Fit, Mavic Zxellium, Time Iclic/Xpresso and Time Impact.
