Closely following the success of its R1B shoe, which powered riders such as Geraint Thomas, Rohan Dennis, Daniel Oss and Philippe Gilbert through this season’s WorldTour, Infinito R1 is now the top of fi’zi:k’s range of road performance shoes. Developed in collaboration with pro cyclists, according to fi’zi:k, the shoe ‘encapsulates the very latest in performance road shoe technology, built for better-than-ever comfort, fit and power transfer, through a winning combination of technologies, materials and improved design.’
‘Infinite adjustability and comfort’
Infinito R1 takes its name from the Infinito Closure System; billed as a new dimension of infinite fit providing maximum comfort. The double Boa IP1-B closure system threads steel-coated nylon laces in an infinite configuration, micro-adjusting to enclose the upper forefoot.
The Infinito R1’s new Dynamic Arch Support system works with the Increased Volume Control upper to adapt to fit any rider’s foot. The use of carefully positioned textile guides aims to eliminate pressure points, while the new mesh footbed provides a structured, enhanced support.
Staying cool is aided by the full unidirectional carbon fibre outsole, which is ventilated for optimum temperature control, ‘even when putting down the power in the hottest riding conditions’. The sole is engineered to produce a highly stiff, light sole; the UD carbon also aims to give riders the best power transfer possible.
Infinito R1 features a 1.3mm thick Laser Perforated Microtex upper for a blend of breathability, strength, flexibility and support while remaining light weight. fi’zi:k’s design team has also minimized the number of seams, for comfort.
Also new is the Infinito mesh footbed which is purposefully designed for this shoe and combines structured support for enhanced comfort.
Infinito R1 is available in four cool colourways: Black/Black, Black/Red, White/Black and Red/Black. They all bear the distinct fi’zi:k logo, embossed vertically on the heel and de-bossed on the upper toe outer.
