Following last year’s launch of the Infinito R1 Knit from fi’zi:k – billed as the world’s first knitted cycling race shoe – three new colourways have now been unveiled. In addition to the original colourway of Black Knit/Red, the Infinito R1 Knit will be also be available in:
• Gray Knit/Black
• Petroleum Blue Knit/Yellow Fluo
• Purple Knit/Blue
fi’zi:k notes that the knitted upper is light and highly breathable, yet strong and supportive. This unique construction plus a host of premium technologies make it the brand’s highest performing shoe.
fi’zi:k has also revealed that it is the only brand offering a number of leading pro riders a high performance knitted shoe at this year’s Tour de France. Debuting the Infinito R1 Knit in Gray Knit/Black will be Team Sky’s Geraint Thomas and AG2R La Mondiale’s Oliver Naesen.
The Aria R3 is fi’zi:k’s high performance all-season shoe for road riders looking for a blend of light weight, breathability, flexibility, strength and support and is now available in a brand new colourway – Navy Blue.
For off road riders, the Terra X5, built with a laser perforated Microtex upper and a breathable inner mesh, will see two new colourways:
• Military Green/Tangy Green
• Dark Blue/Brick Red
The Terra X5 Suede – featuring similar specifications to the Terra X5 and further benefiting from advanced resistance to cuts and abrasions, and enhanced breathability and comfort thanks to the pliant characteristic of the natural Suede upper – will also have a fresh colourway: Dark Brown Suede/Sage Green.
