The distinctive-looking new Tempo Overcurve R5 is one of the first models from fizik’s new Tempo road shoe range. This introduces the new ergonomic Overcurve fitting system.
fizik notes that the Tempo road series is created for the most enjoyable riding experience. Designed to deliver an ‘essential timeless look, the classic considerations of a road shoe have been redefined with a distinct identity and fizik’s famous form-fitting construction, build quality and attention to detail.’
The new Overcurve closure design features a staggered collar wrapping around the ankle, with a distinctly asymmetrical shape, formed to follow the natural misalignment of the two bony protrusions from either side of the ankle. The Tempo Overcurve R5 shoe’s throat curves over the foot from its outer to its inner side.
Its closure is fast and secure, using a combination of a micro-adjustable BOA IP1 dial – which can be adjusted on the fly – along with a shorter Velcro strap for a fine tune fit of the forefoot area.
“We are pleased to bring the new Tempo Overcurve R5 shoes to market,” said Luca Mathia Bertoncello, fizik’s Brand Director. “Showcasing the versatile new Tempo shoe construction and R5 outsole provides an ideal platform on which to deliver the all-new Overcurve system.
“A study in ergonomic design, its form follows the natural shape created by the lateral and medial malleoli protrusions on either side of the ankle – the asymmetric shape lends itself to an overlapping curve along and across the rider’s foot. It means a technically superior fit option to rival many others available.”
Price at €149.00 / US$149.99 / £139.99, Tempo Overcurve R5 is available now in a range of five colourways – including the ‘unmissable fluo options’ – and a full range of sizes
