The M5 Uomo carries over the same high performance professional cycling shoes as its M3 older brother, except it strategically applies the best materials in all the right places for a fraction of the M3 cost. For instance the upper is equipped with a combination of fi’zi:k’s Microtex Nylon Mesh material and anti scratch leather, for high comfort and durability. Comfort is further optimized by the fi’zi:k Superlight insole which also reduces weight. The Nylon Carbon reinforced outsole also keeps weight minimal while providing a stiff platform for superior power transfer and acceleration. The aluminum buckle allows adjustments to be made without ever leaving the saddle, ensuring that you stop at nothing during the intensity of a race. Need we mention the M5 Uomo is handmade in Italy?
