The R5 Uomo carries over the same high performance professional cycling shoes as its R3 older brother, strategically applying the best materials in all the right places for a fraction of the R3 price. For instance the upper is suited with fi’zi:k’s Microtex Nylon Mesh material 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. Need we mention the R5 Uomo is handmade in Italy?
