The R5B is fi'zi:k's most accessible road shoe, inheriting many of its features from the R1 and R3 models. It's comfortable and lightweight, with a carbon-reinforced nylon outsole stiff enough for most. Many agree that it's hard to find an Italian-made road cycling shoe that looks as sharp, at this price! The BOA closure system is new for 2015. Why use BOA?
Glove-like fit: it provides custom comfort with smooth, even closure and no pressure points.
Powerful closure: once locked into place, BOA reels and laces stay that way.
Micro-adjustability: BOA reels offer seemingly infinite degrees of fine tuning.
Quick on, quick off: BOA saves time when seconds count.
On-the-fly adjustment: get easy, one-handed adjustment with a quick turn of the BOA dial.
Durable: made from aircraft grade stainless steel, BOA laces are stronger per gram than tank armour.
