Fizik extends pro-level performance range

Fizik has extended its range of pro-level performance road shoes with the new Vento Powerstrap R1 Movistar Team model.

The shoes feature a full UD carbon vented sole, supple Microtex upper and simple, effective and light double Powerstrap closure system with secure Velcro fasteners. In the Powerstrap configuration, a ribbon wraps around the foot providing a secure fit using just two straps, which are separately adjustable for a customised fit.

“The popularity of this new shoe with the Movistar Team riders led us to look at producing them for general sale to the public,” said Carlo Maria Ferrero, Fizik’s marketing and communications manager.

“We always like to give our athletes the choice of the best equipment and it’s an interesting experience to discover what suits which rider – it’s part of our ongoing feedback and development programme. We ask them to try different shoes and stick with what works for them.

“It’s a generalisation because everyone’s different, but there’s a consensus that some riders prefer the new Vento Powerstrap R1 because of the predictable practicality, while others may prefer the Infinito R1’s double-Boa closure system so they can easily tighten mid-ride for intense effort. Whatever shoes each rider prefers, we wish them the best of luck this year.”

Vento Powerstrap R1 Movistar Team will be available to buy from 7th June, only in Movistar Team blue and white colourway.
