Fizik unveils Tempo Overcurve R5 road shoe

Fizik has unveiled the Tempo Overcurve R5, its ‘asymmetric’ new road shoe.

It is one of the first new models from fizik’s new Tempo road shoe range, and introduces the ergonomic new Overcurve fitting system.

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.

The brand has said its closure is fast and secure, using a combination of a micro-adjustable BOA IP1 dial 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.”

The Tempo Overcurve R5 is available now worldwide in a range of five colourways.
