Fizik - Tempo Overcurve R5 Paris ltd Edition
Tempo Overcurve R5 Paris 1969 is a stylish and versatile road cycling shoe that evokes a golden age of the world’s most famous bike race.
The main upper of the Tempo Overcurve R5 Paris 1969 is made of Microtex suede, featuring larger perforation holes in a wider pattern than the Tempo Overcurve R5. Covering the toe and eyestay area is a leather-look Microtex section that is die cut in a zigzag pattern to recall the late 1960s and early 1970s shoe construction techniques. A smart gold logotype completes the retro look.
When it comes to performance there are few that can argue with the R5’s reputation. An instant road classic, they sport the famous Overcurve construction that uses a staggered collar to wrap around the ankle. This traces the natural misalignment of the two bony protrusions in the lateral and medial malleoli. Offering riders an asymmetrical shape, the shoe curves over the foot to wrap it like a present and guides all the way from the outside to the inner for one of the cosiest fits yet.
Should you wish to adjust your fitting, the closure is assisted by the micro-adjustable BOA IP1 dial that twists to your liking in order to provide customisable comfort. Working in tandem with a Velcro strap to fine-tune your fit, riding in endless comfort and stability ensures you feel as good as the shoes look. Add in the R5 nylon composite outsole that is capable of delivering explosive power transfers, and in the Tempo Overcure R5 you have one road shoe capable of opening up a world of endless possibilities.
