For cyclists who want to get out and ride whatever the weather, warm, dry feet are essential – and fi’zi:k’s new Artica range has the answer.
Tough, comfortable, warm, easy to clean and totally waterproof, fi’zi:k’s new winter shoes are designed to completely protect, enabling riders to put down the winter distance in comfort. R5 and X5 share many materials and design considerations, with different soles suited to ROAD or MTB riding.
Artica shoes feature an adaptive, lightweight fit with seamless bonding technology and an Internal Speed Lacing system that’s quick to fasten and easy to secure.
Water has no chance with Artica; a breathable mesh to maximize airflow is covered by a fully enclosed waterproof membrane to keep feet completely dry and warm during challenging foul weather riding conditions. Being encased by a waterproof zip and a fully enclosed waterproof outer layer, it’s also easy to clean; the dirt washes straight off.
Both the R5 and X5 feature fi’zi:k’s winter edition insole. Made with a warm fleece upper providing snug comfort and an aluminum layer for superior insulation, it’s the ultimate combination for comfort and performance.
The Artica R5’s nylon outsole is light and stiff, while the X5’s treaded rubber outsole and PU bonding provides a complete shield from trail hazards and high levels of grip when tackling the elements off the bike.
Whatever your riding discipline – road or dirt – fi’zi:k’s Artica will help you power through this winter in maximum comfort.
