For Qhubeka by Nathan Haas
Get your hands on a pair of my limited edition shoes. I’m auctioning them for Qhubeka- all proceeds go straight to the cause. The shoes were designed for Fi:zi’k sponsored riders for this year’s Giro D’Italia. I think it’s part of our job as sportspeople to give back as much as we can, whilst we can to cycling. And although OF COURSE I’d love to hang onto these shoes, I’ve got the other worn pair, and the funds could go to a much worthier cause than a display cabinet. –Nathan Haas

R1B Uomo: fi’zi:k’s range of road cycling shoes is developed in collaboration with leading professional cyclists and used to great effect by WorldTour, Olympic and World Championship riders. The best technologies, materials, R&D, testing and manufacture techniques are used to deliver you the best shoes for road riding and racing.
R1B is the top of the range; the optimum in performance cycling shoe design; the perfect blend of comfort and light weight, fit, power transfer and aerodynamic efficiency.
R1B features fi’z:k’s new proprietary Volume Control technology: whereby the shape of each shoe can be changed individually and adapted to any rider’s foot for optimum fit and comfort; and fi’z:k’s Extended Power Strap, a system adjusting the fit of the heel cup around the rider’s foot, resulting in increasing power transfer. Both the Volume Control and Extended Power Strap are micro-adjustable using Boa IP1 closure controls.
The R1B’s outsole is fully uni-directional carbon fiber – with built-in ventilation that further enhances both cooling and the aerodynamics. It combines with the proven supportive and comfortable fi’zi:k Cycling Insole with sculpted footbeds and supportive heel to ensure that every precious watt goes straight into your pedals.
The R1B’s Microfiber upper is hard-wearing, light, and resilient with enough flexibility to ensure that the Volume Control technology works to shape the shoe to every rider’s foot, but strong enough to withstand the demands of racing – without any weight penalty. The diamond-shaped laser-cut perforations help temperature management, in harmony with the sole’s air duct.
R1B Uomo weighs just 227g (size 42.5).
