The Fizik R1B Uomo Boa Limited Edition Men's Cycling Shoe carries a pedigree that's seen time in everything from time trials to spring classics to weeklong stage races at the highest level of our sport. This particular version takes the standard R1B and pairs it with an eye-catching colorway that'll add a pop of intrigue to any race kit. The R1B incorporates Fizik's Volume Control system to prevent hot spots with two independently wired Boa IP1 dials, an adjustable heel cup, and a pull-over flap that's shaped to wrap the foot rather than just strap it in. This partitioned adjustment construction is fairly standard with most high-level shoes these days, but the Volume Control design really departs from other shoes at the upper Boa dial. It not only wraps the mid- and upper-foot for a secure fit from afore, but it also adjusts from astern, dialing the heel cup's fit to ensure the kind of customizable security that keeps your feet in place for more efficient power transfer throughout your pedal stroke and less danger of heel irritation and blisters. Instead of its predecessor's Kangaroo leather, the R1B's upper is Fizik's all-purpose microtex synthetic. It's the same, well-tested material found across the manufacturer's shoe and saddle lines. Barring a series of tiny, ventilating perforations, the uppers are a single, clean piece, adding to the shoes' understated profile and validating the aesthetic praise they received in virtually every publication that wrote them up after the latest round of industry trade shows.
