Excellent ventilation and replaceable heel pads

To ensure the whole foot is fresh throughout the ride, ventilation holes are placed along the sole. These pockets work in conjunction with the upper’s perforated material.

In road shoes, the rear traction pads are the ones that wear out first. With the Fizik Aria R3’s renewable heel rubber pads, the grip could be refreshed and more extended use out of the footwear can be enjoyed.
