Exceptionally stiff and well-vented
Exceptionally stiff and well-vented, this model’s full carbon outsole guarantees efficient power transfer. It is crafted from the ultimate type of cycling soles, specifically laterally unidirectional carbon fiber.
The sole’s lightweight properties also contribute to the pair’s overall air-like feel without compromising the direct, stable link to the bike.
Infinito R1 comes with replaceable rear pads
Rubber pads are some of the fastest wearing components in a cycling shoe. Hence, when a model like the Infinito R1 offers renewable pads, it provides users with more prolonged use and grip efficiency.
3-bolt compatible cleat pattern
This road shoe features a 3-bolt compatible cleat pattern. It goes with an array of pedal options such as Garmin Vector 3 Power Meter, Issi Carbon Road, and Powertap P2 Power Meter models.
The 3-bolt cleat system is recommended for users who want the feel of truly being connected with the bike. It provides a more secure pedal fastening compared to its 2-bolt counterpart.
Comfortable and supportive upper design
The Infinito R1 employs a laser-perforated Microtex upper. This portion is designed to reduce seams and stitches that ultimately help in preventing hotspots and deliver an enhanced fit. The laser-cut perforations, on the other hand, ensure ventilation that efficiently prevents moisture and temperature build-up.
The Fizik Infinito R1 utilizes standard cycling insoles with mesh lining to provide the best possible ventilation to keep the foot comfortable and supported at the same time.
Secure fit of the Fizik Infinito R1
The shoe’s Infinito closure system consists of double BOA IP1-B dials and steel-coated nylon laces that are kept in place throughout the upper via textile pockets. This unique closure design ensures a securely fastened sensation.
With the dials’ micro-adjustments, the wearer can easily find the most appropriate fit. They help prevent slips and shape after the foot, no matter the user’s arch height. On top of these, the dials can be adjusted even while on the road.
