Most famous for their saddles, Fizik has been in the cycling shoe business for over a decade. With off-road duties in mind the Italian brand is launching the new Ferox that will be available in two colorways for $299.
FIZIK FEROX CARBON
Ferox is a shoe designed for off-road racing, xc and gravel, combining a performance ready carbon outsole with a breathable and lightweight, yet durable and
resistant, upper construction.
With a dual closure system, the instep and forefoot are separately adjustable for a customized and secure fit. At the instep, Powerstrap provides an exceptional foot containment at high cadence, particularly common when pedaling off-road, while, at the same time, providing a crash-proof system that will take you safely to every finish line. A premium bi-directional Li2 BOA fit system is located at the forefoot, delivering long-lasting, pressure-free comfort
The perfect fit is complemented with a redesigned X1 outsole. With a high stiffness to weight ratio, the carbon plate efficiently transfers the power generated from the shoe to the bike. The outsole is now equipped with generous studs and a rubber coating the covers the entire surface, including the midfoot, delivering improved traction for those off-the-bike moments.
Ferox’s weight is also kept low thanks to an innovative upper construction, a polyurethane laminated material combined over a translucent and comfortable mesh. This not only saves weight, but at same time is breathable and yet, tear resistant.
