The Fizik Tempo R5 Powerstrap is a versatile road bike shoe that is excellent on asphalted roads.
It distinguishes itself from other road bike shoes due to the innovative Powerstrap velcro strap. Most velcro straps pull two sides of the shoe towards each other. The innovative Powerstrap of the Tempo R5 winds itself around the instep and side of the shoe. Due to the elastic ribbon, the shoe adjusts itself to the shape of your foot and pressure is divided equally over the foot. This ensures an optimal fit and very high wearing comfort.
The R5 nylon composite outsole provides a wonderful balance between comfort and stiffness. This outsole is reinforced with carbon, which improves power transmission to the pedals. Meanwhile the comfort of the shoe remains excellent, making the Fizik Tempo R5 Powerstrap suited for long distance use as well.
Clarification size in cm
The size denoted in cm tells you how long the shoe is. This size was taken on the inside of the shoe measuring from the heel to the toes. In order to determine what size you’ll need, you can measure your own foot. Do this by placing a piece of paper on the floor tucked against the wall. Stand on the paper with your heel against the wall. Draw a line at your big toe. Measure the distance between that and the wall, and add approximately 5 mm. The number of centimeters is the size in centimeters found on our website. Which specific EU/UK size you need can differ between brands. This is because each brand uses their own boot tree, causing the shoe to be bigger or smaller than the size would suggest. This is why we’ve added the size in centimeters for all of our shoes. We’ve also categorised our shoes in three different groups: narrow, medium, and wide. In order to determine the width of your foot, you can use this table. Read all about it on our blog!
