Fizik Terra Artica X5 GTX Off Road ShoesThe Fizik Terra Artica X5 GTX Off Road Shoes excel during the colder and wetter months of the year. While others stay indoors, slip these waterproof and insulated shoes on and enjoy your outdoor cycling, come what may. It can be hard to generate enthusiasm for cold-weather riding. But the Terra Artica X5 GTX Off Road Shoes will give a great boost to your winter motivation. So, whether it’s snow-covered mountain bike XC loops, epic gravel adventures in pouring rain or sleety down-country bike-park laps, they protect against whatever the weather has in store.GORE-TEX insulated Koala membraneWhether it’s rain, sleet or even snow, the waterproof GORE-TEX insulated Koala membrane prevents moisture from seeping inside your shoes. And while water droplets can’t get inside, the micropores of the membrane do still allow moisture molecules from sweat vapour to escape. The result is warmer and drier feet for longer.Durable UpperWinter is a testing time for you and your equipment. And as such, Fizik have ensured the Artica X5s are made to meet those harsher winter conditions. The high-density, PU-laminated upper is extremely durable while still delivering the comfort you’d expect for those longer base-building rides.Fleece LinedAs soon as you slip the Artica X5s on, you’ll feel the luxurious and cosy comfort of the ultra-soft brushed fleece lining. This hugs your feet in an insulating and breathable layer, fending off the icy tentacles of winter temperatures.L6 BOA® Closure SystemWhether you’ve got your cosy winter gloves on or you’re suffering from cold hands, you don’t want to be messing with laces or straps to get your shoe fit right. And so Fizik have deployed the ever simple and easy to adjust L6 L6 BOA® Closure System. Micro-adjustment allows you to get the fit just right, and you can adjust on the go.X5 OutsoleFizik have given the Tempo Artica X5 their X5 outsole. Made from a Nylon composite, it gives the shoe an ideal balance of stiffness, pedalling support and comfort. Press on the pedals and you’ll be propelled forward quickly and efficiently, but there’s enough flex for comfort over long distances too. Leave the expensive carbon soles for summer race days.The rubber tread offers a tenacious grip on rocks, roots and muddy terrain while the wider heel platform gives extra reassurance on particularly slippery ground. And for the muddiest of conditions, toe studs can be added.Cleat GuidanceThese MTB shoes are compatible with MTB pedal systems, which use cleats with SPD standard (2-bolt standard), e.g.: Shimano SPD, Time ATAC, CrankBrothers, CrankBrothers Race, Look MTB, Xtreme MTB, Wellgo MTB, Ritchey MTB.
