Rumor has it, Fizik received input from professional cyclists before making changes to their newest cycling shoe. The R1 Boa’s most notable new feature is the asymmetrical closure design, which Fizik is referring to as volume control. Volume Control concists of two independently wired Boa IP1 dials, an adjustable heel cup, and a pull-over flap that’s shaped to wrap the foot rather than just strap it in. The customizable fit of this shoe truly allows riders to dial in comfort according to their own unique foot shape. In terms of ventilation, Fizik pulled out all of the stops. In order to help keep your feet cool and your cranks turning, Fizik incorporated three air intake vents, internal channeling, and an exhaust vent system into the design of this shoe. Seriously, these shoes are no joke, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see more and more pros sporting them in races in the next few months.
