The absence of this season’s Spring Classics notwithstanding, Fizik pays homage to this year’s Monuments of Cycling with the launch of its special edition Tempo Overcurve R4 Les Classiques and Tempo Overcurve R5Paris 1969 cycling shoes.
The Tempo Overcurve R4 Les Classiques feature a durable polyurethane/laminate and mesh upper that’s designed to shield the cyclist’s feet from the elements, while also maintaining the requisite amount of ventilation.
To ensure proper fit, the shoe relies on a Boa IP1-B dial system and Fizik’s asymmetrical Overcurve shape, creating optimal conformity and stability from heel to toe.
Additionally, the Tempo Overcurve R4 Les Classiques gets upgraded to Fizik’s R4 composite sole, which consists of a mix of 15% carbon to 85% nylon for an improved stiffness index of 7/10. Moreover, breathability is further enhanced courtesy of more forefoot ventilation, along with rubber heel and toe blocks.
“Inspired by the tears and triumphs of the Monuments of Cycling, the Tempo Overcurve R4 Les Classiques edition road shoes deliver powerful performance, from pave to tarmac, with a mud-flecked motif announcing you’ll answer when the cobbles call,” says Fizik.
The 560g Tempo Overcurve R4 Les Classiques is available in sizes from 36 to 48, with half sizes in 37 to 47 for $200.
The similarly priced Tempo R5Paris 1969 takes on an even more retro look thanks to its black suede microtex upper, large perforated vents and sawtooth-edging. Moreover, the Tempo R5Paris 1969 also features Fizik’s Overcurve asymmetric upper, albeit with a single Boa IP1-B dial and a velcro strap.
“A special edition of the popular Tempo Overcurve R5,Tempo, the Overcurve R5Paris 1969 is a stylish and versatile quick-fit road cycling shoe that evokes a golden age of the world’s most famous bike race. The Tempo Overcurve R5Paris 1969 has been designed to echo the iconic look of the early 1970s while delivering the comfort and performance expected by today’s riders,” says Fizik.
