High performance carbon outsole for road cycling designed and developed for FIZIK

The new carbon outsole design provides highest support and control at lowest weight.
The outsole technology features a uni-directional carbon fiber layup with integrated ventilation channeling that further enhances both cooling and aerodynamics. It combines the proven supportive and comfortable FIZIK Cycling Insole Technology with sculpted footbeds and supportive heel to ensure that every precious watt is directed straight into your pedals.

DQBD designed the carbon-fiber outsole for FIZIK. The road cycling shoe "R1B" is equipped with this high performance outsole.

The color-study by DQBD shows an example of the possibilities of using different colors. By using digital prototypes fast decisions can be made before creating physical prototypes.
