In honour of the Cobbled Classics and the bold riders who accept their challenge, Fizik presents the new Les Classiques Tempo Overcurve R4 road shoes and limited-edition artist print, for those ready to answer the call of the cobbles.
Engineered to perform on the pavé, the new Les Classiques deliver power from the ground up with the Tempo Overcurve R4 shoes. Built around a moderately stiff R4 outsole to strike a balance between comfort and pedalling efficiency,
these versatile road shoes utilize an asymmetrical “Overcurve” collar to follow the foot’s natural shape and a micro-adjustable Boa IP1 dial for easy, secure adjustments, no matter how tough the terrain.
Furthering Les Classiques, Fizik has partnered with famed Italian printing house, Tipoteca Italiana, to release a limited-edition artist print honouring the heroic riders from some of cycling’s most storied races. Beyond producing prints, Tipoteca Italiana serves as a museum and archive, educating visitors and preserving the tradition of classic printing techniques — an ideal partner for Fizik’s homage to the history of the revered Cobbled Classics. Letterpress-printed in stark relief, “The Call of the Cobbles” presents a simple call to action to riders ready for the rough stuff.
