Fizik updates shoe colours and saddle range for 2019

Colourful new kicks and premium padded saddles coming soon

For 2019, Fizik has added a wealth of new colours to its shoe collection and has brought its Versus EVO saddle tech to its premium carbon saddle line.

Fizik’s premium Infinito shoe gained a knitted-upper variant last year. For 2019 the design remains unchanged, but it's added a slew of new knitted colourways in Gray Knit/Black, Petroleum Blue Knit/Yellow Fluro, Purple Knit/Blue.

Eagle-eyed Tour de France viewers should be able to see some of the new knits on the feet of Team Sky’s Geraint Thomas and AG2R La Mondiale’s Oliver Naesen.

Elsewhere in Fizik’s range, the all-rounder Aria R3 gets a new navy blue/white colour.

The XC/gravel biased Terra X5 gets a few options in addition to the suede upper that premiered last year in a stylish olive green with a contrasting orange sole.

In suede, Fizik has added an understated dark brown/sage green combo, and in the microtex upper version the company has added a two-tone green named the military/tangy green, and a bold dark blue/brick red variant.

Versus EVO goes pro

We’re fans of Fizik’s deeply-channelled and cleverly-padded Versus EVO range. The Versus channel offers pressure relief and the clever ‘comfort core padding’ alters both depth and density throughout the saddle for optimum comfort. The downside was that it was never available in Fizik's premium carbon lightweight 00 builds.

For 2019, that’s all changed with, yes, you guessed it, the Versus EVO 00. That means it now gets a premium hi-mod carbon hull mated to the latest incarnation of the loop-backed Mobius rail — an ultralight one-piece continuous fibre rail it claims helps provide unrivalled support for ideal weight distribution. 

The Versus EVO comes in all of FizIk’s long-established shapes: Aliante, Antares, and Arione, and also in both standard and large-width sizing.

Pricing and availability are still to be confirmed.
