Fully insulated, waterproof, yet breathable. These are the new all-terrain winter boots from Fizik, which are prepared for extreme weather conditions and will protect you in the worst weather, whether you're riding on a snowy trail, through a soggy forest or on gravel on wet gravel!
The Artica GTX is waterproof thanks to the GORE-TEX Koala membrane. This membrane doesn't let any water in, but it also vents moisture out of the shoe. The boots fasten quickly even in warm winter gloves with the easy to use BOA wheel and Velcro strap. The stiffness index 5 outsole is widened and rubberized for extra stability even on icy surfaces. The inside of the shoe, including the insole, is padded with fleece material to ensure thermal comfort even on the coldest days and is also very comfortable.
The Artica GTX is a winter MTB boot that won't make your feet sweat but won't get wet when you're running through a stream.
