Fully insulated, waterproof, yet breathable. These are the new Fizik winter road boots for cold and wet weather. The Artica GTX is waterproof thanks to the GORE-TEX Koala membrane used. This membrane doesn't let any water in, but at the same time ventilates moisture out of the boot. You can fasten the boots quickly even in thick winter gloves with the easy to use BOA wheel and Velcro strap. The nylon outsole with a stiffness index of 6 is rigid and has offset stop mounting points to the rear. The sole lacks ventilation for better heat insulation inside the shoe. The inside of the shoe, including the insole, is padded with fleece material, which ensures thermal comfort even on the coldest days and is also very comfortable.
The Tempo Artica GTX is a sleek winter road shoe that won't make your feet sweat, nor will it get wet on the wet downhill.
