Movistar team issue.
Team Movistar always seems to find itself at the top of the WorldTour rankings and that really doesn't come as a surprise. The squad has a good mix of experienced veterans and motivated up and comers providing a pool deep in talent with exciting riders to watch like grand tour hopeful Nairo Quintana, classics specialist and stage sniper Alejandro Valverde, and Marc Soler who can win a one-week stage race and feature in a day-long breakaway in Roubaix. His comparison to Miguel Indurain is valid and apparent both in his riding and physical appearance giving the Spanish fans something to cheer for. And if you root for Movistar or are just looking for the right amount of white and blue accent on your road cycling shoes, check out the R1 Infinito Movistar Limited Edition Shoe from Fi'zi:k, and push the pedals in comfort, efficiency, and style. This shoe is designed to exceed the expectations of Team Movistar and satisfy the climbers, sprinters, and domestiques.
The shoe features class-leading power transfer and an unbelievable fit making it the ultimate platform for competitive racers and the most discerning of cyclists. As Fi'zi:k's top-flight road shoe, the R1 Infinito is extremely lightweight at only 232 grams, conforms brilliantly to your foot with its Increased Volume Control, and harnesses the watts with its unidirectional carbon sole.
Fi'zi:k uses dual Boa IP1-B dials to draw the Microtex upper to the exact shape of your foot without any pressure points or hotspots plaguing you throughout your riding and racing efforts. It calls this Increased Volume Control and it ensures a glove-like fit regardless if you have slightly wider or narrower feet. The entire system tightens with steel-coated nylon laces running through textile guides that evenly distribute pressure as you tighten each Boa dial.
Looking to the R1 Infinito's sole, you'll reap the benefits of unidirectional carbon that's laterally stiff, lightweight underfoot, and ventilated to help regulate temperatures on those stifling summer days. This extremely stiff carbon sole makes sure every watt of energy is directed into moving forward during racing scenarios and training rides where every second counts.

- Q & A
I wear a size 44 Sidi, what size should I get for Fizik?
Hey Tony, these are the brand new version of the R1 so they have an updated last that is more neutral than the previous R1 which favored a narrower foot. I would go straight across to a 44 in this shoe, feel free to reach out to your Gearhead and they'd be happy to get them out to you today.
