Product Launch: Mechanism PNS x fizik

17th April, Pozzoleone, Italy: Danish cycling kit pioneers Pas Normal Studios and fizik, the Italian brand known for their innovative performance cycling shoes and saddles, have unveiled their latest collaboration – Mechanism PNS x fizik – a new road cycling shoe born exclusively from the partnership.

Designed to perform at the highest level and integrate the sleek style of the Danish apparel brand, the all-new Mechanism road shoe is at ease with the demands road cyclists require. 

Dial up the performance 

The sleek uppers utilize a resilient polyurethane-laminated material combined with a comfortable mesh, which results in reduced yield and provides long-lasting foot support where it’s needed most. The BOA® Fit System, featuring the metallic Dual-Dial Li2, allows bi-directional and differentiated fit adjustments for the instep and forefoot areas, delivering the precise, locked-in feel that racers demand.

Born to power pedals

At the base, fizik’s R2 outsole features an engineered carbon fiber layup that saves weight and delivers increased stiffness, with a stiffness index rating of 10, making this outsole the most responsive in the fizik range. A wide vent inlet and deep internal channeling provide cooling airflow, aiding temperature regulation while riding. The cleat positioning is set slightly further back compared to traditional settings to optimize pedaling efficiency and reduce knee compression—especially well-suited for very aggressive, forward aero positions adopted by racing cyclists.
