Description

Vento X3 Overcurve Cycling Shoe

Built to hit up the singletrack, cross course, or gravel road in style and comfort comes the Vento X3 Overcurve Shoe from Fi'zi:k. Just as we've experienced from other shoes in its lineup, the Vento is designed to fit your foot precisely and comfortably while offering protection and transferring all of your watts into the pedals whether that's hot laps after work or on race day. Using its new Overcurve construction, the shoe features a staggered foot opening that ergonomically contours around the foot, taking the natural misalignment of the ankle’s two bony protrusions, the lateral and medial malleoli, into account. The end result is an asymmetrical shape that’s quite comfortable and secures the foot for excellent pedaling.

The upper consists of the typical Microtex microfiber material that we're used to seeing from Fi'zi:k. It's super supple for a superb fit and comfortable pedaling yet durable and abrasion resistant for long life. Instead of using stitching that can lead to weak points and tears, the Vento Overcurve X3 is constructed using welding and laminated reinforcements. This not only makes the shoe lighter, more durable, and easier to clean, it helps improve the fit and reduces potential points that can lead to excessive friction, abrasion, and irritation.

Cinching down that upper on your feet is a simple and secure micro-adjustable BOA IP1 dial. Getting into and out of the shoes is a simple affair as is making quick adjustments on the fly. Down below is the X3 carbon injected sole. This stiff platform is minimal, saving weight, and rigid for efficient power transfer. When the time comes to dismount for a hike-a-bike or hurdling the barriers, a durable TPU outsole with an aggressive tread pattern grips tenaciously on terra firma and sheds mud easily.

  • A durable, race-worthy offroad shoe from Fizik
  • Microtex upper conforms to your foot yet is highly durable
  • Boa dial closure system quickly and easily locks in your fit
  • Overcurve construction contours the opening to your ankle anatomy
  • Injected carbon outsole with TPU tread offers grip off the bike and power while clipped in

Great shoe. Best I've owned.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
Runs large
Size Bought
43
Weight

I've been riding mtb for about 25 years now and have tried many shoes so I've got a good base to which I can compare. The only caveat is that I've only had these shoes a short while but have already put almost 30 hours on them. Most of my rides are between 2 and 3 hours so I'm in the shoe long enough to tease out any "issues" the shoe may have with fit. They check all the boxes for a great mtb shoe. Fit. They fit my foot great. Snug where it needs to be but still leaves room for the toes. The lace system allows you to snug the shoe down perfectly. No slop. No heel lift. I think they run a bit large. I'm usually a 44 or 45 but needed to go with a 43 on these. I do have a relatively "low volume" foot. I don't think the fore foot is narrow in this shoe. Other brands I can say are narrower. These are certainly not narrow in the toe either, unlike many other brands. The instep an heel area is probably on the "snugger" side. For me that is good. That is where I want a solid fit. It prevents heel lift and slop in the shoe under hard pedaling and pulling. For the reviews that mention lack of mobility of the shoe's tongue... The tongue is held in place by small velcro-like tabs that attach to the inside of the shoe's instep area. No mesh. Love it. Many of us ride in the cold and damp. Mesh shoes let water in but not out. In the hot summer, let's face it, your feet will be warm - mesh or no mesh. Let's ditch the mesh on more mtb shoes. Supportive sole but still ok for hike a bike sections. Near perfect balance I'd say. The grip is excellent and has held up well. The stuff I ride is techie and at times requires hike a bike sections. Even includes dancing on rocks on stream crossings. I might put a slightly thicker insole in but not sure about that yet. Simple. Minimal seams to leak, break down, or tear. This is my first shoe with a Boa and I hope it holds up. All black. No silly color schemes. Light weight. Probably the lightest mtb shoe I've owned. I have other good mtb shoes in the rotation and they have their niche uses. But now these own the top spot. I like them so much I'll likely buy a backup pair. I could give a comparison to quite a few other shoes I have owned or currently own but will simply say, thus far these are my favorite. The others include shoes from Sidi, Specialized, Giro, and Five Ten.

Narrow & Boa

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

As one other person said these shoes fit a bit narrow, this seems to be a trend for Fizik as I have another pair of their shoes that fits about the same. At first I thought the choice of a single boa was great as I really don't like the combo shoes where it's part boa part velcro but it doesn't actually work out that great. I find that it's hard to get the right pressure/tightness along my whole foot with only a single point of adjustment, I usually have to pull the boa straps out and feed them around a bit so that when it tightens it does so in the right places. The ventilation is good and the build quality is fantastic, as you'd expect from Fizik, despite the above comments I love these shoes and continue to wear them all the time for gravel and even mountain biking.

I use this for my road bike and gravel bike and have been very happy with the shoe. I did add my own inserts but otherwise the combination of the shoe and the Shimano XTR pedals has been fantastic. I cycle for fun, so it's great to be able to clip in on both sides and be able to walk in the shoe. I didn't try any other gravel specific shoes so I feel like I lucked out with my first choice. I highly recommend this shoe!

Good Fizik Fit

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit:
Runs small
Size Bought
46

If you know your Fizik fit then this shoe will fit similarly. I have a 280 mm length foot with width varying at around 110 mm so slightly wide and the 46 fits comparable to my street shoe of 11.5. If you have narrower feet you probably could size according to their chart. If your feet run slightly on the wider side then you will want to go with your "euro" street shoe size. These shoes have a good forefoot platform with a lot of room for the toes to stretch and the nice heel fit typical of other Fiziks and while the single Boa seems somewhat limiting it was easy enough to get a good fit right out of the box. The sole isn't quite as stiff as a pure carbon sole so this might be better as a training/rec. level shoe. If you're looking for maximum stiffness this probably won't cut it for you but for an everyday shoe that's easy to put on, take off, and keep clean this seems like a winner.

Too Narrow!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The shoes are very well made, but the design really lacks! I have narrow feet but still had trouble with the fit being too narrow. There would be no way I could use the shoes with heavy wool socks for winter riding. Only the thinnest of socks will fit. The tongue doesn’t open up which adds to the difficulty of putting a foot in.

I'm pretty sure you picked the wrong size. I have this shoe and it fits the same as my other pair of Fizik road shoes. In my experience the sizing conversion for Fizik tends to run small. For example, I am a street shoe of 11.5 and wear a 46 which Fizik calls a 12 while others will call it 11.5 or 11.75. My experience is that Fizik tends to be slightly wider than other brands with good heel fit and a lot of room in the toebox to stretch your toes out. I have a slightly wide foot for the length and if I had chosen to size down from my street shoe the fit would have been narrow but I would not recommend that for this shoe.

Can you please provide the stiffness rating for this shoe? Thanks

Slick Rick

I bought these for my wife to use in her cycling classes and as she starts to ride a bike. Overall, she's very satisfied. They fit to size if you're going of Euro measurements, the US sizing put her at half to full size smaller than what she typically wears. She says these are extremely comfortable, likes the BOA lacing and likes the way they look.
