New Fizik Downhill and Enduro Shoes

Designed to take you down the mountain, fast and in control

(press release)

fizik fully commit to the MTB market announcing Gravita – a range of MTB shoes developed to better blend protection and performance for downhill and enduro riders. A team of industry-leading experts, engineers, and top DH athletes have spent months designing, refining, and real-world testing to come up with not one, but two Gravity-riding models—the Gravita Tensor and Gravita Versor MTB shoes.

With the new Gravita seriesfizik have set out to check all the boxes for competition-leading downhill and enduro MTB riders, resulting in shoes that are lightweight and nimble, yet protective and rugged, and able to enhance bike control through the pedals by offering a precise, performance fit.

 

To avoid the bulky fit of traditional downhill MTB shoes, both Gravita models feature lightweight, resilient ripstop nylon uppers and water-resistant, pared-down internal padding together with an all-new Gravita outsole in both flat and clipless versions. With Vibram® Megagrip rubber compound in a zonal lug pattern providing the best shoe-to-pedal interface, the flat pedal tread is positioned center of the sole for immediate engagement with pedal pins but cut deeper at the toe and heel for better grip when hiking on loose terrain. The clipless Gravita versions are designed with a stiffened outsole and extended cleat track for optimized pedaling efficiency, stability, and control.

Supportive, protective, and stable, the Gravita Tensor features fizik’s anatomical Ergolace closure system overlaid by a Tensor Powerstrap for locked-in stability and lossless power transfer. To guard against the risks of rowdy riding, the Gravita Tensor comes equipped with a TPU-armoured toe box, raised inner-ankle profile, and laminated scuff guard on high contact areas.

The Gravita Versor adopts a more minimalistic approach to adrenaline-fueled gravity riding, swapping the Powerstrap and extra ankle protection for a slimmer profile and lighter shoe that’s ideal when mixing up DH laps with trail riding.
