When The Going Gets Tough

The Fizik X5 Terra Artica GTX is their off-road winter cycling shoe, insulated and equipped with a breathable, waterproof GORE-TEX membrane, it is a versatile shoe, reliable for all-terrain riding, gravel grinding, mountain biking and beyond.

No matter how harsh the climate and whatever adventure you have planned, this shoe is built to protect you from the most severe cold, wet weather

Cozy Interior

Inside the shoe, a soft, brushed-fleece lining increases both insulation and comfort, for an added cozy layer of defense against winter's worst elements, be that a ride in freezing rain or a full-on spin in the snow.

The advanced GORE-TEX Koala membrane technology is optimized for better breathability, which means that while wet weather conditions are stopped at the surface, moisture molecules from sweat vapor inside the shoe can easily escape through billions of tiny pores, for warmer, drier feet on cold, wet winter cycling adventures.

Rugged Exterior

Outside, a high-density PU-laminated upper is the perfect match to the lightweight GORE-TEX membrane, combining resilience with streamlined warmth for a nimble shoe that retains a high level of durability. The addition of a Velcro strap secures the ankle in place, while a single L6 BOA® dial makes micro fit adjustments easy, even with bulky winter gloves.

Now more versatile than ever, Fizik have redesigned the X5 outsole for better grip and more traction in slippery winter conditions. Equipped with generous studs and a rubber coating that covers the entire surface, including the mid-foot, the X5 outsole provides sure footing when steep, rough tracks require you to hike with your bike.


  • GORE-TEX Insulated Koala membrane
  • Soft fleeced lining
  • High-density PU upper + Ripstop fabric
  • L6 BOA® dial D Fit System
  • X5 nylon and rubber outsole, stiffness index 5
  • Weight: 432 g

Incredible just like the road version

I have these also in the road version, and of course, fit and everything is the same, no change other than the cleat interface. I'm a 44 in the road version, 44 in the mtb version, identical, which is a bonus.

To speak of the functionality of the shoe, they're a gamechanger for cold riding. I'm a racer, and to get my volume up I took up bike commuting. My shortest door to door is 10 miles, my "normal" is about 17, if I really want a flat spin it's 21 miles, so half hour to about 75 minute range one way. When I have left the house and it's been 10 to 12 degrees (F), I can wear these, with a normal cycling merino wool sock, and get to work with warm feet.

The main bonus for me is that I don't need shoe covers. I absolutely hate wrestling them on at 4am when I leave, this is easier, shoe, tighten, go.

I've had them soaked with slushy roads as well, and my feet did not get wet. You will get wet from water getting down into the shoe around the ankle if you are in really bad stuff, you can probably get around it with some better dressing but I've been okay.

I'm not a huge fan of the high top from a looks standpoint, it's bulky and looks weird, and I swear it makes my feet flex less, but when you have warm feet in really cold weather, you don't care.

They're my go-to in temps under 35 (F). When I'm in a sunny upper 30's and above, I can use a normal road shoe with wool, and maybe a toe cover. Over 40 (F) and these are way too warm, even with summer socks.

Great shoes though for the purpose, if you ride in bad weather, these are a gamechanger.

Not warm enough

These are a great shoe concerning construction etc. I sized up .5 size from my summer FiZik shoes to fit a thicker sock.

Waterproofing is good, but these are just not as warm as I wanted them to be. Anything below 45 F and my toes are frozen. I have been using toe covers and those help, but for something being advertised as a winter shoe I expected more in the warmth department

These shoes are amazing

These shoes are amazing, fit snug but comfortable, warm in cold and dry in rain. I wanted to have gear for any weather conditions that the Iowa winter could throw at me. They are great on gravel and even endurance road rides.

Comfortable mild winter shoe/boot

For a Fizik shoe this does have a generous fit, not as narrow as most. Shoe is comfortable and certainly repels water/snow. I expected/hoped the shoe would be a bit warmer, but this may be down to the sock one pairs it with. A thinner merino wool sock is good down to maybe 25-F or so, ideally I would throw a thicker sock on for colder days but that made the shoe a bit too tight for my liking. I would say that this shoe's primary function is to keep the foot dry during the shoulder season and extend into a mild winter.

Best In Every Feature

Been riding since 1970's with wool socks, tin foil, plastic bags, GoreTex socks and shoe covers. So with that I went for ride Jan. 1st with temperatures reaching 35 degrees and 10 mph winds. Never felt a bit of cold discomfort and fit with heavy wool socks was superb. I forgot the puddles and snow while riding, so check off waterproof also.

So much better than booties

Paired with some merino wool socks these are an excellent addition to my winter kit and far less hassle than overshoes- especially at the end of a long cold ride.

For truly brutal weather you could still add some booties for extra wind protection

The Fizik X5 Terra Arctica GTX performs as advertised.

Went for a 30 mile road ride recently. The temperature when I left the house was 40 degrees F. Wore one pair of Smartwool medium weight socks. Feet stayed toasty the entire ride. A great addition to my Fall/ Winter riding kit!
