The new Terra X5 promises improved comfort, performance, and protection for every rider on any terrain from trails and singletrack to a forest road.

The Terra X5 is adaptive; its Volume Control technology means improved fit through an asymmetric opening and the Boa L6 Dial B dial running steel-coated nylon laces through light, durable ‘Slipstream’ plastic guides. fi’zi:k combines the dial fastening with a single 25mm wide microfiber strap with Velcro fastener – the result is a light, easy to use and micro-adjustable closure system, providing a precision fit for any foot shape.

Thoughts => The Terra X5 looks very promising, and I liked the new suede option for the uppers since they add a distinctive styling. Offering the functional and highly tunable Boa dial system with their Volume Control technology should provide a better fit and additional comfort. The stiff carbon sole should give plenty of power to be applied to the pedals, and the rubber lugs will keep your feet firmly attached to the ground when walking. Some heel and toe reinforcement will protect the feet from trail obstructions and debris.

Terra X5 Features

Terra X5 has tough, protective yet highly breathable 1.4mm Perforated Microtex upper sides which work along with the inner mesh to offer excellent temperature regulation on the trails, for enhanced comfort and performance.

Generous PU bonded heel and toe sections join with PU lower instep and outstep sections to provide a shield from trail hazards while the tongue section offers subtle dorsal impact protection.

X5’s combination of laser-perforated Microtex and rubber coating ensures comfort, ventilation, and fit – yet remains tough enough for any riding conditions.

Riders can attack trails with confidence thanks to the all-terrain grip provided by pronounced treads, creating a sturdy support for riders preferring clipless pedals with a small platform. The carbon composite sole is light, tough and strong for efficient power transfer and benefits the rider with increased sole protection.

A light, tough woven tape heel loop easily attaches to backpacks to carry, store and allow the Terra X5 to dry.
