The latest addition to Fizik’s gravel shoe range, the Ferox have been designed expressly for the rigours of off-road racing. 

A laminated-mesh upper has been employed to lower the weight and bulk of the shoes without – Fizik claims – sacrificing their durability. The sole is made from unidirectional carbon fibre and scores a full 10/10 on Fizik’s own stiffness scale for maximum power transfer.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
