Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Fizik Terra Atlas shoes are better suited to those with slightly wider feet than the more race-oriented options in the brand’s range - and succeed in being highly comfortable for longer rides. The lug design and rubber coated outsole also greatly improve the grip in muddy conditions and on hard, slippery surfaces. The fit would be even better with a second Boa dial, but for the price point, these are a great set of shoes.

Reasons to buy

    Durable

  • +

    Easy to wipe down

  • +

    Fairly roomy fit

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Only one dial

The Fizik Terra Atlas is an entry level gravel shoe that benefits from a single Boa dial retention system and a rubber coated sole for extra off-the-bike grip - whether that’s any hike-a-bike trail sections or nipping into a cafe, supermarket or restaurant on a bikepacking trip.

Although the Terra Atlas still doesn’t rank amongst the very cheapest gravel shoes, Fizik describes the Terra Atlas as the most versatile in its range - and if it can perform across disciplines and riding styles, it will go a long way to justifying its price and situating itself amongst the very best gravel shoes.

I’ve been hooked on bikes ever since the age of 12 and my first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in the bright yellow kit of the Hillingdon Slipstreamers. For a time, my cycling life centred around racing road and track. 


But that’s since broadened to include multiday two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain I happen to meet - with a two-week bikepacking trip from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia being just the latest.


I still enjoy lining up on a start line, though, racing the British Gravel Championships and finding myself on the podium at the enduro-style gravel event, Gritfest in 2022.
