Body Geometry features are a vital link between you and your bike, and you won't find them from anyone else. Every aspect has been ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and to reduce the chance of injury. Comfort like this wasn't an accident, it's science.
Did we have to use ply-by-ply carbon engineering developed for Formula One? Probably not. Was an extensive pressure mapping study performed by the same team that brought you Rider-First Engineering a bit overkill? Sure. We're not bashful that this is the most engineering ever put into a cycling shoe's outsole, though. And while it might “just” be an outsole to some, we see it as an extension of you. And you, friend, deserve the lightest and stiffest sole ever made.
The first PadLock™ Heel was slip-proof, but this came at the expense of some comfort. Not content, we digested a ton of rider feedback and then took on the challenge of injecting more comfort into the equation without any loss of the efficient power transfer we've all came to love. Our engineers nailed it—extra cookies for them.
We worked directly with BOA® to create dials like you’ve never seen before. These CNC’d alloy dials not only add panache, but they feature spring clutch internals and one-millimeter micro-adjustments. Durable. Precise. Perfect. And yeah, you won't find them anywhere else.
What happens when you take NASA parachute material use for atmospheric reentry and make some shoes out of it? You get a shoe so awesome all others are in its orbit. Dyneema® Mesh is extremely malleable and adaptive, but it doesn’t stretch when pulled. And in these shoes, it conforms to the contours of your foot for slipper-like comfort without any power loss. Oh yeah, and these are the only cycling shoes to feature this out-of-this-world material.
