Extreme XC for marathons, complete with Extreme XC upper. The
triple-density Speedlight 3D Carbon sole ensures exceptional
power across the pedal area and that extra flex you appreciate after miles in the saddle.
Speedlight Carbon 3D Sole:
Full carbon sole. The 3 carbon layers drastically reduce thickness while increasing stiffness. The AirFlow system prevents overheating of the sole and therefore the foot itself.
The main goal of the BioMap product line is to make your body work more efficiently so you can deliver your best performance. BioMap products guarantee an excellent fit, the best comfort, the best performance and the most efficient use of an athlete's muscles. When a cyclist’s muscles are being exerted, they need maximum strength and power and the NRG products help to optimize the transfer of power to the pedals thanks to the special combination of 4 materials that act in a specific way in each part of the body.
Integrated Heel System:
The new unibody construction of the uppers allowed to integrate an efficient heel retention system inside the structure, without the need of external elements. Same efficiency, reduced weight.
Microinjected protections: Upper with microinjected reinforced protection to protect your feet from any injuries caused by branches or stones while out on the trails.
Extreme Air Footbed: Ultralight, anallergic and antibacterial, it keeps your feet amazingly fresh with numerous vents that correspond with the vents on the sole.
No-slip heel: The interior of the upper in the heel area has been lined with a specific gripping material whose fibers oriented in a single way facilitate the entrance but at the same time prevent the heel from slipping, providing a perfect foot hold.
S.L.W. 2: Maximum precision and usability. The side button
offers dual functionality: press the button for micrometric release, or lift the button to instantly undo the shoe completely.
The ergonomic shape of the ratchet base matches the shape of the foot for added comfort, while the size and minimized weight plus the outer soft-touch covering make it easier and better to grip. It features wires that harness the best technologies used in sailing, and can be easily replaced using the spare parts kit.
It's really too soon to review this shoe in full but I just have to remark on how comfortable they are. I completely forgot they were brand new and that I was wearing them for the first time. I felt no pressure points and more importantly no heel slip.
