When it comes to comfort the seamless upper is superb. The design reduces pressure points across the foot and gives a smooth and snug fit. You'll find the 3 hook and loop straps are an ever-reliable closure system and let you get the fit just right. They're easy to adjust on and off the bike and reliable in all weathers.
Ventilation is also optimised. Perorations on the upper and 5 sole vents keep air circulating around the foot, keeping your feet nicely cool as temperatures rise.
NRG Air carbon reinforced sole
When it comes to smooth pedalling performance, the NRG Air carbon-reinforced sole provides the ideal balance of stiffness and comfort. When putting the power down you'll enjoy rapid efficiency but at the same time, a degree of flex adds comfort when you're navigating rougher roads and racking up long rides.
