The Mavic Avenge road shoes has many features of a more expensive at a very reasonable price. The core of any high quality, modern road shoe is a stiff carbon sole. Mavic paid extra attention to detail in this area and brought us the Energy Carbon Comp sole. It features composite fiberglass, a nylon insert and carbon reinforcement. Not only is it stiff, but at 6mm, it's thin too. It provides the perfect platform for you to produce power to the pedals and still retain excellent road feel.
Part of the success story of Mavic's blossoming shoe line is a comfortable, supportive fit that is so good it borders on surprising. A mesh and synthetic upper gives the Avenge lightweight breathability plus updated looks. Mavic uses a Ergo 3D EVA foam padded tongue that places padding where it is needed for breathable comfort. Mavic includes their Ergo Fit 2 density pre-shaped insole with vibration dampening foam and high density heel cradle plus an Agion anti microbial treatment to minimize odors. Secure retention is accomplished with the proven Ergo Lite low profile buckle and two Vecro straps.
