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 a scant 6mm, it's thin too. It provides the perfect platform for you to produce power to the pedals and still retain excellent road feel.
The upper is a highly breathable and lightweight synthetic. Highlights include the Energy Lock heel cup. This positions your heel for maximum efficiency and surefootedness. The Clima Vent Tongue has good moisture wicking properties and slight cushion protects your instep. Simple buckle and Mavic's custom hook and loop Velcro tabs secure the shoe to your foot.
