The Mavic Pro Road shoe has a very thin 5.5mm full carbon sole to provide stiffness and a low 7mm stack height to be as close to the pedal spindle as possible for efficient power transfer just like the Zxellium. Styling on the white/black version is spot on with a particularly nice contrast between the white synthetic upper and black mesh. We also find the fit of the Pro Road works very well for a wide range of riders and foot shapes.
The carbon Energy Lock heel holder keeps the heel in place and is 50% lighter than molded heel cup. This shoe is compatible with 3-hole cleats and there is a textured section to keep the cleat from slipping as well as toe and heel pads to protect the sole when walking.
The Mavic Pro road includes a preshaped 2 density composite insole with a high density rear heel cradle with Agion anti bacterial treatment. Venting and comfort are enhanced by a ergonomical tongue with 3D instep EVA comfort zone while mesh inserts for moisture management and supple micro fiber.To comfortably secure the foot, Mavic uses a low profile, lightweight Ergo Lite ratchet with highly precise adjustment. An ergonomically designed release mechanism prevents accidental opening. Along the Ergo Lite ratchet, Mavic uses two Ergo Straps with integrated adjustability for enhanced fit. Strap length can be customized based upon individual foot shape and preference.
