NEW 11 Carbon/Composite Sole® is engineered for high-performance, high-mileage cyclists, with stiffness for power transfer and some controlled flex in the toe area that biomechanically relieves stress in the plantar tendon. This makes it ideal for triathlon as it helps promote circulation and isn’t as punishing on the foot, leaving you more for the run.
To test the rigidity of the 11 Carbon/Composite Sole® SIDI engineers hung a 50kg (110 lb) weight from one shoe: sole flex was measured at only 2.4 mm.. Previous Carbon Composite sole measured at 3 mm, a 20% increase in rigidity.
The 11 Carbon/Composite Sole® is constructed from layered 3k weave carbon fiber and injected carbon fiber in a matrix of Nylon 12, an ideal material as it is completely non-absorbent to water and mechanically stable so it won’t change rigidity from exposure to heat, humidity or from aging. It is an exceptionally light, stiff, durable sole.
An anti-slip insert in the toe and replaceable polyurethane heel pad help get you navigate through transitions.
The Carbon Composite Sole® is compatible with the best pedal systems available, and includes a printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale on the sole as well as the Look Memory Eyelet® for easy cleat alignment and replacement.
