In our quest to make the best-performing shoe possible, we used less, reducing the amount of material for the upper as well as the full carbon-fiber sole.
In our quest to make the best-performing shoe possible, we used less, reducing the amount of material for the upper as well as the full carbon-fiber sole. Re-engineering the sole was a 24-month process, during which we worked to concentrate carbon only where needed, resulting in a 22% weight savings over the previous plate. The sock-like fully knit upper means we can tune each zone for the right level of flexibility and retention, plus there’s no waste from trimming; we use it exactly as it is finished. And by bonding nearly all of the seams, we have created a shoe that weighs less and offers greater comfort due to less bulk.
SHOE CARE AND MAINTENANCE: Clean mud off with a damp sponge and then stuff the inside of the shoes with paper to help absorb moisture and maintain shape. Never clean shoes in a washing machine. Keep the outsole clean by scrubbing with a soft brush when needed. Air dry at room temperature. Do not dry the shoes by a fire, radiator or other heat source. Do not leave them in your car on a hot day. Extreme, direct heat can cause the materials to dry out or crack. This will damage your shoes and void your warranty.
