Mavic's pricy Comete Ultimate road shoe coming to the US in summer

Published March 31, 2017

OGDEN, Utah (BRAIN) — Mavic's new $1,000 road shoe, the Comete Ultimate, will be available in North America in late summer, the company said this week. 

The shoe, released in Europe last week, has a two-piece construction, with a full carbon shell mated with swappable booties that are tailored for specific conditions.

The company said the design was inspired by ski boot construction and allows increased power transfer with lighter weight. "The shoe was designed to leverage the very latest understanding of biomechanics and bio-position, translating to new levels of pedaling efficiency and the sensation of "connectedness" with the bike throughout the entire 360 degrees of a pedal stroke," the company said. 

The shoe weighs 240 grams in size 8. Its stack height is 4.5mm, thinner than most shoes. Bootie options for rain, heat and cold are available.

Two Mavic Ergo Dials provide two-way micro adjustment for optimal fit and support. The company said the Ergo Dials, heel pad and V-plates are replaceable and will be sold as spare parts.
