This new cycling shoe has been studied down to the smallest detail to fulfill the expectations of even the most demanding cyclist:
Lightness: this shoe is super lightweight and weighs only 275 grams, this bringing the weight down to within 25% less than that of it’s predecessor.
Comfort: it has no pressure points thanks to the innovative Boa closure system which guarantees accuracy, durability and comfort.
The patented closure system BOA L5 consists of two micro adjustable reels and cable made of stainless steel. The combination of these elements allows the rider to obtain uniform fastening and due to the absence of Velcro straps, greater circulation of air on the front of the foot is possible.
Boa Technology guarantees the reels and the cables of the BOA closing system for the entire useful life of the product.
Breathability: The upper is made of microfiber with laser-drilling and mesh inserts positioned laterally. Together with the new anatomical tongue the shoe provides excellent breathability and a perfect climate for the rider.
Ventilation: The new full carbon sole "EPS LIGHT WEIGHT FULL CARBON SOLE" guarantees absolute lightness and rigidity. The ultra-thin thickness of the carbon allows the foot to be positioned at a minimal distance from the pedal, thus allowing maximum power whilst pedaling without loss of energy. Two channels positioned in the sole ensure perfect ventilation to the foot during use. Non-slip rubber inserts in the front and back of the sole provide security whilst walking. The rear insert is replaceable. Sole is compatible with all clipless pedals.
The new sole "GAERNE EPS CARBON SPEEDPLAY" guarantees absolute lightness and rigidity. Thanks to the perfect positioning of the holes, allowing a wider range of adjustment and a larger decline of the cleat compared to other soles currently on the market. This new sole has received Speedplay approval as indicated sole itself. Non-slip rubber inserts in the front and back of the sole provide security whilst walking. The rear insert is replaceable.
Carbon Heel Cup : All-new injection-molded carbon anatomic heel-cup will not deform or weaken. With it’s anti-tendonitis form and internal non-slip treatment it allows for the best foot stability and control. Reflective inserts provide maximum visibility in low-light conditions.
U Control Heel System: Exclusive heel control system, ensuring the correct position during use whilst retaining the foot in the correct position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rebwag Best shoes I have ever had!
I had to wait quite a while for the Speedplay version to come into the UK-but it was worth the wait-they are without doubt the comfiest pair of shoes I have owned-the Boa fasteners are perfectly adjustable-no hot spots anywhere-cleats fitted easily-they are expensive but worth every penny
