GaerneCreated to meet the needs of the most demanding cross-country mountain bike rider, the Gaerne Kobra Plus MTB SPD Cycling Shoes offer a precise, easily adjustable fit and a balanced performance for pedalling efficiency and comfort. For rapid progress across rough terrain, you’ll be hard-pressed to beat the Kobra Plus MTB SPD Cycling Shoes. A snug and comfortable fit is achieved via a microfiber upper. This gives you a stable pedalling platform while laser-cut vents keep cool air circulating as you build up speed. An integrated anti-slip heel cup holds the foot firmly in place, won’t deform when pressure is applied and the anti-tendonitis form allows for the best foot stability and controlPedalling performance is also enhanced via TSS technology. Standing for “Tarsal Support System”, this maintains the ideal foot position within the shoe, allowing for a more natural and efficient pedal stroke. You also benefit from the EPS Transpirant insole. The anatomical shape offers support and comfort, while perforations are used to regulate temperature. BOA Dial BrillianceTo Customise the fit and feel of the shoes, you’ll enjoy the use of the proven Boa Li2 system. This system allows precise adjustment and a uniform fit across the foot while removing any pressure points. Twist. Adjust. Ride. And because the ‘lacing’ is so minimal, it allows for greater air circulation and hence greater comfort. Boa Technology also guarantees the reels and the cables of the BOA closing system for the entire useful life of the product.EPS Carbon Power MTB Sole 8.0Combining Gaerne’s Carbon technology with Michelin’s grip know-how, the EPS Carbon Power MTB Sole 8.0 gives smooth, efficient power transfer on the bike and confident traction over any terrain. The sole unit uses Nylon reinforced with Carbon, achieving a balance of stiffness, 8 out of 12 on Gaerne’s stiffness rating, and flexibility to soak up small bump vibrations and excellent walkability off the bike.
