Here's what others have to say...

I'm NOT a racer, just a hobby/health rider; not competitive.

I bought a pair of the Zxellium Ultimates a few months back and really like those shoes a lot. Those are all black, causing me to worry about heat in the summer months.

I spotted some of the white/black Pro's on BT for under a bill and figured I get a backup/summer pair of shoes. I can't believe the quality of shoe for the price.

There's only a hand full of differences that I can see between the Pro Road and the Zxellium Ultimates.
1) The Pro's don't have a shoe bag... no big deal.
2) The Pro's have a normal detached tongue (like most tennis shoes), and the Zxellium Ultimate's tongue is only detached on one side; the end result is that Pro is easier to get on and off IMO.
3) The material seems a little harder or more plastic like on the Zxellium.
4) The strap nearest the toe does not have as much adjustability in the Pro model as the Zx Ult.
5) A HUGE weight difference of, get ready: 7-8 grams per shoe with full hardware installed (by my scale).

If someone was deciding between the ZX, ZX Ultimate, or the Pro Road, I would get the Pro Road hands down. That is, unless that someone is a racer and real competitive; I don't know how important the 16 grams would be.

I'm just getting into winter rides; made possible by the great prices of cc, BT, and RC.com. I got a pair of these for $65 or so. I wanted to order more, but I didn't have any Capo stuff at the time, so I wasn't sure of the fit. I'm about 5'8" and 150 lbs and the medium fits me perfect; a little better than Castelli mediums (Capo appears to be a tad larger).

Man, I really like these. The padding is very comfortable, and the fuzzy lining is perfect. I do agree with Mark... I wouldn't personally wear these above 50 F as they are quite warm. but I have worn them at 35 F no wind and 42 F with a LOT of wind; and they kept me very comfortable.

After attempting some cold weather rides last year without the right gear, I never would have guessed how nice winter riding could be. It's amazing what a little preparation will do. I pair these with one of the Capo jackets, and no base layers, and I am as snug as a bug (in a rug of course).

I've seen these on BT for mid $80's and held out... stupid. Now they're out of mediums and the price is higher. If I would have known, I would have ordered at least 3-5 sets of these; oh well, lesson learned.

This winter, I started collecting winter gear... trying to avoid the trainer if possible. After getting tights, jackets, overshoes, etc; I started trying the colder rides. Keep in mind, I live in NW GA, so we don't have frigid temps and blizzards, but it does get quite cold.

With the above mentioned gear, the first thing I noticed was everything seemed warm into the mid 30's, except my head and ears. This made me miserable for about the first 15 minutes of riding. I had eyeballed this skull cap for a while, but I was waiting to get it on sale.

After the wait, and never seeing it on sale; I took advantage of combining it with a smaller order to put me over the free shipping mark.

I must say that this thing appears to be worth every penny. I have ridden in some pretty chilly temps down to about 35 F with this. My head (and my ears) were very comfortable. But, most impressive to me, was my ride yesterday. Not the coldest at 42 F, but 20-25 MPH winds... I wasn't even phased. Comfy head, good ride.

These are my first shoe covers. I wanted something that was light weight and would absorb moisture and dirt. These are the ticket. At under $30 for a water-proof cover, you can't beat it. The inside is a tad insulated, so I use them for our mild North GA winter. I've worn these down to 35 F with the Zxellium Ultimate shoes and have had no issues. I would guess with some good socks, these would be good to about 30 F or so... perfect for our area. I've worn these with my new shoes and so far my shoes still look brand new. That's definitely an added benefit. I may get a white pair for summer riding.

My first pair of riding shoes were some cheap Shimano's... fit good and worked, but were one of those super ventilated shoes. They were not ideal for cold riding at all. I figured it was time for an upgrade on shoes and started shopping online.

I had ordered some DMT's prior to these... ones with the ratched/cable system. They were beautiful shoes, but the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever tried (including motocycle racing boots). The fit was terrible for my foot. I began to lose heart and considered going to a LBS. But that meant spending 2-3x the money.

I broke down and ordered (2) pairs of Mavics (something I saw another reviewer do); one of the Zxellium Ultimate in 9 and one of the Zxellium in 9.5. I liked both of the shoes, and I figured I would let fate decide which I kept. It turns out that the Zxellium Ultimate in the 9 was perfect for me. My feet are pretty 'regular', maybe a little on the slim side. For reference, I wear a 9 in Redwing work boots, and a 9.5 in Sketcher shoes. My Shimano road shoes are also a 43, so the 9 sizing seems very true. Keep in mind the velcro portions are also adjustable (the little flap can be moved to 3 different settings, besides the velcro adjustability), so unless your feet are quite wide, these should be fine.

I have worn these shoes on a couple of 25-30 mile rides, and have been nothing but impressed from the beginning. They seem to need very little breaking in for comfort and are noticeably stiffer than my cheaper Shimano shoes. I have ridden in 35 F with very thin shoe covers with no problems at all.

If you are unsure on your sizing, I would recommend ordering a couple of sizes and returning the ones that don't fit... saves a lot of time and frustration.
