Unrelenting power transfer for wide feet.
The Mavic Men's Cosmic Ultimate II Wide Shoes retain the space-age tech and carbon fiber rigidity of the standard version, but in a higher volume shape that alleviates foot cramping for wide-footed riders. Designed for the needs of the British racing team, JLT Condor, the Cosmic Ultimate II delivers unwavering power transfer within an ultra-light design. Tipping the scales at a paltry 240 grams, the Cosmic Ultimate II Shoes are about as lightweight as possible, but without sacrificing energy transmission, ergonomic comfort, and sensitivity for discerning riders.
Slightly re-tweaked over the original, the Cosmic Ultimate II features Mavic's Ergo Dial lacing system with 1mm incremental adjustments. Two Ergo Dials improve its overall fit and adjustability, especially compared to the lower hook-and-loop straps found on the first iteration. The rest of the shoe remains very similar, thanks to its super-thin bonded upper that sheds grams while optimizing airflow with generous venting. Other comfort-enhancing features include an Ergo 3D tongue that maximizes breathability and cushioning, as well as an Ergo 3D+ Ortholite footbed with dual-density foam and EVA arch support.
Maximizing power, the Energy Full Carbon SLR sole gives competitive riders an advantage in pedaling efficiency. Extremely stiff, yet ultra-thin at only 5.5mm, this carbon sole balances unrelenting power transfer with enhanced sensitivity. Displaying just how efficient the sole is, it's backed by a perfect 100/100 rating on Mavic's energy transfer index. The carbon advantage doesn't end there. Mavic equipped these shoes with an Energy Frame Carbon weave and Energy Lock Carbon heel counter, both of which maximize power transfer by eliminating slop when you're cranking at full power.
Note that the Cosmic Ultimate II Wide Shoes come with the recommended 8mm screws and a mesh bag for convenient storage and transport.
