Overall, a good deal if this sale price
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Overall, it's a good deal if this sale price is permanent or if there will be more discounts in the future. As you can see from the photo, there's already a small tear after going through a few wash cycles. It's very small and does not affect performance of the bib, so I'm still giving it four stars. Most importantly, the chamois is quite well made, and comfortable on long rides lasting about 5+ hours. I should have waited a month more before purchasing mine though, because this product is now $10 cheaper than what I paid for.

These shoes are very light. I think they are about 200g lighter than higher end Shimano shoes at triple the cost. The Mavic's sole is also very stiff without being uncomfortable. The toe box is a bit narrow, and consequently the fit is a bit snug. I like this style of fit though, because the velcro straps does not cover the entire soft velcro area. There's about 1 cm of exposed unconnected velcro "loop." This means that, as the fabric stretches a little over time, the velcro straps-the "hook" side-will eventually cover the entire loop side with a well broken in fit. It may take anywhere from 1-3 years for this to happen depending on how much one rides and in which climate. Therefore, I would not need to replace these shoes so soon. The toe box will appear a little pointy though, and some people may not like that look or slightly tight feel in that area. The ratcheting strap is very secure, which is important if you're a racer.
