CREATING PEDALING EFFICIENCY
OPTIMIZED SHOE LAST
The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedaling. Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles. Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form. Extensive research by Shimano's R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design with an optimized toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke. Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides, letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.
AROUND THE HUMAN FOOT
SHIMANO footwear is developed using our unique understanding of how the foot interfaces with the shoe and pedal to optimize comfort and maximize power transfer for smooth and efficient pedaling.
All SHIMANO footwear closures are anatomically designed to reduce pressure and tension on the highest points of the foot. By wrapping the foot securely and in a uniform method, comfort is improved and added power transmission created.
Every SHIMANO cycling shoe uses supple yet durable upper materials engineered together with our unique closure options to secure the foot firmly and comfortably without hot spots or pressure points.
Efficient power transfer demands a stiff and rigid sole that can result in heel slip. SHIMANO cycling footwear is engineered with lightweight internal or external 3D Anatomic heel cups, which secure the heel to eliminate slip and chaffing while maximizing power transfer.
EXTERNAL HEEL CUP
On select models we utilize an external heel cup for enhanced heel hold and optimal durability.
Whether it is our ultra-stiff carbon fiber DYNALAST road performance soles, rider-tuned off-road TORBAL® soles, or on and off the bike optimized city touring soles; every SHIMANO sole is designed with the specific user in mind.
