Originally developed for Lance Armstrong's demolition of all opposition in the Tour de France's Alpe d'Huez time trial in 2004, the Poggio shoe has been revamped for 2007 and comes back lighter and more potent than ever.
Claimed as the lightest shoe on the market, the V-spine full-length carbon fibre outsole has been remodeled to improve power transfer and greater comfort through the introduction of a new venting system. The patent black leather upper would certainly look good on the dancefloor, and is guaranteed to turn heads on the bike. The Poggio is three-hole cleat compatible and comes in chrome, black and blue sapphire colour options.
