Mavic CXR Ultimate aero road shoes – first look

Mavic launches new aero road cycling shoes for 2015

Mavic’s CXR Ultimate range is a new-for-2015 collection of aero gear, including jersey, bibs, gloves and helmet. First up, we’ve got the Mavic CXR Ultimate cycling shoes.


Coming in at £300 (US$399.95, Australian pricing to follow), Mavic bills the CXR Ultimate shoes as saving watts without reducing comfort thanks to the shoes’ aeroflap – a zipped fabric layer that seamlessly integrates with the bonded upper, hiding the Ergo Dial ratcheted retention system from the wind. Mavic also claims the Ultimates are highly ventilated and suitable for everyday riding.


The shoes use Mavic’s extremely stiff Energy Full Carbon SLR outsole and are compatible with three-bolt clear systems. Check out the gallery above for a close-up look.
