Adidas adiStar Ultra review

This range-heading model uses an ultra-thin carbon sole that bring the foot closer to the pedal axis and thus requires correspondingly short cleat screws. The screws supplied were a little long, though the distributor says they have now rectified this.

Good summer performance, but try before you buy.

The reflective ClimaCool composite mesh reinforced with Polyester/Polyamid has great breath ability, making this one of the most comfortable shoes to wear in hot conditions. The Fast Strap ratcheting closure system works well and there are no hot spots around the edges to cause irritation. We also found that the stated size of the Ultra is on the large side and the toe box is a little lower than average, so try before you buy.
