The Entity RS45 road bike shoe has the latest cycling footwear technology built into an attractive and classic looking shoe. Comfort is the main priority of the shoe, and are suitable for all day rides. The upper is made from perforated high quality synthetic leather, which is both breathable and will mold to the shape of the foot over time. The lace closure system also adds to the comfort with 12 points of closure, the upper will easily follow the contours of the foot without creating any pressure spots. A lace retention strap has also been added to ensure that the laces are firmly held in place whilst cycling. Lastly on the upper the understated branding is created in a reflective coating that adds additional safety whilst cycling at night.
The inner sole is made from thermoformed EVA foam, there are both perforations and air channels built in to ensure that air flows freely around the foot. The base of the shoe, the outersole is made from carbon fibre, which ensures that each pair of shoe weighs only a miniscule 450g (size 42). Each size of shoe has a completely separate carbon mold, which is an expensive but necessary task to ensure that the shoe fits perfect. There has been no cost cutting or "one size fits all" approach.
The "last" of the shoe, the shape of the shoe has generous proportions in the toe box - wider than typical European shoes yet narrower than typical over width sizes shoes - a comfortable balance. A molded footbed provides a medium level of arch support.
Finally the comfort and style of the shoe has been maintained through the use of quality padding on the tongue and heel which is covered by an antimicrobial lining. For those fashion conscious a second set of white laces have been included along with the black to ensure you can accurately match your ride.
