|Zenith Road Cycling Shoe|
RBC has taken the time to listen to what road and endurance athletes want and need from their shoes.
Testing under the world best endurance and road riders, Five things immediately become obviously important when designing and refining this shoe.
To add to these critical factors our designers understood where power was being lost and how we could deliver the lost power back to the pedal with precision efficiency.
Here’s what makes the Zenith Road shoe the most powerful and comfortable shoe available.
Monocoque carbon sole
RBC’s sole construction is assembled layer by layer like no other, utilizing a Nano modified epoxy preimpregnated into high modulus Carbon Fibre for ultimate rigidity and repeatability. The carbon layers on the sole are vacuum formed under heat around the cast made of your foot, Using only a small amount of padding in the arch and the top of the heel this carbon cradle for your foot gives you unparalleled comfort. When delivering power, not having to compress padding in the forefoot gives you an instant advantage over any shoes using a post production innersole.
Orthopaedic contour control
A full Carbon arch and heel pocket allows the shoe to stabilize and cradle your feet. This gives you a major increase in comfort and power by preventing you from pronating or supernating your feet as you load up the pedal every revolution. The heel pocket also prevents your foot from leaving the base of the shoe during the upstroke.
Every RBC upper is constructed using only the most advanced materials.
All internal padding in RBC shoes is a closed cell surgical padding that carries a 99% lifetime memory rebound. This padding is firm and very hard to fully compress which makes it a perfect match to use as the interface between your foot and the carbon cradle. The padding is used sparingly used in every shoe as the orthopaedic shape of the shoe is ultra comfortable alone. We only use padding as a safety measure where there is a possibility of an irritation of a bone or previous injury
For closure on a road or endurance shoe all of us at RBC believe that you can not go past the nylon webbing reinforced Velcro straps for reliability and ease of use. You also have the choices of buckles, laces and pull toggle laces as well.
Combining the closures with the non stretch Kevlar sandwiched between the layers, means that when you pull up on the pedal it is instant power delivery. No having to preload and stretch the upper by curling your toes or tensing your foot. Simply said using RBC Shoes your feet will not move up or down due to the shoe stretching. This gives you a double gain not only gaining power by removing the stretch in the upper but also keeping your foot in constant contact with the sole of the shoe no matter how hard you pull up on the pedal.
