From towering alpine peaks to punishing pavé. Endless climbs, all-out attacks, the sprint to the finish when it’s all on the line. We built the next-generation Cosmic Ultimate to excel in every aspect of road racing. This is high-performance, pro-level footwear with no limitations and zero compromise. To meet the demands of top WorldTour pro racers, we targeted three key performance factors for the Cosmic Ultimate: maximum power transfer, foot support, and adjustability. Test riders told us that many shoes excel in one or two of those areas, but they wanted one shoe that does it all. We started with our cutting-edge Matryx material, patented technology in the upper that features a Kevlar woven polyamide. This lightweight foot-mapping material offers supreme foot stability and support with minimal lateral movement. Combined with a stiff full carbon outsole and a low 6.5mm stack height, the result is an efficient pedal stroke that transfers every ounce of your energy with zero wasted watts. The Matryx upper has an overlap construction with a 3D tongue design, producing a close, comfortable fit for all foot shapes and sizes. And two BOA® Fit System IP1 dials provide two-way micro adjustment for a precision fit that keeps your feet comfortable on the longest, toughest rides. A low-profile collar around the ankle offers maximum range of motion, and the integrated heel cup with pre-shaped foam keeps the back of your foot firmly in place. Inspired by the hardmen of road cycling, the Cosmic Ultimate is a true all-rounder. It will help get you through your longest, hardest training days, and give you a winning edge when you need it most.
