Cycling shoe uppers, made of leather and synthetics like microfiber, have four main functions: Ventilation, protection, comfort and responsiveness.
Well ventilated shoes for road and trails are highly recommended in hot conditions to avoid sole burn and overheating feet. Microfiber and mesh uppers with vents for extra air flow reduce sweating and increase comfort. In winter, protection from the elements is needed. SCOTT cycling shoes with Gore-Tex membranes keep mud, dirt and water away from the inside and provide warmth. Another way to keep you warm and dry are shoe and toe covers in different lengths and heights.
SCOTT’s latest innovation in footwear upper material is Carbitex, made from carbon and designed for the day when anything else but the win wouldn’t be good enough. SCOTT’s Carbitex cycling shoe range allows for ultimate responsiveness and ultimate power transfer, with virtually zero elongation. Although stiff, Carbitex is exceptionally flexible and enables a glove like fit.
