„Apart from a slick appearance sports shoes must f.i.t.. Also they must be lightweight a n d perfectly adapted to the purpose they were designed for.“ This philosophy in mind biomac started out some 18 years ago. Aero against the wind? Sure, but that’s definitely not enough. Cycling shoes must also be stiff and airy on climbs to maintain a fresh ambience within the boot even when riding under blistering hot climatic conditions.
When in 2001 we started to taylor shoes for no lesser than Paula NEWBY-FRASER, the ‚QUEEN of KONA‘ she’d become the first triathlete ever to race shoes with cleats mounted mid foot. Then, fourteen years later, in 2015 she was once again the very first to congratulate Swiss Champion Daniela RYF for the fabulous performance winning her first IRONMAN WORLDs in Kailuah Kona.
Had Daniela been limited by her feet the previous year coach Brett SUTTON recommended to go and see biomac and dedicate her ’15 season to mid foot cleats and shoes. Today Daniela is by far not the only one who caught the message about the numerous advantages of shoes with cleats mounted in mid sole/ bio-mxc² position. However, she’s still a reigning Champion giving proof to yes, mid foot cycling done the proper way is a tremendous tool when it comes to propel a racing bike!
