The Y-line

… the first cycling shoes developed according to biomechanical principles. Although often copied they have never been accomplished.  On the market for more than a decade, they are still the No 1 amongst competition shoes. The Y-line  impresses not only with very low weight and almost indestructible stability when used responsibly but also with a number of sometimes even patented features like:

  • MIDFOOT-CLEAT-POSITONits cycling shoe sole (DE 100 12 900 C1) made from prepreg (preimpregnated carbon) which allows its owner to
  • mount the patented bio-mxc² position without problems familiar to other brands’ shoes.
  • the possibility to even mount the traditional position with  four-, three- and two-hole cleats (adapter needed)

Check the News-section to trace down even world-class athletes and inform yourself about advantages such as:

  • shoe weight which is below 150grs/shoe in size 10. Compare this with other brands and please, don’t pretend that shoe-weight doesn’t matter or if so, just carry an extra bottle uphill, go for a run with your mobile in one fist or mount your 36-spokes wheel set for the next race…
  • climate – always an important issue. Not only does it influence the reflex zones of your body it also influences the entire cardiovascular system! This is why we believe that dyes, vapors and diluents must not be placed next to your feet. Otherwise they might cause irritation and inflammation to tendons and bones, Tailor’s bunions and arthritis. Note, air-conditioning as created in the Y² not draft is responsible for fresh feet and grants absence of swellings and sweating.
  • fit is indispensable. In order to perform well. An athlete’s feet have to feel comfy. Send us your measures and we’ll do our best to get you suitable ‘Maccies’.

…and imagine whether their finding couldn’t be helpful for your performance as well. They report that they found an increase of almost 10% in running performance after a time trial with athletes who had their cleats mounted mid foot.
