The Y-line

… the first cycling shoes developed according to biomechanical principles. On the market for more than a decade, they are still the No 1 amongst competition shoes when it comes to:

- weight which is less than 150Gramms for a size 44EU of the carbon Y² or Y³ modelABS-102 #40- BLK(1)

- stability The carbon shell has a diameter of 3mm in its sole. The flexible sidewalls have less layers of carbon so they can snug around your feet. Also there’s features such as::

  • its patented cycling shoe sole (DE 100 12 900 C1) made from prepreg schale1(preimpregnated carbon). It allows its owner to
  • mount the patented bio-mxc² position (mid foot) without problems familiar to other shoes.
  • the possibility to even mount your cleats in the traditional position
  • with  four-, three- and two-hole cleats (adapter needed when mounted mid foot.                                                                                                                              Also inform yourself about topics such as:
  • custom option MIDFOOT-CLEAT-POSITON
  • even the plastic version weighs below 250grs/shoe in size 8. This version even allowsABS-103 #42-RED_001for mounting your cleats in the traditional and/or bio-mxc² section w i t h o u t an adapter!
  • climate – always an important issue. Not only does it influence the reflex zones of the entire body it also affects the cardiovascular system! This is why we believe that dyes, vapors and diluents must not be placed next to your feet. Those chemicals might cause irritation and inflammation to tendons and bones, Taylor’s bunions and arthritis. Air-conditioning as created in the Y² not draft is responsible for fresh feet and grants absence of swellings, burning 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’.

For du- and triathletes

Please read Carl D. Paton’s and Tim Jardine’s (Faculty of Health & Sport Science; New Zealand) THE EFFECTS OF CYCLING CLEAT POSITION ON SUBSEQUENT                               RUNNING PERFORMANCE DURING A SIMULATED DUATHLON“              http://www.jsc-journal.com/ojs/index.php?journal=JSC&page=article&op=view&path%5B%5D=14

…andimagine whether their findings might be helpful for your performance as well. Paton reports that they found an increase in running performance of almost 10%after a time trial executed by athletes who had their cleats mounted mid foot.
