Shimano Custom Fit Shoes
Every foot is different, and standardised shoe sizes can often leave gaps and uneven contact points between your foot and the shoe. These gaps lead to movement, inefficiency and abrasion over time. The Shimano Custom Fit system eliminates spaces and irregular contact, giving you a compliant, glove-like fit with improved support, power transfer, endurance and a reduced chance of injury – essential for the high mileage competitive cyclist. The custom fit process takes 3 steps:

  • Heat: Heat sensitive material is infused in the shoe upper, the shoe is heated in a special oven.
  • Vacuum Form: While Heated the shoe worn, wrapped and sealed in a vacuum device that withdraws the air. The shoe instantly conforms to the foot.
  • Cool: The upper is left to cool and perfectly retains the shape of your foot for a glove like fit.

The upper is constructed from supple synthetic leather with perforations for ventilation, Mesh inserts provide further breathability and cooling airflow for comfort in hot conditions.

The R241 features an easy to use, secure fitting micro-adjusting buckle strap, backed up by two cuttable Velcro-style hook-and-loop closure straps strategically positioned to assure snug comfortable fit without causing pressure points.

Carbon Composite Sole
The Lightweight and rigid hollow carbon fibre composite sole ensures efficient power transfer to the pedals with no loss of energy due to flex. Ventilation holes allow air to circulate through the shoe for lasting freshness and evaporation.

Great looking shoe - looks even better in real life! Your shoes come under a lot of pressure both pushing down, and pulling up in the pedal stroke, and as such you need a good quality pair that will keep on performing. Carbon sole creates a shoe that is not only lightweight, but extremely stiff providing greater power transfer. Offset straps wrap the foot, and hold it in the most effective position. 'Custom fit' mouldable upper provides tailored fit and improved comfort. Available to order in wide fit.
