Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole®
NEW Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole® is engineered for high-performance, high-mileage cyclists, with stiffness for power transfer and some controlled flex in the toe area that biomechanically relieves stress in the plantar tendon. It’s ideal for triathlon, as it helps promote circulation and isn’t as punishing on the foot, leaving you more for the run.
The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole® is extremely stiff. In SIDI’s rigidity test, in which a 50 kg (110 lb) weight is suspended from one end of the sole, it deflected only 2.4 mm—20% stiffer than the previous Carbon Composite sole’s 3 mm deflection. The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole® is constructed from layered 3k weave carbon fiber and injected carbon fiber in a matrix of Nylon 12, a mechanically stable material that is completely non-absorbent to water, so it won’t change rigidity from exposure to heat, humidity or from aging. It is an exceptionally light, stiff, durable sole. An anti-slip insert in the toe and replaceable polyurethane heel pad help you navigate through transitions.
The Eleven Carbon Composite Sole® uses a standard 3-hole drilling pattern for compatibility with the best pedal systems available, and includes a printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale on the sole as well as the Look Memory Eyelet® for easy cleat alignment and replacement.
