(Yes, each shoe is meticulously made by hand. )
Vittoria VELAR is revered as an aesthetically and technically exceptional road cycling shoe.
In fact, it is the winner for Design and innovations award in 2018. This award is the benchmark achievement for all things bicycle - from bike-shoes to bike parts and accessories. Products that win it are considered the best of the best.
1. Ergonomic Fitting Concept (EFC 2.0)
Comprising the latest in high-tech materials, the VELAR features what Vittoria calls its EFC 2.0 closure system, which utilizes a pair of BOA IP1 dials to uniformly wrap the shoe around the rider’s foot by evenly distributing the tightening force across the entire upper.
2. Forged Carbon Technology (FCT)
FCT is a leading-edge process that creates a carbon composite that is 2/3 less dense than metal titanium, but much stronger.
The VELAR incorporates the FCT process into it's sole, which is claimed to reduce weight by 25% when compared to a traditional carbon sole, making the shoe one of the lightest on the market.
3. Air System Concept
The Air System Concept is adopted at the sole through laser micro drilling, to create ventilation channels thereby allowing airflow to be routed where it’s needed to maintain the body temperature at optimal levels during each ride.
4. Soft Touch Technology
The surface of the shoe is made with High Stiffness STT (Soft Touch Technology) Microfiber, which is characterized by being wear resistant, stable, lightweight, waterproof and eco-compatible.
It is subjected to hydro treatment, thereby reducing water absorption and features a strong anti-mold characteristic. It is micro-perforated and cut by Laser nano technology for optimal cooling effect.
5. Performance Insole
To increase performance in races, and improve endurance in training, the Velar’s Performance Insole comes with a thermo-formable insert.
Thanks to this solution, it is possible to customize the fit to your feet’s arch and achieve a more natural and comfortable support. Increasing the stability means there’s reduced internal movement and the risk of skin irritation.
