Mavic Comete Ultimate shoes – a quick look

Mavic Comete Ultimate shoes – a quick look

Cycling shoes have evolved rapidly in recent years and Mavic has taken things to the next level with the release of the Comete Ultimate. We take a quick look at a $1,600 pair of cycling shoes.

There are innovations and styling that are difficult to ignore. Never mind the price tag for a moment – if you can – and just consider what Mavic is doing with its Comete Ultimate shoes. It’s an entire rethink even if it borrows a little from the Adam Hansen school of thought: if carbon-fibre helps makes shoes lighter and stiffer, then why not use more of it and eliminate the flexible, heavier materials?

It’s not immediately apparent (one of the reasons for two clips in our video review) but the shoe effectively comes in two parts: a carbon-fibre outer and soft inner bootie.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a closer look at several cycling products including another pair of shoes from Mavic – with a much more reasonable pricing structure (ie. $300, rather than the $1,600 for the Comete Ultimates) – as well as other items from the French brand.

This coincides with the final weeks of a promotion that Mavic’s Australian agent, Groupe Sportif, is running in the lead-up to the 2018 Tour de France.

If you buy a wheelset or a pair of shoes by Mavic, you immediately go in the draw to win a trip to France in July.

  • Visit the Mavic factory in Annecy.
  • And attend the final stage of the Tour de France as a guest of Mavic… complete with a lap or two of the finishing circuit on the famous Champs-Elysées inside the Mavic neutral spares vehicle!

It’s a fantastic opportunity to get some quality cycling product and put yourself in with a chance to win a trip that will let you see racing in a way you’ve never done before!

  • Hey guys. Stuey here! I’m back on the @ridecyclingmedia IG following an action packed, Classics mad week with @mummucycling . From Flanders, we hit the Ardennes to tackle the trio of Classics there, finishing off superbly by riding the @amstelgoldrace finale today. A treat to have smooth roads and sunshine on our backs, following a cobble-crazy week.
We also had the pleasure of catching up with this legend ☝️ @eddymerckx525 which was an honour for us all and a very cool experience for our guests. 👑🙌🏻
The fun and games continue this weekend as we head to my favourite...the Queen of the Classics @parisroubaixcourse for a bit of fun in hell 😜.
Tomorrow our crew will tackle the Paris-Roubaix challenge which will be an awesome opportunity to ride some of the races famous sectors and see just how brutal the pavé can be. We’ll then be kicking back Sunday to enjoy all the action and conclude our trip on a high. It’s been real and can’t wait to round it off with the big one this weekend!
I’ll be sharing our progress and some live action on the IG story here, so be sure to tune in!
  • Rubbing shoulders with the locals. Always amusing. @rondevanvlaanderenofficial
