The lightweight Mavic Crossmax are perfect cross-country mountain bike shoes for beginners!
The Energy Grip Terra outsole is made of glass fibre reinforced nylon. The aggressive Contragrip rubber and two holes for additional cleats complete the sole. Thus, the entire sole is great combination of stiffness, traction and a smooth foot roll so that you can carry your bike over muddy and rocky terrain safely.
The sole is compatible with all standard MTB cleats with a 2-hole system.
The upper is equipped with large mesh panels for better ventilation and to allow moisture to escape more quickly to the outside. The Ortholite foam insole is not only highly breathable but also antibacterial and environmentally friendly. Plus, it is washable!
For the necessary strength whilst pedalling, it is of upmost importance for your foot to be secure. Thus, the Crossmax features wrap-around heel cups to keep your heel secure and foot in line. The shoe itself can be closed using the one-pull Quick Lace system with high-strength Kevlar aramid fibres. This allows you to adjust the shoe whilst youre on the go. The lacing system allows for an even distribution of pressure on your foot, thereby preventing pressure points.
