DMT Introduces the First Ever Magnesium Sole Cycling Shoe - Mag Force
SEPTEMBER 15, 2006
DMT Shoes of Verona, Italy has raised the bar yet again in state-of-the-art cycling shoe technology with the announcement of the Mag Force, the first ever cycling shoe with a sole made entirely of magnesium. The new, top-of-the-line model promises greater sole stiffness, lighter weight, and improved comfort and support.
DMT is the first manufacturer to produce and patent magnesium sole technology. The properties of magnesium offer several distinct advantages over most carbon and composite sole technologies commonly available on the market today:
The Mag Force magnesium sole will be matched with the proven SL+SF (Seamless SockFit) Concept Last featuring a one-piece, micro fiber upper eliminating internal stitching and material overlap for a 'slipper-like' fit. The 2X Density Energy Strap Control System integrates a single-piece heel cup and top strap for maximum stability and closure support. The Mag Force will also include a New Insole offering increased protection in the arch and footbed zones.
- Greater Sole Stiffness: 10% greater stiffness and structural integrity
- Lighter Weight: 5% less than the DMT Flash
- Greater Heat Dissipation: reducing the chances of hot spots found in carbon sole shoes
- Reduced Stack Height: 2mm less than DMT SLHC carbon sole
- Embedded Threading: eliminates cleat receptacles, further reducing weight
- Replaceable Toe and Heel Pads: extending the life of the shoe
The new magnesium sole will also be offered in a three-strap version called the Mag Light which will feature the same characteristics as the Mag Force but in a three-strap, Fit Powered Closure System and lighter weight (227 grams, size 41).
The entire 2007 DMT Collection will be shown at Interbike, September 27-29, Booth 2851. For more information, please contact Upland Sports Group at 510-903-0130, www.uplandsg.com.
