Product description

Most of us are used to the idea of pros using custom frame builders and then sticking the bike sponsor's name on the down tube. Who really thought Jan Ullrich was time trialling on a Giant? And we all loved 7-Eleven's non-Huffy Huffys in the '80s. Gerolsteiner and T-Mobile maybe single-handedly kept Andy Walser living large for the last decade. But it may occur to us less often that when a rider has on a pair of Diadoras, those aren't really Diadoras. Though the brand DMT is a relative newcomer to being visible in the pro peloton, the company has decades of experience manufacturing custom made shoes for some of the top names in the sport. Having long acted as a custom shoe maker means that DMT has an enormous backlog of shoe lasts. This historical data has allowed the designers to incorporate a huge catalogue of foot quirks into their stock shoes. Enter the DMT Radial -- the top of the line DMT model for riders who eschew mechanical buckles. The Radial 's CX carbon sole is made from Toray MR60, which is a 40 Ton High Modulus Carbon Fiber. That means it has a tensile strength of 40 tons per square cm. In other words, it's got stiffness in spades. Toray is one of the top manufacturers of carbon fiber world-wide -- it's the same stuff used by Pinarello in the Prince Carbon and Montello FP8. The lay-up of the carbon and the shape of the sole are exclusive to DMT. The soles are made from 9 layers of carbon fiber woven at 0AA, 45AA and 90AA angles. Of course the sole must be looked at as a whole, but each angle in the carbon lay-up will offer strength in different ways. The layers from the inside out are as follows: 0, 45, 45, 90, 0, 45, 0, 0, 45, UD Woven Exterior. Each degree provides different features:0AA: Maximum stiffness and responsiveness. This carbon fiber runs the length of the sole providing the stiffness overall for the entire sole. 45AA: Torsional rigidity allowing an responsive and firm steering feel.
