LoreOne teases with glimpses of its new hi-tech cycling shoes, representing the world’s first 3D-printed, monocoque carbon fiber shoe that utilizes computer scanning to fit them to the rider’s feet.
Former Olympian and well-known bike fitter Colby Pearce joined the newly created company, with the goal of rolling-out the LoreOne in April.
“The LoreOne’s multiple patent-pending breakthroughs in design, biomechanics and manufacturing reinvent what a cycling shoe is and will be,” says Pearce. “The LoreOne utilizes breakthrough scan-to-print carbon technology that is sculpted precisely to cyclists’ feet. The revolutionary carbon monocoque design will create a more direct connection between rider and bicycle than conventional shoes while producing increased watt output and pedalling efficiency.”
The Lore team comprises individuals from sport, footwear, consumer technology and aerospace. Collectively, it has led design and engineering at brands such as Apple, Tesla, Puma, DPS, Nike and Black Diamond.
“We are excited to share Lore to the world,” said CEO Stephan Drake. “We have an amazing team that is pushing the bleeding edge of technology and design. The LoreOne is not only the most exciting cycling shoe ever made, but is revolutionary across all footwear categories.
“The level of customization, performance, materials, environmental sustainability, and manufacturing technology represent a bold leap into the future.”
Details on the LoreOne such as the shoe’s closure/retention system, pedal compatibility, price etc. have yet to be released.
But, rest assured they won’t come cheap.
