Mavic has introduced the latest version of its ultra-expensive Comete Ultimate road shoe in a less expensive model called the Comete Ultimate II, slashing the price from a staggering $1000 to a still hefty sum of $770.
Yet, despite the considerable drop in price, Mavic claims its latest version still maintains the same modular two-piece construction, but with an updated carbon shell and inner boot for increased performance.
“Updated to offer a more precise, comfortable fit than the original groundbreaking Comete Ultimate, this is a full-on pro-level race shoe that gives you maximum power transfer and an incredibly close connection to your bike. The Comete Ultimate unique modular construction is revolutionary in every sense of the word. The shoe is constructed from two main components: a carbon shell and a separate one-piece internal bootie that’s now updated with Matryx technology straps that feature carbon yarns woven into them for added stability and reduced weight,” says Mavic.
Additionally, the Comete Ultimate II gets a revised carbon exoskeleton that Mavic calls its Energy Shell, along with reshaped ventilation openings. But, perhaps the biggest update is the new inner boot, which uses a softer fabric that’s strategically placed for improved fit and adaptability to the foot, as well as updated softer straps using patented Matryx technology that utilizes carbon yarn for better support and breathability.
The Comete Ultimate II also retains the same low-profile, vented carbon sole and replaceable toe, heel and outer scuff bumpers, while fitment is handled by two Mavic Ergo Dial II adjustable retention dials.
According to Mavic, the Comete Ultimate II is now offered in a wider range of sizes and half-sizes (6.5 to 12), with a cold weather liner soon to be available as well.
