DMT Prisma Shoes

3.5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $349.95


Product Description

The DMT Prisma Shoe features nine layers of 40Ton High Modulus Carbon Fiber making the CX Carbon sole light as hell and stiffer than a two-by-four nailed to the bottom of your foot. Soft and secure frontal 2X-Density Control straps prevent feet from shifting or lifting, and the receptacle heel and toe studs make comfort and grip a reality. You may wind up handing the DMT Prismas down to your children someday.

Strengths:    Fit, stiffness, comfort, Speedplay pattern means no adapter! Got mine on sale, so good value.

Weaknesses:    Dang buckles - lost a star because of this alone.

Bottom Line:   
I usually use a 45 in Specialized, and that's what I ordered and they fit fine. They run a tad wide, which I need since I have a wider foot. Tried on 45.5 and a 44.5 and they were too large and too small, respectively. The 44.5 seem much narrower on my foot while the 45.5 was just too long. The ratcheting system on the 2011 model was fragile, but the new ones are supposed to be much better. My left buckle was actually broke when I received it, but will be getting new ones. The soles are stiff and the shoe is very comfortable. This shoe would be perfect is it wasn't for the buckle, which in all fairness has been redesigned for 2012 I have heard.

Strengths:    fit, looks, speedplay sole

Weaknesses:    RAM

Bottom Line:   
Great shoes, until the RAM on the left shoe stopped ratcheting. When they work, their great; cable tightens the entire front of shoe rather then just the top as with many other road shoes. I take a 34 shoe, so I ordered a 34.5 and the fit was perfect. Used these shoes with speed play cleats for about two weeks and loved every minute, then the left RAM stopped working and I was SOL. They say that the RAM and cable is replaceable. OK, I believe it but good luck finding a replacement part in the USA. I’m returning the shoes for a pair without the RAM system (cheap plastic housing with plastic gears). Shoes get a 5 star rating, RAM system gets a 1 star.

DMT Prisma/Speedplay shoes

I just picked up a pair of these, and they're a bit lacking in instructions, and the DMT web site wasn't much help. Any idea what the cryptogram on the insole is indicating? And thinking about these more, seems like since the spring tension screws are used to mount the cleat to the shoe, they're b ... Read More »

New bike - BH Prisma

I'm not necessarily a beginner. Use to road ride some 20+yrs ago. I've been a MTB'er for a long time. Last year I decided to get back into road riding to supplement my MTB'ing. Last year I picked up a used '05 Trek 1200 to see if I'd enjoy road'ing again. Well after 1 summer, I got rid of the ... Read More »
