DMT Kyoma Carbon Shoes

DESCRIPTION

DMT’s aim in this design was to improve performance during cycling. This model is fitted with a SLHC “Supra Light Hardened Carbon” sole, with fixed thickness from the heel to the toe, and made in composite fibers to enhance the adherence between the foot and pedal. Another outstanding feature of this model lies in the uppers, which are made in resistant and light micro-fiber without seams or overlapping. DMT’s aim was to offer a snug fitting shoe that wraps around the foot like a sock.

Strength:

great looks, incredible light weight, and breezy ventilation

Weakness:

short tongue can be uncomfortable, no texture around cleat area, and pricey relative to other products

The uppers of the shoes are a unique material that has a shiny, plastic appearance. Despite the synthetic look one of the most notable features is the incredible ventilation; they are very cool in the summer. Moreover, they are fairly stiff when new, but do break in over a few weeks to become increasingly comfortable. The soles are not the stiffest I've seen, but are quite stiff. The soles are also quite thin compared to other popular carbon sole shoes. The biggest problem with the soles is a lack of texture around the cleat area. Because the sole is so smooth cleats will want to slip. My shoes came with some adhesive sandpaper; use it. The closure system works well, but the top strap can cut into the tendons on the top foot due to a very short tongue. It's not always a problem, but it can be very uncomfortable depending on how the shoe fits your foot. Overall the shoes are very nice. The material maintains its color and cleans nicely. The soles are thin and sufficiently stiff.

Strength:

very light and strong. the carbon sole really has a good feel when pedaling fast.

Weakness:

none so far

when I saw these shoes at the store I knew they were for me. I have very wide feet and these fit perfectly. After about 1000 miles they are still like brand new. I bought the white color also. They are easy to take care of, just a wipe down after every ride.
