The Minaki Mid CPX winter MTB shoe features the newly developed Ceplex Green membrane from VAUDE. VAUDE’s own Ceplex membrane is made of PU material and, unlike many commercial membranes, is free from environmentally harmful fluorocarbons. In the development of the new Ceplex GREEN membrane, VAUDE has gone a step further and replaced a portion of the originally pure petroleum-based material with recycled raw materials. The functional properties remain the same, as the membrane effectively blocks out moisture and wind while riding, and ensures high breathability.
This mid-high bike shoe is not only waterproof and windproof, it is also warmly insulated to provide excellent heat retention that keeps feet warm up to the ankles in cold weather. The insole is insulated on the bottom to ensure best fit and wearing comfort. Equipped with the Boa® closure system, it is easy to secure and lets you slip the shoe on and off easily. This rotary closure system also allows for quick re-adjustment when wearing gloves. Above the laces is a flap with a water-repellent zip to protect against dirt and splashes. A wide Velcro closure on the ankle provides additional protection and support. Reflective elements mounted on the back of the shoe enhance rider visibility even in low light conditions. A grippy profile sole is compatible with common MTB clipless pedals and offers the right mix of stiffness for effective pedal power transfer, and excellent grip and running comfort - even in winter conditions. The cleat for the clipless pedal system is covered, which makes the shoe also suitable for use on platform pedals, ideal for bike commuters, for example. The cover can be removed when using clipless pedals.
