The idea of the UNIQUE Shoes™ was born in the heart of the Dolomites, developed by a network of specialists in the sports shoe field. Q36.5 worked with the most experienced Italian pattern makers and renowned partners like BOA to design a truly unique cycling shoe that compliments Q36.5’s image and our extreme vision of cycling.
The upper, is a new one-piece construction without the common shoe tongue. It fits your foot like a sock and is created by using a single piece of natural microfiber. This resilient proprietary fabric is highly breathable and works like a ventilator for the middle part of the foot.
POWER WRAP SUPPORT
Inside the upper we have devised a support system to maximize the power transfer to the pedal by wrapping the instep: the Power Wrap Support surrounds the instep and holds the foot in place, providing ergogenic aid during the pedal stroke and insuring zero wattage waste.
Q36.5 Last is a modern vision of a cycling shoe last; the heel, the waist girth and the instep are very snug and precisely contour the feet, the toe box is comfortable and better follows the dynamic of the foot during the pedal strokes.
The UNIQUE footbed, compared not only to standard cycling
footbeds but also to made-to-measure orthotics, ensures 10% less pressure on the insole, when calculated on the highest peak of pressure.
The outsole, designed as a vertebral column, presents an absolutely rigid cleat area and a minimally flexible rear area: the rebound effect results in greater comfort, increased blood flow in venous return, less tendon and muscle overload.
