Whether you're tackling an XC race or grinding out an all-day trail epic, Amp gives you the comfort and efficiency to up your off-road game. With its innovative Motion Efficiency System and high-quality, lightweight materials, you can conquer the trails like never before.
The Motion Efficiency System combines a stiff and efficient pedaling platform with just enough torsional flex to reduce pressure and strain in the lower leg. The result is a more natural foot movement during the pedal stroke, which improves both comfort and power transfer to optimize efficiency. The ExoBeam and ExoWrap technologies work together as a system, and ExoFlex provides further benefits for off-road riding.
ExoBeam is a unique sole technology that combines stiffness in the forefoot, where most of a riders power is applied, with strategically engineered flex zones that reduce tension and strain in the lower leg by allowing the foot to move in a more natural way. While most performance cycling shoes rely on ultra-stiff plate soles, ExoBeam puts the stiffness where it needs to be and allows just enough flex in other areas of the shoe. Without the traditional plate sole, the foot can be fully wrapped in the enclosure system, resulting in increased power transfer, a more precise fit and improved comfort for overall efficiency
ExoWrap works in harmony with the ExoBeam to produce a unique 360-degree foot enclosure for customizable fit and support. While most shoe enclosures simply pull the foot down toward the sole, ExoWrap fully supports the foot by also pulling up. This optimizes the fit benefits of BOA and buckle enclosure systems and improves power transfer, comfort and overall efficiency, without special insoles or heel cup designs.
ExoFlex is a unique technology that allows the toe area of the shoe to move independently of the main ExoBeam sole. This results in superior traction off the bike (pushing or running uphill), plus enhanced overall foot comfort. Ideal for cyclocross or XC racing, ExoFlex optimizes the natural flex of the toes and also reduces heel slip at the back of the shoe.
