Creating Pedaling Efficiency
Optimized Shoe Last
The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedaling. Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles. Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form. Extensive research by Shimano's R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design with an optimized toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke. Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides, letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.
Tension in plantar area affects leg muscles
A wider range of motion supports a smoother, more efficient upstroke.
Smoother pedaling more efficient power transfer
Tension affects the moving angle
