DMT Vega Cycling Shoes 2015 Review

Look closely at the feet of Philippe Gilbert and you’ll see the 2012 world road race champion wearing Italian firm DMT‘s flagship shoe, the Vega. A carbon fibre sole is de rigueur for a performance shoe in the modern age but DMT have gone one step further and claim the neatly-moulded base of the DMT Vega is made from an aerospace-grade composite.

The upper is made from two fabrics called ‘Micro1’ and ‘Micro Air Cell’ by DMT. ‘Micro 1’ is a microfibre material which is just 1mm-thick, keeping the weight low and comfort high slip the Vega on and you’ll barely notice it’s there. Meanwhile, ‘Micro Air Cell’ is a nylon mesh with a honeycomb structure to allow for maximum ventilation in the heat of a race.

As with many high-end racing shoes, the Vega fastens with a double BOA mechanism, with the two dials offering finite adjustment, and the thin tongue is fixed in place by a small patch of Velcro. If they’re good enough for Fast Phil, they’re good enough for us.
