Cycling Weekly Verdict

Udog is a newcomer to the market, but its Cima shoes are every bit as capable as offerings from mainstream brands. The sole is stiff and offers excellent power transfer, and the knit upper allows for freedom of movement with the laces enabling you to get the fit just right. Our shoes did come in heavier than the claim however.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Competitive on weight vs price

  • +

    More comfortable than traditional uppers

  • +

    Stiff sole competes with the best

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Moulding over the toes isn't aesthetically pleasing

  • -

    A fair bit heavier than the claim

Udog's Cima cycling shoes are the latest offering from the Italian direct to consumer brand. These are performance orientated shoes, made from a one-piece seamless knit material on the upper with a carbon fibre sole.

Cima translates to ‘summit’ or ‘mountain-top’, and with a claimed weight at 240g in a size 42 (ours came in at 283g for a size 44), these are targeted at those seeking low weight. Coming in at £220/$300 they align themselves directly alongside some big names like, Bont, Sidi, Fizik and Rapha’s Pro Team shoes.
