Mavic Cosmic shoes review

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Mavic Cosmic shoes provide a comfortable fit, with the close fitting upper helping to promote good power transfer through the composite sole, supporting the foot well. There’s a bit of stardust rubbed off from the brand’s premium footwear.

Mavic’s shoes are worn by the pros as well as by you and me. At £900, its top end Comete Ultimate shoes are something of an extravagance, but the new Cosmic shoes provide the brand’s tech at a more reasonable pricetag - we take a look at how it stacks up against the best cycling shoes.
