Up for review today are Mavic's Huez road shoe. These are Mavic's lightest road shoes, tipping the scales at a scant 200g per pair. Check out the full review for more info on these top-shelf climbing kicks, named for the legendary Tour de France climb, Alpe D'Huez.
Carbon fiber is used all over the shoe - even on the upper - to keep things stiff and snug while saving weight. I can't find any info about whether this bit of carbon is merely ornamental, or whether it's actually being used in a structural capacity. It certainly isn't fully-cured, as this area is still flexible.
