Choice of Champions
With the ULTIMATE, we bring cycling shoe performance to another next level
Unparalleled power transfer for all your explosive sprints and short, out of the saddle power bursts. In comparison to the EXCEED and AIR we have built in extra stiffness into the carbon fibre chassis. And we are not afraid to show it off – more exposed carbon fibre that highlights the unique handmade fabrication methods that are applied in the ULTIMATE.
THE CHOICE OF (OLYMPIC) CHAMPIONS
GREG VAN AVERMAET’S WEAPON OF CHOICE
Professionals ride over 30.000 kilometres per year hence the world tour peloton is the ultimate testing ground for high-end performance products. For the 2021 season Nimbl is the choice of over 25 world class athletes that have sought new levels of performance through their shoes. Greg van Avermaet, rider of the AG2R Citroën team is one of them. The Olympic champion is known to be demanding on his equipment and approached nimbl to see whether we could jointly develop a new benchmark for power transfer, comfort and most importantly fit. The result of this development process: the ULTIMATE.THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESSPRO-RIDER INPUT TO YOUR BENEFITGreg is a very articulate athlete capable of providing very specific, actionable input. Based on Greg’s feedback we have gone through many design iterations and numerous test samples were made to find the right fit and the optimal stiffness. During the past period, Greg van Avermaet has extensively tested and raced on the ULTIMATE. Like in the car industry, our prototypes were ‘camouflaged’ in an EXCEED uniform (the EXCEED upper was assembled) to hide the new technology beneath the surface.
