Nobody wants to hear it, but there's a limit to the power you can put out in a day. You can't avoid hitting that threshold when you're going all out, but you can move it back by wearing light, aerodynamic gear like the Mavic CXR Ultimate Men's Cycling Shoes. Their sleek construction reduces air resistance, and while that won't increase your watt output, it will make you more efficient so you'll get to the finish with more left in the tank.
The CXR Ultimate weighs 70g more than the Huez, Mavic's lightest shoe, but is far more slippery, thanks to the CXR Aero zip-up cover that provides a slick, smooth surface for the air to flow over. Underneath, an Ergo Dial ratcheting strap provides a snug, pinch-free fit and the Ergo 3D tongue creates maximum foot hold while maintaining comfort and breathability. The Energy Lock Carbon Comp heel counter keeps your heel from slipping, too, and the Ergo Fit 3D+ Ortholite footbed provides heel and arch support, not to mention superior power transfer into the sole.
A too-soft sole will compromise your power output, while an incredibly stiff one will hurt your feet and make walking nearly impossible. Mavic's Energy Full Carbon SLR outsole is a powerful platform that won't flex too much under serious force, but also doesn't feel like an iron plate. It 's just 5.5mm thick, so you'll have a great feel for your pedals, and is compatible with all standard 3-hole road cleats. The soles also offer up to 6mm of fore/aft cleat adjustment, so you can fine tune your setup to your preferences.

This is an excellent road shoe. The Dial closures adjust the fit very precisely. The shoe is very stiff. Compared to similar shoes, they are light. The padding is just about perfect thus this stiff shoe is also comfortable.
The zipper aero cover is unique. While I can not attest to an aero benefit absent a wind tunnel test, it does smooth the part of the shoe that sees the most wind. The cover also firms up the top closure of the shoe making the fit more consistent. Additionally, it covers the Dial closures so they do not catch on warmers or rain covers. The Dial closures and the zipper cover have seen a lot of use and have been durable and reliable.
Mavic yellow is high visibility, a benefit on crowded streets.
is that UK or EU size?
It's in (inches), American. I doubt an American Company deal with UK or EU sizes. Most Customers are in the USA. I would Call and check just to make sure.
Could anyone explain briefly about ergo technology. . ?
