Mavic Fury Shoes pedal on through hell like the lone cyclist of the apocalypse. The shoes combine a sock-like upper with a stiffer-than-a-board sole to give comfort and provide power. Those two features alone have made them players, and the success of Fury-shod racers like Julien Absalon, Georgia Gould, Katerina Nash, and Tim Johnson demonstrate what the shoes can do when supporting world-class athletes. But it wasn't enough: Mavic knew they could do better.

The shoe, while it looks largely the same, has undergone several improvements, refinements really, all of which come from putting the shoes to brutal real-world testing. The most obvious change is the upper material. Mavic wanted a material that was both more stretch-resistant and cleaned up easier, so they switched from the sock-like matte finish to a glossy micro fiber. While they wanted to keep the upper soft, they also wanted to give it a bit more shape, so they built in a thermo polyurethane (TPU) frame they call the Energy Frame Plus to give a greater feeling of the foot being locked in place and to make the pulling portion of your pedal stroke more effective. You'll see this wrapping the shoe from the arch on the inside to the ratchet on the outside.

The ratchet buckle and strap have changed as well. They made the buckle larger, so it's easier to get large or gloved fingers underneath and grasp. The strap has deeper valleys between the teeth for better, more confident grip. The Ergo Strap Carbon runs through integrated, two-position nylon lace guides for both better fit and smoother action. The Energy Lock Carbon heel remains the same, as does the integrated, wrap-around Ergo Tongue.

Mavic have also upgraded the insole. They call it Ergo Fit 3D. It means two things. One is that the insole is three-dimensional, rather than two, but also that there are three different density materials giving some cushion on the top layer, a crushable bottom layer, and shaping from the heel cup through the arch.

The bottom of the shoe has been tweaked a bit, too. The carbon outer layer is now unidirectional rather than carbon-weave. They still employ the Contagrip rubber, but have replaced the toe spike screws with short studs that sit flush with the rest of the sole and add a little toe grip in dry conditions.

The Mavic Fury Shoes are packaged with mud spikes, a tool, metal shims for cleat adjustment and sole protection. There is also a carry bag. The shoes come in both whole and half sizes from 5 to 12.5. Claimed weight is 335g for a size 8.5.

Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've put over 5,000 miles, mostly in the dirt, in three years on these shoes: I think I'll probably get at least one more out of them. When these shoes are totally toasted I will definitely replace them with another pair of Mavics.

I seem to think I have fat American feet -- these fit me really well, especially compared to Sidi.

I am pretty bummed that they no longer offer the gray color, though. I don't like the black and I ain't fast enough for the yellow.

Fit like Sidi, but with higher arch

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I always wanted to fit into sidi shoes, and aside from the arch support, they fit me almost perfectly. Then I stumbled upon these, and the fit width wise and in the toe box is identical to the sidi, but the insole that they come with has a higher arch support, which I like.

The shoe seems to be more suited for someone with a low volume foot. I've used mine for 2 seasons, varying from light XC riding all the way to heavy duty lift access riding at Deer Valley here in Utah. They've held up great, with no rips, tears, or separation of panels. The carbon sole is still holding strong, even after many near bail outs with me scrambling to clip back into my pedals.

The sole is STIFF. When I say stiff, I mean it. I wouldn't recommend this shoe for someone who does a lot of cyclocross or does a lot of hike a bike sections, as I found my heel was coming up a bit because the sole was so stiff.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this shoe to any mountain biker who spends more time on the bike than running with it/carrying it.

Are this shoes compatible with Shimano pedals?

Responded on

Yes these will work with any 2-hole cleat/pedal including SPD pedals from Shimano.

Great for Cyclocross

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

These shoes are stiff and light for MTB shoes. I'm a size 11 and got the 11.5, they fit perfect. I don't have a Sidi foot so these are a great alternative. I recently broke one of the velcro enclosures, trying to tighten the shoe while I was riding. I'll probably buy another pair soon.

awesome!

Love these shoes -- super light, breath really well and less $ than many other comparable shoes. Highly recommended if you want light, high-end great shoes at a good price.

Agreed size up

Steve is spot on... the toe has lower volume so size up 1/2 size if you want a roomier fit. I ordered the same size as my Mavic road shoes, but I'm thinking they will stretch out after a few rides. Weight was 381g on size 9.5. Less rubber = less weight. MTB shoes can be light too.

Size-up

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I tried both my regular size and 1/2 size up. The toe is pretty narrow and pointy, so I ended up going one size up. I've put in two multi-hour rides in these shoes - still fiddling with the straps to get them comfortable, but overall pretty happy. They seem lighter than my old Sidis but are also a little more fiddly to get the adjustment right. As for the "Ergo Fit 3D insole" - tried it once, and went back to some heat molded insoles I used in my old shoes - the insole that comes stock is pretty flimsy, much the same as other shoes,.
