Mavic designed the Ksyrium Men's Ultimate II Shoes with long-mile cyclists in mind. The Ksyrium Ultimate is built with a comfortable upper and a stiff, full-carbon sole to efficiently weather gran fondos, epic double centuries in the high mountains, and any other endurance road excursion you might imagine.
Mavic incorporates perforations and strategic mesh paneling in the Ksyrium Ultimate's upper, which offers some much appreciated ventilation and breathability to keep feet cool through long summer rides. An Endofit tongue provides a comfortable, glove like fit while evenly distributing pressure across the top of your foot. An Ergo Dial Boa strap wraps across the top of the foot, while two Ergo hook-and-loop straps span the midfoot and forefoot to dial in a customized fit that's easily adjustable on the fly.

- Q & A
Love them for my first pair
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
These are my first pair of cycling shoes, so my review is to be taken as such. Having said that, I'm quite happy with these. Look, fit, and feel seem first rate to me. Also appear to be constructed with an eye for quality. Buckles, especially the BOA, work flawlessly. Can't wait to put miles on them! Happy cycling.
PS - The upper on the white portion (I have the white) is quite glossy. Doesn't appear that way in the photo. Obviously, this has little to no effect on performance. Also, fit is small; had to size up 1/2 size. Toe box is a bit on the narrow side, but generally sufficient for my medium width feet.
the MAVIC KSYRIUM ULTIMATE II SHOES - MEN'S shoes they have the sizes in, I'm assuming, as US sizes???? and not UK correct. Respond at your earliest I would like to order asap...white and black size 9 US or 43...thank you so very much
If you want a size 9, order the 42-2/3.
They also run narrow.
