BRING THE RAIN. BRING THE COLD. WE'LL BRING THE COMFORT.
Designed specifically for wet winter cycling and cyclocross athletes, the Fasterkatt is the ultimate solution for water resistance, moisture regulation, and comfort in a performance cycling shoe. Constructed with a waterproof membrane and rubberized textile shell that extends above the ankle, the Fasterkatt delivers unrivaled weather protection in the wettest and muddiest of conditions. Our proprietary insole is built with arch support and uses heat-reflective aluminum with wool felt to keep feet warm. The Fasterkatt is also the first cycling shoe to use microglass rubber technology to enhance surface traction while walking or running on slippery surfaces. Say goodbye to shoe covers. Say hello to Fasterkatt.
An ultra-thin sheet of microporous material behind our textile shells keeps you dry and warm in the harshest weather conditions. Liquid water molecules from outside of the garment are larger than vapor molecules created by body heat from the inside. The microscopic pores are smaller than liquid water molecules, but larger than vapor molecules. As a result, waterproof-breathable membranes stop liquid from the outside, but release vapor from the inside for thermal and moisture regulation.
Microscopic glass fibers are electrostatically aligned in the rubber compound to create abrasive protruding shards. These shards are the microglass filaments that create friction on slippery surfaces such as ice, wet wood, wet linoleum and wet metal found on many stairs and floors. This friction is achieved by breaking through the layer of surface liquid between your rubber sole and the ground.
