Adam Hansen is a bloke who is constantly thinking while in the peloton. He’s gotten his latest lightweight pair of shoes down to a scant 62 grams a piece. The white carbon shoes that have been moulded exactly to his feet have had their weight reduced even further by dropping the bolts from his cleats. Instead, the Look Keo cleats are tied on and then set in place with a Kevlar ribbon.
Some may ask (as I did) why he doesn’t just mould or glue the cleats on? Well, as Hansen says, cleats need a certain amount of flex, otherwise they’ll just snap. And dropping the bolts alone has reduced the shoes by 26 grams
