VeloNews.com posted a review of the all-new Surge Pro road shoe, giving it a near-perfect 9/10 ranking and claiming that it is “an impressive addition to a crowded field of high-end, race-ready shoes.”
VeloNews technical editor Dan Cavallari tested the new Surge Pro, which was developed with input from Team Sunweb pro racers and features a full-carbon ExoBeam outsole combined with a BOA closure. He described the technology that makes the Surge Pro unique, writing:
“The one-piece carbon sole looks similar to other carbon soles in the forefoot, but as it progresses to the heel, the outsole thins to just a few millimeters wide before widening again under the heel. This cuts down on weight, but more importantly, it maintains stiffness throughout the entire sole. The upper is then free to flex around your foot.”
Cavallari wrote that the Surge Pro performed well for him during two days of riding in the mountains of Italy and also back home on the roads of Colorado.
“As someone who often battles foot numbness, these shoes immediately made it into my regular rotation," he wrote. "The Surge shoes felt sufficiently stiff over the course of two days riding Passo di Gavia, and subsequent rides in and around Boulder, Colorado. And my feet don’t go numb while I’m wearing them, which has only been the case with one or two other pairs of shoes (without the aid of special insoles).”
