The new Double Flex Control System features a PU joint in the ankle area studied to improve front and rear flexibility of the leg. The system is attached to the boot with two lateral hidden screws at malleolus level. This special construction allows a front flexibility of up to 18 degrees and, thanks to two lugs that slide inside dedicated pockets, it allows a rear flexibility of up to 15 degrees, thus avoiding back overextension of the ankle joint and protecting the riders’ foot from injuries.
D.F.C. System is the ultimate innovation developed in the TCX Research and Development Dept. to offer an excellent balance between flexibility and protection. The structure, made of a special polyurethane compound, offers the foot and leg to naturally flex forwards and backwards, which preventing from ankle joint twisting.
The system features a PU frame attached to the boot with two lateral hidden screws positioned on the heel counter, at malleolus level. At the back of the boot, the system is equipped with two lugs that slide inside dedicated ‘safety lock’ pockets which allow a back flexibility up to 13 degrees, avoiding the overextension of the ankle joint to limit the risk of injury. The PU frame of the system is thin and shaped around the boot to offer a flat internal surface, which allows a good grip on the bike, and prevent from becoming caught on the bike while riding.
D.F.C. System is engineered to also offer a superior level of protection in case of impact; the heel counter is designed to absorb impact energy and compression and it is equipped with rear and lateral slider to facilitate the natural sliding in case of a fall.
F.F.C. FASTEN FIT CONTROL (Lacing System)
The internal fastening system features long-lasting laces joined to the boot lining and a newly designed padded tongue to offer an increased level of comfort. It ensures that the upper wraps the foot, providing maximum fit precision and sensitivity while riding. The Fasten Fit Control offers an adjustable fit according to the rider’s individual foot anatomy.
FRONT OVER-INJECTED PANEL
Newly designed over-injected elastic front area studied to grant a precise fit in the instep zone.
Over-injected elastic side panel combined with a zip is positioned on the external boot side to allow an easy step in and a superior fit around the foot/leg area.
Quick release, micro-adjustable aluminum buckle joined to the shin plate and designed to perfectly fit different calf anatomies.
