MIDSOLE TECHNOLOGY

TORBAL 2.0

TORBAL 2.0 torsional midsole improves outer edge flexibility for excellent control on​ aggressive descents and corners.​

TORBAL stands for torsional balance. SHIMANO R&D analyzed the micro-movement of the midsole to develop an original structure that provides targeted rigidity
and flexibility in different zones. By maintaining stiffness in the center while allowing flexibility on the sides, TORBAL 2.0 sets a new standard for rider control by changing how the shoe reacts when leaning out on tight, sharp corners.

Maintain Pedal Stiffness

Maintains pedaling stiffness in center while allowing flexibility on the sides

EVA Midsole cushioning

Optimized slit structure with tuned EVA midsole cushioning for enhanced control and comfort; like suspension for your feet.

Trail Riding Midsole
Torbal 2.0

TORBAL 2.0 does for cycling shoes what suspension forks did for frames. It sets a new standard for rider control by changing how the shoe reacts when​ leaning out on tight, sharp turns. SHIMANO R&D analyzed the micro-movements of the midsole to develop an original structure that provides targeted rigidity​ and flexibility in different zones. By maintaining stiffness in the center while allowing flexibility on the sides, TORBAL 2.0 supports pedaling efficiency and​ increases stability and control while navigating breakneck corners at high speeds.​
