TWS

Tension Wrap System. A comfortable and supportive shoe is a foundation of a good ride.

We designed TENSIONE creating 18 points of contact between the upper and your feet. Introducing Tension Wrap System, a metatarsal dynamic system that hugs the metatarsal area of your feet from the instep to the bridge for an optimum fit.

Tension Wrap System enables a more controlled transfer of power to the pedal. It holds your foot for complete comfort during the entire pedal stroke.

Be at one with your shoe.

Comfort & Upper

The shoe has been developed with comfort in mind. The design is consciously minimal, eliminating all hardware, plastic and metal parts, that create pressure points. The complex lace-up closure system allows UDOG to use upper materials that are softer and more comfortable when compared to standard cycling shoes minimizing stitching. The upper is made of innovative 3D technical mesh, the material is light, soft and breathable.

Laces

Laces have been carefully selected and tested to identify the best laces for a high-performance cycling shoe. Traditional laces tend to lose while pedaling, for this reason TENSIONE uses proprietary laces that are flat and pressed, firm without air inside, creating a rope knot effect that guarantee the best fit shoe from the most demanding crit races to the longest endurance rides.

LAST

It looks unique because comfort is crucial.
We spent hundreds of hours prototyping and real-world testing TENSIONE.
With a generous toe box that offers extraordinary freedom and comfort. The heel cup shape is deep and narrow with innovative construction to eliminate stitches in the most sensitive area of your feet.

OUTSOLE

At our shoes foundation we’ve designed and developed an outsole of composite carbon and nylon with a directed ventilation channel, integrated rubber heel and toe caps for added durability. A large metatarsal platform for easy cleat engagement. A high-performance stiff outsole engineered for consistent stiffness along the foot; ensuring optimal power transfer bonded to a breathable, soft, and comfortable upper. Stiffness index 7.0

WEIGHT

TENSIONE minimalistic design eliminates all plastic and metal parts, stitches, uses the most advance materials creating a product that is ultra-comfortable, supportive and lightweight. As cyclists we know how weight is important on all bike components, especially on shoes. At 245grams in size 42 TENSIONE is by far the lightest shoe in its category. Helping you saving from at least 50 to 200 grams compare to traditional shoes at same price.

Belle

Belle, comode, ma la taschina sulla linguetta per contenere i lacci è veramente scomoda, posizionata in modo da essere coperta dall'allacciatura e quindi difficilmente accessibile.... per il resto, come ovvio, la regolazione è sicuramente più macchinosa rispetto al sistema boa.... la calzata è comunque comoda e ha una buona rigidità.

UDog Tensione - Black

My first lace up cycling shoes - I have to say that they are very comfortable. Plenty of space in the toe box, as I have a wide foot. I also have a high instep - the laces allow me to get a good fit every time. For reference, I wear a Size 43 Wide in both Bont & Sidi. I consulted the team at UDog regarding what size I should order, as the print out that I measured my foot on returned a much large size. They confidently advised me that Size 42 would fit me. They were spot on. My second ride in them was the epic 235km/4500m Three Peaks Challenge in Victoria, Australia. The Tensione's passed with flying colours! They are now my "go-to" cycling shoe.

First Ride

Had no time to ride outdoors after our Midwest cold spell hit. So I took to the Kurt Kinetic Trainer indoors. Had no problems, with the feet feeling no ill effects from new shoes. Compared to my first cycling shoes leather soles and uppers with metal shoe cleat for my quill pedals along with laces, they felt Great. Compared to the current stiff racing shoes they have a lot better comfort level for my aging feet.

Excellent shoe

Review after my first ride, but I am confident my verdict will not change in the future. Can not say much about ventilation or heat since I rode the shoe with toe cap and Merino sock in March. The shoe is true to size, ordered a 46 which I usually wear (thanks for the guidance, service team!). The toe box is spacious and leaves room for the toes, so no pressure here. Also the lace system, the lacing pattern and the strap help to minimize pressure to the top of the foot. However, if you pull up the pedal you realize the force is diverted nicely around the foot. The sole feels very stiff, the inlay sole offered nice arch support and the heel cap with the silicon print has a nice support, as well. Overall very happy, especially with the design. I also find the lace works very well, especially with the oval lace holes. One thing I am not sure about is the strap for the pocket of the lace, bit tough to fit the lace inside and I am afraid the strap of the pocket will wear out or tear - but that is just a concern of a German ride. In summary I can definitely recommend the Tensione and I am even looking at the Cima.
