Optimal power transfer. The Mavic Cosmic Elite SL employs the brand's Energy Carbon Comp Outsole technology. This sole material is light, stiff, and thin, providing a comfortable all-day ride, pedal feel, and efficient energy transfer. It is crafted from a mixture of carbon, glass fiber, and polyamide inserts.

Breathable. Ventilation pockets are placed in the sole to promote excellent airflow.

Cleat System

The Mavic Cosmic Elite SL employs the three-bolt cleat system. Some of the pedals you can try with this shoe are Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000, Time Xpro 12, and Garmin Vector 3 Power Meter.

Markings are located in the cleat area's medial sides. This serves as a guide in precise cleat positioning.


Lightweight and breathable. This Mavic bike shoe employs an upper crafted from mesh panels with a laser-welded TPU frame. This construction provides excellent ventilation without sacrificing support. The seamless design prevents hot spots and rubbing.

Lockdown. This footwear utilizes a single BOA Ip-1 dial and Velcro strap for its closure system. The BOA dial can be tightened and loosened in increments, while an instant release can also be done by pulling the button on the top.

The dial is responsible for the midfoot and top foot areas' retention, while the Velcro strap governs the forefoot section.

Stability. The upper also features integrated heel support. This design eliminates added weight and bulk while working to keep the foot in place while pedaling.


According to the brand, the Cosmic Elite SL comes with an updated anatomic shape for heel hold and rounded toe box. These revisions are meant to improve comfort and stability.


This road bike shoe uses high-quality Ortholite insole to enhance comfort and dampen vibration.
