Enve makes one too, there aren't many in zero offset either.


Sorry, yes, you are right.

Thanks for the photo!!

We are giving our best, finally started with the production of our shoes.

We are taking pre-orders on info (a)berk-composites.com, for our cycling shoes, which finally hit production and first pairs are already produced!
Those shoes were designed for ultimate comfort and great ventilation. Weight per shoe for size 42 is cca. 175g, with integrated insole!
It was developed together with Slovenian orthopedic shoe specialists, and our goal was to make the perfect cycling shoe. After two years of developing and testing we proudly present you our shoes.
Price for pair is 350eur, worldwide shipping. At this moment we offer them in size 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 and 45. Black only
More details are on our website http://www.berk-composites.com



And we also made an aero disc brake prototype, just a few photos:

It is of course already on the road.

Otherwise we are quite busy and slowly growing, and as soon as possible we will offer some more products which are already developed.

We are also working on some tuning for the world tour riders, and hopefully in the future there will be more of our products in the pro peloton :wink:

Will hopefully be starting a new build in the coming months and thinking Ill go with the Lupina saddle. Any suggestions on width or which rails to go with?

I'm 65kg so I'm assuming the 7mm round rails would be fine? Also how long is the Lupina?

I understand saddles are very much a personal thing but any assistance would be appreciated. I'm currently on a Fizik Arione which I find pretty comfortable and is around 130mm width so I suppose the 132mm version would be a pretty close match.

Oh and @Berk any word on when your seat posts will be available for sale? Will you produce a 25.4mm dia version as well for all of the Cannondale tragics out there? Keep up the great work :thumbup:

I have a set of 7mm round and 7x9mm and I find the 7mm is noticeably more comfortable due to extra flex. I am 71kg btw.

Thanks for the feedback @NiFTY. Coming from a Fizik Arione which i have been happy with, do you think the Lupina would be a good match shape wise?

Obviously the only real way to know for sure is to try it out but that quickly become expensive with the higher end, light weight stuff!

I'm comfortable on a Fizik Antares and found the Lupina (150mm) comfortable as well. I also find the Specialized Toupe and Romin comfortable.

Spoke with Berk about 3 days ago, and he said the seat post still isn't quite ready for full on production. They are extremely busy at the moment just trying to keep up with the orders coming in. Hopefully soon.
