- CX Carbon sole
- Cleats - 3 Bolt Look Type
ATOP Clousure System
The ATOP closure system allows you to regulate the fit of your shoe from a single dial. The mono-filament design provides even and secure closure down the full length of the shoe, eliminating, numbness and hotspots. ATOP can be adjusted when you ride, letting you relax the fit on long flat stretches and tighten for the climbs and sprints, perfect for all-day rides, races and tours.
External Heel Counter
The External Heel Counter provides anatomic support and a high level of stability for your heel. Shaped to eliminate heel slip, reduce shock and provide a secure fit, the External Counter is essential for sprints and hard efforts.
A padded and ventilated tongue for comfort and breathability. A layer of foam padding conforms to your foot shape with perforations to allow evaporation and cooling airflow, keeping your feet fresh and comfortable on long rides in hot conditions.
CX Carbon Sole
The CX carbon sole is made from Toray MR60 high modulus carbon fibre in a specially configured lay-up. The nine layers are positioned at different angles for complete directional strength.
- 0° : Maximum stiffness and responsiveness.
- 45° : Incredible tortional rigidity for an ultra responsive and firm steering feel.
- 90° : Strength and durability for long life and consistent high performance.
ASL Thermoforming Insoles
Advanced insoles that help stabilize the foot and provide support that prevents bending of the plantar arch and can alleviate knee torsion. The air flow system provides ventilation and comfort even in the hottest weather conditions.
The 3d DMT-ASL insole is made of rigid Eva foam with a ventilated air flow system. This provides stability, comfort and increased breathability even during hard efforts at high temperatures.
The ASL insole can be moulded in the heel and plantar arch areas through a thermoforming process. This helps stabilize the foot and provides the support necessary to prevent bending of the plantar arch while alleviating knee torsion.
About Road Shoes
Road racing cycling shoes are designed without compromise to provide optimum power transfer between your foot and the pedal, a good quality road cycling shoe is a wise investment for performance and weight saving and is often overlooked. High-tech materials and precision manufacture keep weight down and stiffness up, this means your rotational mass is lower and power transfer is higher, resulting in more forward momentum for your effort.

Magazine reviews for DMT Prisma 2.0 Road Shoes - 2012
Review from road.cc
The Prisma 2.0 is the new top-end shoe in the DMT range and, although it doesn't look as action-packed as some, there are plenty of tech features to ensure a comfortable, efficient performance.
The sole is made from Toray MR60 carbon fibre, which also goes under the alias of 40 ton high modulus carbon. There are nine layers of carbon woven in there and it's virtually impossible to bend in any direction. Up-down, side-to-side and torsionally, it's very stiff – we seem to say that a lot when testing high-end shoes. Looks like manufacturers have got sole rigidity sorted these days; we review quite a lot of models where movement is negligible even when the weight is very low.
The sole doesn't extend up around the sides of your foot like it does with Lake and Bont shoes we've tested, so your feet can move a little more than with those. Whether that's a good thing or not depends on your preferences. What one rider sees as stability, another rider might see as restrictive.
You get heel and toe guards that, although they look plasticky, keep the actual sole off the ground as you walk and so avoid damage. I found that they'd slip on damp roads a bit more than rubber guards but, on the plus side, the rear one is replaceable should you eventually wear it right down.
The uppers are mostly made from micro-fibre. It's lightweight and very supple so the shoes conform easily to your foot shape. It's very comfortable too: no worries at all on that front. Plus, the micro-fibre is incredibly easy to clean; a quick wipe or brush will have it looking as good as new. There's no grain for dirt to get lodged in like you find with some leathers.
Huge areas of mesh let fresh air in and the moist air out. I've been riding in these over winter so sweaty feet haven't been much of a problem, but I know that plenty of air can get in because when I've been out without overshoes on my toes have told me so.The external heel counter isn't the most rigid in the world – in fact, it's fairly flexible – but I didn't have any problems with heel lift when riding. Even when purposely pulling up on the pedals during sprinting, my feet stayed firmly in place. The inner section around your heel is a slippery material too so I had expected my foot to slide about. It didn't happen, though, so no arguments there.
Closure is handled by an ATOP cable and dial system that works a treat. If you've ever used Boa, it's a lot like that: you turn the dial and it draws in the cable. When you want to slacken the fit, you just turn the dial in the opposite direction. It just takes one hand so it's easy to use on the fly, and it's not a problem if you have wet fingers or are wearing full-finger gloves.
Systems like this tighten the shoe evenly from the bottom of the laced section to the top. I could have done with more tightness at the bottom because the shoe was loser in that section, but that's not an option here. That's the only real downside.
The tongue is generously padded so I felt no particular pressure over the top of my foot and the insoles are heat-mouldable. That's really easy to do. You put them in the oven for a few minutes at 82°C, sling them in your shoes, put your feet in and do them up. Then you just allow the insoles to cool.
You can do each insole twice although there's no reason why you wouldn't get it right first time. The insoles are pretty comfortable to start with, but moulding them does make a difference, shaping them more precisely to your feet to keep the pressure even and move the comfort up another notch.
The fit is fairly generous – which is unusual for anything coming out of Italy (DMT are based in Verona). I found these wider across the toe box than many other bike shoes. I had to tighten the laces right in to get them to fit correctly at the front and could possibly have gone for a size smaller than normal. That's why we always advise you to try before you buy when it comes to shoes; the best shoes in the world are no good if they don't fit your particular foot shape.
Overall, I've got on well with the Prismas though. As I said, the outsoles are mega-stiff, the insoles and uppers are comfortable, and the Atop closure is very good. At 670g the pair (size 46), they're a little heavier than most other shoes we've tested at this price, but we're talking about 38g heavier that Shimano R315 and 74g heavier that Bont Vaypor – not loads.
The Prisma is also comes in a white, black and red version, and in fluoro green and black. A Speedplay-specific sole is available too.
Comfortable top-end road shoe with a mega-stiff sole for efficient power transfer.
