Founder Ed O'Malley talks about why he started VeloVetta, shows off some of the prototype aero cycling shoes and discusses the challenges of starting a new shoe company.
This is VeloVetta
Taking it to the Tunnel
We went to the A2 wind tunnel to test our shoe against many other top shoes and we tested faster than every other shoe. I also give a little update on our preparations for production. Video by Kenny Withrow.
Testing & Production Update
Yes, the pandemic threw a wrench in our plans, but we are moving full-speed ahead now toward production. Here's an update about how we are making the fastest aerodynamic shoe possible for triathletes and cyclists.
Cutting a Carbon Sole in Half
There are a few ways to make a carbon fiber cycling shoe. We cut one in half to see how they chose to do it. We are gearing up for manufacturing of our aero cycling/triathlon shoe!
Making a cycling shoe
This is part of the lasting process in making the VeloVetta cycling shoe. This process stretches the upper over the last (the last is basically a plastic model of a foot) and then glues the upper to the lasting board on the sole of the shoe. The carbon sole is later glued on top of the lasting board.
