This is the Ultimate

With the ULTIMATE, we bring cycling shoe performance to another next level.

Unparalleled power transfer for all your explosive sprints and out-of-the-saddle efforts. In comparison to the EXCEED and AIR we have built in extra stiffness to the carbon fibre chassis. And we are not afraid to show it off – more exposed carbon fibre that highlights the unique handmade fabrication methods that are applied in the ULTIMATE.

The Ultimate GC contender

The shoe behind the Giro - Tour - Vuelta Trilogy

With an already rich racing pedigree, the ULTIMATE makes history as the shoe behind all three of Team Jumbo-Visma’s 2023 Grand Tour wins.  Ridden by Primoz Roglic, Jonas Vingegaard, and Sepp Kuss, during their winning campaigns at the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, and Vuelta a España, the ULTIMATE proves it’s place on top step at the world’s toughest races.

The Development Process

The ULTIMATE is a shoe born from the Pro Peloton. With input from Olympic Champion Greg van Avermaet and currently ranked #1 Team Jumbo-Visma, the ULTIMATE is raced by over 100 World Tour riders. Nimbl’s technical partnership with Team Jumbo-Visma, known for their meticulous attention to detail and high standards of performance, underscored the merit of the shoe and confirmed the power transfer, comfort and fit as best in class.

The result: A classic yet high tech look

The basis of the ULTIMATE is our proprietary monocoque carbon chassis. The visibly exposed carbon is a reminder that the construction and assembly of our shoes is fundamentally different to all other mainstream brands.

True to our minimalist design ethos and with a nod to the Olympic Gold roots, the ULTIMATE is finished in a clean white or black microfiber and available with gold Li2 dials from BOA® Fit System. Later editions include white with silver BOA® dials and by popular demand, a Pro Edition featuring a graphic version of the logo on a clean white upper.
