LORE has announced that its new LoreOne 3D-printed hard-shelled carbon cycling shoe is available for pre-order now.
Stephan Drake, CEO of LORE, said: “This is an exciting moment for cycling as a sport, footwear, and manufacturing as a whole. The LoreOne realizes the long-held promise of 3D printing for ground breaking end-use products: it is incredibly complex in its organic, custom-built form, and transmits power very effectively due to its novel composite structure.”
“The technology is transformative and almost alien. What matters most is biomechanical performance and feel on the bike. It’s been amazing to watch the extent to which top athletes have been blown away by how the LoreOne dramatically improves their pedalling experience,” he added.
The LoreOne is fully customised to an individual’s feet using MORPHIC® 3D Scan+Print technology. This gives cyclists the ability to scan their feet at home using an iPhone® and the Morphic® App. The personalised scans become 100% custom LoreOne shoes, robotically manufactured in the USA and delivered directly to the rider.
LoreOne pre-orders are currently being processed on the LORE.cc website with printing and fulfilment planned for autumn 2021. The first 277 orders will be part of the LORE Founder’s Kit which includes: the LoreOne custom shoe, three boots (one with a limited-edition colorway), a LORE commemorative pennant, technical shoe travel bag and Founder’s Edition cycling cap. This limited-run kit will be priced at $1900 USD and is available today.
