The Athlete:

Alex Yokubison is a 23 year old amateur racer based in Salt Lake City. He races criterions, and road at a Cat 3 level. He is a former Division 1 swimmer at Boston University.

Peak Watts:

Alex’s Peak average peak watts increased 14.9% over his conventional pair of Giros.


The ability to produce power quickly is a key component in cycling: sprints, attacks, chasing breakways, starting from a stop light. Alex’s peak 10 second power jumped an incredible average of 17.7%–– highlighting the LoreOne’s ability to transmit power over a much broader range of the pedal stroke than conventional shoes.

15-60 Second power:

The LoreOne delivered Alex an average 7.9% increase in overall watts over the course of all the intervals. Isolating 15-60 seconds there was a gain of 7.15% – Alex could roughly expect to see similar improvements in full 1 hour FTP tests – a game changing performance figure.

One-on-each foot, Conventional vs LoreOne:

With the LoreOne on the Right foot and his Giro’s on the Left, Alex’s LoreOne pedal stroke gained a dramatic 25 degrees of powerband over his conventional shoe.

He experienced earlier initiation at the top of the stroke.

Alex also had a deeper, longer, pull at the bottom.

  • 14.9% increase in peak watts
  • 17.7% increase in 10s watts (acceleration)
  • 7.9% increase in 60 sec average watts
