Garneau a global leader in cycling design and products, and Reebok, worldwide sports and lifestyle company, have collaborated to launch a unique shoe designed specifically for indoor cycling. The new Actifly shoe was designed to enhance the experience of dedicated fitness and indoor cycling enthusiasts.

Incorporating the latest Garneau design and technology, the Actifly shoe is unmatched in comfort, breathability and performance in the indoor cycling space. Featuring a moisture-wicking microfiber, perforated upper, the shoe prevents moisture build-up and maximizes heat dissipation for both individual comfort and fleet use at fitness and cycling studios. It contains synthetic leather and mesh with anti-bacterial and anti-odor treatments that also favor quick-drying. On the outside, the Actifly offers a hybrid nylon-fiberglass outsole that is stiff, durable, and well ventilated.

"We are proud to be part of this great collaboration where fitness and cycling come together," said Eric Sakalowsky, Garneau's Global Marketing Director. "Indoor cycling comes with unique demands. With Reebok, we present a product that is unique and adapted to the real needs of this athlete."

Designed for long-term studio use, the Actifly shoe will be available through boutique spin studios, specialty retailers, online retailers and bicycle retailers this month. It is also online at www.reebok.com and garneau.com at: https://garneau.com/us/en/catalogsearch/result/?q=Actifly . Both Men’s and Women’s shoes are priced at $110.00.

"We believe there is a need in the market for a shoe designed specifically for indoor cycling,” said Kelli McKenna, Head of Reebok Licensing. “Partnering with a leader in the cycling space like Louis Garneau allowed us to create a lightweight and breathable shoe that combines features important to cyclists but also performance attributes expected by Reebok's fitness consumer."

The Actilfy is an element of Reebok’s aspirational ‘Be More Human’ campaign, encouraging individuals to embrace fitness and tell their transformation story.
