Leicester, March 16, 2020: Italian shoe maker DL Killer announce the release of their new KS2 performance cycling shoe, replacing the remarkably successful KS1 in the DL killer lineup.

Each pair is handmade by master craftsman in the heart of Italy, informed by generations of shoemaking heritage. 

Designed alongside former professional cyclist Danilo di Luca, our new KS2 are the result of experience gained during a career spanning more than 30 years, including a Giro d'Italia Grand Tour win.

Combined with decades of experience manufacturing carbon-soled sports footwear, DL Killer produce shoes that are technologically advanced, beautifully crafted and supremely comfortable, utilising technology that allows them to be moulded to the rider's foot.

Only the finest materials and replaceable parts are incorporated, ensuring every pair is constructed to last a lifetime. 



A lightweight (250g size 43) performance shoe proven in elite racing, with a streamlined silhouette, a range of winning finishes and incorporating the Atop fastening system, for quick and precise adjustment on the fly.

RRP for KS2 is £395. Available in white, gold, silver, red, and soon to be released pink colourways.

* Carbon hull

* Laminated leather upper

* Replaceable parts

* Atop fastening system

All DL Killer shoes include: 

  • Full T800 3K carbon fibre sole / hull: Precision engineered with the input of elite professional cyclists to deliver significant power gains through the pedals for increased performance. 
  • Rubber toe bumper: Added protection from toe bite to protect uppers and prolong the life of the shoe.

Heat moldable inner sole: Customisable to the foot shape of individual riders by simply heating the outer soles with a hairdryer and padding foot at the area of pinching before inserting foot into shoe.

Ventilation holes: Laser cut holes around the upper foot section promote airflow to cool the foot when riding.

Arch support: Soles engineered with full arch support to prevent excess lateral movement within the shoe, reducing risk of pronation or supination.

Lateral forefoot support: KS2 hull provides both lateral forefoot support and heel support for optimum comfort.

Anatomically shaped: Anatomically designed footbed allows freedom of movement in the toe area without loss of stability or performance. 

Atop lacing system (KS2): The advanced dual directional ATOP lace system allows quick and easy one-hand adjustment to tighten or loosen the fit even while on the move. 


The new KS2 will be available from DLkiller.cc from Monday, March 16, 2020. 


RRP KS2:  GBP395
