Placed well on the lower key end of the Shimano shoe range, the RC100 is perfect for those wanting a quality shoe at a reasonable price.
These entry level RC100 shoes utilise an effective triple hook and loop closer strap. With their lesser features, they come in better in the weight game than the high spec S-Phyre range. In short, they have everything you need to get going on the bike in a comfortable and reliable shoe.
SPD-SL – SPD-SL is a road pedal platform systematically engineered with Shimano footwear to transfer more power from your body to your bike. The extra-wide, low-profile cleat distributes energy more evenly over a wider surface and transfers it more efficiently to the bike, under the most extreme pedaling loads.
Shimano Dynalast – The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedaling. Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles. Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form. Extensive research by Shimano’s R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design with an optimised toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke. Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides, letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.
