XC competition-level shoes infused with S-Phyre DNA.
Shimano Pedaling Dynamics – SPD is a system that performs whether you’re on or off the bike. It makes pedaling more efficient with a wide variety of shoe and pedal styles and the recess cleat makes walking more comfortable. You can pedal with greater efficiency, stability and comfort with the SPD system.
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.
Expanded Cleat-Adjustment Range – Set the initial cleat position according to the difference between shoe size and measured arch length. If the arch length is longer or shorter than the shoe size, the cleat maybe positioned fore or aft from the center line of the cleat range of the shoe by the difference of the scale.
*For example, if the right shoe size is 43 and the arch length measurement is 44, the cleat should be positioned (distance A) forward, toward the toe end, from the cleat range center line of the shoe sole.
Ultread – Meet Ultread, the all-new mountain bike shoe sole technology that delivers superior durability and an extraordinary grip. With an all-new rubber compound from Shimano, Ultread combines precisely engineered tread patterns with an advanced proprietary rubber blend to keep riders planted on and off the bike.
Lightweight Ultread XC rubber outsole delivers competition-grade grip and riding performance that lasts. Their MTB cross-country and cyclocross racing formulated rubber is optimally applied with lightweight outsole patterns to maximise performance in dry and wet conditions.
Specially-shaped sections of the outsole provide excellent SPD engagement and traction when clipped out of the pedals.
Durable scaled arch rubber reliably catches the pedals to maintain rider concentration and pedaling stability between clip-ins.
Hard-wearing rubber compound stands up to repeated scrapes, smashes, and scuffs.
