The shoes are a pretty sweet, and are comfortable, excellent for the hike-a-bike forays, and are bombproof, durable, and they really protect the feet. They have a lot of features that have been incorporated into them for incredible on and off the bike performance, and there is a reason Brian Lopes was dominating at Crankworx in them.
The upper is made from a blend of a quick drying and a breathable mesh, and a synthetic leather material, for comfort and breathability, and is finished off with a toe scuff or bash guard. It uses their dual-density EVA X-Alp outsole and midsole, which has a firmer section where the pedal will reside, for better off the bike cushioning and comfort and on-the-bike power transfer. The tread or lugs use a grippy carbon rubber for traction and durability, and the heel crash pad uses their Energy Cell technology from their running shoes for maximum cushioning. They use their ratcheting P.R.O. 1:1 Anatomic Buckle Closure system, which offers a natural anatomic shape, so there aren’t any hot spots on the instep, and it has an adjustable buckle mounting plate, and then it is completed with two Velcro straps. They are compatible with most pedal systems (SPD, Look, Crank Brothers, etc.), and are available in White/Black (Green accents) and Silver/Black (Red accents) and whole European sizes only (39-48), and retail for $150.
