Pros Good grip, very good power transfer, stiff, durableGrip, protection, durabilityLightweight, fantastic grip, great power transfer, durableInexpensive, offers a lot of protection, balanced gripGood power transfer, comfortable fit, lightweight, breathable
Cons A bit heavier than other comparable shoes we tested, breathability is lacking in hot and humid conditionsBulky, hot, not good for all mountain ridingBreathability is not the best in hot conditionsNot enough grip for very technical ridingLess grip than our testers prefer
Bottom Line A no-slip, confidence inspiring grip, impact absorbing midsole and durable materials make this one of our favoritesWe love how much protection this shoe provides; their weight combined with the tacky S1 rubber was unbeatableA great choice for beginner through advanced riders looking for a do-it-all shoe that balances grip, power transfer, flex, comfort and durabilityCompared to other at this price point, this shoe is remarkable in qualityWorthy of consideration for riders seeking freedom on the pedals and a shoe built for durability and protection in a relatively lightweight package
