The deeper that we get into Shimano's new line of cycling shoes, the more that we start to wonder, 'where's the entry-level?' Simp...ly by going in order, the new SH-R088 Shoes fall second in the catalog. However, it retains key features from Shimano shoes well above it. Shimano had one key objective for its SH-R088 shoes: meeting comfort with quality. And not surprisingly, Shimano did not disappoint. The R088s feature a fiberglass-reinforced polyamide outsole construction that strikes the ideal balance between rigidity and comfort. Now, we're all led to believe that stiffer is better, and in some cycling applications, this is absolutely true. However, it's crucial to remember that over the course of a century, that overly rigid shoe will degrade your circulation. So, to avoid the eventual numbing, Shimano developed what it calls its Dynalast technology. This outsole system delivers power to the pedal, while still allowing a calculated level of flex. This is possible due to the sole's variable stiffness and density that accommodates the movements of the arch. Furthering this power transfer are the R088's securing straps. The shoes feature two hook-and-loop straps that allow you to control the shoes' internal volume. Shimano has given these a broad and offset design that makes them simple to grab and adjust while in the saddle, should you need to make any on-the-fly adjustments. Controlling the overall tightness and security is a Shimano micro-adjust, ratcheting buckle. This system allows you make incremental adjustments with an elongated ratchet fixture. And when examining all three straps, it becomes obvious that they all work in unison with the R088's anatomic last design. For the uppers, Shimano used a stretch-resistant, synthetic leather for the support structure. This material is similar to other high-end synthetics in that it's more durable, lighter weight, and better to look at than traditional leather. To keep your feet cool, Shimano placed ultralight ope... read more

Diadora

For a triathlete, the transition is crucial. You want to get in and out quickly and efficiently, and you practice for hours on end... to do just that. The fact remains, nothing is less efficient than trying to put damp feet into fitted cycling shoes. The Diadora Phantom Shoes combine a well-fitting outsole and upper with the ease of entry and exit of a traditional tri shoe. The Phantom shoes are designed upon Diadora's Sport Road outsole. Unlike many entry level shoes with nylon soles, Diadora added carbon-glass reinforcement to its Sport Road Sole. This gives your feet the much needed support for long hours making circles. Working in conjunction with the sole is the Morpho AM Cage. This cage is constructed of soft TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) which securely holds the uppers tight to your feet, so you won't worry about your shoes stretching out after a few rides. The fit of the shoe is designed as a Race Plus. It is essentially the same fit that Diadora sponsored riders use -- comfort and support in the midsole and secure heel retention. The difference is that the plus model features a wider toe box. This is perfect for riders with wider feet, but also provides extra toe comfort for triathletes who may ride the bike portion of a race sock-less. The Phantoms are secured with two hook and loop closure straps. To customize the fit, the straps feature a dual ring system. If your feet are narrow with a low arch, you'll use the second ring. On the other hand, if your feet are wide, you'll use the first ring. These straps make getting in and out of your shoes, when they are attached to the bike, a piece of cake.The Diadora Phantom is available in whole size 37. 0, whole and half sizes 38. 0 to 46. 0, and whole sizes 47. 0 and in the colors: Silver/white/black, Black/silver/white. and Black/yellow fluo/white. read more

Northwave

As soon as we saw the Northwave Evolution S. B. S. Cycling Shoe we were fired up to take it out for a spin. Just look at all that ...mesh! Along with a ton of ventilation, the Evolution features Northwave's exclusive Wood-Lasting Insole. Northwave takes advantage of wood's natural vibration-damping qualities to reduce the fatigue that results from your muscles being rattled for hours in the saddle. It's this kind of innovative thinking that's propelled Northwave to the top of the cyling shoe food chain and is likely to keep it there for quite a while. Northwave used BioMap (Biomechanical Mapping) analysis to design the Evolution S. B. S. Cycling Shoe. Athletes are tested extensively to help Northwave design products that work in perfect synergy with the body's systems. This testing ensures optimal fit, comfort, and performance. Biomap testing contributes to every design aspect of the shoes, including cut design, seam positioning, and material selection. What all this means is shoes that work with your body to optimize performance. What it really means is that you go stronger, faster, and farther. One of the most annoying problems with a lot of the shoes we've demoed is their tendency to feel loose about an hour into the ride. The S. B. S. (Step By Step) ratcheting system eliminates this problem by providing stable closure that won't come undone or loosen up while you ride. It allows you to dial in a precise fit so you can maximize pedaling efficiency without having to deal with hot spots and blisters. The Tenso Strap system lets you make fast, precise adjustments to the fit of the shoe while you're still on the bike. Northwave is even able to ensure proper strap alignment by using over-injected material on the sides of the Tenso strap that guides the strap into place while you make quick adjustments. The carbon fiber soleplate is much lighter than other, less costly sole materials. It also allows Northwave to reduce sole thickness for direct power transfer from your... read more

Sugoi is known for making sure that you remain fully-protected from the elements through its extensive accessory line, and the new... Zap Shoe Covers take this concept one step further. With the Zaps, you get the same foul-weather foot and ankle coverage as with Sugoi's other covers, but you also receive an extensive reflective paneling design that stresses visibility in low-light conditions. Sugoi constructed the Zap Shoe Covers from a foot- and ankle-conforming two-ply stretch laminate. The composition of this stretchy material works to repel water, mud, and wind as you make that daily commute, ensuring that your feet stay protected from the elements. The outer-layer of this fabric is reflective polyurethane, which works to effectively repel rain and wheel spray, as well as to keep you seen by motorists in low-light riding conditions. Finishing details of the shoe covers include offset side zippers that eliminate Achilles tendon pressure, as well as an open bottom design that works with a variety of cycling shoes. A single hook-and-loop strap provides a secure fit across the sole. The Sugoi Zap Shoe Covers are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the Reflective colorway. read more

SIDI
$189.95 $104.47

When you get into a pair of Sidi shoes, you quickly realize that some things get better with age. Sidi will be the first to tell y...ou that 50+ years in the game has given it creative license to make some of the best cycling shoes on the market. We agree, and the new Duran Shoes confirm our assertion. As with most things, the devil is in the details. However, Sidi must have performed an exorcism on the Duran, because the details flow seamlessly towards perfection. Starting with the securing configuration, the Duran features three Velcro straps along the upper. This system allows a fully-tuneable fit both pre-ride and on-the-fly. It fits into what Sidi calls its last/foot form technology, where the bottom two straps control the snugness of the fit at the metatarsal and instep areas. These straps are best adjusted before you hit the trail, and left alone thereafter. The top strap is what the design dictates as the entry and exit adjustment point. Together, the three strap system eliminates any internal foot slip that depreciates your efficiency. To further control slippage, Sidi has placed its signature heel cup at the aft position of the shoe for reinforcement. Basically, it keeps the foot in the perfect position on hard up-strokes and while climbing out of the saddle. As a result, you'll be powering comfortably and precisely with the ideal, comfortable volume inside the shoe. Further along the lines of comfort, Sidi has given the Duran more ventilation than any other shoe in its 2013 line. This means that your feet won't be susceptible to sweltering conditions, and you can hit the trail all day without worries of swamp foot. And while the high ventilation makes the Duran the perfect summer shoe, Sidi also prepared them for winter. Positioned at the toe, Sidi fitted the Duran for two toe spikes to provide traction in muddy conditions. The Sidi Duran Shoes are available in the color Black/black and in odd and even sizes ranging from 38. 0 to 50. 0. Please note th... read more

Winter riding is becoming more and more popular with the rising of the fat bike tide, and this presents riders with the challenge ...of how to protect their feet. Yes, neoprene shoe covers exist, but they're not intended for snow submersion or other extreme conditions you may encounter when you're 10 miles out in the forest. The Gore-Tex-lined Shimano SH-MW81 Winter Cycling Shoe is more than up to the task, however, of keeping your feet dry and keeping you going when you're out in the wintery boonies. Shimano offers one of the widest ranges of shoe lasts (or shapes) in the industry. So, to clarify, the SH-MW81 uses the Volume Performance last -- making it wider in the toe box and across the ball of the foot. This gives it a fit that emphasizes comfort and stability, and allows room for thick socks and custom orthotics. The three hook-and-loop straps provide ample security for your foot, and their offset positioning prevents unnatural pinching and pressure. Additionally, they won't freeze or get clogged with snow like a buckle system might. The MW81 Shoes have a fiberglass-reinforced polyamide sole that's stiff, but flexes enough for comfort when you trudge through waist-high drifts or stop into the local coffee shop. The upper is constructed of tough, stretch-resistant synthetic leather, and reflectors on the back and sides of the shoes increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. read more

We don't have to tell you that triathlon shoes are a whole different ballgame than traditional cycling shoes. And luckily for your... feet, Giro already understands the fundamental differences. With Giro's Mele Triathlon Shoes, you receive the ideal blend between comfort and power -- easier said than done. To achieve this golden ratio, Giro engineered the Mele Triathlon shoes to ride the line between comfort and rigidity. As you've probably experienced, triathlon shoes tend to lean towards one polar extreme or the other. In our experience, we find that most manufacturers develop the outsole as stiff as possible, only to later compensate with the upper design. However, through its partnership with Easton in the development of the Mele's EC70 carbon fiber outsole, Giro was able to integrate both properties, seamlessly. The EC70 outsole features a low stack-height that dramatically reduces weight, while still retaining an impressive level of stiffness. But, if the sole is too stiff, your feet are going to suffer on the running leg of the course. That's where EC70's fiberglass composite comes in. This element of the construction permits just enough flex over the arch to maintain a consistent level of blood flow. Even further along the lines of comfort, Giro and Easton designed the transition point between the outsole and the upper to allow 'spill over.' Instead of wrapping up the corners of the carbon, the Mele greets the ball of the foot with the upper. This means that when your feet either swell or expand, say when you stand on the pedals, the EC70 outsole permits the room for this expansion to occur. So, you can say goodbye to hot spots and one of the most common points of abrasion. You'll also find that the flow of thoughtful designs carries over to the insole and uppers of the Mele. Starting at the uppers, breathability is the name of the game. Take a look, and you'll see that a majority of the surface area is constructed from air mesh. For the rest of the uppers... read more

You may not ride for the glory of the podium, but you still need cycling shoes that are stiff and comfortable, and that help to ma...ximize power transfer to the pedals. Ideally, they won't put too large of a dent in your wallet, either. Diadora's Trivex Plus features and fit are ideal for the rider who puts in long hours in the saddle.First, the Trivex Plus was constructed upon Diadora's Performance Road Composite Road sole. This carbon reinforced sole is stiff for optimal power transfer while you're pedaling. Additionally, the Trivex Plus shoes include a removable heel pad. This pad is made of Duratech rubber for grip as well as abrasion resistance. This heel pad helps to lock your heel in place to avoid slipping, which reduces friction to your achilles tendon. It is attached with one screw and is removed simply by lifting the insole of the shoe. The insole is constructed from EVA and is anti-stretch, which means that it will hold its shape even after miles and miles of riding.The uppers of the Trivex Plus are synthetic leather and feature Diadora's Suprell Tech - Morpho AM Cage technology. This cage, constructed of TPU, keeps the shoe molded to your foot. The fit of the Trivex is a Race fit. This fit utilizes the features that Diadora's professional riders use -- a fitted forefoot, comfort and support in the middle section of the foot, and secure heel retention. You'll close the shoes using an adjustable buckle with four points of adjustment, as well as two hook and loop straps. The Diadora Trivex Plus is available in sizes 37. 0, whole and half sizes from 38. 0 to 46. 0, and whole sizes 47. 0, 48. 0, 49. 0, and 50. 0.

Having a solid connection to the pedals is important, but so is being comfortable and supported when it comes time to hop off the ...bike. This is where Giro's Republic Shoes jump in, as they pull double duty by smoothly transitioning from the bike to the street with ease. In other words, the days of packing a second set of shoes in your bag are over. Similar to other cycling shoes in Giro's line, the Republics were made with a perforated microfiber upper for both comfort and breathability. Giro's molded EVA footbed was also added, giving you a medium level of arch support within the shoe. A lace closure adds a bit of street style to the mix, and the DuPont nylon outsole -- with 2-bolt cleat mount -- provides a stiff platform for efficient pedaling. Walking pads were integrated into the outsole, which provide the necessary traction for comfortably, and safely, moving around once you've arrived by two wheels. The Giro Republic Shoes are available in whole and half sizes 39. 0 to 48. 0 and in the colors Black/grey, Lead/gum, and White/black. read more

The uppers are molded from TPU, thermoplastic polyurethane, a durable compound that hold its shape. This construction helps to keep the shoes tight against your feet and minimizes the stretching that occurs as the shoes wear in. The molded heel support helps to keep your heel locked in place so that you don't slip and slide, and the sole of the Phantom X features heavy lugs to grip the trail so you don't slip.The Phantom shoes are designed to fit with a secure heel hold and a comfortable, supportive midsole in much the same fashion as the X Vortex, the shoe that Diadora's sponsored riders wear. The primary difference is that the fit, Race Plus, is wider at the toe box for a little extra room, which makes them perfect for riders with a slightly wider foot. For retention, the Phantom X Shoes use a two-strap hook and loop system. And, as a part of this system, there are dual rings. If your feet are narrow you'll want to use the second ring. If they're wide, use the first ring. You'll find that no matter what shape your feet are, the shoes will still fit comfortably.The Diadora Phantom X is available in whole sizes from 37. 0 to 50. 0 and in two colorways: Black/silver/white and Black/yellow/white. read more

The big difference when comparing Giro's Empire VR90 Shoes to any other pro-level shoes are the laces. It may seem regressive to p...ut laces on cycling shoes of any level, but the logic actually bears out. Consider the typical pair of hook-and-loop straps with a ratcheting buckle, which contact the uppers in three places. Now consider the Empire's old school laces, which contact the uppers in seven places for a more adjustable, molded-to-your-foot fit. As far as we're concerned, laces are in now, and we won't be surprised to see other manufacturers dabbling in the technology that Giro has rediscovered. The laces secure a single piece of Evofiber, a lightweight and highly breathable material that features perforations for added cooling. The single-piece upper is sleek, clean, and reduces weight. This houses Giro's adjustable SuperNatural Fit Kit, which allows you to fine-tune support to where your feet need it the most. The Fit Kit itself is constructed with X-Static Antimicrobial fiber to keep odors and bacteria at bay. The ultralight and ultra-stiff EC90 ACC Carbon Sole comes courtesy of Giro's sister company, Easton. One of the stiffest soles in the industry, it features a low 6. 5mm stack height that puts your foot closer to the pedal so you can put power into the dirt with minimal lost watts. It's also the main difference between the Empire VR90 and the Code VR70, with the former upgrading to an Easton EC90 sole instead of EC70. The EC90 sole may be tough enough to get Phinney from Paris to Roubaix, but it isn't up for the physical abuse of the trail, so Giro incorporates Vibram's Mont outsole tread to protect it. This outsole comprises a pair of complementary compounds, IdroGrip and Megagrip, which respectively lean toward grip and durability for the right qualities in the right parts of the shoe. The outsole's tread pattern also accommodates flat pedal riding while providing debris clearance for two-bolt clipless pedals, so they'll travel with you between ... read more

For a triathlete, the transition is crucial. You want to get in and out quickly and efficiently, and you practice for hours on end... to do just that. The fact remains, nothing is less efficient than trying to put damp feet into fitted cycling shoes. The Diadora Phantom Shoes combine a well-fitting outsole and upper with the ease of entry and exit of a traditional tri shoe. The Phantom shoes are designed upon Diadora's Sport Road outsole. Unlike many entry level shoes with nylon soles, Diadora added carbon-glass reinforcement to its Sport Road Sole. This gives your feet the much needed support for long hours making circles. Working in conjunction with the sole is the Morpho AM Cage. This cage is constructed of soft TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) which securely holds the uppers tight to your feet, so you won't worry about your shoes stretching out after a few rides. The fit of the shoe is designed as a Race Plus. It is essentially the same fit that Diadora sponsored riders use -- comfort and support in the midsole and secure heel retention. The difference is that the plus model features a wider toe box. This is perfect for riders with wider feet, but also provides extra toe comfort for triathletes who may ride the bike portion of a race sock-less. The Phantoms are secured with two hook and loop closure straps. To customize the fit, the straps feature a dual ring system. If your feet are narrow with a low arch, you'll use the second ring. On the other hand, if your feet are wide, you'll use the first ring. These straps make getting in and out of your shoes, when they are attached to the bike, a piece of cake.The Diadora Phantom is available in whole size 37. 0, whole and half sizes 38. 0 to 46. 0, and whole sizes 47. 0 and in the colors: Silver/white/black, Black/silver/white. and Black/yellow fluo/white. read more

For shoes that are as hard as the trail and as fast as their engine (read: you) can make them, the self-sponsored cyclist need loo...k no further than Diadora's X-Vortex Comp Mountain Bike Shoes. The carbon-reinforced Speed MTB KR sole measures a strong 8/12 on the stiffness index, which means they don't suffer lost watts lightly and they don't transmit the bumps and vibrations of the trail to your feet. The X-Vortex Comps feature the same race fit and Suprell-Tech Morpho AM Cage technology as Diadora's pro-level offerings. Like them, the X-Vortex Comp stays tight against your foot without constricting circulation. Inside the upper, the EVA insert is both perforated for breathability and removable, so you can optimize your level of arch support to your own foot shape. The molded, abrasion-resistant Duratech heel support keeps you from slipping and is also removable if your feet demand it. The closure system incorporates a Boa wire system -- almost mandatory for quality cycling shoes today -- and two hook-and-loop straps. The Boa wire lets you fine-tune the fit at the top of your shoe, where the most pressure is applied to the upper, and the hook-and-loop straps let you adjust the pressure as needed on your mid-foot and metatarsal area. Anyone who's experienced hot spots will appreciate this three-pronged approach, as it lets you customize the shoe's fit across your foot. read more

The deeper that we get into Shimano's new line of cycling shoes, the more that we start to wonder, 'where's the entry-level?' Simp...ly by going in order, the new SH-R088 Shoes fall second in the catalog. However, it retains key features from Shimano shoes well above it. Shimano had one key objective for its SH-R088 shoes: meeting comfort with quality. And not surprisingly, Shimano did not disappoint. The R088s feature a fiberglass-reinforced polyamide outsole construction that strikes the ideal balance between rigidity and comfort. Now, we're all led to believe that stiffer is better, and in some cycling applications, this is absolutely true. However, it's crucial to remember that over the course of a century, that overly rigid shoe will degrade your circulation. So, to avoid the eventual numbing, Shimano developed what it calls its Dynalast technology. This outsole system delivers power to the pedal, while still allowing a calculated level of flex. This is possible due to the sole's variable stiffness and density that accommodates the movements of the arch. Furthering this power transfer are the R088's securing straps. The shoes feature two hook-and-loop straps that allow you to control the shoes' internal volume. Shimano has given these a broad and offset design that makes them simple to grab and adjust while in the saddle, should you need to make any on-the-fly adjustments. Controlling the overall tightness and security is a Shimano micro-adjust, ratcheting buckle. This system allows you make incremental adjustments with an elongated ratchet fixture. And when examining all three straps, it becomes obvious that they all work in unison with the R088's anatomic last design. For the uppers, Shimano used a stretch-resistant, synthetic leather for the support structure. This material is similar to other high-end synthetics in that it's more durable, lighter weight, and better to look at than traditional leather. To keep your feet cool, Shimano placed ultralight ope... read more

Diadora has learned to walk a fine line between comfort, efficiency, and weight in its cycling shoes. For the Speed Vortex Cycling... Shoes, the Italian manufacturer opts for a slightly heavier sole (by 10 grams per pair) that incorporates the same NET breathing technology found in the line-topping Vortex Pro. The soles are constructed of a synthetic mesh and breathable, impermeable membrane that increase the soles' transpiration capacity without letting moisture, mud, and other external elements in. The Speed Vortex Shoes also feature the Vortex Pro's Suprell-Tech Morpho AM Cage technology. The shoes stay tight against your feet without restricting circulation. Inside the upper, the EVA insert is perforated to further promote breathability and removable, so you can optimize your level of arch support to your own foot shape. The molded, abrasion-resistant Duratech heel cup is updated with a griping texture to keep your foot from slipping, but is also removable if your feet demand it. The closure system incorporates a Boa wire system -- almost mandatory for quality cycling shoes today -- and a hook-and-loop strap. The Boa wire lets you fine-tune the fit across the top of your foot, where the most pressure is applied to the upper, and the hook-and-loop strap lets you modulate the pressure over your metatarsal area. Anyone who's experienced crippling hot spots in the toe box will appreciate this variable approach, as it lets you customize the shoe's fit for firm support and spacious comfort at the same time. read more

The uppers are molded from TPU, thermoplastic polyurethane, a durable compound that hold its shape. This construction helps to keep the shoes tight against your feet and minimizes the stretching that occurs as the shoes wear in.

If we were to ask you what's important to you in a cycling shoe, your reply would most likely revolve around the pillars of stiffn...ess, weight, and comfort. However, if we then asked you what shoes embody all three of those design principles? We're ready to be conversing with a blank stare. But, if you're ready for shoes that check off all of your wishlist's boxes, let us make a suggestion -- the Louis Garneau Course 2LS Shoes. Garneau updated the Course 2LS' outsole from the Carbon Pro Team's HM X-Lite to the new Exo-Jet Carbon. Not surprisingly, the new outsole features a lighter weight and a higher level of stiffness. However, what we weren't expecting was Garneau's newly patented multi-vent airflow system. This system consists of air channels that run from toe-to-heel. So, you'll always have a source of cooling air over your feet during frustratingly hot summer rides. And while the carbon fiber outsole provides much of the shoes' rigidity, you might be surprised to note that the Exo-Jet features a thinner construction, and thus a lower stack height than the HM X-Lite. Accordingly, the distance from your foot to the pedal is shortened, resulting in a more efficient power transfer. And along the lines of power transmission, Garneau didn't stop engineering it at the the outsole. Like the Carbon Pro Team, the 2LS features Garneau's HRS-300 technology. Essentially, this design revolves around a nylon-injected reinforcement that keeps the heel from shifting. Additionally, Garneau included a polyurethane spandex support inside of the heel cup. So, with the heel position secured, power loss from slippage is nearly eliminated on your up and down strokes. Garneau equipped the shoes with a microfiber upper. And not only does its rigid composition add to the shoes' durability, comfort, and support, but when mated with the 2LS' mesh ventilation windows, it dramatically increases its breathability. And while this all great, the most substantial new feature for Garneau ha... read more

Ideally, they won't put too large of a dent in your wallet, either. Diadora's Trivex Plus features and fit are ideal for the rider who puts in long hours in the saddle.First, the Trivex Plus was constructed upon Diadora's Performance Road Composite Road sole. This carbon reinforced sole is stiff for optimal power transfer while you're pedaling. Additionally, the Trivex Plus shoes include a removable heel pad. This pad is made of Duratech rubber for grip as well as abrasion resistance. This heel pad helps to lock your heel in place to avoid slipping, which reduces friction to your achilles tendon. It is attached with one screw and is removed simply by lifting the insole of the shoe. The insole is constructed from EVA and is anti-stretch, which means that it will hold its shape even after miles and miles of riding.The uppers of the Trivex Plus are synthetic leather and feature Diadora's Suprell Tech - Morpho AM Cage technology. This cage, constructed of TPU, keeps the shoe molded to your foot. The fit of the Trivex is a Race fit. This fit utilizes the features that Diadora's professional riders use -- a fitted forefoot, comfort and support in the middle section of the foot, and secure heel retention. You'll close the shoes using an adjustable buckle with four points of adjustment, as well as two hook and loop straps. The Diadora Trivex Plus is available in sizes 37. 0, whole and half sizes from 38. 0 to 46. 0, and whole sizes 47. 0, 48. 0, 49. 0, and 50. 0.

When you get into a pair of Sidi shoes, you quickly realize that some things get better with age. Sidi will be the first to tell y...ou that 50+ years in the game has given it creative license to make some of the best cycling shoes on the market. We agree, and the new Duran Shoes confirm our assertion. As with most things, the devil is in the details. However, Sidi must have performed an exorcism on the Duran, because the details flow seamlessly towards perfection. Starting with the securing configuration, the Duran features three Velcro straps along the upper. This system allows a fully-tuneable fit both pre-ride and on-the-fly. It fits into what Sidi calls its last/foot form technology, where the bottom two straps control the snugness of the fit at the metatarsal and instep areas. These straps are best adjusted before you hit the trail, and left alone thereafter. The top strap is what the design dictates as the entry and exit adjustment point. Together, the three strap system eliminates any internal foot slip that depreciates your efficiency. To further control slippage, Sidi has placed its signature heel cup at the aft position of the shoe for reinforcement. Basically, it keeps the foot in the perfect position on hard up-strokes and while climbing out of the saddle. As a result, you'll be powering comfortably and precisely with the ideal, comfortable volume inside the shoe. Further along the lines of comfort, Sidi has given the Duran more ventilation than any other shoe in its 2013 line. This means that your feet won't be susceptible to sweltering conditions, and you can hit the trail all day without worries of swamp foot. And while the high ventilation makes the Duran the perfect summer shoe, Sidi also prepared them for winter. Positioned at the toe, Sidi fitted the Duran for two toe spikes to provide traction in muddy conditions. The Sidi Duran Shoes are available in the color Black/black and in odd and even sizes ranging from 38. 0 to 50. 0. Please note th... read more

Not all trail riding is meant to be casual fun. For those days when speed takes over and you must be at the front, at all times, N...orthwave designed its Extreme Tech MTB Plus Cycling Shoes. These lightweight shoes features an ultra thin carbon sole that minimizes power loss, a Boa closure system for security on the trails, and a footbed that will have you thinking you left the house in your slippers. Northwave built the uppers from a single shell of ultralight microfiber to eliminate stitching for the lightest possible weight, the best fit and feel, and virtually no hot spots or chafing. The ventilated carbon fiber soleplate is thin and boasts a weight of just 60 grams. Despite this light weight, Northwave added thermo-welded polyurethane reinforcements at the toe and the sides of the uppers to protect your feet from stones, branches, and other trail debris. Northwave used BioMap (Biomechanical Mapping) analysis to design the Extreme Tech MTB Plus. Athletes are tested extensively to help Northwave design products that work in perfect synergy with the body's systems. This testing ensures optimal fit, comfort, and performance. Biomap testing contributes to every design aspect of the shoes, including cut design and material selection. What all this means is shoes that work with your body to optimize performance. The carbon fiber soleplate allows Northwave to reduce sole thickness for direct power transfer from your foot to the pedal. Ventilation occurs through vents at the toe and on the sides of the shoes. The Extreme Air footbed allows air to move under your feet for complete circulation. The Extreme Air footbed is also antibacterial to minimize odors. Northwave Extreme Tech MTB Plus Shoes are available in sizes 36-48, with whole sizes from 36. 0 to 39. 0 and 46. 0 to 48. 0. Half sizes are available from sizes 39. 5 to 45. 5.

The ergonomically designed upper, with its buckle ratchet and comfort-assuring offset mid-foot straps, combines with Giro's SuperNatural footbed platform, which allows for adjustable arch support, granting unparalleled comfort for the vast majority of riders. Finally, as a bonus, the walking pad on the EC70 carbon fiber sole is replaceable, because these shoes are designed to last a long time. read more

For a triathlete, the transition is crucial. You want to get in and out quickly and efficiently, and you practice for hours on end... to do just that. The fact remains, nothing is less efficient than trying to put damp feet into fitted cycling shoes. The Diadora Phantom Shoes combine a well-fitting outsole and upper with the ease of entry and exit of a traditional tri shoe. The Phantom shoes are designed upon Diadora's Sport Road outsole. Unlike many entry level shoes with nylon soles, Diadora added carbon-glass reinforcement to its Sport Road Sole. This gives your feet the much needed support for long hours making circles. Working in conjunction with the sole is the Morpho AM Cage. This cage is constructed of soft TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) which securely holds the uppers tight to your feet, so you won't worry about your shoes stretching out after a few rides. The fit of the shoe is designed as a Race Plus. It is essentially the same fit that Diadora sponsored riders use -- comfort and support in the midsole and secure heel retention. The difference is that the plus model features a wider toe box. This is perfect for riders with wider feet, but also provides extra toe comfort for triathletes who may ride the bike portion of a race sock-less. The Phantoms are secured with two hook and loop closure straps. To customize the fit, the straps feature a dual ring system. If your feet are narrow with a low arch, you'll use the second ring. On the other hand, if your feet are wide, you'll use the first ring. These straps make getting in and out of your shoes, when they are attached to the bike, a piece of cake.The Diadora Phantom is available in whole size 37. 0, whole and half sizes 38. 0 to 46. 0, and whole sizes 47. 0 and in the colors: Silver/white/black, Black/silver/white. and Black/yellow fluo/white. read more

You may not ride for the glory of the podium, but you still need cycling shoes that are stiff and comfortable, and that help to ma...ximize power transfer to the pedals. Ideally, they won't put too large of a dent in your wallet, either. Diadora's Trivex Plus features and fit are ideal for the rider who puts in long hours in the saddle.First, the Trivex Plus was constructed upon Diadora's Performance Road Composite Road sole. This carbon reinforced sole is stiff for optimal power transfer while you're pedaling. Additionally, the Trivex Plus shoes include a removable heel pad. This pad is made of Duratech rubber for grip as well as abrasion resistance. This heel pad helps to lock your heel in place to avoid slipping, which reduces friction to your achilles tendon. It is attached with one screw and is removed simply by lifting the insole of the shoe. The insole is constructed from EVA and is anti-stretch, which means that it will hold its shape even after miles and miles of riding.The uppers of the Trivex Plus are synthetic leather and feature Diadora's Suprell Tech - Morpho AM Cage technology. This cage, constructed of TPU, keeps the shoe molded to your foot. The fit of the Trivex is a Race fit. This fit utilizes the features that Diadora's professional riders use -- a fitted forefoot, comfort and support in the middle section of the foot, and secure heel retention. You'll close the shoes using an adjustable buckle with four points of adjustment, as well as two hook and loop straps. The Diadora Trivex Plus is available in sizes 37. 0, whole and half sizes from 38. 0 to 46. 0, and whole sizes 47. 0, 48. 0, 49. 0, and 50. 0. It comes in the colors Black/yellow fluo/white, Silver/white/red, and Black/white/silver. read more

Whether you're a seasoned rider looking for an economical addition to your cycling shoe collection or you're looking to try clippi...ng into your mountain bike for the first time, the Diadora X Phantom is up to the task. The X Phantom was constructed upon Diadora's Sport MTB sole. This sole is fiberglass reinforced nylon, which is durable but stiff to provide support for your feet as well as efficient power transfer to the pedals. The uppers are molded from TPU, thermoplastic polyurethane, a durable compound that hold its shape. This construction helps to keep the shoes tight against your feet and minimizes the stretching that occurs as the shoes wear in. The molded heel support helps to keep your heel locked in place so that you don't slip and slide, and the sole of the Phantom X features heavy lugs to grip the trail so you don't slip.The Phantom shoes are designed to fit with a secure heel hold and a comfortable, supportive midsole in much the same fashion as the X Vortex, the shoe that Diadora's sponsored riders wear. The primary difference is that the fit, Race Plus, is wider at the toe box for a little extra room, which makes them perfect for riders with a slightly wider foot. For retention, the Phantom X Shoes use a two-strap hook and loop system. And, as a part of this system, there are dual rings. If your feet are narrow you'll want to use the second ring. If they're wide, use the first ring. You'll find that no matter what shape your feet are, the shoes will still fit comfortably.The Diadora Phantom X is available in whole sizes from 37. 0 to 50. 0 and in two colorways: Black/silver/white and Black/yellow/white. read more

For shoes that are as hard as the trail and as fast as their engine (read: you) can make them, the self-sponsored cyclist need loo...k no further than Diadora's X-Vortex Comp Mountain Bike Shoes. The carbon-reinforced Speed MTB KR sole measures a strong 8/12 on the stiffness index, which means they don't suffer lost watts lightly and they don't transmit the bumps and vibrations of the trail to your feet. The X-Vortex Comps feature the same race fit and Suprell-Tech Morpho AM Cage technology as Diadora's pro-level offerings. Like them, the X-Vortex Comp stays tight against your foot without constricting circulation. Inside the upper, the EVA insert is both perforated for breathability and removable, so you can optimize your level of arch support to your own foot shape. The molded, abrasion-resistant Duratech heel support keeps you from slipping and is also removable if your feet demand it. The closure system incorporates a Boa wire system -- almost mandatory for quality cycling shoes today -- and two hook-and-loop straps. The Boa wire lets you fine-tune the fit at the top of your shoe, where the most pressure is applied to the upper, and the hook-and-loop straps let you adjust the pressure as needed on your mid-foot and metatarsal area. Anyone who's experienced hot spots will appreciate this three-pronged approach, as it lets you customize the shoe's fit across your foot. read more
