Road Bike Shoes

Mountain bike shoes characteristics

Mountain bike shoes have spiked soles and a more sticky rubber to help you bite into the dirt when you have to ride your bike in the very steep parts of the mountain.

The mountain bike shoes can be used with standard pedals or "clip" type SPD pedals. SPD wedges are known to hide in the sole of your shoes, whatever your choice of pedals, mountain shoes allow you to walk easily.

The advantage of clip-compatible pedals is that they allow you to stay in touch with your pedal for more power and stability. That's why cross-country, trail, all-mountain, enduro and downhill cyclists will often choose SPD pedals.

If you prefer a flat shoe, we also have models such as Giro's Riddance, which are compatible with platform pedals with crampons, for cyclists who prefer greater freedom.

For the best of both worlds, choose SPD-compatible shoes with Magped brand pedals, featuring a super-strong magnet that offers the benefits of a clip-on pedal while making it easy to take off!

The price of bike shoes varies depending on the rigidity of the sole and the adjustment system. The more rigid a shoe is, the more energy transfer from the foot to the pedal will be effective. At Velos Cadence, we stock shoes with composite, nylon or carbon soleplate.

 

Fastening systems for mountain bike shoes

 

The entry-level fastening system is Velcro. There are usually 2-3 velcro straps per shoe, providing a quick fit to the shape of the foot. Velcro and ratchet attachment systems are also available at the ankle for a better ankle fit and to prevent the heel from raising the shoe.

The laces are increasingly popular since they allow to adjust at different levels the width of the shoe to the foot.

Conversely, we find among others Crossmax Pro shoes from Mavic with Boa technology. Revolutionary because of its ability to evenly distribute pressure all over the foot and its very precise fit, Boa technology eliminates pressure points, making long-lasting exits much more comfortable.

Some of our shoes, such as the Giro Cylinder Mountain Shoe, have a Boa fastening system and velcro straps on the toe of the foot to adjust the shoe to the width of the toes.

In order to find the right shoe for you, it is important to come and try them in store. Each brand designs shoes with a shape of their own and that may or may not be suitable for your feet. How to know if a road bike shoe is the right size? Your toes must be free to move, but your heel must not lift!
