Welcome to the upper tier of XC mountain bike shoes, Shimano's XC70 MTB Shoes. Tough, synthetic leather uppers provide support, long-term comfort, and exceptional breathability, while the heat-moldable insoles ensure these shoes fit perfectly. Cross X straps relieve pressure on the top of the foot and the micro-adjust buckle allows on-the-fly fit adjustments. The soles are light, stiff, and provide stellar power transfer due to its carbon cleat plate and reinforced footbed. Aggressive, mud-shedding treads on the outsoles provide sure-footed grip on even the muddiest hike-a-bikes.
Shimano's Custom Fit technology provides a comfortable, glove-like fit to maximize the three components to the pedal stroke: the Pull, the Lift, and most importantly the Drive. Eliminating gaps between the foot and shoe, reducing friction, and stabilizing the foot all add up to one thing: efficient power transfer to the pedals.
