By wearing cycling shoes you will be able to develop a better peddaling motion, especially at high cadence as your foot will be both pushing and pulling. When you are climbing or out of the saddle you will notice the advantage of pulling on the peddle and will ride stronger. Stiff soled cycling shoes ensure that the maximum amount of power finds it way from your legs, into the pedals and ultimately onto the road or trail. The rigid soles are made from nylon or glass fibre composites in cheaper shoes but most higher end cycling shoes make use of the high strength, amazing stiffness and low weight of carbon fibre. A combination of velcro straps and ratchet mechanisms ensure that your feet are securely but comfortably held within the shoes and ventilation panels prevent overheating. The uppers are lightweight, fast drying and materials used range from synthetic fabrics to yak and kangaroo leather. We stock road and mountain bike shoes from Bontrager, Giro and Northwave.
