Cycling shoes make sure the power you put down is transmitted entirely through your cranks and isn’t wasted through the natural flex of your foot. Road shoes are especially stiff and a quality pair of carbon road shoes increase your overall pedalling efficiency. Lightweight and slim fitting, they only add to your aerodynamics. They also come in a variety of fastening options. Retro lace ups, crank up retention systems and good ol’ fashion Velcro. Designed to be used in off road conditions, MTB shoes have a grippy sole and generally higher heel coverage for better support on unstable terrain. There is also the option of clipless and non-clipless shoes to suit your type of riding.
