Carbon Sole
State-of-the-art carbon sole offering weight saving and rigidity for efficient pedal strokes.
Very comfortable and rigid sole for transfer of energy
It is very lightweight shoes. Carbon sole also has sufficient rigidity. It is an excellent fit with two dials. Some people may feel the toe tip narrow. I'd recommend these shoes.
Haven't ridden in them yet, but I tried 5 different kinds of shoes and these were easily the best fit. They are very loud, but that's exactly what I wanted!
I have the 15 model, and I bought these to have a backup when the old old ones needs replacing. Like the 15 model (can't feel any differences in the fit) they let the right amount of air in, and the sole is very stiff. I use 42.5 in Nike and bought these in size 43.
Very affordable high end shoes, very comfortable and light. Just take note of the size. I bought one size bigger than my usual size because it tends to be smaller.
Bought this in the sale, great fit and very comfortable and light. I normal buy Sidi shoes but wanted a change. So very happy with them.
These are some of the best bang for your buck bike shoes - durable the Atop lacing system is a good system. Highly recommend and are comparable in quality to anything you would pay a lot more for.
This the second pair of Spiuk Z16RC road shoes I bought. They are excellent value and the most comfortable cyclin shoes I have bought.
Very good shoe for the money. Sizing is a little small, but being on the limit I used heat to reform the upper, according to Spiuk's instructions (15min @ 60C). The shell softened and the initial inconvenience at the front disappeared.
Light and stiff shoes with simple and inconspicuous design which have everything, what you expect from racing equipment. Narrow fit, similar to Shimano shoes.
Quality made shoe that fits perfect. Have used the spiuk R15Rc and so it's great to see that the R16 is even better. Highly recommend the brand
Comfortable and a great look. Fastenings work really well and carbon sole is a big plus, power goes directly to the drive train, no flex. I would highly recommend this shoe
Very pleased with the fit and comfort, especially around the heel, which can be a problem for some other brands. Highly recommended
Purchased these few weeks ago and so far (2 rides) I am happy with them. Obviously I cannot comment on the durability yet but they do appear to be of quality built and look pretty cool. They are very light and comfortable and I am looking forward to using the cool insoles they come with as summer has just started in Australia. Regarding size: I could not find ANY reviews on this particular model and hoped that going up a number would be ok and I was luckily right. I am 42 in Shimano and got a 43 on these and they fit perfectly. Cheers, Gus
The shoes are that good I got the green pair as well for a bit of summer bling. Very stiff and the dials, whilst not boa are very precise when tightening and a simple turn releases. Put simply top top shoes.
Nice look. Stiff carbon sole. More stiffer than my giro shoes (carbon sole). At first, little tight for my right foot but it is comfortable now. Auto Thermo Mouldable Shell is good.
Look good, very comfortable fit, easy to tighten and release to get a secure fit for riding and pretty light too. Having the interchangeable summer and winter insoles is a great feature too!
Having only worn the shoes for one 35km ride at the time of writing I can't comment on long term comfort or performance. The shoes are well made and the uncomplicated moulding process (no heating required) is a plus. The sole seems stiff enough and overall fit is good. The Atop lacing system lacks incremental loosening adjustment unlike the high end Boa products which is a negative for a high end shoe. If you are expecting Sidi quality you may be a little disappointed. At the discounted price a good buy though.
Allready tested, after 4:30 hours, the sensations are great. Very comfortable on the foot, very stiff on pedals, the best you can want!
