The first time you use a pair of FiveTens you finally realise what all the fuss is about. It’s almost impossible to put into words just how much better they are than other shoes for use with flat pedals.
The grip of the Stealth rubber sole is astonishing, and we found that we favoured using them with pedals with short pins, because we felt more clipped when using long pins.
They’re so comfortable that you don’t want to put your trainers back on when you’ve finish a ride.
They’ve got just the right amount of flex to give good feedback and they provide great foot protection too. Fantastic.
This Sam Hill signature version is similar to the Impact Low2 model, but has extra detailing with a perforated side panel for those hot Aussie days. They also sport a faux snakeskin trim and some coloured stripes – the kind that now belong to Gee Atherton!
