Mavic Pro Road shoes £200

Spot-on for climbing

BikeRadar score 4/5

Mavic's designers must have been dreaming of Alpe d’Huez when they designed these shoes, light on the scales but equipped with a wonderfully stiff sole.

Low weight comes at the expense of a flyweight upper, and despite the ratcheting top strap clamping firmly and distributing pressure well, it’s obvious where weight has been saved when heaving on the pedals as the gradient kicks.

Fast-spinning climbers will love the ultra low-profile sole as the 7mm thickness seems almost imperceptible. It's a fast feeling shoe, but probably only for high cadence or high mountains.
