Over the past few years carbon ﬁbre has inﬁltrated just about every area of cycling. The qualities that make it so good for bike design – the ability to work it into different forms, lightness and strength – make it ideal for products like this.
After all, if you’re making the bike as stiff and efﬁcient as possible, you don’t want your shoes to be ﬂexing every which way as you pedal.
The R132s are a stiff pair of SPD and Look-compatible road shoes. There are small treads front and rear to help when walking, and the double buckle and ratchet make sure they stay snug.
Overall, this is a good quality pair of road shoes at a not unreasonable price – but check the sizing as they do come up quite small.
