BikeRadar verdict

60.0 out of 5 stars

"Ridiculously comfortable option for those who don't like to be 'glued' to their flat pedals"

Sunday, February 19, 2012 12.00pm By

The Links shoe from Teva has a sticky Spider 365 rubber sole. It doesn’t offer the solid, immovable feel that market leaders Five Ten have become renowned for, but something with a little more ‘float’ on the pedal. 

This isn't a bad thing though, and there’s still plenty of grip, but the Links allow you to adjust your feet a little more easily, making them a good choice for less race-orientated flat pedal users. The feel of the shoes is more like that of a well-supported running shoe and ridiculously comfortable.

On narrower pedals, we did find that the raised arch of the insole initially caused our feet to ache when we were riding rougher terrain, although we soon got used to it, and we didn’t experience the same issues on pedals with bigger platforms. The Ion Mask technology does a good job of keeping your feet dry which is great for riding in wet climates.
