Summer is just around the corner and many of you will be thinking of getting a sweet pair of new cycling kicks for the summer. With this in mind, we’ve pulled together the best deals on our four favourite XC race shoes from around the web for this week's edition of BikeRadar Bargains.
Giro Empire VR90 —
We've always been fans of Giro's lace-up shoes and the Empire VR90s, the brand's off-road option, also perform as well as they look.
With a stiff carbon sole supplied by Easton, matched with a lightweight yet durable upper, these came out of our grouptest as one of our favourite shoes.
Shimano XC90 —
Shimano's XC90 was one of the most durable shoes on test, and has a super customisable fit, making it one of our favourites.
Sidi Drako Carbon —
Sidi has a huge pedigree in high performance footwear and the Drako's are our favourite from its extensive line of XC race shoes. And you can have a slice of world-cup winning performance with a whopping 48% off, currently at Merlin Cycles
Mavic Crossmax SL Ultimate —
With a heartily sized toe box and plush liner, the Mavic Crossmax's are among the comfiest XC shoes we've used, and with 30% off currently at Wiggle these shoes won't hurt either your feet or wallet.
